Leilani Ariona – USA – April 2016 


Dear Thi,

I must thank you for the excellent tours we took with Smile Tours during our recent visit to Vietnam.

Our tours were Highlights of Saigon from the cruise ship at Phu My Port on 30/4/2016 and Hoian Tour from the cruise ship at Chan May port on 2/5/2016.

I have written a review gladly for Saigon tour, but can't find where to write a review for Hoian.

Before the tours I questioned you a lot as it's always hard to know what to do in a foreign country, and we were hesitant to book, but we are so glad we did. The tours and itinerary were fantastic, and you should be very proud of your guides. They were delightful and really made our day. Mr. Tam was our guide for Saigon, and I wish I could remember the name of the Hoian guide as she was so good and should be told.

A special thank you for adding the photo stop at Reunification Hall.

Thank you very much,

with best regards,

from Yvonne and John Hewitt - Australian - April 2016


Dear Thi,

I would like to tell you again that we had a wonderful time today at the tour you organised for us. The guide and the driver were nice and professonal.

The trishaw was an exceptional experience.  We also enjoyed very much the food and the atmosphere at the Ngon restaurant. We didn't know what to eat and a nice waiter order many things for us to taste.

We were a little ahead of schedule because of the great heat we shortened ou visit to the market in Chinatown and we renounce to go to the Ben Thanh market (no interest and to much heat for us).

Overall we had a fantastic day. The pace was perfect for us and we appreciated to have been back to the ship by mid afternoon.

We definitely would recommend your company for the perfect organisation you provide.

Many thanks.

Best regards.
