Admission Included

Vong Canh Hill

Vong Canh itself is now covered with pine trees and daisy. Once, there was a purpose-built watching tower on the top of the hill, though only parts of its foundation remain until today. Besides, Water plant Van Nien – which is the oldest in Central Vietnam and an Oriental-styled building designed by French architecture, just 300m from Vong Canh, is also a visit-worthy destination.

Thien Mu Pagoda

The oldest pagoda in Hue is Thien Mu Pagoda whose establishment is associated with the early actions of the first Nguyen Lord in Dang Trong (South Vietnam). This legend relates how, when Nguyen Hoang was sent to Thuan Hoa (now Central Vietnam) to rule this area, he himself made a survey of the terrain to choose a site for settling down. As he rode his horse upstream along the Huong River side he saw a small hillock beside the river, whose terrain looked like a dragon turning its head back. This hill was called Ha Khe. The local people told a story that every night an old lady in a red blouse and green trousers appeared here saying that a true Lord would come to this place and build a pagoda for the prosperity of the country. Thus this place became known as Thien Mu Son (Heavenly Lady Mountain).

An Dinh Palace

Located by the bank of An Cuu canal, An Dinh palace used to be the private residence of Nguyen Phuc Buu Dao (later the king Khai Dinh). This construction was renovated in modern style between 1917-1919 and officially became the residence of the crown-prince Vinh Thuy (later Bao Dai king).

Two of the most amazing days in Vietnam with this young man. He knows the hidden treasures of Hue… sites, food, coffee and local vibes. I felt so safe on the back of his Moto and he was incredibly cautious. Took me off the beaten path to show me the natural beauty of his country. His pride for his heritage and the natural wonders of Vietnam show through all during his tour. Great historical knowledge and gave me ample time to wander.

Had the pleasure of Huy's company whilst riding pillion around greater Hue this afternoon. A fabulous driver and great conversationalist, Huy has a passion for sharing his city's history and spirit that makes for a very interesting afternoon. (He was also super-kind and delayed the start of my trip as my own bus was caught in traffic on the way to Hue!!) Together we visited several sites and talked about the city's culture, the harmony between architecture and nature, and the various influences that have made Hue the location it is today. We saw remnants of occupation, war, kingdoms and business ventures gone sour. We saw some hope the Vietnamese hold in each other, and for the future. A great way to get out of the centre and learn a little more about the land you're on, and a fantastic way to help bump up a uni student's skills. Thanks again for the great adventure!

My guide was Huy for these trip. He really was so nice and kind. His english and explanation was very good and interesting, he knows a lit of the traditions and history. The highlight for me was the abandoned water park.

We toured with Huy and Ruby. Both were knowledgeable, polite, kind and fun. We passengers on scooters. This was a new experience for my sister and me. Both guides were experienced scooter riders. My sister and me felt safe and confident in their abilities. They not only gave us information about the places we visited but they also spoke and their culture and way of life. They were passionate and proud of their country. This tour was a last-minute decision for us. We booked at 10am on New Year's Day and our tour started at 12 am! It was defintely worth it. The Abandoned Water Park is about to be closed for good. The entrance had been demolished the morning of our tour!!! So glad we did this tour. I would recommend it!

The tour was brilliant! We saw lots of bits of Hue that we would never have seen without local guidance. The tour leader was Huy, communication was excellent in advance, we were picked up at our hotel on 4 motorbikes and looked after well throughout the trip

Huy and Ngoc were fantastic and knowledgeable. A really fun day. Don't forget to bring some extra money for some parking here and there

This experience was incredible. I highly reccomend coming to experience the Citadel with a guide. The history is very rich and the Citadel is so big, it was easy to navigate with a guide. Phúc was an incredible tour guide, not only is she very kind and sweet, but she has a very vast knowledge of the citadel and of Hue. She showed me the best place to eat, and touring the Citadel with her was incredible. She made the experience very enjoyable and interesting. Thank you Phúc!

We got picked up at our Hotel right on time by our local Guides Huy and Trang who took the two of us on their Bikes. I never drove on one before but felt very safe since both were good drivers. The sights they showed us were breathtaking and realy worth the visit. I would suggest this Tour to everyone visiting Hue.

I had a perfect day with this tour operator. The guide was a local student speaking excellent English. We visited all the important sights in Hue and he was super friendly.

A great afternoon spent with amazing local students. Everyone was so lovely and got along really well. The students were really open to answer our questions and joke around with us. Went to some cool places and had a delicious local snack. Definitely recommend to anyone looking to make some friends and see the local sights.
