Our friends and nearby relatives who'd had the Vietnam encounter variously said: 'hidden gem', 'remarkable people', 'excellent cuisine', 'scenic country', 'good value for money', 'very safe' -- these all we found to remain true when our band of 8 visited North Vietnam in a week in 12. 2015. We selected Vietnamlandtour with the good reviews experienced on Tripadvisor. We were impressed through the prompt e-mail responses given by Ruby to our various enquiries, her recommendations of the highest quality sites, her careful tailoring with the itinerary to meet our particular necessities, her help with our visas issuance, perhaps even her waiver involving minor charges. Her provision of guide/attendants within the time of your arrival, arrangement of hotels, transport, meals and prices to attractions were precisely what we needed as first-time visitors to a new country. We highly recommend Vietnamlandtour to all prospective visitors to help you Vietnam.
