    Stop At: Perfume River, Hue Vietnam

    In the morning, after hotel pickup in Hue, your private tour starts with transfer to the harbor for your boat trip on the Perfume River,

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: Thien Mu Pagoda, Kim Long Road, Hue Vietnam

    Visit Thien Mu pagoda, one of Hue's top landmarks. Differing legends theorize how the pagoda came to be—one tells of an old woman who instructed Lord Hoang Nguyen in 1601 to walk contemplatively along the river with a lit incense stick and to build a city at the spot where the incense stopped burning.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Tomb of Khai Dinh, Thuy Bang Commune, Huong Thuy, 530000 Vietnam

    Next, take a short drive into a lush valley of the river where seven tombs were built for seven Nguyen emperors. Each is an expression of the personality of the man whose remains it holds, and each is comprised of three elements: a temple dedicated to the worship of the deceased emperor and his queen, a stone stele that records the biographical and historical high points of his life, and the royal tomb itself. You'll visit the tomb of emperors Khai Dinh,

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Tomb of Minh Mang, Huong Tho, Hurong Tra, Hue 530000 Vietnam

    Visit Minh Mang tomb before heading outside of town for a lunch of classic Hue cuisine at a restaurant in a garden setting.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Hue Royal Palace, Thuan Thanh, Hue Vietnam

    In the afternoon, return to the city to see the massive Kinh Thanh Citadel, the most iconic site in Hue. Begun in 1805 by Emperor Gia Long, it is actually a sprawling UNESCO-listed complex comprised of the Imperial City, several museums, lakes, and gardens, all laid out in a series of concentric circles. You'll also visit the Forbidden Purple City, originally built in the early 1800s for the personal use of the emperor and staffed by eunuchs who posed no threat to the royal concubines. Nearly destroyed in the Tet Offensive, the ruins today house the Royal Library, and the grounds flourish with mimosa plants and vegetable gardens.

    Your tour ends with transfer back to your hotel.
