Dear Mr Alex Duy, 

thank you so much for very good organization during the whole trip. We really enjoyed our visit to Vietnam and we are so happy to see your beautiful country! 

I'm recommending your services to my friends. Please forward my best regards and thank you to the guides. They really did their best, showing us so many interesting places, and being so friendly and helpful.

Piotr Piesik.


Dear Ms Thuy Hang, 
On behalf of our small group, I’d like to say “Thank You” for a wonderful trip to Vietnam. You have been very patient with us, and you have done a marvelous job. We are very satisfied! 
Now we feel that we have seen big parts of your beautiful country, - the South in 2012 and the North this year. Still we know that there are many other places to visit, - so maybe we will come back another year. At least we will tell all our friends about Vietnam, and we will really recommend Vietnam Paradise Travel. 
All over the country we met nice and friendly people. The guides you picked out for us were all friendly and knowledgeable. The one in Sapa had a very good pronunciation of the English language which made him very easy to understand. 
We are also very satisfied with the hotels you found for us. The last night in Hanoi we even got the hotel’s honeymoon suites which made us feel young and very much in love again. 
Now we are safe and sound back in Norway. My wife and I have already had two nights in our cabin up in the mountains. We have been skiing, and temperatures were as low as minus 16. 
A big contrast to Vietnam. 
I wish you, your guides and Vietnam Paradise Travel all the best.
