Escorted tours in Vietnam
To travel in Vietnam is to dive into a riot of colour, flavour and the history of a warm and welcoming people. To get the most out of your time here, try a guided tour with an expert, and get under the surface of what makes the nation tick.
Go further than the guide books
It’s one thing to know the dates and participants in historic events, but another to understand the attitudes and habits of local people. And in Vietnam, where history still looms large—from the Cu Chi Tunnels to the Reunification Palace and Jade Emperor Pagoda—it helps to have someone on hand to explain the impact of historical events on everyday life. Moreover, an escorted tour provides authentic local insights and experiences, such as local street foods and landmarks that you might miss on your own.
Spend part or all of your holiday with an experienced guide
A one-day pho cookery course or guided walk through the rice paddies of Ninh Binh can be an educational counterpoint to an independent exploration; or, for those who want a more immersive experience, a river cruise or cycling holiday provides the opportunity to learn deeply about one part of the culture. Whether you want to spend your entire trip under the guidance of a tour leader, or you’d prefer to dip into one or two day trips that interest you, there are plenty of ways to tailor your Vietnam holiday to suit your interests.
