Things to Know Before Booking a City Tour in Vietnam

Essential tips to book a city tour in Vietnam. Hopefully, these will help you find the most suitable places to visit and things to do.

Hanoi - Cyclo Old Quarter

Why book a daily tour with IDC Travel?

Daily tours are a great way to discover a destination, and here are five reasons why:

A Free and Easy Option

Recently, backpacking has just become a trend as an independent and low-budget way of traveling. Instead of choosing an all-inclusive tour package, backpackers often book transportation and hotel before their trip. When they arrive in a city, they can choose to either go own their own or buy a city tour to join other travelers. Unlike a group tour where everything is fixed, daily tours offer you a chance to see many highlights without sticking to a schedule for your whole long trip.

Visit Many Attractions in a Short Time

Depending on your plan, you can spend from 4, 6, 8 hours to 2 or 3 days on a city tour. City tour programs definitely include some highlights of a certain destination, and you can skip the arduous process of researching where to go and planning transportation to each attraction. City tours have daily departure and you can book as soon as you arrive in a place.

It’s Affordable!

The average price of a full day tour is from US$20 – 30, and you can even find a tour at a very cheap price of US$10 – 15. For customized day tours, the price may go up to US$50 – 100, but it is still more affordable than a long tour. Travelers can see many highlights of a destination with that affordable price, which is such a deal!

High Service Quality

Day tour operators always have air-conditioned vans with experienced drivers for you to go around the place. Each traveler will be given a free bottle of water. Also, you can understand a lot about Vietnam’s history, culture, and traditions by listening to an expert. All attractions are carefully considered to ensure that you have a meaningful time without being too tired or overwhelmed by many tourist traps.

Interesting Tour Programs

A classic day tour is recommended when you visit any place, but what’s if you want something different? Book a food tour to taste and learn to cook local dishes. Consider a cycling tour to work out your muscles after a feast of local cuisine. Or even take a short cruise trip to escape from bustle and hustle cities. Every experience is at your fingertips; just choose the tour that will amaze you! IDC Travel can also customize your daily tour to Vietnam with private vehicles and attractions that suit your tastes and preferences.

These are some cannot-miss travel destinations in Vietnam where you can take one to three days on a city tour to visit:


cyclo in Hanoi - Hanoi City Tour

Hanoi, the heart of our country, is a quaint and rustic capital city. You can see all political, historical, cultural, and economic aspects of Vietnam in this city. Normally, a classic Hanoi City Tour includes iconic landmarks such as Hoan Kiem Lake, Old Quarter area, Temple of Literature, Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, Tran Quoc Pagoda, and Vietnam Museum of Ethnology.  Hoan Kiem Lake and the Old Quarter are the two must-visit attractions in Hanoi. Make sure you try some local dishes such as Pho and Bun cha, and buy some traditional souvenirs in the Old Quarter.




Ho Chi Minh City

Notre Dame Cathedral - Ho Chi Minh City Tour

As the largest city in Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City (or Saigon) is the center of economy and commerce of our country. Considered as ‘the Pearl of the Far East’, this city is noisy and crowded yet sparkling and dynamic. You can see many amazing colonial and religious landmarks in this city on a Ho Chi Minh City Tour, such as Reunification Palace (or Independence Palace), Saigon Notre-Dame Cathedral, Saigon Central Post Office, and War Remnants Museum. 30 kilometers from Saigon, Cu Chi is an interesting place to explore the amazing tunnel system where Viet Cong hid during the War.




Halong Bay

Cruise to Halong Bay - Halong Bay Day Tour

Halong Bay has been renowned to international tourists as one of the best destinations in Vietnam. You can discover the magical beauty of this legendary bay with its amazing islands, islets, caves, and beaches. A cruise to the bay will give visitors the impression that they enter a legendary and surreal world. The caves here are in different and unusual shapes and sizes, which ignite your interest and pique your imagination. You can also try delicious seafood prepared by experienced chefs and enjoy amazing activities like kayaking and swimming. You can spend from 4 hours to 2-3 days in Halong, depending on your schedule.



