    5.0 - Excellent

    We had the most incredible trip to Vietnam. Although we booked a fairly basic tour the itinerary was full enough to keep us entertained whilst allowing for some needed rest and recuperation. We expected very basic hotels and were pleasantly surprised throughout. The transport between each of the locations was well organised and comfortable. What really made this trip unforgettable was our tour guide. His knowledge and love of Vietnam were clear throughout. He shared interesting stories about his family life and provided insight into life in his home country. Even on days that were scheduled as 'free time' our guide provided tips on what to see and where to go for meals which was a huge help. Quang is a huge asset to Gecko Tours and should be recognised for his dedication and hard work.

    Absolutely best trip I could've asked for! This was my first time travelling by myself and it was incredible! I had an awesome bunch of people to travel with and a well-informed and enthusiastic tour guide, who didn't mind taking time out to show us the extra stuff along the way
