Da Nang options?

The on-line tour description for the second day at Da Nang ("Da Nang & historic Hoi An by cyclo") sounds like a half-day since no lunch is included and it says "enjoy some time on your own in the afternoon." First, can any previous traveler confirm that the afternoon is free (and roughly how long? in Da Nang or in Hoi An?), and did you try to do anything away from the hotel that afternoon, if Da Nang?

It looks like it's a short trip to the Marble Mountains, and the Furama hotel site implies that they can arrange such an excursion.

Appreciate any information/suggestions.

    Hi Scott,

    Would love to hear what you learn about the Marble Mountains. Our trip is not until January 2015 so we have not researched details about Tauck's itinerary and/or side trips on our own except for an overnight excurision to Halong Bay the days before the welcome dinner in Hanoi. Never heard about the Marble Mountains, The site looks amazing but I am a little concerned about the stairs. We are in good health, but we are seniors and so would need more information before we committ to a tour. Thanks, Sherry
  • Hi Portolan,
    On your second day in Da Nang, after your morning activities, the afternoon/night will be spent on your own. Dinner will be at your own leisure as well. I would advise that you call and ask about the Marble Mountains, or once on tour you could always speak with your Tour Director who will be able to provide helpful information.

  • Tauck_Kristin,

    Thanks for the confirmation on the schedule in Da Nang. We will wait to talk with the TD about it since there may be others on the tour who'd like to visit the Marble Mountains that afternoon.

    shescha: I'll report back after the trip. We're also seniors in pretty good shape so you'll have a basis for reference.
