You need yo take these tours! I can't stress enough how great this service was. My husband and I were in Da Nang for a couple of days during Tet, and they were so kind to take us on a tour to Marble Mountains, The Lady Buda and An Phu Cave. Communication was great from the very start, we could arrange everything online and by a phone call. Our guides were so nice and experienced people, they picked us up at our hotel early in the morning and took us on their bikes, it was so fun. We stopped on the road to take some pictures while they were explaining us about the places we would visit, then they took us to many hidden little paths so we could reach points with gorgeous views, and God they are fit people, the tour demands some energy from your body since you'll be walking and doing some climbing as well, but it's all worth it, you get to see incredible sculptures in dramatic caves, impressive landscapes... while learning a lot about a fascinating culture. Highly recommend this tour!

Our guide was exceptionally friendly and sweet! It was just us who booked the tour on this day so it was private. The car was very comfortable and spacious, there was also complimentary water provided. There was a nice small walking tour through some of the murals in the village. The only thing I was a bit disappointed with is that we did not have an opportunity to see all the murals in the village. This is because we were led back into the car which quickly drove past the second section of murals and some painted basket boats. And by the time we realized, it was too late to feel comfortable asking to turn back. It would have been nice to have more time to walk around, explore and take a closer look.

Spring was a great guide with fantastic clear English. It was a little difficult to hear what was being said around the market because of the bustle and size of the group. My daughter (11) and I had a great day. To travel to the course by boat was nice and the bamboo boats were a fun thing to do with my daughter. We caught 7 crabs! The cooking course was hands on which was brilliant. I liked that you ate each course as it was cooked rather than everything at the end. An enjoyable day and highly recommend.

I think the view is magnificent, we were unlucky that it was cloudy. the golden bridge is grand, but the french village is a bunch of bad copies of disneyland and the Efteling. make sure you eat well in advance as the food on offer is poor, extremely touristy and little choice. because the virus makes the park nice and quiet due to the lack of many (mainly Chinese) tourists, 50% of the restaurants are also closed

An excellent tour that was very enjoyable. My Son Sanctuary is very beautiful and it was well worth getting up early in the morning for! Our guide was lovely and so informative. Very highly recommended
