Recent travel review

We had a wonderful time in Vietnam through Connek Trip. Mr. John arranged the trip from Hanoi airport pick up, hotels, and tour guides…. to Hanoi, North Vietnam “almost” perfectly. Nice and clean hotels, knowledgeable and fun tour guides, safe drivers and very delicious lunch-stop restaurants. The price is very reasonable and saving money if you try to book by yourself separately. We will book through Connek Trip especially with Mr. John again our next coming trip to Vietnam. Thank you for everything.
