There's no gallery of glossy
photos/images to catch your eye here...Sorry!
We rely on the fact that you are here because you're looking for information on
tours of Vietnam ...so we have focused on explaining exactly what YOU could be
doing each day if you decide to join one of our tours. Prices are included
for you to consider and compare. The TRAIN is the clincher!
prefer to send you a 22 minute DVD - better for you to judge
our train, coaches, boats, hotels & restaurants on tour. Glossy
pictures on a website to convince you? We thought not.
The DVD will allow you to see exactly what our train is all about - enjoying
Frank O'Brien (tour escort)
first 'visited' Vietnam in 1969. He ventured back 20 years
later, visiting Ha Noi before flying south to see Ho Chi Minh City ...it
was another world.
Later, in 1992, he travelled on Dorothy
Button's inaugural "Train Tour of Vietnam" from Sai Gon to Ha
Noi (aboard "The Reunification Express")
and knew immediately that the train held all the advantages over
car/coach/plane that he experienced in 1989 ...everyone could relax, move about
freely, AND see the countryside on both sides of the train!
The train was pretty basic back
in those days but it was comfortable, private and secure ...reading a book,
having a beer, a meal, a game of cards, a snooze or simply observing &
photographing the ever-changing scenes. All loved it. Today
it's even better ...Franko's 2 carriages are fully air-conditioned and there's a
bar and DVD/TV/CD/KARAOKE system aboard!
Our chartered carriages stay with us
throughout the tour. When we reach the various stop-over
destinations (Nha Trang, etc.) our private sleeping & dining cars are
disconnected and moved to a siding and secured to await our return in a few
We visit ALL the
"main attractions" that Vietnam has to offer ...and then some (see
Itinerary). Every stage of the tour; every hotel, restaurant, tour
guide and mode of transport has been fully endorsed by previous tour
clients. We stay at good hotels, dine at the best restaurants, enjoy
superb entertainment (dinner show most evenings) and travel everywhere in
the very best way to see Vietnam!
