The tour was very well organized and we got what we expected. We were picked up at the homestay on time and arrived at the ticket office on time. We had to buy our tickets there ourselves. Our guide was very funny, had a nice chat with us on the car ride and informed us a bit about the temples (however, guides from other groups gave more detailed information). We had a short time to take photos and got to watch a show at the end. Lunch was very simple with a vegetarian option. The boat ride was nice, but you could have saved yourself this experience as it was only about 20 minutes from Hoi An. All in all, the tour was worth it, because the temple complex is really worth seeing.

Everything was great. It rained for us but it wasn't that bad. Just put on a poncho and move on. That's probably why there weren't that many people there. I wouldn't have needed the boat ride, but it was still good.

Barry is the best tour guide in Hoi An. He told us many interesting things on our way to and in My Son. He took care of us and I had a wonderful time. As the cream on the top He sang great karaoke for us.

My Son Sanctuary is definitely worth the visit! It’s very beautiful and also its history is very interesting.

I hope we could stay longer at the sanctuary. Other than that, everything was great!
