A Recent Review of this tour

Thuan provided a great tour! He picked us up from our hotel in Da Nang, and had a driver take us to Hoi An. We biked to the rice farm, rode the water buffalo, plowed, winnowed, seeded, and planted parts of the rice paddy. You will get dirty doing this tour, but it's absolutely worth it! Thuan's English is very good. He helped us afterward when our flight was delayed, calling our other hotel to arrange transportation for us and checking us into the flight. He really went above and beyond all the way!
