Visita guiada con Ms. Nhu y Mr. Trung (conductor) excelente. Dedicamos unas 4h a visitar las 3 tumbas, una pagoda y una tiendecita local. La visita fue muy enriquecedora para conocer la historia de los diferentes emperadores de Hue y sus curiosidades. Además, intercambiamos aspectos y tradiciones culturales entre Bcn y Vietnam. Al finalizar nos recomendaron un lugar de comida típica. Sin duda, repetiríamos! Muchas gracias a ambos!

Vu was our driver. He was very helpful and informative. He suggested the 3 sights to see in the time we had. We were able to ask him many questions about the sights. We explored the sights alone but that worked well for us. He dropped us off and was always waiting for us when we finished our own exploration. I would definitively recommend Vu!!

Dung is an excellent driver and he has made the tour adapted for us wonderfully! We only had one day to see Hue and thanks to your service we were able to see everything calmly and without carrying our backpacks. Super recommended!

The tour was great We saw a lot of historical sights. Audio guides are available everywhere. Ideal for individual needs The driver spoke very good English and gave us some input

The driver speaks perfect English. Seeing the city without a driver is much more complicated and you risk wasting a lot of time. Super recommended
