Booking a Vietnam Tour package with a tour company in Vietnam (instead of a company based in Australia where I live) was a difficult decision. I would have felt more comfortable making arrangements with a company that had an office in Newcastle NSW. But booking with Asia Tour Advisor proved to be one of the better decisions I have made. After plenty of research, I decided to make arrangements with Thanh Xuan of Asia Tour Advisor. And for about $2000 each person, my GF and I received a 17 day/16 night trip through Vietnam and Cambodia which included 3 star hotel accommodations, breakfast & lunch everyday, our own tour guide on most days, our own private car with a driver, admission to all the major tourist sites we wanted to see including boat rides in the Mekong delta and Hue, and 4 domestic flights within Vietnam and Cambodia since we didn’t want to travel by train. What was not included in this cost was international flights to and from Vietnam/Cambodia, Visa on arrival fee in Vietnam and Cambodia, and dinner (which isn’t a bad thing because that was our opportunity to pick our own restaurants since the tour company had lunch arranged).
The trip was incredible. I was so impressed by the amount of sites to see in our trip.Emperor palaces and tombs in Hue, natural wonders of the world in Halong Bay, temples, Mekong Delta, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh city, killing fields in Cambodia, the old town of Hoi An listed as a world heritage site, and the many historical sites from the Vietnam war such as Hanoi Hilton and the tunnels outside Ho Chi Minh city.
If you are interested in visiting, look into Asia Tour Advisor. Ask for Thanh Xuan. The best part I found with this company is the good customer service. Ms. Xuan was flexible with arranging a vacation that fit our needs. Thank you for the incredible experience Asia Tour Advisor!
