Our Client Testimonials From Usa & Canada
My wife, her friend and I traveled for 30 days through Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos in January / February 2016. We had a wonderful time which included some very original components which made the tour all the more memorable.
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.
The day tours were truly excellent and varied and we enjoyed very single one. Among the highlights were, Halong Bay Cruise, Phong Nha – Ke Bang national park, Hoian – Farmer to fisherman eco tour, Luang Prabang – half day to local villages, and Phonsavan - Plain of jars. There were the other standard tours and Temples but for us the ntryside outside Hanoicountryside and the people were the highlight of the trip.
