Private Guided Vietnam Tour

10 Day Vietnam Guided Tour

Hop-on this Vietnam Guided Tour and discover why this country is your next bucket-list destination.

Decorated with colorful sights and sounds, Vietnam’s long thin ‘S’ shape is often compared to that of a bamboo with two rice baskets at either end of the pole, representing the two main cities with Hanoi being the capital in the north and Ho Chi Mihn in the south. With each part of the end beautifully characterized, you will find the lush Red River Delta and the highlands in the north, known for its magnificent scenery and colourful hill tribes, which seems to perfectly complement the agricultural plains and floating markets of the Mekong Delta in the south. Vietnam’s war-torn history has drawn the influences from the French, Chinese and Americans, each leaving their unique print on the nation where it has become readily apparent in the character of its towns as well as in the architecture and food.

On this amazing Vietnam Guided Tour you will not only experience the two main cities of Vietnam, but also cruise into the mystical Halong Bay, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its spectacular scenery where more than 2,000 islets rise from the Gulf of Tonkin. From Hanoi you will make your way by flight to the former Nguyen Dynasty's capital and royal city of Hue, situated on the country’s central coast. This city is well-known for its splendid historical sights and is dominated by the massive Citadel that once seated the emperors of this former Forbidden Purple City. Not too far from Hue you will make your way by road and visit the quaint town of Hoi An, once a major trading port, boasts the perfectly preserved architectural influences of the Asian merchants from the north.

This Vietnam Guided Tour comes to an end as you spend your last portion of this journey in Ho Chi Mihn City, or better known as Saigon, the largest city and business capital of Vietnam.
