Loc picked us up from Hoi An and took essentially the most scenic route ever to Hue where we drove through the Hai Van Pass and stopped at an amazing floating seafood restaurant. We had already been to Marble Mountain a few days earlier and so Loc was extraordinarily accommodating by taking us to a wonderful beach as an alternative. He was a superb and safe driver and was also so friendly and kind throughout the whole experience. Having him as a driver undoubtedly made the day a fantastic one. I might definitely recommend your company to our friends

Completely recommended!

We additionally stopped by an oyster and pearl farming village at a relaxation stop where Johnny recommended us to wait for 20 minutes to take photos closer to sundown. While waiting, we have been… Read more »
