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. After having lunch, you will visit the Royal Citadel, the Forbidden City, Hue Royal Museum, and the seven-story Thien Mu Pagoda on the riverbank. After your visit to Thien Mu Pagoda, you'll board a dragon boat for sight-seeing along the Perfume River. At the end of the tour, you'll be dropped off at the hotel you were picked up from.

Great experience with our guide, who was knowledgeable and let us understand so many things about not only My Son itself but also about the general Vietnamese culture.

Hassle free trip to My Son, with an excellent driver who was early to pick us up and a fab guide, Michael, who was very knowledgeable and interesting.

Sang was a great host and very knowledgable on the history of the ruins. The My Son Sanctuary is a must see when traveling between Da Nang and Hoi An
