Vouchers
Accepted
Vacation type
This is a private tour for individual families (or even just a group of friends) based upon a minimum of 4 paying persons. Dates are – up to you – so there are no fixed schedules while, as a private tour, all activities and destinations can be tailored to suit your family’s preferences and age group. You can discuss this with our staff prior to departure while smaller details can be discussed at the time with your tour-leader. Your tour will be accompanied throughout by a licensed local guide experienced in family tours, except for the beach/island stays which usually feature at the end of tours. Please note there are no age limits and so far we’ve had travelers covering the entire range from 2 to 87!

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
Destinations: We combine the well known tourist sites with many off-the-beaten-track, rarely visited destinations thus diverting tourist revenue and contact with responsible tourism into areas not usually benefiting as well as providing a more authentic view of the region visited.

Instruction: By explaining our methods and the reasons behind them local agents, guides and hotels are encouraged by us to adopt further responsible tourism practices themselves and guides and drivers are provided with additional training in this respect.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

We encourage the sustaining of traditional handicrafts and supporting people with disabilities (in a region where disabilities can utterly preclude gainful employment) by visiting, and encouraging purchases from, the Hong Ngoc Humanity Centre in Sao Do town, near Hanoi. This is an entirely Vietnamese-run NGO, which allows disabled children and young adults to learn vocational skills relating to the manufacture and marketing of handicrafts. More on how we are having a positive impact on Vietnam soon.

Information: Providing suitable, relevant information for our customers; to help them to gain a wider understanding of our style of tourism that focuses on learning, genuine interaction with the local communities, reciprocity and cultural exchange processes. To be aware of the potential impact of tourism on the local society, culture and environment, and to behave and dress appropriately with a respect and appreciation for local customs, mores and traditions and a respect for the ecology of areas visited. Our guides and leaders thus facilitate communication of our values to both travelers and local communities, educating them in sustainable tourism practices

Group sizes: By limiting groups to small sizes we aim to reduce the impact on both local communities and the environment whilst allowing for greater genuine interaction with said communities. It also results in a higher guide/customer ratio thus greater facility for supervision and individual assistance and allows us to use smaller hotels and restaurants and employ the services of more genuinely ‘local’ operators perhaps not otherwise well equipped for larger groups.

Local products: As much as possible we aim to employ local personnel, (guides, drivers, agents etc), use local restaurants and smaller privately owned accommodation. Customers are also encouraged to buy and use local products and services as much as possible in order to support and stimulate the local economy.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


I loved it all but the traveling was more fun than the relaxing at the end. There was so much to see.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


It’s tricky being vegan in Vietnam!!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


We found the use of disposable plastic water bottles quite shocking and then at Mui Ne the sea was full of plastic bags and takeaway boxes.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Fabulous .

Read the operator's response here:

Thank you for your comments Laura and we are delighted that you had a good vacation with your family in Vietnam. I'm sure being a vegan in a country where the diet is based around fish products is a problem, but hopefully you and the family found enjoyable food whilst you were there!

In terms your comments on question 3, we share your regret that like many bodies of water on the planet, the South China Sea has a rubbish problem. As we all know, there is so little that one resort can do about floating ocean plastics. However, steps are being taken in the region to reduce the reliance on disposable plastic bottles and, as a company, we do ensure that as many hotels as possible on your itinerary offer a water refill service. This enables us to reduce our reliance on single use plastic to bottles of cold water during journeys. Many tourists opt not to use the refill service, as they are uncomfortable with water safety. Where this is the case, we do our best to ensure empty plastics are placed in recycle bins.

Hopefully, you did find other aspects of the vacation were more successful in benefiting local people and reducing environmental impact, this is as important to us as to you.
