Well there is nothing better than hearing it from the people who have travelled with us !!!

What a good idea drifter, and if enough people add to the thread it could perhaps be listed in Top Questions section while travelling in Vietnam. For travellers who're up for a guided adventure by motorbike (riding pillion), We went on an absolutely fantastic 4-day tour earlier this year that included 2 days in a little piece of rural heaven on earth: Pu Luong Nature Reserve in Thanh Hoa.

Pu Luong lies south-west of Hanoi in Thanh Hoa Province. It's an area of outstanding natural beauty that includes soaring jungle-clad mountains, rice terraces, winding valleys, rivers, waterfalls and much more. The inhabitants are mainly White Thai ethnic minority people who live in picturesque thatched, timber-built stilt houses, some of which are grouped together in small villages but most are scattered about on hillsides or in valleys. The most beautiful areas are inaccessible by car and there are no paved roads in the heart of the area, which so far is guaranteeing the absence of mainstream tourists and the inappropriate development that follows in their wake.

And then, the trip by car to Hagiang region for 5 days, the accommodation is home stays with Tay and Dzao people. A truly treasure of Vietnam and unknown for commun tourists, the landscapes and hilltribe culture are breaktaking and amazing. We would love to be back here again. We highly recommend Ethnic Voyage for those amazing private tours!

We just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for making our holiday such a success from beginning to end. It was everything we had hoped it would be - and more. The travel arrangements were spot on, the hotels wonderful and the quality consistent (I especially loved Amansara in Siemreap) though they were all excellent. The guides both in Vietnam  and Cambodia did a wonderful job and couldn't have been more helpful and informative. All in all we had a marvellous time, thank you very much. We are deeply grateful to you for arranging it all so efficiently. If we know of anyone planning to visit that part of the world we will certainly encourage them to contact you.

" Just a few words to thank you for organising our holiday in North Vietnam. We had a fantastic time; saw some wonderful scenery, met lots of nice people and ate many different types of food. This was largely due to our guide, with his philosophy of ‘never try, never know’. The guide was brilliant, took really good care of us, made sure we always had water and fresh fruit and ensured there were always lots of interesting things for us to see and do. He always wanted to do what was best for us and he certainly achieved that. We cannot praise him enough...Once again many thanks for a splendid holiday. It was a marvellous trip and will have no problems recommending Ethnic Voyage to our friends"

We have recently returned from our tour of Vietnam and Cambodia and just wanted to let you know what was a amazing experience it was. The service you provide prior to the trip was perfect, from the detailed pre-tour information pack, flight bookings and the obtaining of Cambodian visa's, we could not have asked for more. The trip itself was faultless, from the moment we arrived in Hanoi to our departure from Phnom Penh 20 days later. The tour guides at each location were so kind, friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. The vehicles used for touring were good, clean, spacious (5 persons in a 16 seater vehicle), and driven very safely. The hotels surpassed our expectations in all respects. The meals provided as part of the tour were excellent, with regards quality and quantity. The venues also differed considerably, that we always looked forward to the next meal.
It was truly a 5 star tour at a 3 star price, truly remarkable. We will definately being touring with you again and would highly recommended Ethnic Voyage to our friends and family

Huge changes are taking place in Vietnam and we were so glad to have gone before it becomes too Westernised. The people we met were so friendly, cheerful, and hard-working, that it was a delight to see them. We really enjoyed our trip in this beautiful country. Thanks Ethnic Voyage for organising a such holidays

Just a quick note ( awful to come back to work!) to say thank you very much indeed for organizing our wonderful vacation in Cambodia (Heritage suites in Siem Reap) and Vietnam (Villa Song in Ho Chi Minh). We arrived back safely last night from Nam Hai Resort in Da Nang. Every aspect went 100% according to plan. As a family it was a very educational and exciting experience and we feel that the amount of time and profile of visits was just about right in all locations.

Thanks again, it was fantastic.

