February 13, 2016

Dear Ngoc Anh Do,

I am now back in New York City and readjusting to the time differential. But I wanted to take a moment to thank you for providing a wonderful travel experience. From beginning to end, my experience in working with your company has been excellent. Your help in finalizing the itinerary and your responsiveness to all of my questions and inquiries, were always handled in a timely and satisfactory manner. And once we arrived in country, everything (and I emphasize everything) went exceedingly smoothly with no glitches whatsoever. The accommodations were, without exception, inviting and comfortable, exceeding my expectations. The guides were all very helpful and knowledgeable and fun to be with. Upon arriving in a new city, we were always met by our local contact and treated with the utmost respect and kindness.

Your company fulfilled all of our expectations and helped my brother and I have a very enjoyable time in Myanmar. Thank you again and I would not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone who might be planning a trip to Southeast Asia.

Sincerely,
Richard J. Becker
