My boyfriend and I have always talked about visiting Vietnam and we are so happy we finally did! This tour took us to some of the coolest places and we got the best photos ever!!!! Thank you so much to the ForeverVacation team for being so responsive and friendly, you have a customer for life with us! We will be back soon! :)
Great tour, great service, great guide
mtiger06, 16-03-2020
We loved this tour. The service was very professional and you get what’s promised. They picked us up promptly in the morning (we were late). Bao, our guide was very knowledgeable and had excellent English. The tour itself took us where it promised. We finished way earlier because we didn’t take as much time for pictures.
We had an SUV with excellent AC vents at the back. The driver was also experienced enough to know to start the car/AC before we got in. Car was always cool. If you are like me, that’s a must! Thank you!!
Saigon is city of lights

Had a great time with Bao. He knows a lot about the city and took care of us. The car is clean and the driver did a great job driving through the busy street of Saigon.

Highly recommend
