I would like to thank you specially for organizing the tour so well and keeping us informed at every point.
The tour guide we had in each place were very friendly and knowledgeable.
Such a great tour would not have been possible without your hard-work and dedication.
I would definitely refer your organization to all my friends who want to visit Vietnam.
Thanks a lot again :)

Hi Giang, Thank you for touching base!
I'd love to give some feedback on the tour. Firstly, you have been absolutely extremely accommodating and very very helpful in this entire process start to finish! We will most definitely recommend you to our friends. We loved Sapa, though it was rainy and foggy it was a really lovely place...
In saying that, the Halong Bay tour was the best part of our trip so far! The boat upgrade was an absolute plus so thank you so much! The staff on the boat, Tom the tour guide, Quaong the Manager, the chef and the wait staff were absolutely phenomenal! The accommodations...
So thank you so much for an amazingly planned trip!
Best regrds,

Hi Ms Giang (and Ms Huong), Yen Pin and I have returned to Singapore earlier today. Thanks to you, our trip went pretty smoothly and we could relax knowing that our itinerary was well taken care of. We enjoyed our maiden trip to Vietnam-Sapa and Ha Long Bay are both really beautiful-and in the future we'll probably go back to explore other parts of the country that we've heard of from fellow travelers.
Thank you for all your help :).
Warmest regards,
