We recently visited Vietnam as a Family of 12 (aged 18ys-68yrs) My daughter organised this with Mr Lam at Indochina Pioneer. Our tour started in Ho Chi Min City and ended at Hanoi. We visited so many wonderful places it is hard to pick a favourite.
We had 2 internal flights, many coach rides, various boatrides, bicycles, trains, you name it we did it
Our 2 night 3 day Trip on Halong Bay with Indochina Junk was perfect. We were treated like ROYALTY. Everywhere we went and everywhere we stayed the staff was amazing. Lovely friendly people who could not do enough for you
The Tour Guides provided by Indochina were excellent.Friendly, helpful,good English, funny. Wing, Nam, Thuy, Tony You all Rock. Sorry if I have forgotten anyone
Our Tour was amazing. Everything and everyday worked like clockwork.
"17 day tour Vietnam"
We start planning very early for our extended family ages ranging 18 to 69 holiday to Vietnam. I used TripAdvisor and found Indochina Pioneer and emailed them. I got a reply from Mr Lam extremely fast even when we were not travelling for over a year. We told Mr Lam how long we wanted to travel for and that we wanted to see a lot of Vietnam. He customised our tour perfectly once we all confirmed our flights and passport details we paid directly into there bank.
Our 17 day tour started in Ho Chi Min 3 days, Hoi An 4, Hue 2,Sapa 2, Nah Dim 1,Halong Bay 2, and finished in Hanoi 3.
All our guides Wing, Nam, Tony, and Tre spoke excellent English and they all were very energetic and informative. Our drivers were all very safe also.
I would highly recommend Mr Lam and Indochina Pioneer we feel we have seen a lot done a lot and had the best holiday and very hard to name a highlight as it was all so fantastic. Thank you

"Vietnam, is a ‘must do’ destination and I recommend Indochina Pioneer to organise it for you."
We spent 17 nights in May exploring this great country. There is so much to do and see but for us, we chose 5 main points, Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hue, Hoi An, HCM City. Lam at Indochina Pioneer organised everything for us, making our trip an experience of a lifetime. I would 100% recommend them.
"Great Tour – Amazing Experience!!!"
We booked a 15-day tour of Vietnam in February. Indochina Pioneer did an amazing itinerary of North and South Vietnam. They incorporated the best this beautiful country has to offer and along the way the guides were informative, interesting and flexible. We were able to meet Kata Tran, our initial contact, and she gave me a ride on her scooter which added to a thrilling experience! I will never forget the people I met, the history I was shown, the sights, the changing landscape from sea to mountain, that makes this country a must-see. This tour company is top-notch and they earn a 5-star in my book. I would recommend them to anyone I know wanting to see Vietnam. They are safe and reputable. Don’t hesitate!
"Definitely recommend Indochina Pioneer!!!"
I booked a very last minute trip to Hanoi and Indochina Pioneer helped me get my accommodations and tours in order just a few days before I arrived. I got the best of Hanoi and Halong Bay and would definitely use Pioneer again next time.
"What An Amazing Life Experience in Vietnam"
WOW! That doesn’t even describe what an amazing, two-week visit that my husband and I just had to Vietnam through Indochina Pioneer. Lam helped us plan what was not a trip, but a life-experience.
Lam was wonderful to deal with. He worked very hard to help us plan a very active itinerary. We enjoyed the areas Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, Sapa, Ninh Binh, Hue and Hoi An.
Everything was taken care of including hotels, flights within Vietnam, transportation, most meals, many amazing activities and private tour guides who gave us so much information and culture that we never would have received traveling on our own. These guides became life-long friends.
Lam listened to everything that we wanted in our visit and made it happen.
What we liked the most was the fact that we felt like we were truly experiencing Vietnam.
