9 days ! Sapa-HalongBay-Hanoi

Visited 25 December 2015 – 02 January 2016 (9 days)

We (2x family of 9: 5 adults & 4 parents) engaged Indochina Pioneer Tour for our 9 days stay at vietnam. It is our 1st time to Vietnam and we weren’t really sure of what will be coming till we land in the good hands of our tour guide, Mr Lam. =)

Transportation: 5/5
The 24 seater air-conditioned bus was crazily nice & clean: very comfortable and seats could be recline. The bus smells fresh always! +points
Recommended by Mr Lam, we took Fanxipan night train to Sapa and it was a memorable experience. Highly recommended.

Tour Guide: 5/5
Mr Lam is easy-going, flexible and knowledgeable. It is our honor to have him as our guide throughout the 9 days. He provides suggestion of places to visit and even bring us on a food on foot trip while in hanoi. Here’s some of the street food we’ve tried: Bánh Cuốn (Steamed Rice Cake), Baguette (Bánh mỳ), (Gỏi Bò) Papaya salad with pork liver, Chè (Sweet Desserts and Puddings) and more.. Note: please start your food tour with an empty stomach as we were so so full thereafter @.@

Hotel / Cruise Arrangement: 5/5
We were delighted to get some of the rooms upgraded during the trip, we were wondering if it’s our tour guide who has helped with the arrangement. Nevertheless, we were really appreciative for the surprises. All stays throughout the trip were well picked and recommended by Mr Lam, no signs of dirty bedsheets/insects. Bathrooms were clean and spacious too.

In summary, the places we had visited were absolutely breathtaking with stunning views, what more could we ask for with all the good food and great company!

Highly recommended to groups and families as Indochina Pioneer is flexible and have the ability to handle group requests! When I eventually do return to Hanoi, I will absolutely use Indochina Pioneer again. Money well spent!
