Odyssey Tours provided an excellent tour of Hue and Hoi An, and our tour guide Nguyen Thi Hong Thuy made it exceptional. Thuy was extremely knowledgeable; however, it was her warmth, sense of humor, and the way she took care of us that made the tour unforgettable. Everyday she went the extra mile to make sure our trip was enjoyable and memorable. After spending several days with Thuy, she felt more like family than a tour guide, and we will always be grateful for her generosity.

We booked a private guide to show us the highlights of Hanoi this week. Odyssey provided us with Mr Thong, who gave us excellent service. He was knowledgeable of history of the city, was flexible regarding the schedule for the day, went at a perfect pace for our family and even helped my husband hunt down a particular souvenir that he really wanted to find. Odyssey were really professional during the booking process and I would heartily recommend them to anyone looking to hire a guide to show them this wonderful city.

We had a fantastic trip to Hanoi and Sapa with a great guide Manh and driver Thet. Comfort and safety were highest priority. We had an organised personal tour but were able to follow spontaneous interests as well. Manh knew where all the best shops and markets were. We highly recommend Odssey Tours for personalised tours and friendly helpful guides and drivers. We felt like we're leaving 2 friends behind at the end. Thank you Janet and Roy

We have planned previous trip with Indochina Odyssey Tours, and this one as always, was amazing. Anh was our tour guide for our three days in Ho Chi Minh City and she was beyond wonderful. She was patient, responsive, and rich with information,. She seemed to anticipate our needs (even before we did). One of us had a cold and the next day when she arrived she had a ginger oil she had purchased for us, and yes, it was helpful. I call that surprisingly thoughtful for a tour guide. She related well with each of us, ranging in age from 21 to 71. From our pickup at the airport to our transfer to leave, our three days were so rich and so easy. It was sad to leave, feeling like we were leaving a family member behind. Thank you Anh and thank you Odyssey Tours.
