What our clients from US & Canada say about our Vietnam tour Packages
My wife and I had been to Vietnam before an wanted a new and different experience from previously. We had enjoyed our previous journey but did not want to do it over. Also we wanted to add a week or so in both Cambodia and Laos, and some "down time" mixed in with all the travel. This was all organized meticulously and the mixture of locations and events suited us perfectly. We happened to be in SaPa on the coldest days in many years. It was quite an adventure and a unique way to see the rice fields and villages. I won't list our extensive itinerary. Suffice to say we had a night train ride, a cruise, toured numerous national parks, rode a water buffalo, traveled by boat between Vietnam and Cambodia, and many other delightful things. We traveled privately with a driver and guide, were met on our arrival at each new location and delivered safely to our train / boat / plane on departure. Our guides were wonderful and we have made lifelong (I hope) friendships. As I said we have been to Vietnam before, but we enjoyed this trip immensely and hope to return quite soon. If we go anywhere in SE Asia we will certainly include Vietnam in our travels and will most certainly use S Vietnam Travel as our tour organizer.

We were 2 Americans travelling through Vietnam/Cambodia in November, 2017 and Tina with S. Vietnam Travel did a phenomenal job with it! Everything was utterly flawless. Every airport pickup/drop off, guide, hotel, tour, plane, train and automobile was on time, well educated, well executed, well located, etc.... I cannot say enough good things about it! We did Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hoi An, Hue, Saigon and Siem Reap. Highly recommended! One of the best trips I've taken, and Vietnam/Cambodia were countries #64 and 65 for me! GREAT job, Tina!
