What people are saying about Da Nang
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!
We went in January and it was very foggy but we still managed to get some good pics and see everything without any crowds! Lovely. Our tour was fantastic the guide ‘Snow’ was so informative and friendly. She was such a pleasure to spend the day with. The car picked us and dropped us off at the hotel and we were looked after all day, everything was included. The food is a buffet and has everything you would want, Asian and western. Just brilliant we will come back maybe when it’s less foggy though!
The tour takes to meet two of the most fascinating places in the city. My Son sanctuary with all of the history of the place back on previous centuries and the Marble Mountains with their pagodas, caves and amazing views. My tour guide was Nhung who was a great guide, she was always sharing details and comments on the places that we were visiting and make sure I was comfortable and enjoying the trip. It was a great tour!
I booked this transfer for a relaxing, seamless, and cheap way to get from Hoi An all the way to Da Nang airport. It exceeded my expectations! The staff was very professional and confirmed my hotel's name and address by iMessage the day before. They arrived on time, and got me to the airport within the window they quoted. I'd absolutely book again in the future. Highly recommend!
On time, excellent low price. Comfy and air conditioned buses. I used them 3 times.
