        Really great, just divide the starting price at least by 3
        I see most reviews here are from organized travel groups who took this activity via a tour package. We came here with our Grab driver on our way to Hoi An. This place is little bit before the town and he recommended us to take it, but haggle of course. The starting price was 600.000 VND pp (around 25$), but after 2 min of negotiating we cut it to 200.000 (8$). Later, at hotel we spoke with other couple who managed it for 150.000, but we're speaking of only 2$ difference, so I give you this info just to have a clew how much to pay. The basket ride through coconuts is really interesting, lasting for around 30-40 min. You sail in a coconut basket with hundreds of others. Beware, boat can take only 2 visitors (plus a rower), so if you're in bigger party you must split. At some point you'll see the spinning show when a skill rower spins its basket - very good. At the end tip your rower (1-2$), he will take pics of you and tell stories.

        Great Experience from A to Z
        During our visit to Green Coconut Village this week, on 11/28/23, our experience was nothing short of fantastic. From the seamless pick-up to engaging discussions on history, the tour unfolded with a perfect blend of information and entertainment. The guide exhibited impressive knowledge, aiding us in navigation and ensuring we didn't miss any noteworthy sights. What stood out was their willingness to go the extra mile, assisting us with capturing memorable photo opportunities. The tour concluded with a smooth drop-off, leaving us with lasting impressions of a well-rounded and enjoyable excursion. Highly recommended for those seeking a comprehensive and delightful exploration of Hoi An's Green Coconut Village.

        Basket boat tour
        It's a family business and Vu who speaks english is very nice. It takes time to introduce to you the tour and chat about Vietnam. He helped me to book the bamboo circus show which was cancelled because of the flood. He came to my hotel in the flood to give me my money back. I recommand it if you are there for the basket boat.

        Best cooking class and boat tour in Hoi An
        We had the best time at the cooking class and boat trip. We are both vegans and they catered the menu for us and all the food was delicious and there was so much of it that we took it with us and had dinner and lunch the next day. We made Vietnamese pancakes, spring rolls, a vegetable and tofu claypot and a banana flower salad. They made us some steamed rice and morning glory and we enjoyed a passion fruit juice and coconut desert. Everything was amazing and our guide was so lovely. We went to the market to pick up our fresh food, spent an hour in a basket boat enjoying crabbing, karaoke displays and watching the guys spin around in the boats and then went back for the cooking class. We loved every minute of it and highly recommend it.

        Highly recommend with friends!
        The Green Coconut Village Cooking Tour has been a highlight of my trip in Vietnam. Vu and his family were very welcoming and made sure that we were all enjoying ourselves as well as teaching us about Vietnam’s food culture. Ni guided our tour who was full of energy and easy to follow throughout the day. She first took us to a local market to purchase the local produce that we were going to cook with and then had a ride on the Coconut Boats which was quite touristy but good fun. Ni taught us to cook four dishes which included fried rice paper rolls, chicken salad, Vietnamese pancake and fish. All delicious Vietnamese recipes! I’d highly recommend this tour.

        Vu's team provided an absolutely incredible experience, with such friendly and welcoming people to show us the way. You're shown the way the locals get to live at the market and then get to go experience the brilliant coconut forest and have lots of fun. Ni was an excellent tour guide and instructor, and the food was incredible and easy to make. Would recommend to anyone.

        An afternoon like a local in Hoi An
        We felt like home with them, very nice and genuine people. We first did a tour of hoi an market to choose the food to cook, then we had an entertaining coconut ride (you'll find floating karaokes and dancing people along the way!). Finally we did the cooking class: the chef is very good in explaining everything and help in case of need (I usually don't cook at home and was able to make a very good meal). We the ate what we cooked and chatted a bit. After that they brought us back to the hotel. Definitely recommended!

      Vu is amazingly hospitable and accommodating, explaining the history and culture of the village in detail. Few other tours offer the same amount of activities, making the cost well worth it. The boat ride was one of the most memorable parts of our trip to Hoi An, with charismatic boat tour guides that made the journey down the river funny and engaging. You are able to do many activities such as boat spinning and crab fishing, and the guides encourage you to take many photos! Finally, Vu gave us many great recommendations which contributed significantly to our busy day in Hoi An. Thank you Vu for the amazing experience!

