    A great tour. Our guide Cuong (Kevin) was truly excellent - he made our tour the excellent experience it was. The overnight train journey was an experience! The only thing that could be improved was the boat at Halong Bay...it was a bit basic. Overall... Show more

FAQs

    • Can you help us with our visas if needed?

      Unfortunately we are unable to give visa advice due to the vast number of nationalities which our customers represent. Some nationalities can travel freely over borders, where others require advance permission to enter. There are also changes in requirements from time to time. We recommend checking your local embassy or consulate's website for the latest up to date information.

    • What is the average group size of this tour?

      The expected group size for this tour is 1 - 16 people.

    • I'm a solo traveller, is there a single supplement?

      Solo travellers do not have to pay a single supplement as this is a group trip designed for shared accommodation. You will be paired in twin or multi-share accommodation with travellers of the same sex, which is a great way to get to know your group and enrich your travel experience! If you would prefer a little more privacy, a single supplement can be paid subject to availability for all nights excluding Day 2 and 3. Please contact our Travel Experts for more information.

    • Can you tell me more about the accommodation?

      Accommodation on this trip is on a twin/multishare basis. Please note there may be times where facilities will be shared rather than ensuite and rare occasions when you share a room with passengers travelling on different Intrepid trips than your own. The accommodation is basic, clean and comfortable but please note that the the style of accommodation indicated in the day-to-day itinerary is a guideline. On rare occasions, alternative arrangements may need to be made due to the lack of availability of rooms in our usual accommodation. A similar standard of accommodation will be used in these instances.

    • What is the age range?

      Those under 15 are unable to book onto this tour and under 18's must be accompanied by an adult. There are no upper age limits for this tour however, and Intrepid's appeal is diverse. If you're comfortable with the itinerary then your welcome to join the tour!
