Anyone used PA Tours / Private Asia Tour Company -Hanoi?

Jump to last reply

Hi,
i'm currently plannng my trip to Vietnam and Cambodia and have been using PA Tours / Private Asia Tour Company based in Hanoi to prepare my itinerary - has anyone ever used this company? as i can find very little when searching for feedback on them - i can only find positive feedback on there website - which looks professional - has anybody heard of them / booked with them?

They have a International Tour Operator Licence #: 01-456/20 11/TCDL-GP LHQT and are members of Member of Vietnam National Administration of Tourism - but im sure anyone could make that up!
Any help please :)

many thanks

    Having stayed in Hanoi for several weeks recently, what I can tell you is there are probably thousands of tour companies in the city. There's a tour operator in every hotel, large and small, offices in storefronts everywhere you go and, as I found out when I wanted to change a flight reservation I'd made in advance of arrival, more in office buildings large and small. I also came to realize I'd likely have been better to wait to make firm reservations and pay for them when I was there. You may decide to use the company you mention, but you might not.

    My plans might be simpler than many trying to pack the most into a few days. But I still think there's something to be said for seeing who we're dealing with to get a better sense of what they'll provide. As with many things in Asia, I've also found that the price can be hugely inflated buying in advance and from far away. The first step in learning this is to wait and make arrangements after arrival for tours and onward travel, both of which are readily available last minute in most cases. Even in places like Burma where we're told that absolutely everything is booked far in advance I found it not necessarily true.
