Vietnam Private Tours and FAQ's

Did you know that Sodha Travel offers private and custom tours to Vietnam? Vietnam is a country that honors the past and celebrates the future. Sharing borders with Cambodia, Laos, and China, the topography varies from coastal plains to mountain ranges. The Vietnamese culture has evolved on the basis of the wet rice civilization, and the local lifestyle is closely related to its village and native lands. The diversity of the 54 ethnic groups is apparent in the many traditional and cultural treasures. More popular destinations include Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, Sapa, Da Nang, and the limestone pillars of Ha Long Bay.

Who is Responsible for the Quality of a Trip?

Scenario #1: Jane is visiting a new destination and relies on a travel agency to confirm her hotel and touring services. She arrives at the hotel, checks-in, and finds that her room does not meet her expectations. The agency quoted a 4-star property, but Jane feels it is below average. The view from her window is less than appealing, she can hear her noisy neighbors, and the air-conditioning is faulty. Later in the evening, guest services calls to follow-up and assure her room is comfortable. Jane communicates none of her concerns. Two days later, her travel agent also places a courtesy call. Again, Jane says the trip is wonderful and does not share her negative impressions about the hotel.

Does customized = expensive? Not with Sodha Travel!

In many markets, the word customized is usually an indicator of a product or service being more expensive. Customized furniture. Customized clothes. Customized vehicles. When someone is making the item unique or distinctive, time equals money. So, it does not surprise me that when I encourage clients to customize their itinerary, I am met with hesitation. "Customized? Isn't that more expensive? I don't think that is possible with my budget."
