If you really want to see the great sights in Hue then do yourself a favour and take this trip with Thanh Van. We were picked up from our hotel and shown all the major attractions. Thanh Van is a local and very knowledgeable about the history and culture of her home city.

Vanho showed great humour in teaching us about the many beautiful parts of historic Hue. She went out of her way to care for her group. Nothing was too much trouble. It was a hot day but the tougher it got, the more energy she put into entertaining us. Thank you for a great tour.
