Indochina overland holiday
Our guides Ant, V & Kinal were so considerate they went out of their way to show us the best of each country & more. Fantastic! (more)Annie Koppi
Excellent holiday. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Would recommend to others....An excellent way to see Indochina - airport to airport guided tour - with everything taken care of - excursions, hotels, transport, etc. The people are amazingly friendly, the scenery is superb, all very refreshing. Halong Bay and Angkor Wat stick out just a bit above the rest of the places we visited. (more)Vinod Mehta

Laos is beautiful and the people are gentle and kind. Vietnam is crazy, hectic with stunning beaches and Halong Bay, Wow...Excellent. (more)Anne Honeyball
was one of the best trips I have ever done. We experienced all kinds of travel, visited many amazing sites and learned more in one month than most people do in a lifetime. The most memorable part was the homestay where we experienced what life really is for the locals who were so welcoming and friendly to us. (more)Sarah Beddow
From £2355 - £2715 excluding flights

Highlights of Vietnam holiday
Memorable parts? The trip down the Mekong Delta and meeting the local people there and at other locations too. The resiliance of the people of Vietnam and the vibrancy and chaotic approach to their outdoor way of life. The amazing food and how they use local and fresh ingredients. The caves in Halong Bay. Tips? The hotels are of good quality and standard, take few clothes you can buy items their cheaply and tailor made if you wish. Taking the boat trip was a commercial experience,...

Vietnam holiday
The best parts were the old town and cycling in Hoi An. (more)Fiona Christie
The most memorable part was the home stay on the Meakon delta and the National Park. I also love kayaking and seeing the wild monkeys in Haylon bay. (more)Juliet Price
Cambodia - the temples of Angkor Wat are a true gem; Phnom Penh and its museums as well as the recent Cambodian history were heart breaking but very educational. (more)martina kocjan
From £1480 - £1705 excluding flights
Vietnam tailor made holidays
We enjoyed it all - wonderful food, pleasant, well informed guides, new experiences. Hanoi is a beautiful and really buzzing city; we'd love to go back. Mai Chau valley is beautiful and developing fast; Halong is like visiting another planet - so strange, so awe-inspiring. (more)Patricia Stoat
It was a great holiday, and it is very hard to single out one thing. Our trip to the northeast was one of the best bits (I was honoured to be invited to join the other giggling grannies on the floor of the Tay house - if only I was as limber as they are!). (more)Margery Nzerem
From £2980 including UK flights
Vietnam family holiday
Memorable parts? Walking in the hills in North Vetnam, really connected with the people off the tourist trails. Stunning. Tips? Be prepared for simple accommodation and reasonably hard walking. Although not very long walks, about 15km in a day it can get quite hot and hilly. Wish I was fitter. Local benefits? Yes, staying with families and local businesses is very important to the development of the tourist industry. Always ate in small restaurants. Overall rating? Very... (more)Angela Reid

Vietnam holidays, tailor made
Our guides were second to none and the tour company had everything well organised and went the extra mile for us. Couldn't fault them. (more)Denise Brooks
We were well taken care of. There were many local tour guides who would need to meet us and orient us, and every single one was on time, pleasant and professional. We were very impressed with how well organized this was. (more)Alisa Lipson
Halong Bay and Siem Reap were amazing, but there were lots of other lovely places and people. (more)Yvonne Chapman

South East Asia tour, Hanoi to Singapore
Snorkelling for the first time in Nha Trang (and second time in Ko Phi Phi!) was fantastic, jungle trekking in both Thailand and Malaysia was awesome...Outstanding - varied, educational and stacks of fun. (more)Matt Williams
There were so many highlights to this holiday which covered so many countries... Staying the night in a hilltribe village in northern Thailand, snorkling on the coral reefs around Ko Phi Phi, 4x4 driving, drinking tea in a tea plantation in the Cameron highlands...exploring great cities like KL and Singapore. Fantastic, but tough going at times! (more)Bridie Brittain
From £2739 excluding flights

From US $3008 excluding flights
Vietnam country tour
Memorable parts? So many inspiring parts of the trip. Some are: - Seeing the fishermen and their way of life in Hoi An, as well as the amazing historic town. - Home stay in the Mekong and the cycling around the small pathways + ferry crossing; It got us off the tourist path and into the real Vietnam, which was what we wanted. - Trying the whole variety of food on offer in different restaurants. - Stunning scenery along the coast and over the passes. - The amazing urban scenes in Hanoi and...

