Experience

Highlights
  • BIke historic alleyways of Hoi An and ride to one of Hoi An's most beautiful villages
  • Cycle through the stunning countryside comprised of family farms, fishing ports and local food
  • Sample tasty fresh local foods such as Banh Beo and rice wine
Full description
Morning is the ideal time to explore the hidden passageways and winding alleys of Hoi An. Meet at the local tour provider's shop at #21 Hai Ba Trung Street. Walk 20 meters up the small alleyway and you’ll see it on your left behind the green gates. Your guide will fit your bike, give a safety briefing and provide an overview of the tour.

Have the chance to photograph the iconic Japanese Bridge in the historic district. Crossing the canal bridge first near the night market, continue to the new metal bike bridge connecting Hoi An proper and its southern villages of Quang Nam Province. Not far from the bridge, visit a local family making Banh Beo using the traditional method. These small, savory rice flour bowls are a common breakfast staple in the countryside. Continue riding to one of Hoi An's most beautiful villages, stopping at a family home to learn about the tradition of family chapels. Your host is nearly 90-years-old and vividly remembers his experiences during the American War.

Pedal past rice fields and vegetable farms along small canals and waterways towards a wooden boat building site. Fishing is still the lifeblood of the province and the construction of these ships is quite amazing to witness and photograph. If the timing is right, you'll also see families gathering to clean fishing nets between journeys at sea. The roads narrow again to concrete paths and your final stops will include a traditional mat weaving shop and a family distillery, where rice wine has been produced in the same manner for generations. Of course, samples for a tasting will be provided. A short ride from here, you will board a local ferry for a trip back to town. Have your cameras ready for great views of the Hoi An waterfront. Once dockside, it's a short 5 minute ride through alleyways back to the local tour provider's shop.

Thank you for a great MTB-trip in the countryside outside Hoi An. Our guide from Grasshopper Adventures (his name was Si) did a good job. He spoke english well and was very talkative. He took us to vietnamese families - and we felt, we had a realistic look into their daily lives. Mountainbikes were almost new and worked very well. A very good excursion - also when you travel with three teenagers as we did. Regards - Kirsten Wernberg-Møller and Klaus Knudsen Pedersen, Denmark

Yen, our bubbly, enthusiastic guide, was a joy to cycle with! She fixed us up with suitably sized bikes that were well maintained and good quality. Helmets, again, chosen and fitted for us. Then took us into the traffic which could’ve been daunting but clear guidance on following her signals helped us feel confident. Out of town, riding on flat, very occasionally bumpy, roads was idyllic after the bustling streets of the cities. The visits to the homes of local craftspeople were fun, interesting and thought provoking. Yen was interesting to talk with to understand the background of what we saw and her English was outstanding! The trip, with it’s beautiful scenery and carefully planned itinerary was always going to be a success but her professional and informative leadership made it superb.

Wonderful experience

Our guide was a delightful, interesting and informative guide whose English was great. He went to great lengths to make sure everyone was comfortable and enjoying the many great activities. Bike ride is easy, flat, with frequent stops and would be perfect for all ages. Bikes were sturdy and in great condition. Our water bottles were refilled while we were at one of the stops. Nice touch. Highly recommend... the ne of the highlights of our time in Vietnam.
