Hi! Nhung, 

We are leaving Vietnam now. I just want to write a quick email to report on our experience, as I forgot to fill out the survey that our guide Tho gave us. Sorry!!

We had a wonderful time in Vietnam and were very happy with the arrangements your company has made for us!  The hotels are wonderful and the food is great.

We particularly enjoyed the overnight cruise at Ha Long bay. The views are spectacular and our room was beyond our expectation.

The guides and the drivers are all very nice. We particularly would like to point out how wonderful our guide in Hue and Hoi An is. We really loved having Tho as our guide.  He is enthusiastic, warm and kind to other people as well. He has a great personality and we really enjoyed having his company. We also want to give thanks to his driver Son. He went out of his way to help us find a good Bahn Mi when we asked for one. He dresses professionally and we certainly enjoyed the nice new clean car.

Overall, we had a great experience. Oh, I almost forgot— we LOVED the villa room in Hoi An. It was simply wonderful and luxurious. The staff there is wonderful too.

Thank you and we would highly recommend your company to others. Hope we can visit Vietnam again in the future.

Hallo Danh,

wie versprochen möchte ich mich endlich mal bei dir melden. Mein Urlaub ist nun schon ein paar Tage vorbei und ich muss wieder fleißig sein. Ich kann dir aber sagen, dass ich eine tolle Zeit in Vietnam hatte, mit den besten Reiseleitern die man sich nur wünschen kann. Vietnam ist ein wunderschönes Land mit tollen Menschen. Ich danke, dass ich dich kennenlernen durfte.

So, meine Erreichbarkeit hast du jetzt, wir bleiben in Kontakt. 

Und grüße mir meine Reiseleiterin aus dem Mekong-Delta. 

In tiefer Freundschaft

Good afternoon to you all at Vidotour.  We hope this finds you all well. 

We have now been home from our wonderful holiday for two weeks and we have come back down to earth with a huge thump! 

We had the most amazing time in Vietnam and we want to thank you all so very much for everything you all put into place for us which made our holiday so fabulous. From the start of our holiday we received the most friendly welcome and we were treated like royalty.  Everything ran so smoothly from being picked up at the airport, for all of our tours and all of our internal flights.  It really was wonderful as we were always confident that we had nothing to worry about as someone would always be waiting for us to take us on our next exciting journey.  

We have stayed in the most beautiful hotels, so nice in fact that it was often difficult to leave them!  It was wonderful to return to such luxury each day. 

Our guides were fantastic. Thien in Hanoi, who met us at the airport and took us on our city tour of Hanoi which was a great day.  We particularly enjoyed seeing local life in Hanoi which gave us real insight into your culture. 

Hoan in Hoi An, who met us at the airport and took us around beautiful Hoi An.  we thoroughly enjoyed the lantern making factory - the lanterns we made are hanging in our garden providing a daily memory of this wonderful tour.  We also enjoyed the walking tour around Hoi An and the boat trip on the river.  

Ms Tiene in Ho Chi Minh who met us at the airport and took us to the Cu Chi Tunnels the war museum as well as the walking tour around Ho Chi Minh .  Ms Tiene's humour and wonderful smile will be remembered by us all. 

Thy, who along with very skilled drivers took us on the Vespa ride around Ho Chi Minh.  We had a great evening after becoming less worried about the traffic! Thy was a great guide, taking us for traditional street food, markets and music venues. 

Our guides were all so knowledgeable and went our of their way to make sure we had the most amazing tours, always happy to answer our questions and wait patiently whilst we took endless photographs!  Please pass our thanks to them all. 

Our drivers were all very friendly and we were impressed with their driving skills on the busy roads of Vietnam!  

Words really cannot explain how truly blessed we all feel to have experienced everything we did. Vietnam truly is a wonderful country and we have made some wonderful memories which we will never forget. 

Thank you so much to all of you once again for making our holiday a holiday of a lifetime. 

With very kind regards

Sehr geehter Herr Danh,

mittlerweile hat uns der Alltag seit mehr als drei Wochen wieder, nachdem wir an der Vietnam-Rundreise teilgenommen haben.

