  • Katherine Sanderson

    Are the driving hours & traveling hours of the tours including the stops?
    The hours in brackets each day of this tour, are this driving hours or travelling hours including stops? Would there be some time along the way to walk around or would it be mainly in the car? I would like to know since I would not want to book a trip where we would be in the car for most of the day/week and cannot much enjoy the nature/beautiful scenery outside of the car.

    • Laura - Viet Vision Travel

      The specific hours I note is mentioned for the driving time, I quite understand that this is the full meaning of the excursions, this is not a simple transfer by bus J. It is sure that you will ask the guide/car for stopover any place to break time or take stunning photos along the way. Depending the distance & the time table, our guide will allow you stops to take photo/relax maximally.

  • James Morgan

    Is 2-day tour in Sapa very touristy?
    Will the two days in Sapa area be very touristy or would we escape the crowds and sellers to remote areas?

    • Laura - Viet Vision Travel

      I strongly recommend you to take the remote ethnic villages around Sa Pa, these villages were banned for the tourists & new open to welcome the tourists with the fixed permission letter. in order to visiting them, we need to take the letter & have a local guide to lead your party with the inevitable escorted guide to meander the small routes to reach them. So the price is higher but the landscape is wonderful & natural. You will hunt the best moments there. That is the main reason for no discount the price. Evenly I offer to not increase it.

  • Amy Power

    Is Nature and outdoor activities included in tour program?
    Would there be time to have some walks/hikes during this tour in general since we love nature and outdoor activities?

    • Laura - Viet Vision Travel

      Sure. The tour is flexible for your party to break time to walk around/hike… don’t forget we need to have visit some ethnic villages along the way.. you need to walk to reach them.

  • Phoebe Herbert

    Will the driver stop for some photos?
    Would there also be time to take photos since I love photography. Can I stop the driver if I would like to take a photo along the road?

  • Bradley Hall

    Ban Doc or Ban Gioc Waterfalls?
    You mention Ban Doc waterfalls. Are they also called Ban Gioc waterfalls? The same waterfalls? I would be interested in Ban Gioc Waterfalls.

    • Laura - Viet Vision Travel

      It is Ban Gioc waterfall. Sometimes the local people call Ban Doc by misspell. This is the same, my dear

  • Harley Harvey

    Is the meal included in tour program?
    What would this tour cost including meals? Just to know which would be the better deal for us.

    • Laura - Viet Vision Travel

      Please find the revised price in the file. I am delighted to send to you.

  • Brandon Harrison

    Are Ha Giang tours worth for a week?
    Do you think it would be better just to focus on Ha Giang for a week or actually the 2nd version can be easily done and it is well worth to go for the 2nd version? Of course if we can get a better picture of the North, from the west to the east that would be great. Yet I would not want to go for that in case it affects the quality of the trip.

    • Laura - Viet Vision Travel

      I really advise you to take the second version package. The trip well merge all outstanding mountainous landscapes & you will have more many chances to touch the new, strangle, wild sites than be stick in Ha Giang.
      One thing you should focus, the beginning of October Ha Giang & other places on the west east north of Viet Nam will be less attracted than the September. If possible, you should take the trip within this month. The nice flower ( Tam Giac Mach – the symbol of Ha Giang) always blooms fully on September & Sapa is often covered the yellow rice paddy terraces. Both of them will make your photos brighter.

  • Louie Chamberlain

    Can I pay the tour in cash?
    Last but not least. I do have US$ in cash which I want to use up. Can I pay the trip in cash? We would arrive in Hanoi two or three days earlier before the tour starts so I could pay you then in advance. I look like it would be very beginning of October. So still quite a few months away.

    • Laura - Viet Vision Travel

      Please don’t push me a difficult case. All services only proceed if all customer confirm by paying the deposit. The deposit will help both of us to secure the services. As you know the guide for the mountainous tour needs to book the experienced & mature one for riding your trip smoothly. We can’t keep him if there is no guarantee from you.
      I think that I have a better idea, you will pay the deposit with 30% of total tour. The balance will be flexible to pay in cash in Hanoi.

  • Joao Ribeiro Martins

    7 days for northeast tour and Halong overnight cruise?
    Can I be enough time to visit Northeast tour and Ha Long Bay overnight cruise with 7 days?

    • Angela - Viet Vision Travel

      No, you cannot. I am afraid that you are not enough time to cover these places within 7 days. You should have at least 8 – 9 days. Within 7 days, you should visit Ha Long Bay day trip instead of overnight cruise.

  • Ryan Cardoso Melo

    For adventure tours, will we overnight home stay or at hotel?

    • Angela - Viet Vision Travel

      With a adventure tour, you often visit village or trekking, therefore, home stay at local house is normal.

  • Amelie Loewenthal

    Homestay for adventure tours in Vietnam?
    Is there any homestay in Mai Chau? I’d like to spend one night in the house-on-stilt if it’s available.

    • Angela - Viet Vision Travel

      Yes, homestay in Mai Chau is one of the most interesting homestay in the north of Vietnam. With Viet Vision Travel, we arrange homestay at Pom Coong Village, less touristy than Lac village offered by other tour operators. You will spend the night in a house-on-stilt in a local Thai family with separate mosquito net, mattress, blanket and pillow.

      yes, from Dong Van to Meo Vac, you will pass the amazing Ma Pi Leng Pass, it’s one of the most 4 stunning passes in Vietnam. The scenery is spectacular with mountain, forest and surround by a river in the foot of the mountain. For sure you will have a great chance for photo shot in this pass.

    • Stephen

      The best hotels available in this remote area is: Truong Xuan Resort in Ha Giang and Hoa Cuong Hotel in Meo Vac. They’re our frequent-used hotels for our clients, the room and its facilities are good compare to all others. However, please do not expect for 4* or 5* International hotels in the area as they’re all local standard.

      Sorry but the 4-seater car is not suitable for mountainous trip as we will have many sharp curves and high pass on the way which is not suitable for 4-seater car.

  • Will there be any rice planted in the terraces at that time of year? And how will be the weather in March?

    • Tracey

      Actually Ha Giang is more of a corn growing area (terraced corn) than rice. There is rice grown in a few of the districts in Ha Giang, but it’s in flatter area. The spectacular views are in the corn growing area. If you really want rice, go to Lao Cai/Sapa. May is good for lush green everywhere in northern Vietnam where there are rice terraces, Sapa and Ha Giang in particular. As for your case, Greening up nicely by the end of March.
