Our Vietnam group tours also include an overnight sleeper train on the Reunification Express from Hanoi to Hue so you also get to experience train travel in Vietnam and perhaps even sample some on-board karaoke - the train attendants take it very seriously! We also offer a selection of optional extras on our trips, most recently adding a flight bolt on to get you quickly from Hanoi to Hue, which gives you extra time and an additional night to explore charming Hanoi further.

A real plus on our trips is the free time we've built in, particularly the free days we include in Hoi An where you can explore the ancient town, relax by the pool or head to the beach for a mini holiday within a holiday. If you are keen to explore more of South East Asia beyond Vietnam, consider one of our longer multi-country group tours that cover the best of neighbouring Cambodia, Thailand and Laos for incredible temples, colourful hill tribes, the temples of Angkor, bustling Bangkok and charming Luang Prabang.

Frequently asked questions about our touring holidays in Vietnam

I hear Halong Bay is Vietnam's star attraction. How will I experience this on your tours?

You're right - Halong Bay is one of Vietnam's best sights and for that reason we include an overnight visit on all our tours that start in Hanoi. You'll explore the UNESCO-listed landscape by way of a traditional wooden junk boat with swim stops, row boat excursions and visits to caves and grottoes. The junk boat is a highlight in itself with meals served on board and a morning Tai Chi class on offer.

What if I want to extend my holiday with a trip to Angkor Wat?

If you want to tack on a side visit to Cambodia to explore the incredible temples of Angkor then our Journey to Angkor Wat itinerary is the perfect tour for you. Not only does it combine the highlights of Vietnam from north to south, it also includes six days in Cambodia with guided sightseeing of Angkor's most popular temples, including the world-famous Angkor Wat.

Do your Vietnam tours include a visit to the Cu Chi tunnels?

Our Vietnam and Cambodia combo tours all include a guided visit to the Cu Chi Tunnels where you can walk the bush trails and crawl sections of the tunnels. For all tours ending in Saigon you can opt for our 2 day Cu Chi Tunnels bolt on.

What sort of transport do you use?

You'll experience a real mix of transportation in Vietnam from deluxe junk boats to overnight sleeper trains, economy class flights to bicycles. Some modes of transport are chosen to ensure our itineraries are as time-efficient as possible while others are fun means of getting from A to B that the locals themselves use regularly. For more information of what to expect on a junk boat and overnight sleeper train, head over to the Top Travel Tips page.

Are there alternatives to the bike ride from Hoi An to Tra Que on these Vietnam trips?

During our time in Hoi An we include a day's excursion to the rural village of Tra Que, travelling there by bike. It's a scenic cycle ride but if you prefer not to travel by bike, you can take a local taxi instead. On every departure around 2-4 travellers will opt for the taxi ride and your tour guide will arrange this for you. You'll meet the rest of the tour group at the village and participate in the activities as planned. The cost of a taxi is around USD $1-2 per person and is by tuk-tuk, a fun way to travel in Vietnam.

What type of accommodation will I be staying in?

Enjoy the comfort and amenities of 4 star hotels on our Vietnam tours. From contemporary city hotels to handsome riverside properties, our accommodation has been selected for their location, service and facilities. You'll spend one night on a deluxe junk boat for a taste of the Orient as you cruise the emerald waters of Halong Bay.

How big are your Vietnam tour groups and what is the age of your travellers?

The average group size is 18 in Vietnam and our tours attract a real variety of ages. You are likely to be travelling with people ranging in age from the 20s to the early 70s. The average age is somewhere around 50 years old.

I want to avoid the monsoon rains. When do you recommend I visit?

When it comes to the rains, it's best to divide Vietnam into three distinct regions - north, central and south. When it's wet in one region it could be dry and sunny in another. However, generally speaking February to April is considered the ideal time to travel across Vietnam as most destinations experience their lowest rainfall at this time of year. And temperatures are also pleasantly warm. For more information consult our best time to visit Vietnam page.

Unbelievable! Enjoyed the tour very much. Our tour guide was amazing, passionate, bubbling with information. ”  

Anna Burger • Submitted 28 May 2017

A very informative tour. Tuan, our tour guide, was very proud of his country and happy to share his knowledge with us. Tuan looked after everyone and made us feel as very special guests in his country.

Every day was filled with new experiences, very enjoyable. ”  

MAUREEN MILLER • Submitted 24 May 2017

This is the first guided tour we have taken with this company so did not have any expectations of what to expect, but to say it was enjoyable would be a gross understatement, we were met by our guide Tran Tuan at the airport and from the first instance his enthusiasm was evident he made you feel like you were very special people not just tourists visiting his country for an experience; Tuan went the distance and then went the extra mile on more than one occasion, To say that Tuan was just a guide is demeaning his wealth of knowledge about his country is just mind blowing he passes on his knowledge, in such a way that you cannot help but be engaged in learning more and ask questions. If I was asked to rate the guides on a scale of 1-10 then I would have to rate Tuan as a 10+ if I had Tuan working for me then I would be very proud because he is a great asset to your tour company. The one regret we have is that we did not take a longer tour but this will be remedied in the future and if it is possible I will request Tuan as our guide.”
