Excellent Hue tomb tour and Imperial city tour
We took two tours: the Imperial City and the Emperor Tomb Tours. Both were excellent. Both guides were extremely friendly, and knowledgeable. As a Vietnamese myself, I learned more of the history during Nguyen dynasty during their tours than 12 years of high school. When I suggested booking the Tomb Tour, my friend was a bit reluctant. However, the guide, Hoa, proved that a visit to emperor tombs could be an excellent occasion to learn about the country’s history, and architecture as well as getting to know the emperors more intimately at places far far way from the city and surrounded by nature. Highly recommended for those who are planning a trip to Hue!

I had a brilliant day with the guys running the tour, they all had great personalities and instantly felt like I was spending time with friends.
They’re all really knowledgeable and took us on a tour of the city, and then the Citadel.
They even took us for some awesome local street food in the evening then showed us a really cool live music venue to top the night off.
The next day they took us on a tour of a few of Hue’s tombs and helped organise our onward travel to Hoi An.
I learnt so much about Hue, and Vietnam in the past and today, and was all made easy and entertaining by these awesome guys. If you only have a day or two in Hue I strongly recommend taking one of their awesome tours.

Excellent tours, the friendly way!
I opted for 2 seperate tours over 2 days, both by scooter..what a great choice that was ! Su collected me at 8am sharp from Villa Louise for a small fuel surcharge, and quite rightly so, it’s 15km outside of Hue.!!
The first day was spent in Hue itself, starting with coffee in a locals coffee shop, none of your Starbucks rubbish here.!! Good strong Vietnamese coffee.!
We then went onto the local market to see what and how the locals bought followed by about an hour and a half in the Ancient Citadel…a fascinating place and an absolute must see..
All this while Su was giving me indepth and informed information in a friendly and casual, non-guide manner, answering any questions I had.
We also had time to visit the Thien Mu Pagoda, followed by a light lunch in a typical Vietnamese Noodle place.
The second day was spent touring outside of Hue, in particular, a couple of the Nguyen
Dynasty Tombs..yet another must do.! And then I was taken to the Lagoon, where we parked up the bike, jumped on a longtail boat for 10 minutes and had lunch on a stilted platform ‘restaurant’ where lunch consisted of ridiculously fresh shrimp and a fish pancake, and where I assure that I was the only ‘tourist’ for miles around!! Fabulous.!
Su picked me up and dropped me off to Villa Louise on both days.
Su and her team obviously love their City, and take pride in showing off all that it has to offer, both Tourist ‘hotspots’ AND the smaller out of the way places that larger tour groups never get to see.
I believe it is a relatively new Business, and from the two days that I spent with Su in Hue, deserves to do well…and I’m positive it will.
i wouldn’t hesitate to reccommend a day or two with Beebee. .it’s like seeing a City with friends.

I did two walking tours with them, and one tour by car, to visit the Minh Mang tomb. All thre were very well staffed, with just the kind of people that you want to spend some time with: knowledged, very friendly, dynamic, caring. Their command of English always was good, which can be a challenge in Vietnam, and the general mood of these tours is most pleasant. I feel that Vietnamese people have a lot to teach to Westerners in general, as far as attitude goes, and spending time with them is refreshing. Thanks to Lien, Thu and the boys, I loved it.
