Wonderful Cambodia – our sincere thank you to Tonkin Travel In April 2022 my husband and I (along with 2 close friends) entrusted our first post Covid holiday to Tonkin Travel. We used Tonkin Travel in 2016 for our 3 week Vietnam holiday and were very happy to again entrust our holiday to them. What a wonderful experience Tonkin delivered us. We spent 3 weeks visiting Phnom Penh, Kompong Cham, Kratie, Koh Trong, Siem Reap, Angkor Wat, Battambang, Kampot and Koh Rong. We experienced Cambodia from many perspectives by riding bikes through villages, exploring the countryside on quad bikes, kayaking along rivers, travelling to remote areas on traditional fishing boats and taking long walks through ancient ruins. We visited Angkor Wat in Tuk Tuks and travelled on an old Bamboo train cart through rice fields. Each evening we walked the streets, visited local markets and enjoyed the variety of fresh ‘street food’ on offer. Our Tonkin Travel guide and driver were open to our suggestions and accommodated any late minute changes to our program. They assisted us with any minor challenges including booking restaurants, flight coordination, visiting shops and currency conversions. Our car was fitted with a cold esky with an unlimited supply of cold water. We always felt safe and able to interact with the communities we visited. Tonkin delivered us a culturally rich and rewarding experience in Cambodia. Thank you to Phuong and the Tonkin Travel Team for helping make our Cambodian Travel a true adventure.

We had a 16night tour organised by Tonkin Travel, everything was top notch and I couldn’t recommend them highly enough. Shout out to Nga who was our bright light when covid 19 started to affect our holiday. Nga kept in touch daily with advice and kept our confidence up throughout our travels. Even contacting us in the UK to make sure we got home safely! ☺️

We travelled with Tonkin Travel in 2015 and had such a wonderful time that we decided to use them again this year. Phuong was so helpful with developing an exciting itinerary for our trip in 2020 (and in 2015!) and we were very much looking forward to travelling to Vietnam again. Unfortunately, I became unwell and we were not able to travel. As we cancelled very close to our departure date I was concerned about getting any refund. I shouldn't have been! Tonkin Travel worked hard to get us almost a full refund - there were some cancellation fees we had to pay but they were minimal. I can only say how wonderful Tonkin Travel is and we will definitely be using them again when next we travel to Vietnam.

We booked with Tonkin Travel after reading other reviews on Tripadvisor. We wanted to go to Vietnam reasonably independently, but with local back-up and guides. We corresponded initially with Huong and Quang, and agreed an itinerary and some suggestions for tours, but with many free days so we could explore on our own. The price was extremely reasonable and the final plan incorporated all our preferences. We booked our own flights to Vietnam but Tonkin took care of hotel bookings, internal flights, transfers, guides and some meals. We finally arrived in Hanoi at dawn on 17th February and we weren't disappointed! Tonkin met us at Hanoi Airport, took us to the hotel and helped us check in. We had a full day tour of Hanoi the following day, and our guide Trang was excellent. The following day we had a brilliant excusion to Ninh Binh (including a boat tour). Tonkin also organised our Ha Long Bay trip - not to be missed, but to be honest it is pretty touristy and for us wasn't a highlight of the trip. We went on to Hue (where we had another brilliant guide, Ngai) and Hoi An, which was wonderful for relaxation and where we had some clothes made to measure at Blue (Ms Tam Tam). We also did a fantastic Countryside Tour involving an outing on a fishing boat! All the drivers were great, and special thanks to our Hanoi driver who also took us to Halong Bay. We hope to return to Vietnam and will definitely book through Tonkin Travel when we do.

We are a family of 4 (with boys ages 4 and 8) and booked a week-long trip round Vietnam with Tonkin Travel having been recommended them by two sets of friends. We were not disappointed. Mr Quan worked with our itinerary requirements, suggested suitable adjustments and booked us into some amazing hotels. We requested English-speaking guides for each new destination along the journey and we were provided with some very knowledgeable and very friendly people. We requested transport pickups and drop offs, booked our tours through them and everything worked like a well-oiled machine. It was the best and easiest holiday we have had in a while. For the Halong Bay cruise, Quan recommended Bai Tu Long and Athena Royal Cruises. Bai Tu Long is a less touristy part of Halong Bay and although there were other boats nearby we were able to enjoy views of the gorgeous scenery without any other boats in the way. Food on board was excellent. Service was excellent. It truly was an amazing holiday and Tonkin Travel are great travel agents.
