Lauhging Roo can do anything you need. With Zumi and Leigh's local knowledge and connections and great understanding of tourist requirements and predicaments, they are simply amazing form start to finish. Before you even book to fly into Vietnam, email Leigh and Zumi who can advise from the moment you leave home to the moment you return. Personally designed tours, guides and information we will always use their fantastic service for anything we need in Hoi An or anywhere in Vietnam to get around. You won't be disappointed.

We didn't use LR for traditional tour services, but needed to book some train tickets, and then change those train tickets as Typhoon Haiyan was bearing right down on Hoi An.

LR was able to get us the 65% refund due on the existing tickets, book us decent soft sleeper seats, and help us get away from the forecast Typhoon path ....

Tickets we delivered to our hotel in an hour ... And this was probably the easiest travel agent transaction we have had in a long time. And she even gave the kiddies a T shirt ... Nice touch ..... professional service.

Our family of two adults and two children (14 & 12) had one of the best holidays we have ever had. We try to do different things like cruising, motor home touring etc., however the 8 day tour including trekking, bicycle and walking tours, overnight train, boat was a little out of our comfort zone. The tour was run seamlessly. Drivers were there when they were supposed to be, the tour guides were the best, and the hotels were excellent. Travelling as we did, nothing went wrong at all, everything was planned down to the last detail. We can't stop telling everybody how wonderful Laughing Roo was to deal with. The thing that really made our holiday was the friendly, and ever so helpful tour guides - top notch!! Thank you also for The Landmark Hotel that we spent the majority of our time at - they made our holiday a pleasure. We did spend a couple of days at a five star hotel before going home, and yes the breakfast was a better and the room a bit bigger etc, but we really missed the atmosphere that The Landmark Hotel had. Wished we had stayed there for the duration. The most memorable tour while in Hanoi was the food night tour with our guide 'Johny' what a wonderful night that was. Thank you again Laughing Roo - will be a holiday our family will talk about for a very long time.

We booked a South Vietnam/Cambodia 10 day tour with Laughing Roo and were a bit apprehensive as it was booked online - first online holiday we have booked. It was a fabulous holiday with excellent hotels, tours, guides and service. We received phone calls every night or two to let us know what was happening next and everything went like clockwork. We were transferred from tour guide to tour guide with no hitches at all. We were home three days and booked another tour with them for next year. Other Aussies we met in the group tours along the way were quite envious of the first class treatment we received and our guides, especially for the private tours were amazing. Happy to share their personal stories with us. Would recommend Laughing Roo to anyone.

I first heard of Laughing Roo through an internet deal. Leigh was so very helpful helping us to plan our 12 day Vietnam holiday so that it was child-friendly and interesting. His communication with us was amazing and he was only too happy to answer any of my questions or concerns. His attention to detail and personalised service was phenomenal!

Each part of our holiday was amazing. We had tour people/transfers pick us up when they were meant to and the tours themselves were great. All of the hotels that they booked, and the meals that were included in our package, were fantastic! We even had Leigh's lovely wife Dzung meet us for dinner and drinks in Hoi An - just another little something to make our holiday all the more special and our experience with Laughing Roo all the more exceptional.

The only thing I would suggest for any other families considering a package is that if you decide to go to Sapa (which is totally worthwhile visiting), perhaps get a taxi to the bottom of the hill at the start of the trek (to reduce walking distance) as the 12 km walk was really tiring for all of us, but the kids were totally wiped out. Our guide that accompanied us apparently did take us on the flatter walk but it was still hard work due to the heat and humidity. Poor kiddies went to bed at our home stay at 4pm and woke up the next day at 8.30! Other than that, it was all superb!!!

I am so pleased we went on this Vietnam trip and mostly pleased that Leigh and Dzung did all the planning for us - it took out all the stress and thinking that may be needed when you plan a holiday to another country.

Thank you so much Laughing Roo!!!
