What you can expect
We are the perfect blend of luxury and local.
We keep the groups small so we can give you the personal attention and luxury experience you deserve. The group size is a max of 10 travellers.
You will have the best experience if you are walking and exploring the cities that we visit. With traffic, especially in Hanoi, it is much more efficient to walk as opposed to a taxi or van. Often we will have lunch at a food stall or local market, have a street snack or stop for a refreshment and people watch for a bit.
We ensure you have the best guides when we take our food tours or hike the mountains of Sapa, and explore the countryside.
Our days wrap up at the hotel, in luxury and relaxation before we head out as a group for an always delicious evening meal.
The Dining Experiences
A wonderful breakfast is included at our hotels. This is the perfect way to set us up for the day as we head out to explore. Our lunches are often at small local eateries, stalls, or street food.
We want you to experience the best food that Vietnam has to offer and often that means the small family run restaurant.
Our evening meals are more refined and we search out restaurants that give you a unique, yet delicious experience.
