MORE INFORMATION ABOUT VIETNAM
Our Vietnam holidays leave a major impression on our guests. How do we know? Well the torrent of feedback isn't just letters; we've also received poems, including an 18-verse epic from the Osterman family. As well as charting their diverse tour from cycle rides and helicopter flights to imperial feasts and tropical beaches, it deserves special mention for rhyming 'rubber plantation' with 'amazing vacation'.

Although less lyrical, other A&K guests' correspondence has been full of praise, particularly for our guide Pedro, who added an impromptu, superbly informative tour of Haiphong into an itinerary running ahead of schedule, and for Minh Chau, whose brilliantly clear historical explanations brought the country vividly to life for one client's young grandsons. They described their experiences as 'life altering'.

Positive feedback is always welcome, but we're not surprised. Although Vietnam has been a feature of our South East Asian portfolio for several years, we set up our own operation there in 2012 precisely to deliver our premium service standards on the ground. The guides are part of a crack regional team with excellent contacts, huge experience and the best vehicle fleet available.

Travel to Vietnam with Abercrombie & Kent and we'll show you a beguiling mix of French colonial splendour, dreamy landscapes and the extraordinary legacy of recent military conflict - we've even arranged for our clients to meet 'Uncle Nam', a war veteran who lived in the infamous Cu Chi Tunnels. You'll experience Hanoi's wide avenues and temples, as well as getting an expert introduction to its thrilling food; or float across the emerald water of Halong Bay among vast limestone pinnacles, and flop on the beaches around Danang.

And you're just starting. Our guides can take you to historic Hoi An and the imperial capital of Hue on the Perfume River, as well as the frenetic streets of Ho Chi Minh, and the southwest's verdant and vast Mekong Delta with its floating markets. There's another poem just waiting to be written.

Spring escapes with Abercrombie & Kent

The notion of a peak season is usually a function of weather and school holidays, often meaning an increase in hotel rates and airfares. However, at A&K we are big fans of the so-called 'shoulder' season. Here are a few great reasons to get packing this Spring.
