Outstanding 12 days in Vietnam! We received several emails from Zicasso affiliated travel companies but this travel agency was the only one that followed up with emails to gauge our interest. We asked our agent to send us a basic itinerary and over the next six weeks or so we went back and forth adding a day or two as we fine tuned the itinerary. Each time we asked for a change to the schedule, our agent gladly changed things up for us. We traveled from Hanoi to Halong Bay, Hue, Hoi An and finally Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City). We had a personal guide and driver for each of the 3 regions we travelled. All the guides spoke fine English and answered our questions happily. We made it clear as we met each guide that we wanted them to be honest with us about their country and with any questions about the U.S. This led to some fascinating discussions and experiences. Vietnam is a beautiful country and great value. We are very happy for the full schedule that our travel agent provided for us and look to return in the future.
Hanoi was the highlight for me. The people were curious to speak with westerners and genuinely thrilled when they found out we were from the U.S. It seemed like when one person found out where we were from, then everyone wanted to step up and say hello. Our hotel was perfectly situated across the street from the Hoan Kiem Lake. The staff of our hotel all greeted us by name every time we entered or exited the building and could not have been more friendly. Our guide took us to local places to grab a bite, where there was no other tourists in sight. (A big plus for me) The old quarter in Hanoi was an incredible mixture of sight, sound and smells. Sitting down to grab a beer one evening at a family-run spot on the street, led to the daughter taking our picture and minutes later she showed us that we were on the business' Facebook page! I can't wait to go back again!
We were on the go every day. Jamming so much into 12 days was exhausting. We would definitely schedule an off day or two to relax, the next time.
