Vietnam culture and beach holiday
It was excellent. I would definitely recommend this sort of tour for a first visit. We had never had a guide or arranged tour before so it really made the difference knowing that tours had been prepaid and pick ups and cars had been pre arranged. (more)Val Bodington
Both the visit to the Cu Chi tunnels and the day on the Mekong Delta was the most memorable. (more)Emma Miller
From US $1284 excluding flights
Laos and Vietnam holiday, Luang Prabang to Hanoi
Memorable parts? Visiting a cave which had become a shrine due to a tragedy that happened there during the Vietnam war.....the place was thickly populated by the most incredible butterflies it was a deeply spiritual and moving experience. Our guides were lovely kind thoughtful and patient Tips? Don't bring too many clothes you won't need them and laundry can be done easily and cheaply in Laos and Vietnam Local benefits? Yes we were pretty Eco and ate with locals everywhere... (more)simone plaut
From £2280 - £2480 including UK flights
Indochina overland holiday
Memorable parts? An excellent way to see Indochina - airport to airport guided tour - with everything taken care of - excursions, hotels, transport, etc. The people are amazingly friendly, the scenery is superb, all very refreshing. Halong Bay and Angkor Wat stick out just a bit above the rest of the places we visited. Tips? There is no hard walking or trekking - but you still need to be reasonably fit to climb mountainside steps, and squat walk thru small tunnels - if you want. Local... (more)Vinod Mehta
From £2999 - £3439 including UK flights
Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh holiday in Vietnam
A most enjoyable time...a really memorable trip. (more)Mary Rae
Very good - I truly enjoyed the whole experience. The whole trip was great but the most memorable part was probably the motorbike tour through the countryside around Hue. (more)Gail Morris
the most memorable part was the cruise in Halong Bay and the Mekong River outing (more)Chandra Kant Sharma
From £553 - £750 excluding flights
Indochina small group overland tour
Memorable parts? Gosh! All of it! It was an amazing 40 day adventure but I particularly enjoyed watching the sun rise over Angkor Wat in Cambodia, kayaking around Halong Bay in Vietnam and the stunning scenery of Laos and in particular watching the sun set over the Mekong River in Luang Prabang. Tips? We were constantly on the move, which was very exhausting and at the end of the Vietnam trip (the 40 day Indochina adventure was actually 3 separate tours which I did not realise and... (more)Lucy Charlotte Brand
From £1815 - £1925 excluding flights
Vietnam to Thailand, small group holiday
Memorable parts? All the tour has been exciting. Tips? Arrival in Saigon without any city visit is not so useful and could be avoided. Local benefits? Absolutely yes. Overall rating? (more)Terry Basilico
From £489 - £660 excluding flights
Reunification Express holiday, Vietnam
The most memorable part was the motorbike tour in Hue & overnight boat trip on Halong Bay. We stayed in lovely owned hotels & ate in family owned restaurants. (more)Samantha Rogers

From £736 - £975 excluding flights
Indochina tours
Very good...Walking the Fitzroy track in Patagonia was the most memorable part (more)Carol McKearney
Laos is beautiful and the people are gentle and kind. Vietnam is crazy, hectic with stunning beaches and Halong Bay, Wow...Excellent. (more)Anne Honeyball
was one of the best trips I have ever done. We experienced all kinds of travel, visited many amazing sites and learned more in one month than most people do in a lifetime. The most memorable part was the homestay where we experienced what life really is for the locals who were so welcoming and friendly to us. (more)Sarah Beddow
From £1696 - £2350 excluding flights
Vietnam holidays, tailor made
Halong Bay and Siem Reap were amazing, but there were lots of other lovely places and people. (more)Yvonne Chapman
It was excellent- thank you for providing us with the introduction....The whole holiday was really good and I don't think one particular part was more memorable than all of them. (more)Carol Norman
I would recommed this trip very highly. The best part was the vietnamese people. (more)Bernard Butt
From US $2183 excluding flights
Vietnam holiday
The best parts were the old town and cycling in Hoi An. (more)Fiona Christie
The most memorable part was the home stay on the Meakon delta and the National Park. I also love kayaking and seeing the wild monkeys in Haylon bay. (more)Juliet Price
Cambodia - the temples of Angkor Wat are a true gem; Phnom Penh and its museums as well as the recent Cambodian history were heart breaking but very educational. (more)martina kocjan
From £914 - £1195 excluding flights
Off the beaten track holiday in Vietnam
