A great Vietnam tour with Vivutravel


“Fab 50 in Vietnam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2015

My friend and I decided to celebrate year of turning 50 together in Vietnam. I did some research and found Vivu Travel. I emailed Trang all the places we wanted to see and the dates and she provided a fun detailed itinerary that was affordable.

We had a great Vietnam holiday and enjoyed all our our private tour guides and drivers at each location. The next time I visit Vietnam, I think I will try and visit Laos and Cambodia as well. The locations that I enjoyed extremely well were Sapa, Ha Long Bay and Hoi An.

Trang is so great! I would definitely book with her again!
