Asia Eyes Travel has organized the best trip for us. They understood what we wanted and tailored the trip to our needs. They organized for us all type of transportations including train and motocycle and they indicated us the best routes. All their recomendations were GREAT!!! we had an excellent trekking in Sapa, a wonderful night at a Homong homestay and a ossome Halong Bay cruise. The quality of the Hotels was incredible and at the best rates!!!! All in between transportation were perfectly organized. Moreover, Asia Eyes was very flexible during the trip when we wanted to do more activities. The communication with them has been very friendly. If you are planning a trip to Asia they are your BEST CHOICE.Check other reviews about Asia Eyes Travel
My wife and I spent 14 days visiting Myanmar, Vietnam, and Cambodia in February/March 2017. We worked with Thuy Le at Asia Eyes Travel to develop a schedule so we could see the points of interest we wanted. Our plans changed several times and Thuy Le was quick to make the required modifications. All of the guides and the drivers we had were excellent. We were able to enjoy the sites we wanted and learned much more than we had planned. The experienced guides would make small changes in our schedule to avoid large groups of tourists each day which allowed us more time to see the wonderful sites without feeling rushed.
We would certainly recommend Thuy Le and Asia Eyes Travel if you plan to travel to this part of the world. Great service is their middle name!!!Check other reviews about Asia Eyes Travel
Thank you Katie Phuong of Asia Eyes Travel for putting together a fun-filled 2 week holiday for 2 couples! We told her that our interests were in cooking classes and learning about the food culture and places that we wanted to visit. Katie created an interesting itinerary based on our needs and interests and even suggested places of interest that we had not considered. All the big and small details were taken care of including private drivers, English speaking tour guides, hotels, interesting tours and cooking classes. Our favorite experiences were the road trips to and from Halong Bay, Paloma Cruise in Halong Bay, Motorbike Hanoi Street Food Tour, having clothes and shoes made in Hoi An, exploring Hoi An and surrounding areas on rented motorbikes, and Cai Be on the Mekong River. Katie remained in contact with us throughout the trip to ensure that we were safe and enjoying ourselves. I would highly recommend this travel company if you are looking to explore beautiful Vietnam and neighboring countries, We will certainly use Katie again when we return to Asia!Check other reviews about Asia Eyes Travel
We were a group of four who wanted to visit Vietnam, but didn’t want the large tour experience (big buses, waiting for other people, generic tour visits) We had a few specific things we wanted to see, but also wanted the expert knowledge of someone who lived there.
Asia Eyes tour fit the bill perfectly. What we really appreciated with them? We had six airports in total on our trip, and never had to worry about transfers. There was always a driver in a large air conditioned van waiting for us. Whenever there was a multi-leg (going into one city and then another, we had the same driver, Phoc, who was great, had a wonderful sense of humor and was a great driver! Of course in other towns, we had great drivers as well.
We had private tours with tour guides who were knowledgeable and friendly. They showed us THEIR Vietnam, with their voice.
We were specific with Katie Phong about what we were looking for in hotels, and she found us some real gems. I know that she did for us what no online service could have done. When you are booking a hotel online, in most cases, you don’t know where the hotel is in relation to the city. We had great hotels, every time – all four star, as we indicated, but in some cases the hotel was so beautiful (like the Eldora in Hue, or the Harmony in HCMC) that would have been a five star anywhere else. We never would have thought about staying at the Mekong Lodge, and it ended up being a highlight of the trip.
Katie took all the guesswork and worry out of the travel experience, and allowed us to have a trip that was perfectly timed with busy city life, and then relaxing country (Mekong Lodge) and water (Paloma ship in Halong Bay). We had some great cooking class experiences (especially the Red River Cooking class in Hoi An), and some foodie bike tours in Han oi (our favorite bike tour)
There’s no way we could have created a beautiful holiday like this on our own. I completely recommend Asia Eyes Tours. You just give them your dates, where you want to go, your likes and dislikes, and let them do the rest. In our case, we wanted a culinary and cultural tour, and we got it!
We had planned to visit Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand in February-March 2017 from the UK. We had difficulties in arranging a holiday as we are a mature couple and wanted to spend a month away from the cold in the UK with booking our own flights. Searching the Internet we came across Asia Eyes Travel with a holiday that seemed to suit our needs. However we wanted to take advantage of the 15 day Visa ruling from the UK to visit Vietnam. The holiday after many changes was suitable with all transfers, rail journeys and flights all booked through Hanoi. We had a young lady called Katie Phuong to arrange the holiday who we finally met in Hanoi. The holiday went exceptionally well throughout and she kept in contact during the time we were away.
It seems strange that a well travelled mature couple from the UK should book a holiday through a travel agent in Hanoi, however all went so well. The guides, drivers throughout were excellent and at the end we felt that more established countries could learn a lot from the organisation in Vietnam.
A great place to go and it opened our eyes to Vietnam, just seeing the fresh food in the markets and in the countryside was worthwhile.
We loved our holiday and Asia Eyes Travel did us proud
Katie designed a perfect private tour for a small group from our cruise Ship! The caves were magnificent and the scenery spectacular! Lunch onboard our private boat was a great spread.
