This tour with Thuan was excellent. From the outset, Thuan was flexible about how we spent our time at the various sights on the tour; even modifying the schedule so that was could maximize our time in certain locations. The sights were phenomenal and Thuan gave a very detailed history of each location. It was quite literally like traveling with an old friend. I couldn't recommend this tour more highly. Thuan is a master guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for trusting my tours via TBL and giving the excellent feedback about our Private Shore Excursion to Hoian Danang on 18 March 18. Really appreciate your kind support for mine. All the best to you and see you next time. Thuan P.

Thuan made Da Nang and Hoian come alive for our party of 6. We saw so much compared to other people on our cruise. Everything, from the Lady buddha statue, to the walking tour of Hoian, to the boat ride, surpassed our expectations. He was very considerate of the physical limitations of some of our group, and we really appreciated his knowledge of the area and of Vietnam generally, both historical and current. We had a full day, packed with interesting experiences. A wonderful tour. Thank you so much!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Sally for your wonderful reviews about our private tour via TBl You are right - Take Private Excursion from TBl is so much better from Cruise ship group tour. You will get so much knowledge and experience about local Best regards and see you next time Thuan P. from TBL

We had Thuan for 2 days so that we could see both Danang & Hue. He is a very good guide ( with a good driver). I had communicated with him after scheduling our trip, so that he knew what we wanted to see plus anything he thought we would like. He did a great job and was fun. I would definitely use him again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Really appreciate your support for my services on TBL.
Thuan was a true delight and his driver Wi was awesome. Never once were we kept waiting and I don't think Wi used his horn once, and that is a definite plus in Vietnam I have discovered. Thuan suggested. All sorts of delightful thinks to do and see, was flexible and knowledgeable about everything we asked. Definitely recommend Thuan to anyone, kind and considerate to our needs all day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Gaylene for your wonderful feedback and truth in my tour service via TBL. It's so nice to meet you and Peter in Danang and show you about my hometown. Thuan P.
Eddie BridgesUnited States
Thuan and his driver were great. The problem is the price. I had a coupon for 50% off, but it was not honored. This made the tour twice as expensive as the others I booked. I was told the quality made it worth it. Out of time, I booked anyway. While driver and guide are nice and professional, the quality of the tour was not any better than the others I experienced on my Asian trip. Out of my nine booked tours, Thuan was almost double the price but, his quality was no better than the others.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: - I really appreciate when you say that - I and the driver were great! I, however, don't understand why the price is a problem when you exactly knew the price when booking.I didn't have any hidden costs. Thank you for the feedback.
Peter(Thuan)met us at the cruise ship docked near Danang. He provided us with exceptional service, insider knowledge, and fun service. My husband and I have been to Central Vietnam before, but were with "rookie Friends". Peter customized our tour to provide us all with a fabulous time. The tour was arranged very professionally, but Peter adapted to the level that we wanted-that was to see his country from a local perspective and enjoy the local cuisine. The food was fabulous! Thanks so much for our tours
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Lyn for your beautiful feedback about our private Shore Excursion via TBL to Hoian plus Danang and Hue for two different private trips. I really appreciate your feedback Thuan
Thuan was very informative about many things, which gave us the feeling we could ask him anything. He is very well capable of sharing information as if he was some kind of a teacher, which made subjects very understandable. We felt very comfortable in his presence and had the feeling that there was suffiecient time for the highlights.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback on TBL about our private Shore Excursion to Hoian and Danang on 14 Nov 17. I really appreciate your wonderful support! See you next time in Việt Nam! Best regards Thuan P.

When we first wrote to Thuan to discuss our ambitious day-trip from Chan May Port to areas around Da Nang, he was quick to reply, and honest to give us the exact time needed to travel between each point of interest. As a result, a more realistic and relaxing trip was planned and 90% executed. He is polite and fluent in English. He highlighted the points of interest and history at each site. He took much care to assist us to cross the busy roads. He helped us to buy souvenirs. A professional tour guide

Carl MarionUnited States
We took many tours in Asia, but our all day private tour with Thaun (Peter) was beyond exceptional. We explored places that we would never have discovered on our own. We went to a lagoon where they harvested pearls and oysters and we sipped on the best coffee we have ever had. We ventured off to HoiAn to explore the old and new city, took a short boat ride, and had lunch in a local restaurant. Peter's perfect English, warm personality and humor was delightful. Ten Star tour! Best Ever!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Dr Carl Marion for your WONDERFUL FEEDBACK about our shore excursion to Hoian and Danang city. I and Huy feel so happy to take you and Sandy to the off beaten path that Bus Tour never able to visit.

Thank you again for kindly letting me know that both of you ENJOYED the trip so much with me and Huy. All the best to you and take good care of both See you next time and pls contact me
W. Michael HammerUnited States
This was an incredible tour with one of the best tour guides we have EVER used! We added the Temple of My Son to the basic trip. It meant we were on a tight time schedule to get from the ship to 3 different locations and back on time. We never felt rushed. Thuan was an amazing guide with a professional presentation & an amazing depth of knowledge. He had his Ipad loaded with pictures of every place we saw, which gave us an even greater understanding of what he was telling us and we were seeing.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Madam for your wonderful feedback about our private tour from Crusie Ship. I and my driver feel so happy to know that four of you really enjoyed the private excursion to Myson and Hoian old town. All the best wishes to you and your family See you next time Thuan P.

