Everything was perfect
Reviewed On: Oct 03, 2019Kabe LawtonUnited States

We asked Asia Tour Advisor for a itinary as we were visiting Vietnam and Laos for 14 days and they certainly planned everything perfectly. We had a trip we will never forget. We were met at airport and looked after so well. Nothing was too much trouble. We were a party of 4 and travelled from Vietnam to Laos with very knowledgeable guides. I have to mention Tran, Hong in Asia Tour Advisor such caring friendly coordinator. Would recommend Asia Tor Advisor to anyone who is interested in a holiday in Vietnam and Laos.
