Pin It
Most Americans are familiar with recent Vietnamese history, but few are aware of the far-reaching—and fascinating—roots of this South Asian gem.

Join VBT for a comprehensive look at Vietnam, experiencing both vibrant modern cities and tranquil rural life as we walk our way from the bustling, tree-lined boulevards of Hanoi and Saigon … to the ancient cobblestone lanes of Hoi An’s charming Old Town … to the unpaved streets of sleepy fishing villages in the Mekong Delta. And everywhere we venture, we’ll meet the warm, welcoming Vietnamese people, enjoying an unforgettable, firsthand look at local life and culture.

What To Expect

This tour features easy terrain mixed with a few hills. We walk primarily on footpaths and rural roads, which may be rough and uneven at times. Our VBT on-tour support vehicle is available at specific meeting points for those who need assistance. It is ideal for both enthusiastic beginners and experienced walkers. Several of the walks require a transfer from our hotel to the start of the walk. Our tour leaders often use this time in the van for our morning route review, so we can enjoy a more leisurely morning at breakfast.
