Memorable vacation
Reviewed On: Dec 18, 2019AnnaSouth Africa

Couldn’t have asked for a better finish to a great vacation!! Tuan was responsive to all participants, genuinely took an interest in getting to know each participant and helping us to get to know each other quickly. He made every effort to make sure we were happy throughout the week and gave us such a good overview of all the areas we visited as well as introducing us to so many things Vietnamese. I have never done a guided tour such as this prior to this vacation and after my week in Vietnam would highly recommend this form of travel to anyone.

The tour met and exceeded all our expectations, we had an amazing time and had so many unforgettable experiences! The tour was so well organised and everything ran so smoothly, we were on the go all the time but it never felt rushed or stressful – an amazing achievement. All the attractions we visited were beautiful and interesting, all the restaurants we visited provided us with banquets of delicious local food and all the hotels were luxurious and comfortable. To top it off Vietnam is a beautiful country with friendly locals who have been through so much in their recent history, we’d thoroughly recommend this trip to anyone.
