Excellent holiday in all respects - well done Cox & Kings! 10 out of 10. Can thoroughly recommend as a place to visit.Mr Karl Riechers
We cannot fault any part of the holiday, everything ran as smoothly as it could. The accomodation and the tour guide were excellent and we would dearly love to travel with Cox & Kings again. One of the many highlights were the hotels which were stunning, as well as the trip in Ha Long Bay and the attention to detail. Many thanks for the room upgrades and little extras we received in recognition of our wedding anniversary. Mr and Mrs Keith
