I booked all our transfers for our travel throughout Vietnam in May through Mr Philong and his company. I cannot recommend his company more highly. Philong is very professional, prompt, knowledgable and speaks very good English. We were greeted at Danang, Dalat and HCHC airports by his friendly drivers and we were very grateful when Philong accompanied us on our early 4.00am departure from Hoi An to Danang airport. We also booked the Sunset lantern cruise and had a wonderful night sampling traditional cuisine, playing Vietnamese games and lighting candle lanterns as we cruised down the river in our boat. I was even allowed to drive the boat. Both Philong and our boat driver made this trip so memorable for us. A fantastic evening for $20. We also booked the DMZ day tour and although it was a very long day, we enjoyed seeing the spectacular countryside. The Vinh Moc tunnels were fascinating as was the DMZ boarder museum. I would like to congratulate Mr Philong on his excellent service and we will definitely travel again with him in the future.

We used philong tours in 2010 and this time we where able to meet in person through countless emails we meet at Danang Airport and headed to a bar to make sure what we had for our tour was the correct details before we where happy to continue , we took the DMZ tour which was interesting but long , then to Marble mountains , later in the week i took the trip to My Lai , the 16 th March is my birthday and this activity took part in 1968 so was a sad but interesting story to be there , We where lucky to be invited to his house to meet his wife , We enjoyed his company and on another trip to Hue we made sure we had our dinner with Philong and driver Song at there food hall so we all ate the same food on the same table .
we have seen most sights now offered in Vietnam but if we head back we will certainly bang on his door for more company well worth a visit

We did the DMZ tour from Hoian.
It was worth every minute we spent on the road going north to the DMZ.
The Vinh Mock tunnels were just sensational.
Mr Philong's knowledge of the area was second to none!
It is a very long day but if you are a history buff, doing one on his tours would satisfy your needs.
We had kids with us and he catered for there needs.
Only critic is that it could do with a couple of extra stops on the way up of places of interest.
Pricing was very competitive with what was on offer in Hoi An.

We only communicated on emails and we were so worried that he won't turn up on the tour day. But he was at our hotel 10 minutes early and explain clearly on the tour to us. He speaks fluent English. Mr Philong is very professional.

We hired Philong ( that is actually his name- a one man company) for two things:
1) he picked the four of us up,at the airport in DaNang and drove us to Hoi An. He was right on time, and gave us some interesting information along the ride. He also stopped at a marble store outside DaNang, which we did not particularly appreciate. We told him we were here to see things, not buy things, and after that there was absolutely no buying stops.

2) we hired him 2 days later , to drive us from Hoi An to Hue. He was again right on time, and we visited Marble mountain, the Cham Museum in DaNang, drove over the Hai Van Pass, and had lunch at Lang Co beach. There was a driver; he was the guide. Philong is very nice, helpful, reliable and informative. We were pleased.
