What an amazing experience! It is hard to put into words! BEFORE Travel was able to deliver a tour that was better than I could ever have imagined or planned on my own. Every detail from the arriving at the airport to swimming in Ha Long Bay is carefully planned and curated. Our tour guide, Canh, was the best part of our trip. He is thoughtful, genuine and always working to make our experience unforgettable. The meals were superb. The accommodations were top notch. From the bustling streets of Hanoi (right in the action of Old Quarter) to the serene landscape of Mai Chau's Eco Lodge, it would be hard to have picked better hotels. Book this trip asap! It will be one of the best decisions of your life!
Sean Vidolin from New York City
I was fortunate enough to experience Vietnam with the help of the BEFORE team. The itinerary is filled with fantastic activities that aren't just fun, but also culturally informative. Our tour guide was as great as they come - I couldn't have imagined the experience without his guidance. The traveling was seamless, the accommodations were all top notch and the food was great. We had an eclectic group of people of different ages and upbringings in our group that added to the experience, and I'm thrilled to be able to leave Vietnam with a group of friends for life.
Kent Nguyen from Los Angeles
My previous visit to Hanoi was not that memorable but on this trip, I had a much more in-depth experience with the people, the culture, and each place I visited thanks to the BEFORE team and the local tour guide. They are attentive and very detail-oriented, and this was clear with each destination we visited. Cat Ba Island and Mai Chau were breathtaking. The food was spectacular. Kayaking and rock climbing in Ha Long Bay were awesome. I strongly recommend BEFORE Travel and their 7N Northern Vietnam Adventure tour.
