We had such a wonderful couple of days around Danang, all expertly organised by Xuan Tu. We left our couple of days completely in her hands – airport pick ups and drop offs, tour suggestions and accommodation – stayed at her lovely Mum’s home stay. Our two day trips – to Hoi An and Hue – with the absolutely delightful Thuy were a blast, with Thuy finding just the right balance between explaining the sights and having fun. She got on really well with all of us – my husband and I and our young adult sons. If you are short on time, the day in Hoi An was my favourite. Hue is a long drive – between 4 and 5 hours spent in the car. On the way to Hoi An we stopped at the famous Banh Mi place and Thuy helped us order, then for dinner we ate a tiny stall in the market that I would have been too scared to try on my own, but really good food. Visiting the farms on the island was really interesting – probably the best part of the day in my opinion, but my sons loved the shopping and Thuy showed us a tailor which was able to make a shirt for one of my sons in a couple of hours. The couple of days was topped off with dinner at the home stay. Mai (Xuan Tu’s mum) used to be a chef and this meal was the best we have had in Vietnam – super fresh and tasty. So sad we didn’t have time to do a cooking class with her. The home stay was a really nice experience as we had more time to chat to Xuan Tu and her family. I thoroughly recommend this whole experience – possibly a bit more expensive but a million times more enjoyable than a big group tour and all organised with immense ease via email before I left home.
