FAQ - General Questions

How many people are on a tour with me?

Our tour groups average around 12 - 16 people.  We have run Special Request tours with as few as 3 clients and a couple of tours with 20 clients.

Is it possible to purchase a land-only arrangement?

Yes it is.  We call it a Ground Only Tour.  You would meet the tour group in our arrival city and depart the tour in our departure city.  You would be responsible for getting yourself to and from Vietnam.

Although it is called a Ground Only Tour, it will include all airline flights within Vietnam that the tour is scheduled to take. Everything listed on our itinerary would be included except for:

  • International roundtrip airfare from our west coast gateway.
  • Vietnam Visa Processing and fees.
  • Trip Cancellation/Interruption Insurance may not be available.

Please contact us if you have any additional questions.

Are your tours available for Foreigners?

Yes they are!  We have had clients join us from Australia, Canada, Finland, Germany, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, South Africa and the United Kingdom.  We have also had inquiries from Guatemala, Hong Kong and Switzerland.

We will quote you a price for our "Ground Only Tour."  See above.

Is it possible to stop along the way to visit places that are important to me?
YES!  We take great pride in getting our clients to the places they need to visit.  Each tour is customized to the participants on the trip.  The itineraries listed are our starting point.  Once you sign up and send in your Special Request Form, we start adding additional locations into the itinerary.
Do you have any tours that go to Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City)?

Yes, some of our tours do go to Saigon.

Many of our tours are in the I-Corps area and as such they do not go through Saigon.  About twice a year we do have a tour that does go to Saigon (please check our itineraries for those tours).

We can also provide you with what we call a Break-Away tour.  If you are on one of our non-Saigon tours, during the last 3 or 4 days you would leave that tour, and along with one of VBTours tour guides, you would fly to Saigon to visit the locations that you want to see.

This link below will take you to our Previous Tours page which shows some of our past Saigon itineraries.

Please contact us if you have any additional questions.

Will I have time on my own?

You will have time on your own.  The amount of time depends upon the tour and what cities we are in.

Will I face any hostility because of the war?

You will be surprised by the warmth of your reception.  The Vietnamese live in the present and the future, the war is history.  They warmly welcome people from all countries and races.

Is the electricity different in Vietnam?

YES - Countries in the North America, parts of Central and South America, the Caribbean and parts or Pacific operate on 110 Volt / 60 Hz, while the rest of the world operates on 220 Volt / 50 Hz.  In general, 110V includes voltage range of 100-125V and 220V includes 220-250V.  Many countries operate on both 110V and 220V.  Some hotels in Vietnam have dual voltage, but many use only 220V.

As mentioned above, not only does the voltage differ within countries but so does frequency (cycles per second).  Countries use either 60 Hz (USA) or 50 Hz (VN).
