I do not normally do reviews but I had to do one for this trip.
When the four of us were picked up on time by Xuan Tu from our cruise ship port we could not anticipate what a special day this was going to be. Xuan Tu who speaks perfect English is most delightful, enthusiastic and also her knowledge of her country and city was amazing. Her passion for Vietnam and Da Nang was remarkable !
She was a delight to be with for the day and she really gave us the full flavour of what it was like to live in Da Nang and Hoi An. We went to places where I am sure most tourist trips do not go. (In particular those off Cruise Ships the feedback of which was not so good and very expensive!)
We stopped in Da Nang for coffee first before moving on to the delightful town of Hoi An, a place of so much character. When it rained Xuan Tu immediately bought us all ponchos so we would not get wet. Fortunately the rain did not last long ! Had a lovely lunch in a locals street cafe with Xuan Tu, recommended by her as she knew the husband and wife running it and only £20 for the five of us including drinks !
We went from Hoi An to see Marble Mountain and also the Lady Buddha Statue. Xuan Tu was absolutely full of interesting information everywhere we went and she passed it on with so much passion. It was a joy to see.
Once again thank you Xuan Tu for a day we will never forget and becoming a new friend not just a tour guide.
Anyone spending just one day in Da Nang do this as there cannot be anything better !
