Trip of a lifetime!
We spent almost a year working with Kata of Indochina Pioneer to plan our month-long trip for four to Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam. I am someone who likes planning trips and I could not have asked for a better partner in Kata. Kata and IP are both very professional and every detail was well planned out, and most importantly, well carried out for the entire month-long trip. Kata put together the entire trip, I made some minor changes, including upgrading some of the hotels, all without any problems. Sometimes email communication was not as prompt as we would have liked, so we called a few times to iron out some details. On the whole, communication went well. All of our guides were excellent (with the exception of 1) and made our experience all the more rich and personal. We came away having learned so much about each country and culture that only the personal contact with a caring and knowledgable local can offer. We liked the flexibility throughout the trip, to change or add something. Kata took the time to meet with us for coffee in Hanoi, a lovely gesture. I highly recommend IP.
