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

So many highlights! Really enjoyed the Vespa tour after dark in Saigon, the homestay in the Mekong, cooking class at Hoi An, and of course Ha Long/ Bai Tu Long.

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

Consider the time of year for undertaking the trip, it was extremely hot and humid in late July, which was quite draining at times.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Difficult to assess, it would be good to think that some of the monies spent reached the pockets of local people.

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

Enjoyed every single day, the travel arrangements were excellent, and there was the right mix between some days which had a full itinerary- and on others plenty of 'down time' to rest! The hotels were all very comfortable, and the staff couldn't do enough, so friendly.

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

There were many, I would pick Ninh Binh as a fantastic example of Vietnamese landscape. My kids would probably pick the Vespa adventures tour in Ho Chi Min City and my wife the Surnise Hotel in Hoi An.

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

I would suggest to have an idea of the itinerary and the type of trip and then contact a tour operator with a strong knowledge of the country. Tips are invaluable if travelling for the first time there. I also found extremely useful having a local guide and would definitively recommend that as it also helps to understand a lot more about the people and the culture.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Our tour operator used a local company and only local people so I guess that to be case.

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

Fantastic holiday in a fantastic country. Our holiday provider were really good and would recommend them to anyone willing to visit Vietnam. Will definitively use Responsible Travel in the future.
