A wonderful tour that shows you everything you need know the history of the My Son sanctuary and Hoi An. Our tour guide was very friendly, we learned a lot not only about the sights but also the life of the local people and how it's still being affected by the recent history of the country. My Son is beautiful, impressive and the tour was timed so we could watch a charming local music & dance performance. In Hoi An, we visited several sites with great historical importance.
