    Traveling through Vietnam was magical!!! The trip had everything one could have hoped for: exciting and busy city life, beautiful nature and beaches as well as lots of fun and challenging adventures (e.g. abseiling). The people in my group were amazing and so was Mel, our guide. I honestly think that she is the most fun and charming tour guide in the world. She knows the coolest people and made this trip unforgettable as we were all able to experience the real Vietnamese local life aside from the touristic pathways! Thanks for introducing me to this wonderful country! One of the most exciting ones I have ever been. I would always come back to do this journey all over again!

    Everything about the tour was fantastic. The variety of the things we did and places we went was great for everyone, and you could enjoy as much or as little of the night life as you wamted. I'd recommend it to anyone. Special thanks to Mel, she was a perfect tour guide in every sense, and went way above and beyond anything you might expect to try make the tour perfect for everyone. Any group would be lucky to have her!

    Such an amazing two weeks filled with many amazing memories! I really feel like I got a true taster of Vietnam from this trip and Mel was an excellent tour guide who made the whole experience fun-filled from beginning to end. Highlights included seeing the sun set in Ha Long Bay, participating in a cooking class in Hoi An where we made our own delicious Vietnamese food and experiencing the hectic and very entertaining city nightlife. Thank you Mel for being the perfect tour guide!!

    First time as a solo traveller and what an experience it was. The trips and activities were brilliant with there being something for everyone (food tours, water sports, canyoning, boat trips, pub crawls to name just a few). Vietnam is a wonderful place; the food, landscapes, nightlife etc are amazing and Mel did a fantastic job bringing the group close together and making everyone feel welcome and relaxed for a really sociable trip. I've come back home with so many hilarious stories and memories from each day - I would recommend this trip to anyone, particularly if travelling on their own for the first time like myself! Huge thanks to Mel for just being the best, wish I could give more than 5 stars!

    An absolutely fantastic trip - highly recommended. There was a really good balance of cultural stuff, alongside experiencing the nightlife and getting an adrenaline fix in the form of canyoning/jet skiing/banana boating! Every detail had been thought of to make our trip as fun and enjoyable as possible. Special thanks to Mel who was our tour guide. She made every effort to ensure everyone felt included and that everyone was having a good time. Her positive, good vibes were infectious and really ensured the whole group got on so well and just had the best time. Thank you so much Mel, you really made the holiday a memorable one!
