Jul 2019 • Couples
What a wonderful day we had today. Saw Vietnam as we truly wanted to. Felt the reality of life in the Delta. Cycled, walked, on boats of various kinds ..... amazing lunch and the best guide we have ever had, anywhere. Dear JUN you made our day. We felt tired but exhilarated. Thank you for your caring and informative guiding. We also loved your humor.
