Our recent trip (our 4th) to Vietnam was made exceptional because of the wonderful care and bookings you made for us. The 'culinary tour' (now shown as the gourmet tour) exceeded our expectations. We're anxious to try making some of the wonderful happy crepes and spring rolls a la Mrs. Cuc. The guides in Hanoi (Mr. Phuong) and Hue/HoiAn (Mr. Vinh) were absolutely perfect. I've sent my thanks to each personally. We are interested in the boat, Vat Phou, on the Mekong to Laos.  After the boat trip we would continue to Hanoi and would like to go to Sapa. Please feel free to add my testimonial to your pages...and include my email address so I can tell people how wonderful each trip has been.

Just want to drop a note to say that my husband and I had a wonderful trip at Sapa during our visit to your beautiful country. The guide (Hoa) that you arranged for us was excellent. He was friendly, patient, knowledgeable and responsible. The drivers that accompanied us were also excellent and responsible. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly throughout the trip and we thank you for the excellent service provided. We will definitely sign up for future tours to the region with your company.

Best wishes,
Ling Singapore.

Dear Dzung,

Great trip!  We all enjoyed it. Visiting Lisu Lodge was a good experience.  The weather was good so we didn't need A/C.  We saw 4 groups, the Lisu, the Hmong, the Ahka, and the Karen. We really like Chiangmai as it is a lot easier because of the traffic.

Thank you for getting the lady guides.  Both were very good and it made Chris happy to have another female along.  Both Hathaicinok (Natalie) and Meyo went out of their way to be helpful. I would most definitely recommend them.

Weather wise were again very fortunate.  We had rain only when it was going to impact what we were doing, i.e., it rained at night or while we were driving.  The exception was when we were riding the boat between the Royal Orchid and the Oriental to have dinner.  We hit a monsoon, but luckily the porters had beach umbrellas to get us inside.  Quite the experience.

On the way to the elephant training center we stopped at the elephant hospital.  What a nice thing that lady has done.  We are all glad Natalie suggested the stop as it was one of the highlights of the trip and something everyone back here wants to know about.  The elephant training center was also very interesting.
Hoa Hin beach and the Sofitel were a delight at the end of the trip.  It was a nice place to relax and do very little.  We only spent 1/2 hour walking the town all the rest of the time was around the pool / beach or at the spa.  That hotel is really very lovely with the old world elegance.  The internet there is much good though and I gave them bad comments  on that.
We need to do Thailand again and have more time to shop.  We've seen enough temples at this point.  They were really beautiful and outstanding structures.  But, as you know we like to shop and we didn't really do any in Bangkok or anywhere else except Chiangmai.  The shopping there was good but we needed more time.  We had a problem with weight for our luggage ( 20 kg for the flight on Thai Air between Chiangemai and Bangkok) so we couldn't buy very much.
Again, thanks for all your work getting us organized.  It could have been a lot easier and it is our fault for not getting organized sooner. 
Hope all is well in Hanoi.

Hello Mrs Kim,

Sorry for the delay in getting this back to you.  We had a wonderful time in Vietnam.  Your country is so interesting and the people so friendly.
Guides were very friendly, helpful and had an excellent local knowledge. It was good to have someone to rely on to sort out any enquiries as far as forward travel goes and ensuring that we were comfortable and happy.  We felt that we could trust our guides and that they had our best interests at heart.  We liked that we had quite a bit of free time but could spend that relaxing rather than trying to work out how to get around.  It was good to have the tours and guides to cover the general knowledge of the city and history of the area.   Hotels were of excellent quality.  We would certainly recommend your tours to others. 
Thank you very much for all your help and pass on our satisfaction to all our guides.

We look forward to travelling with Discovery Indochina again very soon.

Dear Dzung,

We are having a great time.  The itinerary is interesting  varied, just like we like it. Our guide, Natalie, was wonderful.  Today we have a new guide for
this area.  We are off to Lisu today.

More later,

Ed and Chris

Dear Kim,

We arrived home only today, after having to wait a day in Bangkok for our flight back to Israel.

Our visit in Vietnam was WONDERFUL! The tour to Sapa was GREAT, and so was our stay in Hanoi.

I have to apologize for nagging you about the Melia. The Guoman hotel was very-very good. We enjoyed each and every minute in it! 

Your entire service was EXCELLENT! Both Ariella and me were very pleased with all you did for us, and needless to say that we'll recommend you gladly to our friends and acquaintances.

It was very nice meeting you. After all the letters we had written to each other it was important for me to see you in person. 

Thank you again not only for your service but also for being so patient with us. I know we weren't easy clients. I hope you forgive us for that.

Please give our regards to Fong. He was a good guide and a nice person and we liked him very much.

wish you happiness and all the best in the world. May you have an easy birth-giving to a healthy beautiful baby.