Der Badeurlaub war eine verdiente Erholung nach den Strapazen der Rundreise.

Bitte nicht falsch verstehen: Die Rundreise war interessant und hat Spaß gemacht.

Aber es war auch anstrengend. Insbesondere die langen Busfahrten. Und die "Spaziergänge" durch die Großstädte... Es ist für uns unvorstellbar, wie mann inmitten der Mopeds leben kann.

Es ist mir ein Bedürfnis, Sie wissen zu lassen, dass ich von der Reiseleitung durch Sie sehr beeindruckt war.

Herrn Mau habe ich nicht besondes "genossen". Er hat einige Fakten abgearbeitet. Ist natürlich ausreichend. Aber auch nicht mehr.

Mit Herrn Hung war es schon sehr viel interessanter. Er wirkte auf mich bodenständig und  "liebevoll". Er ist auf Fragen eingegangen und hat sich der Gruppe angemessen angenommen.

Als im Süden dann Sie uns in Empfang nahmen wusste ich, was einen richtig guten Reiseleiter ausmacht....

Ob es tatsächlich so war oder ob Sie auch ein guter Schauspieler sind, vermag ich nach den paar Tagen nicht zu beurteilen.

Aber es wirkte so, als würden Sie Ihren "Job" sehr mögen und die Zeit mit Ihren "Gästen" auch ein stückweit genießen.

Ich war im Übrigen beeindruckt von Ihrem Wissensschatz. Nicht nur Ihr Land betreffend sondern auch das unsere. Ihre Sprachkenntnisse: Chapeau!

Ihr Charme und Witz: Genial!

Wenn ich heute Freunden/Kollegen von dem Urlaub erzähle, fallen mir nicht zuletzt Ihre Witze ein... Und die Ausführungen zu unserer Sprache ;-))

Sie hatten mich im Bus nach meinem Lebensmotto gefragt und ich habe mit den Schultern gezuckt.

Nicht etwa, weil mir dazu nichts einfiel. Es gibt einiges von mir dazu zu sagen.

Aber nicht athoc in einem Satz.

Und ich sage solche Sachen nicht gern, da ich das, was ich in der Theorie favorisiere nicht (kaum) lebe.

Zum Beispiel ist ein Motto: Hauptsache gesund!

Meine beiden erwachsenen (+-20 J.) Kinder haben noch nicht die richtige/entgültige Berufswahl getroffen und sind insoweit auf der Suche.

Natürlich würde es mich freuen, wenn es ihnen leichter fiele.

Aber ich mache mir darüber keine Sorgen und denke, die Hauptsache ist doch, dass sie gesund sind. Alles andere findet sich.

Ich arbeite in der Personalabteilung eines Gefängnisses. Dort sind viele männliche Bedienstete, die sich häufig über "nichts" bei mir ausweinen. Denen sag ich auch "Du hast es gut. Du bist gesund. Das ist doch alles, was zählt."

Die meisten kommen dann auch (kurzfristig) aus ihrem Jammertal heraus.

Mein Problem ist, dass auch ich in Jammertäler falle und WEISS, dass ich "keinen Grund" habe, aber ich SPÜRE es dann nicht ...

Aber ich arbeite daran!

So, mein Lieber (ich darf Sie mal kurz so nennen?): Ich habe Sie genug zugetextet.

Ich wünsche Ihnen allles alles Gute.

Verlieren Sie nicht Ihren Lebensmut und Ihre Fröhlichkeit/Lebendigkeit.

Ich jedenfalls halte Sie in guter Erinnerung und grüße ganz herzlich aus dem dauerfrostkalten (heute nur noch - 6 Grad Celsius) Neumünster

Hallo Jan,

viele herzliche Grüße von der „Dreier-VIP-Gruppe“ aus Deutschland.

Unsere „Große Vietnam-Rundreise“ vom 13.-22./24. Dezember 2017 war einfach wunderbar, mit vielen schönen und unvergesslichen Eindrücken, dank auch der tollen Guides, die uns begleitet haben.

