The Hue tour was ok, we skipped the Tomb of the 12th King because its too hot. The agency doesnt seem to know we have a Danang tour as well, and #39;til we reminded him. We went to the caves, the tour guide mentioned the marble mountain is a tedious in the heat, so they took us to the see the Lady Buddha.
This was a very long day and while we learned a great deal it was quite tedious and tiring. Our driver arrived on time but our guide was 15 minutes late. The guide was quite young and spent a lot of time grooming his hair. He looked like he had a hangover when he arrived but blamed his tardiness on needing to get petrol for his motor bike. The guide got better as the day progressed and was quite friendly and looked after my travelling partner who was an elderly gentleman. Unfortunately his English was only average but he insisted on explaining the historical significance of every place that we visited in minute detail. He was passionate about his culture but it was hard work trying to work out what he was saying and we would often have to stand in the heat while he went on about some piece of history. He could not read body language or take the hint about when we had heard enough and wanted to move on.
It was a long drive to Hue and I would only recommend it if you really wanted to find out about the imperial history of Vietnam. The only touring of Danang was a trio to Marble Mountain and a drive through the city. I wish our guide had explained the history during the long periods of driving and ten we could have had more of a look at the attractions.
