After breakfast we embark on an exciting back streets tour of Vietnam's capital. Our adventure starts with a taxi ride from the hotel to a well known street market northwest of the city which sells giant trees and plants. From here we stroll along the sidewalks, following an urban trail through the backstreets to the quaint district of Vinh Phuc. After exploring this wonderful neighbourhood we stop for refreshments at a unique coffee shop tucked away down a narrow alley. Then it's time for an exhilarating local experience, riding pillion on taxi-motorbikes through a maze of tiny streets and along the shore of beautiful Ho Tay Lake. Our 2-wheeled taxis drop us off for a tasty lunch of Vietnamese street food, in the yard of a former film studio.



In the afternoon we walk past Ho Chi Minh's Mausoleum (exterior only), where ‘Uncle Ho’ has laid since 1975 and learn all about the great man himself, who is regarded as the father of the nation. Continuing on we stroll down Hung Vuong Avenue to explore the complex of the beautiful Temple of Literature, which was Vietnam's first university.
Then we board the local bus to the Hoa Lo prison, aka the Hanoi Hilton, named by US prisoners of war. We finish the day with a glass of refreshing beer on a sidewalk facing the Soviet palace. Return to the hotel by taxi for an evening at leisure.



Please note: If you would prefer not to travel by taxi-motorbike, please an air-conditioned car/ taxi will be provided at no extra cost.

icon Day 3 : Halong Bay

Location:

  Hạ Long Bay


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Hanoi – Halong Bay. Take a moment to picture in your mind some two thousand rugged karst islands dappled with lush vegetation seeming to float on top of pristine emerald coloured waters and you have the natural wonder that is Halong Bay. This morning a scenic drive will take us to this beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site where we will enjoy a junk boat cruise.



Based on traditional designs, these wonderful vessels combine oriental style with modern luxury. Soak up the panoramic views from the sundeck as the boat gently plies its course. This afternoon we visit Trinh Nu Cave, one of the finest caves in Halong Bay, covering an area of 2,000m² with a stunning array of stalactites and stalagmites. There's also the opportunity to go kayaking and enjoy a refreshing swim. Later this evening back on board, watch a Vietnamese cooking demonstration held on the sundeck before settling down for a sumptuous seafood dinner.

icon Day 4 : Halong Bay

Location:

  Hạ Long Bay


Meals Included:

  Breakfast


Halong Bay - Hanoi - Hue. Early birds can start the day with a relaxing Tai Chi class on the sundeck or a traditional massage - the perfect way to start the day. Before heading back to port this morning we explore the beautiful Sung Sot cave (Surprise Grotto), which is 10,000m² and consists of two major chambers. These spectacular chambers are spacious enough to hold thousands of people.



On arrival back into Hanoi mid-afternoon we’ll explore the maze of streets in the French Quarter by cyclo (rickshaw), taking in highlights such as the Opera house and Ly Thai To park. We then swap our wheels for a leisurely walk through ‘36 streets of the old quarter’, named after the numerous guilds that once set up shop on a particular street from silk tailors to traditional medicine shops.



Later this evening there's a chance to freshen up before boarding the train (4 berth sleeper cabin, basic standard) on the ‘Reunification Express’ railway line to Hue. An option to fly from Hanoi to Hue is also available.

icon Day 5 : Hue

Location:

  Hue


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch


Today we take in the highlights of Hue. Upon arrival we embark on a guided sightseeing tour of the 19th-century Nguyen empire capital. We visit the Thien Mu Pagoda, home to the oldest monastery in the city, whose 21m high tower has become something of a symbol for Hue and the citadel. Within the citadel is the Imperial Purple Palace, an exact copy of the Forbidden City in Beijing, with its impressive ramparts, formal moats and imperial palaces, some of which lay in ruin.



In the countryside lies the Royal Tombs of the Nguyen kings, here we’ll view the elaborate mausoleum of Emperor Tu Duc. As the sun sets there's an optional cruise in a long boat along the gentle Perfume River, beautifully illuminated at night.

icon Day 6 : Hoi An

Location:

  Hội An


Meals Included:

  Breakfast


Hue - Road of the Ocean Clouds - Hoi An. Today we take the scenic Hai Van Pass (Road of the Ocean Clouds), which offers magnificent views of beaches to one side and lush hills to the other. En route we stop for a walk along China beach. Perhaps enjoy a refreshing swim in the sea before continuing our journey south to Hoi An.



The charming, old-world trading port of Hoi An with it cobbled streets, traditional homes and tiny shop houses is a perfect place to lose yourself in a by gone era. Boutique restaurants, hip cafes along the waterfront, delightful craft shops and artisans including some of Asia’s best bespoke tailors (whose services come at a nominal price), all can be found here.



On a short walking tour of the enchanting historical town, we’ll visit the Chua Ong Pagoda, Chinese Assembly Hall, 200-year-old Tam Ky house, former merchants’ homes and the 400 year-old Japanese Covered Bridge.



