Chào mừng bạn đến Miền Trung Việt Nam!
Welcome to Central Vietnam!

Central Vietnam has some of the best ‘must-see’ sights, scenery and attractions in South East Asia. Most are within easy reach of Tien Sa or Chan May. These are the two ports that serve our hometown of Hoi An, Da Nang city with its Golden Bridge and imperial Hue.

We understand the unique requirements of our cruise ship guests. We include dockside pick-up, quality vehicles and our renowned English speaking tour guides. The timely return to your ship in plenty of time for departure is foremost in our planning.

“If a picture is worth a thousand words — the smiles on our faces in all of our pictures from that day tell the story! From the moment Man picked us up to the time we had to leave at the cruise ship he provided an outstanding tour”

Our Private Shore Excursions give a true taster of authentic Vietnam in the time available. Our customer service is first class and your safety and security is assured.

We welcome couples, families, small groups of friends and Cruise Critic ‘Roll Call’ forum groups.

Your cruise itinerary will show either Chan May or Tien Sa port as your entry into central Vietnam. Chan May is the gateway to our imperial city of Hue while Hoi An & Da Nang is easily reached for a great day tour. Tien Sa is the actual port of Da Nang, so Hoi An & Da Nang are your destinations from here.

Choose a wonderful day from our ‘typical itineraries’ shown below. Or let us design an individual trip around your requirements. Our trips don’t come off the shelf, there’s no set recipe except the time constraints of your visit. We listen to what you want and then carefully design a trip around you.
