Dat was amazing
Apr 11 - Apr 30, 2023
I was very nervous about booking through an online company, as I have travelled before with well known companies. From the moment Dat contacted me, and asked what we wanted to do, his suggestions were all fantastic, and we nervously booked through him, on Version 6 of his planning. We were relieved when we landed in Vietnam, and there was someone with my name on a board waiting….then this happened every flight, or even day tour guides etc…they were all there waiting for us, usually about 10 minutes early on each day. I could highly recommend Dat to anyone wanting to travel to Vietnam…he didn’t miss a thing…I just hope he gets paid well, because we did spend a lot on tipping all his guides and drivers that he had booked, so hoping he does get rewarded for his wonderful work.
Thank you so much Dat…very happy first time online customers!

Another great experience, possibly would not repeat, but wonderful to see on first trip.
Good location for tourists, just near Walking Street (pub street), and also close to big market.
Another great place to stay for one night on Halong Bay…great big bedroom…lovely food etc.
Another fantastic location chosen by Dat…
2 nights spent here were most enjoyable…the only place we did get ripped off by a taxi driver for going only 2 blocks, as we mixed up the map of where we were headed!!
6 great nights spent here…very relaxing and once again very central to walk anywhere. Even the restaurant owner opposite this hotel became our personal taxi whenever we wanted to go to beaches or tailors etc.
Another perfect location…we did end up finding it great to get around HCMC from here. Staff were very helpful, but the markets and great shops were all within 5-10 minutes walk
Really enjoyed Hanoi…the food tour was great, trying traditional foods in several places.
Another wonderful experience…they are amazing how they row these boats with their feet.
Another fantastic experience…going to local market…then going to Chins home to help prepare our large lunch…then a walk around her village to friends homes, who grow/make different things…then onto a tea factory. (Unfortunately, we all did get the runs for a couple of days following this day…so not blaming anything really!)
Another great trip to Halong Bay…they even brought me a birthday cake out and sang to me…which was a lovely touch….and then also to Helen who’s bday was 2 days later.
Went sailing to see the wild monkeys in Halong Bay.
It’s great to learn a bit about the tradition of the country you are visiting, but half a day is really enough for us in things like this…we did enjoy, but also loved getting back to hotel for a swim.
We were taken to museum, temples etc, which are in every town…but still always good to see once. Food was delicious again.
Another interesting day, riding through to a fishing village then lunch in a local restaurant again.
Very moving day…the war remnants museum, then to Cu Chi Tunnels….very sad but interesting to see.
Once again a great experience, if I have to be honest, we didn’t love the local singers performing in their home, as it was all in Vietnamese and we couldn’t understand what they were singing etc.. The bike ride itself was good…very interesting life on the island…even funnier for us was seeing the ferry how we got over to island. Then we had a great cooking demonstration back at the lodge.
A wonderful morning …spent at the market and industrial area of Cai Abe…we did enjoy this before heading back to a HCMC where we had a couple of last days to shop.
