What people are saying about Hue, Vietnam

Bring an empty stomach! We had such a wonderful experience with Minh and Oan- Our guides . They are like best friends that are showing you the best local spots in the city for a true experience of Hue and Vietnam. We loved their company and the food . We had an amazing time and experience. Oan and Minh took care of us every step of the way- so caring and thoughtful. We learned a lot about the culture and got some great tips on food and our further destinations trips. I would totally do the tour again just to spend time with such nice people.

Was a very nice trip to Hoi An! Got to experience the local food and culture in the Ancient Town. The tour gave us a lot of freedom to wander the night markets and ride a boat. We also got to see the Marble Mountains and learnt alot. Despite the weather being gloomy, it was perfect for this tour. Props to our guide Tim who was very informative! Did wish the tour was a bit organised because we were late to start, but overall would recommend!

This was a real highlight of our time in Vietnam. We are vegetarians so our guides adapted the tour and took us to 5 fantastic local veggie restaurants, real hidden gems we would never have discovered ourselves. The guides (3 local students) were so friendly and fun. It was a brilliant evening learning about food and culture.

My driver was great, very friendly and personable. We joined another group since I was solo and met very nice people.

We loved the tour. It was a little bit crowded in Hoi An, but totally worth it.
