I started planning with Minh Vu at Indochina Voyages months before our trip. I read many reviews which were all excellent. He was so informative and attentive and put together an amazing holiday for us. We decided on 12 day private tour which included Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hue, Hoi An, Ho Chi Minh and Mekong Delta. Trip was seamless, internal Flights easy and most of all the Guides and Drivers we spent time with were fantastic. Joe showed us Hanoi and took us to Halong Bay for our cruise and then took us to the airport for our flight to Hue, he introduced us to street food (delicious) and we learned so much through his passionate personality. In Hue we met with Tai, his English was great, very experienced and he showed us many interesting places, we drove over the mountains to Hoi An and spent time exploring. Our 3 day stay in a beach bungalow at Palm Garden Resort was so enjoyable. When we arrived in Ho Chi Minh we met Cody, a young, charming and funny young man who we loved spending time with and he gave us so much information, we laughed a lot and shared many stories, we have contacted him and the others since returning home and shared photos. Minh Vu organised great accommodation and a wonderful itinerary. We highly recommend Indochina Voyages to experience a memorable holiday.
Seamlessly well organized from start to finish.
We used Indochina voyages when searching for a trip on the Mekong Delta that would get us to Phu Quoc without having to fly. Although it was just a small part of our trip Minh Vu was happy to help and whenever I had a query and despite the 7 hour time difference in the UK his responses were always prompt and informative. It can be a bit nerve wracking when faced with such a huge difference in culture and a language barrier but all parts of the trip on the Delta with pick ups, transfers,ferry tickets booked and handed to us couldn’t have gone more smoothly with all costs handled by Indochina voyages so just the one invoice to pay. I would happily recommend them and in fact think it’s better to give business to a company that is from Vietnam and important to support the hard-working people of Vietnam as they develop their tourist industry..well done Indochina Voyages and thank you!
Worry Free Tour of Vietnam and Cambodia, This is an excellent company!
I can highly recommend Indochina Voyages! We just came back from a 20-day custom designed Vietnam and Cambodia trip that was well organized and stress free.
Originally, I started looking at small group tours. I found them very expensive and many used an overnight train from Hanoi to Hue (not for me). In researching I kept finding people that used Indochina Voyages for private tours and spoke highly of them. I decided to email them with my dates and places that I wanted to see. The reply was prompt and they worked with me to plan a trip that included a Halon Bay cruise and a 3-night Mekong river cruise.
After deciding on an itinerary and hotel style, we were given a price in US dollars. It included a private guide and driver who met us at every airport, hotels that included breakfast, tours, cruises, inter country flights etc. This was just perfect for a first-time visit. The entire trip went as planned and Daniel from Indochina Voyages contacted us numerous times during our tour to make sure we were happy. He even made a point of meeting us in Hanoi for coffee.
Here is how it worked for us:
We contacted Indochina Voyages by email and together planned the trip.
When we arrived in Vietnam a guide met us at the airport (they had a sign with our names). The guide and driver took us to our hotel and helped us check in. That same guide and driver stayed with us showing us the sights until our flight to the next destination. At the next airport a new guide and driver would be with us to explore that area. Can you imagine how nice it was for just the two of us to see everything privately with just a guide? Affordably luxury! We never felt like we were being herded around as you do on a group tour. All the vehicles had aircon, were roomy, comfortable, and water was provided. Our drivers were excellent, and we appreciated their calm maneuvering on such chaotic (to us) roads.
Our itinerary detailed what we would see, what meals were included (beverages like beer, juice and soft drinks are always extra). There were never any hidden charges. Great care was taken to ensure the restaurants we went to were good for tourists and had clean toilets.
This was a wonderful trip and Indochina Voyages made it extra special for us. Thank you to Huyen and Daniel at Indochina Voyages and to all our guides who each in their own way, created very special memories.
