We went with the Trekking Sapa & Conquer The Roof of Indochina itinerary as it included all the train and accommodation transfers which made it fuss free. Right from the start, Joey was super speedy with his responses and answered all the queries we had. We had absolutely no issues with the train tickets and accommodation transfers. The sleeper train was an experience we wanted to try despite many mixed reviews we read about it in general. We were pleasantly surprised with the sleeper train in terms of cleanliness and some of us actually managed to get a decent sleep. The highlight of the trip was definitely the 2D1N Fansipan hike - we were lucky that the view was amazing on the morning we summited! The inn staff was also very attentive and helpful. Perhaps a small point to note - hiking sticks and headlamp was not provided and we forgot to bring as well. Would advise bringing your own. Overall would highly recommend going with them, they are everything but terrible!

Excellent! We arranged a private trip to north Vietnam with the Terrible Tour, covering Sapa and Ha Giang

From the planning of the itinerary, the many changes, we have been getting very prompt responses.

On the trip itself, the coordination, timing, meals and all have been carefully communicated and planned. Since the roads in the north seems unpredictable with the road works, Chi, our guide, always asked when things, (usu time) don't go as planned - for eg, should we stop for meals first or continue to the next destination

Special mention also for his help us find a shop to buy an ankle guard, as my hubby arrived with an injured ankle. We had to check several shops before finding one. Thank you for your patience Chi, though we were running out of time, heading for the train to Sapa.

On our climb up Fansipan, we were really thankful that he and the local guide Sai (sorry this may not be the correct spelling) discussed and suggested that we have another porter. It's a 2D1N hike, they carried all the food supply plus our bags, easing our load so we can just focus on the hike. Appreciate that thoughtfulness! The hotpot up the mountain is something that we will remember forever!

Driver is skilful, maneuvring through the windy mountain roads over extended hours. Thank you!

On the whole, we enjoyed our trip! Appreciate all the seamless coordination guys!

We have booked a 8 day tour from USA to visit Hanoi, Ninh Binh, Sapa and Cao Bang. The company offered the best plan to make each of our day memorable. The plan was carefully executed by joey with his prompt on-ground to make out trip seamless. All the detailed trip plan was ran smoothly with great coordination to avoid any mishaps. On-time cab delivery anh great accommodations were offered to make the trip enjoyable. We have enjoyed every day and each destination thanks to the beautiful country, peaceful culture and friendly people. We highly recommend Chi as your tour guide in Vietnam for their personalized assistance and value-driven approach.

I would highly recommend Joey to assist with your Vietnam visa application process. He is quick to respond to questions and he explains everything very clearly. They assisted me to apply for a visa approval letter and I received my letter quicker than the expected turnaround time. I was very impressed with the level of service I received and would definitely recommend using their services. They are the best!

We had a great experience with this travel agent when we used their service to obtain an invitation letter for a Chinese passport holder. The agent was always quick to respond, and their service was both fast and reliable.
We also booked a Halong Bay tour with them, which turned out to be fantastic! We would definitely recommend this travel agent to anyone, not only for their exceptional service, but also for their ability to provide an excellent travel experience.
If you're planning a trip to Vietnam, be sure to reach out to this friendly and reliable travel agent!

I met Joey on one of the travel groups in facebook. He is very kind and professional organising everything, always ready to answer any question on whatsapp.
He assisted us with the recommendation letter to get VOA and we also got transfers that he arranged for us. The most amazing experience was the food walking tour in Hanoi with Benjamin. He took us to every single spot to eat the most delicious food and also share his knowledge not only about food but history. It was like going out with a friend. We really enjoyed the experience.
We ended up the evening having a drink at the train street and it was fantastic.
Joey runs his travel agency very professionally, he is trustable and We cannot wait to go back to Vietnam and do some hikes with him.
Next time I promise to take the present and not forgetting it at home dear Joey! All the best and keep going! Sorry I took forever to write my review!

We did the 3 days 2 night2 Ba Be trip in September and we highly recommend it. It's an amazing place & everything was perfect. Delicious food, comfortable transport, lovely accommodation & incredibly friendly guide Chi. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience!

We had an awesome, memorable trip to Ninh Binh. Chi was an excellent guide who made sure we had the best time, doing exactly what we would like to do and did not hesitate to take us to an extra stop after the tour ended when we enquired. It was a longer day for him and the driver due to the extra stop but they didn't mind at all. We had so much fun, Chi shared lots of information and a very happy guide. The van was super comfortable and lunch yummy. Joey was super quick in his communication and helpful and made this whole booking process seamless. It was beyond our expectations and we highly recommend these guys!

Joey is very expert in advising travelers while they are planning for the trip.
Even when we decided to do DIY trip, Joey helped our planning to be less stressful by booking the buses for us. We only need to appear at the pick up location at the right time. He's generous with his knowledge and time.

We did a 3 nights/4 days private tour which explored northern vietnam starting and ending at our hotel in Hanoi. We had the most fantastic time and can’t recommend The Terrible Tour Guide enough. Our “terrible” guide Chi was so friendly and made us feel welcome and safe at every place we visited, we also had the same driver for the whole tour who was brilliant and extremely accommodating. A particular highlight was a whole day on a private boat on Lan Ha Bay where we got to kayak and swim in the Bay surrounded by the most beautiful scenery we have ever seen. The tour has really made our time in Vietnam and we are so glad we did it. Thank you!
