This was our second trip to Vietnam but our first time to Da Nang. Picking a good guide based on reviews and brief bios is luck at best and often results in a disappointing experience. Fortunately, our experience with Nguyen exceeded expectations and resulted in an enjoyable experience for me and my traveling partner. Not only was he very well-versed in local history but able to describe things in a way we could relate to. Communication was very good, which is not always the case in Asia, and pride in showing us Hoi An, the area he was raised, made for an enjoyable and interesting full-day tour. All in all we had a very satisfying two and a half days with Nguyen and highly recommend him.
