My husband and I used Ethnic Travel for a 3 day / 2 night tour to Halong Bay and Bai Tu Long Bay. Overall, it was a positive experience as most activities were away from large hoards of tourists. This was our #1 priority. Our guide (Ming) was a little quirky but, he grew on us over the 3 days... More

We book a 3 days/2 nights on Halong bay and Bai Tu Long, and paid a hefty 186USD per person. When we arrived they told us that the plans have changed, for the best, and that we will spend the entire time in Bai Tu Long. Upon my questions, they insisted that it would be a much better experience (less... More

We took a two days one night trip to Bai Tu bay and were largely disappointed with the tour. We paid $117 dollars each and expected to receive comparable service. Instead we recieved a tour guide who spoke very poor english, did not explain any information about the things we were seeing and only seemed to care about us giving... More

In the last minute we decided to book the one day tour Van Long & Kenth Ga and as we could not arrive in time at their office we booked it by mail just one day before. It is a fine one day tour and I enjoyed the boat trip in Van Long reserve - it is a magic place... More

I booked the 3 days tour Halong Bay + Baitu Long Bay. I really appreciated the good and reliable guest service (booking, payment and additional information every time I needed). Perfect and high quality, on board and our Tour Guide "Sonny" was the best I ever met in Asia. I strongly reccomend to stay sleep in Halong Bay to taste... More

We did the 3 day / 2 night tour Hanoi - to Quan Lan Island / Bai Tu Long Bay / Cai Rong Island. It was great for us to have Ethnic Travel take care of all transport and accommodation for us. Ethnic Travel was good, but bit confusing to understand what you've booked and what you get. Also water... More

The itinerary of this tour makes it. Although we ended up doing things back to front on the tour I went on (tom accommodate the weather and make up required numbers). The day on Bai Tu Long we had the waters to ourselves with not another junk as far as the eye could see, this interspersed with kayaking and some... More

We had great day tour to Ba Be lake with this company. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. A long way to get there on their comfortable car. The road was snaky but we had great views on the way. Great trekking routes, and boat tour on the boat was amazing. Highly recommend !

My husband and I booked a day trip to the Red River Delta/Ninh Binh at the last minute after noticing the Ethnic Travel office in Hanoi. The trip far exceeded the description. We had pretty rainy weather, but that didn't stop us from mountain biking around some of the most magical scenery I've ever seen. I actually kind of enjoyed... More

We chose Ethnic travels and the 3day/2 night Halong Bay and Bai Tu Long Bay trip because (1) we wanted to support a Vietnamese company and get to know more about local Vietnamese culture (2) we wanted a clean boat for a mid range price, and also wanted to explore the bays with other tourists (not have a private tour...
