Each tour he arranged used an interesting and helpful guide. He or a team member was always accessible and responded to our requests and changes with patience! And he also fixed a visa issue in a timely manner. One important piece to know. We took care of our own hotels and hired Kelvin for only some days of guidance. US citizens that leave Vietnam and re-enter a couple of days later, need an ADDITIONAL visa to re-enter Vietnam. Your 30 day Evisa only works as single entry. I would recommend Kelvin and his team any day.read less

I have nothing but positive coments on everything that Indochina Travel did for my husband and me for this trip. Amazing Kelvin and Anna from Indochina organized everything as per our personal prefferences and wishes and there is nothing I would add or remove from this beautifully organized trip. All the tours that we had were amazing, all our tour guides, drivers and hotels were excellent, everything on time, not even one hickup. We both fell in love with Vietnam and Cambodia. People were absolutely amazing ! Communication with Kelvin and Anna was excellent. If we had any question, it was answered right away, no matter what time of day or night we contacted them. If I can give 10Stars, I would. Thank you so much for such an amazing time in your beautiful country !!!!Diana and Arnieread less

It's our special trip to celebrate our 25th anniversary. Kelvin did much better than our expectation. He recommended us a wonderful itinerary with very logical length of stay for each and activities we should have done. We started from Siem Reap, flied to Saigon, Mekong, Hoian, Hue, Hanoi and Halong bay - all together for 18 days. We had him booked all: hotels, flights, a train, cruises, tours and transportations. All well as planned. We had nothing to complain with. We were always welcomed by smilling guides/drivers at all destiantions we arrived. All the hotels were perfect and located in the center. Our private guides for all city tours did perfect job - we have never had so great guides before.We did all online and Kelvin was so promptly. He arranged time to see us at our hotel in Hanoi. Very professional. I did recommend Kelvin to my friends. If you come to Vietnam, book him. You will never regret.read less

From my very first email contact with Kelvin Do, he was professional, friendly, with excellent communication, often replying to my (many, many), queries within the hour. Kelvin tailor made a 15 Day Vietnam Tour for my group of myself and 3 teenagers. Couldn't have been happier. Multiple exciting tours, 3 train trips, a flight, pick up and drop off transfers for every step along the way. Once we were in Vietnam the wonderful Rosie Huynh took over as our Tour Manager. Rosie is simply amazing. Any questions or help we needed when we were there were responded to promptly. Rosie was always only a message away. This was very comforting as I was a single mother traveling with 3 teenagers. The holiday happened without a hitch. We all had such a wonderful time. Thank you Kelvin, Rosie and Indochina Treks!read less
Should you need to contact us during a situation of dire need, it is best to first call the travel consultant whom you deal with and then our hot line contact. If for any reason you do not receive an immediate answer, please send us a detailed message and contact information by email, so they may return your call and assist you as soon as possible.
Our all travel consultants use WhatApps. Please ensure that you have the contact number. It's best to buy a local sim-card. Most hotels offer free wifi. So it's very easy to contact in urgent case.
If you book small group tour option, please note that the tour combines with our other tours. As such, the staff and/or particular vehicles operating your tour may change between tour segments. You may also expect some group members to join or leave the tour, between tour segments.
You can start the tour on any date (please contact our consultant in advance to avoid peak dates or holidays) and customize itinerary with extra days/activities at any destination.
If you book private tour for your group, we will use private cars, different stationed guides at each location. For some long routes (or Halong/Mekong cruise package), private car would be not necessary, and very expensive (unless you are a big group). We would suggest join bus transfer where possible then.
For all internal flights - if included, we would use any as Vietnamairlines, Vietjesair, Jestar, Cambodia Angkorair or Laos Airlines, depending on the itinerary. Most domestic flights in Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar, airlines would use small 70 seat ATR72 for short distances. Most airlines in Vietnam use the Airbus A321. 20kg for checkin luggage and 7kg for hand-bag is included in the price.
International flights pre/post tour must be booked by your self before travelling date.
Train travel in Vietnam is very basic and not at western standard. Sleeper trains normally have 4 seats per compartment, which convert into sleeping bunks (two upper and two lower). A sheet, pillow and blanket are provided. At times, passengers of different genders may be required to share a sleeper train berth and/or share a compartment with people not travelling in your group. For short distance - 3 hours (as Hue to Danang or vv), you will do the trip on soft/hard seat carriage.
Simple food is available on the train but many people like to stock up on freshly baked bread, cheese and fruit prior to departure. You should have meal and buy water before the journey.
Train journeys in Vietnam are an experience and allow you to get a real taste of Vietnam.
We would use different hotel categories and you can select any basing on your budget. So your travel companions would not stay at the your hotel. A Hotel Voucher will be provided once your tour is confirmed with all hotel details. In case suggested hotels are full, we would use others of similar standard/price.
Note*: if you want other hotels instead of our suggested ones, please contact us for details.

Most of the cafe, hotel, Shop, Restaurants in Vietnam also provide free wifi.
Compare to other neighboring countries, Wifi access in Vietnam is so much convenient.
All airport transfers are included in the tour price. You should provide us your arrival/departure flight details and we will arrange things basing on the information. A meeting sign with your name and all flight details will be sent to you. Please be ready at the lobby at pointed time for pickup.
Driver/guide should always be present at the airport before your arrival time. If you could not find the driver, please contact your travel consultant who you deal with. For any reason that airport transfer could not be arranged, please take the taxi to the hotel. We will refund the money then.
Travel insurance is not included in our tour price. When travelling with us, you are suggested to buy insurance that covers all medical coverage, cancellation, personal liability, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects.
We strongly recommend the use of a neck wallet or money belt while travelling, for the safe keeping of your passport, air tickets, travelers' cheques, cash and other valuable items. Leave your valuable jewelry at home - you won't need it while travelling. Many of the hotels we use have safety deposit boxes which is the most secure way of storing your valuables. A lock is recommended for securing your luggage.
Be aware that petty theft can be an issue in some towns and cities especially late at night. A common tactic is opportunists on motorbikes that drive by and snatch bags. Please always leave valuables and passports etc in your hotel in safety boxes if available and only carry with you enough cash to spend for the day. Bags should always be carried over the neck and not left to sit on your shoulder.

It is customary in Asia to tip service providers such as waiters, at approximately 10%, depending on the service. Tipping is expected - though not compulsory - and shows an expression of satisfaction with the people who have assisted you on your tour. Although it may not be customary to you, it is of considerable significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels. There are several times during the trip where there is opportunity to tip the local guides or drivers we use. Recommendations for tipping drivers and local guides would range from $3-$5 USD per person per day depending on the quality and length of the service.
