17-day visit to Vietnam with Asia Pioneer Travel (APT)

My wife and I just returned from a wonderful first-time trip to Vietnam – thanks to the quality service provided by APT. So many things went well for us. We were able to customize the default itinerary to fit our schedule and sightseeing preferences. We spent a few initial days corresponding via email, phone and WhatsApp with our assigned Travel Designer (Elly), and she answered all of our questions and addressed any concerns we had. She also helped us obtain our e-Visas and purchased domestic airline tickets for us. The hotels provided were excellent – good locations, clean and comfortable rooms, friendly and helpful staff and nice amenities. The hotels also provided very tasty and substantial buffet breakfasts through a wide variety of foods and beverages. What also stood out were the outstanding local guides that accompanied us in HCM City, Hoi An/Hue, Hanoi and Sapa. The guides were professional, friendly and knowledgeable regarding the area history and culture. We learned so much from the guides and they really enhanced our travel experience. They also led us to some great restaurants where we enjoyed the local cuisine. Also, all of the drivers provided were highly skilled and always on-time for pickups. And on top of having an enjoyable trip, we felt the trip cost was very reasonable and affordable. We are so glad we went with APT!

Wonderful 3.5 weeks in SE Asia

My adult daughter (age 25) and I worked with Lizzie at Asia Pioneer Travel to plan a 3.5 week trip to Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia. We travelled as a pair for the first 2 weeks, then I continued on my own for another 1.5 weeks. Everything was fantastic! Every hotel was great and all flights and airport transfers were meticulously planned. But the best part were the guides and activities. We opted for private guides and they were all knowledgeable, fun and easy to talk to. We learned so much from them. We also enjoyed all the boat rides, tours, cooking classes, etc that Lizzie planned for us. Given all of that, Lizzie also respected our request for free time and helped us find some of that too! I highly recommend Lizzie and her team.
