We enjoyed all aspects of the stay, especially Mai Chau, Halong Bay (Bai Tu) and Hoi An. All the people and staff were very welcoming, but the number of motor bikes is insane. Crossing the roads was certainly an adventure. Loved the Vespa tour from Hoi An and the cycle through the villages in Mai Chau
Always responded very quickly. The trips organised by TravelLocal's local partner were very good allowing us to see the best of the country. Helped us decide the route and make the most of our time. The final 36 hours included a night stay in Cai Be which was the best part of 4 hours from Ho Chi Minh, which we didn't quite realise and it made our journey back to the UK too long. Although we wanted the Mekong stay it would have been better if there was an option at half the distance. The breakfast in the Dyn Opera hotel in Ho Chi Minh was disappointing compared to the other hotels, so maybe the local team could review whether there is a better option Overall we were very satisfied
See previous section
All the guides had very good knowledge and very friendly, and spoke reasonable English, although some of them struggled with some pronounciations, which meant you had to concentrate very hard when they were speaking. But thats being a little bit harsh. We felt safe with the drivers.
Recommend Mai Chau and the stay at the Eco Lodge. Also the Vespa tours around Hoi An and the company used by Tonkin for the Halong Bay (Bai Tu) trip
As mentioned already Mai Chau, Hoi An and Halong Bay (Bai Tu)
