Great tours to both Hoi An and Hue. Dropped one star as late departure by 35 minutes and we were the ones to make the enquiry where our guide was.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alan, Thank you so much for your feedback about the tour to both Hoi An and Da Nang. I am Tue P. - guide in Nha Trang. And I believe that I wasn't late to meet you for the tour. You may confuse me with the other guide. Best regards, Tue P.
Prasanna MalaviyaUnited States
Tue (aka Max) was absolutely awesome! He arrived on time, fully understood our group's dietary restrictions, and did a great job of showing us the highlights of Nha Trang over a 5 hr period. He was quick to make adjustments and customizations based on our requests and found us special places to eat. We would highly recommend without any hesitation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Prasanna, Thank you so much for the great comment. It"s raining now and many days before yesterday. You made a right decision. It was a beautiful day yesterday, good weather. I really enjoyed guiding your family, showing you our city. Your family is wonderful. I have a good day with you all. Best wishes, Tue P.
Thank you for bringing us around Nha Trang! The thing I liked the most was he brought us to the popular tourist sites and others that are not frequented by tourists. He is very flexible as we had to change our schedule because the ship changed schedule last minute. The transportation he arranged for us was spacious and comfortable. We were 8 in the group. Thank you thank you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alvin, Thank you for spending time with me in Nha Trang. I hope to meet you someday in Nha Trang again. All the best, Tue P.
Steve MagidsonUnited States
We had a wonderful tour of Nha Trang today with, Tue. He took us to more sites than we had expected, certainly more than any of the cruise ship excursions. We saw every facet of Nha Trang. Tue was knowledgeable, friendly, and very accommodating. He is a wonderful guide. The only issue we had was that since we expanded the tour to 4 people at the last minute , the vehicle was smaller than we would have liked (but the other larger vehicle was out of commission).
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Steve, Thank you so much for your comment. I really enjoyed to guide you in our local region. And I am so happy when you enjoy the trip with us. Normally I arrange a minibus which is bigger vehicle than the 7 seat car today. It's a little small for 4 people. Sorry for the inconvenience. It will make me to improve my service for the future customers. Thank you so much. Best wishes to you all, Tue P.
Brandon WeaverUnited States
Tue was an excellent tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about Nha Trang and the tour was a great experience all around. I was with my dad, who has some mobility limitations, and Tue was mindful of it and did everything he could to make sure that we both had a great time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Brandon, Thank you so much for your feedback. Your dad and you are so kind & friendly. I enjoyed to guide you in our local region. Hope to see you another time. Best regards, Tue P.
Alice EttingerUnited States
We had a wonderful day walking through the city. We went to all of the different areas, including garden paths, China Town, beautiful views of the water and city. Our guide was very knowledgeable and well-spoken. Tue was particularly aware of my minimal physical limitations and we were able to navigate very well and saw everything included in our tour at our own particular pace. We enjoyed everything.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alice, Thank you so much for your feedback. It's my pleasure to guide you in our local region. You are easy, nice and kind persons. Best wishes to you all, Tue P.
We really enjoyed our day with Tue in Nha Trang. He did a great job and was very flexible when we decided to snorkel only half day. We saw the highlights of Nha Trang instead and had a very good lunch (fresh spring rolls) Thank you, Tue!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It's my pleasure to guide you in our local region. Thank you so much

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much!

Would highly recommend Tue and this company you won't be disappointed AAAA+++++
Elizabeth JatczakUnited States
Tue picked us up in an air conditioned van and took us to amazing places! We visited a temple, a wet market, and saw how rice paper was made in a ladies house. Went to see a 90 year old women make a conical hat, which we purchased! Had tea and a fantastic Pho lunch. Shopped at the market for treasures. Wonderful day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Eric, Thank you so much for your rating. It's nice to meet your family and friend in our tour. Best wishes, Tue P.
We really enjoyed the tour with Tue! He did a great job in showing us his Vietnam on a very personal way. We can highly recommend this tour, if you are looking for local stuff from a different point of view! He really showed us the highlights of his Nha Trang! Thanky you, Tue!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sascha, Thank you for your excellent rating. It's nice to meet and guide your family. All the best, Tue P.
Tue is a cheerful fellow who knows his trade. Having been to Natrang before we did not want to follow the beaten track. So Tue took us to a delightful fishing village were women were preparing the last of previous night catch including recovering all kind of remnants of prawns, small fish,etc as food for fish farms further out at sea. Nothing was wasted. Tue had some other plans but with temperatures of 39degrees in the shade, we called it a day. Tue was disappointed but he suffered from the heat too
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lily & Brundt, It's my pleasure to guide you in our local area. You are very kind and friendly. I hope to meet you another day and then I'll share a beer with you. Best regards, Tue P.
We spent one day with Tue and because of his historical knowledge, his personality and his enthusiasm we really had a fantastic tour in Nha Trang. We had a very nice van and driver provided by him. We would highly recommend this tour for visitors to Nha Trang. Thanks a lot !!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Karin, Thank you so much for your great comment. I did enjoy to guide you and your friends. You all are very nice & friendly. I wish you all are in good health. Best regards, Tue P.
Our private tour over 3 days covered most of the places of interest of NhaTrang on the mainland, but could have been covered in 2 days. We didn't do beach or sea-related tours. Food in restaurants were generally good but more expensive. Street food was value for money and tasty, but hygiene very wanting. Shopping malls were not great. Only mall worth a mention was NhaTrang Centre. As for local products and handicrafts, we found that there was a great disparity in price depending on where purchased.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Aishah and your party, I greatly appreciate your frank comment. It's good for me to improve myself to meet the next customers. Actually, I have a good time with you - the first customers in Lunar New Year. You are very friendly, nice, easy and kind to us. It's my pleasure to be your guide in our local area. Thank you for spending time with us. Tue P.

