HIGHLIGHTS OF NORTH VIETNAM

Good afternoon Tam

Thank you for your lovely email and going back to work was tough but we are all good and the weather is lovely and warm here in Austraila at the moment.

As far as my Vietnamese experience and the whole trip, I cannot thank you enough – it was amazing and everything you organised and did for us was fantastic. I am so happy with it all and I cannot wait until I can come back to Vietnam for another holiday.

You are an absolute asset to your company Amo Travel and I will be recommending you to everyone I know that goes to Vietnam.

Please do not worry about the thing that happened when we got dropped at the wrong station – it was just a little thing and your fast action fixed it straight away – you were amazing.

Talk real soon and have a fantastic day, my friend.

Regards,

Tammy Fitzgerald
