Our 4.5 hrs private tour in Nha Trang was a pleasant experience having a well-organized excursion, interesting sites and a knowledgeable guide, named Cam, She has a very good command of the English language, friendly and eager to please her customers, taking time to answer all questions and patiently allowing everybody enjoy their time. The minivan was clean and comfortable and had AC, a well appreciated feature given the hot weather in town at that time. The driver was well mannered and professional, driving us safely in a very cumbersome traffic pattern, specific to the region. It was indeed a good trip.

Our guide met us at our ship for a half day tour of Nha Trang. She was very pleasant and very knowledgeable about Vietnam and this city. Her English was excellent. We enjoyed all of the sites in the area. At the end of the tour, she took us to a nearby cafe where we had a cold beer and access to WI-FI. Having a private tour certainly beats what Princess offered. 50 people vs. 2 and the cost was comparable.

We had a wonderful tour in a private minibus. Stephen was able to describe to us in excellent English an in depth knowledge of the sights and history of the area. We fitted so much into the half day which we would not have been able to do without a guide who was able to assist us around the area. We felt like we were being shown around by a friend as we visited Nha Trang Cathedral, Long Son pagoda, Ponagar Temple and ancient house where we had some refreshing fruit. I recommend paying the small extra to have coconut water drink . At the end of the tour at our request we visited a local restaurant for a beer. I would thoroughly recommend this tour from a cruise to experience the most of the location.

We had a great tour of this beautiful city. Our tour guide was very knowledgable about all the sites we visited. He was accommodating as well. When we told him we wanted to try Vietnamese coffee, he took us to a coffee shop and showed us how to make it!
