My mother and I spent 12 days in Vietnam and Cambodia and with the help of Ms. Hoa Tran from Exotic Voyages the trip could not have been better! She worked with us to create our ideal itinerary and was flexible with our needs. Everything she planned (including multiple trips/meals to local homes) was fantastic and so well planned out. We started in Hanoi, flew to Hue, drove to Danang and Hoi An, flew to Cambodia, and ended in Ho Chi Minh City. Ms. Hoa Tran made sure that all our transportation from city to city, and site to site, was smooth and easy.

Our guides in Hanoi were welcoming, knowledgeable, and a joy to be with while we toured the city. We especially loved Xuan, our guide in Hue, Hoi An, and Danang who answered any and all questions we had and was extremely flexible when we decided we had spent enough time at Hoi An and wanted to see Danang before we left for Cambodia. We had only a short time in Cambodia, but Ms. Hoa Tran was able to maximize our time with a wonderful boat trip to local floating villages. Our guide in Ho Chi Minh City helped us find a wonderful local Pho restaurant that was the best Pho we had while in Vietnam! Overall, our accommodations in all five cities were perfect!

Ms. Hoa Tran helped my mom and I make cherished memories on a trip of a lifetime!

What a memorable tour of Northern Vietnam, thank you so much! You listened to our personal requirements and truly created the perfect visit for our little family! Our guide (nickname Jonny!) was very good, our 7 year old son loved spending time with him! He even managed to get our 7 year old daughter to the top of a mountain climb when she thought she could go no further - she was so proud of herself and her achievement! Despite being a last minute booking you still managed to ensure all the accommodation had connecting rooms which meant we all rested well at each location. Staying where we started really helped us too as we stored unneeded luggage. For me the highlight was the 2 night cruise with Au co, for my son it was the homestay (he loved the freedom of exploring the grounds and fishing!). The best seats in the theatre for the water puppet show was a great ending, my daughter was very impressed!

The tour was flawless, we knew exactly what we were doing next and it happened exactly when it was supposed to! Thank you x

Last year my wife and I planned an anniversary trip to Vietnam through Exotic Voyages and their travel designer Hoa Tran. The entire planning was easy and she mapped out for us a wonderful and relaxing and invigorating journey from the top to the bottom of this beautiful country. Our trip included all of the major sightseeing places,plus customized culinary experiences and contact with the locals. As our travel date approached, we were nervous about the coronavirus, but on he day of our departure, there had been no new cases in Vietnam for almost a month, and all previous patients had recovered. While we were in transit,however, a Vietnamese woman was returning from Northern Italy and London, bringing the virus with her. This,of course, changed everything. As the disease spread through the country, lots of things were shut down,and restrictions applied. Hoa never stopped working to assure us a pleasant and safe trip,and organized alternatives to adapt the changing circumstances. What could have been a disaster instead remained a reasonably pleasant (although worrisome) journey. I HIGHLY recommend their services and wish to express my gratitude for their caring professional service a"above and beyond" what would be expected. THANKS AGAIN!

9 days tour in Northern Vietnam and my second trip to Vietnam. Again it was beyond my expectations! Covid19 delayed this trip but luckily Vietnam is open again.

The whole trip was well planned by Hoa from EV and she made sure everything was perfect. My private driver Thang and private guide Ngoc were so great! We were driving every day to a new place but sitting in the car for 5 hours for 100-120 km did not feel bad. All the time there was something new to be seen. Driving on those mountain roads would have been impossible to do by myself.

My expectations of home stays were exceeded – friendly hosts and so delicious home-cooked food! All the hotels were lovely and of good quality.

The scenery in Northern Vietnam is unbelievable – so beautiful everywhere be it sunshine or thunderstorm, morning, day, or evening. The trip started from Hanoi and the places visited included Ba Be lake, Meo Vac, Pi Leng Pass, the Vuong palace in Dong Van, the “Heaven Gate” in Quan Ba, and of course Ha Giang. Ha Giang loop was on my bucket list for a long time. On the way back to Hanoi there was also a very nice traditional market in Bac Ha.

