What Our Customers Saying...

Excellent Thailand Trip!
We just back from a 2 weeks trip to Thailand organized by Leon and Helen from Indochina tour and were very happy with the tour. The trip was good from the sight seeing, transportation to the accommodations and lunches. All the hotels are beautiful, staff are nice, breakfasts are plenty with varieties except the Chiang Mai Express where its breakfast was mediocre. We had a very good time without worrying about planning where to go as well as transportations.

Wonderful Trip!
We just returned from "27 Days in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand Classic Tour with River Cruise". This was a wonderful experience! We were quite anxious about booking travel with a company half-way across the world, but Indochina Tours exceeded our expectations. Sreypov and Kea were our tour agents. We have never booked via email, without actually talking to an agent before, but they were both very helpful!

One of Our Best Trips Ever!
We were going to book with Indochina Tours when Covid hit. Everything shut down. After Covid we picked up our plans with Indochina Tours in 2022 and booked for January and Feb of 2024. We visited three countries with two boat cruise included. The tour was 27 days and during the trip every single step of the way we were met by our guides in a most timely fashion.

Amazing Trip!
We loved the trip. We initially had some interpretation because of the unknown. We had never been to Asia. However it was fabulous. Infochina Tours gave us everything they promised. The experience of totally different cultures and the food was amazing. Good guides and hotels. We picked 4 star hotels. I would highly recommend IndoCina Tours.

A Great Trip!
We just completed our trip through northern Thailand and Laos, organized by Indochina Tour. We appreciated the whole process, their proposals, the excellent communication, and the execution on the ground. The guides were very knowledgeable and helpful, the drivers were safe and attentive. All the hotels were good, and we enjoyed the excursions and local activities. Through personal contact we learned a lot about the countries and about their personal life.
