Biddle from Brisbane Australia – Solo traveller
(Vietnam & Cambodia in depth for 34 days from 9 Nov-12
How are you and the family?
I have survived my first couple of weeks back in Australia. It
is good to be home but I miss your country. I miss the people and excitement, the
motorbikes and chaos, and especially the food. Western food is so boring.
A bowl of pho would be heaven. Also a Hanoi beer.haven’t yet written a review
for you on a travel forum, but I should get time this week. I’ll send you some
photos once I have sorted them. I am interested in coming over to teach English
around August, so we’ll have to talk more about it closer to the date. I have
enrolled in a course that helps develop teaching skills. It will be good to learn
a new skill. I haven’t seen my friend who is travelling to Vietnam in
April, but once I do I’ll let him know your contact details.
I hope all is well. Take care

"Having had Tuan as our guide in Hanoi greatly increased both our enjoyment of and understanding of both Hanoi and the Vietnamese culture. Tuan is an excellent host and guide
and my wife and I remember that part of our trip best in which he had a part. I
would recommend Tuan to anyone visiting Vietnam. He took us to
a great restaurant that we would never have found without him’. On our next
trip we will most definitely use Tuan and his company"
" Thank you for your lovely email that was waiting for us on
our return toAustralia. We had a great trip - enjoyed Vietnam very much (as you know) and enjoyed Cambodia too. Travel Authentic did a great job of organising us and our
hotels - we will have no hesitation in recommending your company to any friends
who might be heading your way in the near future"

“Tuan, you made our trip
enjoyable, hassle free, exciting and comfortable. Your attention to all of us
and the Vietnamese we met was very much appreciated. We recommend your skills
and warmth to anyone travelling in the region.
That is an aussie slang word for hello. I wish to say thank you
for being an informative, considerate and exceptional guide. Your country gave
us some special memories, and your gave us special friendship while on your day
tours. I spoke to Perry when we were waiting in line to get through customs
I will send you some pictures of us on holidays when I organise
I had my first day back at work today and my holiday went very
Bye for now”
& Moira Templar
Just a brief note to say thanks for all your efforts in making
our holiday inVietnam a really enjoyable experience. The trip up to Sapa was
particularly memorable and I very much enjoyed meeting your ghuide's Uncle and
I have included two photos that I really liked particularly the
one of the girls.
We talk about our wonderful trip to Vietnam and our fantastic guide 'Tuan' often, and encourage people to
visit as tell them they will not be sorry, so much culture and wonderful
friendly people - one day I hope we are able to come back and look at other
parts of the country.”
and Desley Webb from : Victoria on March 6, 2011
Lovely to hear from you.
We will have no hesitation in recommending your services to
anyone we know travelling to those destinations and will do so.
You certainly made our trip to Vietnam a memorable one and if you need to use us for any references we
would be very happy to do so. Our time with you was magic and we still think of
it and you often.
Trevor said he would like to go to Laos one day, so perhaps we will see you again one day.
Again all the very best to you and your beautiful family,
It is a pleasure to have dealings with you.
thanks Victoria Robinson Australia

Thank you for wonderful time while we were in Hanoi. Your tour and
your friendship meant a great deal to me and the family. Your tour was
exceptional and I will be more than happy to promote it to the very many people
who will be visiting in Hanoi as part of a New Zealand contingent in March , June and again in August.
