Xuan Tu’s Team Members took us around tourist places and local places alike. The Da Nang tours with Tommy and Hoi An and Hue tours with Anthony were all fantastic. We appreciated learning about real Vietnamese Coffee and how to enjoy it. . We were given advice where better to buy things in HoiAn so we could get more reasonable prices and we could patronize less advertised shops. We were happy to hear that the fees we paid contributed to the craftsmen and the ricepaper maker whom we personally witnessed and *helped* to make rice paper. The rain was a downer, especially on our days in Hue, but Anthony joined in on our jokes, kept good spirits and let us customize the itinerary so we could buy some local produce(oil) and eat at a really good local restaurant. He was so helpful and relatable. He also gave us a lot of useful tips!… even the driver helped us find good food at the end of the day.
Our 5 day trip was great with some free time to do other exploring on our own in Hoi An. Thankfully it was easy to buy clothing to protect against the rainy December weather.
Our trip ended on a warm note, with a hearty and delicious homecooked dinner with the team and a cultural exchange of songs and singalong sans karaoke. Despite the cold, we felt a genuine warmth during our visit.
