"Good at all"

Kenny and Marcus were excellent guides and we had a very good overall experience. There was a mix up with the tour today and my friend with the bad knees found the trek difficult. Kenny was good, however we thought we were going on the shorter walk

"interesting tour"

We had a pleasant/interesting tour.
Everything was very good and we had a great time. The two things that was a little less good was:
-At the Gondola hotel we had a nice big room but they must have had a leak in the walls. You could see on the wall and it smelled of mold.
-The guide at Sapa showed us some great places but he wasnt talking/telling us so much.

Good afternoon. I just booked the North Vietnam at a Glance: Halong bay & Sapa 5 days - Departure 14 Sep 2019 I have 2 questions by the way: 1) My flight to Hanoi will be on the 14th of September, at 1455, ETA 1725. I've reviewed the itinerary for the first day, I was just wondering where your agency will be picking me up since I won't be checking in a hotel as our schedule states that we will be boarding the night train at 2000. 2) I know we'll be moving around a lot, so is it recommended that we have small luggages instead of big ones? Or can I bring a big luggage if you have safe places to store them in everywhere we go? (I don't travel light that's why I'm asking?
Response from BestPrice Travel

We pick up at the hotels located in Hanoi Old Quarter, if you arrive on 14 Sep and do not have the hotel, we can arrange the Airport pick-up and a room at the hotels close to Hanoi Train Station with extra charge, then we pick you up you from that hotel to take you to cabin on the train 2. Please bring all luggage with you, and we have the safe place to store them in both Sapa and Halong Bay Cheers

Hi there, I have booked a AirAsia flight arriving Hanoi on 4 March 2019 at 815 and depart Hanoi on 9 March at 1450 and will be travelling with my wife. We have some questions as below before we place our bookings: 1. We are interested in your 5 days 4 nights Sapa-Halong Bay tour with overnight sleeper train cabin but would like to have a sleeper cabin all by ourselves (2 pax). What is the surcharge? 2. Since we arrive early morning on 4 March (day 1) and will take the night train at 8pm, what do you suggest for us? Can a place be arranged for us to freshen up and leave our luggage for us to move around or do we need to get a hotel for day 1? 3. Your 5 days 4 nights itinerary says 3 nights hotel stay, one night sleeper train and one night on the boat in Halong Bay. Do we need to find our own hotel to stay on day 5 ie. 8 March? 4. Can you provide arrangements to pick us at Hanoi airport on day 1? 5. What is your group size?

Hi One of our travel consultant will contact you soonest Cheers
