VIETOURIST TRAVEL TOUR INFORMATION
Most tours are available with daily departures. We further offer several seat-in-coach tours with fixed departure dates. Since flight schedules vary from day to day, schedules of sightseeing tours may sometimes require adjustment. Although Vietourist Travel offers a selection of accommodation at various hotels, it may not always be possible to confirm accommodation as requested due to very limited room capacities during certain periods and certain parts of Vietnam. Alternative accommodation can in some cases be at sub-standard hotels, which lack essential facilities. No refunds can be made for any shortcomings related to accommodation in Vietnam. Visa fees are not included in the tour prices.
Our tours include:
· Transportation in air-conditioned car/van/coach
· Domestic airfares & tax in economy class
· Hotel accommodation (twin share basis) including breakfast
· Meals as mentioned in itineraries, food only.
· Entrance fees, boat fees, cyclo fees as detailed in the programs
· English, German or French speaking local guides. Italian, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese and Russian speaking guides can also be arranged at additional cost (subject to availability).
Please note that, Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum in Hanoi is closed every Monday and Friday and for the full duration of October and November. Museums are closed on Mondays and partly on Fridays.
We further would like to advise that, because of frequent flight changes and cancellations by Vietnam Airlines we cannot fully guarantee that the proposed itinerary can be carried out as planned. Based on our experience changes of departure times and/or cancellations can occur at very short notice even after confirmations for a flight have been received. Same applies for train travel - schedule changes occur frequently and sometimes without prior notification.
In case of schedule changes or flight cancellation we will always try everything human possible to arrange an alternate program within the framework of the original quoted costs. However we reserve the right to charge any cost exceeding the original budget to the tour operator/travel agent or to the participant of a tour after consultation with the agent.
