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.

    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!

    Had the most amazing time on the Vietnam Highlights tour! Everything was planned out so well and the whole trip ran very smoothly. Matt even planned/suggested spots for lunch/dinner or a good night out after a day full of sight-seeing. Made the experience even more enjoyable!
