Excellent war tour in Hue
We did a walking tour with Quynh. He is extremely friendly and well informed and able to pass on his knowledge in a very well rounded way, mixing facts with personal experiences, e.g. how his grandfathers were on different sides in the American War and how that resolved itself. My husband is a war historian so they had lots to talk about. I highly recommend these tours as there is always a lot more learned than “just the facts”.

Great Guide and an excellent walk through the sites of the 1968 General Uprising
I took this tour on a nice sunny day with blue skies and a temperature of 38 degrees. My main reason to take this tour is I wanted to walk the streets of Hue with an experienced guide and see for myself the streets where the General Uprising of 1968 took place (called the Tet Offensive outside Vietnam). Secondly, I wanted to take very good photos and this was immensely helped by the fantastic weather.
The tour guide was punctual and she was a recent graduate of the University of Hue majoring in tourism. Her name is Mai H (I will withhold her last name for anonymity).

She spoke near perfect English, had very good knowledge of the sites we walked to and had a pleasant personality. I learned so much about the sites and the historical background. I even learned about the red and gold flag of Vietnam and what each piece meant. Truly amazing.
I must add that Thu, the CEO of Bee Bee Travel has excellent customer management skills and responded very well to my inquires via email before I booked the tour.
The highlight of the tour to me was the Hue Provincial War Museum within the Citadel. The outdoor and indoor exhibits were outstanding. I got to see many of the weapons, armour, field artillery and aircraft used during the American War.
An interesting item in the indoor exhibit was the Soviet Dshk machine gun used so successfully by the Vietnamese People’s Army. I was always wanting to see a real copy of this weapon and it is almost impossible to see one anywhere else particularly outside Vietnam.
I managed to get excellent photos, my knowledge of Hue increased tenfold and I made some new friends. The tour is also very reasonably priced. Can anyone ask for more?
Well done Bee Bee Travel for bringing this unforgettable experience to the world.

Great Walking Tour through Hue
We had a wonderful, very interesting tour with our guide Quinn (at least that’s how we understood his name). Because of a bicycle race we couldn’t take the originally planned route, but our guide didn’t let us get out of control and gave us a great trip through Hue. We had great conversations in our group of 5 people and got insights into the country and its people, which we found very valuable. Even though Quinn is still a “Freshman”, as he said, he offered us an all around recommendable tour. Do definitely take part in a tour, for the price of about $17 there is a lot on offer here. Many thanks for the great day!

Excellent Hue Walk of revolution
We loved our trip with Bem. She was charming and engaging, with an excellent command of English. Our Revolution tour took us from sampling local food at the market to the horrors of the Agent Orange museum. She answered our many questions knowledgeably and came prepared with sunhats and water for us on a scorching day. We would not hesitate to recommend.

Excellent Guide & Informative Tour
Our group of three did a 3-hour Revolution tour with our guide, My. This was the best experience we had in Hué.
My shared deep insights about the French and American wars in Vietnam and how the history relates to present-day society. Her tour was well worth the cost and highly recommended.
