Thomas Hofer hofertom@bluewin.ch Hello, is a cruise (3days/2nights) available on 13th October, for two adults? We arrive on 13.10.2014 6.45am at saigon airport. At the end of the cruise we like to travel to Phu Quoc. Do you also arrange road transportation (pick up at Saigon airport/ Binh Thuy to Cantho airport or Rach Gia for the boat)? And what is the cost for the whole trip? Kind regards Thomas Hofer
