PRIVATE TOUR - NOT A JOIN-IN TOUR



This 7 day tour includes our favorite sites in central and northern Vietnam, from the ancient UNESCO World Heritage Site Hoi An, to bustling Hanoi and a night on a traditional Chinese junk in Halong Bay. The atmospheric streets of Hoi An will transport you back to an earlier era of emperors and palaces and the delicious local delicacies will make it very difficult to leave! Hanoi, with its lakes and bustling Old Quarter, has its own magical charm. Iconic Halong Bay, possibly THE classic image of Vietnam, is best enjoyed on an overnight cruise, ensuring ample time to explore the numerous islands and photogenic karst formations, with swimming and kayaking available depending on the season.
