    5.0 - Excellent

    We had the most incredible time on our Essence of Vietnam tour. Nam Nguyen was our tour guide. He shared his personal experiences and provided us with the most incredible opportunities. We were able to experience Vietnam in a way that gave us a wondeful understanding and great respect for the Vietnamese people. We kyaked around and spent a night on Halong Bay, rode a push bike through the streets and villages of Hoi An, learnt to traverse the chaotic streets in the cities