Now we are back in Canada and its cold and snowy. Thank you very much for your perfect organisation of our Vietnam and Laos. The food was a delight to eat, the hotels were all of the highest quality and the guides and drivers were friendly, helpful, informative and humorous. Vietnam, from Hanoi to Ha Long Bay to Hue to Danang & Hoi An to Saigon what a visit. The hustle and bustle combined with the sights, out in the streets then a boat trip, back to the city, moving on wondering which way to look next (you don't see too many pigs on their backs strapped to a trishaw down our way). Past rice fields with oxen ploughing and up over the mountains for a different perspective. Again our guides and drivers were always with us and Mr Tan especially in HCMC was a joy to talk to, always asking questions to improve himself for future visitors but at the same time making sure that we knew everything about his city. Leaving Vietnam by short flight to Laos, for us this country was an eye opener. Starting at Luang Prabang with the room overlooking the Mekong river and our lovely guide Vanda taking us around all the sights. Hope she remembers what we taught her as much as we remember the sights that we were shown. Vientiane is a lovely city and the days spent there were really interesting. Our trip was 3 weeks in total with 8 separate flights, 6 hotels, 4 guides with drivers, each of them will be remembered for many different reasons and all good. There were 1 hiccups on the whole trip. It was resolved efficiently and rapidly with all parties ensuring that we were looked after and that our trip could continue as per the itinerary. We did not want to come home and would do it all again. We hope to return to these countries in the future to explore further areas and enjoy. Many thanks again!

“You did a wonderful job, I will be recommending your company to everyone I know, the tour guides …….. were just fantastic and professional and I wanted to bring them home with me, just loved them. We all had a fantastic time and I would like to thank you for making it such a memorable trip of a lifetime!”

I really appreciated the care taken by Ethnic Voyage in organizing this fabulous itinerary for us. The trip to Sapa was a memorable one. We went on many great walks off beaten paths. Tour guide's knowledge, command of the English language and manner were great. Our driver was also very good. We had full confidence that we were in a safe pair of hands.

I want to send the attached to you with our heartfelt thanks for all you both did to make our trip to Vietnam and Cambodia the incredible adventure that it was. We have dealt with Ethnic Voyage since 2005 for Laos and in three trips have not had a moment that has not been wonderful. Ivy you have built a company that is second to none in travel and that now appears to be just about anywhere in the world. Your coordination and expertise is unrivaled. The letter I have attached is a quick overview of our thoughts on our Vietnam and Cambodia trip. Feel free to use any or all of it on your website. I have also included a few photos. You continue to amaze and please me. If we can swing anyone your way, we certainly will. Dealing with Ethnic Voyage makes me feel like I'm dealing with friends and that's special. we'd love to recommend you to our friends.

The trip was great and totally wonderful. Everything you planned was perfect. The hotels were good and the guides had good knowledge. So, we will be back to discoverymekong.com the next time we are traveling. You have been so helpful. I started dreaming about a future trip and think Laos is next! I will be shortly in touch. Thanks again.

We are back in Australia after having a great time in Vietnam. Thank you and the boys for giving us a wonderful time- we loved the lfexibility of your tour but more importantly the company of your touring team. We will have fond memories of our time with "Vietnam North Motorbike Tours" and his team for many years to come. We will certainly be recommending you to any of our friends who are considering a cycling tour through Vietnam.

We have passed through several countries and must say that this trip was the most enjoyable of them all. Tung is very knowlegable, knows his country, its people and really looks after his clients. Good motorbikes, wonderful people, great food, beautiful scenery... what's not to love?


Thanks Guys, and good luck for your future.

David Gan's family 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Excellent trip! Beautiful countryside, good accomodations, great food and good motorbikes to ride. Tung took us to very interesting places. We would not have seen with other tour groups and they saw to our every need from start to finish. The people we met along the way were fantastic. Highly recommended!

