Vietnam 23 day tour

Absolutely, Vietnam tour is something I can't praise enough. Incredible, really, the last 23 days just zipped past. We got to see the prime spots all over Vietnam, and throughout, Huy's expertise and willingness to help stood out. Opting for Backpacking Tours was a stellar choice as a solo traveller wanting to delve into Vietnam since the itinerary was crystal clear and pre-arranged, making the journey smooth. The camaraderie within the group certainly enriched the adventure. A massive shoutout to Huy for such an unforgettable visit to Vietnam!!!

The Vietnam tour

I've embarked on the first of three tours I booked, starting with Vietnam, and it's been an exceptional journey so far. The tour guide exceeded all expectations, offering not just a wealth of knowledge but also unparalleled assistance. Every query I had was addressed swiftly and efficiently before the trip even began. The Vietnam tour itself lived up to every promise made in the advertisement, delivering an experience that was both enriching and memorable. The seamless blend of cultural immersion and adventure was exactly what I was looking for, making it a truly unforgettable part of my travels.

Backpacking Vietnam: The Most Incredible Trip!!

Having just finished up on the Backpacking Through Vietnam tour, I can honestly say it was the best trip I have ever been on!! It is wonderfully planned, including an insane amount of great activities, both local treats and tourist hotspots, which are all made more enjoyable with the expert help of our guide, Huy!! Huy made this trip for me with his insane amount of knowledge, love for his country, and his efforts to make everything as smooth as possible for myself and everyone in the group. I was incredibly lucky to also have an absolutely amazing group of friends to travel this beautiful country with. Thank you so much, Huy and Backpacking Tours, for the most incredible trip!! I HIGHLY recommend BTV.

Would Recommend This Tour (Vietnam)

I would recommend this tour (Vietnam) to anyone. Huy/Jackie is an excellent tour guide. The tour was really well organized with a great mix of activities. Huy loves his country and showing it to tourists. It's not a history tour, but Huy is also very knowledgeable about Vietnamese history. He was able to answer any questions that the group had. The tour takes you down through Vietnam and moves fast but not too fast that you can't relax and enjoy it. Thanks, Huy, for all the memories. Your country is amazing, and I'll definitely come back. Just a heads up, the cost of the trip is not all-inclusive. There are add-ons along the way, and you will need spending money to cover roughly two meals a day. You may need roughly an additional €250 spending money and another €150 to cover optional trips.

Strongly Recommend It!

Trip of a lifetime. I've never been properly traveling before, so when I came across Backpacking Tours, I jumped at the opportunity. I booked the Vietnam tour. The trip has been unbelievable, from the accommodation to the activities, but more importantly, the people I have met along the way. It's the best way to meet new friends and make lifelong memories. The tour guide for this trip was Huy, and he made the trip even better. He is extremely knowledgeable and helpful and made the tour run extremely smoothly. If you're deciding to book with Backpacking Tours, I would strongly recommend it. The best decision I have ever made.

Such An Amazing Trip!

Vietnam was an absolute blast – such an amazing trip! Travelling with an awesome crew made it all the better. We had loads of epic adventures and shared so many laughs. A huge shoutout to Huy, our guide, for ensuring we had a fantastic time. His guidance and fun spirit were key to our unforgettable experience. The moments we shared, from exploring bustling cities to serene landscapes, were just incredible. Huy’s knowledge about Vietnam added so much depth to our journey. Every day was filled with new, exciting experiences and plenty of opportunities to bond with the group. The adventures we embarked on were not just fun but truly memorable, making this trip one for the books. I'm super grateful for the experiences and the laughs we had – it's a trip I'll always remember fondly. Definitely recommend it if you're looking for a mix of adventure, culture, and fun!

Backpacking Tours was truly amazing

This summer's Vietnam adventure with Backpacking Tours was truly amazing. Huy, our tour guide, was not only super knowledgeable but also incredibly kind and such great fun! The people I met during the tour were fantastic, and I thoroughly enjoyed every excursion, experience, and meal in Vietnam. It's a bummer that the tour had to end – I've gathered so many wonderful memories with Backpacking Tours, memories that I'm going to hold dear forever. The mix of activities, from the bustling city life to serene landscapes, was perfect. Each day was a new adventure, and Huy's insights into Vietnamese culture and history made it all the more enriching. The food was a highlight, offering a taste of the diverse flavours of Vietnam. Saying goodbye to the group was tough; it felt like leaving a little family behind. I can't recommend this tour enough – it's an experience that's not just a trip but a journey into the heart of Vietnam.

The Best Experiences of My Life!

What an experience it has been! So delighted I signed up for the tour; such a great way to make new friends and explore Vietnam in depth. The places we've visited have been amazing, and our tour guide, Jackie, has made sure we experienced the very best. The hotels and transport were all spot on, and we never had to wait for a bus once!

I would highly recommend joining the Vietnam tour; it's been one of, if not the best experiences of my life, and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Thank you again, Jackie!
