The tour of Hue included a drive through the countryside where we visited a seaside village and noted water buffalo en route. Our guide gave us an excellent description of the history of the area and added insights into the Vietnam War. We had a fantastic lunch and toured the Imperial Palace which was amazing. Our guide provided an excellent overview of the city and its history. The tour is not to be missed.

Leslie SchaeferUnited States
Thuan customized the tour for our group of 6 to show us the best of Hue at a reasonable pace. We had a wonderful lunch at the restaurant he chose for us and catered to dietary needs. We enjoyed Hoi An Village most of all and weere amazed by Marble Mountain. Our driver was excellent, and the vehicle was spacious and clean. Thuan's English was quite good. He had a great sense of humor and was sensitive to our needs.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Leslie for your excellent feedback about private tour with me to Hoian and Danang city. Please recommend my tours on TBL to your friends and relatives in the future Best Thuan P.
Kay FisherUnited States
Our recent tour to Hue, Vietnam with Thuan was one of the highlights of our trip to Asia! The two 21-year-olds with us said it was their favorite day, and they are still talking about Army Coffee! Thuan was an excellent guide, our air conditioned van was comfortable, and our driver was very accommodating. We really can't recommend Thuan's services with Tour by Locals highly enough. Thanks for making our day in Vietnam so memorable!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Kay for trusting and choosing mine via TBL. It's my pleasure to make your family excursion enjoyable and experienced, especially taste the Army Coffee. See your family next time Thuan

Fantastic tour with a truly professional guide. Thuan was punctual, extremely knowledgeable and shared accurate information on not just the places we visited but other aspects of Vietnam as well. This tour may not be the cheapest but everything, including lunch at a 5 star restaurant, is included in Thuan's price making it very worthwhile and superb value. My family had a really enjoyable and informative day and I have no hesitation recommending Thuan to other travelers. Thank you for a great day out!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much sir for your wonderful feedback about our private shore excursion today. I and my driver feel so lucky and pleased to have shown and made your family trip enjoyable and memorable. Have a nice journey and see your family next time Best regards Thuan P.
Randall PlostUnited States
11/25/16 - we just finished our tour with Thuan and what a fabulous day we had! Our group of 8 consisted of 6 adults and two kids 13 and 11. Thuan picked us up at the port and we toured all day in Hue, seeing the Citadel, riding the dragon boats, and much more! Thuan took us to a wonderful restaurant for lunch that was also able to provide my wife her gluten free options! Thuan's English is very good, and we highly recommend him for your tour of Hue.

Richard SiroisMontreal, QUEBEC, Canada
Thuan is very friendly and knowledgeable about all aspects of Hue live - the history, the culture, the food, essentially everything. You can tell that he loves what he does, and enjoys sharing his city. Thuan took us to some awesome places I am sure we would not have discovered on our own. It is without hesitation that we recommend Thuan as a tour guide for Hue.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Richard, once more thank you so much for using private shore excursion from mine. I am thrilled to know that you really enjoyed the excursion in Hue city. I look forward to welcoming you back Hue in the future Best regards Thuan

