Recommended from a friend who had used Vivutravel. Hoai our consultant was very efficient to deal with. Trustworthy & professional operation. Our travel guides were all very informative, always punctual, knowledgeable and amicable. The transport was clean & good drivers ensured a comfortable ride. A great way to see Vietnam.

Private family tour, meeting our expectations I along with my family members decided to have a private family tour Vietnam on a budget. Ours was a short trip, and we covered all the main attractions of the country. We started from Hanoi, and our tour ended in Ho Chi Minh City. We enjoyed the cruise along the Halong Bay. We experienced the great history and noted the turmoil in the Cu Chi tunnel. We enjoyed the street food and some biking experience. We were overwhelmed with the nightlife and the buzzing culture. I have plans to come to Vietnam again and will prefer the same tour operator and guide Mr. Truang.

From the Halong Bay Cruise, cycling trip in Hoi An, motorbike ride in Ho Chi Minh city to the fabulous hotels, this was the best 10 day tour every! Vivutravel tour guides were fantastic, so helpful and friendly. Our travel consultant Ms Huong talked us through the itinerary and made sure we were happy with our excursions and hotel bookings. Travel guides really made a holiday and the knowledge of all our guides was so impressive. This really was a great tour. If you love being outdoors this is a great tour for you. One of the excursions we cycled along country roads and got to see rural life first hand, we saw wildlife and locals working the land as well as immense paddy fields. The tour is full on and very busy but worth it. Halong Bay was breathtaking. A wonderful tour, well organised and everyone we dealt with at Vivutravel were professional and we felt like we left having made new friends.

A tour that ticks all the boxes. We had a set budget so when we contacted Vivutravel we gave them our budget and hoped they would be able to help. They were fantastic. Our consultant Ms Ngoc was great and kept well within what we could afford. We chose the 10 day tour in the end. We got to see all the big destinations in Vietnam. In the city of Hue, after visiting the ancient capital of the Nguyen dynasty, we drove through windy, narrow streets and got to see amazing parts of the city. Our driver Mr Bao was so helpful and we felt safe even though the roads got scary! Halong Bay is a must see for anyone and even though it was touristy, we loved the fact we could stay on a junk boat and sail into the sunset, so romantic. The food all along the tour was well organised although some places we stopped were just too busy. We would have liked more options of places to eat but apart from them a fantastic 10 days in a lovely country. Well done.

We booked with Vivutravel a 10 days tour to visit the South, the Central and the North Vietnam with guide and driver + cruise on Halong Bay. After having communicated our wishes and our interests by email, we received a personalized proposal that we were able to adjust. The package was perfect. The drivers were also flexible to adapt as best as possible to our wishes. We will keep an excellent memory of this trip thanks to the service of Vivutravel. We will choose Vivutravel without any hesitation for our future trip to Laos and Cambodia. A big thank to Hoai who took care of us.
