“Adventure trip”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

My family had an adventure trip to view the magnificent moutains and to experience the beautiful ethnic minorities in north Vietnam. Kien helped arrange and look after the trip carefully thus we enjoyed an incredible adventure. Our guide was wonderful too, he told us much about the history and the nature of this country and also did his best to let us feel comfort while we were travaling in the inconvenient area. Without his effort we couldn't have this wonderful trip. Some of my friends are interested in this trip and hope to go with me on this September to view the golden yellow fields. Of course, I will ask Kien to arrange the trip for me again.

“Travel Sense Asia-Excellent experience”
Reviewed February 15, 2013 via mobile

We did a 16 day tour of Vietnam in December 2012 and had a wonderful time. We worked with David aka Kien and were so well taken care of. Kien worked with us to plan each detail of our trip. Our guides were excellent and we learned so much from them about the country, the history, the people and more. Kien checked on us at each new stop as we worked our way from Hanoi to HCM City. I have already recommended them to friends who are planning to travel in this area. A big thanks to Kien, Tam and Miss Who! :)

“Just pay for a driver, our guide didn't do any "tourguiding"”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

This is exactly what I shared with Ngo Nam at Travel Sense: The driver and tour guide for our Hanoi day tour were just average. I'm not sure why we even paid for a tour guide when he didn't "guide".

I thought we would get a city tour as we drove around but the driver and guide chatted amongst themselves the entire time. If I asked them about a building, they would stop chatting and the guide would tell us what it was then he would go right back to chatting.

At the sights, the guide would buy our ticket, walk us into the sight then tell us that he'd meet us later at the exit. Unlike the driver that Travel Sense had coordinated for us in Phnom Pehn, the Hanoi driver didn't offer us water which would have been a nice touch. I would have even paid more for this service.

Lunch at Papaya, which Travel Sense also coordinated as part of the day trip, was good but my hubby couldn't eat the seafood options. I wish we had been asked about food allergies, etc... if they were going to pick our food for us.

Dear WISCGirl,

Thank you very much for your kind feedback on your trip in Hanoi with us in your long vacation in Vietnam, Cambodia with us as in your wonderful feedback you sent us before.
Eventhough the guide was out of our guide's team after your feedback form we got from you and our investigation but we aslo still always remind other guides of this situation in their daily work. Your valuable feedback has been really good for us in improving our guide service in Hanoi and other areas. Surely your feedback will be shared to our team as one of our valuable experiences in our work.

Btw, we'd like to thank you very much for introducing Travel Sense Asia to your friends.

Hope to see you again soon in your next indochina trip.

Best regards,
David

“Vietnam and Cambodia Trip jan. 2013”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

During Dec 2012-Jan 2013 we, a group of five friends, spent three weeks traveling through Vietnam and Cambodia. After returning from the trip and having experienced the excellent organization of the trip, I strongly recommend using Travel Sense Asia to set up all the arrangements that you need in order to enjoy, and learn about, these two countries. I was in contact with Mr. Kien Trung (kien@travelsense.asia) who was very helpful, prompt and efficient in getting all the necessary arrangement (hotels, internal flights, transportation and guides) and in a reasonable price. During the three weeks we were in contact with Mr. Kien who made sure that we were O.K. and all our needs were met. To summarize, we had a great trip and much of its success was due to our decision to work through TSA.

“Personal Tours in Vietnam”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

We were delighted by the planning and efficiency of Travel Sense Asia. David was our representative and handled all of our details--even when we changed them--quickly and with very good recommendations. David's hospitality made us feel that he was taking care of family members. He was thoughtful in his recommendations, the tour guides--especially in Hanoi were very knowledgeable, excellent communicators and creative. With a last minute request to by some original art, I was brought to the Museum of Fine Arts and a lovely artist's home to view pieces. The artist had recently sold to Hilary Clinton and Danny Devito (photos to evidence). David spent time with us on the first day in Hanoi to ensure that we had a sense of our surroundings and treated for coffee!! A wonderful experience. Travel Sense's arrangements took us to Ha Long Bay and Hoi An as well as our time in Hanoi. Go to Vietnam soon!
