In October 2018 Marion and her friend Glenda visited Vietnam & Cambodia. They planned a very special holiday: a 22 Day Travelbay Tailor Made Private Tour that took them to Hanoi, Ha Long Bay, Sapa, Hue, Hoi An, Ho Chi Minh City, the Mekong Delta and Angkor Wat.
On their return they sent us some wonderful photos and shared the following gorgeous feedback with us:
"You planned the holiday to perfection. I just want to thank you for such an amazing journey. All we had to do was turn up in the hotel lobby, everything else was taken care of.
The guides spoke good English, very knowledgeable, were always on time and in late model cars. We were provided with excellent service and were treated like royalty. I have never been bowed to so much. The hotels you chose for us were of the highest possible standard and centrally located. The guides were so obliging and went beyond being a guide to being our friend.
I especially have to mention Loan in Hanoi, she is absolutely gorgeous. I was very nervous arriving in Hanoi and needed a sim, for my phone, no problem for Loan she goes straight out and buys me one.
The hill tribes in Sapa are amazing. I recommend people go there. The Victoria train was much better than expected and the toilets were clean. The Victoria Hotel in Sapa very special. At all the hotels we stayed at the staff were just amazing and the breakfasts so grand with so many choices.
Ha Long Bay was a highlight. The meals on the overnight cruise were lovely and the kayaking so much fun.
We also enjoyed Hue with a lot of history and I really enjoyed the Dong Ba market.
What a wonderful place Hoi An is and so glad that you recommended an extra day there. The Mekong cruise was also lovely.
In conclusion, Travelbay team you are magnificent, you have great caring people providing top notch service. I cannot recommend you highly enough."
