This trip was special. It was to celebrate my 50th birthday. I was born in Vietnam and had been dreaming of visiting my country again but never had the time or the money to take the trip until I turned 50. We loved every city that we visited. They were each very special and unique. We found beauty everywhere that we went, the people were kind, the food was amazing, and the history was rich. We could have easily stayed another 2 weeks to see more of Vietnam.
We loved everything about my trip. If I had to pick something, I would say that we scheduled too many activities and could have used an extra day or two to relax. Both my husband and I did get a bit of the stomach bug, probably from the raw oysters that we ate on the beach.
We traveled to 7 cities in Vietnam. There was so much that we wanted to see and simply not enough time. The best thing about Evaneos was that they allowed us to customize the trip.

The best thing about Evaneos was that they allowed us to customize the trip. We started out with a budget, several locations and areas that we wanted to see, and the dates. After many emails back and forth with Ly, we created the perfect trip to Vietnam. We went over budget and added 3 more days but I wouldn't have changed a thing. The hotels that were chosen for us were perfect and each one was different from the other which made it nice to try out different styles. We had 3 tour guides who were all very knowledgeable of their regions and went the extra mile for us. We were delighted that we had the guides all to ourselves and that we had private transportation throughout the trip. Because we were not part of a big tour, I was able to see the neighborhood and the actual house of where I used to live back in 1969-1975. That was the highlight of my trip!!!
