What travelers say

  • Marloes
    Ago 2014

    It was very nice to meet you in Hanoi.

    Thank you very much for the wonderful trip we made. It was great! Halongbay and Sapa we loved it.

    Hoian was so nice, I never thought that before. Also the biketour was very nice with the fisherman’s boats.

    Hoian Boutique hotel was very nice too, it was my favourite hotel.

    Nha Trang, we liked the islands with the waterparks and my husband and sons made a dive.

    All the 5 star hotels were very good. In all the hotels we had an upgraded room. In Nha Trang we had 2 rooms with Jacuzzi on the balcony.

    Saigon with the chi chi tunnels was also a new experience.

    All drivers with tourleaders where on time, we never had to wait. Everything was well organized and very relaxed.

    Really we enjoyed us very much and I hope to sent a lot of new clients to Vietnam.

    We loved Vietnam.
