    Hi I am just completing discovering Vietnam and it is my favourite place. I met Jane last year in Thailand and we all promised to join her this year. We have not been disappointed the programme planning has been as diverse as the country itself. We have experienced sensory overload from Halong bay to the golden hands bridge just wow . Can’t wait for next tour x

    Ah, the trick becomes how best to describe the Bamboo Vietnam experience? I'm not a fan of spoilers - so if that's what your looking for, you'll have to refer to another review. What I will share instead was my very personal experience, the feeling of absolute awe at creation, at culture, and at community... At creation... You will see sights that will challenge your mind. You will see magesty, and you will experience wonder. Vietnam will surprise you, and it will captivate your very senses. It will grab ahold of you not let you go. You will be wowed. At culture... What a special people. There's a sense of pride, of warmth, and of strength, that is not shouted, that is not proclaimed - it is simply demonstrated, it is made manifest. It is woven into the very fabric, the very essence, of the people. These are good, good people. These are people happy to have you visit, and proud to be able to share their country with you. From their kindness, to their attentiveness, to their capacity for execution. You will be wowed. At community... Now community, I can't promise you. Because the community that our group formed was, of course, unique. But it too was part of the life changing experience that was our Bamboo Vietnam trip. The people that we were blessed to share in this experience with us were second to none. After two weeks I both consider them all, each and every one of them, part of my extended family, without reservation. And I also miss them... which very well may be the most difficult part of the trip. This trip bonds you with the country, with the experience, and with the people both of the country and of the group. And that's before even mentioning the volunteering portion. Take the experiences described above, and infuse them with the opportunity to do something meaningful, and challenging, and difficult, and well done. Inject into the experience the opportunity to contribute... possibly in a way that you've never before contributed. And know that you leave a little bit of yourself, a little piece of your effort, a little piece of your soul in Vietnam. That a portion of you will always remain there in a contributory capacity, potentially improving and amplifying another family's experience hopefully far into the unforeseeable future. And finally I want to give thanks, generally to the Bamboo organization for putting together such a well implemented and well executed experience. And specifically to Jane and D, our tour guides, our organizers, and our shepards - for sharing so much of themselves, their country, and their time with us. Often in two minute intervals. (Inside joke.) What good and kind embassadors they were. Conductors, who produced nothing less than a master symphony of experience. I cannot thank them enough. Their help and their hearts formed the lattice that everything else was stacked upon. They were phenomenal guides. Without them, our trip would not have been the same. So how best to describe the Bamboo Vietnam experience? Four words: You will experience wonders. 100/100. Do it without reservation. O and do not miss the optional show, the last night in Hoi An. It was world class.

    Always smiling and welcoming from the minute I met her. She was so knowledgeable and if she was unsure of anything she went out of her way to find the answer for you.

    This was a trip of a lifetime. The guides shared their home country with love and expertise. They put together a fantastic itinerary that included spectacular scenery, a taste of the country and good hard work helping a local family. We shared laughter, stories, and experiences that will always be with us. It was a fantastic experience and I can’t recommend it more highly.
