The Fantastic Vietnam Trip Hi, thank you very much for the 13 Days Vietnam trip. My girlfriend and I truly enjoyed the whole trip. We did not expect much for this journey, but it turned out to be fantastic. We will never forget the romantic overnight cruise at Halong Bay. Hanoi is truly similar to Paris, a romantic and energetic city with a lot of delicious street food. Mr. Duy was a very excellent tour guide. We never ran out of schedule and enjoyed all the trips without rushing and running out of time. We will use your service again if we go to Vietnam in the future.

A bonding family trip to Vietnam! It was a long holiday, and we spent some real time by visiting Vietnam. We were much hesitating at first when we took up the nineteen days family tour along the north-central coast. But, big thanks to Mr. Linh the local guide who made our journey a memorable one. He made sure we never got bored, and we were highly knowledgeable about the places we visited, and he even introduced many adventurous things to do for my children. More than me spending some good time, I was much happy to see my kids get along with the country and its tradition very well.

We had a good time We were attracted by our friends visit Vietnam to enjoy the wonderful experience they had during their trip. We wanted to visit in the high season but were a bit skeptical about accommodation. Thanks to the travel consultant Ms. Ha who gave us exactly the trip we wanted and suited our budget. We enjoyed visiting religious places, biking trip, shopping and street food tour as well. My wife is a vet by profession and loved to visit the elephant camp. Phuket was a lovely abode for the love birds, and we enjoyed every bit of it. I will rate this trip 4*/5 and will recommend to any friend.

Our first outstation tour was treat of memories It was our first outstation tour program, with family and friends. In fact, we were a bit skeptical about a 19-day long holiday. As soon we landed at Ho Chi Minh International airport, we got the spark that everything is going to be a well-planned trip. Our tour started from Ho Chi Minh City and ended in Phuket. We had all types of enjoyment like biking, exploring elephant camp and hanging round in the Krabi beach. We enjoyed the local food and did some shopping. Thanks to our travel consultant Mr.Ngoc for planning such an efficient and exciting trip for us. The Hue city tour and royal dinner were exciting beyond words to explain. We had kids in our group but didn’t face any issues as the tour guide was friendly and hospitable to us.

Fun and frolic activities We went for the Vietnam trip in a group of family members of eleven people. We had entrusted our tour program to Vivu Tour, who did a commendable job from airport pick up, accommodation, and complete site seeing. We were interested to see the high lights of Vietnam, especially that are enjoyable to children. Some of our family members were interested in a religious trio, and that was also in the itinerary. We enjoyed the port at Hoi An. Mr. Truong, the guide explained us the importance of the places. We never had any problem, be it finding an ATM or visiting some internet cafes. The memories of the caves and waterfalls are still fresh in our minds. I will recommend this trip to my friends for sure.

A lot more to see in Vietnam We went for a 15-day family tour starting from Hanoi and ended in Luang Prabang. We were a group of 3 families and opted for a mix of history, fun and shopping package. The ladies team was happy and quenched their shopping spree in Hoi An. The guide Ms. Thao took them to shops and got fabulous discounts on purchase which made them happy. We enjoyed the leisure activities and entertainment. Our visit to the country side almost became a photography tour. The farming and fishing trip was a fun filled event and loved by all the men of our team.

Street food and sea food, we loved a lot We opted for the Vietnam tour by train. We visited the floating market, Bac Ma national park, Sapa trek and Sapa market. We were a group of office colleague, and hence train journey was the best for us. Ms.Lien had flawlessly planned our Hue city tour, and she did a good job. Hotels were comfortable, and the tour planning by the company was beyond imagination and worth the money we spent. The guide explained us the significance of Phong Nha caves, Hoian ancient town, Tam Coc, Sapa and Halong Bay. We enjoyed the street food as there were some great food lovers in our team.

15 days and total detachment from our busy life We went along with our core family friends on a 19 day holiday from our Silicon Valley busy schedule to Vietnam. It was exciting and was worth the money spent. We toured the cities also. Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City were impressive. And I remember how our driver Mr. Thoang, who took us all around the city, guided us about all aspects of kayaking and cycling. Although we brought our belongings, still we were guided by our daily requirements by Ms. Loan, the tour guide. The Nha cave and paradise grotto were a great attraction for us. Our visit to the National Park was a notable one.

Memorable trip! It was our first family holiday to a Far Eastern country. We enjoyed touring Vietnam for 19 days. It was a tightly packed 19-day program, where we covered all the key cities in the minimum possible time. We emphasized on historical sites, shopping, street food hopping, and city tour. Our guide Mr. Linh was truly responsive and caring and guided us for ATMs, washrooms, and medicines. We covered Hoi An, Hue and enjoyed Hanoi. Although I had insurance, still I will not forget the driver Mr. Hung’s cooperation in looking for a clinic while my wife sprained her ankle and had to take medical care. I will remember this memorable trip and will advise any friend to opt for the same.

