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

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
