Hello Linda


We are home and now back at work here in Australia.


Thank you so much for the kind hospitality from you, your staff , the driver and out tour guide.


Allan and I had a terrific tour of northern Vietnam.

We loved every part of holiday, especially Bio Gioc falls. 


Allan and I felt relaxed from the minute we were picked from our hotel to start our tour.


Our tour was fantastic. , the scenic drive throughout our journey was breath taking. We loved the little villages, seeing locals in the rice fields and meeting locals in the restaurants. A new experience for us and one we will remember forever.

We loved the Be Ba lake, our boat trip on the lake, the cave and off the course the lovely home stay. The home stay was basic, but very comfortable. I would love to return to this home stay and stay longer. So relaxing and very quiet. What Allan and I both needed.

We loved  Bio Gioc falls, a place that is so breathtaking, tranquil and beautiful. My favourite scenic view in whole of Vietnam. The drive was well worth it and once again an relaxing experience just sitting back and having a lovely person drive us. Our driver was a lovely man, you could tell he thought safety first, cause he was very caution and drove to the conditions. We stopped and took many photo’s on the way and he made shall he parked in a safe place. As you are aware, he drove for many hours, but still managed to clean the vehicle inside and out at every arrival point. He was a gentleman, that smiled continuously and always opened the car door for me.  

I think his highlight was when Allan and I tried talking to him in Vietnamese.


Our tour guide, absolutely fantastic. So much knowledge, so interesting to talk to and we all had a good laugh together.

I loved the restaurants we visited and the food fantastic. Our tour guide made sure we always tried something different and encouraged us to eat alot. Allan liked his cold beers, so our tour guide even made sure Allan would have a cold beer. 

All the sights we visited he had loads of knowledge  regarding the area. Ca Bang he visited the markets with us. We loved this area, due to not many western people. We had many young locals trying to speak English to us, so they could improve on their English.


The hotel in Hanoi, we loved, nice comfortable bed and very clean. The staff were friendly and I loved the location.


Linda, I’ve attached a few photo’s of us on our trip.  The ones of our tour guide can you please forward to them. 

Does your company have Facebook, cause I would love to post some photos on your site.

I’ve given your information to many people whom have seen my photo’s so hope you receive some business from us.

Thanks alot for the service, your team are so professional. We plan to visit Vietnam again in the next 5 years, so I will book our next trip with you. Till then, please take care and if you ever visit Perth WA, please contact me cause I would love to take you sightseeing in my area.

I ahve a few photo’s to send, so you may receive a few emails.
