What a wonderful experience. We felt totally looked after from start to finish. All the guides we had really knew what they were talking about and we had the best time. Fanstatic
I would like to say thank to my friend to suggest me this tour with Vietnam Tour Fun. Everything was beyond my expectation from the start to finish. You will be my preferential agent over Southeast Asia. Thank you so much.
All of the tour guides were very knowledgable and enthusiastic. Hotels and restaurants were top notch and very accommodating of a food allergy. Locations of the hotels in Chiang Mai and Bangkok could be improved to be closer to the old cities. We suggest shortening the time in Chiang Mai to one day and increasing the time in Siem Reap. Overall, this is a very worthwhile vacation.
