This was my first time using a tour company outside of the U.S., for a two-week trip to Thailand and Laos, and everything went perfectly! I was very impressed with their hotel selections and the tour guides that they provided. The command of English was very good, the guides were flexible and accommodating. The ease of changing the itinerary, along the way, and feeling like a "VIP", made the trip even better! Thank you Indochina Tour! I will definitely recommend your company and use you in my future plans!
