Marvellous Mekong cruise
A most enjoyable 3 night cruise on the Mekong from Phnom to Hcmc. All the crew on board were lovely. Always smiling and friendly and happy in their roles. Thank you to Srey Ngoc, Seth, Teen, Chanty, Makara, Smey and everyone, sorry I can’t remember all your names! All excursions were very good and our guide (Thai) was full of knowledge. Food was excellent. A special thank you to Ngoc who kindly booked this cruise for us. She was very efficient and professional, always responsive to my emails. I have no doubts in recommending Indochina Voyages.
Laos Mekong Cruise – TOP 👍🏼
We did a 2-day mekong cruise from huay xai to luang prabang. The trip was just great, we enjoyed it very much. All was very well organized. We got a great support from the team for the immigration at the border Thailand-Laos. Our guide on the boat was also great, gave us a lot of insights, was very kind and helpful. The food on board was great. The captain led us safely to Luang Prabang. And all the transport in generel was well organized. Thanks a lot for this experience!
Amazing three week trip – North to South Vietnam – Thank you Indochina Voyages!
I was looking to arrange a very special trip for a special birthday and my journey started with communicating with Hue Nguyen from this great travel company. She was extremely helpful and prepared a beautiful itinerary for my husband and I. Hue was very knowledgeable and planned an absolutely wonderful three week holiday for us. I highly recommend speaking to her and encourage anyone who may be thinking of booking a trip through this company to not hesitate for a moment.
Our journey started in Hanoi where we were met by our lovely guide Dan. I cannot speak highly enough of Dan. He accompanied us through North Vietnam including Hanoi, Sapa and surrounds. We found him to be extremely knowledgeable and generally a kind and caring young man.
Our second guide was Tam who accompanied us through Central Vietnam. Again, we found him to be very knowledgeable and caring. It was here that I had my special birthday and Indochina Voyages went above and beyond arranging a beautiful surprise for me. I feel so blessed to have found a travel company to be so personal which made our stay so memorable.
Our third guide Jayden did not disappoint. Again, he was a great reflection of what this company stands for. He accompanied us through South Vietnam including the Mekong Delta and we had a wonderful experience.
I also wanted to highlight that each of our guides would suggest places to eat in the evening that were close to our accommodation which really allowed us to enjoy our free time rather than wondering around wasting time trying to find something. Each one of them would also be available at anytime in the evening if we needed anything.
We had three different drivers for the different regions that we visited and they all were extremely professional and flexible.
I highly recommend Indochina Voyages and our consultant Hue Nguyen to anyone that may be thinking of visiting Vietnam. This company really does go above and beyond to make your trip “hassle free”. They took extremely good care of us and I cannot thank them enough. We are planning future travel in Asia and will definitely use their services again without any hesitation.
Amazing agency with the best service, our highlight in Vietnam so far.
Amazing agency with the best service, our highlight in Vietnam so far. We were 6 adults and one toddler (21 months old) travelling from different countries and meeting in Vietnam. As I was organising the trip back in October, I came accross a website (Luxury Cruise Mekong which is a subdivision of Indochina Voyages) and started organising a one day trip from HCM to Can Tho as I was only missing that one day of our trip and needed a nice way to travel from one place to another with the family (from 21 months old to 69yo).
Van, our travel consultant was an absolute legend, prompt to reply to all my emails and really cared about the needs of my family.
On the day of our tour, the guide came on time to pick us up at our hotel and travelled with us the Mekong Delta, stopping along the way to explore local cottage industries including the making of coconut candy and puffed rice (the local equivalent of popcorn). Our lunch was served in an exquisite colonial-style villa set in a lush tropical garden by the river and surrounded by fruit trees and was exquisite.
The quality of information given by the guide was great, really interesting to listen to. We absolutely loved him.
If we go again to Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand or Laos we will make sure to call them to organise our trip or a part of it. We recommend 100%.
Second time using your service for 21 days.
Really not disappointed. We have requested a 21-day hassle-free travel arrangement. We were 4 guys and we traveled from the north of Vietnam to the south of the country. Thanks to Indochina voyage service, we had the opportunity to visit Hanoi, Mucanchai, Sapa, Ha long bay, Ninh Binh, Hue, Da Nang, Hoi An, Ho Chi Ming city, Me Kong and Can Tho. In each city, we had the service of a driver who took us around and to the designated destinations with also a tourist guide
Once in a Lifetime Sampan Adventure
From the moment we were picked up by a driver at our hotel in Ho Chi Minh City until we disembarked in Chau Doc we were treated like royalty on our three day Mekong Delta Victoria cruise in a sampan. The boat had two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a living room area where we could enjoy the view during the day. It could accommodate four people. It also had Wi-Fi and air conditioning.
