“We enjoyed the tour and in the process learnt about the resistance the Vietnamese people put up during the war. Miss Hoa's extensive knowledge and her passion for her country helped a great deal. One suggestion I would like to make, it would be a good idea to provide free cold water bottles for the duration of the tour since it gets very hot and humid, just like the other tours I went on made this provision. The heat did get to us and we soon ran out of water that we had carried. The next place we could get a drink was only at the Cu Chi Tunnel site.”

“Nina was the perfect tour guide. Very knowledgeable and willing to share what she knows. She even took me to the community garden where she gardens which was not part of the original tour, but that I appreciated very much.”

Welcome to Dana Point – Orange County, the most romantic spot in California! Our tour begins with a coffee and a pastry in the arts district. 

First up, we’ll take a quick meander up to the historical Bluff Top Trail for a birds' eye view of the harbor and stunning views of the Pacific Ocean. 

Then we're off to pick up our kayaking gear! Your professional and experienced guide will assist you in getting familiar with your kayak and there will also be an opportunity to change clothes before we get out on the water. 

We’ll take a jaunt around the harbour and chat about the interesting history and folklore of Dana Point. 

After a spot of beach lounging, we’ll then head back to hand over our kayaks and grab a bite to eat by the harbour at one of our favourite spots, which offers a wide variety of bagels, sandwiches, burgers and salads.

After lunch we’ll take a walk over to the Ocean Institute to learn more about local maritime life. The Institute is an education center and maintains two tall ships, the Pilgrim and the Spirit of Dana Point, for your viewing pleasure.
