Full description
Hue (pronounced ‘hway’) was the capital city of Vietnam where the Nguyen dynasty ruled from 1802 to 1945. Hue owes its charm partly to its location on the Perfume River. This location is also the destination of palaces, pagodas, tombs, temples, culture, and cuisine, as well as history and heartbreak — as such, the city is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site status. This private excursion gives you an opportunity to explore not only the Imperial Citadel of Hue, Thien Mu Pagoda, and the Perfume River but also a chance to meet local people in a rural village. Your tour guide will pick up you at your hotel and upon arrival in Hue, you will visit locations and sites such as Haivan Pass, Langco Bay, the Khai Dinh Tomb, the Minh Mang Tomb and the Conical Hat Making Making Village. After having lunch, you will visit the Royal Citadel, the Forbidden City, Hue Royal Museum, and the seven-story Thien Mu Pagoda on the riverbank. After your visit to Thien Mu Pagoda, you'll board a dragon boat for sight-seeing along the Perfume River. At the end of the tour, you'll be dropped off at the hotel you were picked up from.

Our day trip from Hoi An to Hue with Mr. Ha Thanh was one of the best and most interesting we have had so far. The whole day was well organized and our driver was also very friendly and experienced in the rather chaotic traffic of Vietnam. Mr. Ha is really very nice and helpful and speaks very good English. We would book a tour with him again without hesitation. Thank you Mr Ha Thanh for this great day! :-)

Great day tour Me and my wife booked this private day tour to Hue with driver and guide as we wanted to see the sights at our leisure. We were picked up from our hotel in an SUV. The vehicle was comfortable and clean. Our driver Thao was a very confident and safe driver. Our guide Ha Thanh was very friendly, personable and knowledgeable and provided us with very good and understandable information about the culture and history of our host country during the tour. He also knew exactly where we had to make a photo stop to take nice pictures and how we could escape the tourist hustle and bustle a bit. He is also a very good photographer and took very nice souvenir photos of us with our camera. Lunch in a nice restaurant was very good. Overall, it was a great day tour that we can recommend to anyone who doesn't want to just run around in a big group behind a guide's banner and hastily run from place to place. The tour was very enjoyable and worth every cent. Top.
