Description of Ho Chi Minh to Hanoi tours in Vietnam

Discover the spirit of Vietnam on a 10-day trip from south to north. Explore bustling Ho Chi Minh City, wander around the ancient trading port of Hoi An and the history-soaked monuments of Hue, finishing your journey in charming Hanoi. Vietnam’s beautiful landscapes, delicious cuisine and famously friendly people are all waiting to be discovered.

This is a fast-paced trip, covering a large area of Vietnam in a short amount of time, and is ideal for anyone eager to experience this vibrant country in an exhilarating burst. There is some driving involved (up to 4 hours at a time), but we use the overnight sleeper train between Hue and Hanoi, and fly from Ho Chi Minh City to Danang, to maximise your time in each destination. The rest of the travel is by boat, private bus, private vehicle and taxi.

Spend a day on the winding waterways of the Mekong Delta, the lifeblood and rice bowl of Southeast Asia, and tour Hue on the back of a motorbike. Enjoy a walking tour of Hoi An, a unique town influenced over the years by Europe, China and Vietnam, a boat trip on the Perfume River and then spend the night on one of the iconic junk-style boats that cruise between the limestone peaks of Halong Bay. End the trip with a memorable farewell dinner at KOTO restaurant, which serves delicious meals and supports underprivileged kids at the same time.

Small group adventure

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 a classic style of small group adventure. You'll find your trip combines a good mix of included activities and free time, with some meals included as per your itinerary. We don't want you to feel chaperoned, it's your holiday not ours. Your group leader will be on hand to assist with organising anything you might wish to do in your free time, but how you spend it is up to you. Anything listed as included in your itinerary will be included in trip price; whereas anything listed as optional will be at an additional cost should you wish to take part.

These trips are great value, including things that you would struggle to organise independently, such as a night at a homestay in a remote village, or local guides around a remote place of interest. Transport will be a combination of private vehicle and public transport, whichever is the most appropriate for the route we are travelling; this might include train, plane, camel, tuk tuk, bicycle, boat…

On a majority of these trips you'll stay in 2-3 star accommodation, locally owned and reflective of the region you are travelling through. All solo travellers will be automatically roomed on a twin share basis with another group member of the same sex, unless you opt to pay for your own room at time of booking. There are no compulsory single supplements for solo travellers willing to share. Single rooms aren't available on camping trips, and you will be expected to help out with camp tasks such as setting up and breaking down your camp.

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

Responsible tourism: Ho Chi Minh to Hanoi tours in Vietnam

Each traveller on this trip is given a gift of a Responsible Traveller cloth bag made by disadvantaged children from Central Vietnam. This bag is designed to combat the increasingly prevalent problem of plastic bag pollution disrupting the various marine and land habitats of Vietnam.

Your group leader and the local guides we use along the way will help to break down barriers in your interactions with local people. In addition, we travel by some local transport to facilitate and encourage interaction with the local population. In the Mekong Delta, we visit a local garden restaurant, in the heart of the Delta, where you can sample some of the regional specialities such as the famous elephant ear fish. We board small rowing boats, sampans, and paddle through the many mangrove tributaries to visit small villages and meet with the friendly locals.

Your leader will explain the range of projects we support in Vietnam, and in Hanoi, we visit one of these projects - KOTO, a restaurant dedicated to training street kids and disadvantaged youth in skills for the hospitality industry. At the end of our journey, travellers may donate any unwanted clothing, medicine and bandages, which are distributed to appropriate local charities.

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


First day of teaching and getting to know the other volunteers

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


Ask questions and get information from volunteers that have been there longer than you

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


I'm hoping the children benefited from hearing English from a native speaker and my experience and teaching strategies. The local community benefited from me spending money including shops and the family that started the school.

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


Overall my holiday was great, it was a good balance of living and teaching with the locals then being a tourist on the weekend and visiting Siem Reap.

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


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!

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


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.

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


The tour took the opportunity to engage with tourist services offered by local people thus ensuring that the locals benefited from the tourist boom in the country. From an environmental perspective I think the impacts could be minimised more than they were but this comes at a price which may place a basic style trip out of price for many a traveller.

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


Very satisfied with the whole package! While I went with a basic style holiday - my expectation was surpassed on many accounts. Even the Vietnamese overnight trains were an experience not to be missed. All in all a good way to get a good taste of Vietnam but disappointed we did not get to Sapa. Next time maybe?
