What people are saying about Da Nang (Municipality)

Awesome experience if your looking for a shorter timed day trip. Only 5 hours but you see a ton. Pickup and drop off was super easy and the drives are quick from Da Nang. No negatives but if you don’t like walking up stairs it may not be for you. Lots of steps up to the top of marble mountain but you can also climb through caves to get to the top. That was personally the best part for us. Really enjoyed it and the hosts are great!

Michael is the bestest tour guide you will ever meet. He goes above and beyond for his clients and is very knowledgeable of historical features of each spot. Highly recommend them!

Bach, our guide was really informative and knowledgeable. whilst being friendly and interesting.

The lady Buddha and the Am Phu Cave is something that you must see if you are in Da Nang.

Marble mountains are so incredible!! And the lunch was excellent.