Hi mate,

We woulk like to say thank you very much to you, to your helper and to the driver for making such a nice, unforgetable discovering motorbike trip while we were in Vietnam. We are home now and it is so cold here in Norway. We look at the pictures of the motorbike trip many times and that reminds us the beautiful country and nice people that we had met during the motorbike trip

Helene Egan and Family

Thank you very much for you guys did. The motorbike trip was incredible. Amazing scenery, fantastic and knowledgable guides, exlaining all aspects about the trip, day's activities, safety....The vehicle was comfortable, clean and the driver was so friendly.

Thank you discovery mekong motorbike tours team

We had a great trip. The old addage " you get what you pay for" definitely proved itself true on this "off the beaten track" tour of VietNam but there were many interesting and memorable points. It is not for customers looking for any ounce of luxury or the Vietnam that one sees in the travelogues. The hotels are basic (but nice), the food was a bit challenging at times but the people were lovely. The Ethnichvoyage Travel  deliveried exactly what they promised-which what you hope for!

Johnny's group 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Hoa Mrs,

There isn't much to say other than it was asolutely great. Everything happened as scheduled ( on time even). The motorbikes was well maintained. The guides were wonderful and knowledgable. We really like having The Ethnichvoyage  Tour every day. You were all helpful in many ways and everyone was fun to be with. It was great to have you arrange everything for us. We really appreciated your flexibility. Overall, we feel that we received a very good value for what we paid.

We would definitely recommend your company to anyone going to Viet Nam to do the motorbicycle trips.

Christina & Brian 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Our trip to Vietnam was an incredible experience. Words cannot fully explain how much we enjoyed the trip. Ms Quyen , our tour guide was marvellous. She was not only a great organiser and guide, but a great person who went well outside her responsibilities to ensure that our trip was a memorable one. Next year we are looking to visit Cambodia and I will contact you when we begin planning!

I would just like to write and thank your company for an excellent trip around Indochina - it was supremely wonderful. I would in particular like to commend the tour leaders, Phuong and The (and the local guide who acted just as a tour leader in Laos, Viet nam, Siem Reap, Virakhan Xayxana), as they did much to make the whole experience so enjoyable. I was impressed with their effortless organisation, willingness to cater to the group's individual needs (not an easy job), whilst still being able to socialise in a most pleasant way. All in all they proved to be consummate professionals and I feel privileged to have been given the opportunity to tour with them.

Brian & Mino Haworth, UK 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I would like to compliment Ethnicvoyage Travel on their superior customer service. It seems to me that many travel companies think their work ends at drawing up itineraries and arranging hotels. However, I found that your company really values the customer experience and this was shown by the phone calls we received in each city, checking whether we had found the experience to our expectation. I think this alone is ingenious, as any problems can be addressed immediately and not potentially left to mar the whole holiday. In all, a wonderful experience in a superb country.

Angela Marinucci, Australia 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A huge thank you for the help with organising our recent trip to Vietnam. We had a wonderful time, thoroughly enjoyed every minute and have been singing the praises of the country and Ethnicvoyage Travel since we returned. It was the best holiday we have had in years. Everything went so smoothly, Phong was a joy, quietly organised and Tuan and The both great sources of knowledge and good fun. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them. They were all great ambassadors for your company.

Carolyn and Tony Herrick, USA 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Our tour was fantastic! Our tour leader, John , was excellent and he took care of every little detail to ensure we had a good time. I was impressed with he local knowledge, love and respect for the country. He was fantastic at communicating with all the people in the group and made sure we were happy and our needs were catered for. He could not have done more! The local guide, Banny, was also fantastic and helpful. I feel both the tour leader and local guide complimented each other very well and made it a memorable trip for me. The itinerary was great and I do not have any suggestions for improvement. As a group we were lucky because we got on well with each other. All the transfers following the tour were well organised. I was impressed with EthnicvoyageTravel and I will certainly travel with you again and recommend you to my friends. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for a great holiday.

