    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.

    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.

    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.
