Private Excursion of Hue from Hoi An or Danang City

1. Private Excursion of Hue from Hoi An or Danang City

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.

What people are saying about Da Nang (Municipality)

A wonderful, fun and super-tasty day! Visiting the market together was fun and colorful, but even lovelier was our stop at a community farm. The cooking class itself was amazing! Detailed, hands-on, organized and informative. And the recipes were exceptionally tasty. The transportation was also very comfortable and the kitchen is located in a brand new house in an up and coming neighborhood. Had a great day!

It was wonderful. Pick-up and transfer with 5 minutes delay, otherwise great. We then met our tour guide at the marble mountains. Very nice, informative and set up. The tour was educational and exciting. It wasn't 4 hours, but it really isn't necessary. Thank you for the great afternoon.

It was a lot of fun buying our ingredients from the market and making delicious meals with them. We also got welcoming drinks at the start and end of class which were excellent. They were very patient with us teaching us steps of how to make each dish.

Cool experience at the market and great hospitality and kindness from the staff. Highly recommended

Cool Guide. Interesting to see, but nothing to fancy. Good price!
