    Program description

    Welcome by our guide at the airport in Ho Chi Minh City. Formerly known as Saigon, this city is the biggest one in Vietnam, offering tourists exhilarating kicks on every sense. Considered by locals as “sleepless city”, the city center area is bustling in the day time and even more lively at night. Night life in Ho Chi Minh city is an inviting paradise for whom who love bars and parties. This city is currently ranked as the second most dynamic city in the world based on factors that contribute to long-term economic growth such as innovation, inspiration, investment and infrastructure.

    Check in your hotel and overnight in Ho Chi Minh city. 

    Morning:

    Explore the underground Cu Chi Tunnels, a historic battlefield from the Indochina War located on the outskirts of the city. Upon arrival, descend into the subterranean world of tunnels stretching over 200 kilometers. These tunnels, with a width of 70 cm and a height of 90 cm, lead to various meeting rooms, kitchens, and even hospitals.

    At noon, you'll enjoy a local restaurant lunch before returning to Ho Chi Minh City.

    Afternoon:

    • Keep your energy up as you embark on a half-day city tour, visiting the city's must-see attractions.
    • Your first stop is the Independence Palace, where the Vietnamese Revolutionary Army achieved victory in 1975. 
    • Your next destination is Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral and the Central Post Office. These landmarks are prime examples of French architecture in the city.
    • Continue your tour with a visit to the War Remnants Museum, which provides insights into the First Indochina War and the Vietnam War. The museum showcases compelling visuals depicting the futility and devastating effects of the conflicts.
    • As the sightseeing tour concludes, you will be dropped off at your hotel, giving you the freedom to explore the city at night.

    NOTE: The Notre Dame Cathedral is currently undergoing renovations until 2027. You may be taken to visit the surrounding areas, such as the street book.

    Depart for the Mekong Delta, a unique region that combines both land and water, situated in the southernmost part of Vietnam.

    The Mekong River, originating in the immense Himalayan range, traverses five upstream countries in Southeast Asia (China, Burma, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos) before finally flowing into the Pacific Ocean within Vietnamese territory. This river has sculpted a vast and fertile delta in the southern region of the country, famously known as the "Mekong Delta."

    Upon arrival in Ben Tre, a significant town located in the heart of the northern branches of the river, embark on a boat journey along the waterways to reach Mo Cay, a less-visited rural area celebrated for its coconut trade and the production of various coconut-based products like coconuts, coconut threads, and activated coconut charcoal.

    You'll have the option of a bike ride or a ride on a Xe loi (motorized cycle) through the lush green island, densely adorned with coconut plantations. This route, away from the hustle and bustle of mass tourism, leads you along narrow paths beneath the shade of coconut trees, creating a particularly picturesque landscape. Make stops at local farms to observe the production of sweets and coconut brooms.

    Continue your adventure with a journey in a small rowing boat, meandering through canals lined with water palm trees, providing you with a glimpse into the daily life of the delta's residents. Visit Mr. Van's traditional house and savor local specialties crafted by his wife, including coconut jam, honey tea, and pollen. You'll also have the opportunity to engage with the warm-hearted local population, fostering memorable encounters. 

    Continue on to the city of Can Tho. 

    Wake up early and journey to Can Tho, the capital of the delta. Upon arrival, set off on a boat adventure to explore the bustling Cai Rang Floating Market. Here, you'll witness a captivating scene as boats are brimming with fruits, vegetables, and a variety of goods, showcasing the unique "river trading" of the Mekong region.

    Afterward, visit some of Can Tho's must-see attractions such as Ben Ninh Kieu and the historic Binh Thuy House.

    On your return to Ho Chi Minh City, make a stop in My Tho to visit the Vinh Trang Pagoda.

    Return to Ho Chi Minh City and enjoy some free time until your transfer to the airport for your return flight.

    This marks the conclusion of our 5-days South Vietnam tour services!

    Mr. Patrick and Mrs. Marie Perou

    The rest of the journey went very well until Pu Long, largely thanks to Thien who quickly understood what we wanted to see (amazing hikes) and what we wanted to experience in our interactions with the minority ethnic groups. Thanks to our guide, we had many warm exchanges and shared beautiful emotions over tea, fruits, and bong gao in their humble homes. Unforgettable experiences in the villages of tiles, knives, incense, and weaving.

    An opportunity for great happiness to experience the Than Minh festival proposed by Thien.

    Thank you for the foot massage, which was a pure moment of relaxation... It made us want to book a full body massage upon our return from Pu Long.

    We are truly delighted with our journey in the North, although we missed the good weather a bit.

    A word also about our driver, who was extremely careful on the mountain roads and always provided valuable assistance with a smile for his passengers.

    Looking forward to continuing towards Halong Bay tomorrow.

