Best tour of Vietnam

The guide Hung was excellent, second to none. He had a wealth of information and was very receptive to our questions about Vietnam history and geography. All in all very informative and inspirational.

Good job
Reviewed On: Jan 04, 2023BaileyAustralia

The tour was thrilling which was made even better by our tour guide Hong. We felt that the tour itself was planned well and ensured we got to experience as much of Vietnam as we could in the time we were there. Our guide enhanced our experience through his knowledge and easy going nature, no question was left unanswered. All accommodation was above expectations (even our overnight train experience despite fairly ordinary bathroom facilities). This was our first tour with ATA, however with the professionalism and the overall experience we will not only book other tours but also recommend them to family and friends.

Appreciate this tour
Reviewed On: Dec 11, 2019SimonUnited Kingdom

The colourful, vibrant country has wiggled into my heart and a huge gigantic part of this is due to Hung. He was informative, funny, proud of his country, critical of it at the same time, and so gentle with the way he allowed us to explore Vietnam. I am so grateful to have been able to experience this trip. He was unassuming and never forced us to do things we didn’t want to. Words cannot express how much I appreciated this tour and our amazing guide.
