    The trip was very good, the tour guide even better! I feel like you won’t enjoy it as much unless the tour guide is good! Tin was ours and he educated us SO much about not only the places we were seeing but also. About Vietnam, and Hoi An culture. I learned so much today! He was super nice and like I said before made the trip extremely more enjoyable! Thank you Tin it was so good to meet you!

    learned a lot about area though seeing the best part first and then everything getting smaller and less impressive made me think do tour in reverse but maybe that was just me

    I was solo and wanted to see My son sanctuary so this tour satisfied what I wanted. Although lunch was so so and small bus ride was not present I enjoyed site visiting. 1人でミーソン遺跡に行きたかったので、こ ツアーに参加しました。遺跡を見るという 的は果たせたので良かったのですが、バス 内は狭くて昼食もまあまあでした。

    My son is definitely a place that should be visited whilst in the area. About an hours journey and you can see the ruins and be back in time for afternoon tea. The tour however is questionable. Picked up on time with a good minibus, comfortable all the way. o/a however felt very rushed around the sight, missed one ruin sight and completely missed the museum. I enjoyed the boat trip back, but don’t expect a cruise liner. We got ditched at the road side and told the boat would pick us up in a junk yard. Also fill up on breakfast as lunch is a cold noodles and meats dish which we skipped. The entrance fee is 150,000, so if you can arrange a taxi do this option.

    I booked the trip for me and my friend. We were impressed by the profession of the tour guide. He is so hilarious and attentive. His English is pretty good so he has no problem explaining to you the myth and untold history about My Son sanctuary. I suggest you should bring with you an umbrella if you visit this place in the summer because the sun is so bright. On the other hand, the temperature is so nice. There is always wind blowing through this mountain so you can feel cool and fresh.

    Our tour started with the bus breaking down and waiting for a replacement. I guess this could not be helped, but the second bus had no bottled water which was stated on the tour description. My Son sanctuary was interesting but very hot particularly with no water. When we boarded the boat for the trip back to Hoi An, our guide left us, so there was no commentary. Again no water and with a very ordinary lunch with no option for vegetarians. The boat operator was more intent on selling over priced soft drinks. And what happened to the carpentry village as promised. Sorry no. They were running behind time. Cannot recommend. The operators need to improve. Don’t bother with this one.

    Firstly found the company very helpful, for some reason booking was on the wrong day but they were great at amending the booking with no hassle. On the day the bus was a little late picking us up which wasn’t too bad. We arrived at My Son and was told the tour would only allow us to be there for an hour as we then had to rush back for the boat cruise. It was a particularly hot day teaching 36 degrees by 11am and we felt we were rushed around My Son and didn’t have enough time there. Our guide tried his best but his English was a little poor which made it difficult to understand what was said. The boat cruise was ok felt like it might have been an unnecessary add on for the trip would have liked to spent a bit more time at the sanctuary. My Son is definitely worth checking out we thoroughly enjoyed our time there even in the heat!

    Disappointing tour. An hour late collecting me from my hotel. No bottle of water handed out as listed in the itinerary. And had to pay another 150000 Dong for Entrance Ticket, which was also listed as included. There was a long way to walk from the bus to the site rest stop and then onto what little was left of the My Son temples, which were carpet bombed by the Americans in the War. What a tragic piece of warfare.

    It was fiercely hot..about 40 deg. Some passengers were suffering badly from the heat.

    The trip back was partially on a small, noisy boat with rice and veg served on a plastic plate for lunch (ok) but then topped up from insulated bucket! Arrival back in Hoi An was another considerable walk from the riverside quay to the centre.
    All in all, not overwhelmed by any of it, and the heat was excessive.
