Hue City Tour Full Day Itinerary
Truong lan in Forbidden City

08:00 The Hue Citadel story

Our private Hue Full Day City Tour has to start at the amazing 19th century Citadel of Hue which surrounds the original Imperial City, the Purple Forbidden Palace and various ancient monuments. More recently in 1968, and during the Tet Offensive, the most famous “Battle of Hue” resulted in enormous damage to both the city and Citadel – you will see signs of this and rebuilding works to this day.

10:00 The Hue Religion at Thien Mu pagoda

We must eventually leave the Citadel of Hue and its intriguing history to visit the very special Thien Mu (Heavenly Lady) pagoda overlooking the Perfume River which at 7 stories high originally built in 1601. If time permits we will arrange a private Dragon boat trip along the Perfume River from city to Pagoda for you to enjoy the peaceful vibe of the city from the boat. This comes with an extra charge of $15/ single boat, please note to us.

In the later half of your Private Hue Full Day City Tour, we will take you to visit Tu Duc royal tomb. There are 7 Hue Imperial tombs built by the Nguyen kings along the Perfume River and in the surrounding countryside. Located in a narrow valley 8 km from Hue in Duong Xuan Thuong village, Tu Duc’s tomb is one of the most beautifully designed complexes and is embedded in a lush pine forest. Together with my team, you will hear story of Emperor Tu Duc and admire his quiet and peaceful work of art.

Bespoke private tour Hue Citadel, Thien Mu pagoda, Perfume River boat excursion, Tu Hieu pagoda & Market
Tour guide Miss Le Huyen My (pronounced me) and dedicated driver for whole day.

we have been touring vietnam and taken personal tours in Hanoi, Hoi An, group tour in ha long Bay. All have been good.

But this tour and in particular the service provided by miss My, was beyond exceptional, she was utterly charming, very knowledgeable, patient, taking as long as we wanted to answer all of our questions and assist us in so many ways including introducing us to new exotic foods, and met our every need and request. Hue is not my favourite destination, it rained most of the day, but My turned a dull day into an experience we will remember for years to come. Her English was also perfect!

The cost was very reasonable and brilliant value for money, I cannot recommend Bee Bee travel and in particular My highly enough, they were BRILLIANT!

A special thanks to our Driver, who was also always on time and did everything we asked of him, he spoke little English but his service was second to none and a calm driver in manic traffic, he made us feel safe and comfortable at all times.

Overall premier class!!

Thank you

I can’t review the tours because I never actually did any, but I can say that the staff were brilliant when I had to cancel four tours at extremely short notice due to illness. They were very understanding and, even though they weren’t obliged to provide any refund, they didn’t charge for two tours and gave me half-price for the other two.

Wonderful tour at HUE with BeeBee
We are family of 3 (with young kid) from SGP, this is our first time to HUE. We do our private tour with Beebee Travel, is the best choice we made. Although they are young tour guide, but they are professional with lots of enthusiasm and zest. I like their drive and passion at work. Their English are well spoken, they explain to us the history and culture very well and clear. We had a great time with them, thank you Su, Sam, Hero & Trinh for your company and lead us for the tour, we really appreciate that, and would not hesitate to recommend your service to our fellow friends who are going to visit HUE.

Beebee Travel – Excellent City Tour; Foodie Tour; Touring Arrangements

Our group spent 4D/3N in Hue and arranged various activities with Beebee travel prior (3 mos. ahead) to our arrival. We choose Beebee travel based on positive TA reviews and we were not disappointed. Excellent arrangements, outstanding guides, and great service by the Beebee team. Thu (agency owner) is very hands on, super responsive, and very flexible to changes in our itinerary.

We arranged a day long Hue Citadel + Tombs tour with guide and driver. Also an evening Hue Foodie tour and a day long transport to Hoi An with a planned day of hiking at Bach Ma National Park. Last minute changes (mainly due to weather – rain) necessitated changing the foodie tour from motorbike to van. Also we changed a hiking day at Bach Ma NP to transport only to Hoi An due to weather. These last minute changes were no problem for Thu et.al. So, again outstanding customer service and responsiveness by Beebee travel.

Anyway, the Hue Citadel/Tombs tour was customized to how we wanted it. Our guide was informative, interesting, and one of the best guides of our month long trip to Vietnam. The Foodie tour was also excellent. We had 2 guides and we visited restaurants, food stalls that otherwise we would have had no idea to visit. Thu joined us at the tail end of our Foodie tour. Again, a very hands on approach by Beebee owner to ensure good customer service.

I can’t say enough good things about Thu, her team and Beebee travel. They did an outstanding job for our group. I would not hesitate to use Beebee travel for any arrangements/advice about Hue or Vietnam in general.

Bottomline…. Beebee Travel – Highly Recommended!
