During this trip, there will be several long days of travelling and you'll be sitting on a bus for many hours at a time. However, road trips often have the best views, and most private buses feature wi-fi.
Two nights of this trip are spent on overnight sleeper trains with journeys of up to 12 hours. Although the conditions are basic and you'll be sharing a compartment with four to six people, this is the best way to maximise your time spent at various destinations.
This trip involves a lot of walking - on city walking tours, the hike in Da Bac and during included activities. While being on your feet can be a bit tiring, this is the best way to truly get under the skin of a place.
You'll be spending two nights in different homestays with a Vietnamese family. While the accommodation is shared and basic, this is a great opportunity to connect with the local people (and enjoy delicious home-cooked meals!)

We were the first group with a slightly new itinerary. Overall the trip was really enjoyable but since it was slightly new there were a few hiccups along the way. Our tour guide was very eager and helpful in attempting to make things right but some issues were due to the day of the week and he couldn't really fix. The home stays, motorbike ride and cooking class were some of my highlights.

Great way to see all that Viet nam has to offer. I was never bored. Always plenty to do. Farm stay was great. I highly recommend this trip.
