Group Traveller

Our friend Kathy booked a few different tours with Ms. Nga. She was very on top of things and quick to respond, making communication very easy and the planning very smooth. Apart from two amazing experiences in Halong Bay (Signature Cruise) and Sapa (Panorama), they also helped us arrange transportations and short term accommodations in between. Would definitely recommend this agency :)!
