A friend and I chose to the do 13 day tour of Northern Vietnam and it was amazing. We chose the 4 star route and our accommodations were more than luxurious. The tour guides were all very funny, nice and knowledgeable! The food was great and the guides took us to lots of places we wouldn’t have thought to go on our own - everything turned out wonderful. The company itself was very helpful at all hours of the day as we needed last minute transportation arranged late in the day and they did everything for us no problem. Would highly recommend this tour company to anyone visiting Vietnam!

What an amazing tour! It was clear that a lot of thought had gone into the planning of the tour - the organisation was excellent and the activities and day to day of the tour really flowed. It really felt like a trip of adventure, discovery and exploration. People on the tour were so friendly. Each family at the home stays were ready to welcome you into their home, sit around the table to feast and share a shot or two of rice wine! Excellent tour, highly recommend.
