Good luck to you.

Dzung, this was wonderful, Tralfik was AT the pier.  We were among the first off the ship, (we make it a point to be out early  because we are usually excited to see what a port is like).  Tralfik was smiling and had his sign up hoping we, the first ones to disembark, were his group and we were..  We, on the other hand, were very HAPPY to meet him.  He has a pleasing and warm personality and he toured us to our desires.  Thank you so much Dzung for this excursion.  This is what we had hoped and looked forward to.  As for the Hotel, Dzung, thank you so much for being part of the the upgrade for us.  That is a magnificent hotel.  We loved every minute of it Thank you Dzung for helping us see and experience your part of the world.  It was a part of the world with interesting history that made me think of our creator.  Giving us so much variety in culture, architectural and flora design, economic goals, spiritual pursuits.  Wonderful for our memory. 

 Thank you again for everything.

We've just returned from a fast (5 day) trip to Minnesota for a family wedding.  This made it 15 flights in 34 days for us.  11 in Vietnam.  I will send photos later but I wanted to say mahalo again and again for arranging such a wonderful trip for us this year.
The transfer driver in Hanoi (Mr. Trung) was professional, courteous, and always there when we expected him....all five transfers.
The young guide in Sapa to BacHa market was fun and full of energy.  He led me to some excellent 'face' pictures in the market.
Laos:  what a fantastic experience.  The guide, Nong, in Vientiane showed us so many beautiful sights and taught us much about the history.  He was courteous, professional and a pleasure to be with.  Mr. To(Soukasane) in Pakse went out of his way for us.  My husband 'admired' the orange shirt a toll-collector on one of the roads was wearing...orange is my husband's favorite color of the year.  When he picked us up for our return to the Pakse airport he handed my husband a package of the very same orange cloth from which the toll collector's shirt was made because he couldn't find a shirt in any shop in Pakse (Bill had it tailored into a shirt in HoiAn...pics to follow).  He suggested an elephant ride at the end of the day on the Boloven Plain...we were tired and said, no thanks.  On second thought we decided to do that when we returned from the Vat Phou river trip....we did...and what a grand time we had.  Elephants are my favorite animals (we lived in South Africa for 4 years and saw many African elephants there.)  Mr. Boonliep was a great source of information and humor on our Vat Phou trip...and what a boat!  Wonderful.  There was only one other couple on it at the same time so we felt very privileged.
Hoi An....a day trip to Chu Lai where my husband re-visited some of the area where he had been as a very young Marine in 1967.  Quyen was especially knowledgeable and considerate on this day.
NhaTrang....the Evason Hideaway.  No words to describe this luxury.  Enh, our 'butler' for beach villa 18 was an outstanding example of the friendliness of those from Vietnam.  Thank you for booking us into the Hideaway.  We have always stayed at the Resort and Spa in NhaTrang and didn't know quite what to expect from the Hideaway.  Now we're torn as to whether we can go back to the resort and spa or always book into the Hideaway.  We were able to make an earlier departure from the Hideaway  on our last day (thanks to the management and our butler, Enh) so we could have lunch with Chef David at Ana Mandara and see his daughter, Ana, who is such a delight!  What an exquisite time in that whole area.
Back again to the Renaissance Riverside...river view room (at our request) I can sit for long periods watching the activity on the river while Bill walks the city.  The 'news' in VN was that the Park Hyatt is THE PLACE to be....I don't know.  I find it hard to improve on the Renaissance.
I will send pictures but wanted to say a belated thanks for the amazing trip.  We're ready to go again so will be checking out itineraries for next year....any suggestions?

Dear Kim,

We travelled with Ken Langley on August 12th 2006 to Vietnam and Cambodia on a trip  that you had organised for us.
 We had a wonderful time and learnt so much about these beautiful countries.
Every guide we had was excellent. They were informative and entertaining , extremely courteous and greatly added to our enjoyment of the holiday. They all spoke very good English. The drivers were all very careful and punctual.
We very much enjoyed the choice of locations which were very varied.
Thank you all for your efforts. Please pass on our comments.

Richard and Lynn Worsnop.

Dear Phuong Lien,

We have now returned to Australia following our visit to Vietnam.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your beautiful country.
We wish to thank you for all your assistance with hotel and airline bookings. The 3 hotels I booked through your website were all very enjoyable and the staff were very welcoming.
We would not hesitate to use your services again if we make another trip to the area.

Many thanks again

Hello Minh!

