Riding on the bikes was so freeing and our guide Gi was so patient, kind and knowledgeable. The food cooked by... More

Following our cruise with Indochina Junk we have booked a 1 night stay in Yen Duc village. And I am so glad we did! The village was beautiful and very peaceful. Thuy, our guide, was very kind and cared so much for our wellbeing. When my husband was sneezing she collected some herbs, boiled them and gave as medicine. And... More

We are a family of four--two lawyers from Oakland CA traveling with two teenagers age 12 and 14--just finishing up a 16 day trip on Vietnam. We've spent time in Hanoi and Saigon and Sapa and Danang, but our 24 hours in a homestay in Yen Duc was the true highlight of the vacation. Do not come to Yen Duc... More

Yen Duc was one of the highlights of our time in Vietnam. We spent two days and one night with our guide Thuy and loved every minute of it! We stayed in the Viet House which was beautiful, luxurious and built to mimic the traditional Vietnamese house structure. The chefs at the Viet House create delicious multi-course meals for breakfast,... More

Our stay at Yen Duc Village was a highlight of our vacation. They were very accommodating with our late red-eye flight departure schedule and allowed us to stay another full day without the sleepover for a very fair cost and organized transport to the airport. Our tour guide, Thuy was amazing and genuinely made us feel like part of the... More

Our visit was actually in April 2015 but TripAdvisor doesn't give me the option of going that far back. This is a long overdue review, but two year's later, we still reflect on our experience. We booked our homestay based on the great ratings on TripAdvisor. It wasn't what we expected but it turned out to be so much more!... More

Thank you so much to our wonderful guide Gi and the rest of the team at Yen Duc village tour. The accommodation, food, local activities and hospitality were perfect. We loved cycling around the village, catching fish, de-husking rice, making brooms, visiting a local house, learning to make green papaya salad, the water puppet show and visiting the local markets....
