Departure information

We offer a complete tailormade service and this suggested sampled itinerary can be tailormade to suit your requirements

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.

We have built strong links with local communities, craftspeople, artists, singers and musicians who are maintaining threatened traditions. 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.

You'll also meet local people and enjoy a meal in a 'garden house' in Hue. On this tour, you'll visit a pagoda in Hue where a community of Buddhist nuns care for around 200 orphans from babies to young adults.

Of course, you are under no obligation to assist, but donations and suitable gifts are always welcomed as the orphanage has no other external source of income.

Wherever possible, we contract local indigenous suppliers 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 who can interpret the cultural heritage of the people in the places visited. You'll have about two different guides from various provinces of Vietnam.

We had a wonderful time and felt that we accomplished what we set out to do, which was to give our 14 year old daughter a taste of the sites, history and culture of the country in which she was born. Read full review
