“Go and visit Vietnam and Cambodia and do it with Wide Eyed Tours!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014

From the first response to my email query to the departure in Phnom Penh this was an amazing trip with outstanding service from the Wide EyedTours Team. Miss Chi was super professional and helped to make suggestions about places to visit before we left and then was able to organise an outstanding tour. I travelled with my 14 year old son and there were activites for both of us as well as some wonderful sights and scenery. We spent 3 weeks in Hanoi, Ha Long Bay, Hue, Hoi An, Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam and Siem Reap and Phnom Penh in Cambodia. Every transfer and tour was smooth and we were so impressed with the organisation. It was a great pleasure to meet Miss Chi in Hanoi. She also contacted us at each new destination to make sure that the accommodation and tour was going well and was genuinely concerned about our enjoyment. All of our guides were outstanding, with great English skills as well as understanding and knowledge of the area. The motorbike tour of Hue was an absolute highlight as was the cruise on Ha Long Bay. Actually, the Angkor temples at Siem Reap were pretty special too! In fact, everywhere we went was fantastic.
We met wonderful, friendly people and we can't wait to take other members of our family back to these countries to show them the beautiful sights.
Thanks to the team at Wide Eyed Tours, they were simply outstanding

“Hanoi Vietnam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2014

HELP IN HA NOI
I was lucky to be introduced to Wide Eyed Tours based in Hanoi by an Australian friend. I sent an email for help with accommodation and airport/ hotel transfers. Chi a young lady with the tour company responded. All was attended to quickly and the prices were excellent.
You know what it's like when you arrive at a destination for the first time, will I see or find my driver? There it was my name clearly typed on a board and then to top it off the hotel was excellent.
It got better chi even met me in the city and helped me barter for some lacquer paintings I had been looking to purchase for days. When I first asked the price for one it was $US80.00 and I ended up getting 4 paintings for $180.00.
So get in touch with Chi at Wide Eyed Tours she is a champion .
Cheers Julian

“5 day push bike tour from Hanoi to Ninh Binh return”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014

Had initial reservations when we found out we were the only two on the bike ride. However our guide and driver were enthusiastic and organised. We thoroughly enjoyed their company and the hotels, meals and activities they organised. Our guide Pham Manh Hung, spoke English very well and was able to explain lots about Vietnamese culture. He arranged for us to visit a house where a family was singing to its ancestors, something we'll never forget. Have many great memories from our ride which was conducted in a professional, friendly manner. Wouldn't hesitate to travel with Wide Eyed Tours again and can't wait until we do. Lee and Al

“Brilliant holiday and a cultural exploration of Vietnam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014

What a brilliant trip to Vietnam which was made completely hassle free by Wide Eyed Tours. We travelled as a family - my husband and I, and three children aged 10 to 14, so we wanted the trip to appeal to everyone and it certainly did. Our guides in Hanoi and Ho Chi Min were exceptional and very knowledgable and took great care of us. All accommodation was well priced and extremely suitable for our family. All transfers were included which made travelling easy and relaxing and Wide Eyed Tours were in regular contact throughout our trip to ensure the trip went smoothly. Vietnam is a beautiful and diverse country and we got to see plenty of it. I highly recommend it as a family holiday destination and booking through Wide Eyed Tours ensures a relaxed and well organised trip.

“Fantastic hassle free holiday in Vietnam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2014

Wonderful tour put together by Chi from Wide eyed tours. Chi put together a wonderful holiday that took in the highlights of Vietnam. Everything was executed perfectly from pick up tours and accomodation at a very reasonable price. Chi keep in contact through tout the trip to make sure everything was going well. I could not recommend wide eyed more highly.
