A custom tour or a tailor-made one is personal travel planning service designed and arranged just for you, in which we include everything you wish to see and do during your trip. This kind of tour is suitable for everyone such as a solo traveler, family, friends, business traveler, and private incentive group. It can be any date, any place and in any style that you want to travel.
The joy of it is that your private tours to the destinations, that we cover, are designed around your requirements and you are not restricted to the set itinerary of a group departure. The program can be as long or as short as you wish. The standard of accommodation and length of the tours are up to you.
You just tell us what you want (either in detail, or give us some parameters to work within), and then we arrange services to fit your wishes for your holiday. We also advise you on improvements which you might want to consider.
Our aim is to turn your travel dreams into reality. Contributing our destination knowledge and experience and working closely with you to handcraft an itinerary around your specific travel preferences to arrive at the best possible experience.
Custom Vietnam Travel is a local based tour operator and we really know our stuff we offer in Vietnam in particular and in Indochina in general.
Tip: Look at our sample private tours on the website before planning your custom-made tour. It will give you all kinds of information, ideas, and routes, as well as some suggested places to visit with descriptions. Then have our travel specialist put things together and tailor-made the lifetime travel experience for you.
Is a Custom Tour right for you?
Surfing through our website, do you like the look of one of our suggested itineraries but would like to stay at alternative accommodation or include a few extra days and extend your holiday?
Are you going on holiday to Vietnam to relax rather than spend your time packing and unpacking, moving from one place to the next?
Are you celebrating a special occasion - perhaps your honeymoon, a special birthday or an anniversary? Why not enjoy each other in privacy without being part of a larger group.
Are you traveling Vietnam to stay with friends or family and wishing to add-on a safari, a cruise, or even some self-drive exploration?
Maybe you only want to be away for a long weekend, or perhaps you have an extended amount of time to enjoy traveling and would like us to help with part of it?
If you have a limited amount of time, group departure dates often do not fit.
You may well want a private vehicle, or the very best naturalist the region has to offer.
If the answer is YES to any of the above, then a Custom Tour is the perfect solution!
No matter if you are looking for Vietnam Private Tours or Indochina Private Tours or just a private custom tour in one part of the region, we are here for you. When we send you our first proposal, you are free to add or remove anything you wish in order to make it suit your individual requirements.

Smiley (Phuong Nguyen) - Managing Director
Hello, my name is Phuong and I go with the nickname “Smiley” that passengers chose to call me while I was working as a professional tour guide/ tour leader for number travel companies in Vietnam. After almost 10 years of traveling and taking tours all over the country, I founded Custom Vietnam Travel and run the company with my wife, Fiona who shares my passion and ambition.

Here below are some of Custom Vietnam Travel’s key persons that I am proud of
Fiona (Fiona Nguyen) - Sales Manager
Studying in tourism faculty of a university in Hanoi, I was trained to be a tourist guide. I really loved this job which helped me meeting many friends all over the world as well as to show them how lovely Vietnam is. Although I love leading tours and moving arround, working as a tourist guide seemed not to be a suitable job for me after starting family and having babies while travel is my passion.
Thanks to my last job - tour guide and years of traveling all around Indochina, I got to know well how different tours going, what most oversea travelers are interested in. These have become great foundation for my current job and I am able to inspire my travel consultant team at the office. Having helped thousands of travelers building their own dream trips to Indochina makes me love my job so much. Our beautiful Vietnam has so many things to offer. Come with us, we will make your travel dream comes true!
Huyen (Huyen Vu) - Operation Manager

I think travelling is an experience with many emotions. Therefore, I always do my best to bring the best services to our valued clients as you deserve it. And nothing is more wonderful than seeing our travelers off with big satisfied smiles at the end of the trips. I'm here with our team to ensure that your holiday to Vietnam is a memorable one.
Minh (Minh Ninh) - Travel specialist
"Xin chao! My name is Minh. I have over 9 year experience in tourism and hospitality industry. I like travelling and that’s why I chose this work. Travelling means discovering new lands, meeting new friends, listening new stories and having new experiences.

I am very proud to be a member of the Custom Vietnam Travel and work in a very professional environment with a great team.

As a local travel specialist, I always want to help travelers find the most suitable route, the most appropriate time for the trip, and the accurate services to suit each customer's needs.

by traveler Gene Mechanic from Portland City, USA
If you want to experience a beautiful, culturally fascinating, and remote area of Vietnam, I highly recommend taking a tour with Smiley of Custom Vietnam Travel to North Vietnam’s Lao Cai and Ha Giang Provinces, which my wife and I did in April, 2012.
Smiley is a wonderful guide with his great sense of humor...Read more
by traveler Hang Nguyen from Hanoi,Vietnam
We used this travel agent for a few times when my parents- in-law from England came over for a visit. All I can say is we really enjoyed our trips with this agent. They were really professional, very well- organised. We didn't want to follow the normal tours as other people, and this agent was so good at arranging for us a private program as we needed! Will definitely recommend this travel agent to everyone and we will for sure use this company again

DON'T EVEN CONSIDER ANYONE ELSE!
Smiley and his wife, Phuong, made our adventure hugely successful. If you are including some time in Cambodia also, do let these two arrange your guides and hotels there as well. Every day of our two weeks was outstanding. More importantly, this genial young man is a joy to be around. They will organize your time according to your desires, or you can trust them to do everything for you.
