Stress-Free Travel Planning and VIP Treatment

This was my first ever travel agency experience and it was fantastic. We took 2 weeks and saw Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos. I bought the tickets to and from our location and Elly did the rest (including buying tickets in between the countries and getting E-visas). Everything was top-notch and it was great to have a private guide and transportation everywhere we went. The guides imparted so much knowledge and took care of us like we were family. This is the easiest way to vacation and we felt like VIPs! We elected for 4-star lodging and they were all INCREDIBLE. In fact, we loved it so much that we used their services again in the spring. Thanks to Elly and the team at Asia Pioneer Travel for a stress-free trip of a lifetime.

Asia Pioneer is the Best for Personalized Travel

We had the most amazing family vacation in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Singapore. Stella, our tour manager, was absolutely fantastic. She planned the perfect holiday with a nice balance of culture, adventure, and down time. This is our 2nd time using Asia Pioneer (we went to Thailand in 2018) and they do not disappoint. I have recommended them to all of our friends and family. We loved SE Asia and will be returning – Asian Pioneer will definitely be planning our next trip there.

Wonderful trip and planner!

Our trip was beyond wonderful! It was a short 7-day trip, but we packed it in with activities and experiences! We stayed at the most amazing hotels and took the most interesting tours. Stella, our travel specialist at Asia Pioneer, was simply the best! I can’t thank her enough and I highly recommend her. She was very responsive and receptive to our questions and requests and really worked to make our plans perfect. Some of our favorite activities were the Vespa tour in Saigon, the street food tour in Hanoi, the Cu Chi Tunnel tour and, of course, the relaxing cruise in Ha Long Bay.
