As a solo traveler, I prefer a private tour guide when visiting new places. You expect to receive a more personalized experience and a package tour customized to your liking.
When I reached out to Xuan Tu Tours, however, I basically I wanted to see everything in 3 days… everything to the extent of the tours offered on their website – My Son, Hoi An, Hue, Da Nang and Ba Na.
What I received exceeded my expectations. Lam is an excellent tour guide. By the end of the first day, I felt I was exploring Hoi An with a good friend. Lam is an engaging storyteller and is genuinely interested in knowing more about you. He grew up in Da Nang city and is an expert in the history of the region. I appreciated his pace and his observation that I was flexible with trying new things.
In addition to the planned itinerary, we went off the beaten path and sampled street food in various alleys or in areas away from the city centers that I would have certainly never found myself.
I highly recommend Xuan Tu Tours. When I return, I will request that customized alley tour… 🙂
