Many travellers worry about finding a legitimate company to provide Vietnam tour packages that perfectly meet their ideas of an amazing Vietnam holiday. Follow these tips to get your Vietnam trip just right.
Create your Vietnam wish list
To know which Vietnam tour packages might best meet your needs, you first need to know what you want to get out of your trip. Vietnam is an unexpectedly huge country, so depending on how much time you have, you might want to choose a particular region to focus on. Your choice might depend on the time of year you want to travel – the north of Vietnam can get cooler, while the south is sub-tropical. Once your wish list is sorted, you’re ready to find Vietnam tour packages that might fit your needs.
Mainstream or off-the-beaten-track?
Decide whether you want to tick all the most popular Vietnam locations off your list, or if you want to veer off a little to have some unexpected adventures. Different Vietnam tour operators and travel agencies specialise in specific types of travel, so you’ll want to choose a provider that is good at delivering the kind of trip you imagine.
Choose a reputable company
Many travellers worry about scams or Vietnam travel companies that over-promise and under-deliver. This can be even more of a concern if you’re booking from home, when you can’t physically visit the company you’re interested in working with. If you put in a little bit of time to do some research, you’ll feel a lot more confident about making your booking. In particular, look out for companies that have credentials for operating travel experiences. See how long a company has been in business for – if you can verify that a business has been operating for a number of years, it’s likely to be a good company. In addition, look for trustworthy and independent traveller reviews on websites such as TripAdvisor. If a company has a lot of reviews – and you like what travellers are saying – you’ll have yet more confidence in the companies running the Vietnam tour packages you’re interested in.
Once you’ve found a company you’d like to book your Vietnam tour package with, make sure you book directly with that company. This reduces the risk of being caught up in problems with intermediary companies who don’t actually run the tours themselves. Some of the best tour companies in Vietnam are locally or family run, so booking directly with them means the money you spend is going directly back into the local economy – important if you’re a believer of responsible travel.
