Karin Lendvai & Klaus Schaefer | Sapa | Vietnam

Itinerary: Conquer Mount Fansipan - Cat Cat Route
Date: March 14, 2010 - March 20, 2010
Nationality: German

Hello Ms Jessie,

Our tour ( Cat Cat Route ) was the best we could decide. The guide and the three boys, who carried all our necessary things ( and more ) were " great ". They also carried nearly 40 eggs !!!! fresh fruit, vegetables.... the food, they made on campfire was 5 *, better than a hotel. I never thought before, that our trekking will be so well organized and so friendly accompanied.

We are very satisfied with your organisation and with the group and the strong guide Dan :-), the nature, the top of Mt. Fansipan, the flowers, the bamboo forest., especially the Cat Cat Route!.... the train, the hotel , the meals, the small town Sapa with all the friendly people there........

Thank you for all
Best regards from spring in Old Germany
Karin and Klaus

Dear Jessie,

yes, we are all back home safely, thank you.

We had a great time in the beautiful country Vietnam.

Let me point out what we liked best in this trip

1. The hiking to Mt. Fansipan was absolutely great. We especially liked that we went a 4 day trip instead of just 2 day, as most tourists do. That way, taking the longer route, we saw beautiful nature and not many other tourists. The food was sensational and the organization was perfect. We had a very nice young guide named San (or Sang? Sam? Spelling of Vietnamese names is difficult for us…) who we would highly recommend. It would be nice if you could pass on our happiness about San to his boss.

2. Also, Quyen was a great guide for Hanoi and Halong bay. We highly recommend him. It was nice to spend several days with him, and he made us feel like friends, not just like tourists. He even spent some of his evening time with us, which we greatly appreciated. He also introduced us to the real Vietnamese foods which is eaten on the street, rather than in fancy restaurants.

3. The food in Vietnam was the best we have ever had

4. The tour itinerary was very complete…we feel we have visited the highlights of the country.

5. The organization of all the different tours was perfect. Everybody was on time and everything worked out nicely. Everyone involved was absolutely reliable.

6. The hotels that were picked out were very good, especially the one in Hoi An. That was the most beautiful place we had ever slept!..

Altogether we all had a great time and enjoyed Vietnam very much and would return to the country anytime.

Thank you very much for all your help,

Best wishes and greetings from Germany,

P.S. Could you please give me Quyen’s e-mail? He gave it to me, but I unfortunately washed my trousers with the piece of paper in it. I would like to send him some pictures. Thank you

Dear Sunny,

At last I am able to reply to your letters of enquiry regarding our tour taken with your company in Hanoi on 7th March, 2010,

I am pleased to say that we had an excellent day with Hai, who was a most attentive and informative guide. I feel we formed a friendship with Hai during our time together. This was particularly pleasing as we had been given a personal recommendation to your company by our friends in Brisbane, Mr and Mrs. Bruce Woodruffe who had traveled in Hanoi two months earlier.

We visited Brisbane on our way home to Sydney, and were able to tell Mrs. Woodruffe how pleased we were with our day with Hai.

Please give him our best wishes. Our daughter, son-in-law and children are planning a trip to Hanoi in December and will be in touch with you when their holiday time comes closer.

Thank you for your interest in our holiday, and for the service which your company provided.

With kind regards,

Barbara Seaton
