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 had a great experience on this tour, from the market visit, to the bamboo boat ride & of course the cooking lesson. Our guide was very helpful & full of useful information, even sharing the locations of her favourite restaurants to try cao Lau, bahn mi etc. The cooking lesson was good and we were given a copy of the recipes to take with us. I will definitely cook them again at home, although I may have to adapt them slightly if I can't find rice paper easily!
Highly recommend this trip, and it is well worth the early wake up. Be aware sunrise will be seen from the car, however, the highlight of this trip is that you arrive at the park just in time for opening so your group will most likely be the only people there. This means great pics and a tranquil and peaceful tour. Arrive back into Hoi An around 10 to enjoy the rest of your morning and day - perfect