I knew nothing about Vietnam as a holiday destination but I had the holiday of a lifetime. Every day living history was witnessed, transport between events and venues was excellent, the food was wonderful and it was top value for money!

"I don't know where to start! I work in the travel industry and travel extensively, but this holiday greatly exceeded my expectations. Every little thing was thought of and covered - your organization is fantastic! We had one of our best holidays ever. You really impressed me! Our tour leader Huong is outstanding, an amazing man who is always professional but also great fun. "

Dear  Ms Hoa,

 

Thank you, too!  We had a lovely time and were extremely impressed with your service.  I would be happy to be a reference for you.  The Hotels were lovely… I would say that the Metropole was the best, then Le Residence (both) next best, then the Caravelle then the Victoria ….

We really loved the Metropole the most… it’s lovely and the location is great as well as the facilities and service.  And we really liked the restaurant "Wild Lotus" you sent us to for our welcome dinner. Some of the highlights of the trip were HalongBay … it was so beautiful…  and we really enjoyed the flowers and champagne and cake… it was very memorable.

Going to the markets was also great fun…  the guides were great… very knowledgeable, accommodating and their flexibility was appreciated. 

We were thinking we would see some less developed parts of the Mekong Delta.  And the boat trip on Tonle Sap Lake seemed like a trap just to get us onto a tourist barge. One thing that was a problem was leaving for Cambodia … Vietnam airlines was reluctant to let us on the plane because we did not have the return tickets back to Vietnam .  In the end it all worked out great but it was stressful at the time, we thought we were going to have a major problem.  Also, some information that would be helpful in the dossier you send out to people visiting Cambodia is that they require a passport that is valid for more than six months from the entry date into Cambodia …  

We were very pleased on the whole.  We thought the service was impeccable and we will recommend you and your company.  

Thank you kindly,

P.E from New York City, The US

"Value for money - we were surprised! The hotels were all first-rate, well-located, breakfasts included....buffet style with Western and Asian choices. We did not get nickel and dimed for entrances and with local payments. Everything was very well-organized. Buses were always on time and our check-ins at the hotels and airports were all taken care of." Thank you .

Dear Mr Hoa,


Yesterday we arrived home in the UK, following our holiday in Vietnam that your company had arranged for us. This email is to thank you and your colleagues for the excellent organisation of the tour. From the moment we were met in Hanoi airport to the final farewell in Saigon, the organisation; the transport; the guides and the hotels all more than met our expectations.

We had a most enjoyable and informative visit and the information from the tour guides significantly contributed to our enjoyment.

We completed two evaluation forms, provided by our first and third guide. Had we been given one for our time in Hue and Hoi An, we would have been equally complimentary of the guide's service. I am sure that Mike Moran will also be emailing you with other comments but we wanted you to know as soon as possible about our satisfaction and enjoyment of the service you provided.

Thank you again for your excellent service from the first contact to the last goodbye.

We would certainly recommend your company and the quality of your service to other future UK Travellers and tourists.

Best wishes and thanks,

Yours sincerely,

Richard & Joan Holdsworth, UK

The whole family really enjoyed our customized private tour that Ethnicvoyage Travel planned and provided for our family's vacation to Vietnam. Our tour was magical and we could not have asked for a better personal escort-guide and driver than you provided for our tour. He was truly informative and provided a fun and interesting tour for our entire family. Once again thank you.

The Family of John Mark from Sydney, Australia 

Pham recently hosted our group during a 10 day journey through Vietnam. I wasn't sure what to expect from a local guide. My family and I were very pleased with Pham - he has an excellent manner and was able to explain the many differences between Vietnam and our native countries (USA, the UK, Canada, New Zealand & Australia) clearly and without fault. He has an excellent sense of humour, bondless energy and a very patient manner.

Elspeth and I returned from the Mekong and Temples journey yesterday - it was marvellous and surpassed all our expectations. We had a super group of people, Tommy (our tour leader) was brilliant, and all the arrangements were just great.

