A wonderful way of visiting gay Vietnam and what it has to offer. First four nights in the northern capital of Hanoi, followed by an internal flight to spend four nights in the southern capital Saigon (now Ho Chi Minh), then a return flight back to your starting point of Hanoi. Two capitals when the country was divided into North Vietnam and South Vietnam. Now combined as one, you get to enjoy the contrasts between the too. Needless to say you are in the safe hands of our Holiday Houseboy, your gay friendly tour guide, who will lead the way and look after your safety and welfare at all times. With some exciting activities planned ahead.

      “Tony was amazing in Hanoi! so thankful I booked him. He truly is 5 star. Here are some words to describe him: Knowledgeable, Energetic, Enthusiastic, Polite, Fun, Respectful, Kind, just a great guy to be with.” – Errol, Canada.

      “Tony was wonderful. We booked him for an all day 12 hour tour and it exceeded our expectations. His English is very good and he has a superb knowledge of Hanoi. Perhaps the highlight, and one of the main reasons we booked a private tour, was that he was able to take us to places to eat that we never would have found otherwise. We enjoyed his company so much that we asked him to join us for my birthday dinner, which occurred when we were in Hanoi. Highly recommended.” – Paul, USA
