It was a pleasure to have Mr. John Nguyen of Connek Trip organize our private trip to Vietnam. We had the best time at Hanoi, Halong Bay, and Danang. She organized everything and was accessible to help with certain concerns yet after business. He handled everything quickly and professionally. This company is highly recommended. – Mr. Warren
