Private tour of Da Nang and Hoi An

I found Xuan Tu Tours by an online search and I booked it as a result of the very high praise by other travellers. The moment I e mailed them it was an instant response offering me a tour with a difference. We were travelling with another couple one of which had recent knee surgery and all of this was taken into account by both the company and our excellent guide Lam.It is a company who takes pride in what they do and the people they employ. On our tour day Lam accompanied by his driver was early for the tour and sat down with us in the hotel to discuss options and to see what we wanted to see and do. He adapted everything to our taste and choice. His personal manner, attitude and friendly nature made our day. He was very witty , informative and always took into account our personal needs. We started by visiting Marble Mountain in Da Nang which was very interesting and then we went onto the Lady Buddha followed by a visit to a traditional Vietnamese coffee shop which Lam frequents as his local. Lunch was had and part of the tour in a local Vietnamese cafe and we were guided by Lam on the food and drink. WE continued our tour by visiting private homes in Hoi an, one consisted of a family who make and sell rice noodles and the family received us with open arms and we got the opportunity to make them ourselves being guided by the family. We then visited a family house who specialised in weaving matting, once again we were received with open arms. Our day trip was excellent and we had the opportunity to see real life and be given information from a local guide, not eh falseness of guide books. We could not have picked a better company for this tour and certainly we could not have picked a better guide. Lam is a credit to both his country and his company. I would certainly use this company again and request Lam as our guide.
