Great tour, high recommended. Both guide and driver were very polite and friendly. Everything very well explained, professional and knowledgeable. This is a very long tour, for us it was about 10 hours tour. Driver and guide picked us on the hotel and we went straight to King's Tomb, after that the Imperial Citadel, a light Pho Vietnamese soup Lunch and return to Marble Mountain at the end of the day.
This day trip was excellent. Our driver picked us up straight from our hotel and took us to see the marble caves which he gave a brief tour. We then made our way towards Hue and our driver did a great job handling the road, traffic and driving in Vietnam is insane, but we never felt unsafe with our driver. The tour through Hue and along the perfume river was very nice, I almost wished that this tour was longer. I did not expect Hue to be so big. Our tour guide took us to places in Hue that I feel not many people get to see. The only thing that could have been better was the lunch, the restaurant we stopped at was dirty and the food was subpar from what we had eaten and tried elsewhere. But we would highly recommend this tour if you're staying in Da Nang.
The tour was perfect and the tour guide Ming was professional and knowledgeable! The tour covers a lot in Hue and that we learn so much about the Viet history. Also visiting the Marble Hill in Da Nang, another exciting journey as we literally climbed up to the mountain top! Highly recommend but be prepared that the trip requires some level of energy and strength. AMAZING TOUR!
On this private tour I unfortunately fell ill a couple of hours in from some dodgy breakfast unrelated. David Huu the guide was extremely helpfull, even brought me medication and dropped me at a hotel for recovery for a few hours and my partner continued the tour. Davids knowledge on the history of Vietnam is outstanding. He told us about the history of every site we visited, answered all our questions and even gave us a ride to Hoi an afterwards for a small price. David and his driver were super friendly, his english is very good and gave us lots of advice and recommendations for our future Vietnam travels. Would highly recommend.
Good tour, worth the time. Guide could have been a lot more informative.
It was a great trip. Driver and guide were friendly and helpful. We would consider the same team again
This was a very long day and while we learned a great deal it was quite tedious and tiring. Our driver arrived on time but our guide was 15 minutes late. The guide was quite young and spent a lot of time grooming his hair. He looked like he had a hangover when he arrived but blamed his tardiness on needing to get petrol for his motor bike. The guide got better as the day progressed and was quite friendly and looked after my travelling partner who was an elderly gentleman. Unfortunately his English was only average but he insisted on explaining the historical significance of every place that we visited in minute detail. He was passionate about his culture but it was hard work trying to work out what he was saying and we would often have to stand in the heat while he went on about some piece of history. He could not read body language or take the hint about when we had heard enough and wanted to move on.
It was a long drive to Hue and I would only recommend it if you really wanted to find out about the imperial history of Vietnam. The only touring of Danang was a trio to Marble Mountain and a drive through the city. I wish our guide had explained the history during the long periods of driving and ten we could have had more of a look at the attractions.
The Hue tour was ok, we skipped the Tomb of the 12th King because its too hot. The agency doesnt seem to know we have a Danang tour as well, and #39;til we reminded him. We went to the caves, the tour guide mentioned the marble mountain is a tedious in the heat, so they took us to the see the Lady Buddha.
