Wonderful trip through Vietnam with Vivutravel


Dear Ngoc

We had a great 11 day trip through Vietnam. We started at Hanoi (3 days) and went to Ha Long Bay, Ninh Binh, Hue, Hoi An and Ho Chi Minh (within Mekong Delta). The trip was planned by Vivu Travel very good.

The visit was really well organized and the chosen hotels had always a high standard and the rooms were very clean and comfortable. The guides were very friendly and told us a lot of the vietnamese culture, the landscape and they answerd any other uprising questions in a good english language.

To summarise it: It was a wonderful, tailor-made and personalized trip and if we plan another trip to South East Asia - Vivu Travel will be our partner to enjoy our next holidays!


Many Thanks
