Description of Family holidays to Vietnam

This family holiday to Vietnam is a tailor made trip, following an itinerary that has been carefully crafted by our local experts to introduce you to not only the spectacular landscapes and history of the country, but also some quiet rural spots where you can experience real Vietnamese life. Such as the rural villages in and around the Mekong Delta.

A wonderful introduction to this stunning and still often traditional Southeast Asian country. Our Vietnam tour, combines many of the countryís essential sites and some of its hidden places with a wide variety of destinations and landscapes. Beginning in Vietnamís elegant capital Hanoi and finishing in bustling, vibrant Saigon our tour includes World Heritage Hue, charming Hoi An, rarely visited Pu Luong National Park, the dramatic scenery of Halong Bay, Ninh Binh Province with its UNESCO, World Heritage, Trang An landscapes and the picturesque Mekong Delta.

Discover the countryís past and present: ruined temples of the Cham Empire, glorious pagodas and royal tombs of the Nguyen Dynasty, the more recent, tragic sites of the Vietnam War and the friendly people, exotic cuisine, fantastic landscapes and exciting cities of Hanoi and Saigon. Itís not all history on this trip, however, with outdoor adventures including boat trips on the Mekong River, cycling around a Mekong Delta island or having beach time in and around Hoi An, a beautiful traditional coastal town which is an adventure in itself.

We have successfully provided tours for families with children from ages 5 to 18 as well as for multigenerational family groups.

Responsible tourism

Family holidays to Vietnam

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Environment

We encourage the sustaining of traditional handicrafts and supporting people with disabilities (in a region where disabilities can utterly preclude gainful employment) by visiting, and encouraging purchases from, the Hong Ngoc Humanity Centre in Sao Do town, near Hanoi. This is an entirely Vietnamese-run NGO, which allows disabled children and young adults to learn vocational skills relating to the manufacture and marketing of handicrafts. More on how we are having a positive impact on Vietnam soon.

Information: Providing suitable, relevant information for our customers; to help them to gain a wider understanding of our style of tourism that focuses on learning, genuine interaction with the local communities, reciprocity and cultural exchange processes. To be aware of the potential impact of tourism on the local society, culture and environment, and to behave and dress appropriately with a respect and appreciation for local customs, mores and traditions and a respect for the ecology of areas visited. Our guides and leaders thus facilitate communication of our values to both travellers and local communities, educating them in sustainable tourism practices

Group sizes: By limiting groups to small sizes we aim to reduce the impact on both local communities and the environment whilst allowing for greater genuine interaction with said communities. It also results in a higher guide/customer ratio thus greater facility for supervision and individual assistance and allows us to use smaller hotels and restaurants and employ the services of more genuinely Ďlocalí operators perhaps not otherwise well equipped for larger groups.

Destinations: We combine the well known tourist sites with many off-the-beaten-track, rarely visited destinations thus diverting tourist revenue and contact with responsible tourism into areas not usually benefiting as well as providing a more authentic view of the region visited.

Local products: As much as possible we aim to employ local personnel, (guides, drivers, agents etc), use local restaurants and smaller privately owned accommodation. Customers are also encouraged to buy and use local products and services as much as possible in order to support and stimulate the local economy.

Instruction: By explaining our methods and the reasons behind them local agents, guides and hotels are encouraged by us to adopt further responsible tourism practices themselves and guides and drivers are provided with additional training in this respect.

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


I loved it all but the travelling was more fun than the relaxing at the end. There was so much to see.

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


Itís tricky being vegan in Vietnam!!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


We found the use of disposable plastic water bottles quite shocking and then at Mui Ne the sea was full of plastic bags and takeaway boxes.

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


Fabulous .

Read the operator's response here:

Thank you for your comments Laura and we are delighted that you had a good holiday with your family in Vietnam. I'm sure being a vegan in a country where the diet is based around fish products is a problem, but hopefully you and the family found enjoyable food whilst you were there!

In terms your comments on question 3, we share your regret that like many bodies of water on the planet, the South China Sea has a rubbish problem. As we all know, there is so little that one resort can do about floating ocean plastics. However, steps are being taken in the region to reduce the reliance on disposable plastic bottles and, as a company, we do ensure that as many hotels as possible on your itinerary offer a water refill service. This enables us to reduce our reliance on single use plastic to bottles of cold water during journeys. Many tourists opt not to use the refill service, as they are uncomfortable with water safety. Where this is the case, we do our best to ensure empty plastics are placed in recycle bins.

Hopefully, you did find other aspects of the holiday were more successful in benefiting local people and reducing environmental impact, this is as important to us as to you.
