My husband & I and our 2 children (13 and 15) just returned from a wonderful tour of Vietnam, organised by Miss Anna from Vietnam Great Tours. Starting with the standard itinerary, Anna worked with me to incorporate more things that suited us, and remove some things that didn’t. The result was a perfect tour, which incorporated the normal touristy temple things, but also wonderful experiences, such as cooking classes and lantern making. The guides were, without exception, polite, efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. My 13yo is vegetarian, and the lengths the hotels, restaurants and cruises went to to provide her with a range of beautifully cooked suitable food was well above and beyond our expectations.
Our tour incorporated HCMC, the Mekong Delta cruise, HoiAn, Ha Noi, Ninh Binh and Halong Bay. All were different and offered us a variety of experiences. The bicycle rides we had along the way were the best – especially along the Mekong Delta and Ninh Binh.
At the end of our tour, Miss Anna even came to our hotel to meet with us, and to give us some souvenirs. This is my first ever review on Trio Advisor – sign enough that I can’t speak highly enough of Vietnam Great Tours!
