We’re still so glad we let Jenny handles the booking for our 12 days tour. Being first timer to the country and wanting to visit so many places from north to south it would have taken us forever to research and plan on our own. With Asia Tour Advisors help all we had to do were showed up. Great itinerary and schedule, strategic hotel locations and accommodations, timely and safe drivers, great English speaking and experienced tour guides. We especially enjoyed the company of Anh who guided us through our tours in Hanoi, Danang and Hoi An, he’s really knowledgeable about the area, was very patience and thorough, spoke great English and was a very pleasant person to be around. We’ve never utilized a touring company before so we can’t compare, but given our personal experience with this company we’d say they are great. Highly recommended!

If your looking for a variety of tours in South East Asia and more I recommend Asia Tour advisor 1000%.

They have consistently delivered and exceeded my expectations.

In years past to Cambodia and recently Vietnam.

Most recently Ms. Tham N assisted me with creating the perfect 12 day tour of Vietnam.

We came up with rough itineraries and worked them out from start to finish, with alternatives if necessary. Ms. Tham listened and was in constant contact.

ATA with Ms. Tham helped create the best experience for my colleagues and myself.

She was very astute in budget and time restrictions, she and the staff were communicating through whole process.

If any “bumps” come up they are available to assist 24/7.

Asia Tour Advisor is your place they will meet and exceed your expectations.
