The perfect balance
Reviewed On: Jan 01, 2024AnjanaNew Zealand

My friend and I had never been to Asia before and we did the Vietnam trip with AsiaTourAdvisor. It was an incredible experience and so many amazing activities were planned for us that we would never have found out about on our own. AsiaTourAdvisor was a perfect mix of having fun, experiencing culture and letting us wander and do our own thing whenever we wanted and never felt like a strict or structured schedule. Wish we had more time to keep traveling!

Book a last minute trip to Vietnam. With my preference for a custom & smaller tour, Mr Hong from Asia Tour Advisor is the fastest to respond & assist with arrangements via WhatsApp, even late at night.
Transitioning from hotel to cruise to a private tour is seamless and both the tour guide and driver are professional and knowledgeable (as I traveled with my mother who is over 70 years old).
I would highly recommend and would like to commend Mr Hong, as I am sure that he will find ways for her clients.

Two weeks in Vietnam
Reviewed On: Sep 12, 2023LyndallSouth Africa

While planning the vacation we wanted to spend in Vietnam, we stumbled upon the Asia Tour Advisor. At first, we just wanted to book a small tour from Hanoi as we had booked hotels for the rest of our stay. But Xuan, our travel agent at Asia Tour Advisor, asked if she should offer us a ride. Because she seems so capable, we say yes. With no problem keeping our hotel room, Xuan planned everything around it. You can choose truly personal, the trip is custom – made according to your wishes and budget.
Arriving in Vietnam, everything went very well. Pickup car at airports, train stations and hotels, everything happens like clockwork. We even had a guide to inspecting night trains. Also Xuan was there for us the whole time. Whenever we have a question, we can reach her through whatsapp.
The tour guides were really nice and the trips were very enjoyable. We had a mixture of private tours and group tours (as we wished) and we learned a lot about the country. At each destination we can also enjoy traditional dishes.
At first it was strange to be taken care of so much, but since this country is so different from us, we are glad that we do not have to look for everything on our own and can just relax.
So we can definitely recommend Asia Tour Advisor and we thank Xuan for a great stay.
