Destination: Hanoi - Halong Bay - Sapa
Dear Ms. Jenny,
We have arrived back at Singapore last week safely!
Just wanted to thank you for your services through out these months! The tour (13th-20th December 2013) was fantastic!
Bella Vita Hotel is great (though abit far from Old Quarter but the food around there is excellent!), King Express Train ride was good! V'Spirit Cruise was good as well!
Special mentioned to Sapa Unique Hotel as i feel the stay and the hotel view was excellent, Bosses were very accommodating, the food they provided is fantastic as well.
A pity that we did not get to meet you as I will wish to thank you personally for helping us out with the postponement of our trip and also to provide us with an alternative vouchers for our insurance claim.
We have a wonderful time in Hanoi-Halong Bay-Sapa. We will definitely go back to Vietnam next time. Probably to Ho Chih Minh, Danang, Hue and other places in Vietnam! Looking forward till then and book the tour through your company again!!
Many Thanks once again! Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Thanks & Regards
Sim Stanley
