Coach drivers do not speak English. Too much free time. Some tour guides are not detailed enough (perhaps, lack of knowledge) in describing certain places, their history, etc.

Well organised. Enjoyed very much having lunch with our Paloma girls, we learned many things about Vietnam from them, they were great and loved their Dao Yai uniforms

Would like much more interaction with Vietnamese people, where and how they live today, less of history lessons repeated many times.
