What people are saying about South Central Coast

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.

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!

Great trip, you could have saved yourself the snorkeling at this point but it was still great to jump into the water and swim :)

Gum is doing great on taking us to the food tour! Shared a lot stories to us and food were all good!!
