For our family, traveling and food are our passions. We’re fairly seasoned — my wife has visited 44 countries, I’ve been to 38 and our 2 year old has already experienced 7! We’ve done private tours and self-guided trips, we’ve stayed on an island with no running water or electricity and 5* and 6* resorts. Food is paramount to everything we do, and we plan all of our trips around food. We are constantly in search of local, authentic cuisine and prefer to eat with and amongst locals than in a restaurant full of other tourists.
Having visited Central Vietnam on our own on a previous trip, we weren’t convinced we needed a private tour guide for a 1 week vacation in Da Nang, Hoi An and Hue. However, once we contacted Xuân Tú, her passion for her hometown and for being a tour guide was clear and we wanted to experience this destination with her as our guide.
Since we confirmed our tours with Xuân Tú less than a week before arrival, and her schedule was fully booked except a single day, we regretfully only had the pleasure of doing a single day Da Nang tour with her. However, Xuân Tú assisted with everything for our entire trip from from airport pick up to drop off, including transport and tour guides from Da Nang –> Hoi An (via Cam Kim Island) –> Hue –> Da Nang. One of Xuân Tú’s primary drivers, Mr. Tu, transported us safely from Hoi An to Hue and back to Da Nang. Although limited with his English, he’s an extremely friendly and kind man. I felt my family was 100% safe with Mr. Tu behind the wheel… and he’s very patient and loves kids!
Xuân Tú is extremely hospitable, friendly and proactive; we felt as if she was a good friend showing us around her town, not a tour guide we hired. Xuân Tú absolutely loves what she does and this is evident in all of her actions. Even though she was busy doing tours, she was quick to respond on email and whatsapp. When we were in Hoi An and Hue, she regularly checked in to ensure everything was going as planned. Xuân Tú proactively called hotels and restaurants on our behalf to make sure everything went smoothly. She’s a fellow foodie, and we loved all the local spots she took us to in Da Nang and recommended while we were in Hoi An and Hue! We genuinely felt this was the best tour we’ve experienced in any country we’ve visited, as it was so well organized, infused with so much heart-felt passion and combined great food and amazing company!
We will definitely be back and fully endorse Xuân Tú and her company to anyone looking for a friend to show them around Central Vietnam!
Thanks Xuân Tú for the memories and see you again soon! 🙂
