A brilliant trip organised for us by the Vietnam Tour Company

We found this company on the internet and right from the start we were impressed by the attention to detail , so decided to use them. We chose a private tour ' Impressive of Vietnam' and travelled from 14th to 29th March 2018. We arrived in Hanoi at 5am in the morning, where the charming Mr Trong collected us and guided us thought the first few days in Hanoi. Wonderful. After this we flew to Hue, Danang, Nha Trang,Dalat, Saigon . all the guides were wonderful and all the trips ,tours and shows were just great. Most of our food was included which was a very interesting experience. I would highly recommend this tour.
