Amazing day, buffalo riding was brilliant, coconut boats were so much fun. Lunch was lovely and our guide was informative and friendly. Buffalo was happy and well cared for. Would definitely recommend. Just make sure you have cash on you for tips for all parts.

A unique experience with a fantastic tour guide who truly enjoys her job. The buffalo ride was short but a great photo opportunity

This Eco tour was well planned and executed. My family and I stayed in Da Nang and wanted a day trip into Hoi An. After looking through a galore of options, we decided on this as it was mostly outdoors experiences. Cycling to the rice padi fields and coconut forest through the Vietnam traffic was more than memorable. Our guide, Mr Long was confident and careful. He communicated well during the briefing and throughout the trip. Riding on the buffalo, discovering the water coconut forest on a basket boat, and navigating a roundabout on a bike were unforgettable. The simple local food fare at lunch was the cherry on top.

Great value for the price. Fun to ride through the rice fields. The water buffalo was fun but hold on tight. The boat ride is unexpectingly turnt up but fun. Food was good. Pickup from hotel was a plus. Good half day tour to do.
