Vietnam tour reviews

Scoring an average traveller rating of 4.84 out of 5 based on 99 recent reviews — See All Vietnam Reviews

I just wanted to express how lucky 'On the Go Tours' are to have Hung Do as a guide - Hung was fabulous - his English was excellent, he had a fantastic and relevant knowledge of all of the areas we visited, he took time out to get to know the group and very quickly learnt our names, a bit about ourselves and engaged fantastically with the group. Hung also shared personal details / family history and stories with us about how the past history of Vietnam had affected his family and where they where in their lives presently - this made the experience more 'real' and felt like we understood more about Vietnam, rather than just a guided history tour. I wish we could have taken him to Cambodia as he felt part of the group and we were very sad to lose him. The tour was excellent - I wouldn't change a thing, just more Hung !!! ”  

Christine & Stewart Rowlinson • Submitted 16 Nov 2016

I have fallen in love with Vietnam from North to South, I am sure I will return many more times. What Hung showed us I am sure was the tip of the iceberg. Hung was a very knowledgable tour guide and this really made for a great tour. The group was an ideal size and we all got on well together ”  

Gillian Rosman • Submitted 15 Nov 2016

Sy was very good at judging the group and running the tour at a pace to suit all. Neena was such a smiley, happy and positive person and had such a difficult part of Cambodia to show us, he did an amazing job. Vannak ran a great tour, fab sense of humour and gelled well with the group - all in all 3 great tour leaders which made it a great tour (not always easy to do with 19 people)”

No visit to Vietnam would be complete without a visit to picturesque Halong Bay, considered one of the natural wonders of the world and a UNESCO World Heritage listed region. A cruise on a traditional Junk boat is the perfect way to explore the many caves and hidden coves with great views of the surrounding dramatic limestone peaks.

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.

Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City)

Officially known as Ho chi Minh City, Saigon is very much a city in transition with a true blend of old-meets-new; with French colonial architecture, impressive sky scrapers, traditional lively markets and boutique designer shops. You’ll also get a fascinating insight into the Vietnam War at Reunification Palace, the Revolutionary & War Remnants Museums.

Sapa

Sapa Hills | Vietnam | Southeast Asia

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 Mekong Delta

View on map
Mekong Delta | Vietnam | Southeast Asia

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.
