Here we’ll see the traditional and colourful floating wooden houses and the locals going about their daily lives.

On our arrival back into Hanoi mid-afternoon we'll explore the maze of streets known as the ‘36 streets of the old quarter’, named after the numerous guilds that once set up shop on a particular street from silk tailors to silversmiths.

This was our first time on an organised tour so we were not sure what to expect.

It turned out to be an excellent experience all round. Firstly Vietnam was beautiful and the people friendly. The tour was designed to give the maximum taste of Vietnam in the available time.

The hotels were excellent and the trips interesting.

All in all an excellent trip, excellent value with the extra bonus of an excellent Guide.

The Vietnam part of the tour was absolutely amazing. Our guide was phenomenal and made the tour both educational and entertaining. Nothing was too much to ask of Hung and he was always making sure everyone was happy and enjoying themselves. The group we had was a mixed bunch but it definitely didn't feel like we were strangers.

I honestly can not praise Hung highly enough. So knowledgeable, kind, caring and such a great character.

The tour itself was so much fun, with the bike ride definitely being a highlight. The hotels were great and so was a majority of the food.

We will definitely be recommending On the Go to our friends and family.

I would like to commend Hung Do for the assistance he gave me after my wallet and two credit cards was stolen in Hanoi on 28 April 2018. Because of the packed schedule I didn't know if I would be able to find a Police Station to report my loss. After my return from Ha Long Bay on 30 April 2018 Hung arranged for Trung (from the office) to meet the bus and take me immediately to the Dong Xuan Police Station to make a Police Report. I would also like to commend Trung for his assistance in dealing with the Police and acting as interpreter. One of my credit card providers wanted the Police Report as proof that the credit card was stolen and used fraudulently. The Police Report was enough proof that the credit card was stolen and have reversed the transactions. Thanks to Hung and Trung I made the Police Report which saved me several thousands of dollars.

Hung is simply the best guide we have had in all our travels to date. We have 2 previous tours with Cosmos in Europe and UK. His knowledge of his country, the history (both recent & ancient) and culture was outstanding as well astonishing. He took of us extremely well. He went the extra mile.

This is the 4th On The Go tour my wife and I have been on. This time we toured through Vietnam and Cambodia, a wonderful experience. We were lucky enough to have a terrific group (aged from 25 - 85) and a great guide, two factors that help make a tour successful. Our Vietnamese guide Kien was an absolute gem, he was knowledgeable, funny, tolerant and very proud of his country, his job is the equivalent of herding cats, something that he achieves with the minimum of fuss. If you get Kien as a guide you will be in great hands. We found Vietnam to be a fascinating country with many different attractions. Cambodia is totally different, we had two different guides, one that picked us up at the border and showed us around Phnom Penh, sharing his personal experiences during the Pol Pot regime, an absolutely fascinating man whose name I have forgotten (sorry) and then another guide Jacky (his nickname) guided us around Siam Reap. I would recommend this tour and if you get the same guides they will ensure you don't miss a thing. This tour was typical of On The Go, it was busy, active and all encompassing and a great time was had by all.

I have been on many tours in my travels but would have to say they my tour of Vietnam with Hung as our guide was without doubt the most pleasurable tour I have done. Whist the country was amazing to see it was Hung who made it such an amazing tour. He always ensured that we as a group and individually were happy with each day's activities. His knowledge and wonderful sense of humour made it a pleasurable experience. On my than one occasion I know Hung went over and above what his role as a tour guide should be. He was an excellent tour guide and an amazing person to get to know. Please thank him on my behalf for the service he provided.

The trip far exceeded my expectations. The places, activities and stops en route are well selected. The sights of both countries are spectacular and their rich history captivating. There is a balanced mix of historical and cultural visits and activities to engage us. The tour certainly left us with a true feel for the countries visited.

In addition to the above the success of the trip was due mostly to the expertise of the tour leaders , in particular Tuan, who is truly an exceptional guide. A warm people person possessing a fount of knowledge and a memory for statistics that is truly impressive, Tuan also has a wonderful sense of humour and never failed to entertain us throughout.

This was our first time on an organised tour so we were not sure what to expect.

It turned out to be an excellent experience all round. Firstly Vietnam was beautiful and the people friendly. The tour was designed to give the maximum taste of Vietnam in the available time.

The hotels were excellent and the trips interesting.

All in all an excellent trip, excellent value with the extra bonus of an excellent Guide.
