Hi Huy

Just to let you know - we had a very good vacation and excellent Vietnam tour last December - thanks to your travel agency!!! The guides were excellent and spoke English very well. We liked the way we were taken care of from the time we got to the airports and throughout the whole tour!
Best wishes

Dear Huong,

We are home and want to thank you for all your help. We enjoyed our trip and also felt it was very informative. Should we here of anyone planning a trip to Vietnam, we will tell them of your service.

I plan to provide some information and comments about Vietnam to friends over the e-mail.

Hello, I have to say that our trip to Vietnam was o要e of the best holidays we've had for a long time and I have already recommended your service to a friend who is looking to travel to Vietnam. The tour guides were all very good and we particularly liked Trung from Hanoi.

Hi Huy

I greatly enjoyed my Sapa, Halong bay Tour. The meals were all very good and my hotel was adequate and fine.

My guide, Phi, was excellent. His knowledge of his country culture was outstanding, and greatly added to my trip experience. His English was excellent and made the tours of the monastaries so fascinating. Also, he was able to explain to me the various religious figures and traditions of each place we visted. In addition, he explained the traditions and regions of the tribal styles of clothes which I was very curious about. Also, when we visted a typical Hmong family, it was helpful to speak Hmong language, as I had many questions about the typical Hmong home.

My driver was wonderful and a careful and conscientious driver. The vehicle (Land Cruiser) was clean at all times and very comfortable. It was indeed a pleasure to be in such capable care as with my guide and my driver. They made my experience complete.

Thank you again for arranging my tour. You may reprint my comments. I have no photos to offer, as all were made with 35 mm film, not digital. Thank you again!

Dear Loan

First of all, let me say that the whole trip was a wonderful experience and certainally excellent value for money.

The guides overall were very knowledgeable and did generally go out of their way to help my traveling companion who had some mobility problems. They were personalble and seemed really to care about us. Service above and beyond the call of duty!

Meals were all excellent! Even the o要e o要 the Mekong River cruise boat which was suppored to be not up to standard. The guides asked us for any special requests (there were 9 vegetarians in our group) and ordered a wide variety of dishes that everyone enjoyed. The ala carte dinner was confusing and we ended up with far too much food, some of which wasn't what we had thought it was o要 the menu. Just having the guide order would have been better.

The hotels were first-rate and the drivers and buses were excellent.

Jessica Vaida - US

Sorry for the delay in my response. I wanted to go through my log of the Vietnam trip to better answer your questions.

My sister and I thought that we received excellent value for our money. The hotels were better than we expected, as was the general quality of the food. The meals were very good. We had o要e complaint. The meals were big, almost feasts, at both lunch and dinner several of the days. The meals were too close together, sometimes o要e ending at 2 PM and the dinner starting before 6PM. We would not at all have minded having a bowl of noodles for lunch when we had o要e of the terrific meals for dinner that had to start early because of the evening's entertainment. Also, perhaps because the quality of the meals was so high, we were not impressed with the two meals you specifically advertised, the dumpling dinner and the duck dinner.

One meal we particularly enjoyed was the lunch in Hoi An where we ate in a garden. Rob had the curried chicken and I had the steak. The ambience and the food were delightful.

One other issue: We would have liked the guides to join us for the meals if they chose to do so.

All of the guides spoke good English and were enthusiastic about their work and their city (country).

We would certainly recommend CTV to anyone who asked.

Please feel free to contact me if you have additional questions or would like to use any of my comments.


George Fenton - US


Please see our comments o要 the tour as below:

For the meal, The final day ( 4/04/07) Lunch at a local restaurant called Mimosa Restaurant, very good Menu, service and quality.

We had o要ly o要e Guide and he was excellent all round with a very good command of English. We communicated with each other fluently and he was very knowledgable about each site we visited. We have a very safe and comfortable driver. The vehicle was kept clean and fresh all the time.

Our o要e Guide was at all times helpful and very knowledgeable of all the sites visited. He was a genuine nice person, complete with a charming and pleasant disposition. Every day of the whole trip was memorable but, we still desire to return to Vietnam perhaps by an overland route so as to embrace even more of the your culture and History.

Thanks for arranging such an excellent trip for us. We will definitely recommend tailormadevietnamholidays.com to our family and friends.

I just finished my Vietnam tour and I want you to know how WONDERFUL it was. I don't think it could have been planned any better even with months in advance!

Our guide Long was truthfully the best guide I have ever had in all my traveling. He had very good command of the English language and was extremely knowledgeable of the history of the places we attended. He had a great deal of respect and politeness with just the right touch of humor to make the trip so enjoyable.

The driver was extremely skilled with the tough driving conditions and so polite and helpful.

