This was our second time at Halong Bay and it was still as impressive as the first trip. Would go back again. Picture perfect (different view in the picture), company great and well organized. Thanks TripADeal.

TripADeal you excelled yourselves. In April my friend and I did the 15 day tour through Vietnam and Cambodia. Everything was beyond our expectations and we travelled with the most amazing group of people. Our tour guides had excellent knowledge of the history and areas we travelled through. One of the highlights was to be at Angkor Wat at dawn on Anzac Day. To see the sun rise in that setting on such a significant day was so moving. Thanks TripADeal.
Nicolette Cook, VIC
This was our first TripADeal trip and we were unsure what to expect as the cost was so reasonable. WOW! Great hotels, tour guides, transport etc etc, TERRIFIC value!!! Added to that we were travelling with a fantastic group of of all ages and we just laughed and laughed the whole time. Halong Bay was a favourite; so peaceful and relaxing and what gorgeous scenery! This was an excellent introduction in 2015 to a lovely country - we enjoyed it so much that we are heading back in July this year.
Jackie Bern, WA
My husband & I went on a trip a deal 18 day tour of Vietnam. It was well organised, brilliant itinerary and great accommodation. It far exceeded our expectations. Thank you.
Gil Linton, NSW
I am slowly ticking off my bucket list. Angkor Wat has always been high on the list, and with the TripADeal Vietnam and Cambodia tour I was finally able to get there. It blew me away - no photo does it justice. Next tick is the Great Wall in China, booked for September.
Alison Easten, QLD
This photo was taken on Halong Bay and shows the simplicity of the lives of the people who live there. This young boy was paddling around with his feet without a care in the world, enjoying the serenity of this beautiful place. I would highly recommend visiting Vietnam and Cambodia on a Trip-a-Deal holiday to anyone, the accommodation, attractions, meals, guides were all excellent. Already thinking about where I might go next.
Maria-Rose Northam, SA
Our trip exceeded our expectations in every level! A part from the fact that Vietnam is an amazing country, with beautiful people, food & culture, our TripADeal was close to perfect! All flights, transfers & tours occurred seamlessly, the accommodation was fantastic & there was the perfect mix of organised sightseeing, alone time, adventure & relaxation. We would definitely use TripADeal again & can't wait to see more of Vietnam! THANK YOU! This is us exploring the Mekong Delta!
