The Experience

Voted as one of the most beautiful bays in the world, with sandy coasts and sparkling water, Nha Trang holds the title of being Vietnam’s best diving spot. We understand your inkling to get under water, but believe us when we say the city above ground is just as beautiful, with plenty of charming spots to explore.

On this city tour, you will be guided around the city by a local university student, and you will get to see Nha Trang from their eyes. So, in addition to all the must-visit sites, you will also get to visit some cool spots that only a local would know. At the end of the day, you will not only leave with fond memories, but also a good friend.


Detailed itinerary

7:30 AM -11:30 AM / 1:30 PM - 5:30 PM

You can opt for either the morning tour which begins at 7:30 AM and ends right before lunch or the afternoon tour that being after lunch and ends in the evening at 5:30 PM.

Our student guides will pick you up at your accommodation and take you to all the must-visit sights in Nha Trang, starting with one of the most popular and beautiful - Long Son Pagoda. Despite being a popular tourist site, this pagoda is still actively used as a place of worship - so this is your opportunity to witness the locals go about their worshipping practices, traditions and customs. While you go around learning about its history from our guides, get ready to do some exercise and get sweaty - you’ll be walking up to the top of the hill. The views are definitely worth it. Remember to wear long trousers and sleeves, so you’re able to visit inside the main hall of the pagoda.

After the peaceful introduction, we head off the fascinating Po Nagar Towers, a set of ruins left by the Cham people who once reigned over majority of coastal Vietnam from the 8th to the 13th centuries. How these towers were made since they are still standing in near-perfect condition is still an archaeological mystery. Try to solve it yourself, but don’t be too hard on yourself if you can’t.

To end the tour is a drive along coastal Nha Trang, heading to Vinh Luong fishing village where you can witness local fishermen bask over their daily catches and their wives doing the selling. Take this moment to breathe in the salty air and snap some stunning pictures with colorful boats scattered around the bay.

In between these fantastic stops you can choose to go wherever you wish. A cafe? Souvenir shop? How about trying some local snacks? Perhaps you’d even like to switch over one of the stops on the itinerary to something else. Just mention it to our guide and they will try their best to accommodate you. We’d love it if you could write to us in advance however, so we can prepare the best itinerary for your tour.


Important

This is a donation-based tour that benefits the students directly. Guests will directly pay for all expenses during the tour. However…

  1. For the safety of our students, a non-refundable verification charge of USD1 will be required for each booking. All net proceeds will go towards training activities to prepare the students to be tour-ready.

  2. For those choosing the motorbike option, we recommend a minimum donation of USD5 to be given directly to the students at the end of the tour to cover motorbike expenses. It's not an obligation but we would hate to see any students incurring out-of-pocket expenses to provide you with an awesome time.

I had an amazing half-day adventure exploring Nha Trang on the back of a motorbike with Viet and Linh. This experience was one of the highlights of my trip to Vietnam. Aside from taking in the sights, both Viet and Linh captured some stunning pictures for us. With only the four of us (2 tourists + 2 guides), it was very personalized & comfortable as I I felt like we were spending the morning with old friends. They were punctual to arrive in the morning and I never felt rushed at any of the stops. Both guides were conscientious drivers and I felt safe throughout. I highly recommend this tour!!


I went on the city tour with a local student and it was absolutely fantastic! We spent the day going to some local markets and trying some different foods. I am always trying to meet local people to get a true authentic experience in the places I am traveling. Onetrip has many great options for anyone looking to experience life like a local. I would highly suggest going on one of their tours!


Hubby and I did the city tour with students Viet and My and had a blast. The whole trip took about four hours and there wasn’t lack of things to see. Riding on the back of the scooter was thrilling and, especially on the way to the fishing village, full of beautiful scenery. And our guides were warm, fun, and enthusiastic. We felt like we were being taken around town by old friends. As a bonus, Viet is a great photographer. Thanks for a wonderful last day in Nha Trang!Tip: Make sure to stop at the cafe with coconut coffee. To die for!
