Reviewed on 30 Jul 2019 by Stewart FoxThe vacation was spectacular and offered a huge variety of activities that kept even our 16-year-old son entertained for the entire duration.

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
Planet and peopleWe have built strong links with local communities, craftspeople, artists, singers and musicians who are maintaining threatened traditions. During our tailor made Vietnam vacations we offer visitors an opportunity to meet them, thereby valuing their activities and thus helping towards their survival.
For example, you'll contribute to sustaining traditional calligraphy, an art form under threat of extinction.
On these Vietnam vacations you'll also meet local people and enjoy a meal in a 'garden house' in Hue. In Ho Chi Minh City, you'll see the complicated process of making traditional lacquerware in a local workshop. At Vinh Long in the Mekong Delta, the local people will welcome an opportunity to perform their traditional Tai Tu music for you.
Wherever possible, we contract local indigenous suppliers for these Vietnam vacations and assist them to improve the quality of their services. By booking this tour, you'll be helping us to support Vietnamese service providers, artists and performers, small businesses, boat owners and other poor people in communities throughout Vietnam.
We use local freelance guides with wide experience and knowledge of cultural traditions and an ability to interpret the cultural heritage of the people in the places visited. For these Vietnam vacations, you'll have about four different guides from various provinces of Vietnam.
We are working closely with a small project in Vietnam trying save a critically endangered species of large primate, now reduced to less than sixty individuals world-wide. We're seeking financial assistance to supplement the meagre resources currently available to the project director while we help her to develop her own web site.
We are also collaborating with an international non-governmental organisation in setting up an ecology based village homestay network in the same area to widen awareness of the urgency of the situation amongst visitors.
