          First time at Sapa
          Cool weather, but too foggy. My first time to visit, I was amazed by the cable car and mountains; and delighted by the atmosphere at the city center. I want to visit again for different activities such as trekking or biking in a different month. I came from Ha Gian, so it was a long ride to Sapa.

          I stayed the at the Le Meridien Ho Chi Minh Vietnam. The service at the executive lounge was impeccable . One of the staff members, Umie was excellent. she always went extra miles to help whatever I need. It was a very pleasant stay. I do recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to visit Ho Chi MInh.

          Excellent service quality.
          It was excellent. Very well arranged. The views and the boat cruise were brilliant experiences! Local food was a bonus. Guide SLIM was exceptionally good, explained things very well, and extremely helpful.

          Uninformative and disrespectful
          Overall uninformative, and not entertaining. Found the experience to be quite disrespectful of the war. We were saddled with a guide that spoke English, with a very hard to understand, accent, and not very well at times. The guide himself was very uninformed and gave very little relevant information regarding the war and try to make up for it with bad humor (which is absolutely not the place). At the middle of all this is a shooting range, where you can pay to shoot targets, which is incredibly inappropriate and distasteful.

          Awesome tour!
          Ngọc Nguyễn, our tour guide did an excellent job for this tour. We enjoyed his enthusiasm and friendliness for the entire tour. His knowledge about and history of the country is awesome! His funny jokes made the trip more joyful. I highly recommended this day tour to everyone. The price is very reasonable and they even picked up and dropped off at the hotel. I wouldn’t mine taking another tour with Ngoc. We experienced eating crockeries, real honey, and drank some rice wine. The food is also awesome!

          I enjoy tropical forests and red maple leaves in Nhiu Co San, Cu Nhu San, Lao Cai, Vietnam The moss on trees and falling red maple leaves on the trekking trail, its beauty melts every single heart in Nhiu Co San, Cu Nhu San in early winter time. There is a growth layer of shrubs and grass, alternating with cliffs at the foot of the mountain This trekking trail is difficult to make in a long road, there are many vertical and slippery rocky slopes, sometimes you have to cross the forest, and sometimes you need to crawl up but what you gain is not only cloud hunting time, but also diverse and colorful things on the way up.

          Waste of time for small children
          After paying our entry fee for 7 adults and 3 children we are advised of all the areas closed. This included almost everything for preschoolers!!!

          Nice trip out of the busy city
          This activity offers a nice comfy excursion out of the busy city of Dalat to the countryside. The coffee shop which is part of this tour is quite nice to sit and drink a cup of coffee as it has some nice exposed view of the coffee farm. The falls are very nice. There are some walks down and up the elephant falls but it is worth it as you can get quite close to the waterfall and behind, underneath the fall! I also have to recommend it for the super nice guide, Tin Tin, humorous and knowledgable. I recommend it!

          city half-day tour
          For those who only have a few days to spend in Ho Chi Minh, a tour of the city is highly recommended. It offers the visitors the opportunity to get a feel of the city's architecture and life. We started off with the Reunification Palace, formerly known as the Presidential Palace. This important city landmark assured its place in history on April 30, 1975 when the first North Vietnamese tanks rumbled past, signaling the fall of Saigon and ultimately the end of the Vietnam War. Currently the building is set as a museum with various meeting areas (still used for diplomatic and government meetings), war rooms and a basement communication center. Our next stop was the Notre Dame Cathedral which dates back to the 19th century. It is one of the most popular places and a backdrop for wedding photographs. Across the street from the Cathedral is the city's striking French colonial era post office, whilst Hotel de Ville de Saigon, officially Ho Chi Minh City Hall is another of the city's most prominent buildings. Another example of French colonial architecture is the Saigon Opera House (built in 1898) which stands right at the heart of the city. Our last stop was at the Jade Emperor Pagoda, is a Taoist temple build by the Chinese community in 1909. The temple exhibits various phantasmagorical divinities and grotesque heroes, having the Jade Emperor or the king of Heaven at its center.

          Odynovo Half Day tour of the War Museum and Ben Trahn market was exceptional!
          Our tour of Saigon started as we disembarked from our cruise ship, the Azamara Quest on Tuesday, October 22. We didn't have to walk more than 50 feet before our driver, Henry Hoang, held up the sign with our names on it. We quickly noticed that Henry spoke English very well, and that he had a big welcoming smile on his face. As we started driving through Saigon, Henry's knowledge of Vietnam's history was apparent, and our questions about his country were answered clearly, and completely. We were mainly interested in the War Museum, because of our interest in the war that was such a part of our lives growing up in the 60's. But, per Henry's suggestion, we visited the Ben Tranh market first, saving the visit to the museum for a little later. This was a good suggestion, because after the moving, and emotional museum visit, we probably wouldn't have felt much like shopping had we done the museum first. It was a wonderful day, with an exceptional guide. Odynovo had again provided us with and interesting and educational tour.

          Essential Saigon, and War details
          This This is an ideal tour to fully experience Vietnam, plus enjoy lunch by the pool. Our guide aka Joseph ? (Tour date:17.9.19) organised our group well. We visited Notre dame Cathedral but could not go in as its being restored. However the Post Office across the road was another historic building. The highlights of the tour were the Palace, War remnants Museum and the tunnels at Cu Chi.

          Ho Chi Minh City Tour
          Our DAY 1 in Ho Chi Minh City tour with Johnny was excellent. His well spoken English was very informative, his knowledge of the history, and religious values were great. The visits, to China Town markets, Independence Palace, War Museum, Notre Dam Cathedral and other make this a must do.
