I loved having the balance between sightseeing and golfing. I have always wanted to tick Vietnam off my bucket list of places to go and to also go on a golf trip – I did both with the one trip.
Jane, Vietnam 2019
Loved the country and the people. The golf courses were fantastic, better than expected… loved the Ba Na Hills golf course – it was a standout. The trip was well planned and the accommodation was great.
Kerry, Vietnam 2019
The tour was amazingly well organised, friendly, flexible, and accommodation was exceptional – 10 out of 10!
Vicki, Vietnam 2018
The trip was a fantastic experience, the people and hosts were terrific. This was our first tour so we had no specific expectations. The golf courses were exceptional, the accommodation throughout was excellent and couldn’t be faulted.
Chris, Vietnam 2018
Vietnam was a lovely destination with very welcoming people. The food was great and I would recommend anyone to visit. The cruise on Halong Bay was definitely one to tick off the bucket list and Hoi An was gorgeous. All of the courses were spectacular.
Joanne, Vietnam 2018
Great trip with a fun group, well balanced between sightseeing and competitive enjoyable golf. We had a very hard working and attentive tour guide who made the maximum effort to make sure we all had a great experience.
