A good way to travel alone

I totally enjoyed this trip. Traveling alone's never a problem when there's always a wonderful tour like this. I've never focused on finding a tour at a super cheap price. This tour wasn't the cheapest option I saw, but it's still so reasonable. I booked the lowest standard, but the service was much better than my expectation. Thanks a lot, I'll book again with you guys.

A trip of foodie

It's a wonderful experience for 4 foodie like us. We all love cuisine experiences and taste new flavors. All of us gain weight after this trip throughout Vietnam (of course) as we eat whenever we see something look tasty. However, with a long food tour like this we hope that there will be more local meals included in the itinerary so we can experience more.

A well-organized 13-day tour

The tour was wonderful and well-organized. The tour guides were so friendly and supportive, always answering my question. I love the hotels, although I only booked a 2-star tour, my rooms were amazing, they were elegant and cozy, totally over my expectation. Thanks, Ms. Moon for such a perfect tour to Vietnam, I'll book with you again.

Unforgettable Christmas Vacation

It's an amazing tour. Even though I had to pay more for the Christmas surcharge, it's worth it. My kids love the food - that's the most wonderful thing and we all enjoy the Christmas dinner at our hotel with excellent food and perfect service. The experience at Tra Que Village was also interesting and… More

Sirs, We were booked in with you prior to Covid. You graciously refunded our deposits due to covid when we asked, and were wonderful to work with! I told you then that we would be booking again with you when all the covid issues were over. You were a VERY Honorable company to do business with and we want to do our tour only through you! I believe it it time. We are looking to book your food tour of Vietnam, private tour, June 11, to 23, 2023. We are a group of 3 for now, but may grow to a group of 7. As I recall, when doing the tour as a private tour we can change a few things around to our desire, such as adding an extra night on Hanlong Bay, or eliminating one day not looking interesting to us. I am starting to communicate with my group and ready to begin communicating with you to begin planning!

@Jon Trulsson:

Great to hear you will travel to Vietnam next year and we are very happy you still rememeber us. We will send you the trip plan (similar with your last option) via email.
