Why we love this trip Balance on a tiny streetside stool in Hanoi's Old Quarter, soaking up the buzzy vibes and the city's best entertainment - the traffic Who'd have thought green seas

Geckos is part of Intrepid which is/was based in Melbourne, Oz and Balham in London. Intrepid was part of the huge TUI travel group until last year when it split away. If you book a tour through a travel company then you're going to pay more than doing it yourself. For a cheap trip like this you're probably better off booking yourself. But it depends on whether you have the spare time and can be bothered. Many people are time poor and cash rich. I always book my own trips but it often involves many hours of research into options. There are some amazing specialist travel companies out there like Exodus (also part of TUI) who do trips like this one to the North Pole on a nuclear powered icebreaker. I've researched this and you can book it yourself cheaper. But they also do trips you can't practically organise yourself.

I did an Antarctic adventure last Xmas and aside from the cruise which I sourced myself I got everything pre and post cruise and itinerary to get to and from the ship myself.

You can sort Arctic cruises yourself and even excursions, Arctic is far more accessible than the Antarctic where you should be able to sort some of your own excursions - you obviously can't sort your own in the Antarctic when you are landing on inhabited places and doing water landings. Booking a package like you've provided in the link here you are paying thousands over as in essence it's just a cruise, go direct to Quark or Polar Cruises and sign up for all their newsletters. You'll get much better offers.

I've planned my own trip to Vietnam for Christmas/New Year and have three weeks flying into Hanoi and out of HCM I'm visiting some of these places and other less know ones such as Con Dao.

I'm staying in good rated places, to give you an idea my NYE accommodation was £16 a night for 2. I'm doing three weeks for a fraction of this price. Perhaps I need to do a Vietnam deal....
That tour looks a little out of my budget :'(

Total cost with return flights with Turkish Airlines from London worked out £2841. We still need to add airport transfers but there a claimed $18 each way.