Faithfully yours



Thank you so much for all your help on my visit to Vietnam this month.  It was nice to be in such capable hands and I had no problems with any of the arrangements you made for me.  I have already recommended Discovery Indochina Tours to some people and look forward to using your company again on future visits to Vietnam.  The train travel for me was wonderful because you get to meet so many wonderful people and relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery of your country.  The drivers and guides you provided were also knowlegable and professional.

Dear Dzung,

 I just wanted to thank you for all of your help and assistance in
planning our trip to Cambodia and Laos.  We both had a truly wonderful
time.  The guides were very professional, helpful and friendly. Their
English was very good and they were easily understood.

Have fun on your adventure in Burma.

Thanks again,

Just had to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our trip.
All the hotels were good. Hoi An  were wonderful, what a beautiful place.

On the whole we had a fantastic time, and what a way to end our trip with a cruise in Halong Bay absolutely breathtaking. The service on board was excellent and our guide  whose name was Sy was very helpful and his knowledge of Vietnam and his very good English was a real treat. We will be recommending your company to friends.
Meamwhile we have lots of good pics and video footage to keep our memories fresh. Thank you so much, you truly have a wonderful country.                          

Yours sincerely

Dear Dzung,
We have been back from our trip to Vietnam for a few weeks now and it seems like it was a dream. Our excursions to the Perfume Pagoda, Halong Bay, Sapa and Keng Ha Floating Village were all breathtaking. Hanoi is a beautiful, vibrant city and we found the people to be very friendly and helpful.
Thank you for helping us to organize a very interesting tour. Our guides were very knowledgeable, helpful and patient as we made numerous stops along the road for photographs.

Our photos will help us to remember the emerald waters of Halong Bay and kayaking through caves leading to peaceful lakes surrounded by mountains. The faces and costumes of the ethnic minority peoples of Sapa and surrounding villages will always be remembered along with the terraced rice fields of this mountainous region.

All transfers and connections organized by Discovery Indochina went smoothly from airport pickups to Victoria Express train rides & pickups to the various small boat trips during our stay in the north.
We will always have fond memories of our time in Vietnam and will be happy and confident to recommend your company to friends.

Thank you again for making our visit a very positive experience.

Dear Kim,

My family and I would like to say a big thank you for organizing our trip to the Mekong Delta.

A very special commendation and thank you to our guide Nguyen Luc and the  driver. Luc was very informative about daily life in Vietnam and the stops  along the way on the first day were very interesting.

The Victoria Can Tho hotel was very nice and we really enjoyed visiting the  floating markets.

Everything went as organized and we were very grateful that out boats on the  river on both days had protection from the sun.

Again thank you very much for an interesting snap shot of life in Vietnam.

Dear Dzung

I do hope this finds you well. 
We are now back in London after 7 weeks of travelling, and the first day back at work has been quite a challenge.
The reason I write, is that I just wanted to formally acknowledge how much we appreciated your involvement in our Vietnam trip.  We had the most fantastic time and it was most certainly made so, by your organisation prior to departure and the fabulous nature of your staff.  In particular I would like to mention Hung (driver) and Luc (guide) in HCMC and Hi (guide) in Hoi An.  They were truly professional, efficient, knowledgeable – but most importantly great company.
We have already discussed a return trip to Vietnam and are in the process of trying to recruit family in New Zealand to join us.
If this is the case, we would most certainly use your service again and would recommend friends and family planning to visit your country, without hesitation.

Many thanks once again

Hi Mr Dzung

I just wanted to reinforce the comments made during our tour in the company’s feedback forms now we have returned to Australia.
The tour exceeded our expectations in terms of the quality of the hotels, places we visited and of course your company’s very professional guides and drivers. I would unhesitatingly recommend your company to any prospective tourists who wish to talk to me about our experiences. Several of my friends have in fact been awaiting our return to hear about our tour. I’m sure that over the next year or so, your company will be used by some of our friends when they are planning their visit to Vietnam. I am also very comfortable for you to provide my telephone and email contact details to any Australians who may come across your website and are unsure whether to proceed with a booking.
I look forward to being of assistance to other potential users of your company’s services.

Best wishes to you and your very fine staff.

Dear Nguyen Viet Dzung,

we are from Viet Nam vacation back and would like you to thank you. They prepared the journey very well. Every thing was really well organised. We saw and are inspired much of Viet nam. If someone  from our well-know to Viet Nam wants to fly we will recommend Discovery Indochina. .
Again many thank you
E. Grebenovsky 


Thank you for organizing our trip in Vietnam
We had an excellent time and it all went smoothly. We will recommend Discovery Indochina to our friends and will also write to the guide book we use “The Rough Guide to Vietnam” and “Lonely Planet”.
The guide you arranged for us in Sapa was fantastic – He was called Tran Huynh – we would really recommend you use him for travelers. He has a lovely manner and he is very knowledgeable. He was their to greet  us so early in the morning on our arrival to introduce himself and explain the itinerary – we did not expect this level of service and we think it was superb. He also traveled back to Lao Cai with us and the driver to ensure we got on the train safely.

