A wonderful tour that shows you everything you need know the history of the My Son sanctuary and Hoi An. Our tour guide was very friendly, we learned a lot not only about the sights but also the life of the local people and how it's still being affected by the recent history of the country. My Son is beautiful, impressive and the tour was timed so we could watch a charming local music & dance performance. In Hoi An, we visited several sites with great historical importance. It was very enjoyable thanks to interesting stories, information told by our guide. Much recommended!

Highly recommend this tour. Our guide Bahn was very knowledgeable and his command of English was very good. He explained us history background of all sites and patiently answered all the questions. Our trip had only 4 people so it felt like we are on a private tour. The trip was wonderful from start to finish and it also included lunch at the local place. We were served trafitional delicious ‚my quang’.

We went to 2 Ling Ung Pagodas and visited the Am Phu Cave. The tour guide tried to be neutral when explaining the history of Vietnam war to us. Really enjoyed the tour:)
