Responsible tourism: Vietnam at a glance, 8 day itinerary


All of our travelers will enjoy our 8 day Vietnam at a glance tour package. We have spent a lot of time scheduling the activities of the tour so that the travel is responsible and fun for all of our travelers.

The travelers on this tour are transported by vehicle and boat where possible. The mode of transportation that we choose is dependent on where the next part of the trip is taking place. If we are traveling on a river, it is much easier to take a boat. We are not using as much gas, keeping the roads in better shape and not polluting the air with car emissions. When our travelers are in a vehicle, we use the smallest one that we can and travel on marked roads. We never want to travel on land that can be damaged easily. We try to leave the areas we visit looking just as nice or better than when we arrived.

We encourage all of our travelers to reduce water usage and waste when possible. We try to swim during our tour, so that people can clean up without the use of a shower. As we are touring the country, we take all of our waste with us and we never leave anything behind. We want to protect the wildlife and the locals from the damage that could be done if waste was left behind.


During this tour, our travelers eat at many local restaurants and farms. A tour at a family owned coconut workshop ends with a lunch of local dishes, including elephant ear fish and tropical fruit.

At the Tra Que herbs and vegetables organic village, our travelers will learn how to cook traditional foods during a cooking class, before enjoy that food for their lunch. By utilizing local farms and restaurants for our meals, we are not only learning more about the traditional foods of the area, but we are supporting the local economy.

We use local tour guides for all of our tours and our guides have become very close to the locals over the years. This allows our guides to extend their knowledge to our travelers. Our guides make sure that all of our travelers know the guidelines and information that they need as they are visiting each area. Our guides know that it is important for the travelers to treat the locals with respect and they let the travelers know how to do that for each individual cultural group.
