use only friendly, professional Vietnamese and ethnic minority
women and men with plenty of experience, choosing them carefully
to suit the itinerary and, most importantly, you! We usually
use expert local guides because they have an in-depth knowledge
of the area, but if you wish, you can have a general guide
to accompany you throughout your tour.

will be good. Each will be highly responsible, fluent in your
language, and skilled in 'interpreting' the heritage and life
of Vietnam in an interesting and thought-provoking way. We
don't employ 'walking guide books'!
prices with no hidden extras
We apply a standard margin to all our tours. The amount we
add is calculated to cover our costs and generate a modest
profit, and never exceeds 20%. This applies to the agreed
itinerary only - if you require help with, for example, a
dinner reservation or arranging a ticket for an event at the
Opera House, we won't add anything extra to the price quoted
by the restaurant or box office.
you ask us to make hotel or flight bookings only, the prices
we quote will always be competitive and fully inclusive of
all taxes and service - no hidden 'extras'. If you want to
visit workshops or commercial outlets, there will be no obligation
or pressure for you to buy anything - we don't make deals
to receive commission.
