What people are saying about Da Nang (Municipality)

Practical and efficient

An excellent solution for those who have to move from Hue to Hoi An: the driver was helpful and courteous throughout the journey, the pick-up took place very punctually in our hotel, the new and spacious car (there were three of us and we had lots of luggage) and allowed us to move very comfortably. On the way we stopped at some vantage points to take photos (actually nothing, but it was nice), in the museum of archaeological finds in Da Nang and in the Marble Mountains, pleasant and interesting visits (visits are not mandatory , so for those in a hurry they can be skipped, for this reason the entrances are not included and must be paid separately). Absolutely recommended.

Very much seen

We were picked up punctually at our hotel and had our personal guide, who was very, very motivated. Unfortunately, there is the excursion only in English and not in German. What was not so nice, we had only a little time at the attractions. But since we are still a week here, we can leave all stations again and now know where everything is ,

Enchanting island ! Not to be missed!

Speedy boat to Chàm Island and met with beautiful scenery and even more beautiful Islanders! Had a fantastic lunch with other groups and had so much fun !! Bought lovely necklaces and bracelets from local people at a very reasonable price! Next time I’m on Chàm islands I will stay for a few days ! Simply beautiful place !!