Thank you very much for all your help and advice.

Paul Hill, Canada 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A great tour which allowed for individual differences, yet highlighted the importance of moving out of our comfort zones. It provided me with a more global context for issues that previously seemed black & white. I appreciated the balance of time and really enjoyed the group dynamics at dinner each night. I was also grateful for opportunities to support charities along the way. Well done, Local guide for your patience, tolerance and sense of humour!

Rosemarie Hardy, Australia 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We have just returned from our SE Asia trip and what an amazing time we had. I wanted to say “Thank You” again for all your help and also let you know the trip exceeded our expectations. Our Western tour leader John in Cambodia and Banny in Vietnam and Laos were great. They were both energetic and ensured that everything on our trip flowed smoothly.

We will definitely pass on to our friends our new find of Ethnicvoyage Travel, and plan to use you again.

Neville & Josephine, South Africa

"My VietNamese Hotpot journey exceeded all of my expectations and was really wonderful. It would have been very hard to do it independently and I am so glad I found your firm on the Internet. Can was a superb tour leader and I cannot fault her in any way. Even when there could have been a slight hiccup she was unfazed. The rest of the group were very good company and we all blended very well. For me, the highlight was Sapat. The other was our delightful guide in Sai gon , Bao , who invited us to visit his parent's farm in a village nearby. His charming parents laid on refreshments and he told us so much about the lifestyle and religion of the area. Fascinating.

Thank you for your help!"

Cristian Noiseau,UK 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ...definitely the most professional tour vacation I'd experienced. From the booking onwards, you folks have top ratings all-round. Your tour leader Pham deserves high praises for his expert handling....and both local guides (Sarem in Phnom Penh and Phath in Siem Reap) were also top-notch. I'll be spreading your company's virtue around, and from now on you folks will be the first tour company I'll look to for organizing any future outings out East. On behalf of Martin and myself, our eternal thanks for making the Cambodian vacation so relaxing and enjoyable by looking after us so well.

I would just like to write and thank your company for an excellent trip around Indochina - it was supremely wonderful. I would in particular like to commend the tour leaders, Jon and Linh (and the local guide who acted just as a tour leader in Laos, Viet nam, Virakhan Xayxana), as they did much to make the whole experience so enjoyable. I was impressed with their effortless organisation, willingness to cater to the group's individual needs (not an easy job), whilst still being able to socialise in a most pleasant way.

Just a quick note to let you know that our trip to Vietnam was a flawless adventure one that we will never forget. I know we hit the jackpot with Ethnicvoyage Travel for many reasons, but one of the biggest was the size of the group. If I ever go on another tour, it will be with a 15 person maximum! Anhly and all local guides were outstanding and the other travellers on our tour were all nice people and easy to get along with. We loved every minute, all the sites, food, history, people, etc. Truly a successful trip!

Sharon Veeh, USA 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have just returned from my holiday to Vietnam and Cambodia and wanted you to know that the trip was fantastic. We visited all the big ticket items, many small unknown places and had a great experience. The trip was very well organised, accommodation was much better than expected, guides were very good (a couple were exceptional). Congratulations on a well put together trip. Our tour guide was Lan. She started the trip as our guide but ended the trip as our friend. She was terrific as a guide, friend and travel companion. We never had to bother about anything...because she handled everything so well. She made sure all our accommodation was acceptable, helped with food and advice on what extra to see in our free time and above all she was just a pleasure to travel with.

Jean Pierre Nepveu, Canada

We had a great month of travel in Vietnam. Vietnam is a beautiful country, but a major contributor to the success of this trip was the excellent tour company, Ethnicvoyage Travel. The journey was obviously well planned by people who know and love the country and are sensitive to the needs of the traveller. A company can have a grand vision, but it is the front line people who make it happen and Ethnicvoyage Travel has obviously chosen its tour leaders and guides well. Fumi, our tour leader, won 12 devoted followers through her unfailing organizational skills, knowledge of the country, and good humour. Fumi knew how to help us have fun, and we shared many good meals, good times, and even a karaoke session. All our local guides were excellent, especially Mr Tuan . His English skills were excellent, his good humour and bad jokes endless, and his ability to answer our questions about Vietnam was exceptional. We are very glad we decided to travel with your company to Vietnam.

