What was good about our local partner based in Vietnam?

Helpful and responsive trip planning with Dzung. Had great ideas and worked to accommodate our limitations. Pick-ups and transfers were seamless - all the drivers were excellent and made sure we were safe. Guides were knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. The guides we spent several days with were even more enjoyable as we were able to talk about a variety of subjects. The unique hotels and lunch spots made the tour more special.

What could our local partner based in Vietnam improve on?

Sometimes, we wished that the drivers spoke a bit more English when we were travelling on our own with them. The hotel in HCM was not up to standard - dirty room, couch and bed linens. More information about finding the guides at the airports (some guides are at several exit locations) and the visa process upon arrival (we stood in the wrong lineup for quite a while...) Information on currency would have been helpful. For example, Cambodia uses primarily US dollars.

What did you think about the guides or drivers on your trip?

see above.

What advice would you give to other travellers planning a trip to Vietnam?

Go to Vietnam and Cambodia - great food, welcoming people! Add a few "do nothing" days in your itinerary - touring can get tiring after a week straight! Maybe a few less temples and some more varied sites..

What was the most memorable part of your trip?

All of it was interesting and different. I enjoyed the various landscapes - Bai Tu Long Bay, Sapa hills, Mekong Delta. On the archaeological side, the temples at Siem Riep were outstanding.
