After doing lof of research i chose to go to Vietnam trip through trips n tales. It was indeed an unforgettable experience, filled with cherished memories that I will carry with me for a lifetime. I got the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people from different walks of life. The ability of our Trip Leader (Aditi) to facilitate meaningful dialogues and create an environment where everyone felt comfortable sharing their thoughts and experiences was commendable. Thank you Aditi for leading us on this remarkable trip to Vietnam. The beauty of vietnam from the vibrant halong bay to bana hills we saw under your guidance is worth mentioning here. Your passion for travel, dedication to creating meaningful experiences, and warm-hearted nature made this trip truly extraordinary for me. I wish you all the best in your endeavors.

I recently went to Vietnam with TNT, it was great enjoying, refreshing moments for me, made new friends & got to know what others r doing & sharing their past travel experience's. Our trip buddy Ms.Aditi was very cool,kind,supportive & has good experience in managing the trips, luv to travel with her again. Itinerary covered almost the entire Vietnam so no worry, stay was good except Hanoi ,leisure time was more on some days which should i recommend to add more activities otherwise were left to explore on own, the city tour/bus package(was cheap) can be added for each city in the Itinerary. I would luv to recommend TNT if ur solo/first timer to go in group.

I had a fabulous experience on my trip to Vietnam with Trips N Tales. They have very careful curated iternnary which gives you a wholesome experience. We were able to the cover all of the most famous and serene places, it was very well managed, stays were very nice and closer to the main city spots so we could just walk around and explore by ourselves as well. It was a good mix of planned activities and exploration time which I love when going in group trips. I met one of the coolest person, Aditi, also the trip buddy for this trip. She was there at all times and we had so much fun together. Lastly, I was never expecting to meet people who are now such close friends. Each and every person had such unique background and experiences to share and we all kept chatting late night by the beach. Loved the entire trip and experience. Definitely recommend them to everyone. All the best guys! Booking another trip soon.

I went to Bali with TripNTales and it was great experience as I could do lot of activities in this trip. Bali is a beautiful place and they covered most of it. The trip provided good stays at beautiful locations. I wish they remove the Mt. Batur trek because it is very difficult… Atleast it was for me and the view I had expected was not worth the struggle i went thru. I wish they properly manage Nusa Penida as the last ferry is at 3pm and covering all places is not possible. Hence including only 2 places should be enough to capture and live the gorgeous locations. We had to hop to all places and barely got any good time to live the scenic beauty. Food is an issue. In Ubud we got very less options but since gilli islands Nd further the breakfast was buffet hence no complains on that. Lunch and dinner is upto us and better go prepared as per the hotel location as you might lose lot of time searching for the places. Thé activities we covered were cycling, trekking, snorkelling, scuba diving and surfing. Looking back I believe the trip offered us all. The trip is hectic and there’s lot of travelling hence only those should opt for this itenary if they can handle the travel, getting up early, walking, cycling, trekking,etc. Hence not for ppl looking to only lie down or a leisure time! Would definitely recommend for active and enthusiastic travellers!!
