Some of our recent reviews & update 2014
Since the launch of Vietnam Tours, hundreds of customers have travelled to Vietnam with our short Vietnam tours or our Vietnam holidays and have come back smiling. Here is a snippet of the fantastic feedback that we have received from our returning travellers, and we're constantly updating this page to squeeze in the positive comments as they come our way.
As a small, ethical company, we really do listen to the feedback of our customers. This means that we regularly update and review the accommodation and the activities that we offer in order to give you the best Vietnam holiday we possibly can.
Colin from US – Vietnam Tours – April 2014
The tour was excellent, and went off with hardly a hiccup.
The standard of accommodation was higher than I expected and was uniformly very good. Some of the properties were notable – we particularly enjoyed the hotel in Hoi An, and in Hue where we stayed at the Beach resort. Both had real character and were excellent choices. I really appreciated the locations of all the hotels, being convenient to the action yet quiet – even in Hanoi!
Local guides were all good, with special mention to our guides in Saigon and in Hanoi who were professional, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Drivers were all helpful and importantly, safe.
Vehicles were all good considering the difficult conditions that they operate under.
The program was varied and interesting throughout, with a good balance of organized activities and some free time. We all particularly enjoyed the boat trip in the Mekong Delta, and to the fishing village out of Nha Trang very much, and of course Hoi An and Halong Bay.
Overall, a very good tour indeed, that surpassed my expectations. I will recommend this tour, and Vietnam Tours, without hesitation to anyone seeking a similar experience.
Tristan and Rick from the UK – Vietnam – February 2014
Thank you for following up with us after our trip. We have been home about 3 weeks - Rick returned with me for 3 weeks before heading back to Vietnam just the other day.
How do I begin to describe the amazing experiences we had? First of all, the unexpected "private tour" was the adventure of a lifetime. We had the expertise and personality of the various guides all to ourselves. Rick, a writer and history fanatic, especially enjoyed the undivided attention of the guides.
We so appreciated that Vietnam Tours ran the trip with just the two of us.
Each city on the trip offered such culture, history and beauty. I can't say that I had a favorite place because I enjoyed each and every one thoroughly.
I could go on and on about all the wonderful experiences we had. Most importantly, we were extremely pleased with what Vietnam Tours delivered. Thanks to everyone who contributed to making our Vietnam Luxury Package a trip of a lifetime.
Suzanne from the Australia – Highlights of Vietnam & Cambodia- January 2014
I wanted to drop you a line and thank you for the most wonderful adventure that my daughter and I took in January to Asia. We especially want to compliment Phuong for his dedication, ability, thoughtfulness, and always being there to help and assist his tour members. He did an A+ job and never let anyone down, was always there with a smile, an answer, and always keeping us informed of what the next day’s adventure held for us.
The trip overall was superior and it amazed me to see that each hotel, each flight, each meal was so well thought out and planned. It seemed like Vietnam Tours had thought about everything and planned accordingly. We were all able to relax and enjoy the ride! I particularly came away with so many good and positive memories and I haven't stopped thinking about all the wonderful people we met in Siem Reap, Saigon, Hanoi and Luang Prabang. Your choice of cities, towns or areas to visit was excellent! Thankfully I took many digital photos so I'm able to look back and re-live the trip.
Tom & Maria, United States, private vacation to Vietnam - October 2013
Just wanted to let you know that we got back safe, sound and very glad that we entrusted Vietnam Tours with our special trip. I want to thank you for all your help which made a significant difference.
We did indeed have a private trip with an amazing guide until we flight home.
Having the guide with us worked out great as he handled everything just like (if not better) than the local guide on our Vietnam trip. Add to that his insight and passion into the history of his country, his presentations and stories, his special care to insure we were comfortable and happy, ability to gage exactly how long we needed to be in each place, what we in particular would like to expand or skip and even knowing what would thrill us even without asking. He went way far and above what was described in the itinerary.
The driver was even more amazing. How anyone could drive over there is beyond me. He also went far and above normal. He cared about is personally. An example of that was coming back at night to drive us to a restaurant that we had a reservation at that he was concerned about us getting there on our own and then waiting for quite some time until we finished to take us back to the hotel. He kept us smiling throughout.
I am now starting a campaign to write reviews on the internet telling the rest of the world how great Vietnam Tours is. I will never doubt you guys again and pledge to not even consider anyone else when we plan on going to anyplace VT can take us.
By the way, Vietnam was an amazing place. I do not even have words to describe what we saw and did properly. We will return in a few years.
Mr and Mrs Heppner, Canada, Tailor-made vacation to Vietnam - April 2013
Just wanted you to know that Lusia and I had the best trip ever to Cambodia and Vietnam! Everything was perfect. Sadly, we had to cut our Halong Bay Cruise short one day because a typhoon was coming but they immediately took us back to Hanoi and upgraded us to a fabulous suite. At least we got one night on board, it was sad to leave but we managed to do most of our activities that first day on the boat...bike riding, kayaking in and out of caves, tai chi on deck, cooking class and several fabulous meals. Once again, thank you. Would highly recommend Vietnam Tours to anybody!!!!
Gail, India - Highlights of Vietnam - April 2013
Our trip to Vietnam was fantastic, one of the best trips I've had. Vietnam Tours was very well organized all the way. We were blessed with a great guide (Hue) who was extremely helpful, kind and patient. . We always stopped at clean toilets and wonderful restaurants and great hotels.
There was a good balance of touring, shopping, resting, free time, group time, eating with the team, eating where you want to. I loved Halong Bay, Saigon, Mekong Delta, Hoi An, Vietnamese food, water puppets etc. I would certainly travel with them again and highly recommend this company. They met us at the airport and arranged our return to the airport. Thanks for your help.
Damon, UK - Vietnam Trip- April 2013
Had a great time. Our tour guide Long, was fantastic. Logistics were always handled with speed and poise, and she was wonderful about preparing us for each morning/afternoon of the tour. Definitely added to the positive experience.
All in all, I was surprised at how developed the country is, as well as how friendly and willing to help the locals were at the hotels and restaurants.
Overall, solid trip. Looking forward to another Vietnam trip in the near future. Thanks again for all your help.
Mr & Mrs Galvan, United States - Highlights of Vietnam - March 2013
we had a great trip. It was a good primer on Vietna,. The tour guide Huan was extremely efficient, knowledgeable and guided the tour activities professionally. The local guides were also excellent. We also have no complaints about the hotels, some of which were extremely excellent. Only comment is for them to all have water available daily. We now feel as if we could return to Vietnam independently, using Vietnam Tours to assure transfers internal flights and accommodations as necessary. And there is a fair chance that we will return with a focus on specific National Parks to photograph wildlife.
Diane & family, United States - Cambodia & Vietnam Explorer - February 2013
I just wanted to write and let you know that we had a fabulous time on our trip to Cambodia and Vietnam. The countries were so interesting to visit and the itineraries were very well planned. Our tour guide, Linh, was excellent at previewing our stops and giving us all the information we needed to feel comfortable. She was also great at finding fabulous restaurants and ordering lots of yummy food for us to try. Additionally, we had a really fun guide to travel with.
Vietnam Tours is high on our list when we consider our next Asia trip.
Bob & friends , United States - Highlights of Vietnam - February 2013
I am just back from my trip to Vietnam, reviewing my pictures, and yes, doing laundry.
What a great time we had! Thanks for your part in making the arrangements. Everything went just perfect including the visa.
I was so impressed with Vietnam Tours - from the organization to the accommodations to our guides, especially our Local guide Linh from Hanoi.
Thanks again! Maybe we can work on a Vietnam trip in the future.
