Jack Tran Tours ( Formerly Hoi An Eco-tour) is a local Vietnamese fishing family-run business that shows travelers about the real life of the vietnamese people how they live, work and eat. We specialize in organizing and hosting cultural tours in and around Hoi An. We do this by engaging local Vietnamese people who: provide knowledgeable commentary; demonstrate traditional fishing and farming techniques; and then provide our guests with the opportunity for some hands-on experiences.

Jack Tran Tours provide our guest with the opportunity to experience first hand the authentic daily lives of the local fishing and farming community in and around Hoi An. Our guests benefit through a much deeper appreciation and respect for our people and our way of life - as well as having a thoroughly enjoyable and safe experience with many, many wonderful photo memories of their time with us.

We went on a fantastic tour yesterday led by Liyen our guide; we were first taken on a buffalo ride, then to visit some local farmers & had time on a basket boat & learnt to throw a net; we got to see a different side to Vietnam than what we'd seen in the big cities or Hoi An town.... More

We had the most amazing time on our full day Cultural Country Life Experience. We were shown around local areas and were able to try our hand at some of the local farming activities. We were very fortunate to be the only ones on our tour so we were able to try everything, and they really let you have a... More

But, we had already left Vietnam. Their team so nice they mailed the phone to me in Singapore. I was really touched by this... More

We did the "adventure basket boat and buffalo ride" which was 2.5 hours long. Viet was a perfect guide and all the team on board the boat were hilarious. We had such a fun few hours with them and couldn't recommend Jack Tran Tours highly enough. The spring rolls were delicious!

Tan is a marvellous guide who shows honesty and integrity in everything he does. C-Vietnam Tours offers value for money as well as showing you the 'real' Vietnam. Ours was a trip to remember and changed the affluent Western perspective of the teenagers involved. Friendships were made but more importantly we gained an understanding of culture and way of life.... More

5살 아들과 함께 갔는데 아주 즐거웠습니다. 나무랄데가 없네요. 가격이 싼건 아니지만 가치가 있습니다. 스탭들이 진짜 열심히 합니다. 물고기를 잡지는 못했지만 멋진 사진들을 많이 남겼어요. 아이와 함께라면 강추입니다. 영어를 잘 하시면 더 재밌을겁니다. 주로 서양인들이 이 투어에 참가합니다. 저희 팀에 제가 유일한 동양인이었습니다. Special thanks to Lily and her team. Lily is a really energitic person and hee team was the... More
