Questions & Answers (2)

Ask a Question
I do have a few questions: 1. Once we land in Hanoi, Vietnam, is there going to be someone to pick us up from the airport to the hotel? 2. The "First Class" option that we chose, does it cover all accommodation and what dates is it covered from? 3. For the train trip, my GF and I want to get a private room how can we avail this? Is it not included/part of the "First Class" deal? 4. How are payments made to you? 5. If we decide to cancel the booking, how do we get guarantee of reimbursement? 6. Can payments be made to you in person with a credit card? 7. What date is the first day of this 8 days itinerary? Looking forward to hearing from you! Thank you!
Dear Mark Joseph Tope Trinos, For your question please find my answer below: 1. Our trip included airport pick up so when you arrive the driver will wait for you at the airport. 2.
