This was the most enjoyable experience in booking a vacation! Our trip advisor Cathy did a great job!! Having never traveled to Vietnam, we had no idea where to even begin. Cathy, took the time to get to know us first! Our interests, likes, dislikes. Do we want down time, do we like crowds, what we like to drink, what we liked in a hotel, our budget etc.. Truly all engaging questions that led to an amazing well thought out trip to Vietnam for 16 Glorious days! Really wonderful experience!! Highly recommended!
