What to expect

This tour fits in all the greatest hits of Hue in one jam-packed day. You'll take in the best of the city, from the art and architecture to the celebrated food and culture, on foot, by bus and boat. Explore the Imperial City, Tu Duc's tomb and Thien Mu Pagoda among much more.

Packed with temples, tombs, palaces, and pagodas, Hue is the gateway to the treasures of Vietnam's royal past and is a must-see. You'll kick things off with a walking tour around the citadel - within these walls you'll find several of the city's best sites, from the many ornate pagodas to the Forbidden Purple City.

Stop at a traditional tea house and a pagoda for a vegetarian lunch, then hop on the bus that'll take you out into the villages and Vong Canh Hill for panoramic views as well as the Tomb of Tu Duc. Pay a visit to Thien Mu Pagoda, a temple complex overlooking Perfume River. And after a full day's walking, you'll board a boat for a leisurely cruise before exploring Dong Ba market.
