A fabulous tour. All the guides were great, efficient, flexible, knowledgeable and humourous. We built up an excellent relationship with our guide Touan in Vietnam and thought he was the best! ”  

• Submitted 4 Nov 2015

Tuan made us feel welcomed in his country from Day 1. Very knowledgeable with Facts, statistics and the customs throughout Vietnam. At the end of our tour there were no strangers, we all bonded and became a family! This was due to the charm of Tuan who really made my husbands 60th birthday a most rememberable Vietnam holiday!! Good morning Vietnam, I'll be back”

The tour itself was fantastic. The planning of the journey, the time spent in each destination and the transport was great. Both my husband and myself loved every day on the tour and I as a travel agent will continue to sell the product to my clients.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. He was always on time, had a sense of urgency and helped all the clients whenever they required assistance. ”

Highlights of our trips to Vietnam

In the north, sail around the spectacular limestone islets of Halong Bay on board a traditional junk boat or visit Sapa, where you can meet remote hill tribes and trek in the rugged Tonkinese Alps. Relax on a beautiful stretch of beach in enchanting Hoi An, a picturesque riverside town home to over 300 tailors. Or head to the Imperial city of Hue for your fix of grand temples, tombs and palaces. In Vietnam's south, cruise the Mekong and discover its colourful floating markets and remote islands. Gain a fascinating insight into Vietnam’s compelling history at Saigon’s War Remnants Museum and head underground to the Viet Cong’s remarkable Cu Chi tunnels. For a bit of beach time try Nha Trang with its broad stretch of sandy beach and plethora of bars and restaurants, or head to the laidback white sand peninsular of Mui Ne or Con Dao archipelago, an exquisite tropical island retreat.

You’ll also get a fascinating insight into the Vietnam War at Reunification Palace, the Revolutionary & War Remnants Museums.

Lanterns in Hoi An | Vietnam | Southeast Asia
Traditional charm

Hoi An

Another of Vietnam’s UNESCO listed gems, picturesque Hoi An in central Vietnam has beautifully preserved architecture, ancient cobbled streets, art stalls & street markets aplenty and fabulous restaurants. It’s also THE place to have literally anything made from suits & handbags to shoes & glasses. A top day trip is a bicycle ride to the quaint farming village of Tra Que on the outskirts of Hoi An.

Mekong Delta | Vietnam | Southeast Asia
The Rice bowl of Vietnam

The Mekong Delta

With lush rice paddy fields, colourful fruit orchards, enchanting villages and bustling floating markets, the Mekong Delta in south-east Vietnam is one of the world’s greatest river regions. A great way to get around and immerse yourself in the traditional local way of life in the Mekong is aboard a sampan, when you can try your hand at bartering at the floating market in Can Thou.

Hue | Vietnam | Southeast Asia
Paris of the Orient


With a refreshing old world charm and it’s French colonial history very much evident, Hanoi, Vietnam’s capital, is dotted with scenic lakes and leafy boulevards The charming Old Quarter is not be missed and best explored by cyclo where you can sit back and take in all the sights and sounds, stopping off to sample the local street food or try your hand at bargaining in one of the many shops.

Sapa Hills | Vietnam | Southeast Asia
The hill station of


Rapidly becoming one of northern Vietnam’s most popular destinations, Sapa is a former French hill station and home to local ethnic minority groups such as H’mong and Dzao who maintain a very traditional way of life. It’s a great spot for trekking amongst the cascading paddy fields and there’s plenty of picturesque routes to nearby local villages such as Cat Cat, Red Dhoa and Ta Phin.

The tour was excellent. The Halong Bay cruise and the Village visit were absolute highlights. Tuan, our tour guide was amazing. Very knowledgeable, caring and always ready with a joke. He made the trip, would not have been nearly such a great experience without him. ”
