Trip Report Back from Viet Nam

Jump to last reply

Just wanted to check in with some information. My husband and I returned from Viet Nam in early April after about 12 days of touring. We went to visit our daughter who then traveled with us. I usually design my own trips, but we've mostly traveled in Europe. Because we couldn't drive in Viet Nam (nor would we want to after seeing the traffic), we decided to check out some travel agencies. We compared two. We had a few specific requests of places to go. The one that we hired was Ann Tours run by Tony Nong. We emailed several itineraries back and forth and easily came up with one that suited our needs.We ended up with 3 different for the South, one for the middle and one for the North. They were older, one young and one young with a wife and new baby....all interesting, personable and professional. I got the name of Ann Tours off this website and I'm glad we went with them.
Viet Nam is a fascinating country. We only scratched the surface, but we were fortuante enough through our guides and through our daughter's contacts, to meet people and get a feel for what's happening in the country.
