The trip was very well organized. Dat was available all the time to answer our questions and to help us during the trip. There are a few points to improve: – We were a little bit disappointed with the Tam Coc cycling, we only cycled on asphalt and for a short period, not what we were expecting. Maybe due to the rice fields being flooded. – The home-stay in Sapa was performed in Tavan Ecologic Homestay, which is more of a guest house than a home-stay (not a real daily life experience) – If we had the opportunity, we would change the schedule for the Phong Nha Cave, it takes 4 hours by bus each way, Apart from these points, the hotels selected were perfect, the transfer services were always on the scheduled time, and we got the chance to experience a lot of Vietnamese cultures, from north to south. The different tour guides throughout the trip were very friendly and informative. We will definitely recommend this tour, and will have Vietnam Tour Fun under the radar for any next holidays in south east Asia. Thank you so much for your great service.
Excellent tour. Everything was perfectly planned and the tour guides were always precisely on time.
Had a fantastic tour. No issues at all. All the guides An day tours were really good. Accomodation was good as were the included meals. I was contacted by Dat at Vietnam Tour Fun travel each evening to advise me of the pickup time for the tour the next day and when I decided to change one of the train trips to a flight this was organised with ease by Dat.
I was not sure how Vietnam tour Fun would perform with our tour, however they certainly exceeded my expectations. Everything happened as it was supposed to. The hotels were were good quality and well placed. All hotels provided breakfast with a range of food available. The side trips were interesting. I especially enjoyed the Ba Vi eco tour into the countryside and homes of local Vietnamese. The guides were very informative and I loved hearing about Vietnamese culture past and present. Vietnam Tour Fun organised drivers for all our hotel and airport transfers and every one turned up on time. If I had any queries during the trip, Dat responded quickly so we always knew what we were doing. I have no hesitation in recommending Vietnam Tour Fun for your trip to Vietnam.
