For the adventurous family, Vietnam offers dramatic scenery, ancient temples and palaces, fantastic and easy cycling and great beaches. If you are looking to just fly and flop then head instead to Thailand, but if you want to explore, then travelling from North to South, Vietnam offers buzzing Hanoi, the majestic Halong Bay, picturesque countryside, the Imperial City of Hue, the sleepy riverside Hoi An, the Mekong Delta and lots of beaches on the way.
Travelling with kids in Vietnam, there are a couple of things to be aware of; Crossing the road can be a nightmare (particularly with young kids). It can be galling to be so near to some of the world's best street food and have to take the easy generic restaurant option to placate your children. You also need to beware planning too arduous a trip, with lots of short stops and cultural sites or someone in the family will be moaning.
For this reason, we encourage families to spend time outside of the big cities. For instance, Hoi An is atmospheric and easy to wander around without the dreaded traffic and there are beaches a short drive away. Many of the highlights of Vietnam are in the North and we often leave Saigon and the Mekong Delta out of trips to create an easier pace and more space for beach time. And we try not to go too heavy on cultural sites and temples, we design itineraries that mix the cultural sites up with bike rides and treks in the countryside and plenty of pool time.
All our trips in Vietnam are tailor-made so get in touch and we will start planning a trip to suit you.
Our itineraries are carefully designed by our experienced travel designers based on years of experience and customer feedback. For a custom itinerary tailored to you, please enquire giving as much detail as possible on your brief.

The trip was amazing everything was better than we could have imagined.
There was a moment climbing the mount Kenya where my wife accused me of tricking her into doing this (half kidding) as some of the nights got pretty cold, but we were dressed well and the sunrise at the peak was astonishing.
Safari was spectacular, Ben who was our main guide and driver was awesome! We saw everything excepts rhinos which were more of a hope than a reality. We also were able to watch a rock python eat a Thompson gazel live. It was one of the most interesting and unsettling things I have ever seen.
Just overall, so many moments that make you think wow or I can't believe I am here. Thank you for your help in getting everything set up. I don't believe I could have booked the trip without your help and guidance. It was an amazing way to start our marriage and truly the trip of a lifetime!

The Namibia trip was fantastic!
Self-driving was brilliant, and the chronology of the itinerary was perfect (against the flow/direction most other travelers took).
As for specifics:
This place was the best!
Best service, best staff, best food, best experiences, best facilities.
We saw a cheetah kill, leopards, and white rhino (which we were not expecting).
If you’ve never been you should go...If I ever go back to Namibia I will revisit.
The only (slight) disappointment.
Maybe because it was right after Okonjima, but the service was lacking, the facilities were a bit run down, it was the only place with mosquitoes in the room with no net and no spray. Food was marginal. Not sure if there are better options in the area, though.
Etosha Park was amazing. There was so much wildlife with so little crowds.
The Okaukeujo Camp had the best watering hole with animals coming in at all times of the night. A great experience exclusive to the camp.
Beautiful place. Very private. Food and service excellent.
A nice stopping point on the drive.
An amazing place...How they laid out and built it.
Enjoyed exploring the grounds and the local area/sights.
The staff was on par with Okonjima.
2 days were perfect.
Ivin provided us with good advice/information/recommendations along the route, along with a cell phone and cooler for the trip. The car was perfect.
They represent Tourdust well!
Again, another great trip you put together...Thank you!

We both suffered but enjoyed it immensely. Just how it should be!!!!
Our route up the mountain, the Burguret trail is very arduous and certainly should not be used for people who are not very fit and experienced trekkers. It mainly followers animal trails through the forests and bog lands around the mountain. The Chogoria route down was great. The guide and porters were great. Wild camping means just that, really just what I wanted, but I have lived in Kenya.
