It is rarely that I recommend anyone or anything, due to the obvious. As a backpacker I had been reluctant to join the Chowdown Vietnam tour in previous years, simply because it was a “tour”. However, I finally did join the tour group Aug-Sept 2014. The inadequacy of the English language prevents me from finding enough and appropriate adjectives to truly describe the awesome experience. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT! It is professionally organised and led by the most experienced tour guide, FearlessMonika Czerveniak. Her passion ensures everyone’s needs are met, that the tour is diverse and interesting. It not only includes the food experience; with all the walking, Monika narrates the local history and knows the streets of Hanoi, HCMC and Hoi An like the back of her hand. We were fortunate to have an exceptional group of people who added to the experience. I thank Monika, Jean-ann and fellow travellers for leaving me with great memories. Go do it!!
