The French – Vietnamese team of Tropical Tours has been looking for original tours in Viet Nam for fifteen years. We try to find interesting sites far from the crowds where visitors remain rare but always full of cultural discoveries, beautiful landscapes or historic monuments (such as our tailor- made tours “ethnic cultures of the interior” whose guide is a professional anthropologist).
We can, of course, organize tours in the most famous sites in Viet Nam such as Ha Long Bay, Sapa mountains, the imperial Citadel in Hue and the old city of Hoi An – We always try our best to propose you several accommodation standards to satisfy your wishes and offer you the best quality for the best price.
One of our particularities is that ourselves first the tours we will propose you. This allows us:
To make sure that the quality of our tour is as high as supposed and, if it is not, to ask our partners to improve the unsatisfactory service.
To have a web of partners that can guarantee the quality with good price thanks to our direct relations with the hotels, guesthouses and guides. Such relations also make it easier for us to adapt our tailor – made tours to your needs.
Our French – Vietnamese team is specialized in tours where the meeting between the traveler and the locals is one of the main targets. Our guides are specialists of mountain ethnic cultures so they will be an excellent link between you and the locals. Professional anthropologists (from the French National center for Scientific research, French and Vietnamese universities) usually advise our tours in ethnic villages so that our tours can integrate as well as possible in the local social and cultural life and help the economic development of mountain areas. For instance, for the treks in Sapa and Bac Ha we try to offer you guides from the neighboring ethnic villages so that you can really feel in the middle of cultural and ethnic diversity, this will also help the local economy.
