          A must do for young and old
          This is a wonderful experience to sail in a round basket made of coconut leaf sheath. Such a durable and foolproof mode of transport that an entire community business runs on several hundreds of these. The venue is a quaint and beautiful submerged coconut grove with several narrow water ways intertwined. Each boat is 2 seater and the rowed by excellent handlers. They would not just sail you from one place to another, they would also keep you entertained by singing and maneuvering skillfully. Thete are specially skilled people who will entertain you with additional amusing tricks at 100k VND. Else the cost per boat is 300 vnd for a ride of upto 45 mins. There are arrangements of live bands right in the river on floating baskets. This is an absolute fun activity for young and old.

          Great Bana Hills Experience
          This whole experience is a must to everyone visiting Da Nang. As they say: A visit to Da Nang is not complete without having to visit Bana Hills. The tour guide was very accommodating and nice but had to admit that speaking english for him was a handicap. It was hard to understand what he was saying but overall did a very nice job being a tour guide. He thought of making ways and means on how we can maximize out time amidst the heavy downpour of rain and thick fogg surrounding the entire Bana Hills. The place is spectacular --- and would be visiting again during spring (where rain and fogg is out of the way). I would highly recommend this tour to almost everyone.

          Spectacular but people a lot
          There were so many people so it's little hard time. You'd better go when not peak. Anyway they have good views and fantastic experiences. Specially I was surprised about under ground facilities. And You'd better go other restaurant if you go to the buffet through travel package. ㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅁㅇㅇㅇㅇㅁ ㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇ

          Vietnam Disney
          The tour was great, our guide spoke English very well. The transport van was nice, clean and cool. The tour took you to Sun World which is kind of like Vietnam Disney- everything is made as a tourist attraction, the only original French part from the 1900s is the wine cellar. All very cool and fun to see- the gardens are beautiful. Definitely a lot of people there, but can time it to still get some good pictures. Only con would be the lunch...mostly because of the coronavirus outbreak, a buffet is the last place you want to eat, plus it wasnt very good.

          Absolutely awful
          The worst experience we’ve had in Vietnam. We fell asleep so I’m not even sure if we stopped at either of the places. Then when we stopped for the lunch he said we would be there for a little while but he got our bags out of the back and told us goodbye. Left us the city with no idea where we were. Tried calling and emailing the company with no response. Find an alternate option.

          Group & family trip at Bana hill
          It was a wonderful place, the Golden Bridge at Bana Hill from Danang City in Vietnam. Tourist guide little slow in speaking English but good to help the tourists. And the launch buffet was awesome. Place was nice for cool pictures. The minibus was also nice air conditioning.

          Great Service
          I took 2 tours with Da Nang Online Travel, to Ba Na Hills and Hoi An with a stop at a riverside village. The experience throughout was great. Informative, fun and I got to see more than I would have imagined. My guide was very professional and looked after me well, even having a raincoat for me when the need arose. Will definitely use their service again.

          Excellent day in Da Nang/Ba Na Hills
          We had a Excellent Day with Mr. David our tour guide in Ba Na Hills and Sun World. Mr. David was extremely informative, kind, patient, and fun. He allowed us to go at our own pace on this tour. He provided us with the great historical information. The Golden Hand Bridge was an awesome experience. I highly recommend taking this tour with Mr. David.

          David is a great guide
          David, our guide, is very knowledgeable. We did 3 tours in total with them. The first one was to Hoi Van pass with a stop at an oyster farm and Lang Co beach and this was lovely. The second was a group tour to Bana hills and this was quite fun with a theme park accessible by cable cars. The scenery is gorgeous and it was great to be in the cool at around 1400 metres. The lady to was to Cham Island for snorkeling. Don't expect great snorkeling because of the visibility and bring your own mask and tubs if possible. However the beach was quite nice and the lunch at a local restaurant was a good experience.

          See the country
          Driver was polite and on time. The car was modern and well maintained. Driving was excellent and felt very comfortable. The only suggestion would be cold water and cold refresher towels available.
