Explore a Vietnam away from the tourist trail, where life goes on as it has for centuries. Take a boat through the villages of the mighty Mekong Delta and visit a traditional floating market. Watch master craftsmen at work – a traditional calligrapher in Ho Chi Minh City and a water puppeteer in Hanoi. Discover the hidden corners, ancient traditions and contrasting histories of these two great cities. Meet the tribes of the Central Highlands and admire their traditional architecture. Discover ancient traditional villages and illustrious little-seen temples and pagodas, as you unlock the true essence of Vietnam.

Mark Pettengel & Jo Martin , Tailormade Vietnam & Cambodia
A well-planned itinerary that crammed an impressive amount into 16 days, without ever feeling rushed. Cambodia and Vietnam are both fantastic destinations, offering stunning natural scenery and beautifully preserved historical sites, together with truly delightful and welcoming people. Our guides made our trip extraordinary, weaving their personal histories in to the many insights they gave us of two countries that have experienced such difficult pasts.
Erika & Robert Hollingdale , Tailormade Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam
Our holiday to Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam with Travel the Unknown was a huge success. We had a fascinating itinerary, well-informed and friendly guides who really looked after us, and lovely accommodation. Every time there was a change of vehicle or guide, the next one was always there and waiting. All stages of the planning and booking process were efficiently done, so all we had to do was enjoy it!

TTU created a first class tailor made tour for my sister and I. We couldn't have had better service, from the tour guides, the hotel, the cruise and even the transport between places.
