We only booked the evening before at 6 p.m. and had a nice confirmation directly via the whatts app. The trip with Mr. thý was an incredibly impressive experience. We were picked up right on time at the hotel in the old town, and received totally nice. We got an incredible amount of information about Vietnam, the DMZ, people's attitudes and contexts in mega good English. The lunch was simply an incredibly great and delicious experience. the car and driver were well looked after, safe and very careful .... would book it again !! We were back at the hotel at 6.30pm.

Exciting trip, very good guide.

Excursion you have to make in Vietnam to understand the story better. Our guide Vinh gave us a great insight and showed us other interesting points on the way to the EMZ and explained. There was also a great meal in Dong Ha.

A very interesting tour with lots of information about the history of Vietnam. Our guide Vinh was amazing and could tell us many details. Additionally we had the Lucky to get a private tour.
