Description of Vietnam family holiday

This two week, Vietnam family holiday takes you on an adventure from top to tail, or vice versa, with an array of stunning scenery, cultural sites and delicious regional dishes to keep your family wide eyed and active all holiday long. As this itinerary is possible from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City, or in the opposite direction, you can tailor make your tour to suit your wishes with guided cyclo (bicycle rickshaw) tours around the old districts bound to kick start your holiday as you mean to go on.

If youíre starting in the northern capital of Hanoi then the karst landscapes of Halong Bay are an inevitable next destination with kayaking, swimming and boat tours around limestone caves offering a really exciting and sometimes surreal experience for nature loving families. Northern Vietnam is also renowned for its mountainous jungles where hill tribes live and local villages can be found surrounded by rice terraces and paddy fields. Continue south and the centrally located cities of Hoi An and Hue take you back in time where tailors, tombs and tales of the last emperors add to the enjoyment of days spent exploring nearby stretches of white sandy beaches. A short distance from Ho Chi Minh City is the Mekong Delta which takes you into a watery world of long tail boats, homestays with island communities and bike rides along the industrious riverbanks.

Whichever way you choose to experience Vietnam on this family holiday, a warm welcome from the local people is practically guaranteed as well as a cultural adventure that can be as active, relaxing or as downright exciting as you want it to be.

Accessibility

Overview:
We believe that travel is for everyone. This is a really core principle for us and we passionately believe that where there’s a will there’s a way. We take all ages and all levels of fitness and we do everything possible to ensure that our tours are accessible for everyone, irrespective of physical ability or cognitive conditions. In our experience, there is almost always a way of making a tour suitable for everyone. It’s conceivable that there may be some situations that we can’t accommodate but we haven’t come across them yet!
Limited mobility:
Everything that we do is tailor made so if we have guests with limited mobility, for example, we will tailor the programme to take this into account, and will suggest hotels which will suit. Just let us know what your requirements are and we can talk you through the options
Wheelchair:
In most of our destinations, it is not possible to arrange a special vehicle adapted for wheelchairs, but we are able to arrange a large vehicle which will have ample storage for a wheelchair. Some hotels have wheelchair access; these may be few and far between but we can suggest where these might be possible. Where there is no wheel chair access, but not too many steps, hotel staff are always happy to help with lifting the wheel chair.
Blind/ limited vision:
All of our customers will be travelling as part of a family group therefore we would expect that one of the family would be able to provide necessary assistance to a traveller with limited vision. Information in braille is almost never available but local support can be provided, for example ensuring that porters are available to carry luggage in airports / train stations / hotels so that the travel partner is free to assist the person with limited vision.
Deaf/limited hearing:
As stated above, all of our customers will be travelling as part of a family group therefore we would expect that one of the family would be able to provide necessary assistance to a traveller with limited hearing.
Cognitive conditions:
We have experience in providing appropriate spaces for all travellers, whether this means hotels with access to outdoor space, ground floor rooms, quiet rooms and so on. As all of our customers will be travelling as part of a family group therefore we would expect that one of the family would be also be on hand to provide necessary one on one assistance to a traveller with cognitive conditions as required.
About this Free from food:
If guests have serious dietary issues (or allergies) we will arrange translations into the relevant local language(s) to explain these, and will brief guides to ensure that appropriate food is served.
LGBT:
The staff who are responsible for running our tours will always be LGBT friendly. Many of the destinations in which we operate do not offer equal rights to the LGBT community, and outward displays of affection may be problematic. We will be able to give advice on this on a country by country basis.

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

All of our tours in Vietnam are run in conjunction with a local partner which has been chosen partly because they provide a fantastic service but also because they share our environmental and social goals.
As an example, the more demanding (and longer) treks that we arrange in the north of Vietnam operate with strict environmental guidelines, for example we take all plastic water bottles away from the areas that we pass through rather than leaving them behind to litter host communities. Our trekking guides also ensure that travellers behave in an environmentally responsible manner, for example ensuring that no soap or detergent products are used in local water courses when travellers are refreshing themselves.
Throughout Vietnam we try to use small locally owned hotels that have been built and furnished using local materials.
Our UK office is run as environmentally as possible. The majority of our staff either walk or cycle to work and we operate a primarily paper free environment. We do not produce brochures (which often leads to a lot of waste) but market our tours exclusively on the internet.

People

As mentioned above, our partners in Vietnam have been chosen partly because they share our responsible travel ethos. One of the main issues facing tourism in Vietnam involves the exploitation of some hilltribe communities. We have been working closely with our partners to ensure that all of our visits are carefully controlled to ensure that they bring about a positive rather than negative impact on host communities. As an example we try to 'share out' the hosting experience amongst different families where possible, to ensure that tourist revenue is spread evenly within a village and not just concentrated with one family.

We also advise travellers on how to behave appropriately when travelling to rural villages. This also applies more generally on our trips in Vietnam as our programmes are usually escorted by local guides who are on hand to provide local advice on behaviour, for example to ensure that people take off their shoes when visiting temples and tombs.
