Highlight of our trip
Nov 2019 • Couples
This was a great experience and I highly recommend this. It is a fun yet humbling experience.
Helen was absolutely lovely- so fun and smiling and very friendly!
They picked us up from our hotel and drove us back which was great.
We rode the water buffalo named Seth, I was a bit scared at first but got used to it. Great photo opportunities and Helen took our phones and took photos and videos for us!
Then we went to the boats and met Nhien, Cuong and Captain Cook who were also great. I spoke a bit of Vietnamese with them and they were really sweet and nice and they hugged us goodbye. It was humbling walking through the fishing village and seeing how hard everyone works.
It was our last day in Hoi An and it was a really nice way to end this portion of our trip. 100% recommend

Great way to spend a afternoon
May 2019 • Family
our buffalo cart trip was great. We started with a cart ride on a buffalo going past the rice paddocks. Then we was able to ride a buffalo which was good fun. Found the buffalo very friendly. Then our guide took us to one of the farms and experienced how they prepare and cook the rice. Great for kids. They got our son to do most of the cooking. I found the whole experience great, It was good to listen to the guide about how they do it with no modern machinery. It made me realise how lucky we are.

Buffalo cart and rice farmers half day
I should start saying that we had an incident as we were suppose to do one afternoon the tour and they completely forgot us ruining our afternoon.

But all of us we are humans and we can do mistakes, so next day we were transferring from Hoi An to Da Nang buy Jack Tran Tours decided to do the tour in the morning, Private, do the transfer by them self’s and offer us a discounted rate to compensate their mistake.

We took the offer and the experience was great. Getting the chance to meet real local people, see how they work and live and share their lifestyle and experiences with us.

We where traveling with our little daughter 2 years old and she was over the moon and she did all the activities as us.

Glad to give them a second chance, they fixed by far the mistake. Thanks!

Fantastic tour and guide! Thanks Michael 😊
We had a wonderful half day buffalo cart tour. We met some fantastic locals who were great fun and we really enjoyed our time with the 'buffalo soldier' and cooking rice with farmer Mr Nhi by the rice fields. Michael was a fantastic tour guide! He's so welcoming, energetic and kind! Thanks Michael for a great day we highly recommend you 😊

Interactive, educational, and fun--with three kids
Jan 2018 • Family
Viet was our tour guide for a three-hour visit--by buffalo cart--to a Hoi An rice farm. After arriving at the farm, we each took a turn riding the water buffalo. Our kids, aged 7, 7, and 3, had a blast. Then, we helped a farmer cook banh xeo, which was delicious. Our tour was rounded out with another farmer showing us how to stoke a fire to cook sticky rice with peanuts. The farmers were super friendly and great with our kids, and we were all encouraged to participate. It was really fun, and Viet was informative, kind, had a great sense of humor, and always kept an eye out for our kids' safety and fun. A great experience.

Very positive experience
Dec 2017 • Family
My family truly enjoyed the buffalo cart trip. Special thanks to our tour guide, Ms. Lily who has been very friendly, experienced and helpful. We are glad that our three years old son had a little taste of the traditional way of life; rice-cooking, fire-making, and buffalo riding. The farmers are accommodating and welcoming. The place is well maintained and clean so no worries for most tourists.