Thank you Katie.
Booked this trip online from the UK. It was a fair price and from initial enquiry everything about this company and their staff was excellent! We received detailed instructions on where to meet (we were on a cruise ship) and everything about the trip ran like clockwork and was exactly as advertised – but better! Food on the boat was amazing too. Would definately recommend this company and trip.Check other reviews about Asia Eyes Travel
We were a private group of 9 people taking a 2-week tour trip from Ha Noi to HCM city. Thuy was so attentive at all times to our trip details from the beginning which was more than 6 months before we started. Phuong was also very helpful. We had a couple of issues during our trip but they were quickly fixed. Ha Long bay cruise was the highlight. SaPa was fun but the weather was not cooperative as it rained 2 out of 3 days we were there, but it was not the fault of AET. Da Nang was beautiful, definitely will come back. I do think the communication needs to be better with the tour people in HCM city as we were there for 5 days but they did not seem to know who will take care of us the next days. I surely will recommend Asia Eyes Travel.Check other reviews about Asia Eyes Travel
A must! ride on the back of a Vespa through Hanoi’s bustling streets and get a real feel for the city while seeing the important cites. All female drivers. Had Ling as our guide incredible experience. Had coffee at a local brewhouse and an incredible lunch of local food. Can’t say enough about good a time we had.Check other reviews about Asia Eyes Travel

An amazing experience on the Paloma motorbike tour in Hanoi and Paloma cruise in Halong bay with Asia Eyes Travel. I would like to thank you very much and recommend everyone to have this experience. What a fabulous trip!Check other reviews about Asia Eyes Travel
We had the pleasure of a nine day trip from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City, booked through Asia Eyes, Phuong Katie arranged our trip for us and I would highly recommend her and the company, every detail was attended to professionally.
We had our own English speaking tour guide and driver in every city. Highlight definitely Halong Bay cruise, but everywhere we went was enjoyable, the itinerary is excellent, would certainly book with this company again.
Wonderful experience. Great food, friendly and helpful staff, interesting daily activities, great facilities, amazing views…
We had booked three days two nights tour and it was excellent! Definitely worth going!
I was also part of the Celebrity group and this may have the most relaxing and purely enjoyable excursion of our trip. Beautiful scenery, lovely lunch, friendly staff.
While I would love to rate it 5 stars, there were a couple of issues which detracted from the experience for me. I had a hard time getting in and out of the boats; the staff and other passengers were helpful with a boost, but I think a portable step would have made the transitions more manageable. The sales pitches were also a distraction.
The parting gifts were a lovely gesture and a very nice ending to a wonderful day.
The ship, Anna, the crew and service were excellent. They tried very hard to please us all: and succeeded! Our 2nd floor balcony room was nice: lots of wood, nice linens and remodeled bathroom. We were continually fed good food, and the tours of the fishing village and cave were interesting. We also enjoyed the company of the other passengers. It’s a small boat so we got to know some people well.
We had a couples massage which was outstanding and very inexpensive. Another highlight was doing Tai Chi on the open deck in the early morning. It was a spiritual experience drifting on the misty bay with no other boat in sight. I initially had some safety concerns of these “junk” boats, but the Aphrodite had all the safety equipment and was a safe vessel to be on.
Ms Katie at Asia Eyes was very professional, answered all my early questions and delivered on all she promised. We highly recommend the overnight cruise on the Aphrodite.Check other reviews about Asia Eyes Travel
I was very fortunate to be part of a group who had booked a trip around Halong Bay on arrival of our Celebrity Cruise. We were met by our guide Nam (who spoke good English) from the tender of our ship.
What went well
We were met on time and our guide Nam spoke good English
We were advised where we were going and how long journeys would take
Coach driver was very safe
All small boats were organised and Nam took care of the tips
He advised us of any uneven surfaces and steps in caves and gave health and safety warnings and organised tickets
We were given ample time in all places
He managed the timing so we missed large groups of tourists
He pointed out photo opportunites and gave local information
A wonderful lunch was served on board – any allergies had been pre warned
The whole day went very smoothly and he even gave everyone a small gift at the end of the trip
Our itinerary was as follows:
Collection from tender and driven to Bai Chang Harbour by coach
Our boat headed towards fishing village of Ba Heng where small bamboo boats had been arranged for us rowed by local people – this was fun
We then sailed to Sung Sot Cave (Surprising Cave) where there were about 170 steps to negotiate – this visit was timed to miss the big groups so we were able to see it with very few people there
A wonderful feast (lunch) was then served to us on the boat
We then sailed towards Titov Island where some of our group remained on the beach to relax while others climed the 400 steps to the top to see the views – ample time was allowed for this
We then sailed to Luon Cave where again we had a choice of kayaking or taking a bamboo boat through the cave and we saw families of monkeys on the mountains – wonderful and peaceful.
We really can’t think of anything bad to say about this and nothing went wrong. Wonderful guide, safe driver and fantastic itiinerary. Would definitely highly recommend using Asia Eyes Travel who kept in contact with us by email before the trip. We would use again if we go back to this area.Check other reviews about Asia Eyes Travel
