    Is there a better tour guide out there? Passionate, Inspirational and one of the most positive people I’m fortunate enough to know. I could go on with adjective to describe Hannah’s personality and ability to lead a group of people across Vietnam however I would be here all day. I’m thrilled she was my guide as she enhanced my experience immensely. Her knowledge is outstanding and the way she educates the group along the way is made to look easy without any hesitation or need to refer to the internet or any other documents. Her kind hearted, fun, high energy character is touching to everyone she meets. She’s magnetic and I’m sure I can speak for everyone when I say that we all leave wanting to stay in touch and maintain a friendship. If Hannah ran another tour, I would book without any hesitation and also recommend everyone to join. Thank you hannah for making this a wonderful experience and I hope you continue to get the joy you deserve from your work and other experiences along the way.

    By far the best tour I have ever done ! Exceeded all expectations and we was so lucky to have Hannah as our tour guide. She was amazing and a great friend to everyone. Highlight of the trip was Halong Bay and Mekong delta. I cannot wait to come back to Vietnam !

    I enjoyed the tour so much I have put down a deposit to go onto another Intro tour in the future. The Vietnam tour was well-balanced between experiencing culture, sight-seeing and having fun. Every day was different and upon reflection, I can't believe how much we experienced within just 2 weeks. Our guide Nathan made the trip for all of us and was able to gel the group into a team from the first night. Fantastic time and fantastic memories.

    This has been one of the best decisions I have made in my life, one of the most interesting and entertaining things I’ve ever done! From Freedom Island, where we had the whole island to ourselves or to seeing the different cities throughout Vietnam or even just kayaking around Ha Long bay and taking in the post card pefect views. For a first time traveler like myself or an experienced one we could not have hoped for a better tour guide in Hannah, her energy and knowledge about Vietnam is second to none. So for anyone who is undecided or hesitating to book a trip, feel safe in the knowledge that you will never regret the decision to book Vietnam Intro!

    I have recently completed the 12 day Vietnam Intro Tour and thoroughly enjoyed every single day!! This was my first ever Intro Travel trip and I was apprehensive (as always) before flying to a new country. However, Hannah made us all feel so welcome and safe from the word go! The fun filled itinerary gave us a true reflection of the local communities, the countries history and had the perfect injection of free time and socialising! I’ve made friends for life and shared amazing experiences with fantastic people. Thank you Hannah for making Vietnam one of my favourite destinations on a 6 month world tour, you’re a wonderful guide; an absolute natural at keeping spirits high and your knowledge of this amazing country was astounding! Can’t wait to book my next Intro trip!

    I've just finished the 12 days tour of Vietnam Intro with Hannah and its safe to say we all had a great time. The tour was fun and action packed with busy days sight seeing mixed with nights out and relaxing when we needed to recover. The tour takes you south through Vietnam doing things you just wouldn't be able to do entirely on your own. Reccomendations of what to do, look at and a guide to help you understand the local culture. This is my third Intro trip and the thing you get out of this more than anything is an amazing bunch of friends some of which will be around long after the trip ends. If you're thinking about booking the trip, stop thinking because there are few better ways I know of spending your money! Our group leader was Hannah Kern and she made sure we were all looked after and everyone was happy. She was amazing and made our trip. She was ill one days but still managed to keep herself together in 37 degree heat on a bike ride an hike. Fair play to her!

    Overall it was a great tour; I especially enjoyed Ninh Binh, Holi Ann and the homestay in Mekong Delta. Perhaps the two things that I did not enjoy a lot was the noise in the boat (above all, considering how special halong bay is) and the room and bathroom in freedom island. A special mention to Nathan, our guide. I am impressed with the amount of energy, positivness and care he put into the tour. I don’t know how he does it. In particular, I appreciated the fact that he always try to involve everyone in the group’s dinamic and check that each of us is ok. He has organisational and time management skills

    I liked the accommodations in the middle of nature. Waking up there is just great. The varied, traditional food was mostly very good. The buses used for transportation were consistently comfortable. Nathan was a funny, friendly and entertaining guide. I would always go again on a tour with him. Thank you!

    Used this tour as a 2 week holiday from work. For me the itinerary was well balanced between activities and relaxation. Our group was mixed and our tour guide Nathan was able to get the best out of us. I have come away with great memories and will be recommending this tour to anyone interested in experiencing a left-field culture. Love from Luton.
