Memories are made of this!

Booked a 10-day classic Vietnam trip with TravelLocal's Vietnamese partner and from the outset, we were confident about all the arrangements made for us. Everything worked like clockwork, from the airport meet and greets to the hotels and the tours. Our guide and driver in Hanoi were the best, the guide was exceptionally knowledgeable and the driver did an amazing job in the chaotic traffic. We saw Halong Bay at its very best, sunny skies, glistening blue sea - marvellous. Our guide in Hue and Hoi An was competent but at times distracted, no commentary about surroundings on the Perfume river cruise. Nevertheless, we saw the highlights of the area and were very impressed with the Imperial Palace. Our guide in Ho Chi Minh was the least competent, perhaps a little too young and callow for the task but again we saw the main sights. We were not impressed, however, with the guide falling asleep on the car journeys - admittedly, some were long, but we were awake! Our highlight here was the Vespa foodie night - we never imagined travelling at speed as pillion passengers at our ages, but once we’d got over our sheer terror, we thoroughly enjoyed it. A never-to-be-forgotten moment! We decided to take the slow route home, cruising from Singapore to Dubai - this was an excellent choice as we were able to relax after our hectic tour of Vietnam. All in all, a wonderful trip. Thank you.
