Lovers of architecture and ancient civilizations will not regret a day tour to the South of Vietnam to visit the My Son Hindu Sanctuary, a cluster of partially ruined temples that have long been abandoned, though once a thriving religious site of the early Champa tribe. Recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the sanctuary features stone sculptures of Hindu deities and towers amid the tropical jungle. History buffs and furniture enthusiasts would also not want to miss the second stop of this day tour - a trip to the Kim Bong Carpentry Village via boat, a traditional yet lively village that boasts of unique carpentry styles and quality products that you could take home as souvenirs! Accompanied by a local English speaking guide, you're sure to discover much about both old and existing communities that play important roles in the development of the country. Enjoy a light lunch as you cruise back to the Nguyen Hoang Pier, from where you can continue the rest of your day's itinerary as you please.

What people are saying about History Tours in Hoi An
The tour was arranged perfectly. Tour guide speaks great English and maybe some Chinese too. (It was a English tour)
However, we thought we were gonna see the sunset at My Son to get some cool photos during the magic timing. It was actually happening on the boat to Hoi An old town. We still got some very cool photo at My Son. Highly recommended this tour.
We did street food tour at Hanoi and really enjoyed it so decided to do another food tour at Hoi An. Our tour guide is Christine, a very nice lady who can speak good English. The food is a lot nicer than the one we bought from the night market the night before. It’s a great way to understand the local culture and history. Highly recommend this tour.
Foods always deeply connected to local culture. We tried 9 different kinds of food tonight.Almost each of them has its own story. We know more about Hoi An's history after joining this tour. BTW, our tour guide,Christine's English was extremely great. She was so friendly and professional. I really recommend people to join this tour. But don't forget to empty your stomach before starting this tour or you might be too full!!!
First ever food tour and it was amazing! Our guide Gum spoke really fluent English and was very knowledgeable about the local culture. She was very interactive throughout the whole tour, and introduced us to many good food in Hoi An! As you would need to walk from place to place, you will have time to digest your food along the way, so feel free to eat to your content if you’re up for it! The boat ride along Hoai River was very tranquil and the bingo game at the end of the tour was really fun too! My dad was super hyped for it, and guess what, he was the winner of the game! How lucky (:
Absolutely recommended, especially as early in your Hoi An stay as possible. We learned so much about central Vietnamese cuisine, got to taste a heap of different dishes at restaurants that specialise in them, plus the chance to make our own spring rolls at a local home. The bingo was fun, and the boat ride at the end a lovely way to finish. Our tour guide spoke very good English and was funny and engaging with lots of insights about Vietnamese life.
We had the pleasure of having Bao Hoa, Anh Hong, and Tam Thanh accompany us on our tour. The food selection was great - was a good crash course on all the must have dishes in Hoi An. The girls were so sweet and really informative. It was also really fun zipping around old town on their motorbikes. Highly recommended!
