    We did the Fishing Life tour with David of Hanoi Eco Tour and it was definitely our favorite thing that we did on our trip! David also helped us organize our hotel in Hanoi and Ha Long Bay Tours, but by far the highlight was the fishing trip. We traveled about 45 minutes outside of Hanoi and from there met a family from the village who showed us how they catch fish in their ponds – we were even able to eat the larger fish from the second pond for lunch 🙂 The lunch was prepared at a local house and we again were more than welcome to help or just watch. The meal was amazing and was followed up by a cycling trip around the village, farms and rice paddies. Overall, it was a great cultural and learning experience. Hanoi Eco Tours provides a unique and one of a kind experience that you will not find with many other tour companies (if any!). We had a fantastic time and would recommend Hanoi Eco Tours and David to anyone who travels to Vietnam!
