We had booked a tour through our hotel to visit Marble Mountain during our 6 night stay in Hoi An. Mr Turtle arrived right on time to pick us up in the morning and was really friendly and seemed genuinely interested in getting to know each of us on our small tour group. His English is outstanding and he knows so much about the area, and also made the tour very entertaining!
We enjoyed the Marble mountain tour with Mr Turtle so much that we booked a Da Nang city tour with him for the following day which was equally good - he took us round several sights and then to some of his favourite restaurants so we could try the local delicacies (which were all delicious!).
Both tours were very good value for money and it was great having only a small group size as it made the tour much more personal. I just wish we had known about Mr Turtle at the start of our trip so we could have booked more tours with him!

Mr turtle was a charismatic, welcoming and informative host! His English was outstanding and useful information was portrayed easily to the group in a fun way. I would highly recommend simply Vietnam travel to anyone in the Hoi An area. It was a pleasure to have Mr Turtle as my tour guide and I think he will be a hard act to follow.

We were lucky to hear about Mr. Turtle through a friend that we met while travelling in Vietnam. Mr. Turtle took us on an afternoon tour to the My Son ruins and it was amazing. We had a very small group and because we went in the afternoon, we had the ruins almost to ourselves. Mr. Turtle was very knowledgeable, helpful and kind (even stopping for snacks on the way to the ruins). He shared a lot of information about the ruins, history and culture that made us appreciate the tour even more. We felt that Mr. Turtle's prices were very reasonable and we were happy to enjoy the luxury of a small group tour. We would highly recommend Mr. Turtle for tours while in Vietnam!!

We didn't know what to expect when we went to Marble Mountain with Mr Turtle, but the temples and caves, and Turtle turned out to be a wonderful surprise! As a guide Mr Turtle is informative, helpful, careful and above all fun. His irrepressible sense of humour and attempts at making ancient Vietnamese history interesting via Q & A, with hints to help us along provided, were hilarious. And we did learn a great deal. I strongly recommend Simply Vietnam Tours - good fun in the company of a delightful guide.

Our family enjoyed our tour! Turtle was very knowledgeable and very engaging so it was educational yet fun. We would not have got as much out of our trip to marble mountain if we had not made time to do this. Glad we did this tour, as it was one of the highlights of our trip...
