Hi Thi,


Happy New Yr and sorry for my late reply, but I just wrote a review for our trip to the fishing village and the museum..... by far, that was one of the best tours that we took and we love the people at the fishing village, the time that they spent teaching us how to fish/crab/cook and made lunch for us and foot massage... we had an amazing time and will be back soon with our family n friends... our tour guide, Bay, was awesome as well... he was so patient in bringing us to all the places and just wait for us to immerse ourselves into the Vietnamese culture...


Thx again and have a great new year filled with peace, joy, happiness, health, and prosperity.



Nicole Duong - The USA - Nov 2019


Tour itinerary covered what we hoped for.

Transport: great to have plenty of room on bus. River boat, sampan, tuk tuk very good & gave good insight into local area.

Lunch was impressive and tasty.

Mr. Quang was very informative, taking good care of us and made it a very personal tour. Excellent English.


Dan Dufon  - The UK - Nov 2019


A very nice tour!

Regarding the rip to Cu Chi, maybe better to book for an other transportation than a bus transportation. Maybe by boat?

The stay in HCMC was 1 day too short for some of our customers.

One night in Sapa would be enough but we need to visit the Fanxipan by cable way.

We are very satisfied about the services of Mr. Anh. I recommend him for the next trip.


Andre Gielen - Belgium - Nov 2019

Shaun - New Zealand - Oct 2019


Hello Thi

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip, Linh and her dad enjoyed the day too.   

Tony our tour guide whom we picked up Ba Ria was very informative and most helpful, we felt we were there with our friend who fought in the battle, but has now passed away in the last 3 years.

We had a very good driver and the car was very comfortable.  We were sorry we did not know he was waiting outside in the morning and we were waiting inside and began phoning your office to find out where he was.  Maybe a sign of some sort would have been helpful for the driver and ourselves, as we did not know what type of car we were looking for and several tourists were coming and going from the hotel.

I have enjoyed using your company for the second time and will definitely recommend you to others.

Kind Regards

Francis Duvivier - Belgium - June 2019 


Hello Thi,
So sorry it has taken so long for me to get back to you with feedback from our trip.
We were very impressed with how smoothly everything went. We very glad to have had English speaking guides and excellent drivers throughout our trip. They were all very professional, friendly and eager to help.
Restaurants chosen excellent and food delicious. The restaurants we ate in the first time in Beijing, served delicious food but standard not so good.
Food portions were always big, made my husband very happy!
The sites and places were of great interest. However, maybe too many temples. Even though they are of importance to the town or city and to the history and culture of the country, for us, we could have seen less. It was a bit repetitive. It’s like doing tours in Europe, often people complain there’s too many churches or cathedrals!
We would have liked to have gone to factory outlets, instead of the silk and pearl markets in Beijing. Or smaller street shops where we could just meander through. There were a few we saw in our travels so maybe for future tours this may be of interest to tourists. We realise it’s customary to bargain and for the shop keepers to be so persistent but it spoilt our experience a little as it made us disinterested in continuing. We just wanted to get away from the place altogether as quickly as possible.
Hope this feedback has been informative and helpful.
Thank you Thi for your help and your colleagues in China.

Kind regards

Nor Asmah - Malaysia - Mar 2019


Dear Mrs. Thi,

 We would like to thank you for organising our wonderful journey with Reisbrigade.

 Mr. So, a very friendly exited guide has let us enjoy the splendor of the Sapa.

 The three days on the cruise ship in the Halong Bay were also beautiful, we had a very nice hut and the staff was very friendly.

 And then the cities of Hanoi, Hue, Hoi An and Ho Chi Minh, beautiful cities with every time a fine guide.

 We really enjoyed the scooter ride on the Hai Van Pas. The drivers drove very secure and carefully.

 To us, Fabio in Ho Chi Minh City was the absolute top Guide. Nothing was too much for him, he answered  hundreds of questions, about anything on the market for sale, about how the people on the islands live, all about  the Mekong Delta, just fantastic.

 And then a delicious final piece of our holiday with a pleasant stay in Mui Ne Beach.

We look back on a wonderful journey that was very well taken care of. Also very nice to report that everyone always came to collect us in good time.

We have never had to wait on a guide or taxi, our compliments.
Also very nice that you called a few times in between to ask if all went well.

 With best regards, 

Frans en Ria van den Hamer - The Netherlands - Mar 2019
