Mr. Anh was very informative and gave us a great tour of Saigon. Food, transportation, and all other service were excellent. English very good.

Pam McKinnon, Australia

Our guide is excellent - spoke very good English, gave a lot of information about the tour and Vietnam. He has a very good sense of humour. He was flexible to meet the group's needs. Our driver was very safe and looked after the passages.

Robin John, Canada

We love Vietnam. The country is beautiful and the people welcoming. Mr. Giang was very knowledgeable and a delight to know. Mr. Tiem was an excellent driver and we arrived to Hanoi and back in heavy traffic without incident. We would definitely use STS again. Everything was delightful and made us appreciate the people of Vietnam, the countryside and also the government and the way the country is run. Mr. Ha was very knowledgeable and helped us have a wonderful day in spite of the rain. We were all pleased with our day in Danang and Hoian. Vietnam is so beautiful and interesting. Read more
