“Feedback on AWESOME TRAVEL AGENCY”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

We used AWESOME TRAVEL (Mr Anh is the director) recently. It was not a good experience - commitments were not kept, and phone calls back to Mr Anh kept getting dropped more often than normal.

We were a family of 4 persons travelling for 10 days in Vietnam and all arrangements were made by Mr Anh. However, his actions did not match with his commitments before we signed up for his agency. He was more expensive (by around 10%) than many others but we went with him as he was very responsive before the deal was closed.

His responsiveness disappeared the moment we paid the 30% advance !

Our food requirements and preferred quality of restaurants were not delivered in all locations (we travelled to Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hue, My Son valley, Hoi An, Ho Chi Minh City, Mekong Delta, Cu Chi Tunnels, Cao Dai Temple, etc.,

Overall, we would not recommend AWESOME TRAVEL.

Cheers

“Most memorable Vietnam experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

We did this on our first day in Hanoi, and we are so glad we did because it really set us up for the rest of our trip. We have the most lovely girl (sorry I cant remember her name) who met us at our hotel. She firstly asked us what we liked to eat and asked if there was anything in particular we would like to try, the only thing that came to mind was Bun Cha (which you MUST eat - it is absolutely amazing!). So off we went. Firstly we had a delicious dumpling/dim sim things which I think had chicken,pork and prawn, at the same place we have some Vietnamese sausage (lovely!). We then tried Sugar cane juice, bun cha, morning glory, egg coffee, rice paper rolls, beer (haha!) and lots more. A big part of the tour was just getting to know our guide, she was such a lovely girl, and not only did she teach us about the food, but also the local way of life. She took us through some dark lane ways to give us a sense of what day to day life is like and to see how they live.
By the end of the day we were absolutely stuffed. At the end of the tour we were taken back to the office to meet Mr Ahn. We had a great time hanging out in the office with him drinking snake wine.

The tour is definitely a "must do" and really gave us the confidence to try all sorts of street food throughout Vietnam. Thank-you Vietnam Awesome Travel!

“Food walking tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

We have just returned from a walking food tour with Chinh and can not speak highly enough of her vibrancy, knowledge and enthusiasm. What a gem of a tour guide! We were a group of 4 and went to a variety of places where we tried one dish at each. We were all happy to try what was offered and the flavours didn't disappoint. The opportunity to go with someone into places that we would possibly look at and then pass by, because we were not confident enough to go in was worth every cent. We will certainly enjoy the rest of our stay here with a more adventurous spirit. Thanks Chinh!

“Exceptional Food tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

I can't speak highly enough of the food tour that I went on. I was in a group of 4 and the guide was brilliant, extremely knowledgeable, friendly and informative, the best tour guide I have ever had- Chinh. Tried a wide variety of food. Great value for money.

“Brilliant tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

The street food tour we went on was quite magnificent.The guide River was really caring about what he was doing and made our tour very special.We made it clear from the off that we would try anything and he very quickly got into his stride and took us to a host of different places to taste and eat a great selection of what Hanoi had to offer.It was one of the highlights of our two week holiday to Vietnam.
