In many aspects of life, my country lags behind countries that developed much earlier, do remember we only opened-up to the outside world in the late 1980’s – this is one of its great charms, but also a concern sometimes for my customers.
You’ll see whole families traveling together on one motorcycle, often with no helmets (or one parent wears the helmet and children are held tight!), women ride side-saddle on the back, the youngest often wearing high heels ready for work or an evening out – and driving techniques generally can be interesting……………… Crossing our busy city roads when faced with a phalanx of Vietnamese of all ages on motorbikes is daunting to the unwary (but there’s a really great technique to crossing our roads, which we’ll happily show you!)
Born and brought up in Vietnam I am so used to our traffic and driving habits(!), but having traveled quite extensively and operating Private Tours for 5 years, I really do understand there is a high expectation of safety and comfort for my discerning visitors from overseas.
I only use drivers who are professionally trained to my stringent requirements and, from the many positive reviews I receive, know my drivers are an integral part of your time with us and ensure your safety and well being at all times.
I use modern air-conditioned vehicles depending on your party size. SUV’s are used in the majority for couples and groups of up to four/five persons. 11 seat, 16 seat mini-buses, and 21 seat coaches are used for larger groups (45 seat coaches can be provided for corporate tours). Each vehicle is usually less than 2 years old, is maintained to manufacturers specifications and is fitted as standard with seatbelts – child safety seats can be provided on request. Each vehicle carries cold bottled mineral water and chilled scented face towels for the duration of your tour.
Please let me know if you have a special requirement, or just want general information about traveling in Vietnam.
