We were so glad we took the chance and booked this tour! We wanted a day trip from Hanoi and Rosanta Trvael recommended this trip. We didn't really know what to expect but the day started with a 1.5 hour drive to the village followed by some quality time with a water buffalo, some ploughing in the rice paddy, and planting rice. We got nice and dirty but it was great fun!
After an amazing lunch our tour guide took us for a bike ride around the village to temples and to the rice fields. She was fabulous! Explained the difference between the types of rice and how they farm it.
This was seriously a once in a lifetime experience and I feel like I learnt so much about Vietnam and about the farm life in the country. Highly recommend!
