"Our fantastic Vietnam trip with Indochina Pioneer"
A couple of our close friends, my wife and I were planning to visit Vietnam for a while, but were not sure if we should do this on our own, or to use one of the travel agencies in Vietnam. A month or two later, a friend of my wife mentioned that she has just come back from Vietnam, used Indochina Pioneer to advise her on the itinerary and get trip organized. She told us she was totally impressed with them. Before contacting Nam Duong, we did some research and were fully impressed, as Indochina Pioneer’s reviews were outstanding. To make long story short, we asked Nam to prepare the itinerary for a two weeks tour of Vietnam. The response was prompt, we loved Nam’s proposal and two weeks later we were on our way.
Everything from the pickup at the airport, hotel choice, vehicles and especially the team of local guides were superb! We spent two weeks sightseeing and learning the history of Vietnam while visiting Saigon and Mekong delta, Hue, Hoi An, Danang, Hanoi and Ha Long Bay. We took millions of pictures and left with unforgettable memories of wonderful people we met during our trip and are grateful to Nam Duong and his team for getting this organized. We strongly recommend Indochina Pioneer. They did absolutely superb job. Thank you, Nam and your team!

"Family Fun in Thailand"
Amazing Vietnam private tour
We stayed in Bangkok (3 Nights), Chiang Rai (1 Night), Chiang Mai (3 Nights) and had a guide the entire trip from the airport for pick up in Bangkok to the airport on departure in Chiang Mai. The tour was very well put together and Lam with Indochina Pioneer was more than accommodating to our changes for what probably seemed like a million back and forth emails. Aurora (our guide in Bangkok) was absolutely amazing, not only for us, but also our children (3 and 7). everything we mentioned she made sure we did or at least knew how to do it when we were done for the day with our tour. Our guide in Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai (Tree) was also amazing in showing us more than we could have imagined in Northern Thailand.
"The tour was excellent"
We asked Lam at Indochina Pioneer to arrange a tour for 2 couples that would include a week in Cambodia, a week in Laos and 2 weeks in the northern part of Vietnam. We had done the southern part of Vietnam 2 years ago. We were not disappointed.
The tour was excellent, we had a private mini bus with driver and an English speaking guide, that was from each area we visited. All flights, pickup / drop off at of each the airports within these countries was arranged by our tour representative, as well as hotels and any admission to tourist sites.
The tours were very impressive, we got to see the so many great attractions from amazing ancient heritage sites to country and mountain vistas.
There were no hiccups in our time touring these countries, everything flowed smoothly, and we were in control of our time. If we had seen enough temples for that day then we would cut it short and pick something else to see or just call it a day. The guide and drivers were very flexible to meet our needs.
We have passed on Lam’s name and Indochina Pioneer contact data to several friends, and 1 couple has used them recently to visit Thailand and Vietnam and after talking with them they were very impressed with the service.
I am sure we will be using Lam again in the future.
"It truly was an amazing experience"
For my husband’ birthday he wanted a trip to Vietnam. From north to south, Indochina Pioneer took care of everything. We had wonderful tour guides, and the trip kept getting better, and better. Something we couldn’t imagine, as each destination was amazing. Our hotels were great, food was awesome, and the culture we received was something we will never forget. Our tour guides, Mr. Tony in Ha Noi, Ms. Lindh in Hoi An, and Mr. Som in Ho Chi Minh City, were the best! I cannot imagine seeing and doing all we did without their guidance. It truly was an amazing experience!

"Great organisation and excellent tour guides"
We used Indochina for our recent 14-day Vietnam holiday and from start to finish, it was first class. From our agent Nhung Vu through to the first-class tour guides, in particular, Tony Nguyen and Wing we had a completely enjoyable and hassle-free holiday. It was so nice just arriving at a destination and being greeted by a driver and guide, whisked off to a pre-booked hotel and then taken around and seeing the sites in each destination. I cannot speak highly enough of the whole organization. Thank you Nung, Tony and Wing for an excellent and enjoyable holiday
"Group Tour 4 adults, Cambodia,Laos and Vietnam"
I decided on Indochina Pioneers as their rates were reasonable and their correspondence excellent. I was not disappointed. Throughout the entire booking process, Nhung was fantastic. During the tour, if I needed to contact her I had immediate replies. One hotel we stayed at was not up to standard, within an hr Nhung had us moved to another, much better standard. Now that is service. Our trip was almost 3 weeks so there were many opportunities it’s for hiccups but tours were perfect, guides were great, it was all I had asked for. Would book with them again, and I highly recommend….if you can get Nhung to manage your booking, even better.

"Our favorite family trip"
This winter we wanted to take a family vacation that was not only fun but educational. This was one of our favorite trips. We have traveled a lot and I have to say that working with Indochina Pioneer and Ms. Nhung Vu made this a very well planned out and exciting vacation for our family. Ms.Nhung Vu was so sweet and knowledgeable about every area that we wanted to visit in Vietnam and Cambodia. She had a perfect understanding of the amount of time that we had available and the places that we wanted to experience. She was always available by email or phone to answer any of my questions. We traveled from Hanoi, Hoi An, Siem Reap, Phu Quoc for some beach time and then back to touring in Can Tho and Ho Chi Minh. Each place we visited taught us more about the wonderful people and the culture of Vietnam. We loved how charming Hoi An was with it streets lit up with beautiful lanterns, we boated down the Mekong River and we loved spending a night on the Era Cruise ship on Ha Long Bay. We are very particular in our hotels that we stay in and Nhung gave me plenty of options with a range of prices. She went over and beyond giving us helpful information on traveling, tipping, sites to visit and even restaurant suggestions. We also wanted to have private tours and Nhung organized the most wonderful tour guides in each city. Mr. Tran, Mr. Ngoc, Mr. Chhaiy and Mrs. Ngoc were all so sweet and knowledgeable about every site and history of their country. They always made sure we felt safe and some organized the best food tours. Someone was always there greeting us after each plane ride and the drivers were always on time. We would highly recommend Indochina Pioneer, Ms. Nhung Vu, and these tour guides. We can not say enough wonderful things about our trip and how smoothly it went.
"Great Family and Friends Trip to Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos"
Indochina Pioneer made up a fantastic itinerary, great attractions/sites and knowledgable guides everywhere. Its costs are comparable and even below some others, but overall a great value is given our group size (6) and trip duration 14-24 days, (some of our group planned to go home after 2 weeks). Kata is also knowledgeable and put together a do-able schedule daily and used above average yet affordable accommodations suitable for Seasoned US tourists.
"Indochina Pioneer was terrific!"
We put our trust in their hands as we had never traveled to South East Asia. They planned our complete trip for our group of 4, including hotels, guides, drivers, special tours, cooking classes and more. They rolled with the punches so well, changing things on the fly for us when we wanted something different as we were on our adventures. We spent a month total in Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Thailand and loved every minute. Would do it again, with them. And our tour director met us for coffee while we were in Hanoi. We had been chatting online or by video conference for months. Kata was such a delight and so knowledgeable.
