Huge thank you to Joe and the crew from Funny Travel. This is the third trip I have had these guys organise for me and this was definitely the best. I have wanted to visit Sapa for quite sometime but unfortunately the 13 hour train ride and then the 2 hour bus trip each way made the trip prohibitive. I mentioned this to Joe who offered a brilliant solution that also included a homestay accomodation package and a hiking tour. Joe booked a limousine service that got me from Hanoi to Sapa in 5 hours with a safe and reliable driver and also significantly more comfort than the Vietnamese rail service. The homestay family were very welcoming with a reasonable comprehension of English and treated us like members of their own family. As I mentioned before Funny Travel have previously organised off the beaten track tours of Da Lat and and a wonderful Halong Bay cruise. What seperates these guys from the pack is Joes follow up he is quick on the phone to make sure your trip is running smoothly and sorts out any lost in translation issues with the vendors quickly and efficiently. In short these guys get it right. I look forward to giving Funny Travel more of my Vietnam tour business, every transaction to this point has been value for money and Joe under sells and over delivers usually exceeding your expectations.

One of the nice tours we had in Vietnam. Funny travels took good care of our vegetarian dietary requirements. We had an amazing time there. An overnight trip would certainly have been better. But no where in the Halong bay could we see those ships with the Chinese masts.

We highly recommend Funny Travel! Joe coordinated great and unique tours for my husband and me in north Vietnam. He knew we like to go at our own pace so he planned private and personalized tours for us. He had great ideas—ideas neither my husband nor I would have thought of—so we thoroughly enjoyed everything we did! He, his sister, Vicky, and their staff were very accommodating and professional! They went out of their way to make sure that we were happy and satisfied with the tours they put together for us.

So if you want personalized and professional service backed by experience and a wealth of local knowledge, then, yes, you should give Funny Travel a try!—-Pipa & Mer(USA)

We booked two tour trips with Vicky (the owner), achieving a good price for booking more than one! We chose to skip the crowds and opt for our own guide on both days, couldnt recommend enough! Day 1 was a full day at the Hanoi countryside getting to see the untourist side to the city, eating with the locals and seeing 'real life', rice fields, morning market, ancient buildings, shout out to the guide 'son', who was very hospitable. Day 2 was the nin binh/tam coc tour, comfy transport made the travel out of hanoi a breeze and the knowledge of our guide 'tuk' spot on, giving us not only touristy information but the history of vietnam and what the locals thoughts are various topics, this is the kind of experience you cannot get with a guide book in hand! if you want something different then give these guys a shout!! thanks vicky.