Marthe Bouthillier ,Canada

I adored Laos! The people are still so open and kind. It might just be my favourite country in Southeast Asia. We only had 8 people in our group and that was an ideal amount of companions. The logistics of the trip were fantastic; there were always vans waiting for us at each stop and airport, and the drivers were excellent! Our guide in Laos was a very nice guy who will get even better with more experience leading groups. I was impressed with your itinerary and the nice variety of accommodations. Based on my experience and on my travelmate's recommendations, I would definitely travel with you again. Thanks for sharing Laos with me.

Dawn Steiner, USA

I have just returned from the tour of a Tale of Three Cities and had an absolutely fantastic holiday. Jimmy was a superb organiser, she put 120% effort into the trip, and helped make it a journey of a lifetime. I would also like to add that the three local guides that assisted Tuan Nguyen were also excellent and certainly able to answer any questions that were put to them. I have recommended the tour to many people back in England - the space on the coach, the choice of hotels, the excellent choice of restaurants and overall maximizing the use of time to gain as much knowledge of Vietnam and Cambodia. I can say we all came back with a thorough comprehensive understanding of both those countries - much of it thanks to Tuan Nguyen . I enjoyed it so much that I am now thinking of joining one of your trips around North Viet nam - especially if your guides are the calibre of Tuan Nguyen . He really was exceptional.

Susan Bramley , UK

"We would like to thank you and everyone else involved from your company, Ethnicvoyage Travel, for our recent, absolutely amazing, fantastic trip. As this was our first trip with Ethnicvoyage Travel we were a little nervous about what was to come however, what did eventuate far exceeded our expectations. Thanks to the expertise, professionalism and passion of the tour guide Ann, and her three local helpers, every day unfolded as a magical experience leaving us with a 'real sense' of the places we visited.

As your brochure suggests, we 'were captivated by the wonders of the countries in which we travelled in' and our experiences increased our understanding of the history & culture of those places & their peoples.’

We have nothing but the highest praise for Ethnicvoyage Travel and will strongly recommend the company to all of our friends. Our sincerest congratulations for one of, if not, the best tour we have ever experienced." 

Philippe Bergeron, UK

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We travelled to Vietnam with you two years ago with Banny as our guide. We have travelled all over the world and this was by far the best experience of our lives. The small group travel concept is fabulous beyond words. We made some wonderful friends and enjoyed ourselves immensely. This year we are back and would like to see Viet nam this way with you again.

Michel Dang, USA 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I had the best trip to Vietnam with you and will not think twice about coming back to you when it's time to head back to Viet Nam,Laos and Cambodia. Great news about your UK office, hope it gets you more British support for your trips so you can run even more! We always recommend you - my American friend loved her trip last year proving you really do have international appeal!

Tricia Watson, UK 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We are just sorting our Vietnam photos and recalling what an enjoyable trip it was! Everything went very well. The group of 8 got along very well which contributed a lot to the enjoyment of the tour - we all ate out most nights together, a good indication I think. Our tour leader John Tran, was excellent and organisation of everything went very smoothly. As an introduction to Vietnam it worked very well, and we'll certainly consider another Ethnichvoyage Travel tour in the future. We have already recommended your website to friends and family.

We had a wonderful time – what a thoroughly professional and well organised company! Thang was our tour guide and we were so lucky to have her - she has a real passion for the country and the people. I loved Vietnam and will be heading back there. I loved Hoi An - the beach, food of the area, art galleries, tailors and the fact every bar had 5 hour happy hour 2 for 1 drinks each night! I have already got a couple of our clients that I am going to go through Ethnicvoyage Travel 's brochure and my pictures with.

