Excellent vacation, well-organized!

Janet from Bestprice Travel booked our HaLong Bay tour on the Doris ship. She arranged for our luxury bus to and from HaLong Bay and continuously communicated with us, informing us of where we needed to be and when. She ensured that everything went well.
I highly suggest Bestprice (and Janet) for booking Vietnam tours.

Great experience

There are so many cruises to visit Halong Bay that it's tough to pick the best one. And without Janet from BestPrice Travel, the decision would have been even more difficult.
The two-day tour with Doris Cruise exceeded our expectations. The implementation was flawless, as were the directions for transportation and activities. Janet, thank you for everything.
