Best Experience Ever

The best of the best… don’t bother researching any other companies to help you w your travel. I’ve used Go Southeast Asia Travel twice, and the most recent trip was to Vietnam. I’m a 62 yo woman and I travel 1x a year on a solo trip to somewhere I’ve never been before. I’ve been doing this since 1984 and have been to 48 countries. So, I have some travel chops and I can say without any hesitation, Go Southeast Asia Travel is the best company with whom I’ve worked. I contacted them after doing some research on the areas of Vietnam I wanted to see. I heard from them right away. I could tell by the initial response, I was talking to an expert. They asked all the right questions regarding the type of trip I was interested in (ie., relaxing, cultural, adventure, food). They asked about budget, time frame, type of hotels, what level of activity, and other very important questions. I had initially emailed a few companies and received responses back that sounded like I had reached out to a salesperson versus a person interested in helping me build a trip to Vietnam. It was also important to me to use a company in Vietnam so my money was going to Vietnam. The hotels booked for me were stunning and beyond my expectations. The itinerary was fun to put together with my contact person because she knew when to really encourage me to try something I had not initially planned on doing. And boy was she (always) right. The days were put together in a way that allowed just enough time to really explore, and enough downtime. The flights were organized, the tickets to get into UNESCO sites were paid for, it was absolutely seamless. I saw things not shown in the travel books or trip advisor so I felt like I was on a trip with Vietnamese friends showing me their home country. Also as a single woman traveler, it’s sometimes difficult to avoid getting hit on by guides. The guides Go Southeast Asia Travel hired were extremely professional and knowledgeable. I learned so much. Their English was fantastic. Their ability to be flexible was also great. I never felt like since something was on the itinerary we had to do exactly that. Sometimes we changed things if I wanted to. The drivers were all super safe, the cars were clean, always had water and hand sanitizers. Go Southeast Asia Travel stayed in my budget and never tried to push it beyond what I initially set. The Visa to Vietnam was taken care of, the airport pickups were right on time, out the door with their signs so I felt like I was always taken care of. Also, the experts at Go Souteast Asia Travel were available pretty much my entire trip. Checking on me to make sure things were going well. I felt like not only was I with an expert Guide and Driver, but I also had my contact person available if need be. It was an enchanting trip because it was Vietnam and because it was put together by Go Southeast Asia Travel. Bravo to their team!
