We, a group of 5 friends from India visited Vietnam from 5th January to 12th January. We visited Ha Long Bay, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
Right from the planning stages, we were helped by 'Hannah', she was informative and guided us in making an itinerary which covers all the major destinations without making the trip too hectic and within our budget.
Right from airport transfers, to Visa letter, to hotels, to city tours, to cruise everything was perfect.
We surely recommend them if you want to get perfect, personalized, professional services.

Our tour was booked by Realistic Asia thru Travel Triangle. The total itinerary arranged by Realistic Asia was really good. All you have to do is give them the dates and the type of holiday you are looking for and they'll customise the itinerary. The best part is even the smallest details were taken care of. And they ensure that you enjoy your vacation. Unlike other companies, they continuously check whether you have reached all the places correctly, time adherence is of prime importance for them and they are available for any guidance whenever you want. Hotel availability and private transfers were pre arranged, so no waiting for the cabs to come and pick you :)
It was a really great experience and Ms Lana from Realistic Asia actually ensured that we make the most of the trip.
And yes, Vietnam is really a good place. Would love to settle there.

Realistic Asia really came through for us in an astounding way. Our vacation was originally booked for the winter of 2020, however it was put on hold due to Covid until just recently. All though the company changed names and we dealt with several different agents; the original personalized itinerary we had chosen was honoured to every last detail with only a few minor revisions due to changes with some flight options. Lucy Do, our most recent agent was so friendly and helpful before and during our trip. She promptly answered e-mails, responded immediately to messages and frequently checked-in. In fact, Lucy came to personally meet us at our hotel in Hanoi. Overall the trip went very smoothly, all arrangements were perfectly orchestrated. There were never any issues with flights, trains etc. All of our drivers and guides were always on time, very attentive and most accommodating. The tours were well planned and for the most part, the hotels were very nice and well situated. We had one issue with a hotel that we didn’t feel met the same standards as the others, however Lucy quickly made alternate arrangements for us. Our trip was 23 days in total; we travelled to Cambodia, Laos and throughout Vietnam, spending the last 4 days relaxing at a beautiful resort on the Island of Phu Quoc. If you are looking for reliable and reputable travel agency for a stress-free and reasonably priced Indochina tour, I would highly recommend Realistic Asia.

We were on a 16 day trip through Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand organized by Realistic Asia and absolutely loved it! They organized all of the flights to Vietnam and then home from Thailand, as well as the internal flights. They also booked the hotels and the tours, although we did organize some additional tours ahead of time on our own for the leisure days. Each of the tours tended to be run by people local to the city being visited and each of the tour guides was very professional and very enjoyable.

The itinerary was such that we started in Vietnam, beginning in Hanoi and then Hoi An, and Ho Chi Minh city, then to Siem Reap, Cambodia and finally ending in Phuket, Thailand. Each of the places was different and had things to admire and explore. Phuket was the beach place, although we found Hoi An had a great beach as well.

We were very impressed and very happy with each and every hotel we were booked into. They were all very clean, nice and safe and had great staff. Would happily go back to stay at every one of them again.

The travel agent who worked with us, David Huynh (Dat) was amazing! He was super responsive both before the trip when we had questions and during the trip when we were unsure about anything. We were on the leading edge of the Coronavirus pandemic and he actually noticed that our original flight to Vietnam was going through Seoul and we would have been forced to quarantine upon landing in Vietnam so he went ahead and changed our flights just days before we were to leave. We then got a notice that our flight home had been cancelled and that we needed to catch a flight home a day later. He went ahead and extended our hotel stay another night. We didn't even have to pay.

We did not know what to expect when we booked the tour but after having gone we would enthusiastically recommend Realistic Asia and we would definitely go on another trip with them.

I traveled as a single, 72 year old woman. This agency was reasonable, very responsive to my questions and concerns, and all of the reservations went as clockwork. They were available via WhatsApp during the trip if I needed them so I never felt alone. The flights, hotels, activities and tours were all very good. This was not a high-end tour but it was exactly what I wanted. I prefer to stay in more local hotels, as opposed to American chains, and use foreign airlines. I would travel with Realistic Asia again.

