We found Mr. Turtle through a friend's recommendation. Mr. Turtle was fantastic from the start - when we were late to meet him, coming from a cooking class, he waited then met us at the local bar where the class ended and dropped off. Went for a half-day afternoon tour of My Son ruins, which included a boat trip back and a stop off at a local pottery village. Mr. Turtle was energetic, informative, funny, and great at making sure we got plenty of pictures together. We had a blast. We wished we had more time to see other sights with him, especially Marble Mountains, as I know it would have been a wonderful time. Highly recommend using Mr. Turtle for your touring needs in Central Vietnam!
“Go Team Turtle - Marble Mountain and Hoi An old town”

A brilliant exciting day visiting the Marble Mountain and Hoi An old town.
We started the day with a drive to the marble mountain and a quick trip around the shop before heading up the stairs of the Water Mountain. At each level Mr Turtle gave us interesting and informative facts about the legend and history of the mountain, and into areas that many tourists seemed to be walking past.
We the scaled our way to the top for a picture. We were there in August and it was very hot so dress for sun protection and good shoes are a must as the marble can be slippery.
After that we drove back to Hoi An which having already spend 2 days going around the city I was amazed at how much I learnt about the history. He showed us the parts that we had missed like the Japanese bridge and the Chinese meeting houses. (All included in the price)
A quick boat ride and lunch at Banh My Phurong finished an excellent trip in style.
Mr Turtle was a brilliant guide, very knowledgeable and always willing to take photos throughout the trip which as a couple isn't always easy on holiday. He had a great sense of humour and made the trip very memorable.
“Excellent tour from a brilliant guide!”

We had booked a tour through our hotel to visit Marble Mountain during our 6 night stay in Hoi An. Mr Turtle arrived right on time to pick us up in the morning and was really friendly and seemed genuinely interested in getting to know each of us on our small tour group. His English is outstanding and he knows so much about the area, and also made the tour very entertaining!
We enjoyed the Marble mountain tour with Mr Turtle so much that we booked a Da Nang city tour with him for the following day which was equally good - he took us round several sights and then to some of his favourite restaurants so we could try the local delicacies (which were all delicious!).
Both tours were very good value for money and it was great having only a small group size as it made the tour much more personal. I just wish we had known about Mr Turtle at the start of our trip so we could have booked more tours with him!
