My wife and I just returned from the vacation of a lifetime in Vietnam and can’t say enough good things about the trip that our tour planner and this travel company built for us. We were introduced to the travel team through a Zicasso referral, but initially were working with 2 other tour companies as well to build out our trip to Vietnam. We quickly noted how responsive our tour planner was to questions and requests and how quickly he’d provide an updated itinerary if we decide to make a tweak/add, so we determined to work with him.
After many revisions (driven by us) we ended up with an amazing itinerary. We began our vacation in Saigon, then off to the beaches in Danang, finally finishing up in Hanoi/Ha Long Bay. In Saigon/Ho Chi Minh City we stayed at an amazingly beautiful hotel. The planner had set us up with a wonderful guide to help make sure our stay was great. We started out with a Vespa tour of the city to taste local tour, and it was fantastic. I highly recommend it, the folks from Vespa tour company took great care of us and the food was delicious! The 2nd best part was the Speedboat trip to the Cu Chi Tunnels. The boat tour was relaxing, and visiting the tunnels was a good way to learn a little about the war.
Once we arrived in Danag we were greeted by our 2nd guide and we told him we were interested in getting suits made in Hoi An (a recommendation a fellow tourist shared the previous day). Our guide didn’t hesitate to add an extra stop to the plan, and we headed to Hoi An to get fitted for custom suits. Sounds fancy right? Compared to the prices in the US it’s a steal, and a really fun treat. We stayed at a hotel retreat in Danang, located on what used to be China Beach. The resort was gorgeous, and the beach was phenomenal (plus free daily massages). This was the most relaxed part of the trip, as we soaked up some sun but also had fun exploring the Ancient City of Hoi An.
The last leg of our tour took us to Hanoi, where we were greeted by our final guide. We spent one night in a hotel, which is also an absolutely beautiful hotel. We toured the city a bit, the availed ourselves of all the perks provided by the club in the hotel. The next morning, we headed off to Ha Long Bay and to our cabin on the junk boat. This was an overnight tour, and again, it was fantastic. The food and accommodations on the boat were great, drinks were included, and we had fun with all the planned excursions (e.g., kayaking, caving, and morning Tai Chi). Finally, we headed back to Hanoi to wait our midnight flight back home. Our guide took us on one last personal tour around the city to taste more local food and buy some souvenirs, finishing with a street side bar and sampling beer with locals. Perfect way to wind down the trip.
This was one of the best trips we’ve ever taken, and we are so thankful for this travel team for putting it together. Neither my wife or I had been to Vietnam, so we looked to our tour planner for a lot of recommendations (as well as finding all the tours and guides). The end result was amazing! So, thanks to this travel team and all the rest of the folks involved for sharing Vietnam with us and giving us such wonderful memories!
