DMZ TOUR FROM HUE - Deluxe private tour fullday

DMZ TOUR FROM HUE - Deluxe private tour fullday

Vietnam's Demilitarized Zone, or DMZ, is the area around the former border between North and South Vietnam. Historically it was a narrow band of terrain extending from the Laos border to the coast, five kilometres on either side of the Ben Hai River, roughly on the 17th parallel north of latitude. This deluxe full-day private tour will bring you to the area as well as the history of the Vietnam war. It’s a long day trip but regular stops at interesting places make it very manageable in a private car and tourguide.

          one day with Shang
          Shang is knowledgeable and engage to his work as guide, he shared to us the substantial knowledge of historical information about vietnam culture in all areas from ancient to current. Shang relayed the story with body language which is easier for the tourist to understand. He is doing great as a person not only connected to his job but also to the clients as well.

          A nourishing soulful tour
          The day was spent visiting Tu Hieu Pagoda where Thich Nhat Han began his monkhood and later returned after his exile in France to live out the remainder of his life, there was also a visit to the adjoining abby. Lunch was prepared by the grand-daughter of one of the Chef's of the Imperial Palace and it was exquisite. We visited Thien Mu Pagoda and Bao Quoc Temple, the oldest in Hue where sits 4 Venerable Monks. My guide was kind, knowledgeable and everything was well planned. This tour soothed my soul and deepened my appreciation for Buddhism in Vietnam. Restour is a special tour company, Thank You.

          Very poor guide and service
          Guide was hopeless. No commentary or introduction of the places we visited was given to us- a group of 5 . The morning started by pick up being late because they did not check that I had already booked and paid online via Tripadvisor and I had to call at 8.10am when I was told that pick up would be at 8 am. They then quickly arranged for pick up at 8.30 am making the excuse that pick up would be between 8- 8.30 am in any event but made a comment that they did not realise I had booked and paid. So I dread to think what would have happened if I did not follow up with a phone call when they were running late. During the phone call, I remembered asking the tour operator which guide I would be getting as I wanted one who could speak English and could explain and answer questions. He said he did not know as he had several tours running simultaneously. Despite that, we went along happily . The whole purpose of signing up for such a tour were the excellent reviews Tripadvisor had on them . We could have gone to the sites ourselves but we wanted to get some local knowledge and insights of the historical sights of Hue. Alas, this was not to be. The most that the guide did was to volunteer to take our pictures. We felt like fools walking around and trying to eavesdrop into other guide's commentaries to other groups which we felt were fascinating and entertaining and secretly wished that our guide could have been more actively involved. His English was very limited and he could hardly understand our queries . Even basic questions about the history of Hue dumbfounded him and he had to resort to asking another guide for answers . Clearly, he did not do any homework for this assignment and he showed no interest in the history of the sites we were visiting. To add the final insult to injury, they had initially picked us up to join the tour but for our journey back , the driver refused to turn into the road where my hotel was situated and dropped us off on the main road , instructing us to walk in to the hotel ourselves ; this was after an extremely hot and humid weary day of walking and climbing up and down the steep steps of the tomb visit sites and was definitely not appreciated. The other members of my group ( whom I had just met on the day itself in the tour ) also agreed that this was a very poorly run tour. It would do the guide a service if the tour operators actually made a point in educating their guides in the history of Hue and the sights which they are to be guiding. The monies we paid I felt was a total rip off for this tour . Also I have learnt the hard way to be wary of excellent reviews - it really depends on the guide assigned . For me this tour was a disaster.

          The best way to learn about Hué!
          Sue was a great tour Guide explaining us a lot of the imperiaal history of Hué. The lunch in Xuan Dai restaurant was absolutely a highlight. As a tourist you would never ever have found this. This tour is a must do in Hué when you are there!

          Wonderful experience can not recommend enough
          Absolutely great tour. Managed to get so much covered in the day. I like the fact that the tour numbers are kept small. Our guide (Bé Chị apologies if I have her name wrong 27 Feb 2023) had an excellent knowledge of all of the places we visited and was helpful throughout the day. She was able to answer additional questions the group had and more general topics about vietnam (as freelance I can highly recommend her to other Vietnamese travel companies). Her English is absolutely perfect. Overall a wonderful day to see the major highlights in vietnam. Thank you

          Informative experience
          What an experience of this great Imperial city called Hue. Our tour guide, Bao was very informative and engaging and also a good photographer. Bao ensured we had a great understanding of Hue history. He took us to the citadel, the 2nd and 12th kings tomb and also to the place where incense are made. As usual, he answered our questions and he is very good with speaking English. I recommend Bao to anyone visiting Hue, you won't regret it.

          The Best Tour Company In Hue
          If there is a better tour company in Hue, I have yet to meet them or experience any travel agency that surpasses the service of Restour. I have known the owner and General Manager for a dozen years plus. His company and staff are service-oriented and know how to not only solve problems, but accommodate your special requests. He san seemingly do anything and meet your special desires whether a couple of group. My latest experience with Restour was a Vietnam veteran group of nearly 40 people, and a smaller group of board members from the organization/NGO Vets With A Mission. GM Nam can solves any visa issue, propose the best hotels and most convenient flights, and his ground transportation is terrific. He and his agency are consumer friendly, service-oriented and professional. He can set-up any tour to anywhere at anytime. Give Restour a chance. You won't be disappointed!

          Hue city tour
          The city tour was one of the best tours I’ve been on anywhere. Sue (Thanh) our warm and friendly guide was informative, helpful and we enjoyed her explanations and patience in answering our questions. The tour included the Imperial City, Tuen Mu pagoda, Tombs of the 2nd and 4th Nguyen dynasty emperors, lunch in a private garden in a local village, traditional foot bath and a visit to a traditional conical hat and incense stick maker. We all had a go at rolling an incense stick too. We also visited the colourful local market in Hue. I think the tour was good value considering how much we packed in.

          Great day tour , well worth doing
          Out of all the tours I’ve been on this year , and I’ve been on quite a few , as I’ve been travelling since February , this is one of the most enjoyable. Sue our tour guide was so sweet , and made the tour so enjoyable. We started off at one of the Pagodas, followed by the Imperial Citadel/City . Then another Pagoda , a visit to the market , then we had lunch at a Garden House , which was well out of the way , at the edge of the city. We received a warm welcome from the hosts . The food they brought out , was delicious and plentiful. And after lunch we had a herbal foot soak . In the afternoon we visited a small shop , that still produce and make incense sticks by hand . And all the group had a go at making some sticks , mine was hilarious. Then we visited a further 2 Pagodas, what a contrast they were , from each other . Would highly recommend this tour , it was very enjoyable, one of the most interesting tours I’ve been on . The guide Sue , and the driver , were a credit to the tour company.

        What a great tour. The DMZ tour was fantastic. Our tour guide, Loc went above and beyond to make it a great day. I would recommend Loc to take there as he is a Vietnam Veteran and has a large wealth of information

        Mr Loc picked us up on time with a good driver in an air-conditioned van. He acquired a step for me as I have a sore knee, which was very kind of him. Plus he assisted me in and out of the van.
        Mr Loc is very knowledgeable on each place we visited. I very much enjoyed this tour. He is passionate, a very personable and kind gentleman and I would do a tour with him again.
