I can hardly believe I’m going to ask this, but with my 3 week Vietnam trip coming up in just one month, I find myself needing to ask the question:
Do I take an organized tour?
I haven’t been on a tour in ages, but those that I have been on have been generally pretty good. The reason for this departure from my usual “show up and hope for the best” routine is that I don’t want to miss anything BUT I’m also feeling really lazy, really busy, and I don’t want to plan anything.
Important to note: I haven’t yet planned anything. I have a plane ticket and a travel visa.
So, should I take a 12 day tour? It seems like it would hit up all the spots I would go to anyway. I would have time for a dive, and would either have 4 days or a week at the end to go trekking in Sapa.
Thoughts? Suggestions? Would love some input on this one!!
PS: the tour I’m thinking of is G Adventures’ Vietnam on a Shoestring
