Awesome tour and guide!
Although this was to be a small group tour, we had it only for my and my partner. A private tour in the end.

Our guide VAN HO was very knowledgeable and kind. In the day of the tour, I was feeling miserable with a big flue. Van Ho took the time, slower down the pace and delivered a fantastic journey in Hue. We got everything that was promised and even a strategic stop and a pharmacy! LOL

She was worried and caring about us all the times, plus kept pushing me to find the strength to visit all venues and kept me interested in everything.

So, tour was superb and my special thanks to our driver and mainly to VAN HO who was a fantastic company and guide - and photographer as well. -

Boat accommodation, meal, and crew was superb! So I do recommend this tour and would love to go back for a longer stay a 2-night cruise maybe.
Kindly yours,
Gustavo Mauro.

I ended up doing a private tour, which was just perfect!! My guide was amazing, she even bought me pear-apple so I could try.
I spent the day asking questions and learning so much about Hue, the Vietnamese history and culture. I totally recommand that tour.

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.

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. .