Ninh Binh

Tam Coc - Ninh Binh Day Tour

Ninh Binh satisfies thrill-seekers with some interesting activities such as exploring unspoiled jungles, observing limestone caves, and discovering our unique stalactites and stalagmites system. There are many natural and religious sites in Ninh Binh: Bai Dinh Pagoda, Trang An Eco-tourism Complex, Tam Coc – Bich Dong, Phat Diem Cathedral, Hoa Lu Ancient Citadel, Cuc Phuong Natural Park, Hang Mua (Mua Cave), and Thung Nham Bird Park. When you book a day tour to Ninh Binh, we recommend that you consider between two routes: Bai Dinh – Trang An or Hoa Lu – Tam Coc.





Sapa Day Tour

Lying on the side of Hoang Lien Son Mountains, Sapa is a beautiful town which is 333 km to the northwest of Hanoi and close to the Chinese border. Spending a few days in Sapa, you not only have an opportunity to breathe the fresh air of a northwestern mountainous region but also visit emerald terraced rice fields, spectacular waterfalls, conquer to Fansipan Mountain and trek to some ethnic villages such as Cat Cat, Ta Van and Ta Phin Villages.




Hoi An

Hoi An Daily Tour

Hoi An is one of the most rustic towns in Vietnam. This town used to be a major international trading port in the 16th and 17th centuries. Chinese and Japanese merchants who settled down in Hoi An brought cultural influences to this town’s architecture and cuisines. Visiting Hoi An, you can see truly genuine Vietnamese architecture which is harmoniously influenced by French, Japanese and Chinese architectural styles. Hoi An also hosts a number of exciting cooking and lantern making classes taught by experienced local artists.




Mekong Delta

Mekong Delta Day Tour

Consisting of 12 provinces, Mekong Delta is frequently visited by domestic and international travelers thanks to its unique cultural aspects and unspoiled natural landscapes. The best way to relish the beauty of this region is by taking a two or three-day Mekong Delta trip to visit our floating markets and understand the locals’ daily life.

There are many daily tour programs available; you just need to choose which experience is suitable for your strength and physical abilities. If your children join you on the tour, make sure that you choose easy experiences like a short walking tour. However, if you want to do something extraordinary and adventurous, book a motorbike tour.

Sightseeing Tour

Hanoi City Tour

It is both time-consuming and expensive when you have to research where to go on your own and take taxis or walk to each attraction. Sightseeing tours often offer a van, a bottle of water, and an experienced tour guide who can provide you with essential information about Vietnam’s history, traditions, and customs. In Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, travelers can choose a cyclo (xich lo) tour to visit old small streets at a low pace.




Food Tour/ Cooking Class

Pho - Hanoi Food Tour

Tourists can be overwhelmed with the number of traditional dishes and local restaurants and food vendors in Vietnam. That’s why you need a tour guide who can take you to tasty spots. You can escape from tourist restaurants and head to some off-the-beaten-track eateries and food stalls to taste the true essence of Vietnam. If you want to challenge yourself with local food and bring home some recipes, our Cooking Classes can help you. The dish choice can vary based on your level, from easy ones like salad and spring rolls to more sophisticated dishes such as pho and rice noodle. The chefs will take you to a local wet market to purchase fresh ingredients and explain market culture in Vietnam before the class.




Cycling Tour

Vietnam cycling tour

Whether you want to admire the beauty of Vietnam’s countryside in an authentic way or you just love to work out your muscles a little bit, go for a biking tour. You can explore the daily life of the local residents, visit the main attractions, and learn about the history and culture of Vietnam. This kind of tour often takes place in the countryside; and if you do it in big cities like Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh, make sure you get to know the traffic rules.




