Fantastic Trip to Vietnam and Cambodia

We have just returned from a wonderful private tour of Vietnam and Cambodia arranged by Linda and her team at Threeland Travel. They were recommended to us by friends and they were fantastic!! Our itinerary, flights, hotels and many meals were all arranged by them all by e mail and the whole trip could not have gone better. We visited Hanoi, Hue, Ho-ian, Ho Chi Minh City, Phom Penh and Siem Riep. At each destination we were met by helpful and knowledgeable guides and drivers so the whole trip was stress free. The hotels and meals were excellent. We visited incredible places and have returned with wonderful memories. Thank you so much Threeland travel.

  • Best Vietnam Cambodia John M

Best Vietnam Cambodia

In researching our upcoming holiday to Vietnam/Cambodia we were recommended to contact Threeland Travel as they could arrange a private group tour - we weren't interested in joining a large organised tour group. Our contact Linda, following input from us as to where/what we wanted to do put together numerous draft itineraries until we decided on the final tour. Linda was so helpful & accommodating & gave valuable advice throughout. She arranged a private tour for 4 - our own guide, bus & driver for each area we went to. We were amazed at the level of service as well as the quality of the service we received from each guide/bus driver. They looked after us as though we were their family. There were times when we wanted to change our itinerary as we went on our travels - no problem to do this - the unexpected does happen such as illness, too tired, just want to relax. We traveled throughout Vietnam then the Mekong River cruise into Cambodia - not one hitch. Our guides even assisted us to check in for each internal flight. A level of service we didn't expect. We stayed 5 star the whole journey as the prices provided to us by Linda made it an affordable option. We have since priced similar organized tours to the same areas & the pricing has been double for most tours. We couldn't believe what we got for the price we paid. We had the most amazing holiday at nothing but the best accommodation with exceptional guides & drivers in very good small buses with air conditioning & plenty of bottled water. All we had to do was have a great time, shop & enjoy all the Vietnam & Cambodia had to offer. With a small group tour we missed the problems that come with a large tour - we encountered one such tour on the Mekong River Cruise - and so pleased that we went with Threeland travel. Thank you Linda & all involved in making our recent holiday one to remember. We are definitely going through them again to explore this fascinating area more thoroughly. Highly recommend them.

  • Tour of Vietnam and Cambodia Sailesh D

Tour of Vietnam and Cambodia

Our trip was organised by Threeland Travel and all by email. Our party was made up of two couples. Everything was organised by this company from booking all the internal flights to all the hotels and all the transport and sightseeing. Also the restaurants were booked by them on our request as we asked for vegetarian meals. They did all these perfectly and we did not have a single problem with the whole of the tour as it was perfect from pick up from airport to next destination. We also had a night on the Junk Boat on the Halong Bay and the services of Grayline Cruise was a Five Star service by them. Must mention the hotels  all these chosen by Threeland were excellent. Indian Restaurants were Ganesh Restaurant who has branches all over Vietnam and others were Little India in Hanoi. All these was organised by Alex at Threeland Travels who are based in Hanoi. Highly recommended for people who want to travel to Vietnam and Cambodia.

  • Perfect trip to Vietnam & Cambodia Klaus D

Perfect trip to Vietnam & Cambodia

Threeland Travel organised a private 14 trip for me in Vietnam & Cambodia (Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hue, Hoi An, Saigon, Siem Reap). I found Threeland over the internet and was guided by very positive reviews of other travellers in this forum. Albeit a bit nervous about sending a down payment (50% of local trip costs) to an unknown agency, I must admit that I was not disappointed anywhere. Threeland operators Alex and Mia of the Hanoi office diligently planned the trip, responded quickly to all my many queries beforehand and organised a visa on arrival for me. Upon arrival I was greeted at every airport by very friendly and knowledgeable private guides and very careful drivers. The guides are very knowledgeable about the history of the nation and the places visited, but I enjoyed particularly learning more about the present life of residents in discussing with them. All **** hotels selected were more than adequate and centrally located and all preselected meals were in very nice restaurants offering a plentiful variety of local foods. I have really nothing to complain about and can recommend Threeland to any traveller to organise a trip to Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos or Myanmar. If I go again to this part of the world, I would for sure entrust Threeland Travel to organise my local trip. My only advise to travellers interested in going to Vietnam would be not to try combining North and South Vietnam in one trip due to very different climate zones. I did so, but in March Hanoi and Halong Bay were still too cold and rainy to truly enjoy the beauty of it. For the North July & August are best months, for the South November and December- then temperatures are only in the mid 20 degeee celsius range. Hoi An in the center is touristy but a very pleasant place, also offering travellers a choice to spend a few days to rest on the beautiful beach. Saigon is a vibrant metropolitan city worth spending 3 days but do not go to the Mekong delta unless you spend time over there overnight (only then you can see the floating markets). Angkor Wat is definitely worth seeing, but 2-3 days are fully sufficient there - you will see any how so many temples during your trip that you will hardly be able to remember all of them !

Vietnam/Cambodia Tour

I would like to thank you on behalf of all of us for arranging a wonderful tour, and we are more than satisfied with your services. Everything went very smoothly. We were met on time by the guides and drivers. All the hotels you recommended were excellent, very clean, with friendly staff, more than pleased. Both to boat trips you recommended and arranged were brilliant. It’s a pity we weren’t able to have a longer holiday as we would have liked to have stayed longer at some of the places we visited which were so interesting. As you know your company was recommended to us by relatives, who were happy with your services, and we too would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone looking to go on an Indochina trip.
