HISTORY
While Ha Noi has over 1,000 years of history, Ho Chi Minh City is a relatively new settlement. The name of Sai Gon was registered for the first time in documents dating back to 1698. Due to its favourable geographical location, topography, and climate, this area rapidly became a converging point for traders from all over the world.

    All I can say is - WOW!! From the welcome lunch to the farewell dinner - everything was amazing. Drivers and guides were always punctual - without fail. Knowledge of the guides was exceptional. Their willingness to advise on things to do with free time was amazing and they did not fail. Everything they recommended was good.

    ...Tours were arranged by Thuy before and after the cruise and the guides provided an excellent service and were extremely well informed about the history of the countries and the sites we visited. Similarly the guides provided for the tours from the cruise had a wealth of knowledge and kept us interested - and amused at times ! The Jahan cruise was excellent and the staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff on the ship...
