“Having visited Vietnam on numerous occasions and created many memorable itineraries I am delighted to be leading this very special trip to my favourite destination. I can’t wait to introduce people to the diverse and stunning scenery, incredible cuisine and the warmth of the Vietnamese as we travel the length of the country. We will stay in hand-picked boutique properties that while comfortable, will reflect the surroundings and embark on excursions that will really bring this wonderful country to life” - Nick Payton
