Meet Like-Minded Travellers



An unforgettable holiday! We are so happy that we decided to get Luxperia to plan our first vacation in Vietnam. From the first meeting with Mr. Linh, we experienced first class customer service in the way he understood our wishes and hopes for our holiday, he came up with suggestions we hadn’t even thought about and planned our 14 days Southern Vietnam trip.

We were picked up by our driver Mr. Thuong and our guide Ms. Suong - and what a dream team! We felt safe the whole journey with Mr. Thuong behind the wheel and Ms. Suong provided us with the facts, historical events and local tales for every city we visited or drove through. Ms. Suong was very professional, and her positive attitude and energy was the perfect match for our us – by the end of the trip she felt more like a friend because of her great personality. We are so happy that we took our first trip with Ms. Suong, because it gave us experiences, we would never have had if we would have traveled on our own - we especially enjoyed trying all the delicious local food Ms. Suong recommended, and she was of course very helpful whenever we had a language barrier.

All in all, we give Luxperia 5+ stars for the unforgettable travel experience where we could relax the whole time (which is the point of a holiday) Thanks to Mr. Thuong, Ms. Suong and Mr. Linh who all took such good care of us from start to end. We are already very excited for our next trip with Luxperia.
