My friend and I have just finished an excellent vacation to Vietnam and Cambodia with this tour company. This came out to be a wonderful experience, full of memorable and extraordinary memories.
We have traveled with them before on many occasions and this recent holiday highlighted all their excellent characteristics namely:-
* Carefully planned and full itinerary
* Periods of free time built into this
* Excellent hotels in the best locations
* First-class tour guides (Mariella on this occasion - brilliant!)
* Use of local guides, we had 5
The brilliant spot selection included:
Hanoi - Attractive capital city, rich cultural heritage
Hue - Historic center, the former capital, intellectual and sophisticated
Ho Chi Minh City - Buzzing, frenetic activity. Try crossing the road!!
Phnom Penh - Capital of Cambodia, such charming, friendly people
Siem Reap - For Angkor and its temples ....amazing!
There's a charm about this beautiful yet puzzling kingdom that calls a spell on visitors. In Cambodia, old and new worlds clash to form an actual adventure. Second city Siem Reap, with international cafes and a distinct nightlife, is as much a stop as the nearby iconic temples. And up-and-coming Battambang, reminiscent of Siem Reaps before the advent of mass tourism, charms with graceful French architecture and a thriving contemporary art scene.
Our holiday was full of walks, markets, history, shopping, pagodas, temples and much, much more. As long as you can cope with long flights (and 5 shorter internal flights too), I would recommend it to anyone.