Teresa BoultonUnited States
Our guide, Thaun, was just great. He met us at the airport, showed us Hoi An city, was very knowledgeable about the history of his country. His English was excellent. He was flexible with our needs, and it was altogether a great day. The second day he was unable to be with us, but he arranged a replacement guide who was also excellent and took us to Hue. In the evening, Thaun met us for dinner in a local seafood restaurant where we would never have ventured on our own. Just a great experience!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tracy, Harry, Linda and Stephen, Honestly, I feel very lucky and honorable to meet you and your husband and friends here in Danang city. In deed we had such a great time together: walking tour in Hoian, short boat trip on Hoai river and excellent seafood for farewell time. All great! I also hope that Stephen did enjoy his time so much here where he was during 1965-1966 in Danang. Love to talk about his experiences about his time in Vietnam during the war. I look forward to welcoming you back-Thuan P.
Carol JonesUnited States
Thuan P. Did an excellent job. We followed the planned itinerary, kept on schedule, spoke clearly and provided us information without overwhelming us with information. We learned about Vietnam, about Hue and the local culture. The driver was good, van clean, restaurant provided good food and we returned to the dock with a comfortable margin of time before the boat left. Our party of 4 people would strongly endorse Thuan as a guide. A very enjoyable day in Hue.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for choosing my tour services and enjoying the tour. I am happy to know that you and your group of 4 people did like all excellent servies of mine: New Car, so good AC, Good restaurant that all make your group comfortable. One thing you forget to tell is I helped Stephen and another couple buy local sim card with so cheap price that connect to 3G then he can easily speak with mr Google :) Look forward to welcoming you back Vietnam again. I will be pleasant to be your private guide.
Eric WrightUnited States
Thuan provides a great tour! He picked us up from our hotel in Da Nang, and had a professional driver take us through the mountains to Hue City. We had coffee at the top of the mountain pass, fresh oysters by the lagoon, a wonderful tour of the Imperial City, delicious lunch at a local noodle shop, a dragon boat ride, and two tomb tours. Thuan was incredibly knowledgeable about the area and the history of his country. His English is very good, and he went above and beyond to show us a great time!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your time and your review about "Hue day trip tour", Eric. Honestly, you guys also have made me so happy and comfortable during our tour. It is my pleasure to meet and accompany with you and Tiffany. I also look forward to welcoming you, Tiffany and your friends to Vietnam. All the best to you. Thuan P.
John GaleUnited Kingdom
The tour was changed at the last moment due to the late arrival of our cruise ship. Thuan was very adaptable and changed the tour to Da Nang and Hoi An. Thuan and his driver were absolutely brilliant. Courteous, accommodating, knowledge and their English was impeccable. It was a fantastic tour and we even recommended Thuan and Tours by Locals to two travellers we met in Singapore. We did not want for anything, it was brilliant.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mr Gale for your EXCELLENT REVIEW about the tour to Hoian plus Danang city on 1st April. I am so happy to know that you and your wife have enjoyed the tour. I look forward to welcoming you and your friends back Hue, Danang, Hoian city in the future. Thuan P. on Toursbylocals

Thuan provided us with an excellent overview of our day in Danang. He was very confident in changing our itineray to suit us. His knowledge and love for his country was so very obvious, and was evident in our tour. Very easy to talk to, and always ready with intelligent answers to our questions. We loved all the places that he took us to and enjoyed our time with him immensely.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for using my tours services and writting the feedback about the shore excursion tour. As I said the tour should be flexible in order to bring the best time and feeling for you. I am very happy to know that you and your wife have enjoyed the tour. I hope that I will have more chance to serve you and your friends next time. Thuan
Judy B.United States
Thuan was a good guide, but we had several issues: With his fee, he did not make it clear that we had to pay an additional $98 for the van and he notified us a little before we left that we had to pay an extra $25 per person for port fees. Also one row of seats in the van was broken. Two of the guests had a very uncomfortable trip. Lastly, I got food poisoning from the restaurant he took us to. As a result, I had to miss our excursion to Hanoi the following day!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your feedback.For several issues that you had: Additional $98 for van is written at "whats excluded" in the booking. To avoid another misunderstanding may happen, I am consolidating this fee in the booking price. I also will use a different company for transportation to make sure that the long trip will be more comfortable and relaxable. The food poisoning, there's no way to determine although the restaurant is so famous. For all, I will improve more.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: The issues were brought up to Thuan's guide support manager who got in touch with him and after reviewing the tour and the tour confirmation we couldn't help noticing that all the local fees were already in that tour page and couldn't be made any clearer in the tour description. As per the broken seat, Thuan apologized and advised us he will be more careful when picking his vehicle providers and also to make sure the vehicles are in mint condition before the tour.

Ronald KolkerTucson, ARIZONA, United States
Dinh Thuan was terrific. He was very well informed and showed us Hue in a manner that gave us a good understanding of the city and its history. He also discussed Vietnam, its people, and way of life. I would recommend him to anyone visiting the city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr Ronald Kolker, I feel so happy to know that you and your group enjoying the tour. I love my city, Hue city. Organizing and showing tourist about Hue ancient city by the way of local people do is what I want to do. Thanks for your comment. It will be like a big motivation for me to do my tour better.
