What our clients from South Africa say about our Vietnam tour Packages

I must really compliment S Vietnam Travel, and particularly Tina for their professionalism.I only paid a deposit. Balance was paid on arrival. All hotels were 5 star as per our requirements. There is nothing to complain about. In Saigon, we were removed off our flight due to a page being torn in my wifes passport. We were lost, and my only means of communication was via email. Tina replied almost immediately and sent Miss Loanne, who spent almost 6 hours with us visiting both the South African Embassy and Cambodian Embassy, and taking us back to the airport and ensuring that we were boarded onto our flight. She waited till we cleared security. All this free of charge. This was absolutely remarkable. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to anyone for travel. They are beyond excellent.

From making all the arrangements, to choosing exceptional guides and making sure everything fell into place as timed. We loved every minute of the tour. Thank you for making this such a memorable stay. Sean and Mary-Louise Pope
