This trip by far exceeded anything I thought it would be. It was great to meet people from around the world and to have enough freedom in each place to do what you liked but with just enough structure to make it hassle free.

Extremely impressed by the overall organization and by the spotless experience. I was expecting only a partially organized tour with some sort of guide to act mainly as point of reference. With my great surprise instead the tour was planed to the slightest detail and the guide was hyper efficient and extremely helpful. I would have never expected such a 'spotless service'

I was a bit nervous about 'going a tour' as I had always travelled independently, but it was my first time in Asia and I was very happy with the tour. I felt I saw a lot of things and gained local insights I would otherwise not have had access to. The tour was a mix of planned and optional activities and there was plenty of time for independent sightseeing.

Just returned from the splendid "Best of Vietnam" tour from Jan 4-18. It was full of exotic experiences, including both high adventure and tranquil moments. We met the locals, visited monuments, learned history, viewed sublime vistas, and most of all got to know the Vietnamese culture. This was all facilitated by our wonderful guide, Dat Le. He orchestrated the trip in his meticulous style, yet provided us with enough freedom to make it exciting. He introduced us to a couple of highlights I hadn't anticipated a) several modes of transportation through the trip and b) the delectable food. All in all, a 10 out of 10 vacation, with a group of travellers who were 100% excellent.

The more we look back on the trip, the more we realize how awesome it was. Getting our photos back helped as well. We covered a lot of ground in a little time but our goal was to see as much as we could in two weeks - so glad we followed it with nine days on the beaches in Thailand. I have to say, it wasn't what we expected, but not in a bad way. It takes a long time to recuperate after thirty years of war. I'm glad we saw it now - before it becomes too westernized (though some traffic manners would be nice!) The trip was so diverse and we did some things out of our comfort zone, which is always a good thing.

I enjoyed the tour from start to end. Unlike many tours you were not stuck to your guide and group at all times. There was lots of free time to enjoy your holiday alone but the guide and group where always there when we wanted to socialise.

Our tour guide, Ha Hien Hoai, G Adventures tour leader, was EXCELLENT! Was a warm human being, so attentive and caring and made each one of us feel special. He certainly knew his country and gave us so many details. Our trekking days were so incredible with his expertise. The hotels were wonderful, the food and restaurants all wonderful, the people, transportation, nothing but wonderful memories. I would recommend this tour to everyone who wants to experience Vietnam.

We were lucky to have such a good leader. We are in our sixties and were slightly anxious about some of the walking but, Lap -our tour leader, was very supportive at all times. We did things we had not thought we would be able to manage and enjoyed it.

The Best of Vietnam tour was an amazing journey into the lives, culture and customs of a very beautiful country & its people. The diversity that we experienced in the different locations that we visited was awe inspiring. From the mountain tribes in Sapa to the city lifestyle in Saigon, I was constantly amazed. I have so much admiration for this small country & its people, having a long history of war & violence, yet still they smile & make travellers feel very welcome.
