Vietnam Family Explorer

Vietnam is perfectly suited for a family adventure. There are few countries where children of all ages respond so spontaneously and where lasting friendships are formed on a daily basis. Activity and variety are the keys to the success of this adventure. We spend our days wandering the vibrant streets and markets of Ho Chi Minh City, experience a home stay in the Mekong Delta, and soak up the coastal ambiance of the former sea port of Hoi An where activities include leisurely cycling along country roads to discover local Vietnamese rural life, a relaxing boat trip visiting fishing communities and a cooking experience where the whole family will learn to shop for and prepare exquisite Vietnamese food. In Hanoi explore the wonderful old quarter, and take time out as we sail amongst the limestone karsts and along the endless stretches of beaches at Halong Bay. With such a multitude of experiences and leisure time, it's a true adventure that will appeal to the interests of the entire family.

traveller reviews

We had a wonderful time and everything worked well and we particularly appreciated the interest and assistance of our tour guide, Mr Nguyen. Our children enjoyed all of the activities in the itinerary, with our favorite being the farming and fishing day in Hoi An. Another was the Red Bridge cooking school.
