My wife and I recently traveled to Viet Nam (March 2013) and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. One of the most pleasant places was Hoi An and surrounds and made more memorable by a wonderful man by the name of Shaun. Shaun is an excellent Ambassador for Viet Nam and the travel company he works for, which is Tam Singh Travel. I highly recommend Tam Singh Travel, nothing was to hard and any issues or concerns we had were quickly sorted.
My wife decided to try using a personal driver to travel about Viet Nam and compared prices with other options. We found that it was much cheaper to hire a personal driver than it was to go on organised tours.
On one of our trips out from Da Nang was to Me Son (Mee Sun), I wanted a photo of a Water Buff, Shaun knew where to get the best photo and I got it.
We asked for a seven seat car (SUV) so that we had plenty of room. Shaun, from Tam Singh Travel, was an excellent driver and our safety was always his prime concern, other than us having a great time and seeing the most of his country.
We also used Tam Singh Travel for a personal driver in Saigon, to take us to such places as the Mekong Delta and Long Tan.
