Saturday. Welcome to Hanoi! Airport to hotel arrival transfer. Free time to explore.
Overnight: Hanoi

Day 2

Junk boat cruising

Hanoi – Halong Bay. Take a moment to picture in your mind some two thousand rugged karst islands dappled with lush vegetation seeming to float on top of pristine emerald coloured waters and you have the natural wonder that is Halong Bay. This morning a scenic drive will take us to this beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site where we will enjoy a junk boat cruise.

Based on traditional designs, these wonderful vessels combine oriental style with modern luxury. Soak up the panoramic views from the sundeck as the boat gently plies its course, this afternoon we will visit the spectacular Tien Ong Cave which was recently opened to the public in 2010, with its stunning stalagmites and stalactites.

Later this evening back on board, watch a Vietnamese cooking demonstration held on the sundeck before settling down for a sumptuous seafood dinner.

Day 3

Floating villages and cyclo rides

Halong Bay - Hanoi - Hue. Early birds can start the day with a relaxing Tai Chi class on the sundeck or a traditional massage - the perfect way to start the day. Before heading back to port we'll explore by kayak the Floating Village of Cua Van, which is home to generations of fishing families. Here we’ll see the traditional and colourful floating wooden houses and the locals going about their daily lives.

On our arrival back into Hanoi mid-afternoon we'll explore the maze of streets known as the ‘36 streets of the old quarter’, named after the numerous guilds that once set up shop on a particular street from silk tailors to silversmiths. Travelling by cyclo (rickshaw), the quintessential mode of transport in Hanoi, we'll see traditional narrow-front tube houses with the chance to sample some of the local delicacies sold on street stalls from ripe fruits to steaming noodle dishes.

Later this evening there's a chance to freshen up before boarding the train (4 berth sleeper cabin, basic standard) on the ‘Reunification Express’ railway line to Hue. An option to fly from Hanoi to Hue is also available.

Day 4

Imperial Hue

Upon arrival to Hue we embark on a guided sightseeing tour of the 19th-century Nguyen empire capital. We visit the Thien Mu Pagoda, home to the oldest monastery in the city and the citadel. Within the citadel is the Imperial Purple Palace, an exact copy of the Forbidden City in Beijing, with its impressive ramparts, formal moats and imperial palaces, some of which lay in ruin.

After we drive into the countryside to see the elaborate mausoleums of the Nguyen kings. As the sun sets opt for a cruise in a long boat along the gentle Perfume River or enjoy some retail therapy at the ever lively Dong Ba Market, a minute's walk from our hotel.

Road of the Ocean Clouds

Today we take the scenic Hai Van Pass (Road of the Ocean Clouds), which offers magnificent views of beaches to one side and lush hills to the other, to Hoi An.

Compact Hoi An with its cobbled streets, tiny shop houses and laid back restaurants and bars is a perfect place to relax a while. On a short walking tour of the enchanting historical town, we’ll visit the Chua Ong Pagoda, Chinese Assembly Hall, 200-year-old Tam Ky house, former merchants’ homes and the 400 year-old Japanese Covered Bridge.

This was an absolutely amazing experience. An extremely interesting tour of a fascinating country. HIghlights for me were Halong Bay - which is everything you see in the pictures and more; Hoi An and the circus at Siem Reap. The tunnels at CuChi and killing fields at Pnom Penh are sobering - but a must.Hotels were all of a good standard - and some were exceptional!

It was good to have some time where we could stay in one place for a little while. I think that would be my only slight criticism, that sometimes, it felt as though we did not have time to catch our breath before having to move on to somewhere else - or not having long enough to unwind when we checked in to a new hotel. Not sure whether some of the excursions could have been reduced a little - occasionally one less temple perhaps? But it was fascinating all the same. Nguyen or "Win" as we knew him was just a lovely, lovely guide who was with us for the whole of the Vietnam part of the trip. An exceptional guide - Win just had the edge compared to the other 2 guides we had in Cambodia. HIs sense of humour, knowledge and easy ability to just connect and make everyone feel comfortable - his attention to detail - all outstanding. Thank you Win!!! You were a big part of making the tour special for everyone.

