Reviews on Our Service

Epic 30 days North to South Vietnam

Chlie hit it out of the park on our 30 days Nieth to South Vietnam. Went with my daughter and friend. Being born during the war and half Vietnamese, I wanted my daughter to see the land where it all started. 25 different locations with 14, five star hotels along with private boat tours and 3 days on Enperor Cruises Halong Bay. You cant get more upscale than that. The guides in each region/ location were awesome and knew their stuff. All were consummate professionals ensuring we were comfortable. Tony, Sy, Mr. One, Vinh, Thuy, Tom and Joe exceeded our expectations in knowledge, friendliness and went beyond to see that we were happy with everything. Two of the guides hold our hearts, Vinh and Tom, if I could have, I would have smuggled them home in my suitcase. My daughter and I met family we never knew we had in Ben Tre and Buen Hoa, I got to see the school I went to and the home I grew up in before coming to the States when my dad ended his last tour. Thank you to Chloe and her team. I will be back, next time with my husband.

Amazing spring break to Vietnam

This was our first time using a travel agent to travel to another country. Stella made this process so easy that I’m not sure I’ll ever want to do it myself again. The process of figuring out our itinerary was pretty simple. She came up with an itinerary, we edited it a couple of times, and then we had a final plan. I even asked for a few changes the week before and she was able to change things up for us. No problem. During the trip, Stella and the guides were really responsive to our needs and helped us out more than I could have thought. We got a upgrade on a room and even extended our stay in the hotel due to sickness on our last day with no extra charge to us. I would recommend booking a trip with Stella to any of my friends ! And I might actually do it again myself.

Thailand , Cambodia and Vietnam

We had a wonderful time on the 3 weeks spent in Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand . Chloe was our travel specialist. She did amazing job planning so that we experienced the many flavors of each country. All our guides were wonderful and the street food tours were amazing . We really recommend the Vespa evening foodie tour in Saigon, it was as advertised, one of the best ever lifetime experiences !!! The food was endless and we experienced all the street food with no issues. The accommodations were great and we loved ending the trip to relax in Krabi . Thank you Asian Pioneer Travel and Chloe , you made us a memory and experience we will not forget .

Fabulous spring break vacation

After speaking with two other family friends, we booked our vacation through Chloe and it was one of the best trips we have been on. We spent 10 days traveling from Siem Reap, Cambodia to Hoi An, Halong Bay and Hanoi, Vietnam. As a family of 5 (Kids ages 8,5, &3) it is hard to find accommodations and activities that meet the needs of all family members. However everyone came back happy campers. We loved every activity and all the food was wonderful. We saw temples, rode bikes, explored downtowns and went kayaking. Hands down worth every penny.
