We did a vietnam tour. Its a wild country but make stress free, easy and really enjoyable through Intrepid with really good tour guides. No worrying about how to get to places and getting ripped off by taxi drivers. Felt safe with the local tour guides looking after us. For that reason, I'll use intrepid again next time.

Great experience & opportunity to see a lot of Vietnam in a short space of time. Take a sleeping sack & ear plugs for the train & if you want to do additional trips, add more cash to your budget. Hopefully you'll be lucky & have Cong as your tour leader!
