What You Can Expect

Best Hue City Sightseeing Tour with Perfume River Cruise

Perfume River in Hue

With your small-group, head to the high stone walls of UNESCO World Heritage-listed Hue Citadel, the Imperial City. Inside of the palace complex, which features hundreds of royal tombs, ornate pagodas and temples, learn about Hue’s Nguyen Emperors who ruled the former capital of Vietnam until the early 20th century.

Take a short bike ride past rice paddies and small towns in Hue’s magnificent surroundings, and arrive at a village that specializes in making incense. After lunch, the tour continues on to visit some of Hue's most impressive tombs. Admire the stunning triple-gated entrance and seven-tiered pagoda before heading to the Tiger Arena. Learn about the brutality of the arena, where duels between elephants and tigers were arranged for the emperor’s entertainment until the turn of the century.

Finally, hop aboard a boat for a relaxing afternoon cruise along the Perfume River, experiencing the enchantment of the meandering river before ending your tour and returning to your hotel in the city center.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2015

Excellent guide and very good choice of locations. I recommend if you only have a day in Hue.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2015

This tour was a great experience. The tourguide Thanh made for an enjoyable and productive use of the day. Many sights were visited and the personal knowledge of Hue by Thanh added a lot to the experience. The pickup at the hotel was on time and the pace of the day was good. The tour included the transportation, admissions to the sights, the boat ride, and lunch. With the limited time I had in Hue, it was the way to see and learn about the area.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2013

Really enjoyed this tour!. It was due to be a small group tour, but in the event there was just me which was great! My guide was Ni, who was extremely knowledgeable and our driver was Tang, they were both really personable and did an excellent job. Cruising down the Perfume River in the Dragon Boat was lovely, very relaxing and great views. Bao Quoc Pagoda was amazing, as was the Citadel, and the Forbidden Purple City. After an interesting tour around the market, we went to see Incense, and Hats being made, and then went to a nunnary, where they served us a lovely meal. Would definitely recommend this tour. .

We really enjoyed the tour was booked as a small group tour but there was just two of us. Highlights were the pagoda, tomb, a delicious lunch in a monastery and a tour with history of the citadel and imperial palace etc. friendly knowledgeable guide with great English would recommend, good value.
