Hidden Grottoes, Halong Bay

Halong Bay - Hanoi - Hue. Start the day with Tai Chi on the sundeck or a traditional massage. After exploring a lofty grotto hidden beneath towering cliffs we return to Hanoi.

Arriving to Hanoi mid afternoon an hour or so is spent exploring the labyrinth of streets, known as the ‘36 streets of the old quarter’. Each of the narrow lanes are named after various guilds of the city’s artisan who established themselves here centuries ago. On a hair raising cyclo (rickshaw ride) we'll see the old quarter and the delightful Hoan Kiem Lake.

Tonight we board our overnight sleeper train (4 berth sleeper cabin, basic stanard) operating on the ‘Reunification Express’ railway line to Hue.
Overnight: Sleeper Train  |  Breakfast

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.
Overnight: Hue  |  Breakfast, Lunch

Day 5

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. En route we stop for a walk along My Khe beach, a beautiful stretch of coastline which was nicknamed 'China Beach' by the Americans during the war and famously featured in Francis Ford Coppola’s movie ‘Apocalypse Now’.Perhaps enjoy a refreshing swim in the sea before continuing our journey south along the coast 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.

Overnight: Hoi An  |  Breakfast x 2, Lunch x 1

Day 8

Cruising the Mekong

Taking our sampan from Vinh Long we’ll cruise downstream from Cai Be through the maze of waterways watching the hubbub of daily life on the river.

Today the nation’s capital offers a bustling mix of Asia’s past and present, a city quickly taking its place amongst the trendy capitals of the region with superb restaurants and a number of attractions.

Royal Palace, Crimes of Pol Pot

Today we’ll enjoy a full day sightseeing tour of Phnom Penh starting at the National Museum of Fine Arts, a graceful terracotta building of traditional design housing the world’s finest collection of Khmer sculpture. We continue with the Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda, famed for its lavish decorations – the floors are paved with silver tiles and statues of Buddha are encrusted with thousands of diamonds.

We later come face to face with the horrors of the Pol Pot regime as we visit Toul Sleng (Security Prison - S21), a school that was gruesomely transformed into a torture chamber under the Khmer Rouge, and visit the Killing Fields where over 10,000 people were executed.
Overnight: Phnom Penh  |  Breakfast

Siem Reap & Angkor Wat

Phnom Penh – Siem Reap. Hotel check out and transfer to the airport for your included flight to Siem Reap. After time to freshen up we visit the Angkor National Museum - a fascinating archaeological museum dedicated to the collection, preservation and presentation of Angkorian artifacts and Khmer civilisation, with collections mainly dated from Khmer Empire's Angkor period circa 9th to 14th-century.

This afternoon we explore incredible and iconic Angkor Wat, easily the most famous and best-preserved of all the temples within the Angkor complex. It is a massive three-tiered structure crowned by five lotus-like towers rising 65 meters from ground level. Believed to be the largest religious building in the world, Angkor Wat contains thousands of wall carvings and extensive bas-reliefs. Spend the evening at leisure. There are plenty of great bars and restaurants in the compact city centre which is easily navigated on foot.

Angkor Thom & NGO circus project

Early this morning opt to see Angkor Wat bathed in the spectacular golden light of sunrise. Later we drive out to see the well-preserved temples of Banteay Srei, stopping at an exotic butterfly sanctuary along the way. Considered by many to be the art gallery of Angkor with some of the finest stone carvings in the world, Banteay Srei is dedicated to Shiva and contains lavishly decorated libraries and stunning reliefs of divinities. This afternoon we return to the Angkor Temple Complex to explore the ancient city of Angkor Thom which was the last capital of the Great Khmer Empire and is home to the fascinating Bayon Temple, the Baphuon royal enclosure and the Terraces of the Elephants and Leper King. The last temple we visit is Tra Prohm, swallowed by the jungle, vast muscular roots envelop the crumbling towers and walls of the temple whilst the trees’ foliage dapples it in shade.

This evening you're guaranteed to be entertained watching the incredible Phare Cambodian Circus. The Phare NGO circus project trains street kids to become very talented circus artists and the popular show blends circus skills with interpretations of modern life and issues in Cambodian society.
Overnight: Siem Reap  |  Breakfast

Day 14

Ton Le Sap Lake

This morning we drive to Kampong Phluk, a cluster of three villages of stilt house built within the floodplain of Tonle Sap lake about 16 km southeast of Siem Reap.

Hung has provided us all with a very in depth view of Vietnam and it's people. We were encouraged us at every opportunity to step out of our comfort zones and experience the culture. Hung continually provided excellent recommendations on places to see and places to eat and encouraged us to use local laundry places and local spas in order to support the local community rather then the big hotel chains. Hung has a unique personality that has aloud us to see into life in Vietnam through his eyes as a local boy growing up. I especially appreciate his response when we ask questions as he will wait until the whole group was together to answer so we could all share in the information. He got to know us all personally and I hope to have a lifelong friendship with him! We will return to Vietnam because of the incredible experience Hung has given us (he is like a Vietnamese google) he has the answer to every question and he shared information on everything we saw even on the couches driving past local places. Thank you soo much for a trip to remember and for making our honeymoon so special!

