I booked my tour and from the moment of first contact Trung was amazing. He put together a bespoke tour for us that included everything we wanted to see (Hanoi, Halong Bay and Hoi An). The hotels were great, perfectly located and all the staff were incredibly helpful and went out of their way to make our stay memorable. The day tours and experiences were exactly what we were looking for and far exceeded our expectations. It truly was an amazing tour we will never forget.

From day one the tour planning with Ashley from Vietnam tours was perfect and we had no trouble with pic-ups, tour guides and accommodation. The tour was informative and most enjoyable. We could not have asked for a better and more professional tour adviser than Ashley for the company. We had the best in 15 days what Cambodia and Vietnam could offer!!

A Response from Seni World 26/04/2019

Tipping is not customary in Vietnam but it's highly appreciated. Most the high-end services include a service fee but if you receive a service that exceeded your expectation, then a tip is highly recommended. Normally, you should tip at least 1-3 USD/pax/day for your guide and driver.

A Response from Seni World 18/07/2019

Vietnam's weather is tropical climate with high humidity creating a favorable condition for many insects especially mosquitoes. Whenever you head outside especially in mountainous areas, be sure to apply repellent to all areas of exposed skin. 

A Response from Seni World 15/04/2019

Depending on individual hotels, most of the hotels in Vietnam are equipped with all necessary amenities such as hair dryers, private bathroom, safety box, shampoo, body lotion and more. If you're not sure about the quality of these kinds of stuff, you can bring your own or buy outside.

A Response from Seni World 07/12/2018

You can easily find an ATM at any major cities across the country. Though, it's hard to find one in local areas, so make sure you prepare enough money for a journey out of the city.  Do not keep too much money along you to avoid the risk of theft.
