The tour is perfectly organized, but I was not satisfied due to personal expectations, perhaps too high. That is, perhaps they are too few 4 hours à Hue (we leave at 8, we arrive at 11, we go to eat, at 12 we leave for the first site of interest, so until 16.30 when we return to Da Nang). Do say, ok I was there, Hue done. But that's not what interests me. Instead there are people for whom this tour is perfect and satisfying, especially if you have little time to devote to Hue. It also made me think "thank goodness I didn't waste a night sleeping there". The majesty of the monuments is surprising, but among all the Mausoleums that are there, why just that? I didn't understand it because Vietnamese English is really incomprehensible, even though the guide was very kind and smiling. Then pagoda and imperial palace, both beautiful. If you have to choose between Hoi An (Folklore) and Hue (history), go to Hoi An, easy even without a guide.

Too expensive for the service received

We booked this tour with the hope of knowing more about the history and culture of Hué, but we were quite disappointed by the English skills of the guide. Even though he was really trying, we had difficulties in understanding what he said. Moreover, they picked us up 30 minutes later than expected because the car broke on the way.

We booked the Tour to Hue on 7th of November. Pickup was really punctual at our hotel in DaNang. After picking up a few others we made our way to Hay Van pass. Visit was OK but cloudy weather. Then the shopping tour to the pearl town and the oil shop continued. Nice to see, but if you like to see some cultural places a waste of time. After getting to Hue we had a nice lunch and went of to the Thien-Dienh-Palace. Very nice but short visit. After that we saw the Pagoda (25min visit >> to short). Driving 10 minutes to the cytadelle of Hue we spent in total 1 hour there which is way to short (because we spent 30Minutes in Hue picking up people for the way back). The drive back was OK. Drop off at our hotel. Boa the guide was really nice but his language skills have room for improvement. Fazit: We cannot recomment that because for what you get you pay a lot. Maybe arranging w/ your hotel is cheaper.
