We booked a 5 day tour as it included all tye spots we wanted to visit in the North of Vietnam and it seemed easier to do. We did not expect a lot of comfot as prices where lower than other tours, though this trip did not have a tourbus included but individual transport tickets. However we have been placed to be ger with severl other trips suring out tour makibg us meet nice new people each time and join other at the right moment. Every day eas packed with activities and nice guides and staff plus everything was arranged into the slightest detail during each pickup. Sometimes we worries as communication was not always easy with some of the parties they worked with (cab drivers ect), however it always turned out that really everythinh was thought of and we could alwaysvsemd a whatsapp to our main contact at any time. Additionaly all the trips we had, have been way more comfortable then expected; great hotels and cruises, meals, guides and activities. For sure a recommendation when you visit vietnam!

This company did a great job putting up with our numerous requests about different providers and then when we were in Hanoi it was a seamless white glove experience with great care to ensure we got to the train station and back with no worries. Their tours guides in Sapa and Halong were second to none!. We loved every minute of it!

Round trip from Hanoi> Sapa> Lao Chai > Sapa > Hanoi The agency did an outstanding job in arranging everything from booking the - train tickets, - guided climb to Mount Fansipan - tour guide (Sapa & Lao Chai), - all accommodation (2x night train, 1 homestay, 1 hotel), - meals (special request: vegan meals) - pickups & drop off (airport) Everything went so smooth that I didn't have to plan anything, perfect! If you look for an adventure while discovering the north of Vietnam this package works well for you! Would defiantly recommend it!
