Health and Fitness

For all tours, please closely read the itinerary and note the physical rating to decide if you are fit to participate. As a general rule of thumb and to get the most out of your trip, we recommend a good physical health and if in doubt, consult your doctor or physician before leaving your home country. We do not walk at altitude nor set distance records, but some treks can still be demanding. Expect hilly terrain and high temperatures. Go Beyond and its guides reserve the right to exclude a participant without refund if said traveller is unable to complete the itinerary without undue risk to him/herself or to the group.

Small and very handy first aid kits should be readily available in your home country. We recommend you purchase a kit before departure along with any personal medication you may require. Do not rely on guides, as they are legally prohibited from administering any type of drug including headache medicine and antibiotics.

If you suffer from any conditions, physical, mental or otherwise, you are obligated to notify Go Beyond in writing prior to booking. Go Beyond reserves the right to decline a booking if said conditions pose a danger. Likewise, failure to notify Go Beyond of any such condition may result in your denial of travel. Similarly, travelers should be aware that Asian countries have medical standards and facilities that may vary greatly from what you are used to in your home country. Women who are or think they may be pregnant must consult a physician before engaging in any activity with Go Beyond or before booking any trips. Any person who is concerned about their ability to travel should contact Go Beyond and will then be recommended a trip suitable for these specific needs (if available).

Luggage Storage

Go Beyond provides luggage storage at all of our service offices, both for the day and if you go on a tour for several days. When going on a tour and you come back to our office, we recommend that you only bring what is needed for the tour and leave larger bags behind. Not only will this make it more convenient for you, but also allow for better and easier commuting.

Optional Activities

On some of our tours, there may be free time and/or options for additional activities. These are not included in the tour and do not form a contract. Go Beyond is not responsible for anything that may arise from a traveler taking part in optional activities. Optional activities are undertaken at the cost of the traveler.

Running Late?

Please always respect the departure times when stated in itinerary. These are carefully considered to ensure you the most comfortable journey and to ensure you make opening times where applicable. In case you, contrary to expectations, are running late for a tour departure, please use the contact details on the front of your voucher to alert Go Beyond. If we do not hear from you the tour will depart at latest 15 minutes after stated departure time and no refund will be given in case you miss the departure.

Safety and Security

Most national governments provide updated advice services on safety issues involved with international travel. We recommend that you stay updated on your government’s advice for the latest travel information – before departure and while on the road.

Go Beyond endeavours to conduct its operations safely and your guide has the authority to amend or cancel any part of the trip itinerary if it is deemed necessary due to safety concerns. However, Go Beyond is not liable to you in the event of injury, death, financial loss or any other damages incurred as a result of Force Majeure, e.g., political turmoil, riots, war, landslides, flooding, etc. Go Beyond requires you to carry insurance that covers such unforeseeable circumstances.

Adventure trips, trekking, hiking and water based activities such as swimming, snorkeling and diving inherently holds an element of danger and excitement. While we take every precaution to ensure these are carried out in agreement with operating standards, please have a balanced approach to safety and note that participation will always be at your own risk.

Travel Documents and Visas

Note that most nationalities are required to obtain visas for travelling to certain countries in Asia. You are yourself responsible for obtaining valid visa to enter Vietnam, if needed. Consult your embassy’s website in the destination country or the destination’s embassy website in their country for the latest visa requirements. If you are in doubt of who to contact, please feel free to contact us via the following page: http://gobeyond.asia/contact. Make sure your passport is valid for at least 6 months after your return date. Go Beyond cannot be held responsible for any errors or omissions in regards to visa rules.

Weather

Go Beyond operates trips in Vietnam throughout the year—including the rainy season—and changes may result from inclement weather and other unforeseen circumstances. We reserve the right to change the itinerary according to such circumstances as we see fit to ensure the best experience for our travelers.

Additional Expenditures

Take into account your personal spending habits when deciding how much money to bring. Are meals included? How much will you drink and party? How many souvenirs do you intend to bring home? Remember to include tips in your calculations and we also recommend keeping an emergency fund for unforeseen circumstances beyond our and your control.

Meals

Go Beyond gives you the opportunity to try authentic Vietnamese food. When meals are not included, your guide will be able to suggest restaurants and the best dishes during your trip. Your guide will normally order a variety of dishes to sample. Notify your tour leader of allergies or dietary restrictions.

Money

We recommend withdrawing money from ATMs, which are widely available throughout Vietnam. This has the advantage of keeping your money safe in the bank – not vulnerable in your back pocket. Remember to bring your bank’s emergency contact details in the event that your card is stolen. You might also consider bringing a spare card in case one gets stolen. Remember to keep them separated. We recommend you bring some spare cash in USD in case of emergency.

Respectful Dress

Remember that dressing is generally conservative throughout Asia – especially outside major cities. Go Beyond therefore strongly recommends modest clothing that covers your shoulders and knees. Loose, lightweight, long clothing is both respectful and cool in the predominantly hot Asian climate. Avoid tank tops on the beach and never sunbathe topless. Men and women alike are often required to wear pants that cover the legs in temples and religious sites.

Tipping

Go Beyond employs local guides who greatly appreciate recognition of services rendered. Tipping about US$ 5 per day (if you are happy with the service) is appropriate, but not compulsory. We suggest US$ 3 per day for porters (if applicable). For drivers who render services for several days in a row, US$ 3 per day is appropriate. Remember, a tip is not compulsory and should only be given when you receive excellent service.

At small restaurants you may want to round up to the nearest US$ 2. At upscale restaurants, a tip of 10% is appreciated. (Note that upscale restaurants often levy a 10% service charge on the bill. Additional tipping is at your discretion).

What to bring

Pack according to the tour you have chosen. If you’re going trekking, bring appropriate shoes. If you’re going diving, bring your suit etc. Go Beyond encourages you to pack only necessities. Although there are some tours and trips in which you can leave your luggage behind for a day’s excursion, we generally require you to carry your own gear. For this reason, we strongly encourage you to pack in a backpack with straps and back support and a smaller daypack. We strongly discouragehard case luggage!

What you plan to bring we will leave up to you, but generally remember all your travel documents and keep a copy of your passport as well as your travel insurance card on you at all times. Give priority to lightweight and fast drying clothes just as long sleeved shirts and trousers are recommended for trekking and chilly evenings. If you are travelling in the rainy season, remember umbrella or waterproof shield. Lastly respect local culture and bring appropriate clothes for temples and religious sites. You might also find it useful to bring a phrase book – just a couple of words in the local language will give you tremendous credit. Lastly, we are in the tropics so remember sunscreen and insect repellent!
