I am glad that I booked my honeymoon trip thru you, this was my first experience and let me tell u it was good one. Cruise and Phu Quoc is great for honeymoon couple.
You done a good work! We had a good trip. Thank you!
This tour is perfect way to explore the best beaches in Vietnam. Phu Quoc was so amazing with snorkerling and fishing. Highly recommend you to choose Vietnam Tour Fun for your next trip. They know how to make the pickiest travellers smile.
Every day in this 11-day trip was so much fun. The way Vietnam Tour Fun designed their trip was intelligent and consistent. However, the way of contacting to the person in charge was quite limited. It’s much easier if I had a local sim card to connect. They have managed to contact me in a polite and timely manner. I will prepare a local sim card for next trips with Vietnam Tour Fun.
