We are very proud of our tailor-made trips in Vietnam but no one says it better than our lovely customers who have tried and tested our holidays. Take a peek at their comments below.
"We were really impressed" - Sarah S, Aug 2022
"We were really impressed with the speed of turnaround when Ha Long Bay had to be cancelled due to bad weather. Within hours we were in Ninh Binh with a whole new exciting schedule We went from feeling slightly disappointed about the Ha Long Bay closure to thinking it may have been a blessing in disguise as the mountain climb, boat ride and new resort were all so great."

"See the most stunning of scenery..." - Gemma H, April 2019
"We had a wonderful trip to Vietnam and our first but hopefully not our last trip with Fleewinter. The booking process was easy and the team was a dream to work with, it felt so bespoke and personal. We absorbed so much more knowledge on the history, culture and people that we would have done had we tried to do it ourselves-something that we had definitely underestimated. All this while enjoying the most stunning scenery." - Gemma H, April 2019

"A real sense of luxury in our honeymoon..." - Feb 2019
"Arranging our holiday couldn't have been simpler. We chatted over the phone and then by email, plus always available when I had queries.

"Another fantastic holiday from Fleewinter - such a shame the weather inferred and disrupted our boat cruise plans however it was great even with a 7 hour time difference Delia was so responsive and rejigged our itinerary.
Responsive, professional, knowledgeable and engaging - all good reasons why I like using Fleewinter." - Sarah G, July 2018
"A country of friendly people..." - July 2018
"Our vacation was splendid!!! Delia was such a pleasure to work with: she was able to translate my ideas into a wonderful adventure holiday with top notch accommodations, first class sightseeing; the perfect blend of action and pampering relaxation.
Add in a few $4 manicures, a Blind Massage, and a country of friendly people - what could be more perfect?" - Joy & Mike H, July 2018
"There wasn't a place we didn't like..." - May 2018
"Vietnam was a great country to visit: there wasn't anywhere we visited that we didn't like. Our favourite destinations were Phong Nha and Hoi An.
The day trek in Phong Nha was fab, this was one of the highlights of our trip along with the cycle tour on the Mekong and the Hoi An region in general.
The motorbike street tour was a great experience, the guides were great, both students so nice to hear about Saigon from their point of view and the food venues were very good!
Delia had great knowledge of the country and what could be done in our timescales and to suit our tastes." - Stacey K, May 2018
"We were very impressed..." - April 2018
"Hanoi was wonderful and the prison well worth a visit. Loved Sapa, both exploring around and the overnight train that took us there. Tailor made clothing in Hoi An was excellent. HCMC was well worth the visit and visiting the Cu Chi tunnels gave us a good flavour of the Vietnam war.
The local guides were very good.
We were impressed with Vietnam and would want to visit again but include Cambodia and Laos." - Suneil K, April 2018
"Wonderful countryside experience..." - April 2018
" All the guides were great, the food was outstanding (loved Morning Glory Restaurant). We would recommend the Hike to waterfall in Quang Nam province - amazing.
We had an overnight train trip that was fab, take the Violette carriage. Delia was very responsive and knowledgeable also great at last minute changes." - Lucy C, April 2018
"Absolutely completely satisfied :-)" - April 2018

"A real insight into the country..." - April 2018
"Great holiday. Very varied. The standard of guiding and driving was good. We enjoyed having different guides in different areas as they gave us a real insight into the country and it’s people. Consistently reliable and punctual. Mai Chau was beautiful and unspoilt and Hanoi was vibrant and buzzing.
We really enjoyed the food in general!" - Juliet & Mike R, April 2018
"Always responded positively to any requests..." - Dec 2018
"Delia always responded quickly and positively to any requests, the hotels selected were perfect choices for our needs, and having the tours and pick ups prearranged was definitely something we would do again." - Barbara R, Dec 2018
"Absolutely seamless..." - Jan 2018
" We absolutely loved this holiday and haven't stopped talking about it since we returned! The whole process from start to finish was absolutely seamless. Delia was superb and answered every question we had with expert knowledge and suggestions. Transports went incredibly smoothly and we would give a 5 star rating to all the accommodations we stayed in.
