We were very happy With Dong and Narelle. Not only for the warm welcome and super Sapa and Ha long bay trip, but also for the Nice Hibiscus hotel were we slept well and could leave our luggage during the trips, for the many tips we received , the toilet paper and water bottles, the tickets for the rest of our journey and the Laughs we shared. We can recommend Dong As the Best and nicest Travel agent in Hanoi!