Our guide Thanh was knowledgeable and friendly. He shared a great deal of information about Vietnamese culture and life on the Mekong Delta. He spoke good English, and went out of his way to be helpful. The rest of the crew was also excellent and our chef cooked delicious meals with lovely presentation.
We really enjoyed all the excursions. A bike ride to visit a pagoda, five course lunch at a renovated, colonial mansion, a tour of a candy factory, where we learned how rice paper is made, seeing the hard workers at a pottery workshop, a tour of a market and flower village at Sad Dec, a ride in a traditional rowboat along a small waterway canal, a visit to Tiger Island enriched our understanding of the Mekong Delta area and the people who live there. We were impressed by the friendliness of the people we met along the way.
This is a once in a lifetime sort of experience and if you want to be pampered we highly recommend this tour.
3-day Sampan Victoria Cruise on the Mekong River
The 3-day, 2 night cruise on a Sampan up the Mekong River with Victoria Cruises was fabulous! Highly recommended.
The crew was terrific, attention to detail and meals were great! The side-yours were very interesting and varied. Wifi on the boat was convenient, beds were comfortable. Our guide, Thanh, spoke very good English and was delightful as well as knowledgeable.
Family Trip of a Lifetime!!!
Given that this was the first time I have ever used a travel agency, I was initially quite wary. However, after the numerous communications with my Indochina Voyages travel consultant, Ms. Hue Nguyen, I felt relieved because she was extremely helpful, responsive, patient, and knowledgeable and able to answer all my questions and concerns. She allowed me the freedom and helped plan the perfect vacation for my family based on the places we wanted to see and things we wanted to do. Every detail and consideration were attended to and my children, husband, sister-in-law, and I could not stop raving at how amazing this trip was!
From the moment we were picked up from the airport in Hanoi (from the US), we felt so well taken care of. Our first tour guide, Dan, greeted us cheerfully (even though our flight was delayed for > 2 hours and it was almost midnight when we arrived). He and the driver whisked us away in a well air-conditioned van and transferred us to the hotel, helped with our luggages, and helped us check in smoothly. The first impression, in my opinion, is one of the most important and from that initial interaction, I already felt like we would be having a great trip! Dan was our tour guide for 6 days in northern Vietnam (Hanoi, Sapa, Ninh Binh, Halong Bay) and he was such a joy to be with — he was very knowledgeable about the area and his love for northern Vietnam clearly shined through. He was also quite a funny guy and our children, ages 12 and 10, enjoyed talking and interacting with him. Some of the activities we enjoyed the most were the walking food tour in Hanoi, the trek through the rice fields in Muong Hoa valley in Sapa where our kids got to swim in the river with local H’mong kids, boat ride through the Trang An Landscape Complex in Ninh Binh, and the one night cruise in the Halong Bay on a beautiful and luxurious cruise boat, more like a yacht (Scarlet Pearl Cruise).
After 6 days in northern Vietnam, we flew from Hanoi to Danang and spent 5 days in central Vietnam (Hoi An and Danang). Our tour guide, Truong, was also such a delight and very knowledgeable about this area of the country. On our first night, we explored Hoi An, had one of the most delicious meals ever at the Morning Glory Original restaurant, and experienced a lantern boat ride on Hoi An Old Town’s canal. Another fun activity we did in Hoi An was the cooking class at the Red Bridge Cooking School — we all had a great time, especially our kids, and learned a lot about Vietnamese cuisines. We have never done a cooking class before with our prior travels and this was surprisingly one of the highlights of our trip! The remainder of our stay was at a beautiful 4 bedroom ocean villa at the Danang Marriott Resort and Spa, where we lounged on the beach and by the pool. We also spent a day in Ba Na Hills and saw the famous Golden Bridge (which was quite Insta-worthy). The kids enjoyed the Fantasy Park as well. On one of our free days in Danang, my 12 year old son wanted to fish with local folks and pretty much at the last minute, Hue was able to help arrange that. My son and husband spent a day with local fishermen and had a wonderful time. Furthermore, during our time in Danang, my daughter had a birthday and turned 11 years old and Truong, our tour guide, gave my daughter a beautiful bouquet of flowers and a gift from Indochina Voyages. My daughter was elated and felt so special.
We spent the remainder of our second week in Ho Chi Minh and explored the city as well as the Mekong Delta. Our tour guide there, Minh, was very helpful and provided great guidance. We stayed at one of the most beautiful hotels ever, The Reverie Saigon, and were treated like royalty. One of the highlights was watching the A O Show, an acrobatic cultural spectacle, at the Saigon Opera House. And one thing that I cannot fail to mention is that we had friends from Singapore who were flying to Ho Chi Minh to meet up with us on short notice. I asked Hue to see if the driver could pick them up at the airport and if our two friends could join us on all the tours and excursions, and she gladly agreed to arrange all of that. I was so appreciative of how she accommodated our friends even though it was a last minute request!
