  • Do I need to put down a deposit/prepay to book a tour?

    The deposit for each tour is as the following: 3 days before the tour, we require a 50% deposit in order to reserve a booking and 50% of remaining charge is paid before departuring.
  • I am a solo traveler. Can I book the tour?

    We always welcome solo travelers to take part in every tour.
  • Would you allow me to drive your car/ motorbike?

    No, because of the transportation law (as mentioned earlier) and your safety, we can not permit you to drive our vehicles.
  • Can I drive my own motorbike/car in the tour?

    No. All guests ride a pillion behind the tour guide as a passenger. It is illigal for foreigners to drive in Vietnam without a Vietnamese driver’s lisence. Moreover, our travel insurance doesn’t cover you in case you get into an accident if you don’t have your own Vietnamese driver’s lisence.
  • What kind of vehicles do you use on the tour?

    For all our tours, we provide high quality cars and late model motorbikes. Our travel insurance covers you if you are a rider as a pillion passenger.
  • What happens if it rains before/during the tour?

    Complementary weather is always appreciated for an amazing adventure, but sometimes Mother Nature changes her mind. Don’t worry! We have free rain ponchos for everyone. However:
    • In case it rains before our tour, we will delay the start time about 30 minutes.
    • If it still rains heavily and we have to cancel our tour, we will refund you in full.
    • In case it suddenly rains during a tour (Vinh By Night or Vinh & Around), and we can’t continue, a taxi will be provided to return you to your hotel and you will only be charged for the time you spent on the tour.
  • Do you offer your tours in other cities in Vietnam besides Vinh City?

    No. We currently only offer tours in Vinh City and Nghe An area. We want to share our hometown with you so you can discover Nghe An’s hidden, charming beauty.
  • Do your “Vinh By Night” & “Vinh & Around” tours include street food? Is it safe to eat?

    Absolutely. Both tours include street food – it is a large part of the culture of Nghe An that can not be overlooked when you come to Vinh City. Our tour guide will introduce you to some famous food venues that are chosen carefully. We work with specific vendors to ensure safe and delicious cultural foods, for your pleasure. We understand any concerns you may have about eating street food, however, rest assured, the street food is very safe. Many foreigners eat street food with no health issues
  • Can you cater to my food allergies/restrictions?

    If given prior notice, we can adjust the dishes on our tours to accommodate your restrictions. Please let us know your food allergies/restrictions at the time you book our tour, so we  have ample time to prepare alternative options.
