What a great tour! Our tour guide, Michael, not only was hilarious, but he also was very informative and I really found that I gained some great knowledge behind Buddhism in Vietnam. The day started with a prompt pick up from our hotel. From there we visited the Lady Buddha, which is the tallest Lady Buddha statue in Vietnam and offered some beautiful views of Da Nang. We then visited a marble shop in a local village to see how the marble sculptures are made/purchase some if you would like. We travelled to the marble mountains from here, which depicts the 7 levels of karma and then we went to Am Phu cave which was beautiful! The tour ended with a lunch at a local restaurant, which consisted of wide rice noodles, meat of your choice, broth & veg, which was enjoyable. I would recommend this tour if you are interested in finding out more about the Vietnamese culture, religion and to see beautiful views of Da Nang.

We loved this tour! Michael was an amazing tour guide, and ensured we had all of the information throughout the day. He was super personable & very funny, it made it all the more enjoyable. We saw everything we wanted to, and were allowed free time to explore in each place. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes, as there is quite a lot of walking. Especially the steps at the mountain! 10/10, highly recommend☺️

We had a very good day with Loi as our guide. He knew a lot about the places we were going and were very helpful with getting tickets for the different places. Everything was nicely planned and he took a lot of great pictures of us and even gave us recommendations for Hoi An. Would definitely recommend this tour and recommend having Loi as your guide!

Thanks so much to Michael, our tour guide who made this trip absolutely enjoyable. The places are amazing, full of positive energy. Noodles were yummy too. Best of luck to this amazing team.

I really enjoyed the tour and would recommend! Very organized.
