Huế pronounced /hwy/, this poetic capital of the Nguyen emperors still resonates with the empires of Vietnam (1802 – 1945), even though many of its finest buildings were destroyed during the Vietnam War. This is a famous historic destination, where you have seen many beauties of Vietnamese culture since the 17th century. Hue is a romantic city with the charm and peace of the Perfume River.

Joining Da Nang/ Hoi An – Hue – Hoi An day trip, you take advantage of visiting Hue Imperial citadels, the ancient pagoda near the Perfume river bank, Thien Mu pagoda, (the Heaven Lady Pagoda), and discovering Hue city.

07.30: Our driver picks you up at your hotel, leaves Hoi An behind, and heads for Hue. Along the way, stop at China Beach (known locally as My Khe Beach) and pass through the gorgeous Hai Van Pass – a scenic, mountainous stretch of highway with views across Lang Co Bay.

The latter was almost destroyed during the Tet Offensive in the Vietnam War, but its humble, foliage-covered ruins remain a testament to its proud history.

    our family (4 people) used the Da Nang private car services twice on our trip. First time was an airport pick up from Da Nang transfer to Hue city. We used the minivan for comfort and weren’t disappointed, clean car, good air-condition. the 2nd booking was Hue city tour 1 day and transfer to Hoi An from hue city with stops at Marble Mountain and Lap An lagoon and Hai Van pass.
    Everything was made through Hoang Vo and he made everything very easy, smooth, replies to emails were instant and made it all very stress-free. Driver and our tour guide Hary were excellent, professional and friendly and I can’t recommend this service enough.

    We booked online day trip from Huracars from Hoi An to Hue with some sightseeing along the way. Hoang was the fastest to respond to us although we booked the morning before. He was with us on Whatsapp which was much better than having to go back and on email. Mr Hary the guide and driver was at our Hoi An hotel even before 8 am as scheduled. He was friendly, pleasant and most of all a safe and knowledgeable guide. He followed patiently for us at all times and is always with a smile and we learn more Hue history from Hary. We added some tomb sights into our itinerary in addition to the normal places en route. Thanks so much Hoang and Mr Hary. We will definitely recommend others when visiting Danang, Hoi An and Hue.
