1.How will I find my tour guide upon my arrival in Vietnam?
Normally, your travel adviser will check it with you before your departure to Vietnam. Your tour guide will wait for you at the exit of the airport / bus station / railway station you arrive at, with a pick-up board with your name. Therefore, please don’t worry about that.
2.What languages can your tour guides speak in Vietnam?
In Vietnam, English-speaking tour guides serve in almost every tourist city and guides who speak other languages are also are available, including French, Italian, German, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnam, Thai, Lao, Cambodian, etc. The tour guides are strictly selected and have received professional trainings, competent, conscientious, whole-hearted, considerate and accommodating.
3.Are tips for tour guides and drivers necessary in Vietnam? If so, how do I tip the tour guide, drivers, or hotel porters?
Generally, you can tip your tour guides, drivers and hotel porters if you feel satisfied with their worked and service, but it is not a common practice to tip restaurant waiters/waitresses or taxi drivers.
4.We are not native English speakers. Is it possible to have a tour guide that speaks our native language?
We will arrange tour guides as per your request if tour guides who can speak your language are available.
5.Is our tour guide the same during all the trip?
Commonly, we arrange local tour guides in every city during every Vietnam tour for two main reasons:
a. Local tour guides are usually much more familiar with their own cities than tour guides from other cities, and you can learn more local tourist information and culture from them. Moreover, they know how to deal with problems in their cities.
b. To save your tour cost. For example, if you want your guide in Hanoi fly to Danang with you, you will have to pay for all of the guide’s costs such as flight ticket, accommodation, meal and tip.
6.What happens if I get sick in Vietnam? Do you refund the tour I currently cannot do?
It depends on what disease you get. If that happens, we will do all we can do to help you with your treatment and settle the problem of refunding as per the terms and conditions of our company. What should be noticed is that, the cost of your hotels, flights, Halong Bay cruise and some other items are anticipated payment, which means these costs will not be refunded.
7.Can tour guides help me to do some shopping? What are the regulations to come back home after?
Yes, your tour guide can help you with shopping during your Vietnam tour, but it may be a problem if the kinds of stuff you buy need repair or go wrong after you return to your country. So it is suggested to confirm whether the brand you buy can be guaranteed to be repaired in your country.
8.Will the tour guide escort me to the airport/hotel?
Yes, we arrange a local tour guide to pick you up at the airport and escort you to your hotels when you arrive in every city in Vietnam, and the guide will also transfer you to the airport for your departure flight. But if you have ever been to Vietnam and prefer to arrange the transfers on your own, please inform us beforehand
8.Can I pay for my Vietnam tour through telephone instead of fax?
It is a pity that we can not take orders from our customers by telephone because we have to relay a formal Credit Card Authorization Form with the customers’ signatures to the Bank of Vietnam. You can scan the payment form and send it to us by e-mail, or fax it directly. Please attach a copy of both sides of your credit card, otherwise, we will have no right to charge money from your card.

12.Do children pay the same fare as adults?
