The transfer from Da Nang to Hue went well. Upon agreement, the driver will stop at the sights and wait there. You have enough time to explore them. It would be good to book in good time in order to be able to clarify departure and other details beforehand. As stated in the description, tickets are not included.

Was a great tour with simultaneous transfer. Especially our guide (Mr.D) was super friendly & spoke good English so that we could learn a lot along the way.

Very worthwhile and interesting tour. Our guide Elli was incredibly nice and knew a lot, her English was very good.

Nice mix of sites - but concentrating mainly on the Imperial Citadel. The guide was fun and informative.

Good tour guide. Tour guide named Two was very attentive and a joy to be around.
