    I have travelled with Stray Asia multiple times. The guides, the people I met and the places I didn't even realised existed were all standouts for me. Some of the drive days are a little long, but the destinations make it worth while and the guides make the time enjoyable.

    Stray is an excellent company and I would recommend the tours to everybody. Our guide Phi was the best and made our Vietnam tour simply perfect.

    Did the Dong pass and had a great time exploring Vietnam. Our guide Long was amazing, super nice and went above and beyond to make sure we were safe and taken care of. He had great recommendations and helped me book some activities not provided by stray. Thanks Long!

    A good bustrip with a very sweet guide to help us. Sometimes very long bus hours.
    Stray Asia commented on this review
    Thank you for your review! Yes the bus trips can get tiring with Vietnam being such a long country. We hope you got the chance to hop off and relax at some of our great Vietnam destinations like Bai Xep or Hoi An!

    Our guide Was great helped us every Day to get a 5 People room. The booked activities were also great. We got help to book a Tour to Sapa, but Unfortunatel I become, and then our guide helped us to cancel our Tour. The People on the bus were Nice as well. We're going to miss our Guide Long the Dragon and his magical laugh.

    I booked the stray tour because I'm a first time traveller and the thought of travelling in reliable transport with a tour guide was extremely comforting. A special mention to Little Tiger and her trainee tour guides Phi and Pinky- I hopped on with them at Hoi An and they've made the end of my journey through Vietnam unforgettable. They recommended local food to try and local drinks (egg coffee!!) and it was always yummy. They answered all the questions- about activites to do, places to see and general questions about vietnamese culture- to utmost satisfaction. I was even added to a Facebook group to view the photos they'd taken of us along the way. I really felt like part of a group. The accommodation was always great. There were incredible views in Nimh Binh, the showers in Bai Xep were beautiful, and for those days when I just wanted to chill out and enjoy the sun, there were pools in Hoi An and Phong Nha. The rooms were always very clean, and reception were always friendly and willing to point us in the right direction. Finally, travelling on the bus from the South to the North of Vietnam was very comfortable, air conned and spacious. Our driver was excellent too. All in all, a big thank you to Stray for making my month in Vietnam the best experience.

    Thank you so much for your review Kirstie! We love the photos and we're glad you had a great time. We'll pass on your compliments to Little Tiger, Pinky and Fee - they'll love to hear your kind feedback.

    The Dong Pass is a great way to see Vietnam, especially the beautiful scenery. Our tour guide Long was wonderful and it was nice to have someone there to answer questions! The bus was very nice. The brochure suggested that some of the accommodation was included in the price and booked in advance. In one place the usual hotel was full so we went to an unfinished hotel above a very noisy bar!
