Last January we visited Vietnam for the first time. We were with a party of six=> My wife and me, our two daughters en their boy friends. Our stay in Ho Chi Minh City was relatively short, still we managed - with the help of Aileen- to visit some extremely nice and special places like the Cai Be Floating Market, Cu Chi tunnel (which is for sure one of the finest in Ho Chi Minh City!!) and My Son Sanctuary, off the tourist grid. Tour was perfect. First of all our driver was great guy with good humor. He really wanted a great experience for us and he delivered it! We decided to drive our own route when all the other cars went to the known route where there's been signs before.
Very good service and vehicle, friendly driver, we saw everything we wanted including good restaurants.We booked a 10-day tour with umetravel. Absolutely worth the cost. Honestly one of the most memorable tours of our lives, to see such incredible wildlife in their natural habitat. Our tour guide was brilliant, very knowledgable and he obviously cares deeply about the park and the animals, plus his eyesight was remarkable!! He spotted animals hiding in the distance which we would never have seen without him.
We had a great time on this tour. If you're travelling to Vietnam and visit the SE Asia, it is well worth your while to tour the neigbouring and further places worth to see with UME Travel. It adds perfectly up to a great Vietnam experience.
Through the planning process we agreed on an 8-day private tour of Ho Chi Minh City Mekong Delta and a 2-day tour in Ha Long Bay. Based on suggestions we also booked train trips to Da Nang, added a Foodie tour in Hoi An. Our travel advisor adjusted our itinerary to make sure we spent our time wisely and had plenty of time at each of the attractions. Thank you very much!
Thanks Lisa for teaching us your incredible city and made it exciting for our 10 year son whom will always remember this family nature tour to Vietnam! Would absolutely us UME Travel again !
We never felt rushed or that we didn't get enough time at any of the places we visited. Ha Long Bay is best place to enjoy the natural beauty of Vietnam! I would very HIGHLY recommend for anyone visiting Vietnam for the first time.
