Hi Thuy,

We are back in Australia. We are really excited with our trip with Asiatica Travel, which has allowed us to discover Vietnam off the beaten track.

The program was rich and varied with visits on foot or by boat and bicycle to explore the countryside. The pace of the trip was well balanced except for the trip to the Central where the itinerary has been slightly modified.
During day 9 in Hue, there was only the rickshaw ride and a visit to the Imperial City but it has been extended to 10 days, which was a bit loaded.
In Hoian on day 12, we took a bike ride to the countryside and had a very well return to the hotel at 14h.
The hotels were carefully selected, near the center for nightlife and really comfortable.
We enjoyed Moon View Hotel in Hanoi, Hotel Qeen in Ninh Binh, Sunny Mountains in Sapa, the hotel Thuy Duong3 in Hoian, La Jolie Saïgon. The staff was amiable and provided hearty breakfasts.
The simplest hotel might be that of Bac Ha, the Congfu hotel. The breakfast there was very light.
In the tour program, we enjoyed the cruise in Halong bay with the evening and night on the boat very much. The meals were very good and staffs were friendly. The visiting to the caves of Trang An, the colorful market BacHa, bike rides in the countryside with a stop at the craftsmen and the Mekong Delta with complex arroyos system were also memorable.
The cooking class was highly appreciated.
A very well organized trip.
Our guides, Tien in the North and in the south with Mr Hai, were very helpful and knowledgeable.
We will not hesitate to give the name of your agency to our friends.
