          Excellent airport transfer
          Great communication. Driver was there when we arrived. Accommodated our flight switch. Couldn’t ask for anything more.

          Vietnam Disney world
          What an amazing place it's like vietnam,s version of Disney world. The place feels magical. Bestvto go early as it gets very busy by late morning. We got a grab taxi there and back. Plenty to do and most things are free. You can even get a guide to explain the history and why it is called Ba an hills.

          Not recommended
          Not recommended as you can purchase the ticket yourself on the Ba Na Hills website for a much cheaper price. This trip does not offer anything apart from the cable car ticket like other trips usually do (transport, guide, lunch, etc.).

          Fantastic half-day activity with family
          Absolutely fantastic day despite raining weather. Our guide, Emily, was an absolute treasure and took extra time to guide us and tell us about the sites. She was extremely friendly and well informed, and we really appreciate the thought she put into our itinerary for the day to help avoid the crowds. Well worth a morning's exploration and would highly recommend.

          Only worth going for the views…which weren’t there
          If it is raining and cloudy I wouldn’t bother going. We couldn’t see the views at all because of the mist and a few of the attractions that we were looking forward to, like the Alpine Coaster, were closed which we were not informed about until we got there and paid for our ticket. The golden bridge is also much shorter than it is made to look in photos and without the views behind it there isn’t much to see. We tried to focus on the indoor attractions like the 4D experience but this was one of the worst 4D experiences I’d seen - it was poor quality images and the screen even glitched at one point to show the IP number which took us out of the experience even more.

          Ba Na Hill
          Second time to Ba Na Hills and still didn't have enough time. Maybe I should stay up there overnight. Heaps to do and see. The luge is definitely worth a try.

          Amazing tour with an amazing guide!
          We had an half day tour at My Son. Pick up service at our hotel was excellent. Our amazing tour guide Viet gave us a fantastic tour and gave us intresting facts, not only about the Cham people and culture/history/religions, but also about Vietnam. Last but not least we also got the opportunity to watch the Cham-show as a perfect ending of the tour. We had an amazing time on this tour and we would gladly recomend this!!

          Must visit place!
          Great day! The cable car experience was out of this world. Do not miss the rollercoaster ride, it was good but could have been for a little longer. Overall it was a good experience.

          My Son well worth it
          My Son is we’ll worth visiting. A very old site that has thankfully been preserved. The tour went well with our guide and driver arriving on time. Plenty of useful information from our guide throughout the day. My son is well set up and not overly touristy buggies take you from the entrance to the site 2ks and obviously return. From there you can please yourself as to where you go. Having a guide helps explain some things on site Signage is a bit limited

          Great time in Da Nang
          Mot (Tom) waited patiently for us to finish our (late) breakfast at the hotel which made us feel less stressed about the situation. Because there were no other people who signed up for the group tour, we had him all to ourselves! He was a wealth of local knowledge and having him as a tour guide definitely made our visit to the Marble Mountain and Lady Buddha much more personal. I highly recommend asking for Tom as your tour guide!

          Just a great day!
          Had a great time! No way would my husband and I gotten this all done in one day on our own lol. Because we would have lost motivation and trying to arrange the day, route, transportation can be a lot if you don’t have your own scooter. It is a lot to cover in one day so be ready to walk and climb up and down some stairs. Our tour guide was awesome! Local guy and since it was just us two we really got to know him. Lunch was great. Loved it. I would recommend this if you want to cover lots of things in one day. We live in Vietnam now and go to Da Nang frequently so this helped us gain familiarity with the area.

          Hoi An Express Travel: Reliable
          Tour operator was flexible enough to pick us up from another hotel despite us being outside Danang city earlier. Our tour guide Vinny spoke excellent English which made the tour much more enjoyable. The trip to the Sundial allowed us to have a bird eye’s view of Danang City and would have been more suited for a family with young children where all the rides at the amusement centre was part of the ticket price. We did enjoy a walk around the amusement park before heading of for dinner which was at a local restaurant. The river cruise followed where we boarded a yatch; best part of the yatch was the fact it had a bar. Drinks were the usual ‘tourist’ priced drink but, nothing beats having your favorite poison whilst enjoying the scenic ride up and down the Han River. Tip: Dress for comfort.

        My friend and I greatly enjoyed this tour. We had Sue as our guide. She was extremely knowledgable about the history of the area, site and Vietnam more broadly.

        The driver and car were also excellent and made for a comfortable ride.

        We took many tours in Vietnam but this was the best - understanding the story behind the Vietnamese royal family are really a must to appreciate the nation's rich history.

        Very enjoyable and interesting one day trip from Da Nang to Hué incorporating many of the main sights. Our guide Thu was very professional and informative giving us lots of information about Vietnam and the area as we travelled the route from Da Nang via the Hoi Van pass to Hué and back through the tunnel. The Vietnamese lunch was delicious in a lovely restaurant inside the old city walls. I would recommend this tour for any with time restrictions. It gives a very good overall impression of Hue in one day. If I had more time I would have liked to spend longer at some of the sights, perhaps stay for a night or two, but that's possibly just me, I'm interested in history.
        Our driver as excellent always there to pick us up and bring us to the next location.

        Great to return to Hue, the ancestral home of the Nguyen Dynasty. There is construction work ongoing to improve the facilities but still worth a visit and would recommend getting a tour guide which is relatively inexpensive, for the wealth of knowledge gained.

        Great tour of the palace. Long drive and hot but well worth it. Very informative guide.The pagoda and the Emporers burial site was also good. Our guide was very knowledgable and spoke very good English. A very friendly person. The meal at the restaurant was first class as was the service, we loved eating like local and the garden was beautiful. The driver was also accomodating and was prepared to stop if you wished to take photos. He also did a nice tour of Danang as an extra. Value for money and highly recommended, especially for history and amazing views. Remember it’s a very long drive although it’s worth giving a try.

        The day tour consists of visiting the palace, tomb of the emperor, temple and a couple of viewing rests along the way, very inspiring. A nice lunch was provided at a local restaurant. The guide did a great job introducing and explaining along the way.
        We were picked up from Hoi An, joined by more guests from Da Nang.
        The day was sizzling hot and the air conditioning from the bus barely made its job. The sun was scorching so a straw hat and/or umbrella is a must.
