Da Nang Hoi An Walking Tour Excursion Reviews

Hoi An, a historic town recognized by UNESCO, is about 22 miles from Da Nang. Discover the spectacular, old-world trading port with its narrow streets, former merchants' homes and iconic 400-year old Japanese covered bridge.
Chan May port is very far away from Da Nang and even further from Hoi An.

Chan May port is very far away from Da Nang and even further from Hoi An. Non RCCL tour operators are not allowed in the port area. I wish we went to Da Nang only for a city tour. The driver we hired took us back early but refused to enter the docking area, making us take a taxi for the final 500m! Don't book with them: https://www.dananglocaltour.com/ Read Less

Tour included a cooking class at the Morning Glory Cooking School. After a visit to the central market which was far more authentic than what we'd been guided to in Saigon, we went to a space above a restaurant and cooked. The only problem with this tour is the lack of time to explore this fascinating town with its above par shopping. Wish we'd had more time. Read Less

Marble mountain - lots of steps but worth it to see the cave temples. Hoi An was great, but very busy, probably busier because of Chinese New Year. Interesting house museums, cultural performance, market. Very attractive, with even more lanterns than usual. Worth staying till after dark to see the lanterns lit. A highlight in Vietnam. Read Less

We booked a sightseeing and food tour with Saigon Adventure (we used them for Ho Chi Minh city as well as this port). This was a private tour for myself, my husband and 12 year old daughter. We started by Van to My Son ruins and spent the morning there. This is the "Angkor Wat" of Vietnam. It is beautiful, and stunning in its antiquity, but they all start looking the same after awhile so I didn't need a whole morning there. We cut it a little short, which we had the option to do, given it was a private tour. We then moved on to Hoi An, and the weather cleared so we moved on to scooters. This helped us get our food tour underway outside of the old city. We visited an organic farm that provides food for Hoi An, it is beautiful and peaceful, buffalo and kids riding bikes. Like being in the countryside though you're just on the edge of the city. Getting into the old centre of Hoi An was beautiful. Yes, it's packed full of tourists, but the buildings are beautiful, the shops actually have very nice stuff and it's very lively. This would be an easy place to go out on your own, but we loved our tour guides -- having a local with you made it more fun, we learned a lot, ate the best food and got the best bargains. The guides we had from Saigon Adventure were fantastic! Read Less

Getting off the ship was chaotic but we eventually got onto our bus to take us 1 hour and 45 minutes to the beautiful town of Hoi An, nearly 2,000 years old. Despite only having 3 hours here and spending 1 hour standing in doorways because of rain, we really enjoyed seeing a bit of this town. Quaint streets and lovely old bridges, intere sting cafes, good tourist shops to buy souvenirs, really good wifi in the whole town. We stopped at Brothers Cafe which had been recommended to us by a friend and it was a beautiful restaurant on the river with lovely views and gardens - food was great. I would come back here and stay longer. Read Less

Not a lot to see in Hoi Ann apart from loads of other tourists. Includes visit to Marble shop on way home, enabling the coach driver and others to earn commision. Beware drivers adjacent to ship offering $10 trip around Da Nang. Took this as trip finished very early. There was a driver and his friend in the car, after 10 minutes they asked if l wanted to be taken to a massage parlour, no issue with this, but they were not pleased when l refused. Went to the market in the middle of town and left for 45 minutes. Once picked up, they asked if l wanted to go to the Marble shop, again. l refused, they then admitted they would get $10 commission, if l went there. Felt intimidated, so l agreed. Had to convince the saleswoman that l was serious, but needed to go back to ship to get my wife's approval. She wanted to come back to the ship with me! Eventually was able to get back to the ship without her. When back the driver wanted $10 plus $10 for his friend, as they could have driven off with me inside, agreed to pay his friend $5. Read Less

Danang/Hoi An: a very pleasant destination. We started the day in Hoi An, with a guided tour through the local street market to show us the local veg, herbs, etc. It was off to a cooking class after that, in which we learned how to make a variety of delicious Vietnamese dishes. After a quick look at some local historical buildings, we had about 2 hours of free time to roam around, do a bit of shopping, and try a few more local delicacies. We had a brief stop at the beach in Danang, which was quite scenic. Both Danang and Hoi An are places we would definitely visit again. Read Less

One of the first groups off the boat. Waiting for around 10 minutes and our van and guide arrived. Straight off to explore for the day. We went to Marble Mountain, which is very beautiful and well worth braving the huge number of stairs! We had lunch in HoiAn - beautiful restuarant picked by our Guide Viet. We wandered the lovely streets of HoiAn, with an opportunity to do some shopping. Didn't get long enought, but will definitely be a place we will come back to again and spend more time. Dropped back to port with about 15 minutes before required time. A lovely day and would recommend Vietland Discovery. We were planning on doing a cycling tour, but all agreed we were glad we did not as the weather was extremely hot and humid. Read Less

This tour started in a somewhat boring Museum where the "brainwashed guides" wanted to impress upon you how the Country developed. We were not impressed and felt we would have a disappointing day - how wrong we were! We left Da Nang and travelled through the countryside to Hoi An an absolutely fascinating place with canals and historic buildings dating back centuries. The market stalls packed, not only with the usual local produce but some with "fake designer goods" of all descriptions. Lunch at a local restaurant on the return journey was excellent. Read Less
