The very best of Vietnam, from old quarters to karst sea formations, this tour visits 6 UNESCO World Heritage sites by plane, train, boat and road to give you the best experience. Read more >

Our Highlights of Vietnam tour does what it says on the tin. Over 12 nights, this trip covers what we consider to be the very best of Vietnam's natural, cultural and historical destinations - including six UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Our tour commences in Hanoi's romantic Old Quarter, then goes on to the scenic vistas of Ninh Binh before cruising around the towering limestone pillar of Halong Bay. We'll then fly to central Vietnam to the historical capital of Hue before taking a train through the stunning Hai Van Pass to the ancient and beauty of Hoi An and finally diving right in to the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh City to conclude the trip!

The pace of the tour needs to be quite fast to enable us to fit in so many highlights, but with a night spent on board a lovely traditional style junk on Halong Bay, a full day at leisure amongst the Karst formations of Ninh Binh and laid-back Hoi An, and a day exploring the quiet backwaters of the Mekong Delta, there's plenty of time to kick back and relax if that's your style.

We travel by a combination of plane, boat, train and private coach to get you from place to place in the most convenient and efficient manner possible, helping you make the most of every day you've got to spend in Vietnam.