Mid-September was the right time to see rice terraces with ripening rice. Some of it was already yellow, some of it still green and some of it already harvested.

Seeing the many ethnic groups in Northern Vietnam was also a really nice experience – the children are the same everywhere and the smile of people is the same everywhere.

EV can be highly recommended for this type of visit.

We just kicked off our tour of South East Asia yesterday in Hanoi with Exotic Voyages. Our experience so far beginning right from the airport had been seem less. We skipped the lines and were at our hotel within 45 mins.

Our guide Trung was absolutely amazing and the itinerary for the day had us immersed in the culture of the countryside in the morning, walking the streets of the Old Quarter in the afternoon and a nighttime scooter tour of famous landmarks along with a delicious tasting menu at a local restaurant. Trung was so informative throughout the course of the whole day. He loves his City and it really shows. His knowledge of the history of Vietnam’s past along with his stories of growing up in Hanoi made for a wonderful day. I can not say enough good things about the trip so far expect they have exceeded our expectations and we are only 2 days in. Next stop Ha Long Bay!!!

I stumbled across Exotic Voyages while attempting to plan a Tour of Thailand girls trip when comparing prices with a local travel company I often use for out of the country travel. I found my rep Vy to be very prompt, accommodating and super helpful with answering all of my questions in tailoring our trip, excursion choices and length of days as we wished. We spent time in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, and Phuket, and a last stop in Singapore. We had exemplary service from guides, tours, airport pickups and drop-offs without having to worry about anything. We even added a last minute excursion in Phuket that Vy was also able to arrange. Would I use the exotic voyages team again? Absolutely! I've already referred them to someone else since our return back to TX. The price comparison was actually also cheaper than my travel agency person that I ordinarily use.

This was our first trip to Vietnam and Cambodia. It was well organized and a marvelous experience. Our tour planner HaVy was exceptional in accomdating all our requests. She was extremely helpful and efficient in reorganizing our itinerary when we needed to make last minute changes. The personalized food tours,historical tours,hotels and special events were totally geared to our requests. We couldn't have planned a better trip ourselves. I would definitely recommend you have Exotic Voyages take care of your visas. It made it so easy and hassle free at the designated airports.
Exotic Voyages is definitely a first class company that's very well organized and strives to personalize your trip so that it makes it an unforgettable experience. I would highly recommend that anyone that wants a worry free and memorable vacation to use Exotic Voyages as their choice of tour company

Good English, everything was on time, picture were provide during rafting experience (we did not expect that!). Hoa was very efficient in providing a custom made trip on our last day in Ko Samui.

Exotic Voyages knocked it out of the park again! Vietnam/Cambodia was our second trip with Exotic Voyages and, just like our first adventure to Thailand, was fantastic!

Our trip started on my wife's birthday where flowers and a cake were waiting at our first restaurant and ended with us enjoying the sunset on a private boat on Tonle Sap Lake in Cambodia. It was especially memorable because our eldest son accompanied us.

Hoa Tran is a travel guru who has planned both of our trips. We had the pleasure of meeting Hoa and her family in Hanoi and she was a delightful lady. The biggest challenge now is where our third adventure will take us.....we can't wait!!

After much online research we opted for a 12 day personal tour of Vietnam offered by Exotic Voyages. Our travel coordinator was Hoa Tran and we could not have been more pleased. ...our trip included Hanoi, Mai Chau, Han La Bay, Hoi An, Saigon and Mekong Delta.
We let Hoa know what type of travelers we were and what we would like to see and do; she took it from there and arranged a wonderful trip for us. Her personal recommendations/suggestions made our trip even more special. We has an opportunity to take cooking classes, meet several local families and truly experience Vietnamese culture.
Our entire trip was arranged online and any questions/concerns were answered promptly. Our hotels were lovely, tours fun and exciting and our guides/drivers knowledgeable and professional.
I highly recommend paying a little extra for the Visa expediting upon arrival...this made our entry smooth and fast.
We especially loved the cruise of Han La Bay overnight from Heritage Cruise Lines and the Vietnam By Scooters Food Tour in Saigon. Not to be missed.
Thank you Exotic Voyages, we look foward to our next journey to South East Asia.
