    Thanks for your email. I can't believe we've been home nearly 2 weeks already! We really enjoyed all of our trip. We crammed a lot into 2 weeks and felt extremely well taken care of by your team. We enjoyed Saigon and of course, could have spent a lot more time there. Hoi An was spectacular at night, but the days were sooo hot (out of your control) which meant quiet days by the beach ..More

    Thank you very much for the fabulous trip that we recently had with the Chants to your beautiful country. Vietnam is more like a lot of little countries- there were so many different communities and so many different styles of living. The Sapa mountain villagers were so different to the island dwellers in the Mekong. Quite amazing! The trip went very well. The hotels were great and the drivers ..More

I realize there are much less expensive options available in Halong Bay, but we were quite happy with our choice. The Victoria hotel was also a fabulous place and the train was sufficient. I would have preferred to have the ..More

    Just when I thought I was over the jetlag, it woke me up this morning at 4AM... It is hard to sleep with all of the fond memories swimming in my head! I want to second Peter's sentiments. We are extremely pleased with you, your team. We share our photos and stories with everyone that will sit long enough. Peter and I have laughed (and cried, but only about the close of our holiday) many ..More
