A Recent Review of this tour

Tony was informed, interesting and very knowledgeable about Vietnamese history and culture. His tour was superb and included a "local lunch" which was the tastiest food we have enjoyed in Vietnam. The organisation including the driver and the routes chosen was also superb. I would highly recommend Tony.
