This tour was created to give guests a greater understanding of Vietnam today.

The Details - How to Prepare for the Tour

Please wear clothing respective to the weather on the day of the tour. It would be advised to bring waterproofs or an umbrella if the forecast is scheduled to rain.

Vietnow is a walking tour. If the guest prefers to take private transport, taxis can be arranged between each location at the expense of the guests. Guides will inform you of the length of each walk before beginning the tour.

This tour is donation based! Meaning that food and drinks can be bought at the decision of the guest. It is strongly recommended to have some money for drinks or snacks at respective stops but this isn’t essential.

Since this tour is free, we also really appreciate tips for our guides.

The tour can include a large amount of walking depending on the ever-changing itinerary. Although there are no strenuous terrains, there is an inconsistent variety of paths in the city. It is strongly recommended to wear footwear that you feel comfortable walking in. 

Mosquitoes can be an issue at certain times of the year. If you are not wearing clothing that covers your legs and ankles, we advise you to use mosquito spray.

The best Vietnow tours are when guests are engaged with the case studies we present and discuss them with their guide. We want to break the mould of one-way monologues that are easily forgotten shortly after the tour. We craves your questions and applaud interaction. Don’t be afraid to get stuck in and offer questions, opinions, comparisons, personal experiences and speculation to the Vietnow tour!
