My name is John Hopkins and I'm Vicky Hopkins. And we have been working with Indochina Pioneer for our trips around Hanoi. We have been in Hanoi for a month. We chose Indochina Pioneer because friends of ours recommended them. They said that Kata the lady that we have worked with did such a wonderful job for them that they highly recommended her.
We have taken trips to Ninh Binh and to Perfumer Pagoda, to Halong Bay and they are working with our plans to travel south to Hue, Da Nang and Hoi An. And I personally enjoy so much about them and find so valuable. Is that they listen to what we want and advise and then adjust whatever they need to do to meet what we would like to do. And that has been a very important thing. Their guides have been very knowledgeable, and very good English. They’re very personable. We have been on several of private tours and it is very nice traveling in a private car with driver and the guide and it’s been very enjoyable. And that has been very important to us and has been delightful on every one of the trips.
For the trip to Halong Bay, though we chose to take a bus with a small group and I would highly recommend that to anyone to. The bus was very confortable but that way we got to visit with those travelers and we met people from all over the world. Everyone was so friendly. We kind of bonded in our little three and a half hour drive to Halong Bay. And then on the boat we personally chose to be on a smaller boat with about 14 other people that neighborhood. Again we got to meet everyone, people from over the world which was very very enjoyable. We didn't have a single grouch that we have to throw overboard. The accommodation on the boat was really really nice, much better than I really expected.
And the food was to die for. It was I expected kind of lower quality because it was the small boat and you’re out on the Bay. No, it was a 4 or 5 stars restaurant quality. How many, how many entrees, no not entrees courses that we have? Seven or eight.
I think that we had seven or eight courses for the two different light meals that we had. I can’t, I can’t talk well enough about the trip to Halong Bay. It was the highlight of the trip so far in the trips that Kata has prepared for us. And if I say no we don’t want do this. Fine, no problems, she offered other suggestions. Ok that sounds good so we really enjoyed them.
That is very important to us because other travel agents say: here’s ours book of tours, pick one and you have no input, you have no ability to make modification or adjust for what you want to do. And that is not in the case Indochina Pioneer and that is what has made them so special.
And also we had to admit that we sometimes are a little difficult to work with. And that we procrastinate on making our final decision. Well maybe here, maybe there, may be this and change your mind. Kata has worked us so graciously and did very kind about putting out with that our sort of thing. So we would highly recommened anyone to work with Indochina Pioneer anytime in the future.
We are coming from Toronto, Canada and we booked our trip with Indochina Pioneer, with Quyen and I just found him online and just contacted him and arranged our trip. He gave me perfect guidance and, you know, so we just booked with him, we are really really happy. This is our last day and set to go! Truly, really good time, we have wonderful, wonderful time.

The tour guides there were just excellent. The accomodations in HCM City and in Siem Reap were excellent
We had great service at far as pick up we had great itinerary which they followed exactly during our trip we got to do every thing that we wanted. The tour guide kept you moving along if you dragged behind so you could accomplished everything that you had intended to do or that was planned your itinerary also. But There're also flexibilty in the itinerary that the travel guides/ tour guides were great with us, arranging or Changing anything we needed depending on how the timing went.
I'm Carmel Preyra from Canada and I'm here with the Indochina Pioneer Company. This is an unsolicitated little review, I didn't get pay for it so it's from the heart
It's flightening company but it is an excellent company. I also wanna say that when I went to the North. Because I were mostly interested in the tribal people my guide and my driver works spectacular. They were well informed, they were safe, they answered my questions took me wherever and wherever I wanted. It was like traveling with family.
I undertook this trip alone. Some people think it is not good for women but I would recommend it to anyone, who wants to travel to the North West, the North East.
It's the excellent company, very good reputation I had a wonderful time. I will comeback and join them again and have another goodtime, enjoy the people, the moutains, the sceneries which is really national treasure.
So come to Vietnam and enjoy the North!
Hello. I'm Tony Mcvery. I'm from Galway, in Ireland... I'm over here on holidays in Vietnam, particularly in Hanoi, I've been here for last four, five days the operator Indochina Pioneer,who have organized everything for me. They've done really wonderful job.
From the first time that I contacted them by email, I was talking to very nice lady, very efficiently lady Kata. She organize total many days I was here, have been here for 4 days, and she put together a schedule for me. She did an excellent job!
My guide, my private tour guide 4, 5 day here, Mr. Tam he rang me, and wish me well, explained me that he would be with me next morning in the hotel.
I am nearly at the end of my holiday now. I had a fantastic experience. My guide Mr. Tam as I say, so so professional, so so friendly. He wasn't just a tour guide for me, he actually is a very good friend of mine now. So all in all, all I can say is I would strongly recommend Indochina Pioneer.
They organize fantastic tour, we spent 2 days in Halong Bay, we've seen whole city. It has just been just incredible experiences. So I will strongly recommend that anybody who thinking come to Vietnam, whether it'll be Saigon, whether it'll be Hanoi, whether it'll be Hue, whether it'll be Laos, Cambodia.
Hello, my name is Chris and this is Susan and we're from Canbera Albert, Canada.
we would like to say few words about experiences of traveling with Indochina Pioneer.
we had nothing but good, positive things to say about the company.
When I first contacted with Lam about setting up a tour. He was very prompt, gave me lots of options,we decided what we wanted to do on our own and he made them come true. Our experiences with our guides had been excellent.
They've been on time, very easy to see at the airport. They helped us with many questions. We stayed in excellent hotels.
And the food has been very fabulous, hasn't it?
Even we got invited into a guide's house into for lunch, for family day, family for Tet. He invited us to be part of his family which we were honored.
And any thing that we wanted they came up with some suggestiions. The restaurants that they suggested had been good, if not excellent and I will definetely use them again on our next journey .
The we can book the longer trip. They know everything. We learn alot...
If you want to come to Vietnam, we highly recommend it. This is the beautiful country, please use the company.
