MS. KATE DAVIS, United States

In June 2015 I traveled to Vietnam with a group planning to visit Hanoi, Da Nang, and Ho Chi Minh City. We wanted as many varied experiences as possible - and Mr. Vinh happily obliged. He arranged everything for us and the trip was perfect! We spent several days in Hanoi in nice, but affordable accommodations and were able to explore the city and local environment. We traveled to the Mekong Delta and had a wonderful experience meeting local people and traveling by bicycle and motorbike as well as by boat. We spent 2 days and a night on a junk on Halong Bay with kayaking and swimming as our main activities. Da Nang and Ho Chi Minh City afforded even more adventures. Through it all, Mr. Vinh was available to us and had set an itinerary that allowed us to experience Vietnam in a way most travelers probably don’t. I highly recommend Mr. Vinh and his company for any trip you might plan to Vietnam. As a matter of fact, his services are one of the reasons you should plan a trip to Vietnam. You could not be in better hands! Read more

MR. STEFANO ROLANDO, Italy

Vinh, our tour leader: what can I say, I love traveling and my plan for a beautiful trip in South east area includes, of course, his experience! When I searched the internet for an independent tour company, I got in touch with him. My wife and me we were good surprised concerning planning, hotels and attractions Mr. Vinh suggested us after any email discussions in order to know better our ideas and life style I can’t recommend mr Vinh any more highly! If you happen to plan a visit in South East of Asia in any different angle, do not hesitate and give Mr. Vinh a call! Read more

June, United Kingdom

We would have no hesitation in recommending Mr. Vinh to all our friends and relatives. It was a memorable tour.
