We first used Signatures of Asia/Cruises of Indochina in 2010 and due to their exceptional service, did so again in 2012. They are presently busy arranging our next trip to Vietnam in February 2014. Below is an extract from an Email I sent to Kat following our 2010 trip.
It was great to meet you in Hanoi and so be able to put a face to the writer of so many emails. All the arrangements worked as promised and to time. Your choice of safe drivers was, without exception, excellent and much appreciated. With hindsight we also appreciated your advice not to return to Saigon by rice barge.
The two cruises you did arrange for us were exceptional. Halong Bay for 3 days/2 nights on board the luxury junk Valentine proved to be an unforgettable experience. The crew, other 6 guests, food and accommodation were truly 5 star as was the unique scenery. Anyone visiting Hanoi should put this trip at the top of their agenda. Out of Saigon the trip on the Song Xanh sampan from Cai Be to Sa Dec and Can Tho gave us a chance to see at close quarters the real river life along the banks of the Mekong and again we enjoyed having an excellent crew and food throughout. As you know the Mekong was in flood at the time which made the trip all the more exciting.
We all had a great time in Vietnam and thank you for your part for your part in it. Should we be able to return again we will have no hesitation in contacting you.
With very best wishes from us all, Peter
