We had a fantastic holiday – Vietnam was everything that I had heard it to be and hoped it to be.

The hotels were all top notch – particularly The Metropole. The Boutique Hoi An was fantastic – a beautiful white sand beach, great pool area, and wonderful newly renovated rooms that were very big – and it was only a 5 minute shuttle to Hoi An itself. The Caravelle was really nice too –
though the rooms a little dated. Wonderful breakfasts though.

The guides we had were brilliant – it would be hard to do without them. The Ho Chi Minh city tour and Mekong Delta tour were great. The Hoi An walking tour was a bit of a waste of time – we kind of only got taken to places that people are pushing stuff on you to buy, but the farm tour (which I thought would not be great) was so much fun, and a great surprise as it included a cooking class.

The tour of Hanoi was also great. The trip to Halong and the overnight cruise I loved – my two daughters and husband enjoyed it but felt there should have been wifi on the boat we were on!!! First world problem!! But I guess its something that is now really important. It appears they state on their website that wifi is available.

Vietnam Air was great. Our only issue was on the Vietjet flight – we should have stuck with Vietnam Air – our flight from Hoi An to Hanoi was cancelled – no notification – and we had a rather long wait at the airport for the next one.

But all in all a fab time was had by all of us. Thanks for your help with organising our trip!
