Vietnam is full of unexpected, marvelous sights: vast, green rice terraces fill the landscape, dotted with numerous conical hats of local farmers. A country of seemingly endless farmland is interrupted by massive cities with vibrant nightlife. Centuries-old temples and decorated pagodas are found at every turn, including a tiny one that stands on one leg in the center of a lotus pond. Not too far from Hanoi, the nation's capitol, a serene, turquoise-water bay is dotted with thousands of limestone karsts and isles. Bustling markets full of fresh fruit and patterned trinkets are found a short walk from ornate French colonial buildings, community squares, and elegant public gardens. With round-trip, international flights, hotels, comprehensive touring, and many meals—all of this magic and more await you in Vietnam.

† The Carefree Booking policy is not travel insurance and only applies to a new booking—defined as booking without the use of funds on file from a previous cancellation. With our Carefree Booking policy, if you book one of our scheduled departures and decide later not to travel for any reason, you can transfer all payments you've made excluding the cost of any issued flight tickets, towards another available departure date or package, with no change fees or penalties.

Alternately, you can choose to receive a future travel credit for all payments made, excluding the cost of any issued flight tickets; or you can choose to receive a refund for that same amount, minus the deposit, per person future travel credit.

You may use these credits anytime, however they must be used or transferred within 5 years of your booking.

The Carefree Booking policy only applies to your original booking—limiting rebookings to one. Subsequent bookings will be subject to standard cancellation penalties. Additionally, any coupon or discount (other than our Instant Savings) does not transfer from the cancelled booking and therefore will not be applied to the new booking.

Travel protection premiums may be credited to your new tour provided: no claim is filed; (no vendor penalties such as Air, sea or rail etc have been incurred); and your new trip departs within 1 year of the cancellation of your original tour.

Valid for bookings made on or after September 23, 2022 Offer may not be available on all packages, including private and custom group departures and Biblical Journeys. Changes or cancellations requested after final payment due date are subject to our regular change and cancellation fees & policies. For more information and some additional restrictions, see our terms & conditions.

†† $199 deposit available on select packages. Valid for new bookings only. Changes to your package, departure date, or flights may require an increased deposit. If you select our optional travel protection plan, the premium will be added to your deposit. See additional terms & conditions.
