icon Day 8 : Halong Bay

Location:

  Hạ Long Bay


Meals Included:

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 10: Hue

Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch


Arriving to Hue 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 and here we’ll view the elaborate mausoleum of Emperor Tu Duc. As the sun sets take an optional cruise in a long boat along the gentle Perfume River, beautifully illuminated at night or enjoy some retail therapy at Dong Ba Market.

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.

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 and visit peaks of the Marble Mountain. Reaching the summit of Thuy Son Mountain (Mountain of Water), we enter the naturally formed grottoes-cum- Buddhist sanctuaries. The enormous cathedral like Huyen Khrong cave is illuminated by shards of light and the towering seated Buddha carved from the rock face is spectacular.
Onward 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.

Lunch is served today in a traditional wooden home on Dong Hoa Hiep Island.

icon Day 15 : Ho Chi Minh City

Location:

  Ho Chi Minh City


Meals Included:

Can Tho - Ho Chi Minh City. Early today we visit the ever lively Cai Rang floating market. Watch as melons, pineapples, fresh greens, sacks of rice and children's toys get tossed from one sampan to another at great heights and speed before driving back to Ho Chi Minh City. 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.

We later come face to face with the horrors of the Pol Pot regime as we visit Toul Sleng (Security Prison - S21), a school that was gruesomely transformed into a torture chamber under the Khmer Rouge, and visit the Killing Fields where over 10,000 people were executed.

This afternoon we explore iconic Angkor Wat, easily the most famous and best-preserved of all temples within the Angkor complex. It is a massive three-tiered structure crowned by five lotus-like towers rising 65 meters from ground level.

Tuan was a fantastic guide, knowledgeable and dedicated.

He offered exactly the right amount of information: enough so we would have the context and understanding without overloading us with information so the main point get lost.

We gave us very good advise for "extra" activities such as massage place, tailor place, etc.

He was always ready to help and did the extra bit to turn a very nice vacation into a fantastic one.

I was delighted with this brilliant tour.

Tuan has such expert knowledge which had taught me so much about Vietnam.

He was meticulous in his arrangements of the tour.

Everything was to timed perfectly, right down to smallest detail.

I must also say that he is the kindest most caring young man with an extremely humorous personality which endeared us all to him.

This tour exceeded all my expectations and I cannot thank you enough for a fantastic experience.

Our tour of Vietnam was terrific - due in large part to our tour guide, Hung Do.

Hung is the best guide I have experienced anywhere.

Here are some of the things he did that made the trip terrific.

Within about 5 minutes he knew who we all were (19 of us) and where we were from.

It was clear he had studied in advance.

He was exceptionally well organised; he always reminded us of the plan for the next day, where we would be, what the weather report was, what to bring, and challenges ahead.

And he repeated the information to be sure we all had it! His knowledge of history and geography of the country is excellent.

And his personal stories added to the richness of the experience.

Hung is highly proficient in English; he always made himself clear and was able to answers all questions.

He would be a wonderful model for other guides in this area! Hung was always available for questions and trouble-shooting.

Even when we didn't realise he was around (e.

g.

, at dinners), I found him in the background making sure all was ok - e.

g.

, orders were understood, food needs were respected, etc.

Hung's personal touches were so appreciated.

He checked on how people were feeling, made sure we had water, planned in advance to address any potential challenges, and made individual recommendations to help us planning each day.

Finally (though I could go on and on) Hung's sense of humor and friendly personality made long days of touring lighter.

He was engaging and remarkably up-beat throughout all 10 days.

Please extend my sincere thanks to Hung for a wonderful, memorable trip through Vietnam.

The whole trip to all 3 countries, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia was absolutely fantastic.

It was everything I thought it would be and more.

The places we saw were amazing and participating in local activities such as planting rice plants in Laos and cycling to a local farm in Vietnam to help plant vegetables were the highlights of my tour.

Visiting Halong Bay was breathtaking.

The trip was a success due to the professionalism of the local guides used who took such a pride in advising about their country and sharing their knowledge.

All guides had their good attributes and certainly knew about their country but Tuan in Vietnam was outstanding.

There was 19 people in our group and within 10 minutes he knew each one of us by name and any allergies excetra we had and he never forgot them.

He ensured all restaurants were aware of any special needs.

He was simply the best guide and used his great sense of humour to entertain us.

On The Go tours were very well run and the organisation was plain to see.

We had no issues whatsoever and I felt very safe and well looked after at all times.

I would highly recommend this tour to anyone thinking about touring South East Asia on a group tour.

There was such a lot to see that we were literally 'on the go' most of the time and although exhausted I would not change anything as it was simply brilliant.

I would also like to vote for Tuan for a guide of the year award.

He was a great ambassador for Vietnam and 'On The Go'.

We found Chenda to be very dedicated to her guide position in her home town of Siam Reap.

Chenda's local knowledge and ability to impart that knowledge to us was exemplary.

Not only did she impart fact, Chenda also told her own personal stories with humour and sincerity.

Chenda's kindness was the quality that really stood out, in the way she assisted people around the various sites.

The only negatives were that the flight from Hoi An to Saigon was far too early ( had to get up at 3am) and the next days travelling was far too long.

Don't think anybody enjoyed the next day.

The free time on the last day was also severely reduced.

We think that this was caused by the delay in the flight to Siam Reap however we were looking forward to free time for buying gifts etc.

Excellent and interesting tour.

All guides knowledgeable and informative with John being by far the best.

Only criticism would be that I prefer smaller groups - there were over 20 people in Vietnam and Cambodia.

Also, would prefer not so much emphasis on spending time having lunch and latterly I felt we were on the bus too much.

Flights out were fine although we had problems with the catering.

I requested vegetarian meals both on the flights and on the tour.

Although the tour guides were aware of our dietary requirements and they were all very good at ensuring that our requirements were met, the airlines were not informed of our dietary requirements.

KLM staff were very helpful in trying to accommodate our requirements with one cabin attendant giving us some of his meal! less....

    To travel with On The Go Tours all travellers over the age of 18 must provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination, unless travelling to the following destinations: Croatia, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Greenland, Iceland, Lithuania, Norway, Poland and Turkey. We recognise any vaccine that has been authorised for use?in the country where the vaccine was administered.?This includes vaccines such as AstraZeneca, Pfizer-BioNtech, Sinopharm, Sinovac, Sputnik, Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, and?Covaxin.

    In all cases, you?must be fully inoculated. 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.

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.
