Know More about this tour

Head to Hue, along the North coast of Da Nang to the top of Hai Van Pass where bunkers remaining from the war can be explored. Upon arrival in Hue, we will visit the Citadel, Hues prime attraction, which contains the Imperial City, the Forbidden Purple City and the Emperor's Private Residence. Hue citadel was built from 1804 to 1833 under the Nguyens Dynasty (the last feudalist kingdom in Vietnam). The grounds of the Imperial City are protected by fortified ramparts 2 kilometers and ringed by a moat. Inside the citadel, there are many different construction works such as: Imperial City Gates, Purple Forbidden City, Temples and places of worshipping, pavilions, gardens, etc.

Following the morning activities, we will have a short break for lunch. In the afternoon, we will take a boat trip on the Perfume River with a stopover at Thien Mu Pagoda, considered by many as the unofficial symbol of Hue. It is an active Buddhist monastery with its origins dating back to 1601. One of its most poignant displays is a car belonging to a former monk, who in 1963, drove to Sai Gon and set himself alight to protest against the South Vietnamese regime and its cruel treatment of Buddhist monks and followers

From here, we will go to visit the serene Khai Dinh Royal Tomb, designed to blend in with its natural surroundings and built on principles of feng-shui.

  • The tour is provided by Hoi An Express. It was just my husband and I on the trip we travelled in rainy season... From start to finish it was exceptional. The tour guide was such a lovely and kind person as well as an excellent guide with so much knowledge to share with us. If you are interested in history and want to know more about Hue and the Vietnamese culture in general I encourage you to book this tour.
    There was a lot of food to try at do not leave hungry even though not all dishes are to the western taste..but a very good standard to tour food!

  • For a single day trip, this accomplishes a lot. The shuttle was on time to pick us up and stopped at Hai Van pass for a quick explanation and exploration. We then went to the the Thien Mu Pagoda, then took a boat along the river to walk to the Imperial City where we wandered around. I certainly could have spent more time in the Imperial city but this was a good abbreviated version. Lunch was a great introduction to local food note that drinks are not included in your tour cost!. As described you then the stop at the tomb briefly on the way back lots of steps!. Lots of culture and a friendly and knowledgeable guide for this tour. It's a long day and you're provided with one water bottle for the day- perhaps bring your own additional water, and I'd recommend having breakfast and a bathroom break before you leave. Highly recommended, good value for money.

  • The tour was good.
    The tour guide, the car, the driver was nice.
    It was worth visiting temple and palace in Hue.
    But the lunch was disappointing.
    The food was too sweet and too much.
    The food was not for eating but for photo.
    And it was too hot.
    You need parasol and towel.

  • It was a long drive from Da Nang but a very worthwhile trip. We started witth an impromptu visit to Marble Mtn before heading up to Hue. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and prepared to be flexible with our needs. The Citadel was amazing. The highlight was the Khai Dinh Royal tomb. Lunch in a good local restaurant was also a highlight with delicious local fare.
    All in all an informative and enjoyable day full of authentic Vietnamese history.

  • Many historical places that after a while it became quite boring but we enjoyed the lunch in a old historical family house.
