    HoiAn Village Experience
    Stop: 5 hours - Admission included
    After pickup at your Hoi An hotel, your guide takes you on a bike ride into the countryside. Pass by vibrant green rice paddies on your way to meet a local farmer. In the middle of the rice paddy, share a cup of tea and hear stories from the farmer about daily life in rural Vietnam. Local Farmer provides farming clothes to wear during your hands-on experience in the rice field. Step into the muddy rice field as your guide explains the process of growing rice. Try your hand at farm-work by practicing with a water buffalo plow, and transplanting rice seedlings into the rice field. Try riding a water buffalo at a small pond, then take a break for a meal of crispy Rice pancakes with the local farmers at their house. After 4.5 hours, your tour ends with return to your hotel.

Mr. Hoang was such an incredible host. He was kind and patient. Eager to tell us about his family. We loved his explanations of how rice is brought from farm to table. We got to see the entire process first hand and we learned so much. The rice pancakes he and his wife made for us were FANTASTIC. One of my favorite meals of the trip. It was a relaxing experience and he even accommodated our two young children (ages 4 and 2). Thank you mister Hoang. I hope to see you someday again!

From the moment I contacted Mr Hoang to book a tour he was super helpful. There was a group of us that went on the rice farming experience that included a bike ride through farmland, explanation and opportunity to experience farm life, and a fun cooking class with an absolutely delicious and generous meal to finish. None of us will look at a bowl of rice the same way again and will very much appreciate every mouthful! I would highly recommend Mr Hoang and his lovely family and intend to use his company again. Thank You!

This was a great way to begin to understand the history of Hoi An and to also experience some of the traditional agricultural methods for harvesting and refining rice and for growing vegetables. Also includes a great cookery demonstration and lovely full lunch with many dishes to try at the Tra Qué Vegetable Village restaurant.

Hoang is a great guide, extremely well informed about the history and culture of the area, and also very considerate and kind in looking after his guests. Highly recommended!

Mr Hoang was most friendly and patient in bringing us through an authentic farming experience which included the traditional field plowing with a water buffalo and explaining to us how rice grains are processed and cooked. We were also treated to a gastronomical experience as he and his family whipped up a scrumptious meal of rice pancakes and Vietnamese fried spring rolls for dinner. What a delight indeed!
