Hue Highlights Tour
Hue known as the capital city of Vietnam where Nguyen dynasty ruled from 1802 - 1945. Hue owes its charm partly to its location on the Perfume River - picturesque on a clear day, atmospheric even in less flattering weather. This location is also the destination of palaces, pagodas, tombs and temples, culture and cuisine, history and heartbreak - there's no shortage of poetic pairings to describe Hue (pronounced 'hway') which were recognized by Unesco World Heritage site.
This private shore excursion gives you an opportunity to explore not only the Imperial citadel of Hue, Thien Mu Pagoda and perfume river, but also the real life of local people which is off the beaten track in rural village.

Our day with David was rich and complete. The long drive to Hue seemed short as he had us stopping at unique photo shots along the way. A sleepy fishing village was a complete surprise! He interpreted the history of the former capital to us with clarity. What unique experiences we had during the day, including tea on a dragon boat on the Perfume river for just the two of us. We loved the local restaurants we ate at. "Foodies" will love his choices. He perfectly captured our day with lots of photos of us.