The Vietnam tour was Fantastic....our tour guide, Tuan , from Ethnicvoyaye Travel was one out of the box !!! It was so good having someone organise internal flights, where to eat, what to expect to pay etc. etc. He was our eyes, ears and tastebuds. The pace of the tour was also great. Do put Vietnam on your agenda before it becomes too commercial. The food, people, countryside, history and shopping are all soooo amazing!

Ann Hitchings, Sydney, Australia 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I do want to go on record to say that our trip last January to Cambodia and Vietnam was a huge, huge once-in-a-lifetime experience for us two. We have been praising your company every chance we've had since we returned home. Your planning, your timing, your sensitivity, your professionalism were extraordinary!

Dear Mr. Kevin Tran,

We are currently in Phan thiet at leisure, enjoying our last days in your beautiful country. We had great time. We are very satisfy from all the services we have received until now. Guides were very professional, food was great, accommodation up to the expectations.. I strongly believe that next year we will come back to Vietnam. I hope I will be able to use your reservation again.

Talk & write to you soon.

Best regards,

If you are visiting Vietnam, Halong Bay is the cruise you can't miss out on. Admittedly its better if in a group or couple, but its a nice way to make new friends and enjoy some quiet time, with no noise or traffic and just the sky and nature. If you are going out of Hanoi its a long drive out but the scenery en route is beautiful passing through several villages and seeing the countryside. Its tiring getting there, but once you arrive you wont regret it.A little boat takes you out to your cruise ship (I preferred the private Junk rather than the big boat). The staff friendly and smiling will take you down to your room. Its a bit small but comfy with a little porthole looking out over the horizon. Your own bathroom and shower as well. Simple but comfortable.The boat sets off passing by little cliffs and small islands as well as local fishing villages. Some of the locals paddle up to the boat selling little snacks or drinks and nice to talk to. The boat itself is quite big including a dining room for guests to have locally prepared dishes, seafood obviously, quite delicious. Stops along the way to visit some caves, or take a litttle boat ride add to the fun.

Dinner is served and then its down for the night. Fishing is an option but dont expect to catch much.
Waking up to a hot cup of coffee, a light drizzle and cool air make it an experience to remember.
3 day trips or more are available as well, optional, but the one night aboard a Junk did it for me. Thanks Discovery Halong Travel for a such haliday in Halong Bay – world heriateg site

It seems as though it was ages since we were in Vietnam, but it has only been a few weeks. We had a most wonderful time traveling with our friends, the Haywards from Canada. We were pleased with all aspects of our trip. We especially enjoyed our Mai Chau outing the two cooking schools and the beach at Hoi An. When we were planning our vacation we communicated with several different tour companies. It was mainly your extreme promptness and assistance that convinced us to select Discovery Halong Travel. Thanks for your assistance.”

We just wanted to thank you for all the help you gave us in setting up our wonderful trip to Vietnam. It was our first trip to Asia, and it was fantastic. We also would like to tell you that our guide, Mr. Phuong, was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about what we saw, and had lots of information about Vietnamese history and culture. He was also able to speak English very well, which made it a pleasure touring with him. He had a lot to do with making our Vietnam trip special.

We felt a warm welcome on our arrival and were extremely well looked after during our stay making us feel relaxed and happy to be in Vietnam. We appreciated all the information given both historic and cultural, Mr Phuong. being a pleasure to be with. We also had every confidence in our driver. A thoroughly professional service. Would strongly recommend this company to others.

We spent a great day with Ethnic Voyage in this city. The tour was very well organized, and our consultant KEvin even gave us many tips before our arrival. Our tour guide was professional and helpful. He greeted us at the lobby in the hotel, showed us the best attractions, like the Old Saigon Post Office, the Presidential Palace, City Hall etc. And he even help us to find out the best restaurant for our lunch and dinner. It was really a great experience to travel with Ethnic Voyage, and we would definitely use them again