The whole tour was incredible, but particularly Vietnam and this was purely because of the exceptional attention to detail that was provided by our outstanding tour guide Nguyen. He was always asking after our welfare throughout, caring in particular for my partner who has a major back injury. He called all fourteen of us 'his family' for the whole trip, and his knowledge of the places we visited was second to none. What was most impressive were the recommendations on restaurants, ATMs, and even where to get the laundry done! He even arranged wake-up calls at each hotel for us which made life so much easier. Educational, pastoral and empathetic to our needs on the trip, I couldn't think of a more valued winner of the 'Tour Guide of the Year' award. Thank you Nguyen, and thank you On The Go. We WILL be booking with you again.

A fantastic trip with great tour guides, especially Nguyen in Vietnam who took the time and effort to make sure that we had a terrific experience by imparting his great knowledge about the sights we went to visit in an interesting way. Also the tips on restaurants, laundry and other information were greatly appreciated and especially his consideration towards our son. All the 3 guides that we had in Vietnam and Cambodia were all well informed about the local history and imparted this with great passion. The cruise on Halong Bay over Christmas Eve was great and they made a special effort to make it a memorable day for us. The only down was the Harmony Hotel in Cambodia which was situated just at the edge of the market where there was a 'stench' of fish which also wafted up to the top open area of the hotel. It gave us a bad impression as soon as we entered. Also the service in this hotel wasn't as good as the others. Other than that ..... well done On The Go Tours and would definitely travel with you again.

What an absolutely awesome trip and we were lucky enough to have a terrific group of people as well. Vietnam was extremely interesting and our guide Nguyen was one of the best guides I have had and at all the places we visited in Vietnam including the beautiful temples, Halong Bay, Hoi An, he was very knowledgeable. We spent Christmas Eve on Halong Bay and Bac Le (entertainment director) on our Bhaya Classic boat made every effort to make it a memorable evening .... and it was. Cambodia was interesting as well where we had two guides who were also both extremely knowledgeable about their two cities. Again all the places we visited were historically of great interest, although sometimes quite sobering because of the history involved. All the 'optional tours' we took were also great value. Well done On the Go Tours.

The tour (Journey to Angkor Wat) was better then I could ever imagine. You see lots of photos and videos online but it can't compare to how it is in real life. Both Vietnam and Cambodia were very good, I liked the different cultural aspects and showing us about the historical side of both of the countries. There were a lot of places which I wish I could have stayed for longer but I thought that the tour was very good for showing us the different places in the amount of time we had. My favourite parts of Vietnam were: Ha Long Bay (with the Kayaking and the entertainment on the cruise ship), the sleeper train is an experience which everyone needs to experience, the Imperial City, Hoi An (was very beautiful). Our tour guide Ken was absolutely incredible, he was so knowledgeable and passionate about his country. Out of all three of the tour guides we had I think that Ken was the best out of all of them - he is a credit to the On the Go Tours team and a valuable tour guide. My favourite parts of Cambodia was: Ta Prohmn temple and the Royal palace. The sunrise at Angkor Wat was also very memorable and I caught it on a time lapse on my Go Pro. Both of the tour guides for Cambodia were good but I felt like they rushed us a lot around the sites we went to see and we were split up a couple of times. Overall, I have had a great time, it was my first time doing anything like this and so far away. I have made some great friends and memories whilst being over there and I would like to visit a few places in both countries in years to come. Thank you On the Go Tours!

It was absolutely amazing and have had the best time ever! The only thing I didn’t like was in Cambodia I think we should have had more time to look around the temples...perhaps it was due to the time we had/length of stsy so I can only suggest for future to make the time in Cambodia 7 days as opposed to 5 because there is a lot more to see than what is just in the itinerary and also the temples need more time to take it all in etc etc.
