Hue City Small Group Tour (Max 12 Pax)

11 reviews
Rather than exploring as part of a huge group, receive personalized attention on a small-group tour of Hue, the historical capital of Vietnam. Ideal for first-time visitors and time-pressed travelers, this tour transports you between dispersed landmarks, including the Thien Mu Pagoda and the far-flung Tomb of Khai Dinh, and ensures you benefit from the insider knowledge of your guide.

At only 8 km of Huê, in the Thuy Xuan Commune, you will find the "Tomb of Tu Dúc", aka the "Tomb of Modesty". It is not only a "Royal Tomb", but a complex of over 50 structures, spread along 20 hectares. Emperor Tu Dúc was the longest ever reigning monarch of the Nguyen Dynasty (1848-1883) and started planning his tomb long before his death, as the tomb was finished in 1867. He probably enjoyed it so much, that he lived in the tomb complex until his death in 1883. Emperor Tu Dúc was a philosopher and an accomplished scholar of history and literature, being responsible for writing his own funerary stele. The complex was divided in many areas, including the tomb itself, palaces, pavilions, ponds ringed by frangipani trees, a small islet and even a theather! Situated inside "Luong Khiem Pavilion", "Minh Khiem Duong" is considered the oldest surviving theater in Vietnam! Amazing legends of the Nguyen Emperors ... Enjoy!

We visited just after a heavy summer rain about 4 PM. Rising moist air gave the tour a mystical magical experence. We were 2 of about 10 others as the rain chased the hoards away. We use the audio narration which is a must to get the story behind the old buildings in the compound. We spent a little over an hour. Pleasant visit good history lesson.

It is different with orthers Tombs in Hue. They did focus the landscapes arround the tomb, so peace and green. Lovely!

Our guide referred to this emperor as the sexy king. Lots of information to take in. The site was well laid-out with attractive lakes and small palaces
