We really enjoy this part of the process – it’s artistic and challenging. The purpose is to provide you with a perfect itinerary – one which fits your requirements precisely. Here’s how we do it, and how we work out the price.


First step: we design the programme – there are three components to consider:


The locations you want to visit


We begin together with your preferences, and add our native knowledge about routes, infrastructure and native situations to build them into an itinerary that balances value for cash with the minimal of wasted time. If you don’t have explicit locations in mind, we’ll make suggestions for you to consider and change as you want – there’s plenty of information on our website, and we’ve a large database of locations and native knowledge that can assist you to choose.


The type of hotels you like


Although Vietnam isn’t a developed country, there’s a good range of accommodation starting from the luxurious luxury of Hanoi’s Metro pole and Danang’s Furama Resort, to a humble family stilt house with an ‘al fresco’ toilet and a communal sleeping room. Lots of our customers like to mix ‘roughing it’ in homestays and out-of-the-means locations with a few nights in a comfortable city hotel or a luxurious resort hotel on a beach.


We do not have ‘particular deals’ that favour some hotels in particular. You possibly can select whatever you want – we’ll all the time guide the best room available at the level you choose.


The transport that you prefer to


We work laborious to make sure not solely worth for cash, but additionally worth for time!


That is the place the tour designer’s skill involves the fore. The transport infrastructure in Vietnam is comparatively limited. International-standard roads are rare, and the railway is single track. For a lot of places, travel by highway is the one sensible method of getting around.


The objective is an itinerary that minimizes travel time and maximizes fascinating attractions. We’ll give you the standard and type of transport you like, and the best route, and are usually able to provide options.


In fact, some things are past our management – domestic flight times, accommodation availability, or the prevailing climate, for example.


Second step: we work out the price – one other three parts


The number of individuals traveling.


Generally talking, the more folks, the lower the price. However, for our tours, the differential is less than those of other corporations, because our revenue margins are a lot decrease than average. Whether or not the numbers of travelers is odd and even makes a distinction: there’s hardly any single accommodation in Vietnam, so people often must pay for a double room. Some hotels provide ‘family’ rooms or provide a third bed for a complement, but that is under no circumstances universal.


How lengthy you want to remain


Obviously, the extra days, the higher the cost. However, our tour designers are skilled at avoiding further costs arising from early ‘check-ins’ and late departures from hotels wherever doable, and juggling tour parts and technique of transport to maximize the usage of the time available and the value of the experience.


The level of lodging you prefer


As in many nations, the hotel classification standards in Vietnam are based mostly on services rather than intangible factors corresponding to service and ambiance. Probably the most stars and/or highest value don’t automatically assure the best accommodation in your needs.


We now have our own grading system primarily based on a mix of occasional inspections and feedback from visitors. We use a ‘worth for money’ criteria: it’s very subjective, in fact – we’ll make suggestions, but the alternative is yours.


Third step: the total cost 


We rely all of the costs and add a maximum of 30% to the total. This is our revenue margin. The business average is considerably greater, but you may find it troublesome to compare because only a few firms disclose the amount they add on – try asking just a few!


The figure we quote are always firm – we don’t inflate it for negotiating, and we don’t haggle.


Fourth step: e-mail the outcome 


We’ll do all this within 24 hours and ship you a draft itinerary to consider

The subsequent step is up to you!
