If you're looking for an adventure or a unique cultural experience, our Vietnam tours has something to offer every traveller.
Our Vietnam tours take you to a country full of contrasts, from the beautiful sandy beaches of the south to the esoteric beauty of Halong Bay. We'll also explore the fertile farmland around the Mekong Delta to the hill-tribe forests in the north.
The timeless temples and pagodas stand beside vibrant skylines in Saigon and Hanoi, whilst in cities such as Hue and Hoi An, time seems to have stood still.
The capital Hanoi is the centre of the arts in Vietnam and has world-class museums, theatres and cultural shows while Ho Chi Minh City in the south (which most people still refer to as Saigon) is the business hub of the country, though no less interesting.
The imperial city of Hue along with nearby Hoi An offer an insight into Vietnam's long and interesting past with lots of traditional architecture and much more relaxed feel.
Our carefully put together Vietnam tours guarantee to leave you with a longing to return to Vietnam and whilst our tours do visit the most popular tourist sites, there is lots more to see and do on a return trip!

I thought it was very good we didn't have to worry about anything everything was in order and kept with the schedule as planned, unless we wanted to deviated from it to do somethingelse. The trip really a trip of a life time.
There was a time many years ago that I wanted to travel to Egypt and didn't because of the cost. This trip was, to me, very affordable. I think everyone should experience this trip. The tour guide was alos excellent, Sherif Mohammad.
My contact with Encounters representative was a pleasure, she answered my questions promptly, provided a quotation and changed it quickly when different flights were preferred. Both by e-mail and phone the response was very timely.
I have dealt with Anthony Horrobin on a number of occasions and it is like talking to an old friend on the phone. Anthony is super-efficient and will always go the extra mile to create the perfect trip.
This is our first travel through Encounters Travel and so far the arrangement is working very well. Our travel is not until April 2017 so I am more than hopeful all will continue to run as smoothly as it has so far.
I had an amazing time on the trip. Everything was incredibly well organized and planned out to a tee. Our tour guide, Big Mo, was amazing and super knowledgeable. I couldn't have imagined a better trip to Egypt!
