Absolute scenic destinations!

A beautiful insight into Vietnam's customs and culture. I highly recommend it for anybody wanting to observe the life of local people and ethnic minorities. We were amazed by their lifestyle, clothing, dancing, and more. There were so many things to see! It is well worth it!!

Wonderful trip through BestPrice Travel

Our trip to Vietnam through BestPrice Travel was absolutely wonderful. Ms. Hang Moon arranged everything for us, from airport pick-up in Saigon to hotels, tour guides, and more in Hanoi, Hue, and North Vietnam. Everything was almost perfect, with clean and comfortable hotels, knowledgeable and fun tour… More

We enjoyed the time very much!

our favorite part was the first homestay. It was a really authentic and beautiful experience to have. Thank you very much that we could change the traveling due to the cancelled flight. We enjoyed the time very much!

we were not aware that there will be so much traveling time in the car. But it was most likely the best and most quickest way to cover that much distance. But we made several stops to take pictures and enjoy the countryside.

I like trekking through the mountainous views of Vietnam. I also like exploring the daily life of Vietnam's ethnic group. Is there any tour that helps me to take in the beautiful view of the mountain and help me experience the life of ethnic residents?


We have but it will take more than a week to travel

Hi, Vietnam will be my next destination to visit. I want to take part in a tour that helps me discover the Northern region of Vietnam in about 5 - 7 days. However, I don't really like extreme activities so are there any adventure tours that have interesting but not too intense?

@Daniel Wang:

This tour mostly time are driving, not too much walking so i think you still can do that.

Hi, I would like to have some more detailed information about this tour. For example, transport arrangements, quality of accommodation...etc. We are a couple aged 70+, so sleeping comfort is quite important to us. Also, we have quite a narrow time frame. We will be in Hanoi approx 27 March, and fly out on the 5 April. Would this fit in with one of your tours? I look forward to your response. Regards Mike De Nicolis


Since this tour going to untouch area so most the accomodation are homestay or standard hotel. It is private tour so we will arrange private car for 2 of you. Our trip have 7 days in total so it is match with your time frame.
