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.

This morning a scenic drive will take us to this beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site where we will enjoy a junk boat cruise. Based on traditional designs, these wonderful vessels combine oriental style with modern luxury.

    Upon arrival in Hue we will set out on a guided sightseeing tour of this fascinating imperial city. Once the capital of the Nguyen emperors, the last ruling family of Vietnam, UNESCO-listed Hue is full of palaces, pagodas and temples. Two of the main highlights here are the Thien Mu Pagoda, home to the oldest monastery in the city, and the Citadel. Within the walls of the latter is the Imperial Purple Palace - an exact replica of the famed Forbidden City in Beijing, with impressive ramparts, formal moats and imperial palaces, some of which lay in ruin. Outside of the city we will visit the Royal Tombs of the erstwhile Nguyen kings, including the extravagant mausoleums of the two emperors Tu Duc and Khai Dinh. In the evening there will be the chance to opt for a peaceful long boat cruise along the Perfume River as the sun sets and the river banks become illuminated by the dark of nightfall.

    Day 5 Delightful Hoi An
    Today we will travel on to the laidback riverside town of Hoi An, travelling through the picturesque Hai Van Pass - nicknamed the Road of the Ocean Clouds, with beaches on one side and verdant hills on the other. We will break up our journey with a stop at China Beach, an expansive sandy beach made famous by the film 'Apocalypse Now'. Here there will be the chance to opt for a swim in its warm waters before continuing our journey south along the coast. Radiating age-old charm with grand colonial architecture, Hoi An is one of Vietnam's most delightful destinations. The Old Town, recognised as an UNESCO World Heritage Site, is an immaculately preserved example of an Asian trading port with covered bridges, pagodas, temples and merchant houses. The town's beguiling riverside setting adds to the overall picturesque appeal of Hoi An with women in conical hats rowing their wooden vessels downstream and the glow of red lanterns in the evenings reflected on the water's iridescent surface. A short walking tour will take us to a bygone era, with a visit to the Chua Ong Pagoda, Chinese Assembly Hall, a 200-year-old Tam Ky house, former merchants' homes and the 400 year-old Japanese Covered Bridge.

Passing colourful trading boats, house boats and children playing in the water, we will stop to visit some of the local cottage industries that produce popcorn, coco candies and paper along the way. Later we will enjoy lunch in a traditional wooden home on Dong Hoa Hiep Island.

    Can Tho - Saigon. This morning we will pay a visit to the colourful floating market of Cai Rang. Here vendors have their boats piled high with goods, from melons, pineapples and fresh greens, to sacks of rice and children's toys. Browse, barter and admire the hundreds of brightly coloured boats lining the banks here before continuing back to Saigon by road. Once called the 'Pearl of the Orient', old and new collide in this modern city as gleaming sky scrapers, glamorous restaurants and designer shops stand side-by-side with colonial era landmarks and post-war remnants. Here we will enjoy a walking tour of the city taking in some of Saigon's most famous landmarks, including the impressive red-brick Neo-Romanesque Notre Dame Cathedral, the central Post Office and the sobering War Remnants Museum.

Later its back to the hotel for some time to refresh and relax before heading to the trains station in the evening to board our overnight journey (4 berth sleeper cabin, basic standard) to Hue on the 'Reunification Express' railway line.

    Day 4 Imperial Hue
    Upon arrival in Hue we will set out on a guided sightseeing tour of this fascinating imperial city. Once the capital of the Nguyen emperors, the last ruling family of Vietnam, UNESCO-listed Hue is full of palaces, pagodas and temples. Two of the main highlights here are the Thien Mu Pagoda, home to the oldest monastery in the city, and the Citadel. Within the walls of the latter is the Imperial Purple Palace - an exact replica of the famed Forbidden City in Beijing, with impressive ramparts, formal moats and imperial palaces, some of which lay in ruin. Outside of the city we will visit the Royal Tombs of the erstwhile Nguyen kings, including the extravagant mausoleums of the two emperors Tu Duc and Khai Dinh. In the evening there will be the chance to opt for a peaceful long boat cruise along the Perfume River as the sun sets and the river banks become illuminated by the dark of nightfall.

