My Granddaughter and myself booked a holiday with Explorient Travel Vietnam and had the best time. The hotels were great, the guides were so helpful, and the drivers very careful and courteous. Everything went to plan, and I can highly recommend booking with Explorient Travel.

Our experience with Explorient Travel started with total miscommunication - the tour itinerary clearly indicated that our guide would pick us up at 6 am. A bit early for our liking, as we were travelling with a 5-year-old but . After waiting a half-hour and numerous calls from our hotel reception we find out that it was actually scheduled for 8 am. Our guide arrived at 8.20 surprised to see us so early - according to his information he was to meet us at 8.30 am. Again, despite what the itinerary said, the two-hour drive from Hanoi to Mai Chau took closer to four. The vehicle was nice and comfortable, both driver and guide were helpful and friendly but it did feel like a very long trip (especially, with the little one on board). The village itself was interesting with beautiful surroundings and good photo opportunities. We were provided with a traditional lunch (with a generous selection of local specialties), followed by a tour through the craft market, and then a walk through the rice fields, after which it was time to head back to Hanoi... and another four hours on the road. I'd probably go with Explorient again (double checking the itinerary, though) but for the amount of time on the road, it probably would have made more sense to stay overnight at one of the many homestays in the village, allowing for more time to take in the beauty of the surroundings.

Explorient Travel and other tour groups offer half-day and one-day biking trips to what they call the "countryside." We decided to book with Explorient Travel because their website described a "drive" to the countryside, which we interpreted as a van trip to the location of the bikes. But no. We were given (fairly old) bikes right in the city (no helmets) and, with our guide, set out for a death-defying (we were lucky) ride through Hanoi traffic and across a long bridge over the Red River. Anyone who has ever tried to cross a street in Hanoi will know what a terrible idea this is. We persisted through the insane and terrifying traffic, thinking we would eventually come to the "spectacular views" promised by the website. Instead, we met still more insane traffic, dusty dirt roads, smoke from fields burning, and ugly industrial areas. When we finally reached the pottery village, which was our first destination, we were all traumatized and one of us near tears. We ended the trip and got a cab back to our hotels. By the way, I am a very fit and adventurous traveler.
