What people are saying about South Central Coast

Very interesting tour - good shoes are recommended. We were the oldest in the international group and preferred the lift and skipped the ascent to Heaven Gate - with 50+ you don't have to do everything anymore - was no problem for the guide.

Great trip around a Marble Mountain. Would have appreciated more time there , which could have been done if we hadn’t stopped at a marble shopping centre on the way to this attraction.

Ngoc, our tour guide was excellent. She took us through the marble mountain attractions and even bargained for lower prices on marble ornaments for us.

Eric, our guide, is amazing! Highly recomend him as well as the tour. Such a lovely visit, lots of cool information

Very nice visit, hallucinating marble sculptures, majestic caves with serene Buddhas in a magnificent setting.
