diane "Excellent trip. Excellent guide(s). As is normal with this tour, we had an overall guide, Zam, and individual local guides who took us round specific sites. We even had a guide who had been fighting for the south vietnamese to take us round the Cu Chi tunnels! What more could you ask for? This is a very well paced trip with plenty of down time as well as many opportunities to explore Vietnames..."

    4.5 - Excellent

    This trip was excellent. I would recommend it to any first-time or experienced traveler who is curious about Vietnam. I thought it was a great mix of fast-paced travel, relaxed free time, natural beauty, history, cuisine, culture, and active outdoor optional activities. My tour leader wasn't Vietnamese but had lived there for a long time, answered any questions we had, introduced us to locals and places to go, etc. We had local Vietnamese guides in the various cities. Hotels were all nice and in convenient locations. The overnight boat was not luxury but was great fun. And if anyone is apprehensive about the overnight train, the one we took was pretty clean, quiet, and comfortable (but there isn't a ton of storage with 4 people per cabin, so pack light for this trip). I loved the people in my tour group also... amazing how a small group of strangers who are all so different can become like family in only 10 days. Thanks for a great holiday, G Adventures!

    I have just been on a fantastic, educating, cultural and enjoyable experience from start to finish on a classic Vietnam tour. Our tour guide was Dat who is a very true part of the reason why we had such a great time. I would recommend this tour to everyone for fun, value, accomodation, activities, food choice and the people of Vietnam are so nice so big shout out to them too!

    Excellent trip. Excellent guide(s). As is normal with this tour, we had an overall guide, Zam, and individual local guides who took us round specific sites. We even had a guide who had been fighting for the south vietnamese to take us round the Cu Chi tunnels! What more could you ask for? This is a very well paced trip with plenty of down time as well as many opportunities to explore Vietnamese culture and history. The hotels were really very good quality, and some had their own pools. This trip has something for everyone as although not specifically part of the tour, you could get to the beach at Hoi An and we did a three hour impromptu beach stop on our way too. We also went on to do the Cambodia trip which was also good. I would not hesitate to recommend G adventures. Their ethical brief also allows tourists to contribute in a very positive way to the local economy as well as opening your eyes to local circumstances that you might be unaware of with another tour.

    2.0 - Rather poor

    G adventures gave us a guide who could not speak Vietnamese, who barely spoke English, and who had No Knowledge of Vietnamese history or culture. He also drank heavily. When we tried to get an explanation from G adventures they have consistently not communicated with us. We suspect that our guide was a ring-in, and have asked g adventures to confirm that the photo we've provided is, indeed, the authentic guide, but again No Answer. So we've paid a premium for being led by an ignorant non-local, with an apparent alcohol problem SOOOO diasppointed
    G Adventures commented on this review
    Dear Janine, Many thanks for your feedback. What you have described does not sound like the kind of experience our clients should come to expect from us or our CEO's. Of course we do take this very seriously indeed and I apologize for any issues you experienced with our CEO. I can see that a customer service case was opened for you on 30th December 2014 regarding the concerns expressed in your on-line evaluation and a communication was sent to you by my colleague on 12th January 2015. I can see no further communication regarding this matter after this date. I am sorry if you did not receive our response to your concerns. If you would like to contact us at customerservice@gadventures.com we would be happy send you our original response and review this case with you. Regards Tony G Adventures Customer Service
