“Indochina Odyssey Tours-Myanmar private tour-excellent”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

My husband and I have just returned from our 10 day private tour of Myanmar, organised by our travel agent, Echo Pan of Indochina Odyssey Tours.
It was amazing. Everything worked seamlessly, from our pick up in Bangkok through to our return to Bangkok. We were collected at each city in Myanmar by an informative, attentive, thoughtful guide and experienced driver in a large, comfortable modern, air conditioned car-from a Ford Ltd through to a Toyota camry and even a van to ourselves. We organised our own itinerary and requested 4 star accommodation. The accommodation was much better than we had been led to believe in Australia, was possible to have in Myanmar. All up we had 5 internal flights within Myanmar and 4 tour guides and 4 drivers. We would have to say, the highlight of our tour was Inle Lake-it was surreal and our accommodation there was sheer decadence. We were thoroughly spoiled and made to feel like V.I.Ps.
Echo Pan answered all our emails within hours and happily and efficiently worked with us to organise our itinerary.
We can highly recommend Indochina Odyssey Tours and the excellent service which they provide.

“Indochina Odyssey Tours, highly recommended”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Do not hesitate to book services with this travel company, Indochina Odyssey Tours. Our tour coordinator was Laura and she was just great to work With! My husband and I had already booked Airline tickets and hotels for our first trip to Asia. My husband was a little nervous about traveling in Cambodia and so we booked tour guide services with Indochina Odyssey Tours. We are SO GLAD we did.
Before we left Hong Kong for Phnom Penh we got emails and phone calls from the company checking in and checking on us.
Our guide in Phnom Penh was Mr. Chanseng, a very knowledgeable young man
who spoke excellent English. He brought a driver with him and navigated the ins and outs and ticketing, etc of Phnom Penh.. His service and knowledge was excellent. And because he guided just my husband and myself we saw and learned more than we ever could have on our own.
In Siem Reap the tour coordinator met us at the hotel and checked in with us when we arrived. Our tour started the next morning and our tour guide Mr. Vannak picked us up at ou hotel in the morning with a driver and a Lexus SUV. So although you can bike or tuk tuk to many of the temples, we rode in air conditioned comfort. We were in Siem Reap in mid-Feb and it was hot and humid with temperatures in the 90 + degrees fahrenheit. Our guide navigated the ins and outs of ticketing, lines, etc, he spoke excellent English, was easy to understand, and shared a wealth of knowledge. When we finished touring a temple the driver would meet us with the car, cold bottled water, and a cold face cloth. We saw and learned much more than we could have if we had made other arrangements. With the SUV we saw we able to travel easily and see more of the countryside. This was an excellent service from beginning to end with daily contact from the tour company to make sure everything was going well. Again because it was just my husband and I on the tour we went at our pace and just had a fabulous trip.
I am writing this review in case anyone out there is wondering if they should book a tour/tour guide ahead of time with this company. My advice is YES. Of course it will be a bit more expensive, but for us it was well worth it!

“Vietnam Highlights”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

We have just returned from a 2 week trip to Vietnam and cannot speak highly enough of Indochina Odyssey Tours and in particular our travel consultant Susan Su. With two couples in the group, Susan tailor made our trip, taking into account our special requests. The planning stage was made easy with Susan in regular contact via email. All arrangements made met or exceeded our expectations. Guides and drivers were reliable and very attentive to our needs. We really appreciated having a minibus just for us and driver to negotiate the busy traffic. Our Guide in each city provided fascinating insights into Vietnamese life.
Our journey through Vietnam from Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hoi An, Nha Trang and Ho Chi Minh City included excellent accommodation, internal flights and a train leg. We did some research and requested particular hotels. Susan made sure she booked the hotels and rooms requested.
We also travelled with IOT in 2012, with a trip to China. I highly recommend this tour group and Susan Su to others.

“IOT takes care of the details”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

We just completed a 22-day tour of Vietnam, Lao and Cambodia with help from IOT. With 3 countries, 8 major destinations, five tour guides, five flights within SE Asia, a return train trip, and 22 hotel nights, it would be easy for something to go astray but it was handled expertly. It was our first trip to this part of the world, so having IOT handle every detail, leaving us to enjoy our time there was really important. We found it helpful to talk directly with our agent Echo (Skype worked just fine), and to help her understand who we are and our travel preferences. Although occasionally the itinerary description did not precisely match up with the actual tour, it was close, and I left feeling that adjustments had been made to accommodate local circumstances. The guides were friendly, knowledgeable, and fun and they prepared us well for anything unusual we might encounter along the way! The surprises were all the good kind; not the ones that give travelers headaches.

“The best holiday we have ever had”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

My partner and I took a 22 day private tour organized for us by Indochina Odyssey Tours, and let me straight away it was the best trtip we ever had. Their travel consultant, Yeliz Wong worked tireelessly with us to ensure a custom itinerary that met our needs perfectly, and during the trip itself actually contacted us from time to time to make sure everything was OK. The organisation was faultless, the guides were excellent, the hotels were of a good standard, and the food was wonderful. We saw so much, including Ho Chi Minh City, the Mekong Delta, Hanang Bay, Hanoi, Sapa and the northern mountains, Laos, Canbodia and so much more.

We could not have received any better treatment if we had been royalty! Thank you!
