Our Services

Personalized, custom, private guided holidays
 It’s like having a true friend in Vietnam plan your vacation and show you around!


There are many companies offering tours and vacations in Vietnam. Why choose Sao La Tours? Most simply, we care. We are Trang & Son, and we created Sao La Tours because travel and helping people are our passions, and we want to make travel affordable and accessible. We don't create package tours, no fixed dates, no middle-man markup-only years of experience and knowledge to build a vacation you will love. We work with you individually and work with you to create a custom itinerary, and we take pride in our attention to all your details.

A Vietnam native living in Hanoi, Trang has 8+ years of experience creating holidays and vacations for thousands of clients, taking them on journey's throughout Vietnam and SE Asia. Son-Henry with 15 years of experience in business and guest satisfaction.

Send us a note, tell us what type of travel experience you are looking for, and we'll suggest experienced ideas on the best places to visit in Vietnam, give you honest opinions about destinations, hotels and activities, and put together a free custom itinerary.

We are independent, and choose to only work with quality hotels, knowledgeable guides, and quality local companies. We are highly rated by our clients for a reason.

You don't join a group tour, we sit down with you (via Skype, Viber or phone) to plan an custom itinerary based on your parameters, desires and interests. We’ll give you our honest, experienced suggestions based on your interests, and you are in control of exactly how you want to spend each day.
Your time is precious, and you shouldn’t have to sacrifice it or share it. Your itinerary will be your own, with your own private guide. Some daily activities may join other group tours to meet locals and other travelers, and will be explicit when making your itinerary.
You’ll have your own private experienced guide for the duration of your trip, to get you from place to place, work the details along the way, and provide insights and personal knowledge of the country and culture. You can decide how involved you would like your guide to be.  We hire only the best local people as they are key to ensuring you have a fantastic experience.
From your initial planning until the moment you finish your trip, you’ll have a personal, local consultant in Vietnam to rely on, whose only goal is you being happy with every aspect of your trip.


With 8 years of experience planning holidays for people from all over the world, we know and can suggest a seemingly endless list of options for you to choose from. We know the best places to visit in Vietnam, the best hotels (and those to avoid) no matter what your budget and style, the best foods and local restaurants, the nooks and crannies-places to visit, activities, restaurants, transportation, and more. We will never recommend a hotel, restaurant or activity because it is more convenient or profitable for us.



Other companies offer private, custom tours. But one of the main reasons we started this business was because we care about people really enjoying their vacation/holiday, and experiencing the country. No matter who you choose, make sure they have your best interest at heart. Send us an inquiry, speak with Trang, and see for yourself.



Caring means paying attention to every detail, which we take pride in. We plan and book everything from when you arrive to when you leave-hotels, in-tour flights and transportation, activities and many meals. In planning every activity in your itinerary, choosing only the best guides, following up as weather changes, making sure everyone will be happy and every concern is anticipated. We’ll give you tips for packing and preparing for your trip as well and answer all of your questions.


Travel planning is not expensive. Costs are based on your choices of accommodation and travel, etc-we can book luxury resorts or budget hotels, and only charge a modest percentage for the service and value we add. We look for and negotiate the best prices on your hotels, activities, transportation, etc. And Sao La Tours is not beholden to any vendor.

How you travel - Quick plane, scenic bus, flexible car, or nostalgic and inexpensive train
