It’s a fantastic tour, superbly planned and covering the most exciting experiences. It combines some days in the capital, Hanoi, with relaxing countryside, cruise and plenty of leisure time on the beaches well as in-depth insight into the history and culture of the country. It’s unbelievable that all this is packed in mere 8 days. Throughout the journey we always felt secure and well looked after, all the departure times etc. were known in advance, the guides were knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and the hosts were just incredible! On the day when we were scheduled to go to Co To Island there were no boats due to rough weather conditions, and Vietnam Tour Fun acted promptly, allocating us to a hotel, arranging all the transfers etc. within a mere half hour! We are really impressed. It’s our first experience is Vietnam, and by no means the last one. We look forward to coming back very soon.
