Indochina Pioneer is the very best travel company we have ever used in a lifetime of travel. From the very beginning we knew we were in expert hands. The staff worked with us over and over again to make this trip match what the two of us (one an anthropologist, both photographers) wanted: at least 2 weeks in the mountainous north, some home stays, places away from tourist track,local food. And on a limited budget. We got all of that plus much, much more. Our driver was superb at negotiating the northern roads. Our guide always seemed to know where we wanted to stop for photos or a stretch. Both were great companions. The suggestion for which junk to stay on in Ha Long Bay was spot on perfect.The hotels were charming, with character. The lunches (included) were all delicious and great fun in local restaurants; most evenings we did not need to eat because lunch filled us! The few times there were changes (a death in a family, road washed out, a hotel that had closed) the substitutions were so good that I can't imagine the original could have been better. A visit with the parents of the manager was a memorable highlight. This trip with Indochina Pioneer was so good we have been singing their praises to all our travel friends. I hope they all are smart enough to go with Indochina Pioneer and get to experience Vietnam the way we did.
