We didn't have to organise anything with regards to transport and accommodation and our guide went out of his way to organise "family" dinners and cool places to hang out and club.

    Lisa guided Contiki Vietnam highlight tour pretty well. English is not my mother tongue, so I have difficulty not catch all the verbal information correctly. She patiently repeats the information to me if I ask her, and her written itinerary does help me get the idea quickly. She also could provide me some useful information when I have to spend my spare time around the city. Thanks for her information, the tour is overall over my expectation.

    Greg was an amazing lad, extremely well prepared and fun at the same time. Always knew the answers to your questions, purely from doing his own research and couldnt have been more pleased to have Greg as our trip leader. Greg had the perfect mix of culture, partying, history and most importantly knew where to get the best feeds!

    I travelled with Lisa on the Contiki Vietnam Highlights tour in January 2017 and she's an excellent tour manager and guide. She was always super organized with all of the logistics and I never had a problem knowing what was going on. Whenever we ran into an issue with travelling, she was quick to comfort and assure the others of what was happening and keep them smiling with her infectious energy. She's super fun and suggested great activities and restaurants for the group. Couldn't have asked for more in a trip manager!

    Matt was awesome, the trip was amazing and overall couldnt ask for more. I would suggest this trio to anyone with a thirst for adventure and little time to do it in. Matt added his own falovoyr with family dinners and suggestions for where to go out, which made our exoerience even better and brought us closer. Great trip!
