    ...The moment I decided to explore this country, I knew I had to rely on a very very reliable and locally experienced tour agency. I am happy to say that VietSense Travel has topped in all my checkboxes of expectation. All I had to do was to have a couple of round of discussions with their highly experienced person and finalize the tailor made trip for us. One doesn't need to think beyond that. They arrange everything so scrupulously with a superb time management that you can't but have to praise them...

    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. Thuy Pham (tour organizer) was available 24/7 and was flexible and made a plan when my Mom got flu and we needed to change our plans. Thank you thank you thank you Thuy for an amazing trip. Will definitely tell all my friends about it.

    ...Overall the trip went very smoothly. Our guides and drivers were always on time. They were very responsible, friendly, and always had our best interests in mind. They taught us a lot about the sites, its history and the people of Vietnam. We liked all of them, especially Star in Hanoi. They really made the trip for us! We highly recommend VietSense Travel if you plan to visit Vietnam...

    ...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...
