We had a 16night tour organised by Tonkin Travel, everything was top notch and I couldn’t recommend them highly enough. Shout out to Nga who was our bright light when covid 19 started to affect our holiday. Nga kept in touch daily with advice and kept our confidence up throughout our travels. Even contacting us in the UK to make sure we got home safely! ☺️

We travelled with Tonkin Travel in 2015 and had such a wonderful time that we decided to use them again this year. Phuong was so helpful with developing an exciting itinerary for our trip in 2020 (and in 2015!) and we were very much looking forward to travelling to Vietnam again. Unfortunately, I became unwell and we were not able to travel. As we cancelled very close to our departure date I was concerned about getting any refund. I shouldn't have been! Tonkin Travel worked hard to get us almost a full refund - there were some cancellation fees we had to pay but they were minimal. I can only say how wonderful Tonkin Travel is and we will definitely be using them again when next we travel to Vietnam.

We booked with Tonkin Travel after reading other reviews on Tripadvisor. We wanted to go to Vietnam reasonably independently, but with local back-up and guides. We corresponded initially with Huong and Quang, and agreed an itinerary and some suggestions for tours, but with many free days so we could explore on our own. The price was extremely reasonable and the final plan incorporated all our preferences. We booked our own flights to Vietnam but Tonkin took care of hotel bookings, internal flights, transfers, guides and some meals. We finally arrived in Hanoi at dawn on 17th February and we weren't disappointed! Tonkin met us at Hanoi Airport, took us to the hotel and helped us check in. We had a full day tour of Hanoi the following day, and our guide Trang was excellent. The following day we had a brilliant excusion to Ninh Binh (including a boat tour). Tonkin also organised our Ha Long Bay trip - not to be missed, but to be honest it is pretty touristy and for us wasn't a highlight of the trip. We went on to Hue (where we had another brilliant guide, Ngai) and Hoi An, which was wonderful for relaxation and where we had some clothes made to measure at Blue (Ms Tam Tam). We also did a fantastic Countryside Tour involving an outing on a fishing boat! All the drivers were great, and special thanks to our Hanoi driver who also took us to Halong Bay. We hope to return to Vietnam and will definitely book through Tonkin Travel when we do.

We are a family of 4 (with boys ages 4 and 8) and booked a week-long trip round Vietnam with Tonkin Travel having been recommended them by two sets of friends. We were not disappointed. Mr Quan worked with our itinerary requirements, suggested suitable adjustments and booked us into some amazing hotels. We requested English-speaking guides for each new destination along the journey and we were provided with some very knowledgeable and very friendly people. We requested transport pickups and drop offs, booked our tours through them and everything worked like a well-oiled machine. It was the best and easiest holiday we have had in a while. For the Halong Bay cruise, Quan recommended Bai Tu Long and Athena Royal Cruises. Bai Tu Long is a less touristy part of Halong Bay and although there were other boats nearby we were able to enjoy views of the gorgeous scenery without any other boats in the way. Food on board was excellent. Service was excellent. It truly was an amazing holiday and Tonkin Travel are great travel agents.

Recommended to us by our local guide, these guys were excellent. We were there the day they closed the bay in response to the virus hitting town. Great guide (who goes by the nickname of Jack Sparrow) took great care of us all. Nice boat, not busy and seems to attract a friendly crowd. The whole boat chatted with each other despite coming from all corners of the world (venezuela, New Zealand, Australia, Germany. Mexico, Ireland and the rest of the UK). Coach was a few minutes early (rare) and the trip was exactly as described online. Well priced compared to others. Food on board was good and they catered to the veggies who travelled. Only tip is that the 'tip box' is for the crew. Our group tipped big thinking it would be shared with the driver and the guide and it wasn't. So tip the person you valued directly...
