  • Da Nang: Lady Buddha, Monkey Mountain and Am Phu Cave Tour

    1. Da Nang: Lady Buddha, Monkey Mountain and Am Phu Cave Tour

    After pickup from your hotel in Da Nang or Hoi An, visit the Son Tra Mountain, also known as Monkey Mountain, to gain insight into Vietnam's rich history of Buddhism and Hinduism. Then, visit the Lady Buddha statue, the tallest Buddhist statue in Vietnam, reaching a height of 220 feet (67 meters). Next, visit local stone factories and sculpture shops, before visiting Marble Mountain. Visit the Âm Phủ cave, to take a walk through a re-creation of Buddhist hell. At midday enjoy lunch in a local restaurant with authentic Vietnamese dishes. You'll be transferred back to your hotel around 1:00 PM.

    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!

  • Hoi An: Small-Group Ba Na Hills and Golden Bridge Tour

    2. Hoi An: Small-Group Ba Na Hills and Golden Bridge Tour

    Explore the Ba Na Hills and including all of its attractions, both old and new. Your group will ride gravity-defying cable cars through the misty mountains, and there will be time to snap photos along the magnificent Golden Bridge, an elevated walkway through the mountains supported by two enormous stone hands. Afterwards, experience the history of the region by going on an adventure below ground to see French cellars that were used to distill alcohol during the colonial era; a true step back in time for history lovers. Before the end of the day, there will be a gentle hike up Chua Mountain for panoramic views and to visit the Linh Chua Linh Tu Temple and Linh Ung Pagoda, which is famous for its large Buddha.

    Quan was a fabulous tour guide for our trip to the Ba Na Hills! Happily showed us around and took heaps of photos for us as well as told us the history behind the place. An extra stop on the way there to see the the marble from Marble Mountain and a stop on the way home at the Faifo Coffee & Tea factory for a tour- both free of charge. Would 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

Nhung is an excellent and exceptionally friendly guide. She was fantastic, we were very happy to be with her the whole day! When you book this tour, ask for Nhung as your guide, she will take care of you. We loved the nature, the jungles, the bridge :) Our driver who works with Nhung was a great guy, we felt very safe while driving from Hoi An.
