Saw everything worth seeing, I believe. Found the pace a little full on at times, due to the humidity. Now I know where I would like to spend more time in future visits to Vietnam. I felt the guides were excellent, always on time and most helpful. Would have like more leisure time in Hoi An and Saigon. Overall Bunnik are to be commended for a well planned tour.
