"We had enjoyed our stay in Vietnam. "

Nothing, is only the train ride not comfortable. Angel Palace hotel 21 Dec room is good. 23rd Dec room is no good, no window, no slippers, no toilet paper. Staffs are friendly. Anyway is ok. I am surprised 3 star hotel without slippers and toilet papers. Hi Vana, thank you for the tour arrangement. Wish you A Merry Christmas.

"Good at all"

Kenny and Marcus were excellent guides and we had a very good overall experience. There was a mix up with the tour today and my friend with the bad knees found the trek difficult. Kenny was good, however we thought we were going on the shorter walk

"interesting tour"

We had a pleasant/interesting tour.
Everything was very good and we had a great time. The two things that was a little less good was:
-At the Gondola hotel we had a nice big room but they must have had a leak in the walls. You could see on the wall and it smelled of mold.
-The guide at Sapa showed us some great places but he wasnt talking/telling us so much.

Asked by Heather Yakam Wayyas Chugsayan, August 28, 2019
Good afternoon. I just booked the North Vietnam at a Glance: Halong bay & Sapa 5 days - Departure 14 Sep 2019 I have 2 questions by the way: 1) My flight to Hanoi will be on the 14th of September, at 1455, ETA 1725. I've reviewed the itinerary for the first day, I was just wondering where your agency will be picking me up since I won't be checking in a hotel as our schedule states that we will be boarding the night train at 2000. 2) I know we'll be moving around a lot, so is it recommended that we have small luggages instead of big ones? Or can I bring a big luggage if you have safe places to store them in everywhere we go? (I don't travel light that's why I'm asking?
Heather Yakam Wayyas Chugsayan, August 28, 2019
Hi Thank you so much for your kind sending a question I am pleased to inform you the following information: 1. We pick up at the hotels located in Hanoi Old Quarter, if you arrive on 14 Sep and do not have the hotel, we can arrange the Airport pick-up and a room at the hotels close to Hanoi Train Station with extra charge, then we pick you up you from that hotel to take you to cabin on the train 2. Please bring all luggage with you, and we have the safe place to store them in both Sapa and Halong Bay Cheers