We really enjoyed every bit of this holiday and it's very difficult to choose favourite things. " - Julie C, Jan 2018
"A super visit to Vietnam" - Dec 2017

A lifetime of memories... June 2017
"Thanks for organising a fantastic holiday to Vietnam.

We have a lifetime of memories and an my icloud rammed with photos. Many Thanks to all involved! - Neil C, June 2017
The best holiday we've had without a doubt... - April 2017
"The best holiday we've had without a doubt. It felt like the kind of holiday we could never afford - VIP treatment. The holiday was ideal for us as it introduced us to a country we had no experience of, and showed the contrasts between city life and country life. Having access to our own guide was brilliant as we ended up eating places we would never have dared to, and we felt we really got an insight into the country beyond what you find in the travel literature." - Debbie MW, April 2017
Loved Vietnam... March, 2017
"We loved Vietnam. The prison tour on Con Dao is well worth doing, not easy viewing but gives a strong sense of the history and the Scooter food tour in Saigon was great fun!" - Andy M, March 2017
Riding a bike into Saigon's night was thrilling! - Jan 2017
"Accommodations were exceptional, the staff were very professional but also friendly and we felt very relaxed there. The scooter food tour was a highlight of our trip and the cycling tour in the Delta was very good.
Some of the guides were exceptional too... Huan in Hanoi, Scooter boys in Saigon especially!" Mandy C, Jan 2017
Our holiday was just amazing - Dec 2016
"Arrived home safe and sound thank you. To say that we had a great time would be an understatement! Our holiday was just amazing, thank you so much for everything that you did, words can't express how grateful we are to yourself and Fleewinter for making our holiday a great adventure." - Dorothy S, Dec 2016
Seamless three week trip - Nov 2016
"Seamless three week trip. Great schedule with a perfect balance of city & country, guided and free days. Excellent hotel choices - altogether could not have better. Personal contact was excellent - Delia understood immediately what we wanted and handled changes/discussions as we finalised the schedule very well." - Bill F, Nov 2016
We loved every destination - Oct 2016
"We had a really great time, such a wide and varied experience and we loved Vietnam!! It is not easy travelling alone with two teenagers but this trip made it so easy. All the trips were so interesting and fun, some of the male guides a little too intense but we managed to strike a balance!! We loved every destination, I would say that our favourite was definitely Fusion Maia in Dan Nang." - Jackie S, Oct 2016
A real once in a lifetime trip - Aug 2016
"The holiday was truly fantastic - a real once in a lifetime trip. the whole family loved it - big highlights were the Nam Hai and the streetfood scooter tour in Saigon. Thank you for your help - we couldn't have asked for me from you." - David H, Aug 2016
Everything was well organised - Aug 2016
"Excellent. All accommodation fantastic. Lots of great trip & transport suggestions which worked well as an overall holiday. We were especially glad we combined Vietnam with Cambodia as the 2 countries felt very different so was interesting. The Treasure Junk was luxury and a highlight. Everything was well organised & went smoothly. Delia answered all our questions promptly & helpfully. Thank you" - Anne B, August 2016
Our trip was absolutely amazing! July 2016
"Our trip was absolutely amazing! I can’t thank you enough for having organized such a fantastic experience for us. This trip you’ve tailored for us surpassed allllll expectations! Thank you, thank you, thank you!" - Cassandra B, July 2016
Another wonderful holiday! - April 2016
"Another wonderful holiday! Taking my friend Nancy with us proved to be an absolute joy and I think you may now have another Fleewinter convert. The trekking in Sapa was out of this world, the time in Halong Bay was fantastic. Standing on the deck of a Junk in the bay during an electric storm is a memory that will remain with us. I work extremely well with Delia when organising holidays ....... I suspect that everyone does though. Delia is an extremely efficient and knowledgeable agent with an eye for detail." - Nicola K, April 2016
One of the best holidays we have ever had - April 2016
"One of the best holidays we have ever had. The bespoke approach we got from Fleewinter was ideal for us. The local partners you use on the ground in Vietnam, Khiri Travel and Handspan for the Treasure Junk are very well chosen and are a credit to you. Delia's knowledge of Vietnam made the whole process very easy and she was very patient while we took our time to make up our minds about some of the details of the trip! It was clear from the rooms she booked for is that she was very familiar with the properties and her advice on everything was spot-on. We will definitely use Fleewinter again and have already recommended to some of our friends!" - Katherine C, April 2016
