Thank you Indochina Pioneer for helping us make our memories!
I cannot thank this company, and specifically the wonderful Sally Thai, enough for making our trip through Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia so special and memorable. From the moment we sent a general enquiry of what we were thinking about doing to being dropped off at our final destination the communication and organisation has been exceptional. All of the arrangements (flights, hotels, guides, drivers, sites etc.) were in place and all of the various teams and people who supported us on our journey were welcoming, engaging, informed and flexible. Although Sally stayed in regular contact it was out of courtesy rather than necessity and we never had any occasion to seek her help or assistance to fix anything. Accepting we weren’t restricted to a low budget I don’t know how this would compare from a cost perspective, to us it doesn’t matter now as we have had the most amazing time and memories that will last forever thanks to this company and their people. Finally we need to mention the virus, we took the right precautions and didn’t let what we considered to be an acceptable risk take over what we did so we carried on. We had the advantage of seeing the major sites without the crowds although clearly the vibrancy and experience of the nightlife and markets were somewhat diminished. The countries are “open for business” and with visible signs of the recommended precautions, e.g hand cleaner, readily available at sites and restaurants we were able to continue almost as if we were anywhere else in the world.
