Itinerary

Day 1

Hanoi

Saturday. Welcome to Hanoi, perhaps the most graceful, atmospheric and exotic capital city in Asia. Airport to hotel arrival transfer. The remainder of the day offers free time for you to explore the wide tree-lined avenues, beautiful lakes, ancient pagodas and the thriving historic old city, all easily navigated on foot.

For those able to arrive very early today or the day prior, why not get off the beaten track and explore Hanoi with us on our optional Back Streets of Hanoi add-on which explores the quaint districts of Cho Buoi, Hoang Hoa Tham and Vinh Phuc, and also includes an exhilarating local experience - riding pillion, on taxi-motorbikes through a maze of tiny streets and along the shore of beautiful Ho Tay Lake.
Overnight: Hanoi

Day 2

Junk boat cruising, Halong Bay

Hanoi – Halong Bay. After breakfast this morning we leave Hanoi and transfer to the crown in Vietnam's scenic crown - the incredibly beautiful Halong Bay. We'll explore the jade waters studded with karst islands aboard a traditional wooden junk boat and after embarkation there's time for lunch soaking up the views.

This afternoon we visit Trinh Nu Cave, one of the finest caves in Halong Bay, covering an area of 2,000m² with a stunning array of stalactites and stalagmites. There's also the opportunity to go kayaking and enjoy a refreshing swim. Later this evening back on board, watch a Vietnamese cooking demonstration held on the sundeck before settling down for a sumptuous seafood dinner.
Overnight: Halong Bay, Deluxe Junk Boat  |  Breakfast, Lunch, 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 this morning, we explore the beautiful Sung Sot cave (Surprise Grotto), which is 10,000m² and consists of two major chambers which are spectacular and spacious enough to hold thousands of people.

Arriving back into Hanoi mid-afternoon we’ll explore the maze of streets in the French Quarter on cyclo (rickshaws), taking in highlights such as the Opera house and Ly Thai To park. We then swap our wheels for a leisurely walk through ‘36 streets of the old quarter’, named after the numerous guilds that once set up shop on a particular street from silk tailors to traditional medicine shops.

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.
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, whose 21m high tower has become something of a symbol for Hue 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.

In the countryside lies the Royal Tombs of the Nguyen kings and here we’ll view the elaborate mausoleum of Emperor Tu Duc. As the sun sets there is an optional cruise in a long boat along the gentle Perfume River, beautifully illuminated at night.
Overnight: Hue  |  Breakfast, Lunch

Day 5

Delightful Hoi An

Hue - Road of the Ocean Clouds - Hoi An. 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. 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.

The charming, old-world trading port of Hoi An with its cobbled streets, traditional homes and tiny shop houses is a perfect place to lose yourself in a bygone era. Boutique restaurants, hip cafes along the waterfront, delightful craft shops and artisans including some of Asia’s best bespoke tailors (whose services come at a nominal price), all can be found here.

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.

During your stay in Hoi An, we offer a unique optional Hoi An Street Eats add-on, which explores the city’s most popular local haunts. Cruise the city the way the locals do, by vintage Vespa and enjoy lots of tasty Vietnamese Cuisine. Book early with your reservation consultant, as numbers are limited.
Overnight: Hoi An  |  Breakfast

Day 6

Tra Que Village

A bicycle ride into the countryside leads us to Tra Que village. Here, we discover age old farming practices and learn about traditional medicine. It’s a hands-on experience today where we’ll assist with tending the fields and gardens and cooking lunch.
Overnight: Hoi An  |  Breakfast, Lunch

Day 7

Hoi An - at leisure

A free day for you relax or further sightsee. You may wish to take a relaxing rowboat journey along the river or spend the day lazing by the beach or hotel pool. It’s also possible to take an optional excursion to the holiest and most evocative of Vietnam’s Cham sites - My Son, or to Quang Ngai, the site of the My Lai massacre memorial. The massacre was a significant turning point in the Vietnam War and the story is told through photo presentation on a walk through the village.
Overnight: Hoi An  |  Breakfast

Day 8

Cruising the Mekong

Hoi An - Ho Chi Minh City. Early morning flight to Ho Chi Minh City. Drive to the Mekong Delta. Often referred to as the ‘rice bowl’ of Vietnam, the fertile Mekong Delta is famous for its abundant harvests of tropical fruits, flowers and rice, as well as its fantastic views while boating along the canals. Taking our sampan from Cai Be we'll cruise through the maze of waterways watching the hubbub of daily life on the river. Passing colourful trading boats, house boats and children swimming we stop to visit some of the local cottage industries that produce popcorn, coco candies and paper along the way. Lunch is served today in a traditional wooden home on Dong Hoa Hiep Island.
Overnight: Can Tho  |  Breakfast, Lunch

Day 9

Mekong & Ho Chi Minh City

Can Tho - Ho Chi Minh City. Early today we visit the ever lively Cai Rang floating market. Watch as melons, pineapples, fresh greens, sacks of rice and children's toys get tossed from one sampan to another at great heights and speed before driving back to Ho Chi Minh City. Once called the Pearl of the Orient, modern Ho Chi Minh City is a thriving metropolis on the move. Sleek sky scrapers, gourmet restaurants, designer malls and swanky bars and spas are scattered between ancient pagodas, colonial era landmarks and lively street markets. Our walking tour of Ho Chi Minh City includes visits to the Notre Dame Cathedral, Old Post office and the sombering War Remnants Museum. Evening at leisure.
Overnight: Ho Chi Minh City  |  Breakfast

Day 10

Ho Chi Minh City

Monday. Today is free for you to enjoy Ho Chi Minh City before your departure transfer to the airport. Opt for a relaxing foot massage, shop for souvenirs at Ben Thanh Market or visit the grand Independence Palace, with its secret bunker and military command centre beneath.

