Great experience thanks to friendly and informative service. The guides were very attentive, as were the rest of the members. The agency was in regular contact with my family before the scheduled date, the shuttle was smooth on time, the places to visit were beautiful. It's a good mix, no rush and enough time to have both activity and relaxation time. 100% recommend!

Alex organised an excellent South and Central Vietnam 9 day itinerary for us. Responsive, catered to our requirements, good choice of hotels, knowledgeable guides, reliable drivers, well priced. Especially our guide Duy in Saigon, he was extra good with small children. He kept us updated with the typhoon in September as well, our plans nearly got disrupted by it. All in all highly recommended.

I found IDC travel online because of the good reviews, and after a day of inquiring, Sir Alex responded right away with a detailed itinerary tailored to our preference! He is very responsive and accommodating with our needs, especially during our travel. Our trip in vietnam was organised, smooth, and really enjoyable! Even the organization of the itinerary and payments went smoothly. Some few comments would be agreeing to the previous review, like having the tour guide give us advices/tips about maybe the weather, what to wear, what to expect during the tours or anything important to bring if necessary so we could prepare better in terms of outfit, what to bring, etc. The drivers are very nice, but it would be even better if they greeted/welcomed us once we arrive. One driver did not have proper signage so we were waiting for quite awhile. Nevertheless, Sir Alex listened to our concerns and came up with solutions right away. Overall, we are very satisfied and it was great value for our money too. We booked another tour with them for Thailand this August. We cannot wait to book with them again in the future.

The guide knew the area very well and spoke good English. The beach is beautiful and maybe because of the virus fewer people travelling, or maybe because of the location and the timing, but it felt like we had the whole area to ourselves. The food and fruits are also delicious.

I highly recommend this tour to anyone who travels alone and just has a short-day trip like me. It was so well-organized with 10 days traveling from North to South Vietnam and visiting all the typical places here : Hanoi, Ha Long Bay, Ninh Binh, Hoi An, Ho Chi Minh City and Mekong Delta. Everyone I met was so nice: my guides, all the new friends that I made, and local people. The service was excellent. I'm really happy with my hotels during the trip, so clean and lovely. Thanks for a great tour!

Alex helped me organize a wonderful trip for my family! He helped me a lot, from choosing locations and activities to shopping and dining details. Our trip was amazing. The tour guides were so enthusiastic. Our hotels were booked in the middle of crowded streets in the downtown areas, which allowed us to explore at night and enjoy the lively local lifestyle. In addition, the trip was reasonably priced and customized to meet our needs. We are grateful to you, Alex, and we can't wait for our next visit.

Common Questions Travelers Ask Us

Make sure your passport is valid for at least 6 months from the date you enter Vietnam.

Check if your nationality is eligible for Vietnam visa exemption and we can help you prepare a visa letter for free upon arrival in Vietnam.

There are 4 types of common travel visas: 1-month single entry, 1-month multiple entry, 3-month single entry, and 3-month multiple entry.



In Vietnam, only Vietnam Dong (VND) is accepted in all purchase transactions. Travelers can use US dollars, Australian Dollars, Euros, or British Pounds to pay for goods and services in some places, like hotels, restaurants, souvenir shops, etc.

Tourists can exchange money at some banks in Vietnam, which are easily found in airports and major cities.

Check with your departure immigration gate how much a person can bring first, then you must report to Vietnam arrival immigration if you are bringing more than US$5,000 (per person).

You should not prepare VND before your trip to Vietnam because the exchange rate in your country may not be favorable. It is advisable to have your money exchanged at the arrival airport or at the bank in Vietnam for a better rate.



  • Particularly in mountainous areas, the weather can change quickly.
  • From north to south, the average meteorological temperature rises.
  • Be ready for a lot of humidity.
  • The best months to visit Northern Vietnam are January through April and September through December. The summer months of May through August are going to be hot and muggy.
  • The only time you should really stay away from central and southern Vietnam is from May to October because that is when it rains the most.

For more information, you can consult your travel expert and read more on our blog.



  • It is simple to locate a taxi if you need to get around a city. However, renting a car in Vietnam will give you more flexibility for your trip.
  • A safe and affordable option for late-night travel is the train. To save time on your trip, we can assist you in purchasing Vietnam night train tickets.
  • Boats are popular on a Halong Bay cruise or a Mekong cruise. Get in touch with us to book a professional cruise with solid crews and safe boats.
  • Due to the length of the country, flights are necessary to get from one region to another. We will find the best Vietnam flight deals for you, so there is no need to waste time looking for low-cost tickets.

The electrical outlet we are using is a 220V, 50Hz, 2 and 3-pin outlet. Most hotels provide outlets that can accommodate a variety of plug types. If you are taking a lot of devices on your trip, you will need universal travel adapters.



In Vietnam, particularly in the larger cities, hotels, cafes, and restaurants all have reasonably good wifi connections. Utilize the free wifi to make calls to your loved ones on Skype, Viber, or Whatsapp.

However, we strongly advise that you buy a SIM card in Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City if you plan to visit rural areas where the wifi is unreliable. In the heart of the city or at the airport, it is simple to locate an official Viettel and Vinaphone store. Check with us. We will prepare a free SIM card for you.



People can speak English decently well in tourist hotspots like Hanoi, Da Nang, Nha Trang, and Ho Chi Minh City. To avoid language barriers while traveling in rural areas, it is recommended that you download some translation apps to your smartphone.



We strongly advise you to purchase international travel insurance. With international coverage, you can relax knowing that you are covered for any emergencies that may occur before or during your trip, such as the need to fly back to see a relative or change or cancel a tour due to a natural disaster.



We design a tour based on your preferences, finances, and time constraints.

  • Travel on your own unique route

We’ll let you explore authentic Vietnam on your own so you won’t have to waste time at pre-arranged shopping stops.

  • Travel with your own guide

With the goal of providing you with a comprehensive understanding of Vietnamese life and history, we have assembled a team of qualified English- and French-speaking tour guides who have been carefully chosen for their professionalism, charm, and in-depth local knowledge.

  • Travel with flexibility in transport

We provide all necessary forms of transportation, including air travel, ground transportation, car rentals, and boat tours. You can hire a private driver to drive you around.

  • No hidden fees included

You won’t be charged extra for middlemen because we plan and coordinate all of our own tours. All taxes and service fees are included in our prices. Tipping is based on your willingness and level of satisfaction.
