    Vietnam Intro is definitely a trip I’d recommend to all of my friends. The tour has a good balance of cultural activities, sight-seeing and nights out ensuring that there really is something for everyone! Our tour guide Faye went above and beyond to make sure that everyone was comfortable and well looked after and became an integral part of the nights out. I wouldn’t hesitate to book another tour with Faye and would like to thank her for constant effort in making this tour so memorable!

    The overall trip was a blast. Our leader has been amazing, very informative and always joining in even during our free time. The activities we did ranged from cooking classes to the party island and catfishing; all of which were fun filled especially with the group I was in. Everyone was getting stuck in and encouraged eachother. The home stays were gorgeous and idyllic. I will definitely be doing another tour with intro travel!!!!

    A great tour. So much to do and so many amazing peope met along the way. Matt's rapport with the local homestay owners made the overnight stays just that little bit more authentic. The only thing that could have been better was a little more free time in the Mekong Delta village to explore the island - but we would definitely have needed a map, as every path looked the same.

    Had the best time ever on the Vietnam Intro tour! All the people I met were amazing, Faye brought us all together like a big family! Got to experience so many new things, and learn about the Vietnamese culture. Definitely made some amazing friends and memories for life. Faye was such a great tour guide, she always looked after everyone and made everyone's experience the best it could possibly be. She was like a mother to us all. She has definitely made my experience in Vietnam one to remember. Thank you Faye!

    Words can't begin to cover what an absolutely phenomenal experience I've had on this trip. I came away with two of my closest friends and have left with a whole family! The itinery which covers the main highlights in Vietnam was fantastic. In such a small amount of time I was able to experience the true Vietnamese culture and explore some of the most vibrant cities in Vietnam. It was a perfect mix of culture, adventure and of course nightlife. What's Vietnam without a few shots of rice wine hey! Cycling through the stunning Ninh Bihn, kayaking through beautiful Halong Bay, catching a catfish with my bare hands (Bear Grylls eat your heart out) and crawling through war tunnels were just some of the fantastic experiences I encountered. Of course none of this would of been what it was without the fantastic people I met (best friends 4eva) and of course our lovely tour guide Faye. Having been on a few tours in the past with different companies I can honestly say that Faye has been my favourite guide out of everyone. She was friendly, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and made every experience so much fun. Her passion for Vietnam really shone through during the tour. The way in which she became so excited and passionate during every explanation or experience we had, made her a truly amazing tour guide. If you want a true Vietnamese experience I highly urge you to book onto his tour. Intro travel provide such fantastic intineries and it's down to Faye that I have booked another one. Faye you have made this experience unforgettable and I truly hope you are our guide in Sri Lanka! Bring on the next tour. Mot, Hai, Ba, YOOOO!

    It's hard to put into words how good this trip has been. There has been beautiful scenery, Amazing people and incredible nights. Intro travel has obviously put a lot of thought into their trips creating a perfect balance of partying and culture. They've split up the the ways we travel so it's as efficient as possible to tour this beautiful country in the time we had. To tie this whole trip together we have our group leader Faye who was unbelievable, she managed to bring the entire group together as a family pretty much on the first night and keep us together until the last one. She will be out with you having a good time on a night out. She will be haggling down the locals that are maybe a bit too ambitious with their prices. She will be with you when you are ill or down. She will also know when to just leave you to your hangover for a little bit. The point is you won't regret this trip and you'll be lucky to have Faye with you along the way.

    One of the best places I’ve been to! The people are very lovely and the tour takes us to all of the places in Vietnam that I wanted to visit. The highlight definitely is the homestays where you learn so much about the culture here. Hoi An was an amazing city, very clean, pretty and chilled in the centre. That was definitely the best city that we visited! The tour guide, Faye was amazing and even when we had ‘free time’ she was always involved, showing us the best places and giving us the best time!
