We had great day tour to Ba Be lake with this company. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. A long way to get there on their comfortable car. The road was snaky but we had great views on the way. Great trekking routes, and boat tour on the boat was amazing. Highly recommend !

My husband and I booked a day trip to the Red River Delta/Ninh Binh at the last minute after noticing the Ethnic Travel office in Hanoi. The trip far exceeded the description. We had pretty rainy weather, but that didn't stop us from mountain biking around some of the most magical scenery I've ever seen. I actually kind of enjoyed... More

We chose Ethnic travels and the 3day/2 night Halong Bay and Bai Tu Long Bay trip because (1) we wanted to support a Vietnamese company and get to know more about local Vietnamese culture (2) we wanted a clean boat for a mid range price, and also wanted to explore the bays with other tourists (not have a private tour...

My husband and I did the three day/two night trip to Halong Bay and Bai Tu Long Bay. Halong was beautiful but very crowded on our way in. Our tour took us to a more secluded area in the bay so that you didn't feel surrounded by other boats and we went kayaking around the cliffs. The food was AMAZING... More

We did the 3-day Ha Long bay/Bai Tu Long bay cruise. We were very glad we did the Bai Tu Long bay extension, since Ha Long was so crowded. This cruise only had 11 people, though, and it seemed very intimate. Somehow, Ethnic found a small bay that was perfect for the 1st night,and it was only our cruise boat... More

My husband and I did the three day/two night trip to Bai Tu Long Bay and our guide was Lyly. She is knowledgeable, fluent in English and went out of her way to create a personal experience. As others have said, this is not luxury, but it was perfect for us. Other couples were from Berlin, London and Switzerland and... More
