The tour takes to meet two of the most fascinating places in the city. My Son sanctuary with all of the history of the place back on previous centuries and the Marble Mountains with their pagodas, caves and amazing views. My tour guide was Nhung who was a great guide, she was always sharing details and comments on the places that we were visiting and make sure I was comfortable and enjoying the trip. It was a great tour!

I took it to a tourist spot efficiently, so I enjoyed it. It was good that the tourist information was also polite! Since it was a friendly guide, it was fun to go around together.

Our guide was very helpful and constantly gave information throughout the trip, it was well organised and spent plenty of time in each place

The tunnels were so interesting and definitely under utilised. The display at the Heroic Mother was great

Very good organisation and lot of information about history.
