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!

After a bit of confusion about the booking at the start everything went well. Sherlock my guide was friendly and knowledgeable and could answer any questions I had along the way. The bike I had was good and handles well even the few times it rained. All up it was a good day.

Very interesting tour, I was alone with Thi (tour guide) and a very experienced driver! It was a great day, I learned a lot about the country and its people! Should you have seen!

The tour is highly recommended. A very nice selection of Vietnamese dishes that you would not try, very nice guide, which had a lot of information and stories to tell.

beautiful landscape, great photo stops and nice guides
