Amazing experience
It was my 3rd tour with Expat,but first time traveling solo and once again,EE did not disappoint. This tour has a little bit of everything. From a beautiful scenic cruise yo Halong Bay, hike to the cave and mountain, it was an experience that I will always remember as I celebrated my birthday onboard. As I always say since that day, It was the best birthday ever! The experience at Cu Chi mountain, War Remnants museum,Genocide Museum and Killing Field was an eye opener for me.
