Best Price Travel is a reliable company that we would use again and recommend to others. Orchid Cruise and Bassac are wonderful boats and highly recommend. Golden Luxury Hotel is very well placed and highly recommend. Sa Pa Paradise view is a good hotel with a very polite well-spoken English-speaking… More

Vietnam risks Ha Long Bay dropping off a destination of choice due to the rubbish and pollution we witnessed. It was a shame that this has so much potential but even though the Orchid cruise is supposed to be ‘away’ from the main boats that usually cruise the bays, there was so much rubbish in the… More

Guides were all great, but the Paloma Motorbike girls were the best!

Also, we were forced by driver that took us to Hue to go to a seafood restaurant that he wanted to go… More

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.
