We did a private tour of the Ancient City in Hoi An with Thanh. It was a great experience, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Thanh was very knowledgeable about the history of the area. He was also very patient with our toddler.

We initially wanted to do a tour with our resort as they are very reputable. However they didn't have exactly what I wanted. We decided instead to go with Local Buddy Tours We are SO HAPPY WE DID 1. Marble mountain 2. Monkey Mountain 3. Lady Buddha 4. Eating by the river bank Ben,our guide, picked us at our resort. I was thrilled to learn intricate historical details about Marble Mountain. Which by the way hands down best cave Ive everin more than 25 countries visited. My husband said the same. Ben went above and beyond. He trecked cold water for us on his back pack while climbing those 107+ steps up Marble mountain hills. He then took pictures of us with his phone ( the man has best camera panorama tricks ever). These were emailed promptly. After MM we continued to Monkey Mountain. We saw few adorable monkeys while enjoying awesome panoramas on our way. When people say go to Vietnam, the food, geography and its people are striking they meant it.
