Highly recommend this tour. Our guide Bahn was very knowledgeable and his command of English was very good. He explained us history background of all sites and patiently answered all the questions. Our trip had only 4 people so it felt like we are on a private tour. The trip was wonderful from start to finish and it also included lunch at the local place. We were served trafitional delicious ‚my quang’.

We were lucky to have a friendly, knowledgeable and attentive tour guide who gave us an excellent overview of the past and the present of the attractions in and around Hue. The tour is well-assembled, it collects impressive sights and keeps being interesting the whole day. Wonderful experience!

Loc was the best guide ever. He knew everything about the country and its history. He could answer every single question and his English was so good. The temples were stunning and so beautiful to see. I absolutely loved it! The lunch was excellent as well.

We went to 2 Ling Ung Pagodas and visited the Am Phu Cave. The tour guide tried to be neutral when explaining the history of Vietnam war to us. Really enjoyed the tour:)

It was a great day to visit the temples and the caves; a must do when visiting Da Nang