    Greetings from Lima, guys! We just got home and we don't even feel tired! I still have the energy to keep going, haha!
    Now, let's talk about the North. In February, from Hanoi to Ha Long, there is a lot of drizzle. I suggest other visitors always carry a fine raincoat when they go. Luckily, it didn't alter our plan much. We enjoyed the coffee with egg and the bun cha. Ms. Nhung knew all the perfect places to eat, without worrying about finding available places, and at good prices! I'll send you some great photos from Hanoi!
    But, the most amazing thing was the experience on the Mekong! Just perfect. We loved Mr. Nguyen; He had an in-depth knowledge of the place, which made us enjoy it to the fullest. He also shared a lot of interesting things about the Vietnamese and their current and current culture, not just theory.
    The hotels were ok, no complaints. This trip makes us think of Cambodia and Thailand with our friends in the future (still wishes)
    I think that's enough for now. See y

    Hello Mrs. Huyen and all her team,

    We had dreamed it, we had prepared our trip with the guides, and now we are back, with the images still fresh in our minds.

    Thank you and congratulations for this perfect organization, despite the fact that a flight was delayed a day at the last minute. We found our guides and drivers as planned, the guides were friendly, spoke perfect Spanish, the "busy" program was respected.

    Recounting our journey could become a real novel, so we will talk about the main points. Now, worry before leaving because the guides said that we should avoid the Tet period, that for the lunar new year everything was closed, anyway what joy, flowers, decorations, events everywhere.

    👉Hanoi, staying in the center, after a tour of the city, and a visit to Kampa Tour, a well-deserved siesta, we set off on foot (without a guide) through the narrow streets (thanks to the GPS to find the hotel).

    👉The next day, visits to museums, great water puppet show.

    👉Day 3:

    We're on the flight from Siem Reap to Bangkok. I'm writing these lines because I'm eager to share more details about the trip, in addition to praising the services (hotels, restaurants, etc.) that I mentioned during the call in Vietnam.

    Visiting the Angkor Wat temple complex is worth it. When we entered, we felt like we were becoming tiny people. It was a very surprising experience. On the second day, when we arrived at the lakeside village of Kompong Khleang, the scenery isn't beautiful, but it showcases the culture of the people, which is very interesting. The tour guide in Cambodia is very good, has a good sense of humor, and is always willing to explain everything coherently. So we didn't respond to the message immediately.

    The continuity between the visit to Cambodia and the conclusion of the trip in Vietnam is certainly very reasonable. The number of days for visiting is also appropriate. In addition to following our itinerary, we also made use of our free t

    January 2024 - The trip went well. We had memorable experiences in Asia with your team, the guides, and even the driver. Everything went smoothly, from the weather to the services (meals, accommodations) you arranged for us. Here are more details:

    The first week in Vietnam was very good. We loved the egg coffee. Vietnamese cuisine is very diverse, and it was great because we had time to try most of the typical dishes: pho, bun cha, cao lau, and banh mi. The Old Quarter of Hanoi has an ancient beauty, but it's still a bit noisy. The cyclo experience was very reasonable and helped us not get bored while going to Hoi An, also to the Old Quarter, but to explore it by bikes. Ha Long Bay is very beautiful. The cruise was excellent.

    The next part of the trip was in Cambodia, where we had truly amazing moments in front of the ruins of Angkor Wat. The tour guide in Cambodia was very detailed in everything we wanted to know. A few days in Cambodia are enough.

    The end of the trip was in

    Dec 23, 2023 - We came back enchanted from our trip to Vietnam as a couple. Vietnam is a magnificent and endearing country.

    The inhabitants are very welcoming and kind. As soon as we got back, we were already looking forward to going back. This was our first trip to Asia. Thanks to Vietnam Découverte and above all to its highly competent team, and in particular Madame Thom Doan, we set off with great confidence, and we haven't regretted it. The organization is impeccable, the hotels are top-quality and the activities varied (visits, trekking, kayaking, cycling, etc.).

    The program was heavy, but we were able to split the tour into 17 days instead of 15, to take advantage of each region.

    What a pleasure it was to be accompanied in each region by a guide who spoke perfect French and knew the country very well. We were able to travel with complete peace of mind, letting ourselves be guided and driven without worrying about a thing.

    November 13, 2023 - Our trip was simply extraordinary and wonderful. It was a lesson in life. It would not have been possible without Mrs. Duong Lan, our Vietnam découverte correspondent, who was always available and very attentive, and who proposed a personalized tour according to our needs, guiding us in our choices.
    The hotels were chosen with great care, and we really appreciated the home-stay accommodations, which gave us the chance to share special moments with the families. 
    Our driver, Phong, young and careful, was wonderful and very kind. Our guide, Hiep, "a walking encyclopedia of Vietnam", knew northern Vietnam and its history inside out. He was very committed, a good listener and had great human qualities to match his skills.
