From the minute I booked the tickets to the day i left Hanoi, Asia Package Travel looked after me in top notch form, I had booked a few day trips with them and they were always on time , professional and gave a great tour. The guides were very knowledgeable and their English was pretty good although did have a few moments of confusion due to the pronunciation.

Went to Vietnam for the first time can be very daunting and difficult for travellers like me. Asia Package Travel has made it so easy. They are prompt with the schedule and all the tour guides they arranged had excellent english skills and broad knowledge about the places. Asia Package Travel's service was excellent and the price was cheap, so it worth every penny spent. Thank you Tammy for all your help!

We love the ride on the sampan down and up the river in Ninh Binh. Pass some nice bungalows along the river, look like nice and quiet getaways. Nice bicycle ride after the boat ride. Visit to the temples were ok, nothing spectacular. Ha long bay is a must see for a trip to Vietnam. Our guide Hoang was very knowledgeable and a genuinely nice person. Always bending over backwards to help. a tourist guide took us for a bicycle tour in the surrounding area. We rode through paddy fields in Mai Chau, we witnessed the amount of hard work of these farmers as it was harvesting season. however, they looked happy and healthy. Wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to anyone.