Incredible Family Journey It’s like finding ourselves again. Our annual tour in Vietnam was amazingly unforgettable. We started from Hanoi, and it was the friendliest city we’ve ever visited. Ms. Thuy gave us with a very well-organized accommodation Halong Bay. This trip was making us get in touch with nature. Da Lat was also amazing; it was gorgeous with beautiful places enriched with history. We got the chance to meet new people and to learn the new culture. It was not only a holiday for our kids, but they got to learn the new point of life. Ms. Thuy is such a brilliant tour guide, and she was excellent.

Perfect Holiday My daughter and I want to have a vacation trip together, and we chose Vietnam as our destination. It was our first time to go to Vietnam, and we were worried about everything, including the accommodation. We consulted to Lan, and she gave us the 19-days package starting from Hanoi. We went to Hoi Anh, enjoyed the beaches and diving in Nha Trang, and another city tour at Da Lat. We were worried we couldn’t blend with people in Hoi Anh, but Mr. Trung has its own way to make us feel like we were local people and interacting with everyone we met along the way. He is truly the best.

Unforgettable Trip Hi, Ms. Dung, it was really a pleasure to have our tour guided by you. Thank you very much for the fantastic journey. We apparently did not expect much from this trip, but it turned out it was the most unforgettable trip we ever had. Ms. Dung was always caring and looking for us patiently, she went very well with all the accommodation transfers, guiding the tours and every essential thing that we need. I learned new skills of driving from Mr. Thao, and he drove us through rocky roads at Hoi Anh. He took the way that we can get the best view of rice fields and mountains.

Vietnam tour in style We enjoyed the 14 days Vietnam tour in style a lot. Our trip started from Hanoi, covering places like Hoa Lu, Tam Coc, and the famous Halong Cruise. The Hue city tour was enriching and more so because of the immense knowledge that our guide Mr. Duy had. He explained the history of every place and how each site has evolved over the years. His stories about the history of the whole country made our trip an enriching one. It was because of him that we came to know the country up close and personal. Our driver drove us safely through the traffic and highways. We are soon going to revisit the country through your travels only.

Perfect mix of new and old Vietnam My family opted for the Vietnam Today Tour. It was a 16-day tour that started from Hanoi. When we have begun exploring the place we saw the perfect blend of old and new age. The most amazing sight was at the Hoan Kiem lake, where the locals were practicing Tai Chi around the lake. Thank you, Ms. Huong, for arranging a special Vietnamese breakfast for us. They made sure that we experience the beautiful mountains, beaches, cuisines, rivers, hotels and overall the friendly staffs. Starting from the driver to the tour guides, every one of them always wore a smile on their face and made sure that we enjoy the trip entirely.

Getting pampered throughout the tour I cannot come up with any word other than ‘pamper’ for the whole trip. It was our first Vietnam trip under the Vietnam Tour For Family Of A Lifetime - 19 Days From Hanoi, a fabulous tour package offered by the tour operator, with multilingual guides and driver. The whole itinerary was made keeping comfort in mind. The kids had fun hanging around with the guides and asking all sorts of questions. Our guides, especially, Mr. Thao was a soft spoken and highly knowledgeable man who answered all the queries without getting irritated. Each place that we explored was fantastic. Tried out local food at Vinpeal Island in Na Trang, enjoyed the Phare Circus in Siem Reap and roamed around Angkar Thom. The whole trip was a memorable experience and would highly recommend the travels to others.

Kids loved the Vietnam diary Hello Mr. Quyen, how are you doing? I wanted to thank you for offering us such an excellent tour of Vietnam. My kids are in love with you and your place. You took us to almost every corner of the city, villages and showed us everything important. My kids loved the traditional crafts of Vietnam, its beautiful river and the unforgettable traditional lunch that we had. I can’t thank you enough for allowing us to spend a day with the local farmer. My son was delighted to see the paddy field and how people are working there. You have given my kids and me a lifetime memory.

Family vacation along the Coast in Vietnam My primary motive was to explore the city, and Mr. Linh helped me do just that and much more. He was more of a friend than a guide. While going on the Sapa trekking, we had a heart to heart talk where I discovered many unknown facts about Vietnam. An ancient town always has several stories hidden in its closet, but Mr. Linh helped me to unravel all of them. I have fallen in love with the country, so I am coming back soon. Mr. Linh, thank you, for sharing all your knowledge with me.

