My week in the northern part of Vietnam was perfect, easy and full of amazing experiences because of Fiona and her company. I was escorted by very knowledgeable and friendly guides, who spoke excellent English, to some of the best sites to visit. From the pick-up at the airport to the drop off eight days later I had a great... More

I planned a 2 week custom tour of Vietnam by myself and knew that I needed guides and transportation for certain portions. I also had many specific questions about locations, how best to organize the trip from a timing standpoint, etc. Upon sending emails to a number of tour companies, the thoughtful and well researched answers I received from Smiley...

We perused all the reviews of this company and others before booking with CVT. Their pricing was competitive but that was a minor consideration as we wanted a reliable , courteous,knowledgable and responsive agent to deal with before and during our trip. We are experienced travelers and without doubt Smiley and his team not only met these criteria but went... More

We were in Vietnam for 2 weeks from south to north. We started working with Smiley from the start, knowing there was no way I could have planned myself.

On my third trip to Vietnam Custom Vietnam Travel made all our arrangements again. It didn't matter to Smiley & Phuong that we didn't need much service on this trip, their attention to all our details was exceptional, as always. I wouldn't use any other agency for planning a trip to Vietnam. I'll be back soon!
