Outstanding service from first pre-trip contact to final day of our family's 2 week trip to Vietnam. Sen (our travel agent) made the entire experience very easy. She kept in contact with us and the contracted guides & hotels throughout our stay. We had not a single glitch the entire time. Highly recommended.
Tip: Make sure you schedule some days of "down time," meaning no tour. The tour days are very full, and it's a lot to take-in.

During February and March this year (2019) we had the most wonderful holiday for 43 days travelling through Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. In 2018 I contacted Tuan of Absolute Asia Travel and he put together a programme for a personal tour for us. Over a few weeks we discussed by email and “Skype calls” the itinerary, to see as much as possible. So much was included - we would never have thought of the Vietnamese Cooking Class, but had a super morning there and really enjoyed eating lunch of all the items we prepared. Even my husband was amazed at his cooking abilities as he never tries anything like that at home! Another was our visit to the Organic Rice Farm – so informative and great fun. I could go on and on, it was just so wonderful. Every driver and guide looked after us so well and vehicles were of a high standard and we were given really informative visits to all the main tourist places visiting the Cu Chi tunnels, Angkor Temples, the Killing Fields etc. Even when we had to re-schedule as my husband had to get to a clinic for medical attention, it was sorted out so efficiently. I was so thankful I had booked through Absolute Asia Travel as many of our British companies I’m sure would not have been so competent at a time like that.
Thank you Tuan for all your kindness and expert travel organisational skills. I am now telling all our friends of your company and I hope your business flourishes as it really deserves to.

Anna’s Sticky Rice Group. Having suggested locations the 6 of us wanted to visit I quickly received a detailed schedule of what was possible within our travel dates. It was really comprehensive and excellent value. Once agreed we got a six page email down to the finest detail for each leg of our travels including all the guides names and contact details. The guides and drivers, flights and hotels were all perfect. As for our trips....they all exceeded our expectations and it was good to see how Vietnam had developed with the environment in mind since our last visit 5 years ago. We have been lucky to have visited many parts of this planet of ours and personalised tours for small groups can vary greatly in quality. We can state without any reservations that this is the best trip we have had and that is in great part down to an excellent company who kept in touch with us all through our trip to make sure everything and everyone was ok.
Don’t miss out on Vietnam and please don’t miss out on this excellent company

Booked a Vietnam and Cambodia trip with Sen in April 2019. In the planning stage, she was eager to call and make amendments that I suggested and make other recommendations. Everything ran smoothly. When an internal flight was delayed for many hours, Sen arranged another flight at a more suitable time. She also called and emailed during the trip to ensure that things were okay and gave frequent reminders of the next items on my schedule.

I took a 10 day vacation with Evaneous March 4-13 , 2019, for the area around Hanoi , Halong Bay , Ninh Binh, Tam Coc and an overstay at a National Park, Poulong . Overall the trip components and content were excellent. Too bad the weather put a damper on things, excuse the pun , on a few days. Drivers and the Guides were very polite, informed, knowledgeable and spoke understandable English. They were excellent, all five of them.
The downside is that the individualslized components of the trip were a bit disorganized, we were not completely sure of the agenda and at times pickups were supposed to be by a bus or a minivan at the very least, but got picked up on a scooter and I had big luggage. They made up for it by offering me an upgraded room which I appreciated. The other thing is that we could have avoided so many return trips to Hanoi if the itinerary was better laid out. Last but not least, I believe the overall trip is a bit pricey. I recommend it but I also recommend a more tailored route to avoid so many return trips to Hanoi.

