Our trip to My Son was fabulous! We enjoyed every moment. Our guide Quyea was amazing! She was very knowledgeable about the site and surroundings and was happy and willing to answer all our questions about life in Vietnam as well! She had a wonderful sense of humour and insured all of our needs were met. It was a small group, and very well organized tour.

Ling, our guide was friendly, knowledgeable and had good sense of humour. As it was rainy season, the site was muddy and very slippery. Watch your steps if you are visiting during rainy season and bring a raincoat (if not, there is a shop that sells it at usd1 at the entrance)

Really great day, our guide Barry was amazing, really nice and knew loads about the sanctuary. The food you get is also beautiful. Overall great half day trip and excellent value for money!

Well organized tour and knowledgable guides! Must do if in the area.

Kind and knowledgeable guide. Had an awesome day at the sanctuary.
