In Sydney the Summer months run from December to February, but warm, beautiful weather can be experienced all year round.

WHERE DOES THE TOUR START AND FINISH?

The Ultimate Vietnam group tour starts in Hanoi and ends on the Ho Chi Minh. 

 

You should book your flights into Hanoi (HAN Airport) and out of Ho Chi Minh (SGN)

 

 

WHO WILL I BE TRAVELLING WITH?

Whether you’re travelling solo or with a mate, you’ll meet like-minded travellers from all over the world on this Vietnam group tour. Group sizes vary with each tour however we like to keep things fun yet personal so you’ll be travelling with no more than 30 others.

DO I NEED VACCINATIONS?

Nobody wants a bowl of Pho, a bite of Bánh Mì or a bite from a mosquito to ruin the trip of a lifetime … so plan ahead and get your vaccinations sorted before you make the trip. This is a rough guide to want you have to plan against with Vietnam in mind and some of the vaccinations listed are taken care of during childhood so check with your GP before you go and book anything, just to make sure you need the jabs!

 

  • Hepatitis A and B – two separate diseases with a vaccination that can be taken together or separately. Both diseases are pretty awful so tick this one off!
  • Typhoid – highly recommended and transmitted by dodgy food or water. Get it and forget about it!
  • Tetanus, Pertussis & Diphtheria – It’s best to have an updated tetanus jab and the others come along with the package.
  • Measles Mumps and Rubella – one of the childhood immunisations that you might not need so check your immunisation record with your GP.
  • Flu – get a flu shot if you think it’s necessary or ask your doctor for more information.
  • Malaria – inland Vietnam has malaria whilst the coast doesn’t.

 

There are a couple more that can be recommended but aren’t essential so we’ll say it again – check with your GP!

Ideally, you should organise all this plus a trip to your GP 6 to 8 weeks before your departure. Some vaccination need 2 or more shots.

CAN I BOOK EXTRA NIGHTS?

If you need additional nights before or after your trip, just add them to your booking when you checkout.

Not sure if you need extra nights? Get in touchto chat with a member of the crew before or after you book.

CAN YOU HELP ME ORGANISE FLIGHTS & INSURANCE?

Sure! We recommend searching and comparing flight prices using Skyscanner.com – get a flight quote.

DO I NEED A VISA?

If you are looking into our Ultimate Vietnam trip then this should point you into the right direction on how to get a visa for travel in Vietnam. It is your responsibility to obtain the correct Visa to enter the country.

 

There are 3 options to obtain your visa:

Option 1: Apply in person or via post at your nearest embassy – means less hassle when arriving in Vietnam, but more expensive.

Option 2: Get a visa on arrival, which requires a visa invitation letter issued by an authorised agent before you leave home – seems a little easier and is also cheaper, but you’ll need to queue up when landing to actually have your visa issued.

Option 3: Apply for an E-Visa online – this is only available to certain nationalities and does not permit you to enter Vietnam through all entry points, only selected ones.

 

Generally no visa is required for travel to Vietnam lasting up to 15 days only if you are from one of the following countries: UK, France, Spain, Germany and Italy.

 

HOW DO I BOOK?

Booking is easy! Select your preferred Vietnam Group Tour departure date, enter your details and we’ll send you a booking confirmation as well as useful information about your tour.

In some cases, yes, and the process is very easy!