      We had a wonderful time on our basket boat ride with Vu's company, Green Coconut Village. From start to finish, it was a very informative, enjoyable experience. We were met by Vu, the owner of the company. He shared a lot of details about the local villages with us before our boat ride. We also got a welcome drink. He was so kind and had excellent English. The basket roat ride was a thrilling experience. A big shout out to our boat rider Viet who made the ride so fun for us. We spent an hour on the boat. Viet took lots of great photos, demonstrated crab fishing and had such a high level of energy the whole boat ride. We also saw local fishing and a dancing demonstration in the basket boats. There was music to enjoy along the way too. We were greeted by Vu back at the shore, who we sat with and enjoyed a drink together. He shared lots more information about the local villages and history of the towns people with us. I would highly recommend Green Coconut Village - It was such a smooth and enjoyable process from start to finish. Speaking with Vu was an eye opening experience. He was so welcoming and paid a huge amount of attention to detail. 5 stars for this amazing experience 🌟 🌟🌟🌟🌟

      We were greeted by the owner whos English was excellent and his enthusiasm about his business was infectious. The guide followed suit and kept the laughter rolling as well meandered down the river. For a small tip you can have the boat be span round walzer-esque and its well worth it. Couldn’t recommend more

      Before making our way, we found Vu through google/tripadvisor and contacted him through Whatsapp. His price was extremely fair compared to the hotel and other tour companies. We decided to take a Grab (not realising he offered pickup) and driver took us to another tour operator without our knowledge (some taxi and hotel companies team up to gain commission for each other), luckily we called Vu and he came to pick us up straight away before we got ushered into another group who charged double or more. He was very friendly and speaks good english, an honest man who tells you what is included in your trip right from the start. If you watch the boats spinning then its part of the price, if you’d like to have your boat spinned or to join in with net throwing then this would be at an extra cost or tip. Our boat guides were friendly and fun who made us feel comfortable. He has even recommended us places to eat in Hoi An when we have needed someone to ask! Just a whatsapp away….Vu is a genuine person who cares about making his customers happy and the reviews says it all! Thank you Vu for looking after us.

      Must go activity in Hoi An. I am traveling with a toddler and it was raining quite heavily but that did not steer people from not doing the tour. I booked a coconut boat trip from my hotel and this included transport from the hotel.
      It was fun and we enjoyed it a lot. Many people were spinning the boat dancing around a fast paced song. The drivers are well experienced and navigated expertly through the dense coconut plantations in the waters. There is also crab fishing to be done where you are giving a small fishing stick with some bait to catch crabs ( you release them back in the water post catching).

      Overall a great experience for a rainy day.

      This was a really fun experience! We were collected from our hotel and driven to a lovely location on the river. Va and his wife greeted us with a cold welcome drink. Then we set off in our little bamboo boat with Nam. It was lovely travelling along the river, seeing all the old fishing boats. The entertainment was really good, men dancing in the boats, fisherman casting a net and crab fishing. We really enjoyed this activity and I would recommend this to anyone visiting Hoi An.

      We had an amazing afternoon in the coconut Forrest as a last minute addition to our trip. The owner Vu was very welcoming and has a beautiful family who were just as lovely. We were welcomed with some local sweets and a passion fruit juice which were delicious. Vu has great English and explained everything very well and provided great information for the rest of our trip. The basket boat tour was extremely fun and definitely need to come back again. 10/10 activity you must go through Vu as it’s such a personal and special experience for a very good price! Loved every minute.

      There are many tour providers for this around the area, but there is a reason this one is the best rated. Vu and his wife’s family business focus around customer experience and do not rush tourists. We had a wonderful time, on this tour - the spinning boat, some fishing for crabs and our captain, Tan, was very funny and took photos and videos for us. We booked through WhatsApp and Vu was very responsive + accommodating as we had to change our pick up time last minute. Bonus: it was very reasonably priced too, they could probably charge a little more!

      Whole experience was wonderful from start to finish! Vu, the tour guide, was an excellent communicator - messaging me in advance advising me of what I need and when he would pick me up! On the way to his village, he shared so many insights about his village and upbringing, as well as the background to the boat rides. He was incredibly professional and personable, and has an undeniable passion for sharing his culture with travellers :) The boat ride itself was such a fun experience - unmissable for anyone travelling to Hoi An! You get the opportunity to engage in some fishing for crabs, get some cute photos taken in the midst of some beautiful scenery, get to watch the spectable of the fishing nets being cast, and (optionally) can be spun around in the boat at warp speed (which is daunting but quite fun - trust me).
