Our custom-built tours of Vietnam are truly ‘made to measure’ for you so each one is unique, and according to our guests, we “make tailor-made travel easy”.
I’m Ms Lan, a Vietnamese tour specialist for over 15 years based in Hue City, central Vietnam and along with my experienced team, offer you a unique discovery of my beautiful and diverse country.
Your Vietnam tour is special and we know that. Our personal approach to each and every client makes sure that you get what you want. Not some pre-packaged ‘follow-the-crowds’ that unfortunately is all to prevalent, in our market.
All you need to get started is an idea of when you want to travel to Vietnam, the number of people in your party and perhaps what you’d like to see and do in Vietnam.
Then get in touch with us and we’ll create your tour with you.
Private tours of Vietnam are ideal for couples/families, associations, clubs and special interest groups. The flexibility that can be achieved in these tours makes them highly sought after.
Supporting local communities and initiatives is at the heart of what we do – in many places and in a number of ways. This helps local people to benefit in a way that is sustainable for their communities and ensures you receive a much more authentic and real understanding of Vietnam and its people.
Our latest and most significant venture to date, is with the women farmers of villages around Hue, in central Vietnam. Here the women farm natural grasses and weave them into simple products. With our support, the grasses are now being manufactured into unique fashion items, such as hats, bag and purses and marketed throughout the region, as well as to international markets. This initiative is dramatically improving the lives of the villagers involved.
In the far north around Sapa, we support a local community of minority tribes-women who guide all our clients on treks and even offer homestays for those who would like to have a completely unique experience.
For our tours of the Mekong Delta, we try and avoid the larger commercial places and take you to smaller family-run ‘cottage industry’ type enterprises, where you have more time to see and understand how families make their daily living. You’re not required to ‘shop and buy’ at any of these – we make a contribution to them, direct from us for each visit.
These are just a few of the initiatives that we not only believe in, but also maintain, so that you – our client and guest are assured that your tour also benefits many communities throughout Vietnam.
Recommended here through a colleague and not disappointed. Prompt follow-up to my inquiries with a range of choices. I appreciated that they weren’t only trying to sell me on high end options.
I’ve returned time and time again to Viet Orchid simply because they make everything so simple, they don’t overcharge and they go out of their way to ensure you get the best service
Viet Orchid know all the best local operators and we found we were going to the same places, same Ha Long Bay cruises, same hotels, same cooking courses as the prestige companies, but for a major saving.
