What to expect
After pickup at your Hoi An hotel, your guide takes you on a bike ride into the countryside. Pass by vibrant green rice paddies on your way to meet a local farmer. In the middle of the rice paddy, share a cup of tea and hear stories from the farmer about daily life in rural Vietnam. Your guide provides farming clothes to wear during your hands-on experience in the rice field. Step into the muddy rice field as your guide explains the process of growing rice. Try your hand at farmwork by practicing with a water buffalo plow, and transplanting rice seedlings into the rice field.  Try riding a water buffalo at a small pond, then take a break for a light meal of crispy pancakes with the local farmers at their house. After 4.5 hours, your tour ends with return to your hotel. If needed, motor transport to and from the farm is available at additional expense.

Great morning
Mar 2020
This is a really hands-on (& feet-on) experience! You'll be able to ride a gentle water buffalo if you want, and plough the paddy field with her (her name was Binh, we were introduced). At times you're up to your knees in mud - trying not to lose your balance as you squelch along. You get to experience all the phases of rice cultivation - and marvel at how bad you are at simple tasks like winnowing.
The morning culminates in a delicious lunch - some of which is the rice pancakes that you've made yourself but many other yummy things to eat - and a banana, just picked from the plantation behind you. Perfection.

Excellent afternoon and John was a terrific guide and host. We had a wonderful bike ride out and a terrific time with the farm owner and his neighbor, learning everything I have always wanted to know about rice - all capped off by a magnificent dinner. All in all it was one of the best adventures of our trip.

Kudos and thanks to John!!

Great visit to a rice farm
Feb 2020 • Friends
Our tour to a rice farm was so much fun! Our tour guide, John, was so nice. He made us feel welcomed. We got to do so much, from riding bikes to the farm, riding a water buffalo, plowing, raking, planting, harvesting, etc, It was great! Learning to cook the rice cake, eat it and having a wonderful meal was a highlight. Highly recommend this tour

Must Do...!!!!
We recently did the Rice Farm Tour with Viet. He was professional, personable, had a great sense of humour and was full of knowledge. He taught us so much about the traditional way of farming rice with perfect english. The lunch with the local farmer was delicious as well. The experience was worth while, we had a blast. I highly recommend going on this tour.

Great trip
Dec 2019 • Couples
This was one of the best experience of our Vietnam trip. Our guide Viet was a great professional, enthusiastic, good sense of humour with a lot of knowledge. He was on time to pick us up in the morning, by far the best English speaking guide we have come across on our travels across Vietnam. We would highly recommend this trip to others.
Thank you Viet.

Great Experience
I would highly recommend the rice farm trip. Not only was it very educational but also highly entertaining. The guide John was charming and informative and the farmer was so wonderfully enthusiastic you couldn’t fail to be won over by him. The morning was rounded off with a delicious meal cooked by his wife.

Wonderful trip and amazing tour guide
We did the rice farm tour with John as our tour guide. He was the best tour guide we have had on our trip. He made us feel like we were traveling with a friend from the area. He took time to tell us everything we could wish to know and even took the time to learn about us and ask questions about where we were from. The day was spent having a wonderful time and laughing a lot. We have been traveling for several weeks and this tour and John has been a major highlight that we will never forget.

I went on the half day rice farm tour and it was a really wonderful experience. My guides John and Helen were really helpful and informative and spoke English really well. The bike ride and various farming activities were great fun and I learned a lot about rice farming. All the people involved with the tour were really warm and funny. I totally recommend this tour.
