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.
