Me and my wife took this trip in January. It was very well planned and we enjoyed it a lot. We have started with Hanoi, where we went to the countryside, the guide was very nice, it was lovely to meet the veteran and learn cooking the Vietnamese meals. The cruise was a highlight of our trip. Our hotel in Hanoi was clean. We enjoyed visiting Pu Luong, it was interesting to spend the time, the people there were very nice, but I would recommend to visit it in spring or summer time when it is warmer and the rice terraces are not empty. Our hotel in Hue was one of the best we stayed and the tour was very interesting, we also liked the meals in this city. Our drive to Hoi An was safe, our driver was very professional. The tour with boating and fishing in Hoi An was the best tour during the trip, and the lunch was fantastic! Siem Reap was very warm comparing to Vietnam during our trip. Angkor Wat tour involved lots of walking, but what we saw worth it, it was really nice to watch the sunset from the top of the hill. Our travel advisor Minah was very polite and communicated with us a lot. She was very patient to answer all our questions before the trip, and we were asking her a lot things. It is pity that Vietnam Tour Fun serves only a few countries in Asia, as we would be happy to book with them more trips.
