Fantastic And well organised trip - Jan 1 - Jan 16, 2020

Traveler: Iris W. - Local specialist: Alex Nguyen

Alex was incredible to deal with. From our first contact on KimKim, she was always available and made a great effort to really understand what we wanted. The trip went exactly as planned. Absolutely no issues along the way. And when we did have an issue on our home bound flight which had absolutely nothing to do with her, she was there helping us with last minute accomodation.
Alex also made an effort to come and meet us while in Hanoi.
The accomodation was great all the way through, Of a good standard and very comfortable. Special mention needs to be made of our guide Khoa who was with us for 5 days in the North. His knowledge was extensive of the region it’s history and politics. For us he made that part of our trip, and set a very high bar for any future guides. He was just a delight to be with.
The highlight for us was Phu Luong, a fabulous Mountain area in the North. We stayed in the eco retreat there which was beautiful and highly recommended as was the trekking.
We loved our boat cruise on Ha Long Bay and highly recommend a 2 night 3 day cruise. Much better than just one night. The standard of accomodation on the boat .. VSpirit premier was fantastic. Food and tour on our 2nd day was amazing
And of course Hoi An. What a great place to visit. Loved it. We relaxed here went to the beach and ambled through the old city
Ho Chi Minh was not our favourite.. 2 days was enough there.
And Alex was with us on text every step of the way. All we can say is Alex you are fabulous and we highly recommend you. Was a delight to meet you and put a face to our months of contact.

Hi Iris and Mark,
Thank you so much for your nice words and detailed feedbacks.
I was so happy to have a chance to listen to you and we chat with each other when you are in Hanoi. Hope that you will come back to Vietnam soon as many other destinations are waiting for you or our other countries like Laos, Myanmar and Cambodia :)
Big hug 🤗 to both of you :xxx
