    Having previously travelled in a number of group tours, this was our first experience of a private tour. Myself and 2 friends visited Vietnam for 10 days in December. I did have a number of reservations, and thoroughly 'trolled' the internet to ensure I got a top quality agent. I selected 'UME Travel' as their reviews and customer feed back in Tripadvisor was very positive. They were very accommodating and good communication to help us plan our perfect trip. We found this part extremely useful, and were able to change bits and discuss various options with great ease despite the time difference. We did research other options but found that this tour helped us see everywhere we wanted to go, arrange accommodation and meals for us and was excellent value for money.

    This was my first time in Vietnam with my family. My parents had visited earlier the previous year and that's how they got to know ume. I have personally never met a more punctual, attentive and approachable individual, if you're from the city like me, you'll quickly know what I mean. We were sometimes joined by friends, for which John rented a van with air-conditioning and wifi, he even picked us up from the airport and drove us back! He took us to several attractions including a rain forest hike and Ha Long Bay cruise, where we got to see many of the cave on the sea. An outstanding service combined with genuine kindness. Thank you John, it was a pleasure, see you next time!
