    My fiancé and I had a wonderful time traveling through Vietnam. The experience contiki gave to us was second to none. It made us feel safe, organized and allowed us to meet like minded travelers. Our tour guy Greg was also amazing! Gave us enough guidance to make Choices, but freedom to make it a truly unique adventure!

    Holy smokes... words really cannot do Greg's knowledge, helpfulness, openness, and sense of humor ample justice. My boyfriend and I couldn't imagine a better guide for a comprehensive, rounded, and FUN trip. Thank you Greg for showing us a great time in Vietnam!!

    Greg was amazing in organising the day trips and getting us all together in one piece. He spoke very well making it easy to understand the go and expectations. He knew where to point us to the right direction whether it was to find a chilled club/bar, somewhere more upbeat, restaurants that fitted our needs and dietaries. It was also great of him to organise a surprise birthday for one of our Contiki family members. This trip was definitely an experience I won’t forget, despite being sick, I still managed to enjoy travelling, meeting and getting to know people, taking in the views, landscapes and the culture of Vietnam. Contiki, you have done well.

    After 5 years without a holiday, this trip was just was I needed, and it was made perfect by my man Greg. Greg was incredibly helpful and his knowledge of the surrounding areas was so good you’d almost consider him a local. Would definitely recommend this trip to all of my friends and anyone else who’s interested in travelling to Asia!

    Our Vietnam trip with Greg as our guide was better than expected. Greg was friendly, professional, and helpful. Greg took much of the stress of traveling off our shoulders so that we could just show up each day and have fun.
