Trails of Vietnam

Scooter heaven!

5
Viet Nam is a stunning country full of breathtaking scenery, friendly people and a rich and colourful history and culture. This trip packs a lot of punch into the two weeks and covers just about all of the main highlights the country has to offer. This is due to a very well organised itinerary and great organisational skills from the group leader. The food was the best I've tasted anywhere in the world and the variety and freshness of the dishes was huge. If you like seafood this is the place to visit! Got to mention the local beers as well - each region produces its own local beer so the trip from start to finish is a great beer tour! The hiking, cycling and kayaking were all excellent and amid some of the most amazing and varied scenery that I've experienced. This was topped off by visits to some excellent pagodas and temples and famous landmarks throughout. I stayed for an extra week after the end of the trip to visit the beaches and even after three weeks in Viet Nam I still didn't want to return home!

An Amazing trip

5
This holiday is non stop from the first to the last day with some amazing experiences. Its an excellent way to see Vietnam - it would take two months to pack in what we did in two weeks! The organisation was excellent and despite not having much free time we never felt rushed and had time to enjoy every experience with a great group of fellow travellers.

Wonderful holiday

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Vietnam and would highly recommend it to others. The trip was a great way to see as much of this compelling country as possible in two weeks, and a fantastic balance of culture and activity.

Fantastic trip

5
We had a great trip on our trip around Vietnam. Seeing and experiencing what felt like a very authentic Vietnamese experience. This trip put you right into the Vietnamese culture and not just the 'touristy' parts either. You got to see a lot of the path less travelled. Excercise wise, it was great, nothing to hard and the group worked at a nice leisurely pace. Biggest day by far is the trek around the northern Vietnamese mountains but again, plenty of rest stops etc. If there was only one thing that could be improved, because the trip is so action packed you do get pretty tired, there is a few hours here and there to just sit down and relax but no substantial 'free time' so go in expecting to be busy a fair bit.

This must be the best Exodus holiday I've experienced. First of all a great bunch of fellow travellers make the trip; we all got on very well from the outset. Vinh, the tour leader was very well organised, always knew what was going on and made sure we also knew the 'plan' for the present and following days. Hotels and homestays were of good quality and we were very well looked after wherever we were. Included food was usually excellent and abundant, a slimming holiday it was not! Our leader arranged optional meals at local restaurants; again, the food was varied but always of a high quality. In travelling in and between Hanoi, Ha Long, Hue, Danang, Hoi An and Saigon, we were exposed to the history and culture of this country. Our guide was very well informed about historical events which has shaped Vietnam. A good bit of walking, a little bit of paddling and some mad cycling composed the active part of the holiday. I was disappointed with so little kayaking but this was somewhat mitigated by the tremendous views in Ha Long bay.

Great trip to discover Vietnam but NOT an active holiday! All the activities are done at a very leisurely pace with stops all the time. You'll be busy discovering Vietnam during the days but you'll always have lots of free time in the evenings, which i found very disappointing. I hope Exodus will review the level of this holiday package. I picked this trip because it was listed as an active holiday with different kind of activities "On foot, in the saddle, with paddle - active the length of Vietnam". However, this is not true: there is only one day trekking with 17km done. The rest is just about 1h - 1h30 walks there and then visiting places. As for the kayaking, there is only a 2h kayaking included in the Halong Bay. There is the option to pay for additional kayaking in Hoi An which is much better than the one on the Halong Bay. It should be included in the trip. As for the cycling, there are four days that involves cycling: two very small bike rides (less than 20km...) in Hue and two great rides along the Mekong Delta (about 40km). But 40km is not much to do especially if this is the only thing planned to do for the day.

Just the best tour I've ever done

5
I picked this trip because it was a great blend of cycling, hiking, sight seeing, shopping and kayaking for a 2 week tip in Vietnam. I loved that we got to get out of the cities and walk amongst the hill tribes of Northwestern Vietnam or cycle amongst the farmers and fishermen of the Mekong Delta. But I also appreciated all our city stops to experience the different characters and cuisine of the cities throughout Vietnam. It was also fun that transportation varied from buses to boats to ships... This trip was just a fantastic blend of activities and exercise.

Trails of Vietnam - April

5
A full-on enjoyable trip with an interesting mix of sightseeing and activity - would highly recommend. The itinerary enables you to learn a lot about this rapidly developing country - it's history and current development, with interesting contrasts between city life and rural life. There is almost no free time on this trip, but that's the only way to fit so much into two weeks! The Vietnamese people are friendly and welcoming and the trip is interesting and enjoyable from start to finish.
