Customer Reviews

Dear Diu, I would like to thank you for the perfect arrangement of the tour. Everything went smoothly. The guide and driver did their work to our satisfaction...
I especially want to say thank you for the recommendation of the overnight cruise of the Lan Ha Bay. The arrangement on board the cruise and the pick up after the cruise were extremely good. The scenery of Lan Ha Bay is beautiful. We were glad that we did not take the Halong Bay cruise...
Thanks again for the service. I hope I can require your service in future.