Very happy with all aspects of our holiday - March 2016
"We were very happy with all aspects of our holiday. Everything went smoothly throughout, and we know we had a lot of great experiences thanks to Delia and her planning assistance that we wouldn't have had (or wouldn't have had so effortlessly) on our own. We were happy with all our accommodations. Each place had a special treat for us since we were on our honeymoon. It is also worth mentioning that as a same-sex couple we felt totally comfortable throughout the trip. It is something we are always aware of, but each time we checked into a hotel they were very welcoming. It was a non-issue." - Jeff G, March 2016
The trip was absolutely amazing - Feb 2016
"The trip was absolutely amazing, everything we wanted and so much more. Everything from start to finish was brilliantly organised, the hotels were all wonderful in their own unique way, and having your expertise in putting together the itinerary really showed. (We managed to squeeze in a day trip to Hue and and afternoon at the Cu Chi tunnels btw!) I meant to email you while we were out there to let you know how we were getting on, but if I'm honest we were too busy enjoying ourselves! Kate S - Feb 2016
"The local travel guides were all first rate" - Feb 2016
“I thought we got to see a very good picture of Cambodia and Viet Nam. I thought we got to know the geography, history, cultures, food and a bit of the politics. The local travel guides were all first rate. We had a crisis when the Halong Bay cruise was cancelled and we called the local agency and they patched us through to Delia, who was Johnny on the spot, rearranging our schedule and transportation and finding us a hotel room in Hanoi when there weren't any due to the closure of Halong Bay for 2+ days. I was very impressed.” - Max V, Feb 2016
Blown away by our Vietnam experience - Jan 2016
“We were seriously blown away by our Vietnam experience. I think I speak for all of us when I say it exceeded all of our expectations. It ran like clockwork, the tour guides were brilliant and the accommodation was just beautiful. Hoi An Chic was our fave but the Treasure Junk was such a unique experience and beautiful and we reckon we had the best spot on Phu Quoc. I can't thank you enough for your help and advice beforehand as we think we had a near perfect trip. The train was great fun by the way. And we were so glad we added Cambodia on.” - Jo S, Jan 2016
I did not miss an English Christmas one iota" - Jan 2016
“Just wanted to let you know that Vietnam has totally captivated us - all of it - even the swarms of motorbikes in Ho Chi Minh City!
The trip to the War remnants museum and the tunnels has turned me into a bit of a Vietnam War nerd - I found both moving and fascinating. We particularly loved the cruise on the Mekong Delta which was utterly fantastic. Such a beautiful boat and quality all the way with regards to food, service and sheer level of interesting things to do and see. I was expecting it to be good but not that good!
Thanks so much for all your hard work arranging such an amazing trip. I did not miss an English Christmas one iota!” Frances L, Jan 2016
"We had an amazing time!" - Dec 2015
"We had an amazing time with the right level of being busy seeing stuff and chilling out. The vast majority of things went really smoothly and Fleewinter were on hand when we needed it. Also the staff at all the places we stayed were unbelievably helpful."
"We had a fantastic holiday" - Dec 2015
“We had a fantastic holiday - four totally separate experiences in the 12 days that we were there, everything worked like clockwork. Our guides were friendly and knowledgeable and enhanced the whole Vietnam experience. Delia Monk helped us put together the itinerary with infinite patience and her attention to detail made everything go without a hitch. Nothing was too much trouble for her.” - Fiona M, Dec 2015.
"Lots of variety, action and interest." - Aug 2015
“Loved it. Lots of variety, action and interest. You deserves a million thank you's and much recognition. You were endlessly patient, always there and full of good ideas. Amazing!” - Sarah P, Aug 2015.
"The holiday was completely unforgettable.” - Aug 2015.
“The whole itinerary went really smoothly, and we got to experience an incredible variety of sights, culture, food, and so on. Our guides were really friendly, and all of the accommodation was good or better. The holiday was completely unforgettable.” - Jon B, August 2015.
"A trip of our dreams" - April 2015
“The holiday we booked through you was absolutely wonderful. We couldn't have wished for it to have gone any better, and in fact surpassed all expectations.
“Booking our honeymoon through Fleewinter agent Delia Monk was an absolute pleasure. Every question we had and any option and thoughts we discussed and aired were dealt with in a way that left us feeling nothing was too much trouble.
