It’s not just where you go. It’s how
There are as many travel companies to explore Vietnam with as there are places to explore. Friends Travel Vietnam travellers are looking for something more than a plane ticket, a hotel room, and a seat on a bus. We make travel meaningful by thinking small, thinking local, and thinking about what benefits the traveller, the trip, and the planet best.
Why Book With Friends Travel Vietnam?
As adventure travel pioneers, we’ve always done things a little bit differently.
1| We only recommend tours we’d be happy to join in ourselves and the tours we run ourselves.
We started our business by sending our friends & family for the great holiday experience to destinations and tours. The one we loved and where we had the best holidays of our lives in Vietnam. The factors that made that such a brilliant holiday experience are the same factors we now look for at Friends Travel Vietnam – that’s why we hand-select our tours & accommodations are only recommend places we love ourselves.
2| We're honest
If the weather is getting a bit chilly in the North during the winter or the season is getting a bit rainy, we’ll make sure you know before you set off so you can pack an extra jumper or rain coat. If you travelling on a budget string you can’t expect 5 star meal or luxury accommodation we share with you the real thing you can expect.
That's not to say we're down on any of our tours or services - quite the opposite! We just want to make sure that when you head off, you know exactly what to expect.
3| We've got a small premium selection for our tours
We might be picky about quality, but that doesn't limit our selection. When it comes to uncovering exceptional new tours, we’re like a pack of hounds on a Sunday morning (just without all the tweed and “tally-ho!”).
…and only the ones we liked we will add in our premium selection.
4| We're good for groups and… of course single, couples, family travellers.
Booking tours or accommodations for large groups can often be a problem. Not so at Friends travel Vietnam! We’ve got great accommodations around. So whether you need somewhere for a unit reunion or the annual gathering of the family clan, we’ve got it covered.
5| We believe in fairytale endings
The registry office will get the job done, but where’s the romance in that? If you’ve always had your heart set on a fairytale wedding, we’ve got all great luxury stays and romantic luxury villas than you can shake a glass slipper at. We can help you plan for the big day too, guiding you through the logistics.
6| We're at your service
At Friends Travel Vietnam, the service doesn’t just stop at the front of your door. From car hire to booking local activities, catering and transfers, we’re happy to arrange everything you need for a perfect holiday. Get in touch with our service by sending us your email request!
How you get around depends on your choice of Travel Style and Service Level. We use local transport – buses, taxis, commuter trains, etc – because it’s the most economical and colourful way to go.
We select accommodations that reflect the character of the destination. This could mean a handpicked downtown hotel one night, a unique homestay the next, and camping under the stars the night after that.
Your trip is just that – yours. Want to linger at the market or grab a table at that cozy café? Consider it done. We give your trip structure and direction, but you decide what you want to do with it.
For our groups, the average about 12 travellers per departure, and are typically a mix of solo travellers, friends travelling together, and couples, all of varying ages, backgrounds and nationalities. Come prepared to make plenty of new best friends.