Excellent in all ways. Ms. Thanh Ha of the operator’s Saigon office provided detailed information and reminders, and she met us in Saigon to make sure everything was as we hoped. (more)Sandy Snyder
Eating and experiencing the beauty of Vietnam was the most memorable part...Brilliant. Wouldn't hesitate in doing it again and recommending to anyone wanting some happy healing holiday happenings. (more)Anita Lowe
From US $3008 excluding flights
Diving & mountain biking in Vietnam
The food - absolutely delicious everywhere we went, even the meal cooked by our guide in a Tay minority homestead where we ate with the family and drank rice wine welcome shots. Phu Quoc Mango Bay resort - peaceful, eco-friendly, lots of options. The scenery - highlights, Mount Fan Xi Pan from Sapa and Halong Bay. (more)Diana Orton
We had a fantastic time and would recommend this operator to anyone travelling to Vietnam. The management of the tour was excellent. We loved Vietnam, from the food to the people to the places. There is much to see and do and we felt that our tour covered many of the beautiful areas in Vietnam. (more)Annalet van Deventer
Surviving the throng of motorbikes in the streets of Hanoi was the most memorable part. (more)Rachel Crossley
From US $2168 excluding flights
Cycling holiday to Indochina and Angkor Wat
Excellent - thank you very much. All provisions and services were provided by locals and the relationship the guide had with them was obviously due to good relationships in place. (more)Ian MacEachern
I really enjoyed the experince. Getting to see three countries off the beaten track was an experience and we were all the time active on the holiday (more)Tom Mc Conalogue

Ho Chi Minh City to Phnom Penh holiday
Wonderful - important to note that the head of the company in Vietnam that arranged the tour rang to check in on me in Saigon which made me feel like a valued customer (more)Sara Geale
Amazing, simply perfect. And their integrity with money issues was outstanding. Which is quite rare with private package tour operators I later found. (more)Maha Almojel
The Jungle Temple in Siem Reap was the most memorable part of the holiday. (more)Steve Dalby
From £530 including domestic flights only
Vietnam heritage tour
Very good - not the best holiday ever, but a great break with some very funny moments. (more)Christian Barkei
We had a wonderful holiday, we were able to gain a good sense of the country and some awareness of the lives of ordinary Vietnamese people. (more)Janet Baseley
Most memorable: the superb efficiency with which every little component of the tour was organized. Everything ran like clockwork. Most ‘exciting’: simply waking to such wonderful views over the rivers in Hue, Hoi An and Saigon. (more)Paul Hudson
From US $1502 excluding flights
Halong Bay cruises, 2 day cruise, Vietnam
Memorable parts? Sitting on the deck of the Red Dragon 1 in the morning and watching the islands in Halong Bay go by. Tips? Do not select a second-rate company for seeing Halong Bay. I talked to other people whose experience was not as wonderful as mine because they missed the fishing village and being on a beautifully finished and equipped junk. Local benefits? Definitely. I saw the projects that were benefited, including the picking up of garbage in Halong Bay. Overall... (more)Sarah Schmidt
From US $190 excluding flights
Vietnam cycling & culture holiday
Memorable parts? We would take breaks along the road by going into people's homes and sitting down with them, eating some fruit, (sometimes using their bathrooms!) and talking with them with our guide. I have never before traveled and interacted with local people so much as on this trip. Tips? Some of the recommended supplies they listed weren't needed, such as a camelbak. Also, we stayed in pretty surprisingly nice hotels, if you want to try to save some money it might be possible... (more)jason sulkowski
From US $1195 excluding flights
South East Asia tour, Hanoi to Singapore
Snorkelling for the first time in Nha Trang (and second time in Ko Phi Phi!) was fantastic, jungle trekking in both Thailand and Malaysia was awesome...Outstanding - varied, educational and stacks of fun. (more)Matt Williams
There were so many highlights to this holiday which covered so many countries... Staying the night in a hilltribe village in northern Thailand, snorkling on the coral reefs around Ko Phi Phi, 4x4 driving, drinking tea in a tea plantation in the Cameron highlands...exploring great cities like KL and Singapore. Fantastic, but tough going at times! (more)Bridie Brittain
From £2286 excluding flights
Vietnam adventure holiday
