"Vietnam, Laos & Cambodia"

We are three friends who booked a private 26-day tour of Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia with Indochina Pioneer and had an amazing time. Our travel agent, Sally, was not only a great professional, but also an amazing person, personable, sweet and eager to do anything possible to turn our trip into a unique travel experience. She was in daily contact with us, making sure that everything would be perfect for us and she was available 24/7. Everything was beyond our expectations: hotels, activities, guides, transportation, meals, etc. The itinerary itself was set to meet our needs as historians, combining visits to archaeological sites and museums, with leisure activities and cultural events.

There are no words strong enough to recommend Indochina Pioneer and, especially, Sally. Special thanks to Cong, our guide in Hoi An, Lao, our guide in Sapa, Mon, our guide in Vientiane and Vuthi, our guide in Siem Reap. We learned so many things from these amazing, always smiling, intelligent people, not only about the history of their countries, but also about their culture and modern life in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. Overall, we feel like we booked a tour and in the end, we got ourselves one-in-a-lifetime- experience.

"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.

"Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Samui"

We wanted a hassle-free vacation for our 25th anniversary. After doing our research and comparing our options, we chose Indochina Pioneer. Sally with IP was very helpful in getting what we wanted. The trip was absolutely hassle-free from the moment we landed to the time we were dropped off at the airport. All the selected accommodations (all 4 stars) were perfect. We wouldn’t have changed a thing. The tour guides in Bangkok and Chiang Mai were great and very helpful. We would definitely choose Indochina Pioneer again for our next Asian adventure.

"Best Cambodia trip ever!"

Sally created the most enjoyable trip to Cambodia for our family. Everything was wonderful from the tours, food, hotels, guides and entertainment! We didn’t have to worry about a thing. Everything was planned so well and traveling between Phnom Phen and Siem Reap was so convenient. The boutique hotels were beautiful and relaxing. We’d definitely use Indochina again and can’t wait to plan our next trip.

"Personalized tour of Vietnam and Cambodia"

Sally was so helpful setting this all up and taking care of us along the way. The tour guides were fantastic in both countries. Everything was taken care of for us and the accommodations were in great parts of town – especially Hanoi. I have already and will continue to recommend to friends.
