Review from Brian Family

May I take this opportunity to say thank you to you and the entire crew for the lovely 11 days we spent in Vietnam. It was just great!
A special thank to the two guides who have shown real flexibility as well as the three drivers who always drove carefully. In addition also to the crew on the boat in Halong Bay. This was definitely a highlight of our tour!
The hotels were excellent and the crew in La Ferme du Colvert extremely friendly. It goes without saying that the hotel was simpler but the food and the environment was outstanding! The (lunch) restaurants in Mai Chau, Hue and Hoi An were extremely good. Unfortunately, the one on the way to Ninh Binh was not good (food quite poor, dirty).
Unfortunately, I underestimated the distance between the locations. Maybe because of the street conditions. Recommend to update the travel time in your itinerary.
Nevertheless, great holidays, superb hotels, friendly staff, delicious food and a lot of interesting culture.
Thanks again for everything!

It’s time to say THANK YOU. It was a really great trip into the halong bay:
perfect crew, perfect group and a perfect dinner in the cave with a perfect birthday surprise for my boyfriend. We’ll never forget it and recommend you and Origin Travel in every case.
From germany in the beginning springtime (12 degrees !!!) many greetings and keep care of you and your ideas
Everything you arranged for us was fantastic. The driver to Halong Bay was very careful and safe. The guides were all informative and most helpful. The girl in Hoi An lost her receipts but we saw everything. The best bits were Mekong Delta cycle and Hi was very kind. The sailing in Ha Long Bay will always be remembered by us and the food and service wonderful.
Till next time

Good morning Ruby,
We had a wonderful trip, thank you for everything! There was a lot of fog in Halong Bay for our trip but we were lucky that our trip did not get cancelled. Everybody aboard the boat was really nice and it was really comfortable and we really enjoyed all the activities and the kayaking and the food was delicious!
Thank you again,
Dear Origin Travel Team,
“Each day was packed with fun. Mr Ruby, our leader was extremely knowledgeable and very proud of his country. In Halong Bay, we were given more variety than expected and the chefs never failed to amaze us with the type of meals and decorations created from our boat. Mr Ruby manage to keep all of the logistics running very smoothly so all we had to do was enjoy ourselves. Overall, it was one of the most amazing trips I have been on and would have no doubt in recommending Mr Ruby’s tours to anyone. I would also like to pass a huge Thank you to Mr Ruby and his team for all of their efforts and educating our group (8 Aussie girls) on his beautiful country.”

Greetings. In between we are safe and sound back in the Netherlands. We like to thank you once again for the excellent Grand Package Tour. We are experienced travelers but we never did a trip which was so well organized. We got a good impression of your beautiful country and its charming people and we will recommend Origin Travel to our friends and once we?ll be back.

Not much to add to our questionnaire responses. It was a great holiday and we enjoyed it immensely. The guides were all good and all arrangements were made promptly and efficiently as per the itinerary.
Only one additional point: the Flower Garden was not a good example of a four star hotel – suggest you use others
We shall recommend your company to others.

Dear Ruby and Daniel,
we would like to thank you for the wonderful experience we had travelling 21 days in Vietnam. Visiting your country gave us awesome sensations, and the added value was the customized organisation we received from you. We have a pleasant souvenir of our guides that helped us to learn a lot about Vietnam, especially you, Ruby, and Mr. Thop from Lao Cai, Mr. Le Cong Minh from Hue and Miss Dove from HCMC, very competent and passionate about their job. They did their best to meet our needs. Thanks to your organization, we felt not stressed and we enjoyed our free time like we wanted to do.
The highlights of our tour have been: the fabolous Halong Bay 3 days cruise on Dragon Pearl Junk (everyone really must try!), the homestays in Ta Van village and in the Mekong Delta, Bac Ha Sunday market, the fantastic Palm Garden Beach Resort in Cua Dai Beach, where we had an upgrade to the bungalow sea view, more than we expected, the charm of the two capital, Hanoi and HCMC, so different cities and so enchanting! But really we liked every site we visited!
We knew that we could count on you in every moment, we had proof of it, and we really appreciated that, when there was a change of hotel in Bac Ha (we did not stay at the hotel expected because of a sudden cancellation from the hotel) you were so prompt to compensate us with a dinner free. And more, we enjoyed very much the Vietnamese cuisine of your selected restaurants.
We’ll recommend Origin VN Travel to our friends.
The only suggestion we give you is updating your itineraries, the tours often take place in a different way. We’ll try to send you our itinerary as we done it.
Have good luck for a bright future!

My trip with your company was the absolute highlight of my time in Vietnam.
Everything went exactly to plan and the timing of everything from the pick up @ my hotel to the delivery back.
The junk it’s self was lovely, the weather was perfect & our English speaking guide was terrific.
The food was better than I could have expected & all the crew were almost invisible & just perfect.
So, yes, I very much enjoyed my trip & will tell many people about your company.
In addition I will contribute my comments to TripAdvisor. As you know, that carries a lot of opinion.
So thank you & I hope I can sail with you again one day soon.