Exquisite Vietnam memories for family First of all, a big thank you to Ms. Kim, who planned our itinerary! Without your help, our trip would have been very hectic. There were so many places to cover within a short span of time, but you made it possible for us. A special mention for Mr. Thao, our guide, who was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the place and also had so many interesting stories to share to keep us entertained while traveling. Even the driver, Mr. Tuang was an exceptionally skilled driver. We weren’t feeling uncomfortable in any of our rides. Overall, we are highly pleased with your hospitality and friendly nature.

The best spiritual trip to Vietnam Vietnam has many temples surrounding them, and my family members wanted to visit them our next Vietnam family tour plan. I had no ideas about the temples to visit and how to make my family members comfortable by traveling around for ninteen continuous days. It was with the help of Ms. Nhung, who scheduled our trip and made sure to visit the temples along with us. Mr. Nhung is a well-experienced tour guide, and the best thing I liked about her service is that she was much friendly with my family members. She was calm and polite while addressing to any queries and my family members recited the temple rituals along with her. In fact, she helped my family members to recite the ritual with it soul intact. It was a great experience. Her knowledge about the temples shook me up, and that was amazing to travel with such a guide. The temples around the city do have the unique positive vibe around them, and we felt it with the proper guidance from her.

A country to learn and cherish with Always wanted to take my two kids to a place that has more adventures for them to unleash with, and Hanoi became the only location that made my dream come true. Initially, I was afraid about how much I can handle my kids alone without my wife accompanying us through our tour, yet, all my insecurity vanished when my children and I had a friendly tour guide named Mr. Quyen, who introduced more adventurous things to my kids. Along with the company of Mr. Quyen, my children had a great time by cycling around the city, riding on bulls around the fields and trekking around the mountains. The city has its richness with a great cultural background, and the museums made sure that my kids developed their education about the city. Once the tour got over, the kids were much excited to share their adventurous experience with their mother and me, being a dad I was much happier to see them learn and be active all day.

Fantastic itinerary and service at a realistic price. We were referred to vivu travel by a family who had done their homework. It was our first time using a private tour company and first time to vietnam. Travelling with my wife and two teenage daughters I was not sure what to see and where to go. Tuan advised and guided me and created a fantastic itinery at a realistic price. They didnt try to push any particular hotel or tour, it was all constructive. In Vietnam the guides were attentive, informative and personal. The company did everthing they said they would do and more. We could alter our day, start late, add bits in, all no problem. I do not usually write reviews but i have been so impressed with this company i have no problem in letting others know. They really do provide a fantastic service, will be using them again next year.

We would highly recommend Vivutravel for an individual, reliable and friendly travel service. We contacted Tuan via email to help plan our trip to Vietnam with 3 teenagers and found him wonderful to deal with. He planned a comprehensive trip, made some great suggestions and was very prompt and relaible in getting back to us. The trip was fantastic and hassle free. We were met at each place by experienced drivers and the local guides were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. All accomodation was great and the trip went very smoothly. We could never have managed to have such an enjoyable trip and see so much without Tuan's help. We would highly recommend his travel service and would contact him again if we return.

We’d always promised ourselves a holiday in South East Asia, and with the children grown, we finally had the time and money to do it. We chose Vietnam, and found Vivu Travel online. The company appeared well-respected and after having travelled with it, we can fully understand why. Nothing was too much trouble, starting with the consultant we spoke to in Hanoi, Ngoc, to the guides, Loan and Bang and the drivers, Tuan and Bao. If you have made the same promise to yourselves, get in touch with Vivu Travel, you will not regret it.

It is always stressful to plan a holiday for family, too much to think about and travelling with 3 kids is crazy? I am not used to booking a packaged tour with a local tour operator, but i made a try as i did not want to cover everything. I found Vivutravel on Tripadvisor, reading their excellent reviews, searching for their company's information and images before sending them an inquiry. Ms. Kim at Vivutravel replied in a minute and sent me this tour package at the end of the day. She explained why this tour is great for family with kids, advised me what to do and gave me a lot of helpful information in one email that i was so impressed. It took me only 5 mails to confirm the tour. The first day when we arrived at Hanoi airport, a private tour guide was there waiting for us. We visited Vivutravel's office, met Kim and paid the outstanding balance. Things were great. Ladies at Vivutravel were friendly and it was good to know them in person. The tour went well, hotels were good, transportation was clean and comfortable. Our tour guide Thong was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We loved the street foods in Hanoi, enjoyed the rice terraced fields in Sapa, nice boat trip in Halong bay, but we liked Hoi An much, lovely town. Mekong delta was something different from the rest of Vietnam and Phu Quoc island was perfect, our family had some free days to relax. All in all, our first time in Vietnam was wonderful. We had time to visit, do things together and to relax. Keep up your good work Vivutravel, we will come back.
