We did the boat tour with guide Hung and had an epic experience. Note that this is not a luxury experience, it's nice but true to the name you're experiencing life as locals would. The food was excellent. The drive from Hanoi was long but worth it to see this beautiful place. We drove past Ha Long Bay and saw... More

New day new impressions and new adventures, The tour guide was very knowledgable, and I learned about medicinal herbs, learned about shamanism, and different tribes way of life... More

Depending on your perspective, you could rate this high and low. We were looking for something small. That's what you get. Our trip to Halong bay was on a boat with maximum of 15 guests. The boat wasn’t the best in class by far but it was cosy enough. The food was fine; there was plenty. It was also raining... More

This company was recommended on the travel boards at Fodor's. I found them to be swift with responses and reasonably priced so we booked a four-day trek with them in the Mai Chau valley. When the day came for our tour to begin my husband had had a very long and miserable night of food poisoning. I contacted the agency... More

We booked a 9 day tour and we were very satisfied with the content of it and the way it has been managed. I believe the tours are good mixes of adventure times and relax times. The people at Ethnic Travel make a point to keep you satisfied with the trip by being flexible and caring. The guides are pretty... More

If you don't expect a high end cruise experience, this is fun. The boat is fairly small, space for about 15 passengers--a real positive--and could use some freshening up. However, it was clean, the bed comfortable, and good hot water flow. One passenger encountered a rat/mouse--probably not uncommong on these boats. The food was good and plentiful and my dietary...

I just spent a couple weeks in Vietnam in a group, and Ethnic Travel organised most of our activities and provided a fantastic cultural experience. They know the country and the hidden gems in it. Had a fantastic time, could not recommend more.
