5. Unique Perspective
Visiting a new country from the UK is more than just seeing all the tourist sites, museums and eating in popular restaurants. Living life like the locals can enhance your holiday; not only do you get a unique insight into another cultural life different to your own but you will get to meet some amazing and friendly people.

Imagine sitting with a local family and eating a freshly cooked authentic meal, listening to them engage and learning how they enjoy meal times. A tour operator really can offer you a unique perspective on Vietnam.

6. The finer Details
If you have booked a holiday from the UK before, you will be all too aware of the details involved in booking and organising your trip or annual holiday. The endless booking confirmations, hotel bookings and ensuring you find the right excursion for everyone can cause stress even before the holiday has started.

It is believed that on average people will make over 14 phone calls, spend 6 hours researching and over 10 hours booking all the elements of their holiday.

A tour operator like Vivutravel can take that hassle away from you. Essentially you give them all of your requirements, your budget and a list of places you would like to visit and they will take care of booking everything for you.

7. Logistics
Visiting any new city or country can be daunting when it comes to figuring out exactly how you will travel around the country. What is the local transport system like? Should you hire a car? Are the areas you want to get to easily accessible? All of these questions are not easy to answer when you are sat behind your computer desk in the UK.

Using a tour operator will ensure all of your transport needs are arranged and if you decide you want to explore a city or area on your own, your tour operator will be able to give you advice on the best way to navigate your way around.

You may choose to let them take care of all your travel plans, so you can sit back and be safe in the knowledge you will be collected and looked after on your tour around Vietnam.
