Vietnam Fee Tours is one of the "Vietnam Travel Free Of Charge" projects sponsored by GoAsiaDayTrip with the aim to bring the beauty of a long-lasting culture, bravery history and friendly citizens of Vietnam to visitors from all over the world. At the same time, GoAsiaDayTrip also wants to promote communication and culture exchange between travelers and Vietnamese students, making basis for the development of tourism as well as the development of Vietnamese youth. With Vietnam Free Tours, tourists have chance to experience special service with customized itinerary. Particularly, the guides are free and local. They are college students who are trained professionally by GoAsiaDayTrip. By sponsoring this project, GoAsiaDayTrip hopes to support them with a little money after each tour to invest in their study to gain better results. For the time being, Vietnam Free Tours is available in Hanoi (Hanoi Free Tours). Hopefully, in near future, with the valuable support and feedback from our beloved guests, we will be able to expand our free service to Ho Chi Minh (Saigon Free Tours), Da Nang - Hoi An (Da Nang - Hoi An Free Tours) and even in all destinations of Vietnam. Apart from free tours, in this "Vietnam Travel Free Of Charge" project, it is our honor to offer you other free service in Vietnam like Free Visa On Arrival or Free Guide Book, etc. “We wish to bring tourists the most memorable experience during your time in Vietnam. If you haven’t come to Vietnam yet, hurry up or you will miss out on on an amazing experience. Vietnam & Southeast Asia - The missing piece of your trip” (Mr. Andy Nguyen – CEO of GoAsiaDayTrip)
