We had a great time going through Vietnam with Youin company. The tour guides are all very informative and always have something to talk about. Van who emailed me regarding the tour was always fast and informative. The four star hotels in Vietnam are the equivalent of three star hotels in Europe so upgrading to five star hotels i would definitely recommend doing. The location of all the hotels are fantastic for walking around, particularly at night too. The food is great throughout the tour.
We found Youin Travel through FB Community Group. They were in general quick in responding, we were happy with their hotel choices, good value for money. We didn’t have much time to organise our trip and over some conversations on phone plus some emails of itinerary and quotation, they organised our trip the way I wanted. Definitely highly recommend Youin Company for those who are busy as me.
We visited most of the must-see sites of Vietnam although the whole country. We were on some tours but also always had free time to walk and explore for ourselves, which my partner likes and always prefers to do. All hotels are good services and very central. Highly recommend Youin Travel for their services and advice.
It was our first time travel to Vietnam, we had no idea where we should go to. Greg gave us lots of good information about where to go and what to do and also asked many questions about what we wanted for our holiday to make sure that the itinerary is exactly what we are looking for. It didn’t take us long to agree on the itinerary and hotel choices. Best travel agency!
Our sons had a great time in Vietnam. They planned to go back when we were on our home flight already. I just want to say thank you Youin Travel team for an amazing trip. They know what we need for a trip with 2 boys, which took lots of pressure off me travelling with kids. All hotels are family friendly. We enjoyed our tours, our son likes our guides, they are very friendly and helpful.
We highly recommend Youin Travel and can't thank the team enough for making our trip so memorable. Everything went smoothly as the itinerary, we were happy with the hotels, our tour guide was amazing, was knowledgeable, friendly, and went above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience. He shared fascinating insights about the culture and history of the region.
Had an amazing trip. My girlfriend and I did 20 days in Vietnam. Learned some history about Vietnam and saw beautiful places, it was good to know about local culture and food as well. Very warm people and interesting things to learn and see. We enjoyed a lot.
We were so very lucky to have Van as our Travel Consultant. With less than 2 week notice from our travel date Van put together the perfect itinerary for us and managed to include even more than we asked for. The price was so cheap, we were really amazed at how much was included. Van organised absolutely everything for us, all accommodations, private sightseeing tours, private transfers, domestic and international flights and even our Vietnam Visas. While on tour everything ran exactly to plan and we absolutely loved every minute of our time in both countries. All of the Accommodation was excellent. All Drivers we had was on time, friendly, and made us feel comfortable.
Van organised a fantastic private tour which was coordinated seamlessly from start to finish. The guides she chose were attentive and informative. I would highly recommend Van to organise a private tour.
What an amazing trip. I decided to go for 13 nights and 14 days and it was the best decision ever. I coordinated everything with Greg, he was outstanding, answered all my questions, was very responsive. I recommend him 100%. About the private trip, don’t think it twice and book it. I had a great time with my wife and 12-year-old son. 100% recommend.
We had the most remarkable family tour in Vietnam which Youin Travel organised for us. Not only everything was perfect, but we felt that our guides truly cared about us, both the twin boys and adults, and did their best to make this trip memorable. For our boys, this definitely has become the most eye-opening, adventurous and captivating journey of their life - something they will remember and cherish for many years to come. We were pleasantly surprised by the diversity of our trip: from archaeological sites, swimming, kayaking and riding small boats, to excellent experiences on board of our wonderful cruise and every new activity offered new experiences. We definitely enjoyed them all! We highly recommend Youin Travel.
We had a fantastic trip. All hotels were good, all private transfers and tours were included. Our tour guide was extremely informative and knowledgeable. Would 100% recommend.
We have taken a customized Vietnam tour which was very easily arranged by Van at Youin Travel. She was great to rearrange the itinerary very flexibly, communicated all the the details and everything went very smoothly. We were picked up, transported and guided at every location. The accommodations were very good, all of our guides were knowledgeable and nice, we have learned a lot about Vietnam's history, food and people. It was a very enjoyable trip and I highly recommend Youin Travel.
This trip was a customised trip just for 2 of us. There were a couple of occasions where we joined a larger group, which worked out without any difficulty. We had a driver and guide assigned solely to us, which gave us the opportunity to get more in-depth information on the various sites. The guides were knowledgeable and understandable. Our contact person at Youin Travel is Greg, he was excellent at responding back to us when we had questions and generally did a very good job of keeping us informed about the little details. For the money, this trip was well worth it, and priced better than 3 other companies we contacted when 1st looking into going over to the 3 countries we visited.
I was very satisfied with the service Youin Travel provided and particularly Greg. He answered my questions in a timely matter. I felt assured I was getting exactly what I wanted, and the trip was amazing.
Had a great and well-organised trip to Ha Long Bay from Hanoi and onwards to Ninh Binh. Van did a good job in organising everything for us and was always quick to help. Halong Bay experience was the absolute highlight of our holiday in Vietnam. The food was amazing, and plenty. Loved going kayaking. So beautiful. I was impressed that every communication was prompt between travel agent and us and accurate in all information provided.
