Full Day - Coffee and food tasting, motorbike ride, ceramics-/knife-making
This tour is for those in a time crunch, but want to maximize their visit to Hanoi. It is led by a Hanoi native, and combines a few "must-dos" in Hanoi, visiting a Craft Village where you can make your own souvenirs, and a few other activities you won't find in your guidebooks or with other large tour companies.
Fun fact: The name "Tonkin" was used in 1883 by the French colonists. It refers to the Red River Delta including the capital city of Hanoi.
Starts at $89 USD per person
4 Days / 3 Nights - Motorbiking, minority homestay, trekking and highland market
In the northernmost region of Vietnam Ha Giang is a remote destination that has been open to tourism for only a few years. This is one of Vietnam’s poorest places, and not being reliant on a strong economy has kept the area pristine and preserved, virtually untouched by the harmful effects of mass tourism and big industry.
The region boasts nature as you have probably never seen it. Massive limestone walls, rice terraces climbing to the clouds, and winding roads carved into the mountainsides.
This alone sounded like a great adventure but combined with the ubiquitous presence of the local hill tribes, mostly proud Black Hmong, this experience is a must do on any Vietnam itinerary.
Fun fact: Ha Giang is both a city and a province that shares a border with China.
Starts at $250 USD per person
2 Days / 1 Night - Kayaking, minority homestay, trekking and waterfalls
In this northern region of Vietnam, Cao Bang is all about water; teal lakes, babbling rivers, rice paddies, and of course, WATERFALLS. Most noteably, visitors come to see Ban Gioc waterfall—the fourth largest waterfall on an international border (after Niagra Falls, Victoria Falls, and Iguazu Falls)—it marks the border between Vietnam and China.
Admire the spectacular mountain scenery and ethnic minory villages that dot the hillsides as we drive along gently winding roads that cut through wide valleys and hug the rivers' edges. During our stops, take advantage of the trekking trails and swim in the clear, cool water of the many ponds, streams, and lakes.
The Chasing Waterfalls Ban Gioc adventure is perfect for those who want to take in all the beauty of Northern Vietnam without the stress of mountain driving.
Fun fact: Hồ Chí Minh made Cao Bang his headquarters upon his return from China in exile in 1941.
Starts at $180 USD per person
