From

Memorable parts? Walking in the Kyrgyz mountains. Tips? Be prepared to be flexible, pack light. Local benefits? Interaction with local people was good. Difficult to evaluate environmental impact. Use of personal water bottles is a good idea, but drinking water is mainly supplied in single use plastic bottles. Conservation is probably supported only by the fact that as tourists you bring much needed dollars into the country. Overall rating? Very good, a great way to... (more)Ges Payne

Memorable parts? We did. Trek over Ton Prival pass, approximately 4,100m high, through the snow, for 9 hours. It was an exhilarating day, with the most amazing views. The view from the top was great, but every corner on the way it just got better and better. That was a definite highlight! Tips? Have as much time as you can to spare. We managed 31 days, which allowed lots of time for visiting cities as well as hiking, which was the primary point of our trip. Don't overlook places... (more)David Harper

Indochina holiday, Vietnam, Laos and Thailand
From
£1,105

Memorable parts? A 2-day trip down the Mekong River and Luang Prabeng! I really enjoyed Laos. Hanoi and Saigon are incredibly bustling cities but have their charms. Tips? Group dynamics change as some people leave after 2 weeks and others join. Sometimes it is difficult to make the adjustment but after a few days the new travelers become part of the original group. Local benefits? I definitely think it benefited local people. Overall rating? Excellent! (more)Patricia Ruble

Vietnam, Cambodia & Thailand overland tour
From
£1,660

Memorable parts? Zipline in Cambodia. Above the trees, away from the crazy crowds at Angkor Wat. Tips? Don't book it. Not much adventure. Cambodia I would skip entirely. Felt like we were hamsters on the Intrepid wheel. So many groups everywhere we went. Same hotels, same restaurants, same activities. Local benefits? Benefitted locals to some degree. But the other 2 ... not so much. Taking care of the environment in these countries is not a priority for them. We contributed... (more)Charlotte Rothermel
