A wonderful trip, and a wonderful country

Just wanted to say thank you for organising a wonderful trip for of Vietnam for us, we really enjoyed it all.

One of our favourite places was the Mai Chau Eco Lodge, would havebeen good to have another night there, as so relaxing and pretty part of the country.

Our guide in Hoi An was Luian , who was a wonderful guide and very knowledgeable and good understanding of English, she was a delight to show us around this area. Also Joseph in Saigon was very knowledgeable too

The drivers were amazing in all the areas and glad to put ourselves in their care.  All the cars were comfortable and well equipped with water and cold cloths throughout the trip.

We found the hotels all well equipped and enjoyed the tea/coffee making facilities in each room and also enjoyed having a pool at each hotel, being so hot this really helped in relaxing.  All the food at the hotels was enjoyable and a good variety of food.

As John mentioned to you, we only had to ask the Grand Silverland Hotel in Saigon for a larger room as the first night found the room very cramped, this they did without any fuss and made the next 3 nights much more enjoyable.

The cooking class run by Sabirama Cooking Tour & Restaurant was amazing and we had a very capable chef, Sam, she really made the experience a wonderful one.

Only thing – on Day 8: 17 April 2017, in your itinerary there was mention of seafood lunch before our drive back to Hanoi.  We didn’t get this, even though we weren’t hungry when we left Halong Bay, we were wondering if we were going to stop along the way back to Hanoi for lunch somewhere, we did stop at a place that sold all sorts of goods and clothes.  There was a café there, but we didn’t know if we had time to stop and have something to eat.  By the time we reached Hanoi we were both very hungry, we now realise we should have said something to Carn our guide.

A wonderful trip, and a wonderful country.  Will definitely recommend you and your company to anyone thinking of travelling to Vietnam or the other Asian countries.

Thank you

Thank you Thai everyone has had a fantastic time and we have enjoyed lots and have plenty of beautiful memories to cherish from our trip. Thanks to you and your team. Until next time we meet take care and best wishes to you and your family : Love Janette & Craig
Hello Thai We had such a great holiday we'd like to come back to Vietnam again. We'll also have some friends with us for part of the holiday, I'll pass your details onto them. Thinking arriving on the 2nd or 3rd of April leaving 12th April going straight to Hoi An for 5 nights ( same hotel, Same bottom story room with private pool) then say Cambodia 1-2 nights then Hanoi and home. Perhaps see the temples outside Hanoi. Or even straight to Hanoi then Hoi An so we are relaxed before going home. Will take your advice.
With sincere thanks to Thai Van Vu who is so pleased to refer to us as Uncle Ron and Aunty Margaret and we are equally proud to refer to him as our Nephew...we have only just returned from a 25 day fully escorted tour of Vietnam from Vung Tau to Hanoi and all in between. Our drivers and local guides through the three regions South..Central and Northern could not have been more courteous and helpful ...nothing was ever too much trouble to ensure we were happy and safe throughout our tour...We travelled 4 star hotels all the way...our meals..... picturesque tours etc went above and beyond our expectations....Thank you Thai and also your drivers and guides...we will have no hesitation in recommending VIETLAND HOLIDAYS to our many friends in Australia.
We have only got high accolades on the service and professionalism of this organisation. Mr Thai Vu runs a great tour company and looks after his Clients. He organised our 2009, 2012 & 2016 RASigs Reunions in Vietnam with over 200 people travelling on each three week tour. Organisation of all in-country transfers, transport, accommodation and meals went without a hitch. Vietland Travel is the No1 Travel Company to use in Vietnam , they know the business inside and out. (Mr.David Winch)
Our group has used Vietland Holidays for several of our large tours and have nothing but praise for Mr Thai and his wonderful staff and guides. From the moment we step off the plane to when we get back on we are pampered by the English speaking guides and the great transport that has awaited us. I can highly recommend Vietland Holidays for all types of tours whether it is just 2 people or large events such as ours. From Vietnam to Laos or Cambodia it is a great experience with the extra knowledge that the food and sights of these countries are well catered for. Congrats and thanks Mr Thai.
Thai Jackson from Vietland Holidays made our 18 day trip to Vietnam hassle free from the hotels, meals and tours he arranged for us. The tour guide he chose for us (40 people) for the 18 days was great, nothing was to much trouble, he made sure we all had a great time. Highly recommend Vietland Holidays, Vietnam. Gabriella Manucci
My group of 4 travelled to the Central Highlands where we visited places such as Buon Ma Thout , Pleiku, Kontum seeing many ethnic villages & previous battle sites of the USA & Korean forces . We saw Hill 42 or Hamburger Hill & stood on The Phoenix Airstrip home of the US Infantry. We rode elephants into a river & through the jungle, wow it was so good. Our guides were 2nd to none, excellent with their knowledge & speech. The accommodation was superb , luxury which we did not expect the standard to be so high. Mr Thai of Vietland Holidays is a wonderful young man & very experienced in organising tours in Vietnam & I thoroughly recommend his company to others, one of the photos in the gallery of 2 men riding on the back of the elephant is Me & Alex.
What a great time we had and as usual incredibly well looked after by the team at Vietland Travel. Highlight of this trip was Siem Reap, Ankgor Wat, fabulous. Thai Vu for looking after us as usual what can we say a wonderful gentleman. Would not hesitate to recommend this company and its staff Thank you so much .

On a colleague’s recommendation, I booked a 28 day fully escorted private tour of Vietnam and Cambodia in July / August 2016. I cannot speak highly enough of Mr Thai and Vietland Holidays. I was met by a guide in each location and the accommodation met or exceeded my expectations. I visited Hanoi, Dien Bein Phu, SaPa, HaLong Bay, Hue, HoiAn, Nha Trang and Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC). Unfortunately I was unable to travel to Cambodia for medical reasons – Mr Thai took me to and from the International SOS Medical Centre in HCMC, and provided every assistance necessary for me to return home early and make an insurance claim. Mr Thai is personable, organised, helpful and one of the “good guys”. Everything on my itinerary was provided, and some items added without extra cost. I would definably book with Vietland Holidays again. Congratulations Mr Thai on a very professional business John Petteit
On behalf of Teena, Chanel and Anthony we would like to thank you for a well planned and most enjoyable trip. The accommodation was great and all the meals were fantastic. The Roberts were very nice travel buddies. Hope you are well rested and keeping away from hospitals as in Vietnam you spent a lot of time with sick and injured people. We will do another trip to Vietnam and use your travel agency and recommend you to our friends. With Thanks Damien ross and family. Mrs. Teena Ross
