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,
