    In general I have to say that the tour was amazing. Will was super friendly and always gave us good information about the places we were. We had good time to spend as a group, and also had some time to be by our selves. All the places were super beautiful, the food was also very nice, however I think that could be improved. The accommodation was nice in general, but I didn't like much the last one in Ho Chi Min, as the location was not so pretty. I don't ride bike usually, and Will found the way I could join the activities, which is a plus as is always important to consider any condition. This is the first time I do a solo travel and join a tour and I really enjoyed the experience so I might do another one next year for sure.

    Hannah is the most amazing tour guide, completely goes above and beyond for everyone! The trip shows you all the best bits of Vietnam and Hannah’s passion and love for the beautiful country is so so evident which brings the tour to a whole new level! I have learned and experienced so much but the absolute highlights are kayaking around Halong Bay and being shown the stunning Ninh Binh! So sad I couldn’t stay for the 12 days with the best group I could ask for!

    Wow what can I say about this incredible trip! Hannah is an absolutely amazing tour leader and I couldn’t have wished for a better person to have shown us around beautiful Vietnam. She is a credit to the intro travel team and I will miss her! I have throughly enjoyed my time on this trip and I hope to come back to the country very soon. Everything is planned perfectly so you can experience the wonderful things Vietnam has to offer in such a short space of time. This trip is so worth it!

    This tour was a great intro to all that Vietnam has to offer. Jam packed with lots of cultural, adventure and fun activities that highlighted the very best of Vietnam. Nathan was a great tour leader who gave us lots of information about the country and made the whole experience entertaining and inclusive for everyone on our tour. It was a fantastic tour and I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who wanted a great mix of culture, adventure, amazing sights and lots of laughs!

    Had a blast on this tour! Really let’s you see parts of Vietnam that you wouldn’t know exists without Vietnam intro leading the way. Nathan was our tour leader and he was amazing! His knowledge of the different areas & Vietnam’s history is second to none & he is always on top of the itinerary. Leaving you with nothing to worry about. Would highly recommend this tour!

    We had such a fab time on our tour through Vietnam. Our tour guide Nathan was excellent! He had a wide knowledge of the areas, local culture and also the history of Vietnam. The intenary was perfect and covered a variety of different activities that were great! My most memorable part of the tour was the overnight boat and the stay on freedom island at Ha Long Bay. We enjoyed our trip so much that myself and my husband have booked onto the Bali Intro tour in the next few weeks! Well reccommended for sure!

    Thank you for another wonderful trip with intro travel, I have once again had the most amazing time with the most amazing people. Nathan was an excellent group leader (despite his terrible clay pot meal recommendation ;) ) and kept us all together so well, he made an effort to get to know each and every one of us and encouraged us to do the same with each other, and I truly hope I have made some friends for life in the beautiful country of Vietnam. Thank you Nathan, and thank you Intro travel, I cannot wait for my next adventure with you!

    Wow, wow, wow. Vietnam Intro was an INCREDIBLE tour and I am still on such a high from it. I would recommend to anyone who goes to Vietnam as we got to see all the must-see places but also some hidden gems too so it was perfect. My group leader, Hannah, was an absolute superstar and I am so lucky she was my leader. She went above and beyond to make this trip what it was. I was so impressed with her knowledge of the country, her genuine passion for the trip shone through and her energy and positivity bounced off on the rest of the group. There was never a dull moment! For me each day of the tour was better than the last with the cooking class and crab fishing in Hoi An being my highlight. I wouldn’t have wanted anything to be different - the only thing I would change is that I wish I could have done the 12 day tour instead of the 9 as I didn’t want it to end! I can not wait to go on another tour with Intro Travel.

    Vietnam Intro has been a great way of packing a large, diverse country into a short space of time. The tour involved a huge amount of activities with the sense of having been carefully picked to produce a balanced pallette to accomodate all tastes, whilst keeping energy and enthusiasm high over the tour. A particular highlight was the stay on freedom island - a gorgeous secluded beach spanning the gap between two limestones mountains in Ha Long Bay national park. Our tour guide Will was very very good. He was very professional, fun, exciting, inclusive, patient, helpful with great shape cutting abilities. He was very good at ensuring everyone felt involved and part of the group, and he put alot of effort into advising my onward travel to Java. I would absolutely support an award for tour guide of the year.

      The website is so easy to use, and with a large number of tours to choose from and great 24/7 backup via phone and online chat, I wouldn't book my trips anywhere else. I also love earning credits towards future tours with each booking. Highly recommended.
