"Vietnam’s booming popularity as a holiday destination should come as no surprise."

Escorted Tours and Holidays in Vietnam

A holiday destination like no other, Vietnam is an exciting mix of beautiful scenery, glorious beaches and fascinating history, not to mention the amazing food. It’s a wonderfully diverse country that offers you so many unique experiences, adventures and escorted tours, regardless of your travel personality and budget.

One of the most famous areas in Vietnam is Halong Bay, a treasured UNESCO World Heritage Site that’s best known for its turquoise waters and maze of small limestone islands. When it comes to exploring this part of Vietnam, we recommend you choose an escorted tour that includes a junk boat cruise around the bay to enable you to get closer to the towering islands and mysterious caves.

Another area to add to your Vietnam holiday bucket list is Hoi An, an atmospheric riverside town that caters to all travellers and is home to temples, ancient homes and a lively gastronomic scene. Situated on the coast of central Vietnam, Hoi An used to be a commercial port and is now a well-preserved town with its own silk village, buzzing markets, tempting cafes and over 800 historic buildings.

If you like ancient capitals, travel to the banks of the Red River to discover the busy streets of Hanoi and to find pagodas, unique museums and colonial buildings. In addition to being jam-packed with architectural gems, Hanoi is loved for its delectable cuisine, cultural diversity and amazing nightlife. Although the traffic can be pretty hectic in Hanoi, it’s a fabulous place to take an escorted tour and explore the highlights on foot.  

Talking of bustling cities, you also have Ho Chi Minh City, a city bursting with energy and discovery. It’s the place to go for tasty street stalls, various boutiques, shopping malls and modern skyscrapers, as well as ancient temples, historic monuments and a thriving cultural scene. Formally known as Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City has an old world charm, yet it constantly moves forward and never stops dreaming big.

But your Vietnam holiday and escorted tour options don’t stop there. You can also venture into the orchards and paddy fields of the Mekong Delta, otherwise known as Vietnam’s ‘rice bowl.’ From riverside villages and floating markets to rice fields and wooden stilt houses, the stunning Mekong Delta offers you a glimpse into the traditional Vietnamese way of life. Alternatively, head to Sapa in northern Vietnam for a trekking adventure or rice-paddy escorted tour, or go to Dong Van in the Ha Giang district for breathtaking landscapes and mountain views.
