“Vietnam experience was amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Thanks to Echo Pan from the team. With 9 people all having their input, she dealt with all changes professionally and quickly.
Our tour from the North to the South of Vietnam was fantastic and worry free thanks to the guides, drivers and Echo. Everyone was professional but also warm and friendly.
Even when we changed our tour mid tour it was done with ease.
Looking forward to booking another holiday with Indochina Odyssey Tours.

IF - and I am pretty sure it will be after reading all the praises for IOT on trip advisor - our trip will be as smooth and detailed as the help of Eric - we are about to board an extraordinary adventure throughout Indochina...
Thank you SO much for everything Eric!

“Thailand, Laos and Cambodia-Great Trip and Experiences”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Like many reviewers several months ago, we were somewhat reluctant to book with a company which had no US office or representatives. However, like others, IOT was quick to respond to our initial inquiry, and Alick Peng, our tour consultant responded to every email within 24 hours and patiently incorporated many revisions into the proposed itinerary as we refined our plans for our 15 day trip. We chose IOT because they were very professional, and the price was competitive. Payment via PayPal offered some additional assurance.
IOT arranged all hotels and 4 inter-Asia flights: Bangkok-Chiang Mai-Luang Prabang-Siem Reap-Bangkok. The hotels will have separate reviews, but all were deluxe with excellent service. We were a little nervous in advance about Lao Airlines, but the aircraft were modern and the pleasant cabin attendants served food and drink on very short flights. Check-in at hotels and for flights was smooth, with no glitches.
When we arrived in each city, our guides were waiting for us, outside of the baggage claim, even for our 11:45 PM arrival in Bangkok. All of the guides and drivers were professional, and the vehicles were newer and well-maintained. The guides followed our planned itinerary. We were especially pleased with our guide in Bangkok, Toy, who stayed with us beyond the planned tour, as we added additional activities into the evening hours.
We took cooking classes in each of the 3 countries; the one in Chiang Mai was recommended by IOT, while the other 2 were selected by us, based on TA reviews. Our only complaint (minor) is that this school, the Baan Thai Cookery School was not up to the standards of the other 2 schools.
We highly recommend IOT and expect to use them again for future travel.

Dear phillyvoyagers,

Thanks for taking time to write a review on your 15-day trip to Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia. We’re delighted to hear you had a great trip with us, and were happy with the customized itinerary, the guides, the drivers and the hotels arranged by us.

I’m sorry that the Baan Thai Cookery School was not not up to the standards of the other 2 schools. In the future we should work hard to provide more precise information.

Thanks for recommendation and trust. We’re looking forward to serving you again in the future!
Regards,
Lucy Peng

“Laos in comfort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Our driver and guides in Laos provided by the Indochina Odyssey tours looked after us very well. The vehicle was very comfortable and we were provided with bottled water ( very necessary in the hot humid climate).
Both guides had good knowledge base, were cheerful and easy to get on with. They dealt with any minor changes of plan easily and we felt nothing was too much trouble for them.
The driver never made me feel unsafe and got us to each destination swiftly and comfortably.
The booked hotels varied in quality but all were adequate, the Green Park Boutique Hotel in Vientiane was definitely the best.

We were a group of seven touring SEA (Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand ) for a month and one couple continued to China for a week. The trip was arranged through Indochina Odyssey Tours. We were very pleased and happy with our trip , it was a wounderful expeience.The planning, organization, sightseeing, accomodaton, food , the lineup of English speaking guides and drivers were all great and very well put together . Eric Kong, our Travel Consultant , was in continous communication with us before, during and after he trip . He ensured that the program meets our expectations and included all the places we wanted to see. I highly recommend this Travel Agency for a great customer service.
