This is your chance to get behind the well-trodden tourist routes and experience ‘real Vietnam’. Normally unseen by visitors to Hoi An, few get chance to really experience beautiful Hoi An as locals see it, with a local Hoianian guide by their side. Today we focus on how our people go about their daily lives – its a 6:30am start as Vietnamese are early risers, but here’s a genuine glimpse into ‘local’ Hoi An and our rural families in the surrounding countryside and paddy fields. This is strictly a Private Tour, so you are guaranteed the only guests booked.

I arranged a private tour for 8 family members with Man Nguyen tours. It was easy to communicate with Man Nguyen and setup our private itinerary even when living in the US. Our tour guide, Thich, met us at the airport, whisked is into a luxury bus/van and we took off for our first stop. Over 2 days, Thich did everything he could to take care of me and my family and ensure we had the best time in these wonderful cities. Thich was knowledgeable, patient and always kind. This tour was by far our favorite and it’s because of Man Nguyen tours!

Great tour. Took us to the real local spots. We hit the major attractions and ate like a local. Transport was comfortable and safe. Our driver was top notch. Tuan, our guide, was really impressive. His knowledge was outstanding and he gave us the information we needed. Changed the tour to meet our specific needs. Had great fun bike riding through Hoi An.

Beautiful country and people are fantastic. Could not ask for more.

The authentic one-day private tour in Hoi An was definitely the highlight of our six-day trip in Vietnam. Our guide Tuan, who is from Hoi An and speaks perfect English, is very knowledgable and introduced to us the history and culture of the city and Vietnam. His passion for the job made the well-paced tour even more enjoyable. We travelled by private car between Da Nang and Hoi An and by private boat to the islands in Hoi An. We had a taste of the lives of the friendly locals (pottery, mat weaving, rice paper/noodle making, organic farming, etc) and ate like a local too. Having joined two other group tours during our trip, we must say the quality of this private tour is unbeatable, and we will join the company’s private tours when we visit this part of the country again! 👍🏻

We had an absolutely wonderful tour with Thich who was very knowledgeable and responsible, well taking care each of us. We enjoyed the historic tours, especially Bana Hills - what a stunning mountain. Even though the weather is so hot he and the driver would make sure we always have water and cool wipes after every outdoor excursion. Tour was being well arranged and we enjoyed the local Vietnamese food with very reasonable price. Restaurant and cafe been pre-arranged to avoid long waiting times. Extremely flexible and reliable tour. We highly recommend Man and his team to everyone

Was recommended to contact Man Ngyuen for Danang Tour. I managed to get in touch with Man to work out a customized tour for my husband who had a one day window period on his conference trip. Man was most helpful and customized a personal tour plan for my husband. It was a most enjoyable trip as Man Ngyuen was very affable and knowledgeable and it was a very fulfilling one day spent touring Bana Hills, Golden Bridge and Ling Uni Pagoda. Thank you very much Man Ngyuen.

We coordinated our tours through Man, who was a top notch professional through the whole experience. We were met at the airport and had back to back tours - Da Nang one day and Hoi An the next. Our guide was Tuan who was knowledgeable, fun, and who made our experience enjoyable and one we will always remember. We can’t thank him enough for his positive energy while showing us the sites. We highly recommend this tour company!!! If we ever have the pleasure of visiting this area again, we will definitely use this agency!

Man was really helpful even though i queried about my plan in da nang 2 days before my trip. He was very quick in response and help to accommodate our need. We had the best tour guide - LOTUS. She is very attentive and energetic throughout the tour. She's always being helpful and made the whole experience a blast. Also, she speaks fluent English and gives a really in-depth explanation about the cultural and history.

Totally recommend them for a tour in da nang.

I coordinated the tour through Man who communicated everything flawlessly and was even able to customize the itinerary so I could see Golden Bridge. I was met at the port by Thich and his driver and everything was first class. Thich’s English is excellent, he knows the city and had a very genuine interest in sharing the sites; he made the trip that much more enjoyable. If looking for a private /semi private tour of Hoi an and/or Da Nang I would very highly recommend!!!

We booked a full day tour to Hue from Hoi An directly with Man. Man’s communication was excellent throughout with clear emails leading up to the tour, a text to confirm the arrangements on the day before and even a phone call at the end of the day to make sure everything had gone smoothly. First class.

Our guide for the day was Tuan who was excellent. This is quite a tough tour for a guide as there is quite a lot of driving involved but Tuan gave us his full attention throughout the day. His English is excellent and he was both informative and engaging throughout.

The tour took us through the Hai Van Pass with a view of Lang Co Beach. Lunch was at a typical Vietnamese restaurant where we got to try Bun Bo Hue. We then went into the Imperial Citadel and Forbidden City followed by some iced coffee at a local coffee shop. From there we went to the Thien Mu Pagoda followed by a visit to Khai Dinh Tomb one of the most beautiful royal tombs in Hue.

The return journey was via the tunnel to Danang with a meal at Bep Hen – another excellent local restaurant. This was a very long day - 8.30 am to past 9.00 pm by the time we got back to Hoi An but a great experience.

Tuan even serenaded us in the car – watch out for him on Vietnam’s X Factor one day!
