Wonderful trip to Vietnam and Cambodia
We just returned from 17 wonderful days in Vietnam and Cambodia. I contacted several companies and IP had the best responses. I don’t think Lam ever sleeps. Whenever I emailed him in the planning stages he always responded back almost immediately. He customized a most wonderful trip.It first started as a trip to Vietnam and then when I realized we ould add Cambodia he quickly added it to our plan. I really had no idea where to start my plan of this area and that is when I decided to get help and reached out to IP. The trip went perfectly. In fact when I saw the price I said we could upgrade things. so we stayed at beautiful deluxe hotels. Everything went perfectly. We were picked up at the airports, taken to the airports(including aided at the check in counters) and helped in every way. Every tour guide and driver was excellent. Now this is amazing when you see the drivers especially in Saigon and Hanoi. Hats off to the excellent drivers.The cars were very nice and the cold water and cold wipes were very appreciated. The meals they planned for us were all very good and we even had a private luncheon at a monastery just for us. I loved the fact that if we wanted to stay longer at a site it wasn’t a problem. I do like to shop a bit and our wonderful drivers and guides were very patient with me when I found a few good places to shop.I think they did a great job being sure we saw the best parts of each location.I do think that was the beauty of using a Vietnamese company…They certainly know their own country the best.I think this definitely made it more affordable too. We did get to spend the night on a deluxe boat on Halong Bay (Halong Jasmine). This is not to be missed. It was an amazing mystical 24 hours.
As you can tell we had a great time, Lam gave us a phone so he could be reached at any moment (which we did not need).It was so much fun to finally get to meet Lam in person and had a wonderful lunch with him in Hanoi. I can’t wait to plan another trip with Lam and Indochina Pioneer.
