Travel to Vietnam & Cambodia

We returned from our trip yesterday, and I wanted to write you about our experiences now, before the din of daily life begins again. Thank you very much for the care and attention you and your staff provided our family; it was an awesome experience!

 

Our guides made the trip.  (Guide) in Hanoi greeted us at the airport and took care of our every need.  He went out of his way to share personal experiences as well as historical highlights, and we knew we were in expert hands as we maneuvered through the challenging city traffic with him by our side.  A few of the highlights in Hanoi were the electric car ride through the Old Town and lunch at a local place specializing in Bu Cha that he recommended.  When it was time to say good-bye, he also helped us secure our airline tickets and get everything arranged before leaving.  These little touches meant the world to us.

 

(He) was no easy act to follow, and (Guide) in Saigon did not disappoint.  He has a hilarious sense of humor, and he and his driver kept us laughing as they transported us to emotional stops for Americans, including the Cu Chi Tunnels, along the Mekong Delta and to the Military Remnants Museum in Saigon.  His infectious good humor helped balance the impact of these visits. The highlight for our son was the evening Vespa tour on our last night and the meal we had with (Guide) in a local eatery.

 

Our last guide in Cambodia – was also wonderful.  He put up with our panting through the heat and humidity and shared his knowledge of temple history and architecture at each stop along the way.  The circus show on our second night – and our trip to “Pub Street” – are memories that we will cherish.

 

The accommodations were consistently fantastic.  Hanoi’s Metropole was like stepping back in time to a more elegant age, the Saigon Sofitel was perfectly located for evening strolls and had an impressive gym and the resorts in Hoi An and Siem Reap were luxurious and relaxing.  The cruise aboard the Au Cu 1 through Halong Bay delighted us in every way.

 

Now we are back at home, buoyed by our fond memories of everyone and everything we met, and saddened that we had to leave. My husband and I are already tossing around ideas for our next adventure, and we will be sure to turn to you once again for your expert guidance. Thank you, thank you for all you have done to create an unforgettable experience for our family!
