Incredible day seeing the real Vietnam

We spent the day with Xuan Tu and Duy and we had a wonderful time away from the crowds of Hoi An. We started the day by taking the boat across to Cam Kim Island and visited the boat builders and then cycled around all the laneways past the rice fields ( a special request as my first time to see rice up close!!) and visiting 2 local families to make rice noodles and do mat weaving. A behind the scenes local tour which was just what we wanted and so close to Hoi An. We then spent the afternoon walking around the Old Town and so good to learn all the stories and history of some of the old houses that we had just walked past all week! Xuang Tu also appreciated our love for food and so we had a fantastic afternoon of eating authentic Vietnamese dishes at a local food stall, a strong delicious coffee down a little alleyway with the best Baguettes delivered by scooter, plus a stop at a local cake maker!
A wonderful day and can not recommend enough. Just wish we had done this on the first day not the last! They also offer many other tours so be sure to book early before you leave home to ensure you get a guide booked in. This is a small business which is what makes it special. Wonderful guides – thank you Xuan and Duy!!