During your stay in Hoi An, we offer a unique optional Hoi An Street Eats add-on, which explores the city’s most popular local haunts. Cruise the city the way the locals do, by vintage Vespa and enjoy lots of tasty Vietnamese Cuisine. Book early with your reservation consultant, as numbers are limited.

icon Day 7 : Hoi An

Location:

  Hội An


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch


This morning we set off on a leisurely bike ride through the countryside to Tra Que village. Here we discover age old farming practices and learn about traditional medicine.

icon Day 8 : Hoi An

icon Day 9 : Can Tho

Location:

  Can Tho


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch


Hoi An - Ho Chi Minh City. Early morning flight to Ho Chi Minh City. Drive to the Mekong Delta. Often referred to as the ‘rice bowl’ of Vietnam, the fertile Mekong Delta is famous for its abundant harvests of tropical fruits, flowers and rice, as well as it fantastic views while boating along the canals. Taking our sampan from Cai Be we cruise through the maze of waterways watching the hubbub of daily life on the river. Passing colourful trading boats, house boats and children swimming we stop to visit some of the local cottage industries that produce popcorn, coco candies and paper along the way. Lunch is served today in a traditional wooden home on Dong Hoa Hiep Island.

icon Day 10 : Ho Chi Minh City

Location:

Once called the Pearl of the Orient, modern Ho Chi Minh City is a thriving metropolis on the move. Sleek sky scrapers, gourmet restaurants, designer malls and swanky bars and spas are scattered between ancient pagodas, colonial era landmarks and lively street markets. On a walking tour of Ho Chi Minh City we'll see the Notre Dame Cathedral and the Old Post Office before visiting the sobering War Remnants Museum. Evening at leisure.

Ho Chi Minh City – Cu Chi. This morning we visit the famous Cu Chi Tunnels used by the Viet-Cong in their struggle to keep control of the region during the 1960’s. After a short video presentation we take an exciting walk around the many bush trails and see trapdoors, booby traps, living areas, weapon factories and kitchens that were used and lived in during the war. We can also safely crawl through sections of the tunnels, that have been widened for the tourists and stand in the middle of bomb craters that are still just as defined as the day they were created. At the end of the visit you can opt to fire weapons of the era (including the M16 ‘s and AK47) on the firing range.

Next we explore Giac Lam Pagoda, Ho Chi Minh City’s oldest and one of its most beautiful temples.



Later on we take a journey through Vietnam’s medical history at the FITO Museum. This is Vietnam’s first traditional medicine museum with an amazing collection of over 3000 items.

Amazing! His attention to detail was outstanding, he would make sure we were already checked in and air con's were on in our rooms on arrival.

He would adjust the itinerary to give us time to refresh as it was so hot some days.

He even walked me to a chemist in Hanoi when we had free time as I was feeling unwell.

This means you must receive the full dosage of the COVID-19 vaccine and allow a minimum of 14 days before travelling in order for immunity to take effect. ?Each COVID-19 vaccine has different dosages and time frames for inoculation, so please check the related medical advice associated with your vaccine. We will not accept?travellers?on trips?who have received only a partial dose (for example, one part of a two-dose vaccination) of?a?vaccine.

    Children?under 18 years of age are not currently required to provide any COVID-related documentation to travel with On The Go Tours.

    If you are unwilling or unable to be vaccinated for medical reasons, you may apply for an exemption. Exemptions will be assessed on an individual basis. To apply, you must provide supporting documentation from a medical professional. In addition, those who qualify for a medical exemption are still required to produce proof of a negative test in the form of written documentation (in English) conducted no more than 72 hours before day 1 of their trip, the details of which need to be emailed to info@onthegotours.com prior to the commencement of your trip.

    Traveller health information will be kept securely and only retained in compliance with the retention schedules of privacy laws and regulations. Proof of COVID-19 immunisation must be provided to us no less than 4 weeks prior to travel. We accept COVID-19 digital certificates, vaccination record cards, or COVID passes. Alternatively, vaccination history can be uploaded by travellers directly via our traveller login. The information you will need to upload includes: Administering national authority or government, document No, name of Vaccine, date/s of vaccination.

    Failure to provide proof of vaccination 4 weeks prior to travel could result in the cancellation of your booking with no recourse for refund or compensation. The pertinent documentation may also be checked at the welcome meeting on Day 1 of the Tour, and at various intervals during your stay. Our highest priority is the health and safety of our travellers, leaders, crew, suppliers, and local communities. We have a duty of care to ensure our travellers safety. By making the decision that travellers with an elevated risk of serious disease from COVID-19 must be fully vaccinated prior to travel with us, we are reducing the risk of harm to those travellers. In addition, as an ethical tour operator, we have a responsibility to ensure that we are not adding additional and avoidable strain to any country’s healthcare system.
