Xuan Tu's profile photo


Xin chào!  I am Mai Xuân Tú and my surname is MAI.  In Vietnam the custom is for surnames to precede first names - Xuân Tú (pronounced Soong To).  I live in Da Nang and I am really proud and passionate about my country, my people and my culture.

I speak English extremely well. Educated at Da Nang University with a BA in languages I lived for a time in Australia specifically to study English.

I have translated complex English/Vietnamese for concerns including National Scientific & Technology Centre of Canberra, CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) and the US Air National Guard.


My company is 'Xuân Tú Tours Co Ltd' and with my team I provide high quality services based on my Private Day Tours. These are centred on our beautifulhome towns of Da Nang, Hoi An and the Imperial City of Hue, My Son Holy Sanctuary and the amazing rural beauty of central Vietnam. I am government licensed as a Tour Operator for international visitors to my country.

We specialise in fully escorted, memorable and personal experiences for single travellers, couples and groups of friends or colleagues with first world comforts & levels of customer care.  Families will enjoy our relaxed family orientated itineraries for all ages.

Our cruise ship visitors to Chan May & Tien Sa ports are not forgotten. Check our Private Shore Excursion page for 8 daytime excursions designed with your special requirements in mind.  Da Nang, Hoi An, Hue or My Son Sanctuary are within easy reach depending on your port of arrival.

Our customised Private Tour Package is ideal if you are considering 3N2D, 4N3D, 5N4D or planning a visit with extended family.

My Special Tours include team building, student 'Study Abroad' and charitable programmes for larger groups from companies, educational establishments and charitable foundations. I assist with translation, restaurant recommendations, multiple vehicle hire, the provision of professional bilingual guides and special Private Tours designed to meet the organiser's exact requirements.

My Special Tours also caters for Veterans and/or families who return to visit bases and areas of interest. My drivers are really adept at locating forgotten military sites and we personally reconnoitre in advance of your visit to ensure you leave with unforgettable memories.

We customise your visit to our wonderful country with a truly personal 'one on one' touch, whether its a few hours strolling in Hoi An, Hue or Da Nang, a bicycle trip through country areas interacting with locals, a visit to Sun World Ba Na Hill Resort or for ladies a unique shopping experience.  We can take you through the sensual sights and sounds of our markets and the food tastes central Vietnam is famous for.

"Contacting Xuan Tu for a custom itinerary to fit our tight schedule was one of the best decisions of the trip.  She promptly sent over a detailed itinerary proposal with pricing and answered any questions we had before agreeing to proceed"

Itineraries shown here are great illustrated guides to your time with us, but nothing is set in stone - everything is flexible with the focus on you. With my team I want you to experience the very best our amazing country has to offer, let me know if you have a special request or interest and I will do my best to include this for you.


Xuan Tu Private Tours employ a team of 6 government licensed guides to cater for the increasing number of visitors to Vietnam.  We currently offer 18 Private Tours and Shore Excursions. As you can understand I am unable to guide every tour but my teammates are trained by me and speak excellent English.  All are university educated and very passionate about their country.  Some of my teammates are trilingual and speak Mandarin, and good Korean too!  We find clients often have firm favourites and many who return to use our services ask for a guide by name
