    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... Read more

  • Lynette12th April 2018
    I haven't travelled yet but from what I've seen so far I'm extremely happy I have chosen to travel with TourRadar. From my very first enquiry I was impressed. I had been researching a number of companies to find the right tour for us but all the others took their time in replying and I had to ask a number of times for information. The team at TourRadar were always prompt with answering me and very forthcoming with information. The website was easy to use and I was very impressed that it had so much information. What information I couldn't find on the website was quickly given to me once I asked. Would I refer TourRadar to my friends.....I already have! Now I can't wait to travel
