The Highlights of Vietnam small group tour is one of our most popular – for good reason. Spend 11 nights meandering down the length of Vietnam and explore the busy cities of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh  (formerly Saigon), the pretty riverside town of Hoi An and the historical town of Hue, as well as UNESCO sites Phong Nha National Park, Halong Bay and the Mekong Delta.

Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos – three neighbouring but contrasting countries, each fascinating in their own right.

Our 15-night Indochina Encompassed small group tour kicks off in style in Cambodia’s capital Phnom Penh and explores the fabled temples of Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, before flying to laid-back UNESCO town Luang Prabang in Laos. From here you’ll head to Nong Khiaw to take to the Nam Ou River before spending a week in Vietnam. Cruise on Halong Bay, spend time in the hustle and bustle of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, and cycle through the rice paddies outside Hoi An.

You’ll sleep soundly in comfortable three-star and four-star hotels on these trips, and some meals are included in the price, giving you plenty of flexibility. Each of our small group tours have a maximum of 14 people and are led by our expert tour leader.

Small group tours can be a great way to make friends, but if you’d rather hit the open road alone, we have plenty of self-guided options. Our friendly team are happy to help you with the logistics while giving you the freedom to discover Indochina as a solo traveller.
