Description

Hue is the fourth largest largest city. It has much to see and mostly, feel. It is home to an architectural gem that time has forgot, an ancient religious capital, and nature reserves so dense that new creatures are discovered frequently.

Once you arrive into Hue, you will take a short cyclos ride, a pedal rickshaw, to the Imperial Citadel, which UNESCO has added to its list of World Heritage sites. As you enter through the toweing main gate, you will appreciate the magnificent architecture and gardens while your guide explains the events and the intrigue of the former royal court. Despite being heavily bombed, there are some incredible sections still intact and others that are lovingly restored. A short film runs constantly and helps you understand the impact of this era in Vietnam.

Lunch is served at one of the finest restaurants in the city, Ancient Hue Restaurant. This set menu is included in your tour. Beverages will be additional.

Refreshed, we will drive you to the outskirts of the city to see the most remarkable site, the Khai Dinh Royal Tomb. With each step you climb, you come closer to a true monument that this emperor built to honor himself. Though he was emperor for 9 years, it took 11 years to build and the interior is worth every step you take to reach the tomb. The architecture and atmosphere showcase elements of eastern art and western designs. The mosaics are incredible.

Your ride back to Da Nang and your ship departure will allow you to reflect on an amazing city and its history.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),
