"It was a pleasure meeting with you in Hanoi, and thank you for the lacquer dishes that you gave to us. We had a great time in Vietnam, and we will always treasure our memories from that trip. The itinerary, as well as the guides met and exceeded our expectations.That being said, we would recommend our friends to your tour company as you were willing to work with us on the itinerary as well as accommodations. We liked the tour guides and the drivers too, although us westerners are not quite used to the very dangerous driving styles in Vietnam. Thank you again." Suzanne Cederlund
