What do you mean by a 'Private Tour'?

Private tours are taken by one or more passengers (all in the same party) on the date of their choice, subject to schedules and availability. In other words, private tours are just you (or your group) and your Footprint guide (and driver) - no join-in travelers. Private tours offer the following benefits:

Travel at your own pace

Private tours are very flexible, allowing you to start your sightseeing excursions whenever you choose and set your own pace while traveling. However, we have listed recommended times on the itineraries to start your days.

You have your own tour guide

Our local guides are waiting to show you their countryside and places of interest. All sightseeing excursions are accompanied with your own private English-speaking local guide. This means that you can ask as many or as few questions as you like and take sightseeing trips at your own pace, with the emphasis on your own interests.

Enjoy your private transfers, boats, etc.

Get what you pay for at huge value for your money. For the road transfers, boat trips in Halong Bay, you'll have your own air-conditioned private car and private driver, air-conditioned boat with helpful captains and crews, catering to only you. This allows you to travel in comfort and to stop off along the way if you see something of interest, want to take photographs, or stop for a break.

You will have flexibility in your accommodation

With your Footprint travel consultant / sales, we design our private tours from high-end to economy hotels, which allows you to easily manage your budget at the level you wish. If you would like to stay in any other hotel other than those featured in the tour itinerary, or if you would like to update the standard of your room, just notify your travel consultant at Footprint. Anything can be easily arranged. You will be informed the difference in price.
