Vietnam Discovery, June 2014
Covered most of the key VN highlights really well in the time allotted. Guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and took care of us all very well. Good pace, with several 2/3 nights stops in the one place as opposed to packing/unpacking everyday. Good traveling group.

Awesome trip with amazing experiences I will never forget! Nhung was the best tour leader, she got on well with everyone and looked after us all amazingly! She organised extra activities very well for us and always had our best intentions to heart. She is a lovely, friendly person and I will definitely keep in touch with her.