Review by Dehns Czekirda8 months ago
We went with Absolute Asia for a 12 days Vietnam tour including 3days 2 night cruise in Halong Bay.
All our guide were very knowledgeable, friendly with good sense of humor. The foods were very delicious, transportation was fantastic especially our 1st driver in Ho Chin Minh.
The whole trip was superb but our highlight was Hoi An - the lanterns was so beautiful and colourful.
We will definitely come back to Vietnam and will be using Absolute Asia travel. Tom & Lin

Me and my fiancé went on a two week trip to Vietnam in September/October last year. It was based on one of the suggested tours and then customized to our interests by Sen at Absolute Asia Travel.
Sen's help was invaluable both before the trip in the planning stages, and during the trip.
To understand what type of travel we are interested in she asked a number of detailed questions. Then she made suggestions based on our interests, and accommodated all our change requests.
She gave us multiple itineraries with accommodations at different standards, and then we could just mix and match for ourselves.
Sen also advised and helped us with the visa process, and she answered all of our questions promptly.
During the trip itself we were free to call or message her at any time if we needed any help. This was in general not needed as we were with our guides most of the time, but it is nice to know that you have that option. Sen checked in with us regularly over the course of the trip to make sure everything was alright. Most importantly she kept an eye on the weather forecast and switched our itinerary around as necessary to minimize the rain having a negative impact on our travels.
I would strongly recommend Absolute Asia Travel, and Sen especially. There is no easier and more relaxing way to plan your Asia travels.

Excellent service from start to finish!

On top of it I had online support always available to help me with information and adjustments. Highly recommended!

Review by DustOff11 months ago
We had a great itinerary for our 10 day visit to Vietnam. Everything worked well and I wouldn't change a thing. Our guides were interesting, knowledgeable and punctual. They knew exactly what was happening when and made sure we did. They were good at making sure we had as much or as little information as we wanted. The hotels were all slightly different from each other and very good. The restaurants chosen for us were very good too and we probably wouldn't have found them on our own. Absolute Asia Travel were easy to work with, especially with some last minute changes and I would use them again.

My recent trip to Siem Reap was incredible, made even more so by your company's meticulous attention to detail, and even more so by my guide Sokky. His depth and breadth of knowledge, and his ability to communicate it was outstanding, and most impressive. He knew the best times to visit all the sites, and with his driver, assured my experience was phenomenal. he even communicated my dietary needs to the facilities we frequented. I was and remain deeply impressed with and by your company's attention to detail, and efforts to make my trip quite outstanding and memorable. Thank you!

My husband and I made a wonderful trip to Vietnam and Cambodia using Absolute Asia. Tuan organized an amazing itinerary that incorporated the elements we wished to see, making suggestions that allowed us to maximize our time throughout. The guides and drivers which were provided were excellent! Such an added value to have local experts accompanying us and explaining the history, culture, and customs of the regions. We are planning another trip in the near future and will be using Absolute Asia to make the travel arrangements and for their guidance throughout. An excellent value that can't be matched by US-based companies.

Review by Dborah1 year ago
Absolute Asia Travel provided us with a 7 day non-trekking itinerary in the mountainous far North East in Vietnam.Our English speaking driver/guide Mr Son was highly experienced and from the area and passionate about the land and it's people.
We were safe & really comfortable travelling in the SUV. There was every opportunity to be as active as we wanted, photograph the spectacular scenery, mingle in local markets, visit minority tribe villages and eat local foods.
This trip exceeded my expectations and it was a pleasure to see and learn so much. I would highly recommend travelling with this company.

Tuan did a wonderful job of organizing a 19-day, multi- country trip in July 2018. We already had some places in mind that we wanted to visit and Tuan made helpful suggestions and was flexible with any changes we wanted to make to the itinerary. He was very responsive to any questions (and we had a lot) and was transparent with all fees. Our guides in each city (and country) were waiting for us at the airport and our drivers were very safe, courteous and friendly. Our guides in each country were knowledgable, personable, and enthusiastic. Along with the history and culture of each place we visited, the local guides shared their personal experiences, which gave you a deeper experience of each place you were visiting. We will definitely be using Tuan again. Thank you for all of your hard work in organizing such wonderful trip.

We really appreciate that you had specially arranged the tour route according to our special request..we are very grateful and satisfied with your meticulous arrangements. You also possess in depth knowledge of the history of Vietnam and were full of sharing which greatly benefitted us.
During this trip, we could really feel the warm and cordial nature of Vietnam friends..
Worthy of special mention is that we all came to a realisation that during the Vietmam war, the Vietnamese people displayed great will of courage , determination and wisdom to survive the most arduous moments..We are full of awe and deep respect for these Vietnamese friends..
