The most affordable, comprehensive trips of their class
Here’s the bottom line: VBT’s prices are lower than any other active-vacation tour company in the travel business, and we give you more for your money—without sacrificing quality. Why overpay when you can enjoy outstanding quality that is both affordable and more comprehensive? Unlike our competitors, we include nearly everything for one low price, with no last-minute “extras” to boost your cost. How do we do it? We buy directly, carefully manage our long-term vendor relationships and the exchange rates of our foreign currency, and most importantly, we accept lower profit margins in order to pass on savings to you.
You demand excellence – we deliver
We continually fine tune our routes and itineraries, quality check our accommodations, and sample the same meals you are served—all to ensure that your high standards are being met at every step of your vacation. Plus, we listen carefully to what you tell us. Your helpful survey answers and creative suggestions let us know exactly how to keep improving. The results are dramatic. VBT quality ratings are at the highest in the company’s history—87.5% of VBT travelers rate their trip experience “Excellent.”
You’ll find a rare friend in your Trip Leader!
There’s nothing like traveling with a local to get the most out of your new destination. That’s why every VBT vacation is guided by two Trip Leaders who are local to the region. A fascinating blend of tour guide, coach, driver, and caregiver, your Trip Leaders will delight you with their detailed knowledge of customs and cuisine, knack for bringing you closer to your traveling companions, and unflappable good cheer.

Here’s why 98% of our travelers say they’ll travel with us again
Choose the pace that's perfect for you
“We always had a full day and the evenings did not end till late, but not once did we feel tired. Taking this trip was like being in the fountain of youth. It made me feel young again.” VBT Traveler—Puglia
Freedom to roam
“It’s a well thought-out tour with something of interest for all ages, from a delightful home visit, a country picnic, and, of course, windmills. There is also time to discover and explore on your own. Highly recommended as both an invigorating, as well as relaxing, holiday.” VBT Traveler—Holland
Cultural encounters & natural beauty
“The accommodations were topnotch, the food wonderful, the Trip Leaders outstanding, and the people of Vietnam warm and friendly. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this country, landscape and city alike. There is simply no other way to experience the culture of this diverse country than through the back roads on a bike. For us it was the trip of a lifetime.” VBT Traveler—Vietnam