The six of us ranging in age from 69 to 9 travelled from Hanoi to Siem Reap over 18 days. We has a night on Halong Bay, travelled by train to Sapa, flew to Hue & explored Hue, Da Nang & Hoi An with a day trip to the Ba Na Hills. We then flew to Ho Chi Minh city & travelled by bus to the Mekong Delta where we cruised over night. From Chau Doc we travelled by speed boat across the border to Phnom Penh & then onto Siem Reap to see the temples. Everything that Huyen from Indo China Voyages organised, happened. The guides and drivers were excellent. All our hotels were centrally located and very good 3-4 star. Based on this trip we thoroughly recommend Huyen at Indo China Voyages, she was extremely helpful throughout the lengthy booking process as we added other options to the trip. We had a wonderful family holiday with our daughter and her 3 children. Next time to South East Asia we’ll be calling Huyen.
Amazing 4 week trip to Vietnam and Cambodia
This private trip for my husband and I was the trip of a lifetime. Nam Ngo at Indochina Voyages worked with us for over a year to give us our perfect experience. I can’t thank him enough for not just hanging in there with us, but providing recommendations that really enhanced every day. He responded promptly to every email and talked us through what we wanted. We met in Hanoi and he helped us with a sim card for our phone and kept in touch with us the whole way. The Hotels, tours, meals, transfers and all of tour guides and drivers were top notch. We changed our schedule a few times ( okay, maybe more than a few) and he handled it all seamlessly. It was perfect. We relaxed and enjoyed the whole thing and were taken care of beautifully. Vietnam was so amazing, it’s hard to pick a favorite place. Hanoi was exiting and bustling, Halong Bay was ridiculously photogenic, Sapa, and Ninh Binh looked like post cards. The beach at Hoian was a great place for free time. We loved the Mekong Delta river cruise. Angkor Wat was so spectacular. The perfect ending was at a lovely resort at Phu Quac. Thank You, Thank You Nam and Indochina Voyages. The memories and photos of this trip will be with us forever.
Phenomenal Tailored Journey to Vietnam create by Indochina Voyages.
Thanks to Van Do of Indochina Voyages, our trip was nothing short of amazing, it far exceeded our expectations. It was one of, if not the absolute memorable trip to a stunningly beautiful county. In planning our tailored trip, I told Van what I was looking for and what my concerns were and she seemed to understand perfectly. She listened and accommodated our wishes. She was professional, fun to work with, very responsive and I was confident that I was in good hands. This was the first time we used a local travel agency and was a bit skeptical. After experiencing each step of the itinerary, never having to worry about setting up transportation, finding a guide, and having each activity highlighted, the value was worth the expense.
PERFECT Vacation to Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand
My husband and I just returned from a private, 24 day trip to Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand, which was organized by Minh Vu at Indochina Voyages. Bottom line – Minh provided exceptional service!
From the very beginning of planning to the last minute questions, Minh responded efficiently, accurately, and always with a great positive attitude. We gave him our “wishlist” and told him this was our “bucket trip” to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. He expertly guided the planning process with his knowledge of the areas and with a passion for his country. Every detail was executed perfectly. Upon arrival in each country, in each location, our local guides were always waiting for us, whether at the airport or to meet us at the beginning of the day at our hotel. The guides were well-versed in their knowledge of the local areas and their countries, their command of the English language was superb, and they were so fun to talk with to learn about their countries, their families and their lives. (Isn’t that the key to traveling – meeting new people, exploring new places?!).
