Pauline and Arthur Frommer

With the debut of Arthur Frommer's book Europe on $5 a Day in 1957, a family business was born—and more importantly, so was a new way of seeing the world. That book remains the best selling travel book of all time, for a simple reason: it showed Americans that they didn't have to spend a lot of money to travel well. That they could put value first, but still have enriching, life-changing cultural experiences.

Today, Arthur Frommer runs the Frommer's Guidebooks, and, with his daughter Pauline Frommer. And when it came time to lead a tour for her readers and radio listeners, Pauline chose to partner with World Spree because of the two companies' shared values.

Inspirational Experiences

Vietnam is a country undergoing seismic changes—in some ways, Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi are among the most contemporary cities on the planet. We'll explore that side of Vietnam, but also look at the traditional face of this society, which comes to vibrant life in its markets, temples, and small lanes. Included on this experience are a food market walking tour, an overnight cruise among the otherworldly karst outcroppings of Halong Bay, and guided tours of the top sights in Hanoi, Hoi An, Hue, and Saigon (aka Ho Chi Minh City).

Top Value

Frommer's chose to work with World Spree because it is unusually adept at creating affordable tours….without cutting corners. That means deluxe hotels on this Vietnam adventure, top tour guides, comfortable transportation and no funny business. World Spree NEVER engages in the shop steering some of its competitors do (that's the practice of spending part of the tour in a shop, so that the company can get a commission on items sold). Instead, World Spree's customers get first class service and accommodation, at a price that's a fraction of what the competition charges.

High Customer Satisfaction

World Spree treats all of its clients like VIPs. That may be why they get so many repeat customers. From the booking process through the tour, they go the extra mile to ensure that the trip is truly a vacation. In the case of this Vietnam tour, that means taking care of the process of getting visas, booking airfares (when requested), and offering foodie cultural add-ons to elevate the experience.
