Quit punctual & makes perfect sense & cost-benefit. For reasonable addition to ordinary bus ticket, they take you to local highlights you normally wouldn't see. Highly recommended it! Pleasent guide, English ok

Interesting itinerary

Sufficient stops to see the village life (market, rice fields, old bridge), the Col de Haï Van. Too bad the deposit is not made in front of the hotel in Da Nang but in front of the Cham Museum.

Great tour, good way to get to Da Nang and see hai van pass. tour guide very friendly