Memorable parts? So difficult to choose one thing. We did so many great things. Experiencing the New Year celebrations on the river side in Hoian was probably the most exciting and and enjoyable because of the colour, sounds and energy all rolled into one event. Tips? Travel light. Laundry services are cheap and easy to use. Use insect repellent to stop nasty bites. Get up early to get to sights before the crowds build up. Local benefits? We visited local people for several... (more)Kathryn Heirons
From £1879 - £2399 including UK flights

An excellent holiday. A really wonderful guide who went the extra mile to show us the real Cambodia and give us an interesting and enjoyable trip. (more)Richard Moorhead
From £489 - £650 excluding flights
Mekong Delta cycling tours, 3 days
Memorable parts? The outstanding bike ride from near Dalat to near Mui Ne. Tips? It's HOT in the Mekong Delta in March! I knew it would be and yet I wasn't really prepared for how hot it really would be!! Local benefits? I saw nothing that negatively impacted the environment unnecessarily. We stayed and ate in what appeared to be locally owned establishments. I do wish there was an alternative to the constant use of plastic bottles of water. I'm not sure what the solution... (more)Jayne Bradbury
From US $258 excluding flights
Hanoi to Da Nang tour in Vietnam
Memorable parts? Sitting in a restaurant in Hoi An overlooking the river at night; Trying local dishes at each place we visited. (Try the Hue pancakes!) Walking around Hoi An's old quarter. Visiting the My Son ruins early in the morning to get there ahead of the heat and other tourists. (The itinerary showed that visit as an afternoon trip but the guide suggested we go early in the morning which was a great idea and meant we had it almost to ourselves.) Tips? Take the opportunity... (more)Sue Pidgeon
From £2000 - £2200 including UK flights
Sea kayaking in Halong bay, Vietnam
Memorable parts? Paddling through dark caves to hidden lagoons. We had them to ourselves most of the time. The guide had 14 years experience as a kayak guide and knew the best places, away from the crowds. On the last day, the guide took me to a cave and lagoon he had only recently discovered. I also enjoyed the meals on the boat. The food was fresh and delicious, especially the seafood. The young crew were also a lot of fun. Tips? Don't assume it will be warm. I went in... (more)Susan Pidgeon
From US $1780 excluding flights
Cambodia & Vietnam holiday
I would definitely recommend this tour and intend to do another one with this company....As a single traveller I particularly appreciated the fact that all the other members of the tour were extremely friendly and easy to get on with. (more)Marian Jenkins
Loved cycling in Hoi An and seeing the locals and water buffalo in the fields. The cookery class was hilarious and memorable for all the right reasons. (more)Loretta Ahmed
Most memorable part of the holiday was...everything. (more)Jack Kitchener
From £940 - £1355 excluding flights
Budget tours to Vietnam
Memorable parts? You do so many things on this tour it is hard to choose the most memorable. If there was one experience I remember the most it was the motorbike ride around the city of Hue. We rode through the streets and out into the paddy fields and local villages. It was the best way to see the country and the whole group had a lot of fun. Tips? Just go on and book it! I found getting my visa before travelling a lot easier (rather than visa on arrival) and there are no 'special'... (more)Lindsay Challoner
From £599 excluding flights
Vietnam & Cambodia holiday
Absolutely loved the Sapa region - Mountains & mist and Ian was a fantastic tour leader. Hoi An town was just amazingly beautiful & relaxed. (more)Heather Johnson
It was quite a whirlwind and, although everyone got extremely tired, the memories of Vietnam will mellow like a good wine. (more)Christine Mackenzie
From £2395 - £2990 including domestic flights only
Ho Chi Minh to Hanoi tours in Vietnam
Memorable parts? Much of the holiday was memorable, the madness of Saigon, the beautiful town of Hoi An, exploring Hue and surrounding countryside by motorbike, the wonderful Ha Long Bay, the delicious food......I could go on! Tips? Go with an open mind and you will not be disappointed with the experience of travel & living in Vietnam. If you are after partying and drinking lots every night this is not for you. Local benefits? The tour took the opportunity to engage with... (more)James Bolton
From £617 - £820 excluding flights
Charity cycle rides, Saigon to Angkor Wat
Memorable parts? Cycling through the paddy fields in Vietnam - something few tourists would normally see in Vietnam. Tips? Go for it! Local benefits? Yes - good that larger reusable water containers were used instead of lots of individual bottles. Overall rating? Very well organised & good local guides with excellent knowledge. Hotels were in general of good standard. Already looking for a new challenge to work towards and more countries to experience. (more)Jenny Gordon
From £2441 including UK flights