Thank you so much for all your help
Kind regards
Annie and Richard Hurren

Hello Dzung,

First of all I am sorry it has taken so long to write. We arrived home on December 8th and it has been hectic ever since. However, the memories of our wonderful trip to Vietnam are still vivid in our minds (Jochen took nearly 1000 photos!) and Jochen and I want to thank you for all your hard work and organization. We were in Vietnam and Cambodia for a little over 4 weeks and everything you arranged for us was perfect. Someone was always there to assist us and the guides were all informative and fun! As you know, we were a little nervous about making all our arrangements with someone on the internet whom we didn't know. But you promised us we would be well taken care of and you kept your promise. You did a fabulous job for us. We loved your country and it's people from the minority tribes of Sapa to Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City and everyplace in between. We will be travelling to Vietnam again soon and when we do we will contact you again for your assistance. I really feel like we have a friend in you and we look forward to seeing you again. All our best and Happy New Year!!

Dear Dzung

I just wanted to write and say thank you very much for your excellent organisation of our recent trip to Vietnam.  We were really happy with your suggestions for hotels and transport.   We also very much appreciated your flexibility when we wanted to change our plans slightly during the trip.   You remember, I was a little  hesitant about using a company from the internet that I didn't know, however, your reassurance and quality of service allayed any fears I had.  Please feel free to use us as a reference if you have any customers who are a little uncertain in the future.

I will be putting others in touch with you soon following our trip, many of our friends said that were considering Vietnam for their next holiday.  Thank you again.

Best regards

Dear Mr. Dzung,

We are back home since a couple of days and it was not that easy to cope with daily life after the lovely days we spent in Vietnam. I just wanted to thank you for the really perfect organisation of the trip - which made it so easy to do the rather full schedule, which we have chosen for our stay. Vietnam is a really impressing country - and we enjoyed the different places very much - I for myself must say that especially the trip up to Sa Pa touched me quite a lot and I would like to come back once more - perhaps another year in Springtime. Also the helpfulness and kindness of all our guides was quite touching.
So it's just to say "Thank you" - if you need any recommendations for another group, please feel free to state our names and we would be ready to give any recommendation needed with pleasure.
With all our best wishes

24th Jan,05

Dear Mr. Dzung,

as You may see, beginning from today I finally got a new private e-mail  address under which you may reach me from now onwards.

But the main purpose of this mail is to express once again our warmest  thanks to You for all You have done for us in organising our holiday.  It was a memorable trip we enjoyed extraordinally. And - second  purpose, to recommend You heartily the young guide we had the day  for the excursion to Perfume Pagoda, Mr. Cuong (?): he was simply  great, the best guide we ever had.

Last point: We couldn´t reach the Kueffners yet and give your present
to them, they are ... on a holiday-trip!

With all our best wishes

Phnom Penh - Our guide was a nice person and did his best.
Ho Chi Minh City - Our guide - A young bright guy, he was little shy to begin with.We liked him very much. This guide has big potential when he get more experienced.
Danang - and Hue - Our guide was a nice young man. He did his best.                            

The hotel Furama Resort was excellent.
Hanoi  - Our guide was very good and have good knowledge. His English was also good. A very nice person. This guide - keep him and take good care of him.

Hi Dzung and Nam!

This is a message to say hi and thank you both for making our St Aidans trip so fantastic.  I have spoken to Danielle and Colin  and told them how impressed
we were with the service and support provided by you  and your company.  I made our trip so much more rewarding  to have Nam as our guide.  I can't speak highly enough of Nam,  he is a terrific guide and has become a good friend of myself and the
group.  I look forward to meeting with you again in the future on  other Antips trips! On a personal note, I would like to thank Nam and Tuong for being such professional, generous and friendly guides.  Without them, I have no doubt, our trip would not have been as successful and fun as it was.  Nam - you are a legend!
I have some photos of Nam's girlfriend and I will send them by post, as there are too many to attach, hopefully he receives them.
Please keep in touch, and I look forward to building upon the friendship we have established so far!
Michael Ellis (Mr Mai Chau!)

Dear Dzung,
Just to thank you for all your hard work, help and efficiency in booking our great trip to Vietnam and Cambodia.  Your rapid response was always appreciated. As our children grow older it becomes harder to find things that all four of us are likely to enjoy together, but Vietnam and Cambodia pleased us all. We especially enjoyed the boat trips in Halong Bay and the Mekong Delta, the beautiful Victoria Hotel in Phanthiet, the view of HCMC from the 7th floor of the Majestic Hotel, the historic sites and Vietnam's  and Cambodia's interesting history and, of course, the shopping!  In fact too many excellent memories and sites to list.
Our guides were all impressive - always on time with a good command of English, helpful and excellent local knowledge.
We are even talking about coming back again in the not too distant future.
May I wish you a very happy, healthy and peaceful 2005.  We can only hope and pray that the terrible events of 26th December in SE Asia are helped and healed  in as short a time as possible.
Very best wishes
