Excellent - Mr.Wacleus

Booked a trip to Ha Long Bay with BestPrice Travel for February 2023. Despite some minor hiccups in the quotation, Hannah from the sales team was very responsive to our inquiry during the planning stage and provided us with some alternatives right away. Tom, the tour guide, has been really entertaining… More

it was the best trip so far in my life.

Every went smoothly.
The cruise, crew and the weather was amazing. I'm so going to promote the trip to my colleagues at work.

Very good - Ms. Elaine Strassburg,
Were wonderful!!!

All of the hotels and staff were wonderful!!! The rooms and food were very good and the staff very friendly and helpful. In particular, the staff at An Hung who helped with my lost luggage.
Tours: I’ve already informed you of the tours in Hanoi, Sapa and Halong. All guides were very friendly but you… More

However, in summary, the tour guides have the opportunity to provide so much information on your country and, in general, both the amount of information and ability to speak fairly good English could be improved. I’d give the earlier tours a 4 and the others a 7-8.
I’ve already mentioned the problems with kayak, schedule and restaurant.

An amazing experience.

An amazing experience. The highlight of this trip was the overnight cruise on Glory Legend, Halong Bay. Food was excellent and the staff were amazing. Vana Pham at Best Price Travel was the best. Nothing was too much trouble for her. I had to change my itinerary a few times and it all went very smoothly. Thank you Vana. I would highly recommend using Best Price Travel.

Great time

I had a great time wondering around the Old Quarter and would definitely stay at the Hanoi Boutique Hotel again. It's in a great location.
