"We had a fantastic experience with Asia Travel /Halong Bay Cruise Deals agency. We're looking for a 2N/1D Halong Bay cruise for the New Year and they offered great assistance and different options. They were so impressive that we decided to ask them to organize the remaining part of our Tour in Vietnam in Hanoi, Hoi An, Hue and Ho Chi Min. Special thanks to Ms Ngoc Pham for her full collaboration and courtesy while organizing our tour and during the entire staying in Vietnam."
