My wife, daughter and myself cannot say enough about how wonderful a trip we had, how great this travel company - in particular our travel agent was from the beginning of our interest in the tour, helping us develop a fascinating and thorough schedule and, what was really impressive, was staying in touch with us throughout the journey to ensure we were doing ok. My wife and I have traveled the world both on business and pleasure and our 8 year old daughter, adopted at 13 months from China, has been now to 19 countries all over Europe and the Caribbean. We routinely stay at 5 star hotels and have used travel agencies before. But our travel company was by far...the best we have been with. And I can say unequivocally that this was due to our agent and the team he developed and had worked with us.
All of the guides we worked with were terrific. As we have told others who have asked us about the trip, that it exceeded in so many ways our expectations: travel was super, food was great - all types of great food from throughout the world, English was not a problem, the hotels meet or exceed international standards both in quality and hospitality, safety is not a problem, and the countries/cities themselves are unbelievable...well beyond our expectations having not traveled there in decades (I'm a Vietnam vet...very different back then) and my wife, having visited Hanoi on business several years ago...definitely wanted to go back.
There were so many...from our Hanoi visit, staying at the hotel there, having Xmas dinner in downtown Hanoi, having dinner with a local family that were wonderful, eating at first class restaurants in Hanoi, visiting the market place there...the stay in Hue...unbelievable...culture-wise, accommodations, countryside, etc, etc. And then there was the trip down to Hoi An, traveling through Hai Van Pass...seeing the development in Danang that was remarkable from my past experiences...truly unbelievable. then Hoi An, which we had heard from friends that it was a must visit place but surpassed everything we had heard.
