My partner and I booked a private tour with The Terrible Tour Guide, all customized for just two of us. The travel consultant Joey was extremely easy to deal with and quick to respond. We were picked up promptly at our hotel in Ninh Binh by our guide Chi and driver Mr. Bao. Theu are both super professional, friendly and helpful. Hotels in Sapa and Dong Van were of an excellent and comfortable standard. The homestays in Ha Giang and Cao Bang were nice and clean, the hosts also cooked very good traditional Vietnamese foods ( we loved the spring rolls ). All meals at local restaurants ưere good and hygiene. We really enjoyed our time in north Vietnam thanks to the team at TTTG: Joey, Chi and Mr. Bao. We would definitely have no hesitation on highly recommending TTTG we would certainly be happy to travel with them again!
We highly recommend The Terrible Tour Guide for any adventure to Northern Vietnam. After emailing several travel agencies expressing our interest in tailoring a tour for 3 people. Joey by far was the most responsive and the easiest to work with, we exchanged hundred emails . He put together a great itinerary packed as much as possible into 8 days in Vietnam. Our guide (Peter) was excellent.. very funny and informative and seemed to truly enjoy his job. Our driver Duc spoke little English but he was always helpful, his driving skills made us felt save driving through winding roads. All the hotels, homestays were clean with friendly staff. This is the kind of company who want you to have the best trip for your money, the best company Ive ever dealt with. We will be back!
We booked the 3 days private tour to Sapa two-week before we left New Zealand. Our guide Chi was exceptional. He has a wealth of knowledge about the history and culture of Vietnam, a good-fun buddy to be with and spoke English fluently. The hotel recommended for us is very nice, spacious with great view towards the mountain. Breakfast and lunch was good, dinner was okay. Transportation was new and comfortable with experience and patient driver. Overall it was a great experience. Highly recommend this travel agency to anyone.
Our trip in Ha Giang with The Terrible Tour Guide was beyond expectation. As to celebrate our anniversary, we wanted to start with a few days somewhere quiet, avoid major crowded touristy places. Joey quickly came up with few suggestions to choose (with pros and cons). Our first plan was to visit Mu Cang Chai, but when the date is near, we worried about the weather and asked if we could change to Ha Giang instead. Joey quickly called for help and confirmed that the weather was not ideal to trek and allowed us to follow our second option which is Ha Giang. Because all the hotels were booked so we had to pay for the cancellation fee and it was understandable (no cancellation fee for homestay). Glad we did, it was raining the whole week in Mu Cang Chai according to the weather forecast, Joey and Peter (our tour guide) told us the same.
We had amazing 6 days experience with Peter and were our best tour guide weve ever had in Vietnam. Peter was absolute professional with immense knowledge of Vietnam history and culture, and made sure we were comfortable.
Our driver Nhan was very patient, friendly and helpful, we felt so safe driving up one of the dangerous roads in Vietnam, the Ma Py Len pass.
We have never left a review before but after everything Joey, Peter and Nhan did for us, we felt it is guilty not to. Thank you so much and we will definitely recommend our friends to use your service!!!
Our family with 3 teens used The Terrible Guide to book a private trip in Sapa and Mu Can Chai on such a short notice. We were very happy with the service they provided. Joey our advisor was nothing but excellent, his response was always quick and very helpful. Even during the the trip, Joey telephoned us everyday to check on our progress and make sure everything is okay.
During the trip, we had Peter as our guide and he was very knowledgeable and provided us lots of information of the history of Vietnam.
Joey provided us the luxury mini van with comfort seats and safe driving, made the whole journey more pleasure.
Joey even came to our hotel after the trip to take feedback personally and bought us gifts from Vietnam, very thoughtful.
Thank you so much for everything you did Joey. Highly recommend using their services, you won't regret. I would even give them more stars if I could