Motorbike Tour

Hanoi Motorbike Tour

There are Vietnam motorbike tours for travelers who are adventurous and eager to boost their adrenaline by riding motorbikes to exotic trails of our country. However, for daily motorbike tours, you are accompanied by experienced local tour guides. You can be seated safely behind your guide and taken to iconic landmarks. There is nothing better than sitting behind beautiful tour guides who wear traditional ao dai and thoroughly explain Vietnam’s history to you. At the end of this tour, normally you will be taken to a local restaurant or café to enjoy pho, bun cha or a cup of egg coffee or beer.




Boat Tour

Halong Bay Day Tour

Endowed with a system of lakes, rivers, and bays, Vietnam is undoubtedly a suitable place for cruise trips. Two longest rivers in Vietnam are Mekong River and Red River (Song Hong). On a cruise to these rivers, you can admire the lush landscape and explore local life along the river bank. Also, when traveling to Northern Vietnam, you probably need to spend time in Halong Bay, the UNESCO Heritage site of our country. It is recommended taking a Halong Bay day tour, round-trip from Hanoi to enjoy spectacular views of caves, water and islets, and take part in some activities such as kayaking and swimming.




Trekking Tour

Sapa Daily Tour

Vietnam is famous for majestic natural landscapes including mountains, jungles, hills and plateau as well as many ethnic minorities. Therefore, there is no reason why you skip trekking during your time in Vietnam. On our Sapa Daily Tours, Mai Chau Tours, and Ha Giang Tours, you can see mesmerizing rice terraces, imposing mountains, and bucolic hill tribes. Besides, tourists can stay with a local family, try some local dishes, learn ethnic languages, and discover their traditional agricultural techniques.

Ho Chi Minh City Tour

After deciding a tour program, you may need to consider some factors to have a memorable city tour:

Research the Weather

Due to our diverse topography, the weather in Vietnam varies from north to south. While the north is hot in summers and cold in winters, with a high level of rainfall from July to September, Central and Southern Vietnam have two seasons only: rainy and dry season. Bad weather, either too hot or too cold, can spoil your trip. Sometimes, daily tours to Halong Bay are cancelled due to typhoons.

Therefore, research the weather before booking any day tour in Vietnam. Read our articles about Vietnam Seasons for more information.

Wear Appropriate Clothes

Vietnam possesses a hot and humid weather, thus, light clothing made from cotton or linen is recommended. T-shirts and long pants are suitable for a sightseeing trip. During winters in the north, coats, sweaters, and hoodies are needed. If your trip includes a visit to temples or pagodas, do not wear short pants and sleeveless shirts. Remember to act appropriately when visiting a religious site.

When you choose outdoor activities on daily tours such as trekking or cycling, a good pair of shoes is required. Make sure that you check whether the tour operator prepares you a good helmet on a motorbike tour.

Bring Your Necessities

Sunscreen is needed for outdoor activities, and make sure you bring it to reapply. There are many mosquitoes in Vietnam’s rural areas and wetland forest, so be careful! Take bug spray or insect repellent with you. If you have children, wet and dry tissues are required.

You will be given a free bottle of water before your trip. If you need extra, not need to bring more since you can buy water at our supermarkets and convenient stores.

Specify your Special Requirements

Tell the tour operators all your health issues and they can consult appropriate day tours and activities for you, especially when you travel with elders and children. They can also contact the restaurant if you have dietary restrictions or food allergy.

Choose a Prestigious Travel Agency

You may hear may tourist scams of untrustworthy travel agencies: hot vans without air condition, lousy tour guides taking travelers to shopping places, or the tour including many tourist traps. Do not worry about those issues when booking a daily tour with IDC Travel.

We have carefully sourced our service providers from transportation, accommodations, and restaurants to ensure a hassle-free trip for travelers. All tour prices are affordable without compromising service quality. We understand your concerns and we are confident about our capabilities of tailor-making a Vietnam tour that meets your time, budget and special requirements.
