Always fast to reply, understanding and actually wanting to help the customers. ...you have been flexible and so understanding that I have been reassured enormously. Personally I feel lucky to have booked this holiday through NITGB so thanks again!

This trip was amazing. If you want to experience a ‘local’ trip and see some stunning parts of northern Vietnam which not many travellers have seen, then this is perfect for you.

Their refund policy was super clear and personally we were convinced and reassured. Due to Covid we had to cancel everything. They within an hour with total reassurance that every cent would come back. It was in our account 24 hours later. There is no doubt that we will book all our future international adventures through NITGB.

Have been to Rome many times and this was completely new, exciting and different! Marco was wonderful and everything we did enhanced our experience for the day!

It is easy to write a good review when a holiday has been enjoyed or when a small issue has been resolved. However, when a serious issue arises then an extremely capable agent is needed to provide support. This happened to me. I knew I was safe in her hands and my trust was not displaced. I would not consider going elsewhere for a holiday booking. I am just grateful that I chose what I consider to be the very best agency available.
