Vietnam Tours

Vietnam tours really are overflowing with natural beauty. Take Pongua Waterfall. This magnificent waterfall is located in mountain ranges more than 50 kilometres from Dalat. But, you’ll hear it long before you reach it. The 40 metre-high waterfall flows down onto a big lake, bellowing out a great noise and echo.

See the wonders of Vietnam

Another must-see sight is Son Doong or the Infinite Cave - the world’s largest cave with its own flowing river and its own forest. It’s like an underground world Stephen Spielberg created, but, it’s very real and very awesome. You won’t find it on Google maps though, as this giant cave is covered by jungle. Look into Vietnam tours that cover this awesome destination to get there.

And you can’t miss seeing the World Heritage-listed Halong Bay. In fact, book a Halong Bay tour to fully experience what the Vietnamese consider a wonder of the world. Halong Bay contains over 3,000 incredible limestone islands rising from the Gulf of Tonkin. Your Halong Bay tour will take in this tranquil bay and its magical grottos and caves including Dau Go, a massive cavern with stalactites and stalagmites that resemble animals.

If you want a city buzz, head to Ho Chi Minh City. It’s modern and bustling, but with countless links to the past including shrines and temples. You should definitely take a cruise along the Saigon. Boats really are the best way to tour Vietnam, and don’t forget the Mekong Delta and the floating markets!

There are also heaps of Vietnam cycling tours, which include equipment hire. Or maybe a motorbike’s more your thing? Well, you’re not alone. Motorbikes are the preferred mode of transport for locals and a super-cool way to tour around Vietnam. Nervous about Vietnamese traffic? There’s safety in numbers in a Vietnam motorcycle tour.

    The Perfume River doesn't smell that great. Your Dragon Boat doesn't breathe fire. And the Forbidden Purple City isn't purple. These things happen.

    HIGHLIGHTS: Hanoi - Hue - Hoi An - Nha Trang - Ho Chi Minh City

    Surviving the overnight sleeper train:
    - Make nice with the locals. Offer them a Pringle and they'll probably share their entire homemade banquet
    - Break out the noise-cancelling headphones because there's bound to be some snorers onboard
    - Know at least one card game you can teach your new mates

    Day 1-2: Hanoi
    No, you're not seeing things. The hundreds of Vietnamese moving in slow motion on Hoan Kiem Lake are just doing tai chi. Bring back a one-off souvenir from the propaganda shop on Hang Bac.

    Day 3: Hue
    The Perfume River doesn't smell that great. Your Dragon Boat doesn't breathe fire. And the Forbidden Purple City isn't purple. These things happen. Mount local 'shopping' bikes and cycle down to the riverside. Place the bikes onboard a 'Dragon Boat', and enjoy a cruise up the Perfume River to visit the Thien Mu pagoda. Choose to either cycle back into town from here, approximately 8km, or staying on the boat to head back down river to the Citadel. Spend a couple of hours exploring Hue's massive walled citadel and the Forbidden Purple Palace enclosed within. Perhaps cycle out to one of the Royal tombs such as the tomb of Emperor Tu Duc, one of the best remaining examples of its kind.

    Day 4-6: Hoi An - Nha Trang
    Keep working on your bum groove during the long drive to Hoi An. If you've been wearing the same shirt every day, why not hit one of the same-day tailors and get yourself something new. If not for yourself, then for the people in your group who have to stare at you every day. Take a walking tour of Hoi An. Enjoy free time - there's such a broad choice of things to see and do, and they can all be experienced without difficulty. Perhaps rent bicycles and set off to explore the surrounding countryside, take a boat trip on the river, relax on the nearby beach, enjoy the cuisine on offer at some of the town's numerous cheap cafes or have some clothes made up. Why not venture further afield to Vietnam's world famous 'China Beach' and the adjacent Marble Mountains. An optional visit to the Kingdom of Champa, the ancient ruins at My Son, can be completed in half a day. Leave Hoi An and take the day train to Nha Trang.

    Day 7-8: Nha Trang
    Two full days to catch some rays, swim, snorkel and pig out on freshly caught seafood. Then it's back on the Reunification Express for one last ride. Enjoy plenty of time to worship the sun during two full days in Nha Trang. Head out onto the water for a day to cruise around the islands. Spend stacks of time swimming and snorkelling. Indulge in a lunchtime feast of freshly caught seafood and other delights for non-fish eaters. Board the Reunification Express and head towards Ho Chi Minh City.

Spend the last afternoon in Vietnam shopping in the city's main business district, or take a cyclo ride through the busy city streets to Ho Chi Minh City's Chinatown district, Cholon. Spend time exploring amazing Ho Chi Minh City. Trip ends after breakfast on day 11.

    The full time staff members who work at the orphanages in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City are very dedicated but do not have enough time or pairs of hands to give these children the individual attention they need and deserve - by volunteering at one of these orphanages you will be able to help with this.

    You will also be working with children who are mentally and physically impaired, helping them to learn skills that will enable them to become a valued member of society when they get older, and instilling a sense of self worth. This project is ideal for anyone who loves children and is keen to make a difference to the lives of the underprivileged.

    While the children at the projects do have access to education provided by the government, they are usually unable to benefit from it fully due to the many complexities in their lives. The support that our volunteers provide allows the children to improve their English and social skills, which will create more opportunities for them in the future, and enable them to learn about a new culture.

what are people saying about tours?

Having not travelled too much I wasn't sure if a tour would be be my cup of tea. Oh how I was wrong, we had an extremely packed 1 week on the west coast of USA and saw some amazing things including The Grand Canyon and Monument Valley, and the small group was filled with great people, very down to earth and loads of fun. Highly recommended!
