Highlights of Vietnam holiday
Memorable parts? The trip down the Mekong Delta and meeting the local people there and at other locations too. The resiliance of the people of Vietnam and the vibrancy and chaotic approach to their outdoor way of life. The amazing food and how they use local and fresh ingredients. The caves in Halong Bay. Tips? The hotels are of good quality and standard, take few clothes you can buy items their cheaply and tailor made if you wish. Taking the boat trip was a commercial experience,...

Vietnam family holiday
Memorable parts? Walking in the hills in North Vetnam, really connected with the people off the tourist trails. Stunning. Tips? Be prepared for simple accommodation and reasonably hard walking. Although not very long walks, about 15km in a day it can get quite hot and hilly. Wish I was fitter. Local benefits? Yes, staying with families and local businesses is very important to the development of the tourist industry. Always ate in small restaurants. Overall rating? Very... (more)Angela Reid

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 £1184 - £1705 excluding flights
Vietnam tailor made holidays
We enjoyed it all - wonderful food, pleasant, well informed guides, new experiences. Hanoi is a beautiful and really buzzing city; we'd love to go back. Mai Chau valley is beautiful and developing fast; Halong is like visiting another planet - so strange, so awe-inspiring. (more)Patricia Stoat
It was a great holiday, and it is very hard to single out one thing. Our trip to the northeast was one of the best bits (I was honoured to be invited to join the other giggling grannies on the floor of the Tay house - if only I was as limber as they are!). (more)Margery Nzerem
From £2980 including UK flights

Vietnam country tour
Memorable parts? So many inspiring parts of the trip. Some are: - Seeing the fishermen and their way of life in Hoi An, as well as the amazing historic town. - Home stay in the Mekong and the cycling around the small pathways + ferry crossing; It got us off the tourist path and into the real Vietnam, which was what we wanted. - Trying the whole variety of food on offer in different restaurants. - Stunning scenery along the coast and over the passes. - The amazing urban scenes in Hanoi and...

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 £1062 - £1420 excluding flights
Cambodia & Vietnam classic tour
Memorable parts? It is hard to be specific as everything was memorable, from the chaotic city of Hanoi to the tranquil waterways of the Mekong. The Killing Fields is a very moving experience and makes you realise how lucky we are in the UK. The local people we met in our accommodation were delightful they made our holiday. Angker Wat was spectacular at sunrise, the serene majesty of Halong Bay. Out itinerary was busy but enjoyable we experienced a fantastic culture unlike anything experienced... (more)John Finneran
From £2000 - £2600 including UK flights

Our guide Hai was fantastic, he had lots of knowledge, had a great sence of humour and looked after us well. He really helped make the holiday as fantastic as it was. (more)Elizabeth Morgan

From £1538 - £1954 including UK flights
Cambodia & Vietnam holiday

Vietnam adventure holiday
It was excellent. Very well organised to ensure we saw the very best of Vietnam (more)Kay Seward
Excellent. It was a busy schedule which made the most of our time in Vietnam. We did so many great things. Experiencing the New Year celebrations on the river side in Hoian was probably the most exciting and enjoyable because of the colour, sounds and energy all rolled into one event. (more)Kathryn Heirons
From £1769 - £2249 including UK flights
Ho Chi Minh to Hanoi tours in Vietnam
Overall my holiday was great, it was a good balance of living and teaching with the locals then being a tourist on the weekend. (more)Kathleen Rigby

Vietnam tailor made holiday, North to South
...our overall experience was amazing! We loved the people and the variety of Vietnamese countryside. We feel that this trip was a quick tour of the country and would love to return to visit areas we did not have time to visit (e.g. the national parks) and revisit areas for longer (e.g. a home stay and trek in Sapa).

Exceptional...The trip to Halong Bay was the most exciting part of the trip. (more)Richard Mcleish
From £2809 including UK 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 £520 - £749 excluding flights
Highlights of Indochina tour
Very good...I appreciated the variety - everything from overnight in a village in Vietnam and being entertained by the locals in that beautiful place, to crawling through Cu Chi tunnels (very dark)to Silk production, making rice paper ... also liked Angkor Wat and associated temples, fascinating.

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. (more)Tamsin Wheeler

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 - £2100 including UK flights
Indochina overland tour, Saigon to Angkor

From £2450 - £2650 including UK flights
Vietnam cultural tour
My family of four and a friend travelled to Vietnam with this operator via Responsible Travel. Our 2-week trip began on 12/17/06. We found the trip to be very well organized. Our tour leader Tim was fun-loving and well versed in leading small groups as well as with Vietnam, in general. Our group, which totalled 14, put Tim to the test as two of the group were clearly inexperienced travellers who felt as though the leader was their personal property. Tim did more than one could expect to satisfy... (more)David Brody
