“Thank you Indochina - wonderful tour”

My husband and I joined by two friends recently toured Vietnam for 12 days - what an incredible experience it was . I spent many hours surfing the web looking to a decent tour operator in Vietnam who could put together a program that suited our needs. I found Lam at Indochina Pioneer to be extremely professional and knowledgeable and produced a wonderful tour covering all the highlights we requested and at a very reasonable price. The hotel selection was terrific and his tour guides in each city were friendly and very informative. we travelled from the Mekong Delta in the south up to SaPa in the north , including HCMC , Hoian, Hue, Hanoi and loved every part of it, especially the people . I highly recommend Indochina Pioneer to make your dream holiday to Vietnam a reality. Thank you Lam

“Vietnam and Cambodia Customised Tour ”

Whatever you read about Indochina Pioneer , all I can say is that anybody who gives them a bad review must need their head examining . 

The 15 day tour they put together for me and my 2 friends was absolutely fantastic and Ruby , who looked after us made sure that it was crammed full of interesting activities with friendly and knowledgeable guides , high quality vehicles and great hotels .

Also , the price for the entire trip was unbeatable including internal flights daily breakfast and lunch most days plus dinner on the Halong Bay and Mekong Delta stays .

The hotels were all 5 star rated and apart from one noisy room in Ho Chi Minh City , we had no complaints .

I will recommend using Indochina Pioneer to whoever I talk to about visiting South East Asia .

It was such a fantastic holiday and everything went like clockwork thanks to Ruby .

In a very short time we have visited Cambodia and Vietnam. We had 4 tour guides, all of them were fantastic. Knowledgable, polite and ready for your wills. If you ever would like to visit Cambodia, Laos or Vietnam, do not look anywhere else, the right address is "Indochina Pioneer".
