Description of Vietnam heritage tour

This nine day Vietnam heritage tour focusses on the north and centre of the country, visiting important historical and cultural sites. You’ll begin by exploring Hanoi, spend a night on a traditional junk in Ha Long Bay, and then visit Hue, Hoi An and the My Son Sanctuary. Enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides help put everything into context in each location and wonderful food is guaranteed. You’ll also be able to meet and chat with local people in each city and village you visit, from artists in Hanoi to the owner of one of Hue’s ‘garden houses’, who will cook and serve some classic Hue cuisine for you.

This is a suggested itinerary, and it can be tailored precisely to suit your interests. The tour can easily be extended to include southern Vietnam or Laos and Cambodia.

It was all excellent - we visited Hanoi, Halong Bay, Sapa, Hue and Hoi-An. All 3 guides really knew their stuff and really enhanced the holiday Read full review

We had a wonderful time and felt that we accomplished what we set out to do, which was to give our 14 year old daughter a taste of the sites, history and culture of the country in which she was born. Read full review

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 and people

We have built strong links with local communities, craftspeople, artists, singers and musicians who are maintaining threatened traditions. We offer visitors an opportunity to meet them, thereby valuing their activities and thus helping towards their survival. For example, you'll contribute to sustaining traditional calligraphy, an art form under threat of extinction.

You'll also meet local people and enjoy a meal in a 'garden house' in Hue. On this tour, you'll visit a pagoda in Hue where a community of Buddhist nuns care for around 200 orphans from babies to young adults.

Of course, you are under no obligation to assist, but donations and suitable gifts are always welcomed as the orphanage has no other external source of income.

Wherever possible, we contract local indigenous suppliers and assist them to improve the quality of their services.

By booking this tour, you'll be helping us to support Vietnamese service providers, artists and performers, small businesses, boat owners and other poor people in communities throughout Vietnam.

We use local freelance guides with wide experience and knowledge of cultural traditions who can interpret the cultural heritage of the people in the places visited. You'll have about two different guides from various provinces of Vietnam.
