We had a 10 days tour that includes Hanoi, Hoi An, Hue and HCM (Mekong Delta). Hoang is a great Tour operator. I asked a lot of questions and he explained the details to ease my doubt. In the original itinerary there was a bike ride in Hoi An. Since my wife don't bike, Hoang changed it to a motorbike tour for her without additional charge. The tour guides are great. They know the local sightseeing spots well. Occasionally helped us to shop in market and recommended restaurants for dinner.
We enjoyed the egg coffee in Hanoi, Bun Bo Hue and balcony dinner in HCM....
Jackie took a picture of us with a group of graduating HS senior in Imperial Citadel of Thang Long. He spoke with the students and we just did a photo bomb :-)
Quang took us to a street vendor of Bun Bo Hue and the shop owner let us took a picture behind the kitchen. We also had
We had a later flight in HCM. Thach took us for a tour in China Town (not in the original itinerary) in the morning. He stayed with us until 2pm when the driver dropped us of at the airport.
Great tour guides and tour operator Hoang who took care of us very well.
The only thing is the hotel in HCM. The staff are great and helpful. But the room conditions are somehow below average. If I knew, I rather pay more to upgrade.
All in all it was a great trip. I was talking about the trip with my colleagues all morning during the first day of work.
