Welcome to Water Buffalo Tours

As the first online premium travel service specializing in private, customized, and unparalleled tours throughout Vietnam and Cambodia, we take pride in offering exceptional experiences tailored to our customers' preferences. With our director's extensive experience in the tourism industry since 1994, our company was founded in 2009, the year of the water buffalo in the Vietnamese Lunar Calendar.

The choice of the water buffalo as our company's symbol is not arbitrary. It represents our commitment to providing tough, sturdy, and loyal service to our customers, just like this remarkable animal. Our passion for excellent service and customer care has been ingrained in our approach since the beginning, and we continue to deliver on that promise.

While we are driven by our passion, we are also deeply aware of our responsibility to the communities where we operate. Over the past 15 years, we have deliberately restrained our company's growth to a maximum of 5% per year. We believe in sustainable practices and avoid mass-operating to prevent overexploitation. Preserving the integrity of our home and the destinations we operate in is of utmost importance to us.

If you desire a tour that is tailored precisely to your preferences, you have come to the right place. We specialize in creating customized itineraries that cater to your specific needs and interests. Simply Send us a request and we will be delighted to assist you in crafting your dream journey.

Why us ?

  • Private & Unparalelled Tours

    We believe in providing personalized experiences, which is why we never team up our customers for group tours. Each tour is exclusively designed for you, ensuring that your preferences and interests are the top priority.

  • Qualified in TripAdvisor's Hall of Fame

    We are proud to have earned TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence for 10 consecutive years, from 2013 to 2023. This recognition reflects the consistently high quality of our services and the satisfaction of our customers.

  • Online Operation & No Advertisement

    Our operations are conducted entirely online, allowing us to minimize overhead costs. We rely on word-of-mouth recommendations and our exceptional service to promote our tours. This means that there are no inflated fees added to the tour cost due to advertising expenses.

  • Professional English-speaking Guides

    We have a strict policy of working only with guides who have been trained by us personally. Even when we are fully booked, we prioritize maintaining the quality of our service over hiring freelance guides. This ensures that you will have knowledgeable and professional guides accompanying you throughout your tour.

  • No Tourist Shopping or Traps

    We understand that many travelers wish to avoid touristy shops and forced shopping experiences. On our tours, we steer clear of such establishments. While we may take you to local markets for sightseeing, there will be no pressure to make purchases unless you specifically request it. You have the freedom to buy what you want, when you want.

  • Localizing and Refining

    We are committed to offering tours to selected locations and continually refining our offerings. Our focus is not on expanding our business for the sake of growth, but rather on ensuring the highest quality experiences for our guests. By narrowing down our destinations, we can provide you with authentic and off-the-beaten-path experiences that truly showcase the essence of each location.
