12 Day Vietnam North to South Guided Group Tour From $2,299

This 12 Day Vietnam North to South Group Tour is the perfect intro experience. Vietnam is awaiting you with its stunning beaches, delicious cuisine, and endless rice terraces. You will travel from North to South along the country – starting in Vietnam’s capital, Hanoi, and ending in Ho Chi Minh City. Learn about Vietnamese culture while exploring Hanoi on foot and in a rickshaw.

A trip to Vietnam would not be complete without taking a boat ride to the renowned Ha Long Bay and capping it off with some kayaking. Soon after, you’ll be at Ninh Binh, where you’ll get to stay in a local homestay, surrounded by rice paddies. Before moving on to Hoi An, you will get to go to Ninh Binh’s famous Dragon Mountain View Point.

The city of Hoi An is renowned for its plethora of historical attractions, bustling shops and streets, and exciting nightlife. In order to bring a piece of Vietnam home with you, local fishermen will teach you the ropes of crab fishing in the morning and teach you how to prepare traditional Vietnamese cuisine in the afternoon. Your final stop will be Ho Chi Minh City, where you will get to learn more about daily life on the Mekong and the history of the Vietnam war, visiting the Cu Chi Tunnels.
