People who tour Vietnam love the exciting mix of delectable Vietnamese cuisine, rich history, and stunning natural beauty. However, the Vietnamese people often steal the show with their demonstrations of ingenuity and their friendliness to visitors. Proud and patriotic, the Vietnamese delight in sharing their traditions and history.
During your Vietnam holiday you will experience its contrasts. The frantic pace of the cities contradicts the traditional farming methods employed in the peaceful countryside. The bustling Mekong Delta of the south is a world away from the breathtaking Halong Bay in the north. Trek to traditional hill tribe villages in the cool climate of the north one day, and relax by the pool at a tropical island resort the next.
When you travel to Hanoi you can feel a serious and stoic capital steeped in history, while the vibrant and cosmopolitan Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), with nine million inhabitants and five million motorbikes, never sleeps. The former Imperial capital of Hue and the ancient trading port of Hoi An offer an evocative glimpse into the country’s rich historical past.
Vietnam promises to leave fond and lasting memories, and with so much to see and do, the real challenge is deciding how to fit it all in to your Vietnam Holiday Package!

"Everything in Vietnam has gone very smoothly. The guide and driver have been wonderful, helpful and attentive. They have been on time and we have enjoyed all our activities. We would recommend them highly." — Naomi & Alison, Perth & Melbourne, October 2018
"The Vietnam trip was Brilliant, could not fault the drivers, guides, sightseeing and loved Hanoi and Halong Bay! We met a Veteran at the Cu Chi tunnels with a translator Getaboutasia arranged and we were lucky to have a hotel in Mekong to ourselves and felt like VIP. Planning our next trip with Getaboutasia to Sri Lanka." — Mr & Mrs Oppel , Cheltenham , May 2018
"The Ha Long Bay adventure was perfect. Two days gave us time to really enjoy the boat and scenery not to mention the quality of the food on offer. Vietnam flights were comfortable and on time. Saigon was truly wonderful. Of course the traffic was stunning. Our guide Tammy bent over backwards to ensure we enjoyed the stay., We felt like princes as she helped us onto the first boat taking us across the Mekong river whilst dozens of tourists crammed onto boats around us. (and helped this 80 year old on and off several other boats during our time there.) We visited farms and businesses making chocolate from Cocoa bean and sweets from cocoanut cream.Our knowledge of tropical fruits expanded and we enjoyed the trip on the jaunting cart. Then there was the channel cruise on the small boat with the lady oarsman. On the practical side, all three guides were excellent. Were there to meet us at airports and were concerned to ensure that our passage through Airport Departure was smooth. All hotels were up to the standard we had hoped for and vehicles/water bottles etc spot on." — Mr and Mrs Brown, Sydney, April 2018
"Vietnam!! What a trip!! What a country!! The whole thing was perfect other than our flight delay. Anyway, it all ended well. Thank you so much for contacting the Vietnamese operators for us on your day off to reorganise our pickup. Much appreciated. Our guides were great also. They really gave us a good insight into Vietnamese culture and history, much more than we would have ever understood if we had done our own thing. I can't really rate any place in Vietnam higher than others since they were all so different. We also enjoyed Cambodia as well! Thanks very much for your organising of our trip" — Mr and Mrs Martin, Sydney, January 2018

Our accommodation was excellent and we ended up with a Presential Suite and Suite for two of our rooms for the Halong Bay Cruise. A great holiday! " — Mrs Daley and family, Picton NSW, May 2017
