What people are saying about Da Nang

You need yo take these tours! I can't stress enough how great this service was. My husband and I were in Da Nang for a couple of days during Tet, and they were so kind to take us on a tour to Marble Mountains, The Lady Buda and An Phu Cave. Communication was great from the very start, we could arrange everything online and by a phone call. Our guides were so nice and experienced people, they picked us up at our hotel early in the morning and took us on their bikes, it was so fun. We stopped on the road to take some pictures while they were explaining us about the places we would visit, then they took us to many hidden little paths so we could reach points with gorgeous views, and God they are fit people, the tour demands some energy from your body since you'll be walking and doing some climbing as well, but it's all worth it, you get to see incredible sculptures in dramatic caves, impressive landscapes... while learning a lot about a fascinating culture. Highly recommend this tour!

Picked us up at our hotel and dropped us off in Hoi An whee we met our chef and tour guide. Had sometime to shop through the local market (and we were able to buy a few things too). The boat ride and bamboo boat were such a fun little treat. Our tour guide was so friendly and spoke amazing English! And the food, WOW. Delicious. We made apron rolls, beef pho, Chicken curry and and papaya salad.:: we even got the recipes to try to make at home. A wonderful way to spend half the day in hoi an and enjoy some culture!

The tour takes to meet two of the most fascinating places in the city. My Son sanctuary with all of the history of the place back on previous centuries and the Marble Mountains with their pagodas, caves and amazing views. My tour guide was Nhung who was a great guide, she was always sharing details and comments on the places that we were visiting and make sure I was comfortable and enjoying the trip. It was a great tour!
