Full description
Embark on a day exploring Hoi An on foot, one of the best ways to take in the city’s charm. While exploring the small yet beautiful town, tourists and frequent visitors alike find that it is a place of quiet and peace.

The unique atmosphere here combines elements of Vietnamese, Chinese and Japanese culture. Some of the most remarkable views of the city are from the ancient houses. From here, visitors can catch a glimpse of a long gone past, a more subdued and simple time.

The tour includes visits to Hoi An Museum, many of the town’s renowned Ancient Houses which boast remarkable architecture, assembly halls of Chinese influence, an art craft manufacturing workshop, and of course the must-see Japanese Covered Bridge. An optional stop is at the private home of Diep Dong Nguyen (subject to availability) to view a stunning collection of pottery, seals and old Hoi An photographs. Your tour will conclude at either 11:00AM or 5:30PM depending on your tour start-time chosen.

Despite the heat really a must to do at the start of your days in Hoi An. We had a nice guide who told us a lot about the history of the city. We also had access to five famous sights, such as the Japanese covered bridge and a Chinese temple. Everything is close together, so you don't have to walk far. Finally we have seen a typical Vietnamese show. Had a very nice afternoon!

Good tour

This was a good tour, you get to see 5 main places in Hoi An and the guide was very helpful. We got picked up 50 mins late though and although we were notified, this was when we were ready for the original time, so a little more notice would have been better

This tour was ok but not one of the best walking tours I’ve been on. It was good that the price included a ticket into the old town but then it basically consisted of our guide taking us to the various sites that were covered on the ticket. I found the silk weaving interesting as well as the really old house but it was a little bit ruined by the locals trying to pressure us into buying things. The tour was about 2 hours long which normally I would consider short but our guide was actually quite boring so we were happy for it to end. I was hoping for a little more history on Hoi an and for it to be a bit more exciting! It was the most dull tour I’ve ever been on.
