Vietnam tour reviews

We had a great time on our tour which was extremely well organised from start to finish. We had someone waiting to pick us up at the airport the day before the tour started which was a great welcoming touch. We were all constantly reminded of times throughout the trip so that it ran smoothly and there was no hanging around for dawdlers, like we have experienced on other tours. Our favourite parts of the tour were Back Streets of Hanoi (day tour), the junk boat cruise in Ha Long Bay and all that we did at Hoi An.

We also really enjoyed the opportunity to go on optional tours so you could do something or choose to do your own thing.

I would like to thank on the go tours for their above and beyond service after we finished the tour. We will never forget the kindness Xieu and On the Go Tours provided us at this time.”

Journey to Angkor Wat. For the Vietnam part of this tour the guide was Hung Do.

Vietnam – Halong Bay and Hoi An were best parts. Although I enjoyed the whole trip. Hoi An reminds me of Luang Prabang in Laos.

On the Go Vietnam – there were 20 people (shows how popular it is). Good mix of Australians, Brits, Canadians, Americans. Mix of ages. Hotels were good and were in great locations. It was a very busy trip – hence why it is called on the Go! The guide – Hung Do – was the best guide I have ever had. He was very professional, knew the history, had a good sense of humour and knew when to get serious etc ”

This was our first foray into group tours, so a little apprehension on our part. We had a great time!! Hung was a fabulous guide who made sure the group interacted and were given every opportunity to join in with all activities. Hung's unending good humour, care and attention to details, organisation and wit made certain that we all had a good time. Nothing was too much trouble, and he dealt with every day wearing a big smile! We enjoyed the visits and found the commentary given informative and enjoyable. The recommendations for places to eat were good and appreciated.

All in all, a great holiday and brilliant value for money. Thank you.”

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.