You could also extend your stay and join us on a day trip to the Cu Chi Tunnels Here you can go underground to explore the vast network of tunnels and hideouts used by Viet Cong guerrilla fighters, see booby traps, trap doors or test your skill with an AK 47 at the firing range.
Breakfast

Cu Chi Tunnels - go underground!

Discover the Cu Chi Tunnels - a vast underground network of tunnels and hideouts used by Viet Cong guerrilla fighters during the 1960’s. Often lead by a relative of a Viet Cong fighter in green fatigues you’ll walk the bush trails discovering grass covered trapdoors, ingenious, yet gruesome booby traps and hidden underwater entrances in rivers. There is also an opportunity to go underground and pop off a few rounds at the firing range. Our Cu Chi Tunnels bolt-on includes return transportation to and from Cu Chi, guided tour and 1 night accommodation in Ho Chi Minh City.

The quality of food & hotel was excellent. I was very surprised. Anh organised bookings at other restaurants for us in addition so that we didn’t have to wander about it if we didn’t want to. Everybody took up the offer. If we asked to do something, he arranged it for us.

We ventured on your Very Vietnam Tour in July 2014 and would like to highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting a real cultural experience of Vietnam. From staying overnight in the Junk at Halong Bay to experiencing the traffic first hand while riding in a rickshaw and who can forget travelling in the sleeper train. It exceeded our expectations as did the tour guide Mr Kien Nguyen. Kien was a great ambassador for his country and brilliant host for our tour group of 19 people. We can honestly say that everyone in the group was impressed at the diligence Kien displayed in taking care of all our needs and wants during the trip while at the same time showing off his wonderful country and giving us a taste of it. His knowledge of the culture and history of Vietnam and enthralling us with other humorous stories during the bus trips will be remembered by us all. Very Vietnam was the first ‘group tour’ we have ventured on and because of the wonderful time we had, we are already making enquiries for the next On The Go Tour.

My wife and I recently had the opportunity to travel with your company to Vietnam, I have travelled extensively overseas before and would like to provide you with feedback. The tour was out of this world! Your guide Kien Nguyen was fantastic! He was informative, passionate about his job. And he gave us such a wonderful insight into his country. I firmly believe that Kien was the success of our tour, he molded us all into one big happy family, and we all had such a lovely time. A person of Kien's calibre is only going to go one way in your organization - and that is - right to the very top!

Hi Kate,

I just wanted to let you know how amazing our recent trip to Vietnam, Cambodia and Singapore was. It was perfect for what we wanted and allowed us to see a lot in a short time. In fact, it was beyond our expectations.

I particularly wanted to let you know about the 'Very Vietnam' tour which we did with On the Go Tours. This tour allowed us to travel from the North to the South of Vietnam in 10 days and showed us the differences between the areas. Whoever put this tour together should be praised because it really was the right amount of time in each place and incorporated the most amazing sights.

In addition, I would like to let you know about our tour guide Mr Kien Nguyen. On our welcome meeting he asked the 19 people in our tour what we wanted to gain fro this trip. Not only did he deliver on this, but he went above and beyond to truly make this a memorable trip for us all; not an easy thing to do when he had an age range of 19-68 years old. He spoke to us about any topic we were interested in, such as weddings, education, life styles, farming and even traditional funeral arrangements, which allowed us a greater insight into life in Vietnam. Moreover, in the evenings, when he wasn't paid to be with us, he would ask if we wanted to go with him to places to eat etc. Most of us were interested and the group went to some brilliant places, which we would never have found without Kien. This was particularly helpful to me as I have food allergies and so I had my own interpreter on hand!

I do not know what On the Go do to promote etc their guides, but Kien was an excellent representative and ambassador for the company and I would be grateful if you could forward my praise of him onto the company. If this is the calibre of their tour guides and tours, I will definitely be recommending On the Go and be booking again very soon for another trip.

Hi there

Myself and my wife and two friends were on your Very Vietnam tour from 26 July to 4 August 2014.

Firstly I would like to compliment you on the excellent tour content and itinerary. It gave us a great overview of the history and culture of your beautiful country.

Secondly I would like to say thanks to our tour guide Kien Nguyen. From start to finish Kien was outstanding. His organisational ability and his relationship with all the members of our group were outstanding. Kien’s knowledge of his subject matter, in general discussion and at all the tourist sites we visited, was excellent. He answered all questions in an open, honest and comprehensive manner and was always approachable no matter what time of day or night. Despite feeling a bit sick at times, Kien was always cheerful and pleasant and he kept the spirits of the tour group at a high level throughout. Most of all was Kien’s clear passion for and enjoyment of the work he does. There is no doubt that having Kien as our guide added hugely to our enjoyment of our tour. In a word, he was an absolute star!!! We would like to nominate him for any awards that your company has for your tour guides.

Thanks again for a great experience and for us giving us Kien as our guide.

Faultless tour with a fantastic guide.

The tour was well paced with a good number of activities and enough time to relax. I have seen all of the highlights of Vietnam. Hung was an insightful, friendly, knowledgeable, organised guide who made the trip as great as it was. He helped us with any problems or queries and thought of all the little things: like calling ahead to ask hotels to turn the air conditioning on, making sure we had enough water and recommending good places to eat.
