On the whole we had a good time . Guides were good and helpful.
Jenny who helped in booking the tour was very helpful and prompt in responding to my questions.

some hotels were wery average. Not what we expected and paid for. They were not 4 star. Drivers and guides were sent to all airport pick ups which were not needed.could have had a guide for Vin pearl island tour as we were a bit lost i n the island. It was difficult to find someone who could speak English

We booked the Best of Vietnam 10 day tour after seeing so many positive reviews for Best Price. Everything that was said was true. Aside from the price being amazing, we were so well taken care of.
Upgrading to the Luxury Hotels for a small price was well worth it for us as down time was really important… More

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

A little too much of the same thing over and over regards to lunch. Would have been nice to go to a Bahn Mi shop or dumpling shop one day for lunch instead of always having the 8 course tourist menu. Also, we were forced by driver that took us to Hue to go to a seafood restaurant that he wanted to go… More

We had a fantastic holiday in a wonderful country. The whole itinerary was so well organised that nothing went wrong at all. Every trip was on time and interesting, every flight arrived on time, every guide was knowledgeable and helpful and every driver knew where to go.

The hotels were all good in… More

Nothing at all really. The only part of the holiday that was less enjoyable was the journey to/from Halong Bay and the time spent hanging around after the cruise was finished before we were able to leave. I realise this is not within the control of Best Price, but it was interesting to note that all the passengers on the boat (from many different companies) said the same thing.
