Customer Testimonials

Once more thanks for a great trip!

Well Tuan just about to pack our bags or the last time here in your beautiful country. Feel so sad. Thank you for arranging such a wonderful trip of us. We have wall enjoyed it. Its been so good travelling Highway 1 and seeing so much of the country, so diverse and beautiful. Words cannot describe it. We enjoyed the cable car ride yesterday up to the reclining Budha and pagoda.

The highlight has to be meeting you my friend at last, we will remain friends for a longtime. We are leaving your wonderful country knowing we have made some new friends who will remain in our hearts and thoughts always. Hopefully we will be back soon but of course will be keeping in touch.
Once more thanks for a great trip

Best wishes to you, your family and Vivutravel .

Upon arrival, our private Vietnam tour guide and driver will welcome your Vietnam Holiday, pick up and transfer to the hotel for check in. Hanoi, a city where the exotic chic of old Asia blends with the dynamic face of new Asia. Where the medieval and modern co-exist. A city with a blend of Parisian grace and Asian pace, an architectural museum piece evolving in harmony with its history, rather than bulldozing through like many of the region’s capitals. Hanoi is where imagination becomes reality.
