Our guide Fi was excellent to tour with. She gave good information but not too much, which gave time for exploration on our own. Her English was great and very personable. The service provided was excellent and would highly recommend to anyone in the Hue area, especially on a tight itinerary because this one hits all the highlights of such a culturally rich area in comfort and good value.

Xi was THE BEST! She was so incredibly knowledgable and more than happy to answer any questions we had about the sites and Vietnamese culture in general. She made the day very easy and enjoyable often asking us for input on pacing and such. She even sent us wonderful recommendations for dinner and nightlife near our hotel. Book with Xi for your first day here- you will not be disappointed!

On the tour note- wear comfortable shoes and clothing as you will be walking and climbing stairs and needing to remove shoes at some locations. We had light rain most of the day which did not bother us on the tour. There is so much info, if you are taking pics, be sure to snap one of the map of each site as a reminder.

Hue is a fascinating city, full of history and stories reflected in the magnificent Imperial City, the Perfume River, its colourful temples and the Royal Tombs and this tour is very well organized (you see everything without rushing) and it is good value for money considering lunch and transport is included.
I would like to point out the extremely great work by tour guide Xi who was superb with her informative (but not boring) comments and always very professional, helpful and friendly attitude during the whole tour. I spent 2 weeks in Vietnam doing multiple activities and tours and Xi was by far the best guide of all!

This is an amazing tour! Our guide XI was so knowledgeable and answered every question anyone could think of
Her English is excellent and she is a lovely person. The tour is very comprehensive with boat ride pagoda imperial city 2 tombs and market plus an 8 course lunch that was delicious. They can cater to dietary restrictions and in fact XI asked everyone before we started if they had food allergies. I thought it was great value. The driver was excellent and the mini c’van had AC and was comfortable. I would highly recommend this tour to get the most out of your time in Hue and make sure you ask for XI as your tour guide. Thanks for everything Xi- you are amazing!!

This was perfect! I was picked up promptly at 8:00 and the van was really comfortable. Our guide Tuan was excellent - well informed, perfect English, delightful personality. The sites were so amazing; so much beauty, history, and tragedy all rolled into one. The boat ride on the Perfume River was fun and relaxing. Lunch was excellent and accommodated several of us who were vegetarians. The visit to the market was fun and informative. Making and watching incense being made was really interesting. Highly recommend this tour if your time in Hue is short and you want to see as much as possible in a short time.

My husband and I had a very short time to visit Hue and booked this tour hoping to get a snapshot of the city and its historical sites. The tour 100% met our expectations.

Our tour guide van Xi (pronounced ‘C’), she was absolutely lovely and provided us with a lot of historical and current facts.

We would definitely recommend this tour to other travelers visiting Hue.

An extremely well organized and interesting tour, which covers all the interesting destinations in a day. Our guide, Hoang, was extremely friendly and informative. We initially wanted to attempt to visit the destinations by ourselves but have no regrets joining this tour. Hoangs knowledge to all the destinations was tip top and it made the experience that much better, as it gave us a better understanding of the places we were visting. His English was really good as well, making communication extremely easy and he also gave us local tips and helped us understand Vietnamese culture better. The tour itself is extremely well organized as well, managing to squeeze in a variety of destinations in a short time, with a ample time spent at each place. Highly recommended.

We had an amazing day with Ms. Fi (our guide) today. There wasn't a group available since its the beginning of the tourist season but the private tour was really worth it. We were picked up at out hotel personally from Fi, were accompanied all the time and the transport was in a nice car. Ms Fi answered alla our questions not only about the Citadel and the Tombs but also about Vietnamese daily life and helped us bargain in Dong Ba Market! The contact with the Deluxe Group Tours was quick efficient and hassle free. The restaurant we ad lunch quite nice with local dishes. I would definitely book again, the tour is hugely recommended!

We took the tour and had Xi (pronounced C) as our guide. She took great care of us and the little things the tour company does is appreciated. You can read the other reviews about the great things you will do and see. Xi came right to our door to get us, offered us water bottles numerous times and gave us hand wipes a couple of times. She spoke excellent English and was very professional. I have been on other tours where the guide likes to talk to much but she was great. Lovely person and so kind and thoughtful. She also would always remind us to remember our things and would kindly tell us whether or not what we would be seeing would be the only time in case we wanted a picture. All those little things really put this tour company over the top in terms of a pleasant experience

The day in question for the tour was not kind from a weather perspective, but our day was brightened with the arrival of our tour guide Xi. From the start Xi made the tour interesting with a trip to a local street market, that was followed by visits to
Hue Imperial City (The Citadel), Tomb of Khai Dinh, Tomb of Minh Mang and Museum of Royal Antiquities. A really good tour with a guide of high quality.
