    Phat, our tour leader, was great. Most locations were excellent. I particularly enjoyed the homestays.

    The trip felt more like a tour where at every opportunity I was taken to a place to be sold things. However, I have been with Intrepid to Africa and that was a real adventure, so I would use you again - even though I was not too satisfied with this... Show more

Frequently Asked Questions

    • Which places does this tour visit? What is the maximum number of people on the trip? What grade is the accommodation?

      To understand where the tour goes, you can click on the 'Itinerary' tab on the tour page.
      You will find there are a maximum of 16 travellers per group. The accommodation on this trip is designed to give you an authentic experience while travelling through Vietnam. This is certainly not a luxury style tour, so please have a look through the detailed description of the accommodation in the relevant section of the attached trip notes too.

    • What is the maximum number of people on this tour?

      The maximum group size for an Intrepid trip is 16 people.

    • Do you do private tours?

      We do not offer personalised & private tours, however to do this, I would recommend contacting a local travel agent, so they can personalise this for you.

    • Would this tour accept kids under 10 years of age?

      Unfortunately, this trip with Intrepid is designed for travellers over the age of 15 so children cannot be permitted.

      Get in contact with us and our customer support team will work on pairing you with the perfect adventure.

    • Where can I find more detailed information about this tour?

      A trip note which contains essential information about your trip will be given to you. There you will find your daily itinerary, where to meet on the first day, what time the trip starts, how to get to the joining point hotel, included activities, visa information, etc. Please contact us for this.

    • What is the rating of the accommodation?

      The accommodation on this trip is designed to give you an authentic experience while travelling through Vietnam. This is certainly not a luxury style tour, so please have a look through the detailed description of the accommodation in the relevant section of the attached trip notes too.

    • I am single female traveller. How is the accommodation taken care of? Do you guys ensure I share the room with gals or will I have to share with guys, as well?

      Intrepid tours will pair you up in a twin share arrangement with another female on the tour, so no, you will not be sharing with a male.

    • I would be arriving a day earlier in the Ho Chi Mi city, will I get assistance in booking my stay and sightseeing?

      Intrepid often offers pre-tour accommodation at an extra cost, so yes, that can be arranged for you.

    • How would be the weather around March? Too hot and humid?

      In March, in the south of the country, it will be hotter than in the north - on average around 30degrees celsius, but perhaps an extra 5 degrees cooler as you head north. Having said that though, the world's weather has been a little crazy the last couple of years, so of course this is a general estimate.

    • How easy is it to find vegetarian food in Vietnam?

      When you make your booking you can specify any special dietary requirements you might have, and I am sure you will find a lot of vegetarian options in Vietnam. Your tour leader will be happy to help you with this too.