Wendy HarrisonNew Zealand
Thoroughly enjoyed our tour with friendly and informative guide Tue. Saw many interesting places and learned a lot about the locals way of life and the culture. Were returned to port in plenty of time for our cruise departure
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much!
Charles TillotsonUnited States
Tue was an excellent guide. This tour was unique in that we didn't just tour the city, but saw true local culture: A fishing facility; conical hat-making; mat weaving; and making of rice paper. We had tea in the courtyard of an old Vietnamese house and made the trek up to see the Buddha at the top of hill from the Long Son Pagoda. Tue obviously loves his city; it came through his running commentary throughout the day. A different kind of tour but first-class all the way!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Charles, Thank you for your great comment. It's my pleasure to guide you in our local region. I hope to meet and guide you several times in Nha Trang. Best wishes, Tue P.
Rochelle GuessUnited States
The tour was wonderful. Our guide Tue was very knowledgeable and very accommodating to the time we wanted to spend at each site. Would highly recommend Tue if travelling to Nha Trang.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind comment. Best wishes, Tue P.
I highly recommend this tour with the Fantastic Tue. We decided start the tour early at 5am. I was picked up from my hotel by Tue and our driver and we headed out to see what the locals do as their morning routine. He's such a great tour guide and you easily become good mates. The day is flexible and up to you how long you want to stay at certain places. Air conditioned comfort for those that aren't used to the heat ! Tue grew up in this city and has that great local knowledge. Ask him anything.. Hes #1
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Natalie , it's my enjoyable day for guiding you. Best wisshes !
Abigail ClarkUnited States
Great tour! Took us to multiple interesting locations. We had three kids with us and they were acting a little crazy for the first half of the tour. Tue did a great job with the whole group of us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Abigail Clark, Thank you so much for your rating. Many thanks for spending a trip with us. It's my pleasure to guide you in our country. Best regards, Tue P.
Four of us had a great day. Tue was very enthusiastic and spoke English quite well. We covered a lot of ground but were never rushed. A major advantage of the tour was that there were only 4 of us plus Tue and the driver. We were able to visit each venue while avoiding the crowds from our cruise ship as well as many other tourists. We were back to the ship in good time with no concerns about being late. I would highly recommend this tour for visitors to Nha Trang.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comment. I also had a great day with you too. Your group is so nice and kind. I also like the Canadian English that you taught. I hope to see you next time. Best wishes to you all, Tue P.
Tue is an excellent and knowledgeable tour guide. I learned a lot from him, especially about the Vietnam's culture and traditions. He was also flexible and was on time. I was able to add more places to visit and I'm very satisfied of my customized plan. Even though it was really hot in Nha Trang during our tour, Tue still managed to keep the tour exciting and showed me the area he grew up in with pride. I truly recommend touring with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Allison, Thank you very much for your kind comment. It's nice to meet & guide you in Nhatrang. I hope that you'll be back here in another day to enjoy Nhatrang climate in another season. All the best, Tue P.

Susan BegynUnited States
Tue did a wonderful job with our tour. We had booked to snorkel, but Tue was kind enough to let us know that the water was cool and cloudy from so much rain, so we switched to a city and country tour instead. The tour was wonderful. He took us to the regular tourist sites as well as thru the area outside of Nha Trang to the fish market, homes where rice paper was being made, weaving and other arts...then to a wonderful lunch with Spring Rolls. He is gets a 5 stars plus! We will be return customers!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan, Thank you so much for your great comment. You're very kind and friendly group. I've a unforgetable time with you. I'll make a snorkeling trip for you next time. It is my pleasure! Best wishes to you all. Tue P.
Robert KearnsSpring Mills, PA/ 16875, United States
Tue met us promptly and showed us a great time on his tour. We met locals making hats, rice paper and weaving mats. Enjoyed a cruise on the river and some fresh bread. I highly recommend a day on his tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robert, Thank you so much for your comment. I love to show you and all of my customers who have a change to visit our beautiful local area. I feel so happy when you do enjoy my tour. You're nice family. I hope to see you later. With love, Tue P.