The tour was absolutely magnificient - we have recommended you over and over to friends and family. Accommodation was top notch, all transfers were a) on time and b) in quality vehicles. The guides were mostly well spoken, but the one standing out heads and shoulders was Tuan. Well spoken, knowledgeable, always willing to assist and simply a friend away from home, even keeping his cool and not sharing with us that the tour was facing an oncoming typhoon at Halong Bay whilst another storm ravaged the railway line south of Hanoi - so we were all blissfully unaware of potential problems en route and being able to thoroughly enjoy the trip without worries. Only point that was not really in line with the excellence of the rest of the tour was the overnight train - then again that added a touch of adventure. For those going on the tour, bring plenty of wet-wipes and toilet paper along, the toilets on the train are not all that clean. But each and every aspect of the tour, a life highlight that you will remember for many years to come, even for seasoned travellers like ourselves. And try to get Tuan as your guide, he alone makes the world of a difference to the trip.

Thank you On-the-Go Tours, we'll travel with you again.

Really enjoyed the tour. I personally preferred Vietnam to Cambodia and Hung as a tour guide was excellent. In the time we had I think we saw as much as we possibly could. My husband nicknamed your company "On the Run Tours" as we were always on the go. It was very hectic, but we knew it would be like that, as you don't want to make the effort to go all that way and then find you have missed something! Compared with some of the other tour itineraries I have looked at, I am really pleased that we chose to go with you and it did give us a good feel for the countries we visited. The train trip was an experience (not to be repeated)!!!. Three people in our group flew instead, but we were not offered that option. However we might not have taken it had we been offered it. All together exceptional.

Amazing trip! - good mix of sights, culture, history, economics and geography of Vietnam and Cambodia. Excellent itinerary- city, village, river, market, palaces, citadels etc etc...

Hung was an amazing guide- supportive, helpful to all in the group, stayed calm even when a food bug hit more than 60% of the group. Looked out for all in the group, especially any single travellers to ensure they were included. Excellent English and communication skills- great sense of humour. Must be the highest calibre of your guide

Hung was an amazing guide- nothing was too much trouble. Very knowledgable. Good at knowing when to give information, answer questions, tailor visits to our interests. He dealt with a large number of us being unwell after the Halong Bay cruise, and the disturbed night many had on the sleeper train. Hung offered to personally purchase a replacement plug docket for me to save me the trouble of finding a supplier ( and then I paid him).

100% from start to finish. Hung Do was our guide through Vietnam and was the perfect guide to take us through his country. I have been travelling South East Asia for the last couple of months and had several on the go tour guides during my trip. Hung was my favourite by far. He is professional, fun, knowledgeable and passionate about his job.

While the tour itself was organised very well, it was Hung brought who brought the experience to life. He planned each day well, was clear and articulate in what we were doing each day, allowing for flexibility, while sticking to schedule. He offered a great amount of knowledge of his country, the culture, his personal experiences and useful tips as well as great food and shopping recommendations and assistance when we needed anything. For example, our train from Hanoi to Hue was delayed for six hours and he provided regular updates, liaised with train staff and rescheduled our itinerary to ensure we did not miss out on anything. He is a great guide and made the experience amazing from start to finish. I would rate him 10/10 and recommend him for anyone going to visit Vietnam.

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 !!!

We've had a fantastic holiday enjoyed it all so many experiences. The junk boat in halong bay was amazing, the train journey was good all clean bedding (toilets slightly smelly) bike ride in Hoi an to village and cooking lunch was such fun in the rain! Rode a buffalo for a dollar en route!

Found the killing fields very emotional in Cambodia. We loved Siem reap - Angor Wat was stunning went to see the sunrise!

Accommodations were all fantastic apart from phomn hotel lacked good service and advice don't use there atm machine! Market opposite hotel which made it smelly outside.

Thank you so much to all our guides especially Ci in Vietnam. They were all so good at telling us the history giving advice and all the restaurants they recommended were fantastic

A big thank you to Charlie for looking after our booking and putting up with all my correspondence you're a star. Even nicer to meet you and spend a lovely week with such a nice group of people.

The top 10 temples to visit in the Angkor temple complex

Really enjoyed the tour. I personally preferred Vietnam to Cambodia and Hung as a tour guide was excellent. In the time we had I think we saw as much as we possibly could. My husband nicknamed your company "On the Run Tours" as we were always on the go. It was very hectic, but we knew it would be like that, as you don't want to make the effort to go all that way and then find you have missed something! Compared with some of the other tour itineraries I have looked at, I am really pleased that we chose to go with you and it did give us a good feel for the countries we visited. The train trip was an experience (not to be repeated)!!!. Three people in our group flew instead, but we were not offered that option. However we might not have taken it had we been offered it. All together exceptional.
