Ha Long and Mekong Tour

Among various comments that we had seen on the internet, we chose to book the trip with Amo Travel – the young and competent travel team which are known to be passionate about Vietnam tourism. 2 days before our trip, we arrived in Hanoi to meet Ms.Chi – our travel consultant. Her Italian speaking is pretty good and she’s so nice and friendly. We were picked up even from our hotel. We went on our trip and everything was more than wonderful with good quality and reasonable price and of course, good food then. I can be sure that Amo Travel is excellent. Thanks a lot!