Thuan is a delightful young man who is enthusiastic, punctual, organized, knowledgeable, and caring. By the end of the tour he was calling me Mom and my sister, Grandma. We would recommend him highly for your tour of Da Nang and HoiAn. It will be a wonderful day with Thuan.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback

Aaron HowardUnited States
Thuan did a good job of getting us to all the locations we wanted to visit on a shore excursion from the remote port near Da Nang. We toured Da Nang, visited Hoi An, and even managed to have lunch on China Beach, and purchase a gigantic marble Buddha at a miraculous price. It was a fun day, and we were pleased with our experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for using my services and dropped a great review about the trip! Thank you and best regards Thuan P.

Michael BarnettUnited Kingdom
We had a really enjoyable tour with Thuan & Hai our driver. It was a flexible day to allow for photo stops and a few diversions to see different things as we spoke. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Thuan to anybody thinking about a tour in this part of the world, his English is very good, the car was clean and new and nothing was too much trouble. If you do his tour get him to take you across the Hai Van pass late afternoon - with the cloud settled below you it is truly breathtaking.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your great feedback Mike. Love to be your private local guide from Cruise Ship at Chan May port. I feel quite happy to know that you and your wife did enjoy my services and all sights including the tour. I look forward to welcoming you back Vietnam in the future. Thuan P.
Cassie LuckoffUnited States
Thuan was a great guide for us in Danang-Hoi An-My Son! He met us promptly at the cruise dock and we enjoyed his company for two full days. His English is excellent, he is very well versed in history and culture and is very open about talking about the war and his family. He took us to a very locals-locals restaurant for the best pho and was very flexible when we adjusted our second day, adding a boat ride on the river to fill some time before a ship-sponsored evening event in Hoi An. We highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for choosing my services Ma'am Cassie. Love to be your local expert and shares a lot of knowledges about everything with you and your handsome husband :). I look forward to receiving / welcoming more your friend to Danang, Hue. All the best to your family Kindest regards Thuan
Annmarie D'AmourUnited States
Thuan was a great tour guide, speaks English well and is very knowledgeable and prepared - he has historical photos on his ipad that were wonderful for showing some of the changes that have taken place in DaNang. He was very accommodating - a few days after this tour, he arranged another tour for me on few hours notice to My Son and on to my next stop in Hue. Thanks for everything, Thuan
Pamela A.United States
Our tour with Thuan far exceeded our expectations. It was not surprising to learn that Thuan is a former teacher, as his knowledge of the history and culture of Vietnam is extensive and he shared it in such a clear fashion. The tour he designed for us included a visit with a local Vietnamese family - an unexpected treat that provided an added layer of depth to our day. Topping it off, Thuan's excellent English, endearing personality and sense of humour made the entire experience one we will not forget!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your support, your valuable time, and your review. I really appreciate it. The review what you have just written is great to me. Honestly, the tour with you and your lovely family is one of my favorite tour so far. I am so lucky to meet your family to share Vietnamese history, culture and esp Vietnam war with your HUSBAND. That was a great discuss. Hope that we will meet again in near future. Thuan P.
Harry B.United States
Thuan was an excellent tour guide. His English is good and is easily understandable. He met us at Chan May Port and toured us all the way to Hoian & Danang. He is a wealth of information and knowledgable of VN history. Most notable was our lunch in local resturant in Hoian. I'd recommend Thuan to anyone touring the Hue/Danang area. Harry
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Harry, I would like to say thanks to your for review about the tour to Danang and Hoian ancient city. Its so wonderful to know that you and your family did enjoy the tour and Hoian local foods. I look forward to meeting your family in the future. Thuan P.

Dinh Thuan did an excellent job and we truly enjoyed our visit to beautiful Hoi An. He was extremely knowledgable and expecially helpful, since on of our group needed to replace some broken eyeglasses. Thuan found a reliable optical shop and our friend had a new frame with new corrective lenses in less than 2 hours. Thuan is a very courteous and charming young man and we highly recommend him. Our vehicle and driver were excellent, also. Eleanor and Pablo Siegal, San Antonio, Texas
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for having taken the time to submit a review about the tour booked at Toursbylocals.com.

Mark BentleyUnited States
Thuan was an excellent tour guide for us in Vietnam. He gave us a great guided tour of Hue City and even booked us a special lunch at a local restaurant with many different courses of Vietnamese food. The vehicle was cool and clean. The driver was careful and efficient in getting around the buzzing traffic on the highways and in the city. Thuan varied the tour to target things we did and did not want to see and was easy to understand. He made our trip to Vietnam an excellent memory. Pat Bentley
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Pat for your time to write the review about the tour done in Hoian ancient city. I am so happy to know you, your husband and your friends did enjoy the tour in Danang and Hoian old city. Looking forward to welcoming back Danang, Hoian. Hue city in near future. All the best to your family. Thuan P.
