Trip through Vietnam
Reviewed On: Sep 20, 2023Lin DaCanada

This year we visited Vietnam for 12 days. Planning our trip, my fiance discovered the Asia Tour Advisor. He booked the hotel but the travel agent Mr Hong offered to arrange a further trip for us. Participate in organizing nearly everything for us. He arranged the pickup car at the airport and went to the hotel. He rented tourguides for daily tours from our hotels to Vietnam hotspots. Hong took care of us for all 12 days. Whenever we have a question, he's just a whatsapp away. He also informed us when and where we would be picked up.
In short, we never have to take care of anything. We can forward on 100% .

Beatiful tour in Vietnam
Reviewed On: Sep 06, 2023RonAustralia

The trip went on its own without a hitch. We visited five main areas, viz: Hanoi, Ha Long Bay, Hoi An  and Saigon. This required two flights on Vietnam Air all without problems. At each airport, we were guided and the driver. The directions, driver, and vehicle are all excellent. The guides spoke perfect English and we learned a lot about Vietnam.
The bar is always available via email or Whats App which is very comfortable to know.
We will not hesitate to recommend Asia Tour Advisor and Hong. If we go back to Asia, we will definitely use them again, we have told many of our friends about them.
