Hanoi – Mai Chau – Hang Kia village

Leaving Hanoi, escorted by your private tour guide, you will depart on your morning drive through the picturesque countryside of rice paddy fields and spectacular, rugged mountain scenery to Mai Chau, home of the Thai minority. Here you will be served lunch in a local family. After that, you will take a one hour drive to Sa Linh Village to begin our trekking expedition. From here, you’ll walk along gravel tracks and small paths used by the locals to Hang Kia village where you will stay overnight as honoured guests of a Hmong family in a traditional longhouse.

Hang Kia village – Van village

Rising to the sound of the lovely Mai Chau valley, you will enjoy breakfast and bid a farewell to the local host family. Today your trek is quite challenging as you will walk through the tropical rain forest, up and down the uneven steps. It will take about 7 hours with picnic lunch en route. In the late afternoon, you will arrive in Van village where is home to the Thai people. Check in your home-stay for refreshment. The rest of the day will be free to stroll around the village until dinner served by the host.

"Lifetime of Memories"

Lam did an amazing job putting together an itinerary based on phone/text conversations. We told him the where and what and he did the rest. The accommodations were beyond expectation, the guides were unbelievably friendly, and the places we were taken were spectacular. Having guides and drivers is worth every penny. So much time and money would have been wasted had we tried to accomplish this ourselves.

We got to experience so much more because of our guides local knowledge. Lastly, how great it was not to worry about how we were getting to the next adventure. Had we not used Indochina Pioneer I truly believe I wouldn’t have as many astonishing memories.

"Amazing 30 Day Journey with Indochina Pioneer"

If you are looking for a private tour of SE Asia, look no further than Indochina Pioneer. I recently returned from a 30-day private tour of Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand all arranged by Indochina Pioneer and could not have been happier with everything they arranged for me. They are top-notch from working directly with you on planning your trip, arranging visas, having individuals at the airports to meet and walk you through everything when entering the countries, having amazing tour guides and drivers as well as organizing everything for you on the ground and being there to help you all along the way if you have any questions or problems. My tour was amazing with not only the normal tourist sights, but many off the beaten track sights and with your own guides, you learn so much more from these individuals who actually live in the places you will visit. I can’t recommend this tour agency enough. If you are looking to travel to any of the locations Indochina Pioneer has tours, you must book through them, you will not be disappointed.

"Excellent from the very beginning"

We had 21 days on a private tour and every detail was perfectly arranged. Perhaps, the Spanish speaking skills of guides can ve improved, but overall they were very helpful and committed with their job. I want to highlight the performance of Juan (Hanoi), Miguel (Hoi An), Chao (Ho Chi Minh City) and La (Luang Prabang, Laos).
Hotels were as we asked and the timing for the visits was very good.
I recommend this travel agency!
