What to expect
Start your tour with hotel pickup from Hoi An Ancient Town in the late afternoon. It’s a brief minivan transfer to the pier where you’ll board a riverboat for a sunset cruise. Swap the vessel for a bamboo basket boat and have a chance to try your hand at rowing along the coast. Join in the evening’s activities including learning from local fishermen the techniques of round-net and cast-net fishing. Back aboard the riverboat, journey to the mouth of the Thu Bon River where it meets the Cua Dai Sea. Savor the sunset while you refresh with a chilled beer or soft drink. Once you arrive back at the pier, a driver will return you to your hotel in Hoi An.

Best Tour in Hoi An
Jun 2020 • Solo
The tour was amazing! A very memorable and enjoyable experience that I would recommend to anyone visiting Hoi An! Firstly, Jack made the booking process so easy and helped me find the perfect tour for my short stay in Hoi An and accommodated the booking at a short notice. The tour itself from start to finish was perfectly ran and Helen, Cuc and Tuan made it an afternoon to remember. The tour was very reasonably priced for what you get; it included a luxury van (with massaging seats) for pick up/ drop off from/to my hotel, a nice cruise on the boat, experiencing fishing with the locals, a basket boat show and opportunity to go in the boat too, watching the beautiful sunset and even a complimentary beer and some snacks to enjoy with it!! Helen, the amazing tour guide, told me a lot about the customs in the local villages/ surrounding areas and made the trip and very unforgettable experience. If I was staying in Hoi An for longer than one night then I would have definitely have done one of Jack Trans other tours as there is such a good selection and it was such a great experience. When I visit Hoi An again, I will definitely be going on another Jack Tran tour!

Thank you to Jack Tran tours!!!!!!!!! 10/10.

I have already reviewed the sunset cruise but should have mentioned the boat crew as they made the trip so much fun! Viet,was our guide - great English and lots of interesting stories and jokes to share. The crew of the boat included Don, Chung and Binh, all very friendly and happy to chat and interact with us. Only our group 4 of on the cruise, very personalised - great way to spend the afternoon learning about the local way of life and Vietnamese culture. Well done- loved it!

Great sunset cruise with a couple of activities
Mar 2020
We did the sunset river cruise with our guide John who was excellent and very knowledgeable as lived locally. The boat crew were great too. We had the boat to ourselves which made it more special. We we're collected on the riverside outside our hotel and went along the river towards the sea, looking at the fishing village and having a go at casting a net on a local boat. We then had a fun ride on basket boats before having some beer and snacks. We were then taken by car back to the hotel. Would highly recommend.

Hoi An highlight
Went on the Sunset tour with Viet and his team. Great guide who is very knowledgeable and a pleasure to be with. The Captain/Cook makes very good spring rolls and the other crew are areal hoot with their round boat antics
Highly recommended

River Boat Fishing Trip
Jan 2020 • Family
We took our 2 boys (8 and 3 yo) on this late afternoon boat trip (20mins from Hoi An old town) and they absolutely loved it. Our tour guide John was very chatty and fun and got on well with the kids. We got onto a small local fishing boat with some really welcoming smiley local fisherman - who showed us their local farming methods with net fishing. They had different size nets to let both boys have a try at hauling in their own fish (they caught about 5 fish) as well as letting us adults have a go too. Then we watched them manoever the basket boats before we all got in one and got spun around like tea cup rides at an amusement park! Finished with a spring roll snack cooked on board the boat and then headed back to shore for a taxi ride to Hoi An for dinner. Really lovely afternoon activity for the family!

Great sunset
Jan 2020 • Couples
I really enjoyed the sunset cruise with Jack Tran tours. Our cruise took us from Hoi An and down the river where we saw the local fishing industry in action. Our guide’s name was John and he was great. He looked after us in every way and had a great sense of humour. He really tries hard to make the cruise fun and informative and he is really passionate about his local area. I really recommend both him and his friendly crew which included a great guy by the name of ‘captain cook’. We had an attempt at net throw fishing which was hilarious, but the experts showed us how it was done, the way they can steer these boats and balance themselves on the edge of them whilst throwing a net was incredible to see. We even had a turn inside the basket boats which I found a lot harder to control than I imagined. We had a bite to eat which was great and it included freshly cooked spring rolls and a cool drink to top it off. We loved it.
