My husband and I arranged for a 9 day travel tour in Viet Nam traveling from Hanoi, through Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hoi An and Ho Chi Minh City. In every city, we got service with a smile. Our drivers were experienced, cars clean and pleasant to ride in; our guides knowledgeable and eager to attend to any requests.
We took this trip for our family of 5, our agent David was very nice and helpful, he guided us through the entire trip, every evening he was checking how our day was and leaving the notes for the next day activities. Our older son had a birthday during the trip and the cake in our hotel in Hanoi was a nice surprise. Our favorite part was Ba Vi tour, it was very educational and had a perfect balance of activities. And Halong Bay cruise was just terrific! We will visit this place again for sure.
I cannot say enough about Vietnam Tour Fun, we lovely time in the countryside with our guide Minah; fantastic time in Hoi An with guide Huan and Mr Leo in Ho Chi Minh City. Our travel consultant – Dat was so thorough, all transportation were on time. Any changes to our itinerary was done promptly and always responded quickly.