I just was very lucky when I was exploring Hanoi on the internet to find your company. Be assured that I will recommend vietnamspirit travel to anyone coming to Vietnam.

Rebecca Meck - US

Dear vietnamspirittravel,

We had a wonderful time in vietnam and would like to thank you for all your hard work. We would also like to thank our guide for his exceptional enthusiasm and care for us during the trip. He was by far, the most genuine and knowledgeable guide we encountered during our entire stay in Vietnam. Thanks to Tam, we learned about Buddhist belief and got to exerpience a taste of traditional Vietnam life.

Also, thank you for your flexibility and cooperation when I experienced altitude sickness and needed to change our itinerary. Your agency and our tour guide worked out details allowing us to stay o要e extra night in Hoi An and acclimating to the higher elevation. Your understanding went a long way towards making the rest of the trip enjoyable.

Thank you o要ce again for helping to create our unforgettable journey.

Best Regards,
Marie Atkinson - UK


It was a pleasure to meet you. Thank you and your company - VietnamSpirittravel for a vacation that was "NO. 1", thanks to your excellent guides and drivers. The shows, accommodation, meals and expert knowledge was simply superior.

Long in Hanoi and Binh in SaiGon were "the best" guides, thank you.

Our drivers, both Mr. Quang were excellent. Mr Quang in Hanoi also had a great singing voice making car travel enjoyable. Mr Quang in Saigon had recently lost his Mother and he was understandably a little quiet at first, however he proved himself to be a true professional and looked after us wonderfully.

Every aspect of the tours in the North and Saigon were "most memorable". The Cooking Class and especially the show following was absolutely "first rate".

Thanks again for the T shirts and for your patience with me in organizing our China tours, Dzung.

Take care.........

Hi Huy,

Here is some feedback about our time in Vietnam. o要ce again we were all very happy with everything you organised for us. In regard to the three areas you wanted to know about:

1. Meals- we o要ly organised to have lunches and all were excellent. We really liked the lunch we had o要 the second day in Cantho.

2. Guides- all our guides were excellent. They were easy to understand and gave us plenty of good information about the places we visited.

3. Cars: all the drivers were very helpful and o要 time. After sightseeing, they were always waiting to pick us up promptly.

Again, thank you Huy for a wonderful holiday. We all have some great memories of Vietnam.

Xinchao Thuan,

I am so sorry for the delay in replying, but it has been straight back to work and a busy schedule! Please feel free to use the comments below and attached photos in any way you seem fit.

Marie (my wife) and I enjoyed our Vietnam trip very much. It was a pleasure for me to show her Vietnam so she could understand my liking for the country. I also enjoyed revisiting many familiar places ( it's amazing how you see things from a different perspective second time around) and visiting many new o要es.

Our guides in each city were great. Thanks to Long and Pham (Hanoi), Chuc (Hue), Toan (Nhatrang), Tu (Mekong delta), for a job well done. You are all knowlegable, friendly, reliable, punctual, kind, and you even helped my with my language practice! The water provided free of charge was appreciated too.
Thanks too for the aid and assistance of the various drivers.

The food was good (isn't it always?) and all the hotels we stayed in were great.

I will be back in Vietnam next year to work again and will certainly use your excellent company in the future when I travel o要 holidays. I recommend tailormadevietnamholidays.com to everybody who has the wish and desire to see the beautiful and unique country of Vietnam.

Thank you again for a great Vietnam trip.

Dear Huy and Dzung,

I apologize for taking so long to respond to you. It has been a very busy week.

Regarding the meals, they were excellent. The o要e we would recommend is the Snake restaurant in Hanoi. It was superb. The o要ly o要e we did not care for too much was the o要e in the Hotel in Hanoi, but it is still fine. Overall the meals were excellent. We would just recommend ordering slightly less food.

The guides were all excellent and we would recommend each of them. Tu and Truong were particularly good and considerate. All of the guides gave us shopping and bargaining advice. Truong taught us some vietnamese (although we were not the best students). We appreciate the early starts in some places in order to beat the crowds. Also, Dzung moved things around in our schedule to accommodate our shopping requests. We saw everything o要 the itinerary and got the souvenir shopping done that we wanted to.

The cars and drivers were all good. However, I would note that the driving in Dalat scared us a bit Lots of honking and passing of other cars/trucks. You may want to warn customers that driving in Vietnam is a bit wild.

Regarding website comments, I would note that the tours were all done very well - very good accommodations, including seating at various events and hotel locations. The guides were very conscientious, knowledgeable, punctual, and accommodating to our requests. Food was excellent and abundant.

The o要ly suggestions we would have is to include a day or two of different things, such as a tai chi lesson, cooking lesson, bike ride in the country, etc. Something to breakup the visits to the historical sites and museums.

If you need anything else, please let me know.
