Great tour with good balance of time vs detail
Was just the two of us with a single tour guide (she was a freelance tour guide working for Beebee) so we had the opportunity to ask a lot of questions and tailor the tour timings nicely. Good length with a healthy level of history of Hue Imperial explained.
A fruitful walk with a lovely local guide
We made a great choice with Beebee’s citadel walking tour last Saturday morning. Our local guide, Bem, was knowledgeable and super lovely. I mean, she could perfectly balance between facts & figures and humorous explaination. The weather was hot but we had wonderful time together exploring the ancient capital, Vietnamese history and local culture. 100% recommended!

Hue Imperial City Walking Tour with knowledgeable local guide
Me and my friend András participated to a 3-hour walking tour in Hue’s “”Imperial City”” with a local guide (a student named Bem).
Our guide was konwledgeable, cheerful and spoke good English. She took the time to answer our questions, but did not overload us with information. I mean: she found the right balance between things to know and things to see/experience.
I recommend the tour to anyone wishing to discover the Imperial City, even if you have as little time in Hue as we did (half a day).
I booked 3 tours with this company (hue imperial city, local food tour and walking tour) and I had a really good time with hours exploring about the Hue imperial history and its famous cuisines.All the guides were very kind with me and explained me a lot of things to enjoy the city of Hue as much as possible. 100% recommendable!
