    My tour in Vietnam was an amazing experience. We’ve been on a rickshaw tour, overnight boat and overnight train. Did a cooking class, crab fishing and crawled trough the Cu Chi tunnels. We’ve seen beautiful views in Ha Long Bay and Ninh Binh. Our groupleader Nathan is a legend. He is solves problems very quickly, is spontanious, very organized and such a funny guy. He knows a lot about the culture and took us to the best restaurants, foodmarkets and clubs. I couldn’t have asked for a better groupleader to have in Vietnam. I would recommend this tour to anybody.

    Vietnam has a lot to offer for tourists. Vietnam intro definitely provides you with a vast range of activities, experiences and our tour guide Nathan was extremely knowledgeable when explaining the history of Vietnam. The activities included on the tour differed and made each day exploring Vietnam even more exciting. I would 100% recommend this tour and I thank Nathan for his guidance as a group leader, ensuring my experience in Vietnam was only the best!

    This travel was amazing! I've seen the things I wanted to see and in a way I wanted to see them. We did things I wouldn't have done on my own, so this was a unique trip! But sometimes the balance between partying and waking up early was less funny

    Really well put together tour, everything ran smoothly and was great fun! I especially enjoyed catfishing in the Mekong which brought me back to my childhood playing in mud at rugby. I thought Ha Long bay was absolutely stunning and the boat cruise was one of the best nights on tour. I also learned a great deal about a friendly fun loving people and was given the opportunity to meet a great variety of local people. Our tour guide Will seemed to have a great relationship with the local people who treated him as a friend and by extension they treated the group similarly. This made me feel less of a tourist and more a traveler embeded in the vietnamese culture which I personally really appreciated. Will was incredibly knowlegeable of the culture, gerography and history of the country. He was always more than happy to answer questions and never hesitated to provide interesting facts and stories about the places we visited. The tour group was really fun and I found it very easy to make good friends. Will always mucked in with the group on activities and nights out going above an beyond to make everyone feel included and encourage maximum fun to be had.

    Will è stata una guida molto brava e disponibile. Nei momenti seri era sempre molto accorto nel descrivere a fondo la storia del paese, mentre nei momenti di svago era il primo a fare battute e a farci ridere. I posti in cui ci ha portato erano magnifici, i luoghi più belli eran sicuramente Minh binh e il delta mikong, immersi completamente nella natura. Grazie will, rimarrai per sempre un ricordo indelebile ❤

    L’esperienza con intro Vietnam è stata davvero fantastica. I luoghi che più mi sono piaciuti sono stati Nin Binh e Mekong. Luoghi in cui sei immerso nella tranquilla natura e puoi vivere il vero e tradizionale Vietnam accolti da famiglie davvero molto ospitali. Anche Hoi an con le sue lanterne tipiche del Vietnam ti accolgono in un’ atmosfera magica e rilassante dove non puoi che non esperire un desiderio lasciando una piccola lanterna nel fiume. Will, la guida, è stato davvero disponibile per qualsiasi cosa. Ha saputo darci molte informazioni e curiosità su ogni luogo che abbiamo visitato. Le attività sono molte e di vario genere, tutte sempre divertenti. Consiglio a tutti di fare questo tour!!

    Il tour era bellissimo, abbiamo avuto la possibilità di vedere tutte parti del Vietnam dal Nord al sud, dalla vita notturna pazza di Saigon alle risaie a Nin Bin (il posto dove abbiamo pernottato dal mio punto di vista è stato il più bel luogo mai visto). Inoltre la nostra guida è stata molto professionale rimanendo allo stesso tempo alla buona e simpatico potendo festeggiarci insieme.