Mt friends and I enjoyed a trip you organised for us last October, our names are Cheryl Peter Fornasiero and Joy and Ian Clark. Everything was so very well organised that I have had no hesitation in recommending you to some friends of mine who may want to do something similar. Your friend Mr Tony or so we called him was also very reliable and a wonderful host as you were yourself, we have no hesitation in recommending you and wondering if you are still with the same company and able to help our friends if they decide to contact you.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Dear Pham Thi

I just wanted to extend our thanks to you for organizing such a fantastic trip.  We enjoyed everything and our guide in Cambodia was particularly good Mr Onn.
I have to say we were a little worried about the night train to Sapa but there were no problems and it reminded us a little of our camping trips, sleeping in a confined space.
If you have a survey or something that you would like us to complete please send it to us we would be happy for you to use our quotes as future recommendations and we will definitely refer your company to our family and friends.
Best regards.

Attention of Dzung.

We have recently returned from Vietnam & Cambodia.
We had a truly marvellous holiday including an Endless Mekong Delta Tour  organized by yourself. Everything on the tour was first class including the Tour Guides who could not have been more helpful or informative. Thank you in particular for all the help you gave us before we left the U.K. with regards to our Visas and other information. We will certainly be visiting Vietnam next year and will happily entrust our arrangements with you.

Many thanks

Dear Mr. Dzung, 

Yes we had a fabulous time, and we are now back into our old routine.  I would have written sooner, but we went right from Cambodia to Okinawa, because Larry had to go to some classes.

The first part of our trip, the Hanoi and Sapa portions, were so interesting, and we loved our guide, PyTree (sp).  His love for his country and his pride in his people, just made us also love and care for the people.  What a beautiful country, and what hard working people.
The HaLong Bay portion of our trip was remarkable.  What a BEAUTIFUL place, and we so enjoyed the boat.  The people were very nice, and the food was delicious!  And of course, PyTree was so knowledgeable, and so fun.
The HoChiMing City portion of our trip was very interesting.  The War Museum and the Cuchi Tunnels were rather unsettling, but interesting.  Our guide was excellent, and very caring.  I got sick while on the river, and he was so kind and helpful.
We loved the hotel in Cambodia, as it was new and beautiful.   Our guide was VERY knowledgeable, and spoke very clearly.  He was very good.  We thought that all of the temples were amazing. 
We wish to thank you for helping us to see you beautiful country.  We thank you for the excellent guides, and for the wonderful itinerary.  It was everything and more, than we expected.
We will not hesitate to tell all of our friends, who might wish to come to Vietnam, to contact you.  Ours was truly a trip of a lifetime.
Sincerely, Joan Allen

Hi Dzung,

It was good to meet you last week.
We had a great holiday in Vietnam….thanks to your care and that of your staff. Long was an excellent guide… he managed to just ‘get it right’, not easy when there are always changing circumstances.
Best regards, until the next time…..

Dear Discovery Indochina,

We want to thank you again for a wonderful trip to Vietnam and Cambodia. Your company provided excellent value and was well organized. We would definitely recommend your services to other tourists! We have already mentioned you on
www.frommers.com and will also mention you on other popular U.S. travel websites. We were impressed by the schedule youcreated for us, the hotels, transportation, and guides.

Of our three guides, two were excellent: Ms Nguyen Thi Lan, and Mr Ha Van Sy. Both were full of knowledge of Vietnam, enthusiasm, friendliness, and energy. Both made us feel very welcome, and that they were happy to teach us as much as possible about Vietnamese culture and history. We would recommend Discovery Indochina uses their services as much as possible! We will remember Lan and Sy as two of the wonderful people we met in your county, who helped make our trip very special.

Our guide in Siem Reap, Mr Singah (I do not know the spelling of his name) had very good English and knowledge of Cambodia. He answered all of our questions, but should sometimes work on acting friendlier.  

Our driver in Siem Reap was very good, and always had cold water for us in the car. This was a wonderful service, and you might want all of your drivers tokeep water.

One last comment is that I was sometimes confused when communicating with your office. Some of my questions were answered, and some were not. Different people emailed me, and I did not know if I had a contact person within your office. It must be very hard at your end, since you conduct your business in different languages, but I wanted to let you know how it felt from my end. 

Overall, we had an excellent experience with your company, and would definitely use your services again. Thank you for all of your hard work putting together our trip!

Hi Phuong Lien (Ms)

We have just returned from Halong Bay and it was a really good experience - it exceeded our expectations. The boat/hotel was fantastic. I will highly recommend it.

Actually our trip has gone quite well this last 8 days. The guide we had in Hoi An and Hue was really terrific - very knowledgeable - I highly commend and recommend him - we had a really good time there as well.
 Thanks so much for your efforts to make our holiday a wonderful experience. I will recommend your services to others.