My husband and I are just back from a 14 night private tour or Vietnam. “ luxurious Vietnam city to beach tour” , we purchased this through secret escapes but the actual tour was put together by Realistic Asia . I am a travel agent myself for a large UK based company but I could not match the choices and prices so was happy to book through a specialist company who knows the area and has access to the local English speaking guides etc. As soon as we booked I contacted Realistic Asia as I had questions that the broker - secret escapes , couldn’t answer. Rosie, the representative assigned to my booking has been amazing! She immediately answered my questions and set up a WhatsApp chat so that I could contact her with any concerns - she was very responsive and always courteous and was able to adjust the booking to meet my needs ( upgrading the Halong Bay cruise etc for a more luxurious ship than the one originally in the itinerary . Every aspect of our trip went to clockwork and far exceeded our expectations. The tours and guides showed us so many facets of this beautiful country and having Rosie at hand to support us gave us extra confidence travelling to areas that we may have missed if we had put this together by ourselves . Thank you Rosie and the team for an unforgettable holiday. ( special thanks to the Apricot Hotel in Hanoi and to the guide Jade who both made my birthday whilst in Vietnam so memorable) - I would definitely recommend Realistic Asia to travel in this area.

My husband and I arranged for a private 15 day travel tour in Viet Nam with Henry from Realistic Asia, traveling from Hanoi, through Hue, Halong Bay, Hoi An and Ho Chi Minh City. In every city, we got service with a smile. Our drivers were experienced, cars clean and pleasant to ride in; our guides knowledgeable and eager to attend to any requests.
At one point, we wanted to change the itinerary. Henry responded quickly to satisfy our request.
I highly recommend arranging Viet Nam travel with this agency. You get what is promised at booking time plus.

Vietnam Vignettes.....that's how I wish to describe my short but memorable trip in Vietnam. Shadow was my contact man for the trip to Hanoi, Halong Bay & HCMC. we were in contact throughout & he ensured a flawless itinerary to include pick-ups ,drops and local tours. All queries regarding local information was promptly addressed by him. it leaves a great impression for my family knowing that a tight schedule involving multiple locations is being closely monitored by an efficient friend like Shadow. The name says it all. I and my family wish him the best & would seek his services again in the future.

We booked our recent 2 week trip to Vietnam with KimKim. It was a fantastic experience from the beginning to the end. First we filled out an online questionnaire, then spoke to a KimKim person by phone to make sure what we were looking for. We were then connected with Alex from Realistic Asia, who works with KimKim to design trips to Asia. Alex patiently went through 3 separate versions of our trip before we finalized the itinerary. Our trip included all lodgings, internal transfers, at least one meal per day, and private tours. We visited Hanoi, Ha Long Bay, Hoi An, and Ho Chi Minh City.

We cannot say enough good things about the entire experience! Every hotel was superb. And our private guides and drivers in each location took exceptional care of us, with every need taken care of! They were all knowledgeable and personable. We felt that they were our best friends. Special shoutouts to Cương in Hanoi, Dong and Tai in Hoi An, and Vinh in HCMC! And our drivers were punctual, friendly, and safe. Our dietary preferences were addressed in every location.

The selection of excursions and tours was superb. We had time on our own in each location, and our guides treated us to wonderful tours to make sure we hit the “must-sees” and got oriented. And in every location we included a fantastic cultural experience. We went to Ba Vi and had lunch with Mrs Chin and her wonderful daughters, and partied with the local rice wine distiller. We rode bikes through the rice paddies in Hoi An, visited with a grandmother who was part of an organic farm collective, and had some custom clothing made by one of the local tailor shops. In HCMC, we spent a fantastic day touring around the Mekong delta by boat, TukTuk, and canoe.

Last but certainly not least, we need to say that Vietnam is an extraordinary travel destination! The cities are vibrant, the countryside is beautiful, the beaches are exquisite, the food amazing, and the people are charming and welcoming. Every single person we met was happy to see us, and more than once we were stopped on the street by a stranger who said hello and wanted to shake our hands.