A Great Vietnam Adventure with Indochina Voyages
This was our first trip to Vietnam. We wanted to spend 18 days starting in Hanoi and work our way down south to Phu Quoc Island. We wanted to be adventurous, active and experience as many places as we could in 18 days. We had initially considered planing and booking the trip our self but the task was daunting. A good friend referred us to Indochina Voyages (IV) because he had had a great experience with them previously. We are so glad we hooked up with IV and worked with Minh Vu. This company is top notch. Minh worked with us via emails to create a fantastic itinerary that suited what we wanted to do. We initially had so many questions and concerned but Minh worked with us to get them all addressed, in a timely fashion, with professionalism and patience. In all, we experienced Hanoi, May Chau, Pu Luong, Ninh Binh, Trang An, Halong Bay, Hue, Danang, Hoi An, Ho Chi Minh City, Can Tho with Mekong Delta, and Phu Quoc. We stayed in 8 different hotels all of which were excellent and included great breakfast. The included lunches and dinners at great local restaurants were fantastic as well – this was not street food but rather fine dining. There was certainly enough opportunities for street food tasting as well. We had 4 flights in Vietnam between major destinations with Vietnam Airline. We were picked up from the airports promptly and had private AC vans taking us to all places. All tours were guided with English speaking tour guides who were really nice, knew their stuff, and took care of us. Most importantly, this is a local company and local tour guides who really know Vietnam. They took us to awesome places that we would not explore on our own.
A word on payment. Since we were booking directly with IV, we submitted payments directly to them. Initially, we were apprehensive about sending a lot of money for the deposit directly to a company over seas. We had never done this before. We had no problems at all with IV. Indochina Voyages is a legit company and can be trusted.
Another reason to use a great tour company and agent is that when something goes wrong, they are there to help you. On one of our flights in Vietnam, it was re-routed due to bad weather. We were stuck in a city without lodging in the middle of the night. I texted Minh and he responded immediately and helped us.
In the end, we are so glad that we hooked up with IV and with Minh. We had a great adventure and wonderful memories. This was the best way to experience Vietnam for us. We highly recommend Indochina Voyages, and specifically Minh Vu.
Fantastic Tour Company
We booked our trip to Vietnam with this tour company. Best decision ever! We started the journey in the south of Vietnam, then to central Vietnam and ending up in the northern part of the country. The tour experience was smooth transitioning to all the different cities and the tour guides organised for us in the different cities were warm, caring & friendly, and well spoken in English.I would highly recommend this tour company for its efficient, interesting and well-planned exploration of the country. My whole family truly treasure the experience we had of this trip – it was fun, educational and definitely memorable!
Visit to Vietnam and Cambodia organised
Indochina Voyages are an excellent company which organized a private tour for our family to visit Vietnam and Cambodia. Dan and his team were excellent. Always checking at every stop that we were comfortable with all the arrangements. We had an excelled 17-day trip. Everything was organized so well with all the small details taken care of. The hotels were first grade and the placed chosen for the itinerary made sure we did not miss any important place. Halong Bay and Ho An is a must-see place.
Our first trip to Viet Nam, won’t be our last!
When I began researching for our last minute, 2-week trip to Viet Nam, I had a month in which to plan and book flights. TBH I knew zero about the geography or popular travel spots, so asked my friend Google for help.
Google, in turn, directed me to the endless source of all travel wisdom and knowledge: TripAdvisor Forums. Huge thanks to everyone who generously offers their wisdom there. It was there that Ross recommended planning a trip to Viet Nam, with the assistance of one of many Vietnamese tour operators, and then he mentioned a few.
I went back to Google with my new info, sought out a few more VN tour operators, then contacted three directly.
In the end, it was a battle between two excellent tour companies. Both consultants were pleasant, polite, patient and very capable, but for our particular requirements, Dan (Tram) from Indochina Voyages seemed to more fully listen and understood what we wanted, so we thought it only made sense to go with him.
Great day trip
Me and my friends took a daytrip to Mekong Delta from Ho Chi Minh. The trip included transportation from Ho Chi Minh, boattrips on Mekong, lunch, visit to local crafts and food and a bikeride to one of the villages along the delta. Lot to see and experience. Our guide, mr Cuong, was very outgoing, intersting, funny, but most of all, had a lot of knowledge that he shared. He spoke about what we saw and could expect, but also was very attentive to our questions and what we seemed fascinated by. The homepage was easy to navigate, and customer service, by Daniel, was friendly and professional.
