We would definitely book again. Hoa is very experienced and knows a lot about the places we visited. He gave us a great insight into Vietnamese history and culture. Everything was perfect. The tour is highly recommendable and worth all the money. Try on your own.

Hoa was a knowledgeable, enthusiastic guide! I booked this tour for my college-age daughter and her friends. During the tour, Hoa sent me wonderful photos and videos of the girls enjoying the sights in the Hoi area. They especially enjoyed riding in the basket boats, and learning to cook traditional Vietnamese food. They appreciated that Hoa ate lunch with them and talked with them. He gave them excellent advice on where to get custom-made tailored clothing. We would recommend Hoa to everyone!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind and lovely review! I wish all the best for you and your family members!

Hoa is a great guide, excellent English. Took us to 2 places we requested to try local cuisine in Hue--both delicious! The historical sites in Hue were interesting, however, my family found the Perfume river cruise to be a bit boring and didn't add much to the tour. We didn't really know this or we would have asked him to skip this portion, which I'm sure he would have happily accommodated. Also felt uncomfortable by the woman trying to sell souvenirs on the boat. Aside from that, this Hue tour is great!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ms. Christine Tran, Thank you for your valued feedback! I wish you and your family are always in great health and all the best for you! I hope to see your family again in the near future as my family members! Yours Hoa./.

Hoa surpassed our expectations with his warmth and enthusiasm. He was caring and fun and made us feel right at home. You will be lucky if you can get him because he tends to fill up his bookings far in advance. The vehicle he provided was excellent and the driver was very safe. Hoa is an excellent photographer and can help you get some amazing pictures.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Paul Updike, Thank you so much for your nice and kind words! Your family was so friendly and kind so I feel very comfortable to do tours for you guys! I wish you are always in great health and wish all the best for your family! Happy new year 2020! Yours Mr. Hoa./.
We just came back from a full day tour with Hoa. We are digesting all the information and beautiful sights he took us to. We are a family of 5 with three children 5, 8 and 9 and he tailor made a perfect trip for all of us. Thanks Hoa!
Hoa was excellent

Best tour of Danang, Hoi An and My Son! Hoa is a fantastic guide and host who speaks exceptional English, answered our questions about Vietnam and shared interesting historical and cultural stories. We visited Monkey Mountain and Marble Mountain in the morning, lunch in Hoi An, My Son Sanctuary, and back to Hoi An for shopping and seeing the city at night. Hoa took care of my mom who had injured her knee and made sure she enjoyed the tour. Hoa is a great photographer. Flexible, fun, great for whole family

Hoa was great. He was flexible when we worked with him to plan the tour. Hoa was easy to speak with during the tour and has a lot of information. He loves to take pictures of the group, as he is a photographer. We would definitely recommend Hoa for any tour within Vietnam.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Paul Thank you so much for your kind and lovely review! Best wishes for you guys! Love you so much! Yours Mr. Hoa
This tour with Hoa was outstanding! It was definitely a highlight of our family's trip to Da Nang/Hoi An. Hoa provided a great experience & we did it ALL: a tour through Hoi An old town w/ a show & lantern making, a boat ride in the water coconut forest w/ a cooking class & foot massage, & then an **amazing** guided trip to the marble mountains (beautiful). Hoa was incredibly helpful, informative, & accommodating - the trip was a great time for us & all of our kids (ages 5, 9, 13). We highly recommend it!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Andy's family, Nothing is more valuable and great than this feedback from you and your family! straight from my heart, I just can say THANK YOU SO MUCH for doing the wonderful TOUR with me!

