Recommend for everyone!

It was a nice experience. BestPrice Travel's Ms. Anna was really responsive, courteous, and helpful. She took care of the trip from start to finish, even helping me communicate with the driver who picked us up in Hanoi, which was quite useful for me as a foreigner who doesn't know Vietnamese. I will definitely use BestTravel again!
