We booked this tour as our holiday in Vietnam. Thanks Tracy for recommend Harong Bay ~ 2days 1night, 5 star cruise and was really happy. And very clean and delicious meals and all the staff were kind. The trekking tour to Sapa was so much fun. We met a local woman guide who has the same age with me and got 5 kids. Her English skills were excellent and she explained us in kind many customs of her family and minority groups in Sapa. I will come back in the second business trip on December and highly recommend

Me and my friend booked the Best of the North tour and we can not recommend it enough. It has been one of our highlights of our entire trip through Vietnam. The Sapa area is absolutely beautiful, and we got to experience all of that because of Asia Package Travel. Our tour guide was a local tribe woman, who took us through the actual rice fields, told us about her life and made lunch for us in her family home, which was such a one of a kind experience. The home-stay we stayed at offered us a very comfortable bed and a delicious meal, and on the second day, we got to see the beauty of the rice fields once again. Halong Bay is really fantastic, we got so much fun with kayak paddle. We can both say that it has been one of the most amazing things we've ever done, so if that doesn't convince you guys, we don't know what will! Thank you very much.
