Vietnam in Ten Days
One year ago my wife and I along with two other couples decided to take a break-away trip at the end of an Overseas Adventure Travels (OAT) trip to China and Tibet into Vietnam for 10 days so we husbands could revisit the country where we served in the military and for our wives to share this return experience. Travel Sense Asia was selected over another Hanoi travel agency due to its assurances of our being able to work cooperatively with them and to have final say on the itinerary.
It was a great experience with two overall minor exceptions. Our excellent local Saigon guide took a chance which worked out but was nevertheless stressful in that were it not for the skill of our driver we probably would have missed the flight to Danang in Central Vietnam owing to the guide thinking we had time for one last stop along the Mekcong Delta. Then in Hanoi we were not informed of how to avoid many corrupt taxi drivers who in almost a criminal manner enforce payment of grossly overcharged fares.
So now let's turn back to the planning of this trip and the outcome. After 12 months of back and forth emails with Mr.Nhat Nam of Travel Sense we endorsed an itinerary of going to Saigon, HoiAn and Hanoi with guides in Saigon and Hanoi but none in HoiAn where we stayed at a beach hotel. When with a guide we had understood authority of being able to alter the day's travels by stopping when we wanted to, change the pace of the day and even the direction of where we went. It could not have gone better with excellent hotels, a luxurious small ship overnight stay on Halong Bay, great sights, the best of food, two world class van drivers, terrific guides, photo opportunities, and none of this without Mr. Nhat Nam's help, cooperation and honesty. It was a wonderful trip.
