Would have been useful to know about a visa when we got to Vietnam as we couldn't go through passport control. We had to wait for 3 hours in arrivals until the next airline could check us in. Everything else was great, we had flights cancelled and you sorted us out, thank you.

This was a holiday outside the norm for us. It was fantastic, well organised, great guides, great people, great country. We never felt uncomfortable or out of our comfort zone. I just wish we had a few more days to do things we missed. I guess we will have to go back

Dubai airport was comfortable and efficient but the security checks were a bit OTT, possibly to demonstrate statistics of activity.

Everything went like clockwork. The tour company in Vietnam was 5 star for all aspects of their service. Hotels all good with Renaissance Riverside in Ho Chi Minh City being excellent. We needed a triple room however in 2 of the 4 hotels we were allocated a king room with an extra bed - not ideal for 3 adults.
