I had the pleasure of having Hang Moon at Best Price Travel help me while in Vietnam. The most important thing to know is that Hang Moon will have your back even when things go wrong. Our trip was on the Mekong Delta and it was amazing. Ms. Moon set up all of the transfers and quickly responded to all of my questions.
