review 17 Feb 2012

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Meeting the people of Vietnam's central highlands, including our guides.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Be friendly!! We notice that Europeans especially seem to be wary of encountering the very people they've come to meet. Talk to them, say please and thank you, and SMILE!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

We came from Vietnam's central highlands with an understanding of their great needs and the great help we can provide.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent in all ways. Ms. Thanh Ha of the operatorís Saigon office provided detailed information and reminders, and she met us in Saigon to make sure everything was as we hoped.
