Great change of pace from the city

Loved every minute of this trip! It is a great way to experience the less-known gems in Vietnam. The activities were very entertaining, and the guide made them much more enjoyable. Would recommend this tour to anyone who wants a whole week out of the city!

Excellent - Terri Arcas
Interesting experience!

Educational and informative tour with Tony, our English tour guide. Learned a lot about the local village in the North of Vietnam. It was a great experience to eat, sleep, and talk like a local. My whole family had a fantastic time visiting the place!

We’re having such a great time.

Hi Tansy,

We’re having such a great time. All the hosts have been so hospitable. Viet has been a great guide. He’s very humorous, mindful, yet professional. The driver, Bihn, I think is his name, has kept us safe. He’s very responsible and doesn’t drink with us during breakfast/lunch time, only at dinner when his “work” is done for the day. It puts us at ease.

Excellent - Barbara

We are a couple in our early 70s keen to experience the highlights of Vietnam but including visiting the hill tribes. Can you suggest and price something you feel would suit us. We are not trekkers but have good mobility. We have been invited to stay in Hoo An for 7 days so if the trip could start or end there it would be a plus. Kind regards Carol


Since the hill tribe in in northern area of Vietnam so i suggest you visit this area before flying to Hoi An for relaxing. But the transfer time will a bit longer I am not sure if it is ok for you?
