Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My husband and I only spent 2 days in Huè and the best thing we did was to engage Tran Van Thinh Tours to visit the most important places in the city. Travelling in his motorbike was exiting, comfortable and easy: no worries about Hué traffic! Tran Van Thinh explained us lots of interesting things about vietnamese culture, history and spirituality. This guy is very friendly and acts very familiar and it ended like as if we have known him for a long time. Finally, as a gift, he wrote us a short letter with good adivces about our lives.

Very informative. Tran shared his own personal experiences and makes you feel like you’ve known him forever.

The drivers drove safely and take you along roads with exceptional views of the countryside .

The start time and sites to visits can be tailored to your preferences.

This experience does not include insurance so make sure you own insurance covers motorbike rides as a passenger.

Thinh was by far one the most knowledgeable and kind tour guides I’ve had possibly ever. He not only explained all about Hue and the different landmarks but also taught me about Buddhism. Some of his family unfortunately died in the Vietnam war and he explains how he has learned from that experience and wants to create a more peaceful Vietnam and world. After just a few hours with Thinh I can honestly say I met a new friend and I highly highly recommend him as a tour guide around Hue. He is humble kind and provides an amazing experience to remember.

Thinh was very knowledgable, and gave us lots of information about the history and culture of Vietnam. He shared thought provoking personal stories of the Vietnam/American war, life in Vietnam, and Zen Buddhism.

We visited 2 tombs and 2 pagodas, Ghost city (graves of children who died during the American war), a temple and through town/countryside. Busy day and we learnt so much.

Thinh and his wife were both very safe drivers and we felt well looked after throughout. We both had an amazing time.

Thinh speaks excellent English and responded to us promptly via WhatsApp to book the tour. We absolutely recommend anyone to book a tour with Thinh! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Mr. Tran is simply amazing!

He picked me up on his motorbike from the train station, came up with a brilliant custom itinerary for my day in Hue, and was the perfect guide and companion throughout.

One of the best guides I've ever had the pleasure to be shown around somewhere by: smart, knowledgeable, savvy, flexible, fun and kind.

Very highly recommended!

Me and my friend went on a pagoda tour around Hue, we only had 24 hours in the area so wanted to get out of the city to see some of the major landmarks.
We had a great trip and felt safe on the bikes (helmets provided). Would recommend to everyone! Thank you for being so friendly and informative

Thinh is the perfect tour guide: full of wisdom, stories and kindness. We did his Hue City Tour and we covered everything: from beautiful and peaceful Pagodas to the magnificent Royal Tombs and the very moving Ghost City. I cannot imagine a better way to get to know Hue - if you visit Hue please make sure you book a tour with Thinh. Thank you Thinh and your family for taking care of us and being amazing motorcycle drivers!

I called Thinh for a guided tour of Hué by bike and as soon as I met him I knew he was the right person for that exact moment. We visited the pagodas, the royal tombs and the citadel and he explained to me many things about the history of the city. I was so happy to meet him that, at the end of the day, I decided to take the tour to Hoi An with him, visiting three passes (way to Hai Van is super!!), Lang Co beach, Marble mountain (the Budda cave inside is breathtaking). He is a good and careful driver. Thank you Thinh, thank you so much good sul, you really made the difference 🙏

We went on an extensive tour of Huè and its surroundings with Thinh and his wife Van: on board their motorbikes they took us to visit the main sites of the city plus a few "hidden" stops! The strong point of the tour is certainly Thinh himself with his stories, his testimonies, the emotions he transmits and his attachment to his country and its history!

After reading very positive feedback about Thinh and his tours, we decided to book a tour to explore Hue City. Everything we read was absolutely true. Thinh is a wonderful human being with a kind soul. He shared with us many interesting facts about the city and vietnamese culture, and hear him speak about his family story was intense but very important. Everything was perfect and we could not wish for a better guide. We will definitely be coming for the most awesome guide in this country! Thank you for everything, Thinh! You have the warmest of hearts.
