I took my elderly parents (in their mid 60’s) on a customized private tour with Xuan Tu Tours for about 7 days. We did Da Nang, Hoi An & Hue.
Xuan Tu was very prompt in responding the emails with any queries and concerns I had and customized the private tour based on my requirements. She was very helpful and made the booking process very easy and smooth.
We had a few different guides throughout the tour and they were all fantastic. All of them went the extra mile and has world class hospitality. The drivers are great and the rides were very comfortable and safe as well.
We did the Evening Scooter Food Tour with Ty Na, My & Anh. It was a great experience to ride around Da Nang, trying out the many different and delicious local foods. We also visited the market and the famous bridges in Da Nang. It was beautiful, especially at night. The scooter ride was very safe and very comfortable. Special thanks to Ty Na for helping my mum negotiate prices in the market 😀
We also did the Bana Hills tour with Hoa, who was very warm and has excellent photography skills. We took the beautiful cable car ride to visit the golden hands bridge and other attractions around. I’d recommend you start the day early as it gets crazy crowded after 9am.
For the rest of our trip in Hue, Hoi An, and parts of Da Nang, our guide was Lam. He was very informative, friendly and super helpful!
In Hue, we did the Imperial City tour, the famous tombs and a country side tour which we had the chance to try Hue’s famous salt style coffee and it was delicious.
In Hoi An, we went for the food and sightseeing tour in the evening around the ancient town. Also thanks to Lam for helping mum negotiate prices in the market 😀 We also did the Eco Country Side tour of Hoi An which we took the basket boat ride and dad got to ride a very well loved and well cared for fluffy water buffalo. We also visited My Son Sanctuary and it was like something out of Uncharted / Indiana Jones.
The tours are flexible and easygoing and the food throughout was delicious! Tipping is not mandatory but I highly recommend it, especially if you have enjoyed the services of your guides and or drivers 🙂
Xuan Tu & her amazing team has made this trip to central Vietnam spectacular and unforgettable!
