I was SOOOO fortunate to pick Tweet World Travel to organise my Vietnam holiday last October . I travelled with my wife and 5 friends for three weeks taking in Ho Chi Minh city , Hoi An , Da Nang , Hue and Hanoi/Halong Bay. The trip was just so well prepared , with private transport and English speaking guides for the whole trip . So many excursions ( all paid for ) included in the holiday . we saw so many wonderful historic places , stayed in beautiful hotels and had some fantastic meals in great restaurants all over Vietnam. We saw so much more because Twee prepared the whole trip for us. We would have missed so much otherwise. All in the very best holiday ever..Frank O'Reilly. ...

07-Jun-2016

We have just had 3 wonderful weeks in Vietnam, visiting Mekong Delta, Ho Chi Minh City, Danang/Hoi An, Hanoi, SaPa & Halong Bay & can highly recommend Tweet World Travel. We had already booked some accommodation ourselves at a beachside resort but wanted to extend our holiday to travel around & see more of Vietnam. Twee did a fantastic job at organising our itinerary around what we had already booked & suggested activities & sightseeing trips to us that we had not considered. We certainly enjoyed all the activities & experienced much more than if we had tried to organise it ourselves. It was also very reassuring to know that I could easily contact Twee if I needed advice on anything at all while we were away. The guides on all our day trips were fantastic - very friendly & looked after us all very well. They were all happy to share information about their lives with us which made the trip more memorable & enjoyable with some unique experiences. Highlights of our trip were Hoi An (especially the Hoi An Food Tour - lots of fun, on the back of motorbikes), SaPa (especially sightseeing by motor bike, although wouldn't recommend the noisy train trip to get there), Cycling around villages in the Mekong Delta (away from tourist areas), Halong Bay cruise & the gorgeous Apricot Hotel.
