Testimonial

Amazing Voyages kept track of us every day and we cannot explain how important it was to us to feel that we were in very good hands. Every driver and guide was always on time and very gracious and helpful and our every need was taken care of for us. We really appreciate your professionalism.

The Plaza Grande in Quito is absolutely fabulous, the Royal Palm in the Galapagos is the best hotel we ever stayed in; the chef is outstanding, his meals are some of the best we ever had. Did you know that Prince Charles stayed there when he visited the islands? We are sure that the service we received was just as good as his. We had a marvelous time in the Galapagos and it was living a dream.

Luxury tour Vietnam like no other

Vietnam is a unique and special destination with a charm and atmosphere like no other. Travelling at your own pace and starting in Hanoi you will really discover this extraordinary city, so Vietnamese and yet still so French. You will see the limestone scenery that made the classic French film ´Indochine´ famous when you visit Hoa Lua and feel the full panorama of its romance while cruising on Halong Bay.
The central area is the cultural heart of the country and also where you will sample some of Vietnam´s most exquisite cuisine. Here you will drink tea in the ancient fishing village of Hoi An, cruise along the Perfume River, wander through the forbidden city in Hue and discover the ancient empire of Champa.
Waiting in the south is the Mekong Delta, the mouth of the dragon. You will discover Saigon, now Ho Chi Minh City, a city of contrasts where modern and ancient Asia compete openly on the streets. Far from the city we will take you on a private and truly memorable overnight cruise through the tropical delta on a Vietnamese sampan. Wake up in the Mekong Delta, slide through the boats, fruit and sweet savories to be the first customer at the floating market.
