Way To Travel offers small group tours in Vietnam that give you the adventure of a lifetime, allow you to discover new cultures and give back to local communities. The absolute best 'Way To' see and support this hidden gem of Asia... Vietnam!


This was one of the best trips I have ever taken. The work that went on behind the scenes was awe inspiring! Jane and Mr T paved the way for us to see the most Incredible sights and experiences. We went to markets, temples, rode bikes and rickshaws - all with the most detailed descriptions of Vietnamese history and culture. We all felt so safe that getting stuck on a train for 10 hours didn’t phase us. Mr T was on the phone sorting accommodation and Jane was checking on us individually. We stayed in nice accommodation, rode comfortable buses and provided multiple opportunities for free time with recommendations for food, massages and sightseeing. Our volunteer project was well planned for us to see the finished bathroom/toilet. We were all overjoyed to help this deserving Family and providing them with some basic creature comforts. Our visit to the elementary school was joyful and fun - not sure who enjoyed noir presentation more - us or the children! Also our visit to the Hope Center was so personal and humbling, With a great opportunity to shop! A most magical trip that will not soon be forgotten. ❤️

This trip for me was supposed to be a trip of a life time and it did not disappoint at all. It was truly filled with wonderful experiences from start to finish. Even the flood we experienced in Hue didn’t put a damper on the trip, it became part of the adventure. Our Tour leader Ngo “Mr T” was simply amazing. He shared his country with us and shared the love he has for it! I highly recommend this trip to anyone interested in Vietnam. There is a giving back component to the tour and we able to help a local family in Hue with improvements to their home that certainly changed their lives. It was an honour to be part of this service project if only for a few days. Thank you Jane and T!

A quick Google search will offer so many holiday options promising the opportunity to see the ‘real’ Vietnam. Having just come back from this 17-day trip with Way to Travel, I can’t recommend travelling with them highly enough. This was my first visit to Vietnam and, thanks to them, I wasn’t disappointed. The itinerary looked really interesting, starting in the North, travelling through the centre and then on to the South (I opted for the bolt on to Saigon and the Mekong) but the trip itself is so much more than the itinerary suggests. Yes, it includes time in the usual tourist hotspots that you’d expect to visit (Hanoi, Ha Long Bay, Hoi An and Ho Chi Minh city) but the number of additional activities, squeezed in wherever possible, really allow you to get under the skin of this beautiful country. Jane Hanoi and Tuan (the indefatigable Mr T) have clearly put an enormous amount of thought into this trip to help guests really understand the history, culture, cuisine and a way of life that would undoubtedly be missed on a regular package-type tour. Mr T is one of the best guides I’ve ever met – enthusiastic, patient, calm, knowledgeable, kind, good humoured, organised, generous and so passionate about the history of Vietnam. From having to juggle the itinerary following unexpected weather challenges (a storm warning in Ha Long which sadly resulted in the cancellation of our overnight cruise and severe flooding in Hue which caused us to be stranded on the overnight train for six hours!), to recommending restaurants and activities for our free time and helping us through any issues or challenges that arose, Mr T was just incredible, going above and beyond to make sure we had the best possible time. The highlight of the trip for me was the ‘Do Something Small, Change Something Big’ community giving project in Hue. The flooding impacted this too but once again, Mr T came up with a solution to maximise our time on the project so that we were able to achieve what had been planned. Thanks again Mr T and Jane for this wonderfully authentic experience – it was all I hoped it would be and more. I have no doubt that Way to Travel will go from strength to strength. With very best wishes to you and your families.

I have recently returned from an incredible experience of Vietnam with We Travel. Our local guide, Mr T, was exceptional. Very caring, attentive, knowledgable, with attention to detail, clear with instructions and able to adapt seamlessly when the itinerary was forced to change due to floods. His passion was obvious and it was a privilege to be involved in the community project to build an outside shower/toilet and a hen coop for a family in need. There were many varied experiences, modes of travel and trials of fabulous food forming great memories. Jane was in constant contact with Mr T and they make a formidable team with high drive, ethics and professionalism so I would highly recommend We Travel.

Activity packed trip. When the weather disagreed with the original plans, the organizers came up with other plans which were equally valuable. Accommodations were comfortable and very clean and surpassed y expectations. The food was delicious! And our guide… Mr. T. is an extremely knowledgeable person who willingly and enthusiastically shares his knowledge about his country. He is a kind hearted, generous person who is an amazingly ambassador for Way to Travel! Loved this trip, love the principles and goals of this company. Jane and T are absolutely wonderful hosts. 💕

If you're looking for a fun-filled jam packed adventure, exploring Vietnam from the North in Hanoi to the South in Ho Chi Minh City and the Mekgong Delta and south in-between then this tour company, does it all? Way to Travel is definitely your choice of tour company which also includes some give back to the community projects that will leave your heart so full that you were able to help in a small way change the life of a local family. Tuan and Jane have taken care of every detail that you could imagine. From walking tours of each city and exploring local markets, visiting pagodas to recommendations for massages, laundry services and evening dinners. Our guide Tuan went above and beyond assisting everyone in any way needed. Tuan's knowledge of the history of each area was an incredible way to hear and learn about the history and culture of this amazing country. Our transportation and accommodations were all excellent, roomy AC mini buses to transport us to next location and even an overnight train to central Vietnam. Boats, buses, trains, rickshaws, electric cars, scooters, bicycles and plane to Ho Chi Minh City if you do the add on. Each day was filled with so much variety, cruising and kayaking Halong Bay, electric cars to ride basket boats to cooking classes in the north, central and south to riding in rickshaws and biking amongst the rice fields to climbing 455 steps to the top of Dragon Mountain. If you arrive early Jane has a special tour of her local villages, incense factory, traditional conical hat making and lunch with a local family and more. Whether your traveling solo or with someone you will be treated with such care by this amazing team. Don't hesitate to book now you will come away changed for the better and your heart with definitely be full of the sights and sounds of the people and landscape of Vietnam with memories that will last forever.
