Da Nang Private Shore Excursions From Tien Sa Port
Tien Sa port is just 15 minutes from Da Nang city itself. While very industrial in nature, it welcomed more than 112 cruise ships in 2019, an increase of 4% over 2018. Our shore Excursions from Tien Sa port include; Da Nang city, pretty UNESCO listed Hoi An and Ba Na Hills with its famous Golden Bridge. My Son sanctuary can also be reached from Tien Sa, usually linked with an afternoon visit to Hoi An and an authentic Vietnamese lunch.
“I appreciated the email correspondence we had to make sure we booked exactly what we wanted and the ease of starting the tour from a cruise ship. Tours from the cruise ship involve big buses and “cattle car” tour options, so this experience was 100 times better than that! You cannot go wrong with booking a tour with Man’s company”
Da Nang Private Shore Excursions From Chan May Port
Chan May port is midway between Da Nang and imperial Hue city, northeast of our famous Hai Van Pass. It links Vietnam’s East-West Economic Corridor connection into Laos. It’s very industrial in nature but has the ability to welcome the largest passenger ships. Our shore excursions from Chan May include: Imperial Hue and Ba Na Hills with its Golden Bridge. Depending on time in port we can include Da Nang city and pretty UNESCO listed Hoi An.
“I cannot compliment the company, driver and tour guide enough. As an added bonus it was clearly a careful and safe drive – important in Vietnam. It is strange to me that this private full-day tour was cheaper than the mass bus tours that the cruise companies run, so don’t follow the masses, book local !”
We strongly believe that tourism should benefit our community, while at the same time providing our guests with a genuine Vietnamese experience. You deal directly with us from start to finish, and never through third party arrangers from outside Vietnam.
That ‘local experience’ is an essential part of your time with us. All shore trips on our website use our own team of local uniformed guides and drivers. This helps to generate employment & income for those who need it.
Man, Sia and team look forward to seeing you when you call into central Vietnam.
WHY TOUR WITH US
”We arrived via cruise ship in Da Nang and could not have been happier with our tour. Not only was our 2-day tour with our guide Tuan and driver, the best tour we had during our 3 week trip to Asia, but it was the best tour we have ever taken anywhere.
We have never been so well cared for by a tour company, and guide and driver. Booking was easy and Man Nguyen was very patient with all of our questions. Upon arrival, Tuan and our driver were always right there outside of our cruise ship waiting for us, and they always got us back to the ship in more than enough time. The car they used to transport us was a very comfortable and well-maintained SUV with great A/C, seatbelts, etc. Every time we got back to the car, we were greeted with fresh, cold bottles of water and these chilled, packaged towels for cooling our neck/faces/hands.
The driver always opened our door for us and was an excellent and safe driver. Tuan was incredibly knowledgable and so enthusiastic about his home region. We have never had such a great tour in any country or city. We also loved our itinerary which included major sites as well as special places off the tourist path. I cannot recommend Man Nguyen highly enough. I only wish we were able to get that level of service and tours everywhere that we travel” – Jan 2020
