We found found Xuan Tu on Tripadvisor, calling into Denang as part of a cruise we had limited time We explained what we wanted to see and do, mainly visiting Hoi Ann taking in the Marbles mountains and the Lady Buddha. and so Xuan Tu tailor made our trip,
The start of our trip was a little worrying as we could not find Xuan Tu. The guides were not allowed into the cruise port and so Xuan Tu told us she would wait outside the gate. However we did not realise that the gate was a few more minutes’ walk away. We waited by a set of traffic lights which looked like the port gates. Anyway after a quick call we realised we were at the wrong place. It was just a little walk along the road and around a bend that we saw the actual port gates and our guide. If you coming off of a cruise just be aware.
Sadly Xuan Tu had a bereavement in her family, her Grandmother, so could not escort us however she sent Tommy. Who met us with his driver in an air conditioned very comfortable vehicle with copious supplies of water during our trip. Tommy is a great guy, we had a fantastic time, he was polite but relaxed, extremely knowledgeable about his country and above all great fun ( we were 2 late 50’ couples). He is a huge asset to Xuan Tu’s team.
The trip was more than we anticipated, the boat trip and the monkey bridge, such a surprise, to visit to the two local houses which were very special, As someone else explained it helps these people survive.
Tommy took us to a super restaurant and recommended some great food and all for 11 dollars, amazing. We loved it all. I could go on and on.
We all agreed that this trip was the best of all the trips we had. Our only negative not enough time in this lovely place. We want to thank Vietnam Tours and especially Tommy for making our trip to Denang so special. We highly highly recommend Xuan Tu and Vietnam Tours.
And by the way Paddy we do not think it was expensive at all.
