With offices in Australia & Vietnam since 1994, Griswald's ™ have been a travel and tour operator specialising in tailor made tours, travel, vacation & holiday's in Vietnam for singles, couples, families and small groups. We provide a quality alternative for those who want a more personal experience from their time in Vietnam.
If you're after something a bit different, with more flexibility than the usual group tour & with no fixed departure dates, then we might be just what you're looking for. Choose the accommodation style you want, the various destinations in Vietnam that you prefer & for roughly the same cost as a group tour, Griswald's ™ will tailor make a tour that's just right for you & at a price you'll be pleasantly surprised with too.
The price we quote will be without any of these extra in country payments or compulsory daily tips to all & sundry and exactly what's included will be clearly set out from the start.
* NEW * To see more about our tours we operate, please have a look at our You Tube Channel.
We've got lots of short movies about the actual hotels you'll be staying in as well as other interesting & relevant stuff too. Our films are all short & a bit rough (we know) but they're more honest than the heavily produced &/or photo shopped stuff that we're all a bit tired of.
Join us for a short video trip from Ha Noi all the way to HCM City & be sure to check our Hoi An Flics too. Fighting your way through the Tailor Shop maze can be a bit of a night mare & this will definatley help !!!
* Doing business with companies over the internet still makes some people, understandably, nervous. Only Licensed Australian Travel Agents, like us, are eligible to be members of the Travel Compensation Fund.

Griswald's have enjoyed lots of great reviews in various publications around the world. In Australia, the UK, the USA, Canada, Singapore, Hong Kong etc & in publications like the Sydney Morning Herald, the New York Times, the Boston Globe & with Singapore Airlines to name just a few.
* NEW * Just recently the very popular, BBC - Fast Track's team, popped in whilst in Ha Noi. Rajan Datar, Mike London & the crew were so kind & we wish to thank them again, very much. They were doing a show on Viet Nam & it's really good, like so many BBC shows are. Fast Track (click) Viet Nam Direct & it's well worth a look.
Our REAL Kangaroo Café ™ in Ha Noi made it into the International Cow 50 of the most amazing burger joints in the world list & our Ha Long Bay Tour has been featured in 2 travel shows as well.
In Nov 2008 we were featured in the well known, UK based, Rough Guide to Far Eastern Adventures which features the very likeable, funny & popular Toby Amies. A few years ago we were featured in a local Aussie travel show with a former home Handi Man show bloke called Great Train Adventures.
Toby & the Rough Guide crew were just great to work with. Unlike some in the film industry, they were honest, decent, funny & were really kind to us, our staff & everyone we met along the way & we wish to thank them again most sincerely.
Vietnam has everything from it's remote mountain hill tribe areas to it's amazing 3000 Km beach. Vietnam is ideal if you're looking for a safe, affordable, beautiful & unforgettable place to take yourself or your partner for your next vacation.

Also, please have a gander at our Testimonials page where you'll find all kinds of nice comments from people who have travelled with us. One of our all time favourites is from a great Aussie couple (Paul & Frances) who nearly didn't make it to Viet Nam at all. We're very grateful for their very kind comments & please click here to see what they had to say about their trip with us.
These days with all self promotion & often paid for but so called independent reviews (???) on the various travel forums it's not easy to work out just who's who in the zoo !
Over the last 18 or so years we've had literally thousands of people choose us to go with for their trip to Vietnam. Time & again our customers & some for their 2nd & 3rd trip have said they chose us because they wanted to go with the tour operator & not just another ticket seller.
Please take a look through our website and afterwards we think you'll agree,

Maps, to peruse.
We've tried to make our site as open, informative and, of course, entertaining as possible .
