In 1997, three colleagues from Hanoi with a passion for adventure decided to set up a travel company that offered unique and exciting tours, while fostering the natural and cultural preservation of their country.
Since then, Handspan Travel Indochina has been owned and staffed by people for whom travel is not simply an interesting job, but an all-consuming passion for exploring and understanding the world and the diversity of cultures that can be found in our Planet.
Once our head office in Hanoi was well established, Handspan strengthened its operations on a national scale in Vietnam by opening branch offices in Sapa (2003) and Ho Chi Minh City (2006).
In the meantime, we also widened our coverage with a representative office in Germany and by expanding our operations to Cambodia and Laos in partnership with local experts.
Since our founding, we have grown into a family of more than 70 members, and have earned our solid reputation by delivering quality service, by maintaining small group sizes, and by exploring new destinations off the standard tourist path - all while remaining true to the principles of responsible tourism, basically because we believe that tourism is about connecting people and that the differences that separate us can be bridged with the span of an extended hand.
