What people are saying about South Central Coast

You need yo take these tours! I can't stress enough how great this service was. My husband and I were in Da Nang for a couple of days during Tet, and they were so kind to take us on a tour to Marble Mountains, The Lady Buda and An Phu Cave. Communication was great from the very start, we could arrange everything online and by a phone call. Our guides were so nice and experienced people, they picked us up at our hotel early in the morning and took us on their bikes, it was so fun. We stopped on the road to take some pictures while they were explaining us about the places we would visit, then they took us to many hidden little paths so we could reach points with gorgeous views, and God they are fit people, the tour demands some energy from your body since you'll be walking and doing some climbing as well, but it's all worth it, you get to see incredible sculptures in dramatic caves, impressive landscapes... while learning a lot about a fascinating culture. Highly recommend this tour!

Amazing tour run by a local family with great levels of English, the husband has great levels of the local markets and area and is extremely helpful whilst the wife gives an excellent cooking class with delicious and tasty dishes. The basket boat is also extremely enjoyable and fun! Pick this tour if you would like to support friendly locals and have a great day
