Highly recommended

I was picked up from the Cham Museum and we picked up other people on the way to Hoi An where we arrived at the "Hoi An Express" travel ggency office. From here we started our tour of Hoi An with our guide. The guide was excellent and he pointed out all the key sites. Our entrance fees were included to a number of the houses and to the small theatre where we had a enjoyable half hour show of traditional music and dancing. We were taken to the restaurant where we had a typical Vietnamese lunch. We had about 2 hours free time to wander around Hoi An and then we met back at the Hoi An Express Office where we picked up our transport to Marble Mountain. Lots of steps but well worth the visit. In short-this was an excellent tour and I would have no hesitation of recommending it

Despite little upfront information on the agenda, a very recommendable and beautiful experience. A must for everyone visiting Vietnam! We had a nice walking city tour through Hoi An including admission to museums and temples. At times you get into shops where they try to sell you something but without being pushy. After lunch (included in price) and 2 hours of free time, we were in for the second part: marble mountains. Also here people try to sell you some marble work but no pressure. The mountain tour was very nice, too.
