AMA WATERWAYS ON MEKONG DELTA
As for the river cruise.. Luxurious accommodations.....our french balcony cabin was beautiful. The AmaLotus is a new ship decked out in beautiful dark woods and modern furnishings. It has a European feel More to it. The service was excellent and the food was a combination of Western and Asian cuisine. They served breakfast and lunch buffets along with a set menu as well....and dinner had a number of entrees to choose from. Truly gourmet dining...delicious. All of the shore excursions were great. Well organized and unique to their culture. Would you believe we had a parade of rickshaws through the vibrant night market of Hanoi...what an experience!!
The Deluxe hotels were conveniently located and offered full service amenities along with spa facilities. The rooms were beautifully appointed.
I can't say enough about this trip. Our guide, Mr Tingh, was incredible. He was with us throughout the entire 16 Days. He took care of everything. He went above and beyond what a tour guide should do. He secured all visas at the Cambodian border, was able to put excess and overweight luggage on the VietNam Airways flight (which has restrictions), filled out all the immigration form for our group between the two countries. He was extremely professional and detailed. Everybody on the tour was in awe of his expertise.
I could go on..there are so may wonderful memories we brought back home.
But I wanted to let you know that Ama Waterways is a wonderful company and you can feel confident that your friends will thank you upon their return. I have talked to other members on the tour and they told me they have travelled with AMA in Europe and have been extremely satisfied with all the arrangements. Less