Delia's knowledge of Vietnam was comprehensive and instilled complete confidence in her ability to put together a trip of our dreams. Every part of the process was step by step and very easy.” - Matt W, April 2015
"We felt like we were treated like royalty" - April 2015
“We can not fault the amazing honeymoon that was organised by Delia. We felt like we were treated like royalty as soon as we were collected at the airport. Every guide was on time and bent over backwards to help in anyway possible. We were constantly surprised at how flawless and well organised it was. The time keeping of all guides and drivers was exceptional. We were lucky to have guides that were able to give us a lot of information and advice along our journey. We felt we could ask anything and they would bend over backwards to help us.” - Lindsay T, April 2015.
"The arrangements were first class", March 2015
“We had such a good holiday and all the arrangements you made for us were first class; hotels were superb, guides and drivers and transfers all went smoothly. The guides in particular were very good especially Mr Tai who took us up in to the hills.
"We loved the hotels. especially Fusion Maia , which was a lovely place to relax and the staff were all so friendly. The Intercontinental was something else!! over the top doesn't begin to describe it, a fun place to have stayed.” - Sanna D, March 2015.
“ The holiday ran like clockwork" - Jan 2015
“The holiday ran like clockwork so we always knew what we were doing. The accommodation far exceeded our expectations. The tours were fascinating and the tour leaders all very different but all brilliant. We cannot stress how awesome this holiday was. We are all gutted that it has come to an end! Delia came up with a great programme, listened to some of my ideas to change it about and then advised sensibly on what she thought would and wouldn't work. I trusted her from my initial conversation with her. I was impressed by the follow ups after booking and attention to detail e.g. changing flight direct from Phu Quoc to Siem Reap and it was nice to get a call from Fleewinter whilst there to see how it was going. I can't fault it” - Jo S, Vietnam & Cambodia - Jan 2015.
"Our transfers were totally seamless " - Jan 2015
“We had a really great holiday - educational and diverse. Our booking was very well handled and we received informed and intelligent advice from Fleewinter. Our transfers were totally seamless and completely reliable. Giang, our tour guide, was a delight and had good English and lots of knowledge. We particularly loved the cruise on the Mekong Delta which was utterly fantastic. Such a beautiful boat and quality all the way with regards to food, service and sheer level of interesting things to do and see. I was expecting it to be good but not that good!
Thanks so much for all your hard work arranging such an amazing trip. I did not miss an English Christmas one iota!” Frances L
"We loved every single moment" - Dec 2014
"Wow!!!! Where do I start! I want to say a huge thank you. I have just had the best trip of my life! You did such an awesome job - we loved every single moment of Vietnam. That place is totally amazing and I have fallen in love!
"I will be recommending this trip to everyone, such a special time we had. Thank you thank you thank you!! Where to next?!" Georgina B.
"A wonderful trip from start to finish" - Nov 2014
"Thank you, yes we are back safely - a really wonderful trip from start to finish. We are desperately trying to figure out our best moments and memories, there are just so many. As for the photos….where to start! Many, many thanks for arranging such a fabulous holiday for us." Lynne R.
"Halong Bay was a real highlight" - Aug 2014
"Back safely if a touch jet lagged. We had a brilliant time and thank you so much for your help – I was discussing with Lara and we both thought we would not have changed any of our itinerary – cannot think of a bigger compliment!
"Halong Bay was a real highlight. Really pleased we altered the itinerary so we could do Treasure Junk. Not being surrounded by other boats was fantastic. The guys on the boat were great – they gave us a questionnaire to score them and as I said to them the only thing I could fault them on was the non appearance of the sun! Kayaking brilliant, squid fishing brilliant, food fantastic."Jon N.
"We loved everywhere!" - Aug 2014
"We had the most fantastic time - thank you do much - and we loved everywhere! All guides were great and hotels - especially Bamboo (Battambang) and Hoi An Chic (Hoi An). Phou Quoc was fab and the staff at the Meracus wonderful. Hanoi was my fave!
"We are still trying to digest everything - it was an amazing adventure and emotional and historical journey. Thank you for the enthusiastic help Delia!" Jane S.
