Incredible Thailand Vacation

Exotic Voyages was everything we had hoped for and more! Everything went perfectly on our trip, each item on our itinerary was incredible, and we couldn’t have asked for a better-designed trip! They were always there 24/7 to answer any questions we had. Exotic Voyages made this vacation the best one we’ve ever had!

Trip to vietnam, Vietnam – Jan 5 – Jan 13, 2018

Traveler: Katie M. – Local specialist: Andy Carroll
Thank you, thank you and thank you again Andy for putting together such an exhilaratingly wonderful itinerary for me in Vietnam !! I loved the way you listened to what I was interested in when we chatted and texted several times beforehand because you really knocked it out of the park for me with everywhere I went !! Each place and all accommodations from the tropical feel of my hotel in the colorful and ancient city of Hoi An, to the gorgeous hotel in the significantly historical city of Hue, then up to Hanoi and my adorable boutique hotel, with an outstanding 2 day side trip out onto HaLong Bay staying overnight on a lovely classy boat, then all the way down to Phu Quoc island only to stay in the magnificent eco friendly resort of Mango Bay and then wrapping it all up in Saigon … well it was simply just superb !! I loved all of my guides and especially have such fond memories of Mr. Troung and his driver who schooled me with emotional sights and many unknown historical facts of the war.

One of my most fun days was deciding to ditch a couple museums and hop on the back of the scooter of my guide in Hanoi and ride with the masses of those who miraculously and artfully flow through the city streets of organized chaos. It was tremendously exhilarating !! \

I do not typically return to places I’ve already traveled to for the sole reason that our world is so big and I want to see it all, but I most definitely would return to Vietnam, travel throughout more of the country and hope for more beautiful encounters with it’s warm and loving people … but only if Andy was in charge of making it happen for me !!!

20th Anniversary Trip to Thailand

We worked with Exotic Voyages to plan 2 terrific weeks in Thailand. They crafted a terrific itinerary for us and our guides and drivers all did a stellar job.

Exotic Voyages Does It Again !!!!!!

My wife, myself and two good traveling companions just returned from a whirlwind tour of Vietnam, set up by our favorite travel agent Mai Phuong, at Exotic Voyages.

This was the second trip that Mai Phuong put together for us, our first being Myanmar about four years ago. (You can find a review for that trip under my tripadvisor username).

When I tell you that everything went as planned, I mean everything. Every guide, driver, hotel, and tour went as advertised. Our guides were great, especially (sorry for the spelling) ‘Wang’ in HCM City & ‘Hung’ in Hanoi, Sa Pa and Ha Long Bay. Professional, courteous, informative, friendly – you get the idea.

Our itinerary started with 2 nites in HCM City, 3 in Hoi An (one of our favorites), 2 in Hue, and then a mad dash, Hanoi, overnite train to Sa Pa, 2 nites in Sa Pa, overnite train back to Hanoi, incredible evening on a gorgeous boat in Ha Long Bay (also a favorite) and finally one more nite in Hanoi.

If I were to do it again, with the same number of days, I’d probably knock off Hue and add one more day to Hoi An and one more day aboard the boat in Ha Long Bay.

We had the wonderful opportunity to meet Mai Phuong, in Hanoi, for dinner. It was a great evening with her.

I can’t recommend Mai Phuong and Exotic Voyages enough. We’ll be calling on Mai Phuong next year to put together a short tour of Laos for my wife.

Call Exotic Voyages for your South East Asia custom vacation – you will not be disappointed.

Wonderful tour organizer for personalized tour

We looked into several tour organizers for our visit to Thailand and Myanmar. Exotic Voyages was first and best and most detailed in their response. They asked a few questions and then got to work to put together a wonderful itinerary. Each of their guides and drivers was top notch. Not one took us to a tourist trap and each was professional and warm.
We did ask for rooms with views and this was one failing, but really the only one and only in a couple of cases. They were detailed, professional, and responsive in the same day (given time differences). They listened carefully and planned accordingly. They were up front on all prices and there were no hidden fees. We didn’t pay an extra penny for anything they arranged.

One driver failed to meet us at an airport and they were on it before we emailed them with alternative instructions. It is an amazing world when a travel company based in Hanoi outdoes services from Great Britain or the U.S.,, but they do.

Some highlights were the visit to the elephant sanctuary and the day spent cooking with a Thai family.

Anniversary trip to Thailand

My husband and I just completed an amazing trip to Bangkok, Chaing Mai, and Phuket, Thailand.

My husband and I travel 4-5 times per year and have been to many beautiful places, usually arranging our own travel through local travel agencies however, we decided to use Exotic voyages for this trip and we couldn’t have made a better decision.

Upon arrival into the country, we were greeted and fast tracked through customs and our driver was waiting.

Hotel choices, 4 and 5 star accomodations, were excellent as were the excursions the were recommended. We even received a room upgrade in Phuket to a junior suite with the most spectacular 180 degree ocean view and our room was steps from the beach.

Our regional flights were booked for us and we were upgraded to first class on one of the regional flights.

My only suggestion would be that EV book international flights as well. I made an error in booking dates due to overnight travel and plus 1 or plus 2 days which ended up making us lose a day in country and resulted in additional charges to rebook our regional flights. Other travel agencies automatically book all flights, both international and regional, and since they do this all the time, I’m certain they are much better than I am at making sure all the dates and times coincide.

Other than that, I would highly recommend EV as a luxery travel agency. The service I received from hotel transfers, to english speaking guides who offered to take photos for us, to the regional travel, to the accomodations and excursions, they made for us were top notch and perfectly suited and individualized for our particular desires.

Great job Exotic Voyages. We will certainly book again.

ABSOLUTELY THE BEST TRIP EVER!!!!!!!!!

My husband and I just got back from a trip to Northern Thailand that was especially designed for us. Everything went perfect, we had the best tour guides ever. They were so knowledgeable and friendly. The hotels were great and in good areas. Our drivers were always on time and flexible. We would never have been able to see and do everything that we did if we had done it ourselves. Andy was there for us thru the whole booking process giving us options he knew we would love. Price was great also….we will be booking Exotic Voyages again!!!!!!

20 Day SE Asia AMAZING tour

We toured Chiang Mai, Thailand, Luang Prabang, Laos, Siem Reap, Cambodia and HaLong Bay, Vietnam.

Absolutely amazing trip, start to finish. Tented camp, private dinner under the stars, private picnic lunch at secluded ruins with foot massages, day with elephants at a real elephant rescue facility, private cooking class, lantern festival, private monks blessings. Incredible hotels and excellent guides. Take a look at our other reviews to see the places Exotic Voyages booked us for. I would use this agency again in a heartbeat.

Thailand and Myanmar

We just got back from a fantastic trip and once in a lifetime..our consultant Andy made the suggestions and he was right on the mark..the tours and tour guides were exceptional ..their English and knowledge were par to none..our plane rides 7 in all were on time and the people could not have been nicer..we went balloon riding in Bagan and cooking school in Chang Mia with many temples and pagodas in between..Kayaking in Thailand and sitting on a beach in Pukuet and we are Grandparents ..I would highly recommend Exotoic Voages we have traveled far and wide and never had such care and services.

Vietnam and Cambodia adventure

Highly recommend Exotic Voyages for your travel to Vietnam and Cambodia. Our 10 day journey was fantastic, with guides, hotels and transportation that largely exceeded our expectations. The company communicates very well and made the entire trip easy.
