Me and my partner took an 8 days private photography tour (Hanoi-Duong Lam-Nghia Lo-Mu Cang Chai-Than Uyen-Y Ty-Hanoi-Halong Bay-Hanoi) to northwest of Vietnam with Indochina Charm Travel and we can say it is a truly remarkable eye opener trip giving us the best authentic experience we can ever wish for.

We book and had our trip guided by Mr. Yang himself, everything is perfectly organized. Starting off with a good suggestion of itinerary, we were we able to experience the real vietnam culture, the daily life and activities of the vietnamese people.

A Big thank you to Mr. Yang. Guiding us throughout the entire trip, he made us feel safe even when we venture into remote private place and shooting the locals. Doing what he do best, He knows every bit and pieces of all the places. I can say there is nothing that we have missed. Not to mention all the good spot for photography, i can say we have been there on our trip. His commitment in providing the best service is second to none. We have had thunderstorm, flows of muddy water, slippery rocky track, flooded and blocked road. But all those didnt stop him from providing the best service to us.

The time and pacing for each activities and stops is very well planned. We have all the time we need to shoot and yet we did not miss any of the planned itinerary. And on the same time we still manage to absorb the feeling of being part of the locals, enjoying to scenery and environment.

The travelling from one location to another i can say its an itinerary by itself. From manuevering the traffic in Old Quarter to scenic paddy field in Mu Cang Chai to the amazing mountain pass of KhauPa to passing all the mountainous villages in Y Ty seeing the local tribes harvesting their crops to seeing the border of China just opposite a river, it is a memorable journey.

With a foodie tour being incorporate into the itinerary, we had the chance to experience some of the famous the local delicacy. From famous local bun cha in town to home hosted lunch in an ancient house in an ancient village to backstreet alley home made Banh Cuon to dinner in the cave, there is nothing short of a remarkable food treat.

The choice of hotel made is good. Each hotel is clean and comfortable. We are able to have a good rest every single night.

Hats off to Mr. Bing too the driver for entire trip for keeping us safe and relaxed. Very good pace driving around and it didnt feel as if we are rushing from one place to another or we are dangerously out maneureving the traffic.

If you are looking for a great photography tour, wanted an authentic vietnam experience, have some adventure in your trip cycling around local villages, hiking to see some of the best view, visiting some remote villages, kayaking around limestone island, having some great food, and most important, doing all this safely,relaxed and enjoyable, indochina charm is the place to look for

Everything about our recent 5 day trip to Vietnam was absolutely perfect. Ms Phrong from Indochina Charm (Vietnam Seaplane Tours) was helpful and offered great suggestions on where to stay in Hanoi, and which Ha Long Bay cruise ship would be the best for our family of two adults and two boys aged 10 and 8.

The hotels in Hanoi were centrally located and had great amenities, our driver was careful and skilfully got us in and out of Hanoi old quarter in record time. The Seaplane flight to Ha Long and back was amazing (can't recommend that enough btw. Splurge on it if you can!) The cruise on the Dragon Pearl II was amazing with some of the best food we have ever eaten.

All in all, we couldn't have asked for a better time. Thank you Ms Phrong and Indochina Charm. We'll definitely be back!

Reliable company, good city guides, good choice of hotels. I loved the various activities and visits made, the food was delicious and the Vietnamese people are delightful. The country is developping fast and people are full of life and hope. It was an eye openner. Very educational and inspirational. Would recommend it also for young children. Safe country.

They say a picture's worth a thousand words but with the right tour guide every picture becomes a a fascinating story. Dang Vu is that tour guide. In all our years of travel we have never experienced the level of professionalism, knowledge, attention to detail & friendliness displayed by Dang. He called us his "family" & that's exactly how we felt. From push bike riding along the Mekong Delta, sampling delicious street food, revitalising mud baths, kayaking to our private beach, candlelight cave dining, visiting royal palaces, to a special home cooked meal in a local's home. Experiencing Vietnam through Indochina Charm Travel hosted by Dang Vu was journey beyond our wildest expectations. Place your trust in this company & they will provide you with a holiday you will never forget. Thank you Dang & Indochina Charm Travel.

Was given glowing referral by a friend to our guide Dang Vu, and the Indochina Charm Travel company. Having just completed our holiday I understand the glowing reference. Travelled with a group of 12 friends and were lucky enough to have a private tour with Dang accompanying us throughout the trip. Dang assisted from the very beginning, with planning our itinerary, through to delivery. As he stated on several occasions, his whole aim is to ensure his clients are satisfied, and as a result nothing was too much trouble. He was flexible, enabling us to change our itinerary on those occasions we wanted to, and also proactive in making small changes or additions based on his observation of the groups interests. Dang has an amazing knowledge of Vietnam and it's history, which he shared throughout the trip. Everything went smoothly, all accommodation and travel bookings going to plan. In Halong Bay , where we spent two nights on a junk, our group had dinner in a cave fully set up for dining, an amazing experience only available to clients of Indochina Charm. This was just one highlight of many. Have no hesitation in recommending Indochina Charm and Dang Vu to anyone considering a trip to Vietnam. Hint: There's a lot to see, it is hot, so try and build some free time in to your itinerary so you can recharge every now and then by the pool!
