Kirsten Harris Australia
Amazing experience with so much to see and learn, always something new happening and incredible sites to see all the way along the adventure. My suggestion however is to read up on it first to know what to look out for so you can advise your tour guide you are interested in particular places. That way if they come across your travel path you will not miss out. Our tour guide Ha is very fun loving and knowledgable about history, Vietnam traditions and life in general. Jovial and always cracking a joke and making the whole experience enjoyable and interesting. Thank you very much Ha!
Chris Nishida from USA
We just got back from using Indochina Pioneer Travel for a private tour of Vietnam, Cambodia and Lao. Indochina's best strength is their responsiveness. They will respond before the trip and during. We were also worried about booking through a Vietnam agency directly, however, this agency came through with what they promised and calling us many times along the way to see if everything was o.k. They will also give you a phone to use during the trip. The guides they use are wonderful. We were very impressed to have the one guide in Siem Reap who is a professor of Anthropology, Jackie Chan and Angela Jolie's tour guide, a UN delegate and a director of a orphanage he founded. He does tours to support his orphanage that doesn't even have electricity. The best is to let Indochina know what you want to see, level of hotel and perhaps what you don't want to do. They can make a tour of your interests and places you want to see. You will see many villages and everyday people on their tour. They also provide a comprehensive itinerary and information bulletin on the country. The cost may be a little higher, however, the individual attention you get and all the communications is worth it. For booking: Lam - firstname.lastname@example.org, or Quyen email@example.com If you wish to book with Indochina we have a gift voucher for you to take off $50. So. East Asia is still not too commercialized, people are very nice and the children are adorable. We had many people help us cross the street (a challenge in the big cities).
