- Overall, my traveling buddy and I loved everything about our trip through northern Vietnam, Laos & Thailand. The itinerary is fast paced so, for us, 2 weeks were sufficient at this pace. We were grateful for the 2-day slowboat ride on the Mekong River! Our guides were all excellent; they were knowledgeable and personable. Our accommodations exceeded our expectations. Our guides in Laos (Soon) & Thailand (Wits) went beyond the itinerary with additional sightseeing guiding, which was much appreciated!
One thing I would strongly recommend is planning an extra day in Hanoi before the start of the trip. We ended up only having 2 afternoons in Hanoi and missed visiting Ho-Chi Min's tomb as it's only opened in the morning and the Women's Museum because we didn't get back from Ha Long Bay until 3 PM (it closed at 5).
Overall, this was an amazing trip! I highly recommend this company and this trip.
