Heather "I had an amazing time. Our Leader was a lot of fun but also very knowledgeable. The tour included a mix of history, real life experiences (like the overnight train - you must do this!) and fun! Lots of good food, great company (all ages) and we did things I would never have done on my own - like bike riding through the streets and farms (I'm no spring chicken!), or paddling through the reeds in a ..."

    This was an excellent tour. The guide was excellent and exceptionally helpful. Transport and accommodation throughout the tour was very high standard and we fitted a lot into the ten days. I highly recommend intrepid tours

    Fantastic trip, couldn't recommend highly enough - we did so much in just over a week and the tour leader Ngoc was brilliant - very informative and helpful. One of the best intrepid trips I've done so far.

    This tour was absolutely sensational. Way beyond my expectations in every way! Our group was fabulous, 16 of us from all ages and stages of life, and our tour guide, Hungsi, was absolutely brilliant. Acccommodation in every town was top of the range, especially Hoi Ann at the Emm Hotel, and the tour inclusions were fantastic value. Food was awesome everywhere we went and the optional extras were all spot on, affordable and great fun with something for everyone. I would not hesitate to highly recommend this tour to anyone either partnered or single - as a single middle aged lady I felt included at every point and very safe and I made some fabulous new friends! Thankyou Intrepid, an absolute winner all round!

    A fantastic experience really got shown the real Vietnam. Travelled with 13 other like-minded travellers age ranging from 22 to 60. Our guide Tom , a local young man was simply the best. He looked after us and took care of everything ,he was never off duty. Our group travelled from South Vietnam to the North. We travelled by coach, train, plane and boat. We are seasoned travellers and this was a trip of a lifetime. The group got on so well that some of us would have lunch and dinner together, great company. We all learned a lot about the country, the people and it's food. Most of us voted the bike ride through small villages as our favourite part. Great value for money.

I'd recommend this trip to anyone!

    This is a great snap shot tour of Vietnam. Our group was 9 awesome people, lead by Bien who was amazing. Accommodations were always within walking distance to points of interest, I loved Hoi An and was happy to spend a little extra time here, and the Halong Bay Junk Cruise was a fantastic way to end a wonderful trip.
