Heaven and Earth was born out of a simple idea: To offer a variety of interesting tours to hidden places in and around Hoi An, different than the usual tourist itineraries offered by travel agencies.
It was excellent to see the countryside and local artisans hand-making their crafts. It was also nice that there were lots of hands-on activities— paddling in the circle boats, helping to weave a sleeping mat, etc. One of the major highlights for us was our incredible guide. She was engaged the whole time and willing to talk and exchange cultures with us. We definitely recommend this tour!

Nice relaxing bike in the countryside, through villages and rural areas. It's a wonderful experience, and very removed from the chaos of biking in Hoi An. The guides were lovely and spoke great English, the lunch was really enjoyable and the bikes comfortable. Highlights were the basket boat (have a go!) and the boat ride home. Also chatted to the guides and learnt lots about Vietnam. Thank you to everyone involved!
