I had a gentle, English-speaking guide name Thao. She is pretty good with her English and knowledge despite being so young. She also very friendly and made me feel very welcomed. I was brought to a nice lunch place called Mỳ quãng đại nam near My Son Ruins. Serves one of the best crispy pancake (throw into your soup) and Mi Quang. Awesome!

It was a good experience if you do not have the whole day to do things and you want to get out of the city and see interesting caves and temples. The guide Binh was also very knowledgeable in explaining the history of the city and temples.

Excellent value for money, guide Tam spoke great English was extremely knowledgeable and really looked after us. We saw all the sights as described and it was an amazing day out.
