So much adventure

Amazing group of people we explored so many places, did some great excursions and activities (crafts too), very pleased with how much of Vietnam we got to do in 12 days.

Only thing “down time” to explore the city never very long in any of the locations. But i do understand when we are doing so many cities in so many days.

Meg was great, super helpful always there to help in any way needed. Lovely group leader

Really great way to meet people and great if you’re a solo traveller but not really done it before, as at least you can just enjoy and not have to think too much about accommodation/travel days etc!

  • Loads of activities
  • Well planned
  • Great good
  • First hotel not the best, could be upgraded
  • Not a lot of downtime, wish there was a little more
  • A lot of the pre-booked restaurants felt empty, could maybe mix up and choose other places

Vietnam 12 day tour- intro travel

I really enjoyed the intro travel Vietnam 12 day tour. Adam our leader was fab and was always making sure to check on us and see how we were doing. The tour was well organised on the ground and I felt that I got to do a good amount of fun activities and meet lots of other lovely people on my tour. I would recommend it to anyone who is wanting to explore the world but is unsure about going completely alone. There was a good mixture of ages on the tour too which was really nice as well. I really enjoyed the trip to the Mekong delta with the homestay.

Vietnam Intro 12 Days

My experience was great, especially having Adam as my group leader. He gave some really great recommendations for places to eat, things to do and provided great knowledge of Vietnam. For future travellers I would definitely say take every opportunity to get to know the local areas and foods that each location in Vietnam has to offer as it is a unique place. One stand out is in Hoi An getting to visit Mr Xe the tailor, definitely a memorable experience getting a custom made suit. The food in Vietnam should definitely be on every foodies bucket list as it is authentic Vietnamese cuisine.

15 Day Experience

My first time to south east Asia and I couldn’t have had a better time! Thoroughly enjoyed every day on the experience tour. A good mix of activities like hiking, more wholesome ones like tea parties and lantern making and fun nights out. Our group bonded super quick and whilst we are all girls from uk/Ireland we all had very different personalities and interests and the mix of activities was great as there was something for everyone! So glad I did a tour as I wouldn’t have done as many activities in those 2 weeks without! The itenerary is super busy at times with quite a bit of travelling (6 hour bus to sapa and back) but it’s worth it and our leader Adam Donovan made a point of giving time to us to rest or have time to ourselves or just do our own thing.
The only activity I didn’t partake in was catfish fishing, it’s just not for me but I was more than happy to watch the others and take photos for them. I didn’t feel left out or like I was missing out by not doing it.
I packed really lightly (glad I did as I ended up buying clothes in Mr axe’s and the markets) and was relying on washing my clothes once in the country and was able to get a wash done in sapa and hoi an. Unfortunately my clothes weren’t washed well in hoi and one item came back ripped but I would just not use that hotels laundry service again.
I got 2 outfits made in Mr Xe’s that came to $170 (us) so if you’re budgeting I’d just recommend allocating some money for that.
Adam was super helpful and has the patience of a saint (we must have asked him the same questions several times every day). His love for Vietnam was obvious and he was very knowledgeable and went above and beyond for everyone on the group in regards to onwards travel.
Felt super comfortable and safe the whole time and this has given me more confidence to spend a couple more weeks in Vietnam solo :))

Vietnam 12 day Intro Tour

This tour was amazing, it gave you a good impression of the country whilst also giving you reasons to revisit. The activities were diverse and varied from very active cycling/hiking to more chilled out crafting/cooking. Every experience was unique and the itinary very full on, i would say you need a relatively good level of fitness/health to experience it fully. It is not a chilled out holiday but if you are seeking immersion and opportunities to make memories and do unique things then it ticks all the boxes.

Adam was our tour leader, he has a clear passion for the country that was great to see, he was supportive and patient, especially when i lost my phone after falling into a bush! He went out of his way to make sure i got it back. He went above and beyond making sure we were safe and comfortable with everything and his passion for supporting local people really stood out for me.

It was an incredible experience i would definitely recommend to adventurers and culture seekers alike.

  • Diverse range of activities
  • Fully organized
  • Great mix of culture/history
  • Very packed itinary
  • Some activities are challenging depending on your abilities
  • Not enough time in some of the locations

Vietnam Josh dell

Josh dell was a great guy and a great tour leader.

With a big group of over 20 people and a jam packed itinerary nothing was too much to ask.

he kept his cool throughout which had a knock on effect with the group to make an enjoyable atmosphere & experience.

Tour had a good mix of nightlife and culture and enjoyed the trip however would have liked some more free time to do as you liked on your own as felt burnt out at the end

Wish him well in the future and hope to meet him again 👍

  • Great group of people
  • Good itinerary
  • Relaxed atmosphere
  • Maybe an extra chill day here and there

Best experience ever!

For me it was the first time going to Asia. Both Vietnam and Cambodia surprised me on so many levels! The group and group leaders were amazing people, which made the experience even better. The activities were great and it was the best way to get to know the country and each other. Everything was well organized, we didn't lose any time with waiting and everything was taken care of, so we could enjoy every minute to the fullest!! In the near future I would definitely book another tour with Intro Travel!

Best trip ever!!!

Thank you so much Sam you were an amazing tour leader! I had the best time and would highly recommend this trip to everyone! It was completely unforgettable! 💕 We went to some of the most amazing and beautiful places and every day was different. You could really get a feel for the history of all the places we visited and we had people local to the places we were visiting show us around! I did this trip solo and have made some lifelong friends all over the world as a result! I’m hoping to go on another trip with Intro soon!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Try everything and ask lots of questions! Don’t be afraid to travel alone!
