Dear Tony

Thank you for your wonderful services we never had before. All members of our group were happy of your perfect travel arrangement in Vietnam and Cambodia. Your local tour guides and chauffeurs did a great job even some of us were demanding and a bit difficult. We can not say more than we will recommend your firm to our close friends if they want to travel to Vietnam in the future.
