We've just finished an 11 day tour of Vietnam courtesy of Go Asia Travel.
It was a tour package that we bought on line.
We made the following changes to the package:
1. With Go Asia's help, we added on a few extra days in Hanoi at the start; and an extra day in Ho Chi Minh City at the end;
2. We upgraded some of the components of the tour - eg. we changed the Halong Bay overnight cruise from a 3 star to a 4 star cruise; and we changed the train trip from Hanoi to Hoi An to a flight.
3. We added on additional day and half day trips, with help from Go Asia.
All in all, we couldn't have been more happier with Go Asia, and in particular Ms Lee, who was our contact person.
Everything went so smoothly, nothing was a problem - we couldn't fault the service at all.
What we did find interesting was that we thought we would be on a tour with a number of other people. In fact, the size of the tour group was our only worry heading over there. But in reality that's not the case. In effect what Go Asia do is organise your trip and itinerary - they organise the hotels; pick up and drop off from airports and hotels; and pick and drop off on day trips. Most of these pick ups and drops off were just us. The only exception was that there were other people (from all sorts of sources) on most of day tours.
Often we found that these other people had to pay extra for things such as entrance tickets and lunches, whilst Go Asia had already prepaid ours. Talk about hassle free ... and being made to feel special.
Aside from one other couple (who we realised were doing the same itinerary as us, once we met up with them again in Hoi An), we didn't meet anyone else on "the trip".
So if you're worried about tour group sizes, then you don't need to be with this sort of package.
We will definitely be using Go Asia Travel again for our Asian adventures!!