    Day 5 Delightful Hoi An
    Today we will travel on to the laidback riverside town of Hoi An, travelling through the picturesque Hai Van Pass - nicknamed the Road of the Ocean Clouds, with beaches on one side and verdant hills on the other. We will break up our journey with a stop at China Beach, an expansive sandy beach made famous by the film 'Apocalypse Now'. Here there will be the chance to opt for a swim in its warm waters before continuing our journey south along the coast. Radiating age-old charm with grand colonial architecture, Hoi An is one of Vietnam's most delightful destinations. The Old Town, recognised as an UNESCO World Heritage Site, is an immaculately preserved example of an Asian trading port with covered bridges, pagodas, temples and merchant houses. The town's beguiling riverside setting adds to the overall picturesque appeal of Hoi An with women in conical hats rowing their wooden vessels downstream and the glow of red lanterns in the evenings reflected on the water's iridescent surface. A short walking tour will take us to a bygone era, with a visit to the Chua Ong Pagoda, Chinese Assembly Hall, a 200-year-old Tam Ky house, former merchants' homes and the 400 year-old Japanese Covered Bridge.

    Day 6 Village Life
    For a taste of provincial life, today we will take a bicycle ride out of Hoi An to Tra Que village, famed for its traditional farming practises and rural atmosphere. Here enjoy a hands-on day for all the family, tending to the fields and gardens, before taking a lesson in preparation of traditional Vietnamese cuisine. Later enjoy your culinary masterpiece while soaking up the clean air and country views

    Day 7 Hoi An
    Today is free for you to spend as you choose. You may wish to head to the beach for a day of relaxation or hit the town for some serious shopping - the streets of Hoi An are overflowing with tailor shops where you can get your own silk suit made exclusively Hoi An is also something of a culinary mecca with classy restaurants for those who prefer their food served to them and local cooking schools for those who enjoy getting their hands dirty. Alternatively, those seeking a little more culture or history can opt to visit My Son - one of Vietnam's holiest and most evocative Cham sites, or Quang Ngai - the site of the My Lai massacre memorial.

    Day 8 Cruising the Mekong
    An early morning flight will take us to Saigon today, where we will then continue on to the Mekong Delta by road. Known as the 'Rice bowl of Vietnam', the Mekong Delta is brimming with rice paddy fields, colourful fruit orchards, enchanting villages and bustling floating markets. Travelling by sampan from Vinh Long, we will cruise downstream through a maze of waterways, witnessing the activity of everyday life along the way. Passing colourful trading boats, house boats and children playing in the water, we will stop to visit some of the local cottage industries that produce popcorn, coco candies and paper along the way. Later we will enjoy lunch in a traditional wooden home on Dong Hoa Hiep Island.

    Day 9 Mekong & Saigon
    Can Tho - Saigon. This morning we will pay a visit to the colourful floating market of Cai Rang. Here vendors have their boats piled high with goods, from melons, pineapples and fresh greens, to sacks of rice and children's toys. Browse, barter and admire the hundreds of brightly coloured boats lining the banks here before continuing back to Saigon by road. Once called the 'Pearl of the Orient', old and new collide in this modern city as gleaming sky scrapers, glamorous restaurants and designer shops stand side-by-side with colonial era landmarks and post-war remnants. Here we will enjoy a walking tour of the city taking in some of Saigon's most famous landmarks, including the impressive red-brick Neo-Romanesque Notre Dame Cathedral, the central Post Office and the sobering War Remnants Museum. Spend the remainder of the evening at your own leisure - Saigon has plenty of fun to offer all ages

    Day 10 Saigon
    This morning is free for you to do some last minute shopping or sightseeing before your departure transfer to the airport in the afternoon. Why not opt for a relaxing foot massage, bargain for goods at Ben Thanh Market or visit the grand Independence Palace. Alternatively, those with a bit more time to spare can extend their stay and opt to join us on a day trip to Cu Chi Tunnels, where there will be the chance to explore a vast network of underground tunnels and hideouts that were used by the Viet Cong during the Vietnam War. Learn about booby traps, climb through trap doors, or even test your skills with an AK 47 at the firing range

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!
