Overall a great experience and exactly as advertised. Tour company left message with hotel regarding my pick up time. Guide was on time, friendly and entertaining to keep my elderly father motivated while walking through all the sights. Expect a bit of walking. The vegetarian lunch at a monastery not open to public was quite special at the quiet and serene setting.
If you want to learn Vietnams history - do this tour. We were staying at the La Residence, OMG best hotel eva. This tour is a long and hot one, so take water. I personally loved this tour as it explained everything that I had done in high school about this gorgeous country. Did you know Asian Elephants are smaller then African's? Their royal family and culture, between Chinese and them. Hope you have a great tour guide like we did. Sorry can't remember her name, but extremely knowledgable.
Hue is a haunted city with a dark and tragic past. Our guide, Von Ho, tempered this awareness with terrific wit and a wry charm. It was an absolute pleasure sharing in her pride of Hue and its people while touring the sites she shared. Highly recommended.
Van Ho is an amazing guide. She explained both the past and present political and social views of the local community. Each stop was explained before we arrived and it's historical significance. We looked at each site and could fully grasp what we were looking at and why. Lunch was amazing. Each dish was explained to us, how it was made and how to eat it. We ended the day feeling we had spent the day with a friend and had an understanding of the history and culture of Hue. Van allowed us to explore each site with her at our own pace. There was no rush. An excellent guide makes for an excellent tour.
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.
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.
Excellent guide and very good choice of locations. I recommend if you only have a day in Hue.
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. .
We took this tour on 16/12/17 and had a very pleasant time- considering the weather! The lady guide was prompt and very polite, and even searched around for umbrellas when we forgot to take ours. The tour helped us understand historical Hue very well. It would have been better though, if we could have spent more time in the Imperial city as there were parts of the city we didn't visit. The food served was delicious. Would definitely recommend this tour to everyone!
The Tour was a very comprehensive coverage of Hue and its history.
The guide Ms Van was very enthusiastic. She even called up the hotel the day before leaving a message for the pickup the next day.
She was very detailed in her presentation and spoke very good english.
I would recommend this tour and this guide.
An excellent day tour taking in many of the historic sites in and around Hue. The tour included a traditional Vietnamese lunch which was delicious. The tour guide was very informative and was happy to travel at our pace. The cruise on the Perfume river was not quite as expected as the boat was fairly basic with a very loud Diesel engine, but fun nonetheless.
A most interesting experience on the tour with a good range of interests and sights. The guide was very well organised with a good knowledge of the history of the various places.
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.
