What people are saying about South Central Coast

Awesome experience if your looking for a shorter timed day trip. Only 5 hours but you see a ton. Pickup and drop off was super easy and the drives are quick from Da Nang. No negatives but if you don’t like walking up stairs it may not be for you. Lots of steps up to the top of marble mountain but you can also climb through caves to get to the top. That was personally the best part for us. Really enjoyed it and the hosts are great!

What an amazing tour. Anh, our guide, did a great job showing us around, sharing information about the area, and being our personal photographer. We loved being able to explore outside the city and see gardens, fields, animals, and more. The lunch at the end was also delicious! We highly recommend this tour!

The cooking class was a fun and unique way to experience the food in Hoi An. The chef and all staff involved in the tour were very professional and knowledgeable and we had lots of fun. The food was good

It was really great, unfortunately very touristy with all the stops with acrobats and singers, all of whom want money

Marble mountains are so incredible!! And the lunch was excellent.
