Our family trips to Vietnam combine beautiful sightseeing by bicycle with village homestays and magical boat rides around scenic Ha Long Bay, the South China Sea and the Mekong Delta. Vietnam is one of our most popular holiday destinations for families, and you’ll get to immerse youselves in its street life, colour and chaos, glowing lanterns and the freshest flavours.
On our Vietnam family tours, our local guides make travelling easy, unlocking the secrets of South East Asia and bringing its kaleidoscopic cultures vividly to life: there’s the opportunity to play football with villagers; explore a water coconut farm on a boat trip; or be welcomed as guests into a homestay. And on our Chopsticks & Coconuts holiday, we focus Vietnam’s irresistible cuisine.
We went on this trip as a family of four with children aged 12 and 14, over Christmas 2022. We had an absolutely brilliant time and the memories will stay with us forever. Costa Rica just has everything- amazing wildlife, great weather, beautiful scenery, beaches, friendly people, felt very safe and just a wonderful and easy place to be. Without exception the activities were all brilliant especially the hot springs and rafting. Johnny and Victor looked after us incredibly well and really went the extra mile to make sure we had a great time. Johnny clearly has a genuine love for his country and is exceptionally knowledgeable regarding the wildlife. The travelling was all very pleasant and the only bad thing was that the trip had to end! Cannot recommend this trip highly enough if you want a great experience with loads of amazing wildlife, fun and adventure.
Before we went on this amazing trip whenever we were asked where we were going it invariably provoked a “Really…why?” type of response. We’re now much more qualified to answer that question. Firstly, let’s address the 4/5 rating. Don’t get us wrong, this trip was amazing but it’s up against our first Exodus holiday to Costa Rica in Christmas 2019 and that’s a very hard act to follow. Being more cultural, historical and less about animals and adrenaline, this is a far harder holiday to make work with our particular family. Despite this, our time in Jordan was virtually non-stop and we’ve come home with memories that will last our lifetimes. No more comparisons.