From £1945 - £2665 excluding flights
Vietnam small group cycling holiday
Memorable parts? Climbing the Hai Van pass. We all made it to the top and were supported throughout by our guide Danh who gave us cold drinks and cheered us on. The food was also great and we were treated to genuine local cuisine, all delicious. Tips? Take more money than recommend, especially if you want to take presents home or drink wine with you evening meal. Some people couldn't get money out of the ATMs so tell your bank that you are going to Vietnam. You don't really need US... (more)Cath Lysley
From £1949 - £2499 including UK flights
Vietnam culture and beach holiday
It was excellent. I would definitely recommend this sort of tour for a first visit. We had never had a guide or arranged tour before so it really made the difference knowing that tours had been prepaid and pick ups and cars had been pre arranged. (more)Val Bodington
Both the visit to the Cu Chi tunnels and the day on the Mekong Delta was the most memorable. (more)Emma Miller
From US $1284 excluding flights
Vietnam cycling & culture holiday
Memorable parts? We would take breaks along the road by going into people's homes and sitting down with them, eating some fruit, (sometimes using their bathrooms!) and talking with them with our guide. I have never before traveled and interacted with local people so much as on this trip. Tips? Some of the recommended supplies they listed weren't needed, such as a camelbak. Also, we stayed in pretty surprisingly nice hotels, if you want to try to save some money it might be possible... (more)jason sulkowski
From US $1250 excluding flights

Cycling in Thailand was the most memorable part. (more)Fon Atang
From £2199 - £2599 including UK flights
Halong Bay cruises, 2 day cruise, Vietnam
Memorable parts? Sitting on the deck of the Red Dragon 1 in the morning and watching the islands in Halong Bay go by. Tips? Do not select a second-rate company for seeing Halong Bay. I talked to other people whose experience was not as wonderful as mine because they missed the fishing village and being on a beautifully finished and equipped junk. Local benefits? Definitely. I saw the projects that were benefited, including the picking up of garbage in Halong Bay. Overall... (more)Sarah Schmidt
From US $190 excluding flights

We had a wonderful holiday, we were able to gain a good sense of the country and some awareness of the lives of ordinary Vietnamese people. (more)Janet Baseley
From US $1502 excluding flights
Diving & mountain biking in Vietnam
The food - absolutely delicious everywhere we went, even the meal cooked by our guide in a Tay minority homestead where we ate with the family and drank rice wine welcome shots. Phu Quoc Mango Bay resort - peaceful, eco-friendly, lots of options. The scenery - highlights, Mount Fan Xi Pan from Sapa and Halong Bay. (more)Diana Orton
We had a fantastic time and would recommend this operator to anyone travelling to Vietnam. The management of the tour was excellent. We loved Vietnam, from the food to the people to the places. There is much to see and do and we felt that our tour covered many of the beautiful areas in Vietnam. (more)Annalet van Deventer
Surviving the throng of motorbikes in the streets of Hanoi was the most memorable part. (more)Rachel Crossley
From US $2168 excluding flights
Family holiday in Vietnam
Our guide Hai was fantastic, he had lots of knowledge, had a great sence of humour and looked after us well. He really helped make the holiday as fantastic as it was. (more)Elizabeth Morgan
We were immersed in this really poor country, with the hint of past traumatic occupation and wars, and received the most generous opening of hearts from this 80% buddhist country. (more)Victoria Macdonald
From £1616 - £1954 including UK flights
Cambodia & Vietnam classic tour
Memorable parts? It is hard to be specific as everything was memorable, from the chaotic city of Hanoi to the tranquil waterways of the Mekong. The Killing Fields is a very moving experience and makes you realise how lucky we are in the UK. The local people we met in our accommodation were delightful they made our holiday. Angker Wat was spectacular at sunrise, the serene majesty of Halong Bay. Out itinerary was busy but enjoyable we experienced a fantastic culture unlike anything experienced... (more)John Finneran
From £2000 - £2600 including UK flights
Vietnam adventure holiday
It was excellent. Very well organised to ensure we saw the very best of Vietnam (more)Kay Seward
Excellent. It was a busy schedule which made the most of our time in Vietnam. We did so many great things. Experiencing the New Year celebrations on the river side in Hoian was probably the most exciting and enjoyable because of the colour, sounds and energy all rolled into one event. (more)Kathryn Heirons
From £1769 - £2249 including UK flights
Cambodia & Vietnam holiday
I would definitely recommend this tour and intend to do another one with this company....As a single traveller I particularly appreciated the fact that all the other members of the tour were extremely friendly and easy to get on with. (more)Marian Jenkins
Loved cycling in Hoi An and seeing the locals and water buffalo in the fields. The cookery class was hilarious and memorable for all the right reasons. (more)Loretta Ahmed
Most memorable part of the holiday was...everything. (more)Jack Kitchener
From £1240 - £1435 excluding flights
Budget tours to Vietnam
Memorable parts? You do so many things on this tour it is hard to choose the most memorable. If there was one experience I remember the most it was the motorbike ride around the city of Hue. We rode through the streets and out into the paddy fields and local villages. It was the best way to see the country and the whole group had a lot of fun. Tips? Just go on and book it! I found getting my visa before travelling a lot easier (rather than visa on arrival) and there are no 'special'... (more)Lindsay Challoner
From £630 - £749 excluding flights
Vietnam adventure holiday
Vietnam was amazing. The trip really opened my eyes to a totally different culture. I have been to South East Asia before but I had not seen such poverty as that of Vietnam. Yet, the Vietnamese people were so happy & friendly and such hard workers. (more)Tamsin Wheeler
Countryside, Scenery, Weather, Food, Company were the highlights. It was a great holiday. (more)Safann Mac Carthy
From £1410 - £1625 excluding flights
