We had a great time travelling with Tri and Long from Hue to Hoi An, even though it started off chucking it down with rain we had waterproofs that kept us warm and dry! We made lots of stops along the way learning about local culture and history, as well as some stunning views. My favourite stops were Marble Mountains for the detailed carvings (plus it had stopped raining) and Lang Co Beach where we had a delicious lunch and the locals were so friendly, if it wasn’t raining the beach would have been lush to walk along too!

Tom was very experienced and eloquent. He shared a lot of insights on the history, culture. Took good care of us too. Always checking in on us, ensuring we have the best experience. Thumbs up!

Thanks to the team for the great organization, tk the guide to the driver and in general for the great tine we had !! Congratulations
