Amazing tour, 110% worth it! A couple from Australia recommended us this tour and it was worth every penny. We had a small group (2 couples), and we loved it. Harry and Emily are two great guides, we visited places we would have never found on our own. We tasted so much delicious local food that we would have missed otherwise (you can skip breakfast if you want to have a taste of everything on this tour). The little surprise gift and the end of the tour for our honeymoon made it 110% complete. —> definitely recommended

Excellent tour of Hoi An Harry and Kiwi are excellent guides whose knowledge and love of their hometown shine through from start to finish. We loved the behind the scenes walk-through of local food production and their constant insight to life in the city - fromArchitecture to traditions to current street food recommendations. Don’t miss out on meeting, touring, and eating with these two wonderful humans… I don’t know which is more full - my heart or my stomach!

A Real Gem of Hoi An Emily and Kiwi were our guides for the morning. I really enjoyed the places that Emily and Kiwi took us to. The food tastings were very delicous. The overall experience was 10 stars. Emily and Kiwi's knowledge and fun attitude made it a fun morning. What really made the tour even more enjoyable was Emily and Kiwi's abillity to bring a group of tourist together to share and enjoy the experiences as friends.

Real gem of a tour Our guides Trang and Kiwi conducted a wonderful tour through the streets and markets of Hoi An. The food, the drinks, and the landmark introductions were just the appetizers of the experience. The incredibly satisfying main course was the conversations about life in Vietnam and their personal experiences growing up in this rapidly developing country. You will leave the tour with not only a better understanding of the city's history and modern ebb and flows, but a better connection with the energy of the city, as conveyed through the eyes of people of the city. After all, isn't that why we travel?

A Real Gem of Hoi An This morning I got to experience a small part of Hoi An with Trang (Emily) and Kiwi. It was not only a great introduction to parts of the city I never would have experienced but also some of the food options the city has to offer, including how some of the components of those food are created. Hats off to Harry, Trang and Kiwi for a slick and hassle free experience. It was so good a random crab decided to join our group for a brief period.No need for lunch after this trip. I think we all needed to go rest to cope with our food babies.Hopefully much like Angiee the tour/company continues to go from strength to strength.
