Lovely trip in Vietnam

Well, Mike, you did it again…my 5th trip to Vietnam, my 4th with Ansova Travel and what a cracker holiday it was…So well orchestrated and with new things to see each time. Thanks for making our journey so smooth, your recommendations were perfect, especially our Vespa tour in Saigon, nothing beats being amongst that crazy traffic…lol
I can’t wait to return again…Cheers

Thanks again,

“I personally want to thank everyone there for your hard work and patience during a very difficult situation with the typhoon.  It would have been a complete nightmare without your help and I am extremely grateful (and I know Sandra was as well). I look forward to more business in the future!”

“Thank you very much for taking such good care of them – and for being very professional to work with, I appreciated your detail in every communication and the timeliness of every response.  It is so rare today in this business!
I won’t hesitate to recommend Ansova to other colleagues in the future.”
My best regards,


Thanks, trip has been great.  Very good food and nice people.  I am regretting not doing Saigon. Halong bay I am glad I did [because of its beauty]. We did some true street food tonight after poking the guide for true local street food and it was amazing. We are impressing the guides with our ability to eat spice (and general appetite). Thanks for setting up a great itinerary.  
Thanks for being so awesome!!!

“We are having the trip of a lifetime and could not be happier with Huong. He is so knowledgeable, enthusiastic, adaptable, thoughtful, and personable. Truly, he is one of the best guides I have ever experienced. An extremely special thank you to you and your team for putting this together. I had an experience of a lifetime with Ansova. I must say that my guide in Luang Prabang was incredible. I was completely blown away by him and the entire day curated by your team. I look forward to sending you detailed feedback once I return from Asia.”

We had a fabulous time and are still reeling from the overall adventure. The Ansova people were truly over the top! Bright, courteous, efficient and very hospitable. We grew to love [each] guide and would highly recommend them. We had the perfect mix of sightseeing, history, shopping and relaxation. We loved all the hotels and we were given plenty of good restaurant advice, thanks again for Sugar Palm! The side excursions were really “out of the box” and not something we would have planned on our own. [They] all further enhanced our love for the Vietnamese people in a very intimate way. Cambodia was amazing, and we felt fortunate to have spent time with [our guide] Olivier at Angkor Wat. He was very interesting and knowledgeable, we would have been oblivious to half of what he pointed out to us had we been on our own. We thank you again so much for all your coordination and look forward to our next excursion!

“The trip was amazing!! Our rooms were upgraded in every hotel and we were treated to champagne and treats everywhere we went. The representatives who guided us through the airports were invaluable and took guesswork out of everything. The Vespa tour [in Hanoi] was AWESOME! Probably one of my highlights for Vietnam. The guides were awesome, and they sent us a bunch of pictures they took throughout the trip, a couple of days later. [Bangkok] was a highlight for us both, mostly because of [our guide] Mam, she was INCREDIBLE!! We loved all the places she took us. We especially loved the street food tour in Chinatown.”

Ms. Millman

“Our guides were the very best […] there are 100’s of stairs involved in the visiting of temples, pagodas and monasteries […] and there are no handrails anywhere – period. All guides offered a hand whenever one was needed – without exception. The guides were all extremely knowledgeable and made sight-seeing make sense. Instead of standing looking at the next ruin or temple and thinking “I wish I knew more” each guide added the level of expertise that gave what we were seeing meaning.
Our cruise down the Mekong on the Amadara was an interesting break from touring so privately. We had become accustomed to (and spoiled by) the delightful personal service that Ansova was providing.
So, there you have it – a thumbnail sketch of the success of this trip. We loved it – definitely, one for the books! It was a great adventure and your assistance and expertise were invaluable.”
With affection,

LeRoy and Vikki Diotte

“[We] were upgraded to a suite and the hotel moved all [our] stuff. The cooking class was unbelievable. The people were so nice and [we] loved it, the place was very cool. Thanks for making this a great trip!”

Dear Peter:

Greetings from New York City.
We arrived, safe and sound…
We smile and laugh when we think of Vietnam. We certainly had one of the most remarkable trips of our lives and we value the time we shared together. Now we just have to keep an open channel.