"The best holiday we've ever had!" - Aug 2014
"Well, what can I say... Except, thank you. Great organisation, worked like clockwork, great guides, great drivers, great hotels. A hackneyed expression, but Mandy did say it was probably the best holiday we've ever had! Cambodia was fantastic - and the guides fantastic. The trips you booked for us were also great - I certainly learnt a lot while I was there!
"Flights all went according to plan - and great communication via the guides. All the hotels were great - and very diverse - just what we wanted What else can I say except it was awesome - and that's all down to you and your organising!" Nick B.
This vibrant capital of Vietnam has a fascinating display of street life, food and architecture in its charming Old Quarter – let us take you on a walking tour down its winding alleyways, weaving through hundreds of motorbikes and fruit sellers. It's our favourite city and we've found a selection of fabulous boutique hotels.
Mai Chau & Pu Bin
This glorious rural corner of the country offers a mountainous landscape full of rice paddies, greenery and tribal groups. We love it because it's a bit more off the beaten track than the more popular Sapa area and have even established our very wooden stilt homestay in a local community. This is the place to head for hiking, cycling and just observing a more simple life.
The ultimate mountain retreat in Vietnam - Sapa is a night train away from the capital, Hanoi. Those who venture here are rewarded with the image of colourful tribal groups set against a backdrop of green mountains and terraced rice paddies. Some of the most beautiful scenery of Vietnam is on offer - although the tourist traffic can be high in peak season.
The must-see attraction of Vietnam: Hundreds of islets pierce through the waters of an emerald green bay. We have a fabulous selection of one and two-night cruises on offer, which are without a doubt the best way to see this area of outstanding beauty.
A lovely slice of rural life is on offer here. We especially love Ninh Binh during the summer butterfly and rice harvest seasons. Expect gorgeous caves, wooden boat rides and pretty cycle rides. We especially love the Emeralda Resort here.
The old imperial capital - this is the place to head for an insight in the ancient kings and dynasties of Vietnam. Set on the banks of the idyllic Perfume River, you can explore magnificent royal tombs of Kings gone by and the old Imperial Palace (that despite suffering in the American war is still well worth a visit). And we have discovered a fabulous selection of hideaway resorts.
This is the place that has it all; arguably the best architecture, cuisine, shopping (tailors aplenty) and beaches of all of Vietnam. Most who make it here never want to leave - this Unesco World Heritage town is full of fabulous old Japanese merchants homes, French colonial homes and classic Vietnamese styles. Pick up a bike and explore on two wheels.
Home to some of our favourite beach resorts in all of Vietnam, Nha Trang offers a little piece of Paradise on the coast of Vietnam. The town itself lacks a little inspiration but if you're looking for sand, sun and luxury then look no further.
Sun, surf and sand, oh my! This lovely little fishing-cum-beach town has a plethora of fabulous resorts and boutique hotels. World renowned for kite surfing and waterspouts, Mui Ne is a great beach destination.
A popular weekend getaway for the Vietnamese, Dalat offers a cooler climate in the mountains. Lovely walks along with more adrenalin-fuelled activities like canyoning and mountain biking are on offer here.
Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City)
The mad, modern metropolis of Vietnam is alive with the sound of a thousand motorbikes. Officially named Ho Chi Minh City but affectionately know as Saigon by the locals, this city is fun and fast paced. It's the ideal base from which to explore the infamous tunnels of the Vietnam War where guerrillas and there families lived for many years.
This enormous waterway of canals, streams and rivers is a lifeline for the locals - and people watching is perhaps the best activity of all on the Mekong Delta. Get up early for the floating markets or perhaps watch it lazily with a beer in hand from the sun deck on one of our cruises.
Phu Quoc Island
Attention all beach lovers! This is the penultimate beach destination in all of Vietnam. Whether you are taken by its serenely calm waters, long sandy beach or cute cottage-like accommodation, Phu Quoc is stealing hearts across the world. We especially love it after sunset when lanterns and candles are lit on tables along the beach. In fact, we can't think of a more perfect setting for a seafood feast, while digging your toes into the sand.
Con Dao Islands
If the budget can stretch to it, the Con Dao islands offer one of the most luxurious and beautiful beach experiences in Vietnam. Leave the rest of the world behind you when you enter Six Senses Con Dao, which feels like an ultimate private-island getaway.
Your adventure starts here!
