Our tour was a great experience.We had a hands on tour with a very knowledgeble guide. I tried some of the many aspects of silkworm farming such as weaving and pulling the silk thread from the cocoon. We learnt a great deal whilst also having fun.This was followed by a nice lunch.I could thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone!

Half-day SILK CLOTH PRODUCING PROCESS DISCOVERY TOUR from HOI AN
We were picked up from the hotel, given a welcome drink of mulberry juice and then we met our tour guide. The tour guide Thu was so friendly and informative. We were able to feed the silk worms, use the looms and see what is entailed in the silk industry. Originally my husband thought the tour would just be a sales tour however we both found it to be one of the best tours we've done in Vietnam. Very insightful and we would highly recommend. There is an option at the end of the tour to look around the shop but there is no obligation to buy if you don't wish to. After the tour, we were given a small meal and transported back to our hotel. Thu, our guide was fantastic at her job and made our day special.

Half-day SILK CLOTH PRODUCING PROCESS DISCOVERY TOUR from HOI AN
I started with a totally wrong expectation that the tour might be primarily a sales opportunity for Hoi An Silk Village products. We were picked up on time and taken to the Village and introduced to our pleasant, well spoken and very knowledgeable guide Lyn. For the next three hours we were taken through all of the in depth details that it takes to grow the mulberry leaves, feed the worms, harvest the silk from the cocoons, spin the thread and weave an actual silk cloth. Lyn and the ladies that operate the village tour made afternoon very interactive, and hands on so you came away with a good knowledge of just how interesting and complicated the silk cloth making process really is and just how many benefits there are to true silk clothing. At the end of the tour there was a no pressure opportunity to purchase silk and silk cotton blend items before being served an very delicious meal in the facility restaurant. In summary a very enjoyable afternoon that far exceeded my expectations.

Half-day SILK CLOTH PRODUCING PROCESS DISCOVERY TOUR from HOI AN
I really enjoyed this tour. As there were only four people on this tour we weren't rushed at all. Our guide was very informative and we saw exactly how the silk was processed. We got to feed the silkworms, spin the silk from the cocoon, spin the bobbin for the shuttle and also have a go on the weaving looms. My husband although reluctant to do this tour thinking it was for women! enjoyed it and learnt how much work goes into making fabric. The lunch after was good. Spring Rolls with shrimp, fried tofu, pork noodle soup and watermelon to finish. Just be aware that saying you can't eat shellfish doesn't mean that there won't be any. Not too much of an issue with me as I am not allergic/anaphylactic, it just doesn't agree with me if I eat it. Definitely recommend this tour. Great value for money.

Half-day SILK CLOTH PRODUCING PROCESS DISCOVERY TOUR from HOI AN
Tour guide and tour were very interesting. Punctual pick up and hotel return. It was only the 2 of us and the entire compound was empty.... Nice to see charts with the life cycle of silk worms and moths. Great fun to help feed the worms, 'make' silk thread from cocoons caterpillars were available for eating! and then try our hand at weaving!! The silk store had magnificent items for sale at reasonable prices. The 4 course lunch afterwards was EXCELLENT. The trip was well worth the time and money.
