In 2015 my wife and I had an a fantastic day with Xuan Tu. Having recommended her to our friends for the past 18 months we again returned to Hoi An this month with our parents and children (7 of us aged from 12 to 68). Our entire family was blown away by our experience and our parents are now keen to go back and spend more time with Xuan Tu.
Two of us had knee problems and Xuan Tu arranged for a van to pick us up from our hotel. Our first stop was a boat that took us to Cam Kim Island. There we picked up bikes and we cycled around the island. The best thing about this tour is that you have the opportunity to meet and (through Xuan Tu) talk to local people.
We visited a boat building business, a family that makes rice paper (we all loved having a go at making rice paper and talking to the family), a family that makes mats, a wood carving master and we enjoyed biking through the rice paddies. For lunch we went to Mr Son (look him up on TripAdvisor – food is amazing and affordable) and then we explored Hoi An.
Another reason to book a tour with Xuan Tu is that she supports local people, local businesses and helps protect and sustain traditional crafts. Each time you visit local people you support their livelihood and it is incredible experience learning about their family history and having an opportunity to support the family.
That night we felt privileged to be invited to Xuan Tu’s house where her mum had prepared a beautiful meal for us. We loved our evening, the company, conversation, the beautiful songs of Mrs Mai and experiencing Da Nang that evening. Next time we will definitely stay with Xuan Tu at her homestay.
We all can not speak highly enough of Xuan Tu and her team. She is incredibly dedicated to her clients, business and local community, and she goes through great lengths to ensure that everyone on her tours has an amazing experience.
Our parents will definitely stay in touch with her as will we. If you are looking for a wonderful experience look no further – Xuan Tu and her team are #1 on TripAdvisor for one reason only. They are the best.