In addition to the tourist things, we also did a home stay with a wonderful family, we helped a salt farmer clear rain water from her pads which kept her from making salt, we helped a peanut farmer harvest peanuts, learned how to make incense, coconut candy and bed mats. We rode bikes through villages and were warmly welcomed by the local people as we rode by their homes.
This is a trip that we will never forget.
Whether you want a busy itinerary or something more slow-paced, Indochina Pioneer will make it happen.
We travel quite a bit and can honestly say that this is one of the best companies that we have ever had the pleasure of dealing with.
We highly recommend visiting Vietnam through Indochina Pioneer.
Thank you, Lam!
"cambodia and vietnam holiday"
We spent an amazing 21 days exploring Cambodia and Vietnam on a tour organised by Lam Duong from Indochina Pioneer. Every part of the trip went smoothly, from the car drivers to the fantastic english speaking guides, who were very attentive to our needs. We could change the itinery if we decided to. We travelled from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap to the amazing bustling city of HCMC. To the Mekong Delta, Hoi An to Hue , then one of our favourites Sapa. An amazing phtographers paradise then Hanoi, another bustling amazing city then on to the tranquility of Halong Bay. All the Hotels were of a very high standard . what really made it such a fantastic holiday was the attention to detail to aspects of the trip. The pre planing with Indochina Pioneer really made us feel at ease if we wanted something added or deleted it was not a problem at all. Lam even telephoned us to talk about parts of the itinery. We are planning a return to vietnam and wouldn’t hesitate to book through Indochina again. Would highly recommend this company. Two very happy travellers.
"Best Company for Customized Tour of Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Thailand!"
My husband and I travelled for nearly two months throughout Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Thailand. Our trip was arranged by Indochina Pioneers, a travel agency operating out of Hanoi, specializing in custom-designed tours. Our consultant, Mr. Quyen “Quinny” Le, was the essence of professionalism in arranging our tour. Over the course of our preparations via email, he worked closely and confidently with us to ensure that our itinerary matched our vision for a trip heavy on history, culture and local cuisine. He interpreted and improved upon my research, and meticulously attended to our concerns and modifications.
During the trip, EVERY planned element of the trip went perfectly. We did the four star hotel option, all of which met our expectations. All the day tours were fascinating, well-paced and aligned with our requests. Every local guide informative, engaging and detail-oriented, and put us at ease on account of their English-language skills. They were also fun and very open minded! Because Indochina Pioneers works with local guides and drivers, we wasted no time looking for places or waiting on lines. Also, when we arrived in a new country and airport, we were met with gracious and punctual drivers who whisked us away to our hotels.
Indochina Pioneers took us to some of the best ‘must see’ locations of Southeast Asia: a central location in bustling Ho Chi Minh City at the Grand Silverland Hotel, an in-depth tour of the Mekong River and delta, an exciting tour of authentic street food in Hanoi, and an enchanting cruise of Halong Bay on Orchid Cruise – and that’s just Vietnam! In more far-flung parts of Laos and Cambodia, we felt the warmth and hospitality of people whose tourist markets are developing very quickly.
We are deeply grateful for Quinny’s research and perfectionism. He created a two-month journey that exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend Indochina Pioneers as your best option for planning a customized, stress-free and enriching trip through Southeast Asia.
"24 days in Vietnam"
We could not speak highly enough of Ms Ruby and Indochina Pioneer. We travelled as a small group on a tailored tour. We did not want to go on a bus with 20-30 people we did nor know and wanted our itinerary changed at a moments notice if we chose. We started planning 12-15 months in advance and asked Ms Ruby many questions and advice on different topics. She did not miss a beat and the end result was an amazing trip with everything going according to our desires. Indochina Pioneer is definitely the tour company you need to have make your holiday a trip of a lifetime. Their knowledge and attention to detail far surpassed our expectations and our tour guides were local people with local knowledge. We did not have to line up, take turns at sitting up the front of the bus, we could always hear and see our guide. We can highly recommend this company and Ms Ruby – thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We will return
