Good job
Reviewed On: Jan 03, 2023BorensteinGood jobUnited States

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.

We booked Hanoi and Halong bay trip with Asia tour advisor. Our point of contact was Ms. Xoa. Visa, Hotel, guide, Cruise, transportation, food everything was arranged by them. Everything was very well planned and executed. I will strongly recommend to use their service if you just want to pack bags and enjoy. Leave everything else to them. Just give them your preferences of food, what kind of places you want to see etc. Their prices were also very good. Thanks Asia tour advisor team.
