    Hoi An My Son sunrise with Mr Ken
    Fantastic tour. Pick up at 5am in Hoi An, interesting early morning drive to My Son. Mr Ken our guide was very helpful and had very good knowledge of the site.i learned so much about the history. Mr Ken is also a v good photographer and took photos of us both- great pics. Our return journey we had a very good history lesson about Vietnam. Very interesting journey. We loved it and I highly recommend.

    Very Illustrative
    My Son is definitely worth a visit. Though the temples are largely in ruins, you still get a good idea how great the complex must have looked when they were intact. It's quite the change to find such an old and serene place so close to Hoi An, whose charm is a result of much more recent history. Doing the sunrise tour is a good idea, as it allows you to dodge most of the crowds. My guide was Mr. Ken, who spoke great English, was very knowledgeable about the place and Vietnamese history in general, and was able to point out all sorts of fascinating details.

    Nice Day Trip From Hoi An
    We booked this day trip through our hotel. Travel time to Marble Mountain from Hoi An is about 20 minutes. Keep in mind that going to Marble mountain is not for the physically incapable. Marble mountain consist of a couple of spectacular caves, temples, Buddha statues and a lot of climbing to get to the top of the mountain. The view are quite stunning from the top. There is an elevator that takes you to the pagoda, but not all the way up to the peak. The caves are amazing, and a must do. Monkey mountain on the other hand has nothing to do with monkeys, except that there is a species of monkeys that live on that mountain. It is very rare that you will get to see them. Instead the tour take you to the north end of Danang (along the coast). Here you will see an amazingly tall statue of a Lady Buddha. A beautiful Pagoda and a spectacular view of the coastline of Danang. Unfortunately, you can not go into the pagoda or go up the statue of the Lady Buddha. However, it's surely a trip worth taking. Was a lot of fun.

    Tour to Ba Na Mountains with Simply Vietnam Travel
    Sun World at Ba Na Hills is a brilliant place, the cable car is second only to China's Zhangziagie in length at 6.5 km long. The tour was a litle rushed, certainly around the Golden Bridge level, where the crowds prevented a lot of time to take photos, however you do get 2 hours to your self further up at the French Village level. Our guide Mr No was very good, the bus driver not so good, but then not everyone in Vietnam is.

    Good Fun!
    We had a good tour organizer, who had arranged a very experienced guide on the tour. He knows almost everything and was very kind enough to take very good shots that highlight the beauty of the site. The driver was a young guy, otherwise, drove well. Overall rating, excellent!

    Golden Bridge and Ba Na Hills via Cable Car
    We booked this tour as we wanted to see the Golden Bridge. We were greeted at our hotel right on time, this was a private tour and our tour guide named Key was exceptional. His English was exceptional and he had a really good sense of humour! He gave us lots of information about Ba Na Hills and was an exceptional guide all through the day! He made sure we saw everything we needed to see, took lots of photos for us! We had lunch included in our tour which was very very good indeed. It was buffet style at the top of BaNa Hills the variety was fantastic. If you leave hungry it’s your fault. The cable car and the French Village was a great sight to see, with a party atmosphere. It was a little cooler up there, I was perhaps expecting to wear a light hoodie or similar, but believe me, when a Vietnamese person tells you it’s cooler, they mean it’s as hot as a British Summer so definitely not a need for a cardigan! Cannot thank Key enough for a great day! He made it as special for us. Well worth going with this tour company. I have already recommended to a friend who is going in June.

    Choose the Private Sunrise Tour!
    There are some tours that you want to leave a review of even before the excursion is done. This is one of them. The tour operator called to confirm pickup the night before, they were on time, and Ken was one of the best guides on our whole trip. He was incredibly knowledgeable and spoke from first-hand experience and his own extensive research. Also, do the sunrise tour! We were the only ones at the site and the morning sun made our photos superb. Plus you get in and out before it gets too hot. As we were set to leave, a bunch of large coach buses pulled in. We were picked up in Danang at 5:30 and got back at 9 am.

    Early morning great decision
    We had a very early start leaving our hotel in Hoi An at 5am and arrived at My Son by 6am. Gates open at 6:15am and then you get shuttle close to the temple area. A short walk of 300m and you can experience the beautiful temples. Our guide Lam was very knowledgeable and happy to help take some photos for us. There was only 8 other people looking at the temples this early so it was easy to get photos of all the temples without strangers in them. Apparently the normal morning tours that start at 8/9am are very crowded & you can’t get great photos. The light at sunrise was still quite dark because the temples are in the bottom of a valley. The best light started to appear around 7:30 when we were leaving. If photography is important for you make sure you stick around longer.

    Worth it!
    For one day, you can wake up early (for us it was before 5am to leave at around 5.30am from Da Nang, I believe) to be able to have such a smooth, crowd-free experience of Vietnam's history. We were the first group walking around and only one other tour was there at the same time, but that is nothing compared to the masses that would've arrived a few hours later! As someone mentioned, it does give you great pictures as well, especially if you had a guide, who was a former photographer like we did! I can't recall his name, but he was such a friendly and happy old man, who loved to share his great knowledge about the buildings and people that used to be and live there, and is open to any of your questions. It is quite a nice experience in itself and I would therefore highly recommend the sunrise tour to everyone wanting to visit My Son!

    A Storytelling Day
    We left Hoi An at 5am (we had a choice of departing whenever we wished), which felt like a mistake until we actually arrived at My Son. The cooler temperature, golden light, and nearly deserted grounds were 100% worth the early morning. Ken Van picked us up, and in the end, his story of serving as an American military interpreter, political prisoner, and more became the highlight of the trip during the 1-hour drive each way. He gave a great tour of the actual site as well, but don't miss the incredible personal story he has to share!!

    Nice day out
    We emailed Andy at late notice to see if we could do a private day trip to see My Son, Marble Mountains and the Lady Buddha and this was arranged with no issue including lunch, pick-up and drop-off at our hotel, with our choice of pick up time. We chose a 7am pickup time which was good as we were some of the few people at My Son when we arrived and during our walk around. Some of the first large groups of tourists were entering as we were leaving about 9am to 9:30am. Our guide for the day was Mr Khoa who was very friendly but was sometimes a bit reserved and didn't always provide a lot of commentary on the areas we were visiting without prompting. He also seemed to know more about My Son and Marble Mountain than the Lady Buddha, which could be due to the Lady Buddha being added onto the end of the standard day trip. Overall it was a nice day trip and was the best way to see everything with limited time.

    Very reliable with very friendly and warm tour guide.
    We booked a private tour to My Son Sanctuary in June 2018 with Andy and our guide was Uncle Chinh, who was really great with my two young kids (5 and 3). Obviously the kids loved him, especially when at the end of the tour he bought them each a bottle of orange juice. :D But the highlight was of course the tour itself. We were picked up at our requested time and during the one-hour journey from Hoi An Uncle Chinh told us a lot about the history of Quang Nam province. During the tour he was very knowledgeable and explained to us in details. He also knew when to avoid the crowd so we had some private moments at the sanctuary. We went in the morning at around 8:30am and came back just in time for lunch. We loved every second of it. :) Thank you Andy and Uncle Chinh for arranging this tour for us.