Gerne erinnern wir uns an die Tage mit Ihnen in Saigon und während der Ausflüge, an Ihren Humor, Ihre Hilfsbereitschaft und Sachkenntnis. Die Zeit verging wie im Flug. Glücklicherweise haben wir viele Fotos von der Reise, die uns hier in Deutschland wieder Landschaften, Städte, Menschen, Formen und Farben Vietnams vor Augen führen.

Herzliche Grüße auch an

  1. - Tom, der uns mit seiner fröhlichen und sympathischen Art in Hanoi empfing und uns in die jüngere Geschichte Vietnams und die Lebensweise der Menschen einführte.
  2. - Du (leider kenne ich die vietnamesische Schreibweise seines Namens nicht). Er war unser Guide von Da Nang über Hoi An bis Hue und hat uns mit seinem breitgefächerten Wissen die frühe Geschichte Vietnams näher gebracht.

Rundum, wir waren begeistert und sind allen sehr dankbar.

Da Sie inzwischen sicherlich mehrere neue Gruppen betreut haben, füge ich zur Erinnerung einige Fotos bei, auf denen auch Tom (Halong-Bucht) und Due (Pavillon in der Anlage des Minh-Mang-Grabes) zu sehen sind.

Mit den besten Wünschen für die Zukunft, auch von Andrea und Jürgen

Dear Ngoc

I am just writing to express our appreciation of your company on our recent trip to Vietnam and Cambodia. We came to you with a recommendation from our son who travelled with you last year and we found that his enthusiasm was well founded. There were three things that you had got absolutely right and made our trip so enjoyable.

  1. - Reliability.

The guides were clear about the time of our next pick up and they always turned up a few minutes early and were never late. This is particularly important if we had to go to the airport to catch a flight and takes all the stress out of travel.

  1. - Language and information.

All the guides in both countries spoke excellent English and gave us the information that we needed without giving too much. They gave us plenty of time to look around and we never felt pressurised to move on. All of them were very personable and willing to answer any question.

  1. - Planning of trip.

We appreciated the effort you made to arrange our trip to cover the places that we wanted to see. The trip was well organised so that we felt we had time to enjoy the different places rather than rushing from one to another. All the hotels were excellent being well appointed in a good place within the town. All of them provided good service - particularly La Siesta in Hanoi.

I need to emphasise that we were absolutely delighted with your company and would recommend you to friends without reservation.

Best wishes

David

Dear Vidotour, 

We have just returned from our holiday in Vietnam and wanted to say a huge thank you for putting together such a fantastic itinerary for us. We loved it! We were thrilled with Vietnam as a holiday destination - it was so interesting from a cultural and historic perspective, the people were friendly and the food was delicious. 

We felt very safe throughout the trip, and enjoyed the services Vidotour, who were excellent. All the guides were knowledgeable, informative and spoke good English,  the transport vehicles were good quality and clean, and the drivers were reliable and safe.

Dear Vidotour,

I have just spent two amazing weeks, along with my husband, in Vietnam where we were looked after extremely ably and well by your company. I could not fault either driver who were courteous and helpful throughout and the driving of both was exceptional. The condition of the vehicles throughout was excellent. We were extremely happy with the standard of the hotels. The meals we had and the restaurant recommendations from your guides were all very good. We loved the itinerary and enjoyed every moment of the trip. Our guide in the north was professional an attentive throughout, as well as friendly and informative. Our guide in Hue and My Son was friendly, enthusiastic, informative and was particularly helpful and professional when I had to have my eye checked at the hospital - thankfully a false alarm. We were also completely happy with the two transfers to the airport. Thanks for helping to give us a memorable holiday. 

-Rhian & David M.

Dear Vidotour, 

We did a tour of Vietnam with your company earlier this month and I've got to tell you how great it was. Your guides and drivers were brilliant. I'd just like to say the guide in Da Nang and Hue and the driver were exceptional and two lovely guys. The driver even bought us a gift which we thought was a lovely gesture. All of them are a credit to your company and due to them I'm sure you'll be seeing us again in the not too distant future. 

Thanks again. 

-Paul & Judith J.
