Small group adventure - Comfort trips

What is a small group adventure?
It's a great way to travel! Whether you are travelling on your own, with a partner or with friends, a small group trip is a fantastic way to see the world. You'll travel on a fixed itinerary that has been designed to help you discover the best of region. From the known highlights, the hidden gems that you won't find in the guidebooks.

Itineraries run on set departure dates, accompanied every step of the way by an English speaking local group leader. You chose the itinerary and the date that suits you best and you book on.

Why travel on a small group adventure?
Small groups allow us to explore where larger tour groups can't. Our maximum group size of 16 travellers allows us to use local transport to get from A to B, to visit rural villages, spend time with the locals and even stay at a local home overnight, and it allows us to give our travellers genuine, real life experiences of the countries we are visiting; what you'll be doing and how you'll travel depends entirely on your chosen itinerary.

Is an adventure right for me?
The word adventure means something different to everyone, and our range of trips reflects that. Whether you want to explore local markets, visit out of the way temples and meet local people or go on an early morning safari drive searching for the 'big five', we'll have a trip for you. If you are looking for a physical challenge such trekking the Kokoda Track or summiting Kilimanjaro, we can help with that too.

So what can I expect on this trip?
This is one of our Comfort trips, designed for travellers looking for more inclusions in their itinerary, a higher standard of accommodation and more focus on private vehicles over public transport.

Comfort trips are aimed at the adventure traveller who wants to discover the world up close, but with some creature comforts along the way. Dependent on the itinerary, there may still be a night multi-share accommodation (at a homestay for example), but this will be to ensure you don't miss out on a fantastic experience. Camping trips will usually stay in permanent, tented camps or some of the safari options may be lodge based.

You'll stay in predominantly 3 star and above tourist class hotels with private, en suite facilities, although some itineraries will still include the opportunity to stay with a local family, spend a night on an overnight train or camp out somewhere amazing (without the hassle of putting up your own tent!).

You'll find a number of the meals are included (as per your itinerary) and when eating together we'll focus on smaller, often family run restaurants, often eating where the locals eat and ensuring that you are still getting an authentic travel experience.

Can I book my flights with you?
Yes! We are a fully ATOL bonded tour operator meaning that we can book flights from the UK as part of your holiday package. Just ask us for a quote including flights when you make your enquiry.

Responsible tourism: Vietnam adventure holiday

This trip introduces travellers to the wonderful country of Vietnam, taking in all the highlights with the added comfort of superior hotels. In true style there are also plenty of opportunities to interact with the locals and learn about their way of life.

In the southern Mekong Delta region the group stays overnight with a local family. This is a unique experience that allows travellers to experience the local culture first-hand. There's a visit to local cottage industries where travellers can purchase locally made goods, thereby supporting the communities. There is also a visit to a snake farm to learn about this wildlife.

In Hanoi the itinerary includes a performance of the famous Water Puppets. Nearby Halong Bay is also a major highlight with beautiful natural scenery.

The north west highlands allow full appreciation of Vietnam's stunning natural landscape as the group walks through the local countryside. One night is spent in a White Thai village house on stilts - a very special experience that affords observation of the local lifestyle of these minority people.

Reviews of Vietnam adventure holiday

You can trust Responsible Travel reviews because, unlike many other schemes, reviews can ONLY be written by people who we have verified have been on the holidays.

I am reborn! Simply the best holiday I have ever been on
Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
Very enjoyable
It was OK
A bit disappointing really

Reviewed on 02 May 2007 by

Vietnam was amazing. The trip really opened my eyes to a totally different culture. I have been to South East Asia before but I had not seen such poverty as that of Vietnam. Yet, the Vietnamese people were so happy & friendly and such hard workers.

What struck and shocked me the most was the evident effects of war on this country. I was amazed that the Vietnamese people were not in any way bitter and just carried on regardless of the attacks on their country & people. They are extremely hard working people

Highlights of the trip for me were the Cu Chi tunnels - awesome & totally fascinating; the Hoi Ann orphanage - quite disturbing (the deformaties and disabilities were horrific) but SO rewarding. Playing and feeding with the young abled and feeding the disabled children are memories that will stay with me forever. The children took my camera & took pictures which are brilliant & a lasting memory. I will print these and send them to the orphanage. Koto restaurant was brilliant - brilliant concept, great service & delicious food. The Reunification Express was fun & interesting experience - certainly one to tell the grandchildren about!!! Duck embryon? NO THANK YOU!!! Lunch at the monastery and motorbiking around Hue was a massive adventure/memory too.

Van Phuc Lee was a fantastic, patient, kind, carign, considerate and informative guide.

My only criticism is that at times we seemed to follow the tourist trail (stopping off at places to buy local wares along with a million other tourists which we were not, we were backpackers wanting to see the real Vietnam) and Halong Bay which was not as beautiful as we were lead to believe. Ok, the weather was not great but the emerald waters were polluted (by all the other boats & tourists) when I swam off the boat.

Thank you for an amazing experience

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Countryside, Scenery, Weather, Food, Company

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Try and find out the average age of the group - I was disappointed to find that there was only one other person under the age of 55 on the group with me.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


In some ways yes - it was great to use the local guides and the local transport - it really gave you a great feel for the place.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


It was a great holiday. The age of the group was a bit of an upset to be honest and I do think that both myself (32yrs) and my room mate (25 yrs) should have been advised that the rest of the group were all between 55 and 70. It makes a huge difference when you have a group that have more in common. The trip itinerary was great and our guide - Lam - was fab!

Read the operator's response here:

Thanks for your feedback Safann and I'm glad you had a great trip. The age of the group is a tough one, as all our trips are open aged and usually the young and old mix and find they are there for the same reasons. If age is more important for you then I recommend choosing one of our Basix trips as (despite being open aged) they do attract a younger traveller.
