Overview
Walking in beaten track areas that helps you have more insights of locally daily life of Vietnamese people, it’s very much different from what you’ve seen on main streets in city centre. Saigonese people have lived in those areas for decades, their houses have been passed from generation to generation, you’ll see an ancestor alter at such very small house. Community ties are very strong in these alleys where most people know one others very well as a slogan said neighbor is closer than far relative. You have chances to talk with local people about their daily life. And this helps you understand partly about Saigon history during 1960s, especially Tet Offensive 1968

We have done two cycle tours with Tropical Journeys and both were flawless. Our first trip (January, 2016) was cycling through Thailand, Cambodia and the Me Kong Delta and the second (May, 2018) was from Ho Chi Minh City to Hue. All our tour guides were well informed and prompt to respond to any requests for information or support. They ensured the bikes were in great condition and were very attentive to safety, as were the drivers of our van as a result I felt safer there than on the roads back home and indeed I am quite sure that I was. Hotel accommodations were excellent in all cases. Some very memorable spots. Clean, spacious and often beautiful views from our windows. The food was superb, fresh and quite varied wherever we stopped. I actually felt that I became healthier with every passing day so rest assured whether it is a formal restaurant or roadside stop that you are in a good place to try the local cuisine. We have travelled on every continent except Antarctica and Duc Trinh who runs Tropical Journeys has to be one of the most conscientious and hospitable tour operators we have ever dealt with. There is no one better. My only regret is that I am not back on the road right now with Tropical Journeys and heading out on yet another SE Asia adventure.

Just finished another EXCELLENT tour with Tropical Journeys. This time it was a three-day cycling tour in Mekong Delta. Every day we cycled 30-40km and rode in a dedicated van for the rest of the time. The mountain bikes are in excellent condition. Our guide planned the route so well that we got to see the beautiful rural parts which are usually not available to tourists. We visited lovely islands full of tropical fruit trees, floating markets on the river and vast rice paddies...We enjoyed learning cooking local food in a homestay and passed by a few wedding ceremonies. The accommodations are nice and clean. Our guide and driver always made sure that we were staying hydrated, enjoying snacks such as fresh fruits during breaks and having clean, safe and delicious local food for lunch. They are symply the BEST! Actually this is my second cycling tour with Tropical Journeys. Last May, I did a 11-day trip from Saigon to Hue with friends. It was unforgettable experience. The quality of the service has been very consistent. Highly recommended!

We have just completed a 2 week tour of Vietnam, using Tropical Journeys to map out a personalised itinerary for just four happy travellers. We stayed in excellent quality 4 star accommodation and travelled by bus, train and boat. In every case, the arrangements made by Tropical Journeys worked seamlessly and enriched the quality of our stay. We were taken by Dang on a walking food tour in Hanoi and were the only non-Vietnamese at each place we visited, a 2 night boat trip to Lan Ha Bay (highly recommended as the number of tourist boats is a fraction of those in Ha Long Bay) also hosted by the ever cheerful, riddle-mad Dang, who has to be one of the best tour guides we have ever experienced. Dang then ensured we were safely loaded onto the Reunification Express for our train trip from Hanoi to Hue where the Tropical Journeys experience continued and through to Hoi An over the next few days. We then flew from Da Nang to HCMC where we stayed at The Majestic Hotel (our 5 star experience) and had a fascinating street and laneways tour. It was in HCMC that we met Duc, who had organised the whole trip for us. The personal support we received from him was outstanding. In summary, the sensational work in seamlessly integrating our requirements into a well balanced delightful holiday made it one of the best we have ever experienced. We cannot help singing the praises of Duc and his whole Tropical Journeys team and have already verbally highly recommended them so would like to round that out by letting the TripAdvisor community know of the existence of this pearl of a travel agency in delightful Vietnam.
