We were on a tight schedule on our Vietnam Trip . I read about Asia Tour Advisor and emeiled them with our request, they were prompt with replying and told us the prices which included a fee but they would deliver our tickets to our hotel in Hanoi. We booked and paid for our tickets online . We arrived at our Hotel and the tickets were waiting for us as requested . We are returning for a longer trip next time and will have no hesitation in using Asia Tour Advisor for our travel needs .
