Hello there, we are looking at booking this tour north east vietnam-5 days departing Hanoi on 02nd September for 3x adults and one x child who is 12years old. Can we have a variation quote for adding in a night on a junk ship at Halong bay . We would like to do this on the first night as this seems a better way with your itinerary.

We don't want an expensive 5 star ship but something more in between. One adult will need a room of his own on this trip including the boat night, the other room we will need our daughter in with us.

Can you please send me a variation and quote-thank you!

We are interested in the 5 day northeast tour.
We would be a group of 4 adults and one 16 month old baby.
We have travelled in Vietnam on 3 previous occasions and have covered the northeast.
We noticed that the tour begins and finishes in Hanoi. We would be looking to finish our tour in Sapa and spending a couple days there also.
Could you please forward me some ideas. We are looking to travel approximately from April 12th.
Regards Sue
