My cousin and I booked a private full day tour of Danang and half day tour of My Son. Throughout our correspondence, Xuan was very prompt in replying and answering any of our queries and made the whole booking process simple and smooth.
Our tour guide, Lam, and the driver for the Danang trip arrived at our hotel on time (early in fact) and we started our trip with the Marble Mountains. We were blessed with great weather and amazing light during our time at Marble Mountain and even got great shots out of the place (with the help of Lam, who would make a pretty good photographer I must say). After which we headed for lunch and coffee, both of which were patronized by many locals, places we may not be able to find if we were travelling on our own. Lam was very considerate and made sure to always check with us before bringing us to places. We then headed to Hai Van Pass and Lam even suggested to see the lagoon which we were so pleasantly surprised with! It was such a gorgeous place (and also a great photo point). From Hai Van Pass, we drove back to the city to experience Con Market in all its local glory. We really appreciated that Lam introduced us to a number of local delights and we even went back another day to buy more ourselves! We ended the day at Son Tra peninsula and visiting the Lady Buddha. Lam and our driver made sure to drop us at our dinner place near our hotel(another one of Lam’s recommendations), even checking the route back before they knocked off for the day.
However, the half day tour to My Son was less of an experience compared to the Danang tour. We felt that our tour guide (we were given a different guide as Lam was unable to guide us due to personal matters that came up) was not able to provide us with as much information in comparison. We found that it was not as value for money since we only visited My Son but did not get much out of the visit to the UNESCO site.
Overall, we really enjoyed the experience and recommend the Danang tour for those looking to visit the place. We would like to thank Lam for going the extra mile and even checking in on us throughout the other days of our trip and giving us recommendations to places.
