Paul "Had a good guide and a good group which made for a great trip. Vietnam is beautiful, both the places and the people. One of the best things in this tour is the variety. The trekking was tougher than expected (it was steep and muddy) and the homestay was better - all together in a kind of barn. Ha Long bay is stunning. The boat was luxurious with air con and showers.

    This was a very enjoyable time where we saw and experienced lots of things we would not have if we had gone on our own. The accommodation was of a good standard and we enjoyed being able to choose our own cafe and food on many occasions. Coming from Australia where 'tipping' is not practised I did find that a little awkward at times. Overall a well rounded trip.

    The trip was as advertised - a mix of rural and city. The guide was easy to understand and pleasant.

    Had a good guide and a good group which made for a great trip. Vietnam is beautiful, both the places and the people. One of the best things in this tour is the variety. The trekking was tougher than expected (it was steep and muddy) and the homestay was better - all together in a kind of barn. Ha Long bay is stunning. The boat was luxurious with air con and showers. The overnight trains were reasonably comfy (apart from the toilets). Hoi An was more peaceful and allowed a bit of break halfway through. At times there's also the remnants of the war to reflect on. It was hotter in the Mekong - another fun homestay with everyone sleeping on camp beds under a roof without walls. The hotels throughout were pretty nice and the food generally is pretty cheap and pretty tasty. Overall a little on the touristy side, so if you want a more grassroots trip look elsewhere, but for me, a good experience.