Mylene KhooHong Kong
Tue was a great guide, promptly email responsie !! Very trust worthy . We disembarked early, I emailed him last minute to see if he can meet us earlier, and he did, he made it soonest he can. We requested for local lunch but the place we were brought to was not what I wanted, he immediately took us to another spot. He kept very calm and w a smile. Tour wise, very informative, time control good, driver excellent. We also shared a durian. I am from Hong Kong, we had a good time and will be back.

Tue was very friendly and very knowledgeable of his job. For a brief period, he showed the typical life and culture of the Vietnamese people. Our day in Nha Trang was very well spent with Tue. I would definitely recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lita. Thank you very much for your kind comment. Thank you for spending your previous time with me. It was fun, interesting to guide you. Best wishes to you and your group.
Kathleen MoonUnited States
Touring with Tue was a most unique experience for our group of 7. We went back into the countryside down small roads and alleys to find rice paper makers, ladies home where they sat and made cone hats and mat weavers. We really saw Vietnam, not through the window of a bus, but with the people. Tue provided us with an unforgettable day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comment. It's my pleasure to be your guide and I have a unforgettable day with you too. I wish to see you all in our country again. Best wishes!
Francine Ricki HorwitzUnited States
Tue was a wonderful tour guide. We really enjoyed the day that we spent with him.He was very knowledgeable about the area and we went to visit some amazing sights.

John OMalleyUnited States
I cannot say enough positive things about our guide Tue. He was knowledgeable, kind, and flexible. It was a joy to spend time with him and I learned so much about the area and its people. At times we would just sit and talk which is where I really gained insight and information about the Vietnamese culture. He was open and accepting. I would highly recommend touring with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your great comment. It's a joy to spend time with you too. Hope to see you in another time in Nha Trang. Best wishes to you and family.
Lovely day! We did this tour about shore excursion from a cruise highly recommended way of beating the crowds learning more about Vietnam and feeling like we had Amore intimate experience highly recommended particularly for cruisers
Robert QuistSalt Lake City, UTAH, United States
Tue spoke excellent English as he introduced us to Nha Trang. He not only guided us to the sights, but also he educated us on the daily life in Vietnam. Having not heard of Nha Trang prior to our visit, the city turned out to be our favorite during our month long visit to South East Asia. It has a perfect beach (better than Hawaii) a historical city center and farms, all surrounded by dramatic mountains. Tue is knowledgeable, friendly, and sensitive. I recommend him without reservation.
Stephen P.Washington, DC, United States
Tue is rightfully proud of his home town, Nha Trang. He is articulate, knowledgeable, and professional. He is also completely flexible with the itinerary. Tue provides in-depth details about local sights and culture. I recommend his services unconditionally.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Stephen! Thank you so much for your great comment. Best wishes to you all. Hope to see you both in my proud city again. Best regards !
KaliAnn BreestUnited States
Tue was a very friendly guide. He made sure we knew that we were in charge of the tour and he was flexible in where he took us. When he took us to local handicraft areas there was NO pressure to buy anything which was wonderful. The biggest plus, we brought our 2 year old son and he was very patient in making sure he got everything he needed. Thanks!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your great comment. Best wishes to you in this Christmas season and forever.
Joseph LessmanUnited States
This was an excellent tour. The guide was on time, very knowledgeable and had a great personality. 5 stars.
Peter AdamsStourbridge, WEST MIDS, United Kingdom
Tue was brilliant - we saw the real Vietnam in the villages where I doubt if any of the ship's tour could have got to. The art of conical hat making by the great grandmother and the grandmother, while the young child played in the background with the machete used to cut the stalks used for the hats was unforgettable. The making of rice paper and wicker mats to the lunch in the paddy fields - Tue and the driver were excellent and made the day memorable.
Lee I.United States
Very knowledgeable about the area and fun to be with. English is very good. Highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comment. Thank you for joining the trip with me in your precious time. I wish you all have good health and happiness. Hope to see you again.
Elliott HeimanUnited States
Tue designed a creative tour which showed us how some Vietnamese make a living. Of special interest were the fishing docks, the rice-paper makers and our visit to the home of a family who made conical hats. He was eager to please and we are happy to recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comment. You are very nice customers. I wish you all always have the good health. Hope to see you again. Thank you.

Meeting the local people making rice paddies ,locals making straws hats and mats and much ,much more of Nha Trang.
