    We want to thank you personally for all of your services which made this holiday a very memorable experience for us.

    We enjoyed ourselves very much !

    All of the transfers to/from hotels, airports and to the local sights were very good and always on time. The quality and size of your cars were also very good and comfortable. We also found our Guides and Drivers in North Vietnam, Central Vietnam and in the South all very good and polite. They were all careful drivers.

    Also a big thank you for the birthday cake, flowers and wine that your Guide & Driver gave to my wife on her birthday whilst we were in Ninh Binh.

    Congratulations on the complete service you provided us and we would recommend you to anyone who wants to visit Vietnam. We will also pass these compliments on to Travel Agent as well.

    Thank you again!
