Two memorable weeks in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos.
Our 16 day vacation in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos was amazing. I first found Indochina Pioneer when doing a web search online in the early stages of planning our vacation. I had contacted several agencies for quotes on a personalized trip, but Indochina Pioneer stood head and shoulders abover the rest. From my first contact with Kata, we were extremely pleased. She answered all our questions promptly and quickly put together a tour that was just right for us. I had explained to her that my husband was a Vietnam Vet, so she included sites that would be memorable to him. The tour she put together was just the right pace with a good mix of historic and cultural sights as well as some free time for us to relax. She made the planning process so easy and explained everything we would need upon arrival…..visas, etc.
We had wonderful English speaking guides at every destination on our itinerary. Each guide was very well educated about the history of the area we were visiting as well as prompt and flexible with our daily schedules. We were provided with a local cell phone upon arrival for contact with our guides during our stay. Kata kept in constant contact with our guides during our trip and she even took the time to come meet with us while we were in Hanoi.
In Vietnam, we visited Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hoi An, Hue and Ho Chi Minh City. The cruise of Halong Bay was one of my favorites as was the town of Hoi An..I would do more than one night next time. Our guides Kim, Tony and Lee were awesome and I would ask for each of them again.
Siem Reap Cambodia was lovely…but warm this time of year as it was the dry season. Our guide Kia did an awesome job taking us through the Angkor temples and the sunrise temple visit is not one to be missed.
Luang Prabang, Laos was another of my favorites. The Mahout Experience at Elephant Village was probably my most memorable day of our vacation. It was a wonderful relaxing day!
Kata did an awesome job on our vacation and gave us some lifetime memories. Definitely ask for her when contacting Indochina Pioneer!
