Vietnam Essentials with Mr. Roberto Ceccatelli

Being contacted from Italy, on the base of our request, they organized for us a 10 day tour in Vietnam: 5 days south and 5 days north. Great guides, a more positive signal for Minh Huyen Nguyen who speak Italian very well and a super photographer who accompanied us to Hanoi and Mai Chau.

This agency is well organized and if you are in need, there will be someone who assist you to change something at the last moment (Lam that speaks very good Italian). Therefore, they give you a free Simcard with free internal calls and a certain amount of Gb to connect to the internet. Transfer to and from the airport and transportation (cars, buses, and boats) are very great. An individual service out of the groups (though we often find ourselves in the same places). The hotel and homestay is all of the really high quality and comfortable. Homestay on the Mekong and out of Hanoi two “paradise”. Agency deals with all the foreigners, especially the Italians. if you are going to visit a country of Indochina remember Amo Vietnam Travel, very helpful in organizing a nice trip without spending too much.