After two splendid weeks in Vietnam, we flew from Ho Chi Minh to Siem Reap, Cambodia. We were graciously greeted at the airport by our tour guide, Vuthy, and the driver and were transferred in a luxurious minivan to our hotel. We spent three days in Siem Reap. On our second day, we woke up at 5:00 am to go see the Angkor Wat at sunrise — it was one of the most majestic views I have ever seen! Vuthy was such an amazing tour guide who clearly loved his country. He had so much knowledge about its tumultuous history and had many stories to share with us. Once again, Hue came through and allowed us to make last minute changes to our itinerary. We had one free day in Siem Reap but decided to visit family in Battambang, which is approximately a 3-hour drive. Hue was able to arrange for the driver to take us there so that we could spend the day in Battambang with our family, which we greatly enjoyed and appreciated.
Our last few days of our 3-week vacation were spent in the capital of Cambodia, Phnom Penh, where we explored some must-see attractions such as the Royal Palace, Tuol Sleng Museum (S-21 prison), and Choeng Ek killing field with our wonderful tour guide, Vibol (aka Bol), another highly knowledgeable guide who shared so much information with us. It was quite disturbing and sad to see the suffering of the Cambodian people at the hands of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge but I felt that it was an important part of this country’s history that my kids should know about.
Last, but not least, Indochina Voyages came through again and went above and beyond to ensure our trip was amazing by gifting us a farewell dinner on a river cruise in Phnom Penh. This was the perfect ending to our unforgettable family vacation!
Vietnam and Cambodia have such rich, yet tragic, histories, some of the most breathtaking sceneries we have ever seen, genuinely friendly and beautiful people who have overcome so many trials and tribulations, and the most delicious foods (we ate nonstop). We are a family who loves to travel and go on a major international trip at least once per year (except during the COVID pandemic). This has undoubtedly been one of our favorite vacations. Thank you to Indochina Voyages for making this a family trip of a lifetime!
Wonderful experiences and memories
Our private tour was well organised and we had a great time – the guides and drivers were all very polite and professional and were able to assist with most issues we had. While we didn’t see all of Vietnam, we did enjoy the many parts we did visit with Trang An, Halong Bay, My Son, Hoi An and the Mekong Delta being the standouts. We were surprised that there were already so many tourists around and appreciated how covid would have impacted Vietnam’s tourism. If we choose to visit Vietnam again and visit the places we missed, we would definitely use Indochina Voyages however we may choose to slow the pace down a bit in future -:)
Amazing, must do to see real Meekong
Great tour experiencing things we would never have been able to without Will.
We got to see how a lot of different food is made and got an up close of how the local people live. Including jumping on a market boat and sampling fresh pineapple.
Will, our tour guy, was funny and nice and very informative.
Would recommend as a way of seeing the wonderful Meekong River.
We worked with Minh Vu for our trip to Vietnam and Cambodia. The trip involved time in north, central, and south Vietnam, as well as Siem Reap in Cambodia. To begin, Minh was excellent across the board – and was very responsive and flexible when we had a later-than-expected landing in Hanoi, and decided to fit in a cooking class in Hoi An (at Jessica’s Kitchen – it was fantastic). Our tour guides were all knowledgeable, punctual, and friendly and each had good English skills. We would especially recommend Steven in central Vietnam (where we saw Hue and Hoi An) and Tom and Jerry in the south (where we saw Ho Chi Min and Mekong River Delta). Their hotel choices were excellent as well and we also recommend the cruise of Ha Long Bay). No trip is perfect, but any time a wrinkle arose, the team at Indochina Voyages were able to turn things around and offer a terrific window into Southeast Asia.
Great experience with Indochina Voyage
We are a family of 4, 2 adults and 2 kids (12 and 17 yo) and just came back from an amazing holiday in Vietnam, organized with Indochina Voyage. Van Do was so nice, prompt and honest and proposed us the best itinerary and experiences for our time. She even came to meet us and drink a coffee together when in Hanoi.We have visited Hanoi, spent the New Years Eve on a cruise in Halong Bay, flyed to Ho Chi Minh and visit it, a day in Mekong Delta and then flew to Phu Quoc Island and rest for the last 4 days. The hotels Van Do offered were really nice, really 4* or 5*, very well located, our tour guides, Linda in Hanoi and Tom in Saigon were extremely nice, educated, well informed and passionate about their jobs, daily program was varied and balanced and the restaurants very good and authentic.
We hope to come back again to visit this beautiful country and to meet our new friends.
We higly recommend the services of Indochina Voyage.
