Our experts in Vietnam

Tonkin Travel

In a country that is now quite well known around the world the important thing that we have is originality. Every company says they know Vietnam and can run a tour - but we take great pride in the quality and difference of what we do.

Founded by two energetic Hanoi women - Hue and Ly - with vast experience in Vietnam tourism, our company has been taking our clients on exciting adventures and relaxing holidays since 2002. In the last few years we have welcomed nearly 30,000 travellers to Vietnam. There are hundreds of tour companies in Vietnam - but there are no cookie cutters here at Tonkin Travel. Everything we do is bespoke and we love to introduce new ideas and concepts to our customers. We are members of the Responsible Travel Club of Vietnam, which aims to drive benefits from tourism into local projects and, like all companies on TravelLocal we are locally-owned. All trips booked on the TravelLocal platform are 100% financially protected by ABTA, the UK's largest travel association, and all payments are handled here in the UK. TravelLocal carefully selects each local travel company we work with so our clients can book safe in the knowledge that they are doing so with experienced, trusted and passionate experts in their destination.
