  • Travel Style: Beach Relaxation

Congratulations to Amovietnam for the best service they have offered. As the second experience together in Southeast Asia, I and two friends (Barbara and Adele) were really satisfied with our trip.

Well organized, expert guides, helpful and attentive. Locations with great value and price. Our requiries also included places not touristic.

They recommended us in relation to the climate, very different from the three points of the other countries. Great scenery, fantastic cuisine. Emotions in the places of recent war and in other places.

The choice of AmoVietnam was by the description of places and travel not by the price. I have found in them enthusiasm, my way of living in these places, my own way of approaching and making every small detail fantastic and precious …. and then find out how we have imagined. Thanks amovietnam.

See you next time.
