Ms. Berry

  1. Guide (s):

Mr. Luong (Guide in the North): Excellent introduction to Vietnam.  Mr. Luong was flexible and responded well to our plane delays due to weather. Even though we arrived at almost 2 am in the morning from China he and his assistant were there with flowers, a sign, and welcoming smiles.   The touring schedule included many sites that were interpreted well by this local guide.  Mr. Luong worked to accommodate our group requests and needs.  Also as a national guide he was able to anticipate and avoid complications. This allowed for smooth transitions between cities.


Mr. Co (Guide in the Centre) Mr. Co was a professional and knowledgeable guide.  He was able to answer the groups’ questions and had a lot of enthusiasm for his work. He provided extensive descriptions and responded quickly to our group needs and requests.


Mr. Tung (Guide in the South) Mr. Tung was a very earnest and knowledgeable guide.  He was able to reroute us to a boat during a traffic jam on the way to hotel which saved us a lot of precious time.


Mr. Sovan (Guide in Siem Reap) Knowledgeable guide who responded to our groups needs and requests.  His work reflected the high calibre of the other guides from the company.
