Our 14 day Vietnam Cultural Highlights trip was most enjoyable. My husband and I decided to go only a week before departure. Minh Vu was incredibly attentive and professional planning our tour and went over and above when it was touch and go as to whether our Visa would come through in time. He made contact via email throughout the trip to make sure everything was going smoothly.
We travelled with our own guide and driver which made the trip flexible and to suit our requirements. The guides had very good English and shared their great knowledge at all times along the journey.
Jayden, our guide in the south was so positive and enthusiastic given the grim history of the American war he shared with us through Ho Chi Minh City and the Mekong Delta. We had our best bowl of Pho for the trip at a local restaurant he recommended.
Steve, our guide in Central Vietnam had an incredible knowledge about the Kings. The history was fascinating. He was very caring and attentive when our flight was delayed due to heavy rain. We had the best Bahn Mi of the trip from a street side shop in Hoi An bought by Steve.
Our third guide, Long, in the north was so interesting with his knowledge and explanations about places and history. He was flexible with our itinerary when we were delayed with no issues at all. He was chatty and friendly on our longer drives to Ninh Binh and Ha Long Bay. We loved our food tour through the old town of Hanoi with Long.
The highlights of our trip were:
1. Our cooking class at Jessica’s Kitchen in Hoi An.
2. The food and boat trip in Ha Long Bay with the spectacular surroundings 3. The row boat trip at Ninh Binh through the caves in such a magical setting.
The hotels chosen by Minh were all of an excellent standard and each one had its own special features.
The staff at Victoria in Hoi An, La Sinfonia in Hanoi and La Siesta in Ho Chi Minh were particularly friendly and attentive.
The Vietnamese people were so friendly and helpful everywhere we went and always had a smile.
Our only downside was a lunch in Ninh Binh which wasn’t very good and my husband became unwell after eating there. It was a standard meal given to all travel groups.
We loved our trip and would highly recommend using Indochina Voyages for their level of professionalism and personal care and planning.
