The UNESCO-listed monuments of Hue include a number of ancient royal tombs and temples dotted around the outskirts of the city. On this tour, visit some of the most important sites including the tombs of Minh Mang, Khai Dinh, and Tu Duc, and the magnificent Thien Mu Pagoda. With a private driver and vehicle, you can travel at your own pace and spend longer at the sites that interest you most.