This was our second day with Hoa and he flexed the itinerary of the tour to suit us. We explored a beautiful lagoon, the Ocean Cloud Pass, Marble Mountains and the 72m giant Lady Budhha that looks out over Da Nang. As on the previous tour Hoa was a guide of the first order, informative, flexible and friendly throughout. A 'Cham' inspired lunch was another highlight. Hoa is a 'black belt' photographer and he has taken all the best photo's of our trip. I can't recommend Hoa's tours enough.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Simon! Thank you so much for your nice words. Your family was so easygoing and friendly and we really respect the way you talk, you react to us and the local people here! Thank you again for choosing us and hope you and your family members always in a good health! Yours Mr. Hoa.
Simon MortimerUnited Kingdom
A superb guide and a superb tour. There is so much to see in Hue, Hoa's tour picks out the 'must see' highlights and his extensive knowledge and gift for communication brings the history to life. The Citadel and Royal Palace are on a par with some of the great historical sites in the world, the buildings being painstakingly rebuilt and restored to their original glory. The organisation of the tour was seem less from boat ride to walking tour to A/C car. A fantastic lunch too. You will not be disappointed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Simon! Great humanbeing! We had great time with your family! Keep in touch! Yours Mr. Hoa.
Hao made the Marble Mountains and Hoi An tour a memorable one. There was a lovely variety of things to do for a one day tour. Hao conducted the tour at my pace, explained things well and was so generous in taking amazing photos for me. Definitely recommend tour with Hoa.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sunita, Thank you for your lovely rating! I am so happy to see you happy with our services! I work with heart and it would come to your heart! I hope you are always in a great health! Sunita, we all love you and we hope you would come back and would do tours with us! Viet Nam always welcomes great human being like you! Yours Mr. Hoa.
Mr Hoa is a one of a kind travel guide. He listened to what we wanted to do and then created a flexible customised tour for us. From the moment he greeted us he was engaging, interesting, knowledgeable and considerate. He navigated the chaos of Hoi An, My Son and the Marble Mountains so all we had to do was enjoy. He's also an expert photographer and we loved the food tour. We highly recommend Mr Hoa.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Doreen, Thank you for your lovely rating! Hope you are always in a great health! All the best! Henry would love to say thank you to you and your husband as well! Thank you again and keep in touch! Love you guys! Yours Mr. Hoa.
John FerroUnited States
An amazing day! We loved Hoa. He was so passionate about service and making sure that we had a perfect day. We loved the lagoon area where you could buy local pearls. He then took us to the Marble Mountains, which was our favorite place we visited in all of Vietnam. Finally, the cooking glass was excellent. We not only had a lot of fun and learned a lot, but the food was delicious. We would highly recommend Hoa for anyone visiting the Da Nang area. A fantastic guide who became a friend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr John! Thank you for your lovely review! Hope you and your family are always in a great health! Keep in touch and hope to see you and your family in the near future! Lot of loves, Mr. Hoa.
The guide was very friendly and competent. He really takes care of the guest and tries to do his best to provide an amazing experience. He has good English and is an excellent photographer. The visit to Golden Bridge with Hoa make my trip exceed my expectations. Too bad it rained a lot, but unfortunately, Hoa has not to control about the unpredictable weather in the bridge ah ah ah. Many thanks for your attention and excellent service.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your excellent feedback! It is very kind of you and it was a big honour for me to do tour for a kind professor! Hope you are always in a good health! ��I appreciate it your time for this feedback!
Great Guide, punctual, good English, and has a lot of knowledge of the area and the sites. We had a small issue on our trip which was out of everyone's control, and Hoa made some quick changes to our itinerary and was able to provide us with an excellent day. I would recommend Hoa as a guide in the DaNang / Hoi An region. Thanks! Erik L.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Erik, Thank you for your excellent review! Yes. It got sorted out! I really appreciate it your time and your kindness! Hope you are always in a great health! I love you guys and hope we can do tours together in the future!
Hoa was a fantastic guide; he was informative and energetic. He customized the tour for our needs. My 9 and 12 year olds said it was the best tour we've been on! We highly recommend Hoa. He's also a great photographer and knows where the best shots are. He loves what he does, and it shows!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs Tracy, Thank you for your lovely review and i wish all the best for your family!
Simone SpiegelUnited States
We had a wonderful 8 hour tour with Hoa and highly recommend him! Hoa helped us customize a tour that took in many signs (Marble Mountain, Hoi An, theater production, cooking class, foot massage, etc, etc.). He is very knowledgeable about the region and our visit to Da Nang was memorable. Hoa took us to a beautiful marble and jade factory where we purchased lovely items, we went to see the silk worms, we walked the streets of Hoi An and enjoyed the lanterns and beautiful buildings. An excellent tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Simone, Thank you for your great review on Toursbylocals! I am very happy when you got a wonderful time with me and Toursbylocals. I think " what comes from the heart goes to the heart!" I love you guys and i wish all the best for you! Lot of love! Mr. Hoa./.

Our group of 4 had a fantastic tour with Hoa. We rowed the basket boats on the river, cooked a delicious lunch with a local family and even got soothing foot massages. Afterwards, we walked the charming ancient city of Hoi An with its colorful streets and lanterns. Hoa made sure that we saw the highlights but also off the beaten path as well. We finished our evening with some terrific banh mi and my quang. I would highly recommend Hoa as a tour guide, he is flexible, knowledgeable and friendly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your lovely review! Keep in touch and wish all the best for you guys! It was really great to do tour for you guys! A lot of love! Mr. Hoa
