Cooking Class Center

Greet your guide in a central Hoi An location and climb atop your bicycle to begin your explorative ride through the verdant beauty of the countryside. Admire luscious landscapes thronged with paddies and winding waterways and stop at several quaint towns to gain insight into indigenous cultural traditions. We will cycle to a farming area called Tra Que Vegetable Village, which supplies organic veggies for all of Hoi An and nearby areas.

Next, venture to the picturesque banks of the Thu Bon River and embark on a majestic cruise down the waterway. Marvel at the riverside beauty of the area then disembark at a floating island to appease your appetite with a flavorsome and fulfilling barbecue feast. Watch the sun sink into the horizon and cast a fiery glow over the scenery while finishing your delicious meal.

Afterwards, return to the boat and glide down the river as dusk shrouds the countryside in atmospheric light. Approach the glittering lights of Hoi An and cycle through the bustling streets back to your original departure point, where the tour concludes.

Very gentle cycling. Just have to be aware the traffic on the road inbetween country side cycling path. More like village and farm land ride. Followed with boat trip to ancient town, which is very nice to enjoy beer( not included) and food(included) after cycled. TBH , a little bit pricey.

We had a fabulous time doing this bike ride. Luong was our guide and she was brilliant. I will say this is not a trip for unfit people who have not ridden a bike for a while - which was me! Luong looked after me and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The BBQ dinner was fabulous!

It was pouring rain and they did the bike ride anyway, it was not as long as it would have been. It was raining so hard that we couldn't hear anything our guide had to say, so we just slogged along until the boat ride. It was fun, but I don't recommend booking in advance so that you have more flexibility if there is inclement weather.

We were very lucky that there were only two of us and our guide. He could not do enough for us and his knowledge is fantastic. The river cruise and barbecue finished the day perfectly. The guide took a great deal of care sheparding us around Hoi Ans busy streets!

Biking was leisurely and included beautiful scenery. Excellent tour guide, friendly, and spoke great English. The dinner was what you may expect on a camping trip; the food was very tasty, but family style servings and some eating with your hands...fun if you know what to expect. Bring water!

The tour was good- Luc the tour guide was fantastic and great value. The BBQ with the sunset was a little pedestrian.. We ate on a muddy bank surrounded by flotsam, detritus and cow manure!! Apart from that a worthwhile trip and the food we had was good.

Denise K
, Jan 2015
Definitely would not recommend this to anyone. No helmets supplied (despite this being on the voucher), rode through busy street in town at start of ride (which was not planned as we had young children on this tour and booked this for a "countryside bike tour through rice fields") then got on a small boat for a 'riverside cruise and BBQ' (on an uninhabited riverbank opposite where the bike ride ended with no hand washing or toilet facilities and food cooked on a portable pot of coals on the riverbank). Only drinks available with dinner were beers as we had used up our one bottle of water already (mostly to wash our hands). Then had to re-board the boat for a 40 minute ride back to Hoi An with NO LIGHTS - at night! Luckily we found the humour in the situation and made it home in one piece. We have done other bike tours in other countries that were the highlight of our trips, but this was memorable only because of how bad it was. Our kids joked we were never going to survive the night and, judging by the non-existent safety and hygiene standards, this may have been a possibility. Both our guide and the boat driver were trying their hardest but this tour is not at all the professional standard we have come to expect from Viator.

Richard L

Great time and great to see a little of the countryside. Our only comment was that when you book ....and you print the receipt it states that you must reconfirm. This is tough and somewhat confusing since we paid the day before. So when we showed up at the Google Cafe no one was there. That is when I read the fine print about reconfirming. When I called the number on the receipt no one answered. Fortunately the chef who was at the cafe called Zoom Zoom and we were on our way....albeit 20 minutes later. Richard