Dear Dzung,

We are writing to you now from our home in France to give you some feedback about the last part of our wonderful trip through Vietnam.
We enjoyed our excursion in the Mekong Delta very much, especially thanks to the excellent guide, Mr Hung. He was extremely qualified, very professional, and spoke excellent French. His presence contributed considerably to our appreciation of this special region, giving us insight into the many aspects of life around the delta.
We found Vietnam to be a fascinating country, with beautiful scenery, nice people, and a rich culture. We hope to be able to return again, and when we do we will certainly contact you for help with our arrangements. Meanwhile, we will recommend your services to the people around us.
Wishing you all the best, and regards to the other members of your staff.

Dear Nguyen Viet Dzung,

I want to personally thank you for all the help you provided us on our visit to Vietnam.  We had excellent guides and I have personnally thanked them all.  They were all good at their jobs and were wonderful representatives of your country, especially Phan Tuan Anh in Saigon and Nioh Hai in Hoian.  You have the best guides.  I have written a recommendation on the websites for your company and hopefully you will continue the good service you provided us.   I also appreciated the refund you provided us on the differences in the hotels.  I will also recommend you to others.
Thank you again.

Just to say thank you for your all your help in organising our flights in Vietnam. We had a great trip and look forward to coming back to Vietnam again soon.



24th Feb,06

Dear Dzung,

Thank you for organizing our recent trip. We enjoyed it, we realize that February was not the optimum time of year for touring certain parts of north Vietnam. The highlights of our visit were the trip to Mai Chau, staying in the village, and Hue, that certainly deserved three more days than we spent there. Both Hanoi and Hoi An are spoilt with the motor cycles, blocking the pavement, the road, and the petrol fumes were most unpleasant, it must be much worse for the residents, tourists can go home. Hoi An is small and the town authorities do seem to be trying to control the motor cycles, they need the support of people like yourself in the tourist industry. All the drivers  you assigned to us were very good, careful and slow where necessary yet they did not waste time. We enjoyed the company of the guides, knowlegeable and friendly. We enjoyed the tour and would recommend you to others.

Thanks and best regards,

20th Feb,06


Now we are back in Sweden again after our trip in Vietnam. The hotels, train  and flights was very good. We also get breakfast and lunch at the train  included in the ticket. It was many beautiful views when we travel  through your country and the people was helpful and kindly. Thanks again for your help to realize our trip.

Kindly regards

Dear Dzung
We are now back home again - Thank you for all your help with our trip to Thailand/Laos. You did a great job also this time.
Ayuthaya and Sukhothai were very interesting especially as we visited the Wat Angkor last year. It was interesting to see Chiang Mai with surroundings and the tour by car to Chiang Rai.
The New Years Eve in Chiang Mai was spectacular. We are happy that we did this part of Thailand before we went to Laos.
As you know we stared our visit in Laos with the The Pak Ou boat down the Mekong river for two days to Luang Prabang. A perfect slow boats for leisurely river travel. It was a little cold in the morning, but later on it was great.
Luang Prabang, a UNESCO World Heritage City, was a great positive surprise. Luang Prabang is a very beautiful city with an interesting history. We stayed only three nights, but had been happy to spend another three night at this lovely place.
Vientienne was also interesting and we took long walks looking around. There were many places to see and visit.
The rural south was different - we liked it very much. The Khmer temple of Vat Phou another UNESCO World Heritage site was beautiful. The lovely waterfall of Khone Phapheng, the nature, the elephant ride in the jungle.
Laos is just great - all the guides we had did a very good job. The hotels were good, the shopping was great fun, the food was excellent, and the people were very nice. We saw many interesting places, among other things all beautiful temples and are very satisfied.
We can recommend this trip to all friends as we loved every minute.
My husband and I will come back to this part of the world again and hope you can help us then again.
Best regards

Dear Dzung

First of all , I would like to thank you for organising our holiday in Vietnam, my wife and I had a wonderful experience, one I think we will remember for quite a while , we are still enjoying our photographs and talking about what we did and saw in Vietnam….

We found Tuan to be a great guide, he had a good sense of humour , was able to answer all of our questions, and was able to communicate well with his knowledge of the English language., he put a great effort into our project in Sapa, so much so, that I don’t think we would have had time to complete the concrete floor at  Lao chai school without his help.

I have told Antips that I would like to come back to Sapa, so maybe one day we could once again meet up maybe doing another project… Steven want to organise a water generator for the school so that the teachers can prepare their lessons at night, rather than use a candle for light, so maybe this will be another project to look at…

I have included a small package for a small boy from Lao chai school I’m not quite sure of his name I think he told me his name was Nguyen. He became a very good friend of mine while I was at the school , and I told him I would send him a copy of the photo’s I took of him and his younger brother. I would really appreciate if you could get them to him when you next go to the school in Lao Chai…

I have also included a cap and some marbles which I hope you will be able to give him as a gift from me , and a return letter if he want’s to send me a letter…

I would like to thank you again, for a wonderful holiday, and hope one day to see you in Vietnam.
