1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Part of the trek - cooking with the 2 guides and playing with the kids in the village. Elephants was also amazing

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Please can the operator make sure people who book this holiday have a certain fitness required as the ability of the group did affect my trip - maybe even ruined my trek. I felt they need a 1 out of 5 level. Maybe iterate that rain can make the journey harder, if you struggle with hills and down hill not for you, if you are not up to it you will be transported to the next venue, and if you are not accustomed or willing to stay in basic accommodation then this is not the trip for you.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Had Fun with the kids and an amazing local second guide and nice to support the elephants but nothing special

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

If it wasn't for the rest of the group and their fitness and attitude - 10/10. The best guide ever but I can't truly rate the trip because of the guests. The He change in itinerary was slightly irksome but Chai made it as good as he could - I felt sorry for him. My grumble was the fact that we have to wake at 3.30am on the train and got put x4 people in a room the size of a match box with 2 beds to catch up on sleep - what on earth did you expect.... us to spoon in 2 single beds as strangers?? I lay down on a wooden bench instead and just unacceptable. If it wasn't for Chai I would have really been upset with this holiday and I do wonder about this operator for future bookings. He deserves a medal.. I am going to give the trip 3 because of the people's ability and attitude but Chai 5....

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

I couldn't possibly choose one thing, but Laos is beautiful and the people are gentle and kind. Vietnam is crazy, hectic with stunning beaches and Halong Bay, Wow. Cambodia Khmer temples are deservedly among the wonders of the world and the people at the homestay were so welcoming. Thailand has everything going for it and I only saw a tiny bit.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Its very hot, don't forget the electrolites.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent.

review 6 Feb 2013

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The most memorable parts were the homestay where we experienced what life really is for the locals who were so welcoming and friendly to us. We learnt how hard their lives are but through it all they smiled, laughed and shared their homes with us. We also felt that we helped to contribute to a more hopeful future for them.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Donít take too much luggage. Wherever you go there are very cheap laundries (not hotels). Dont worry too much about dirt, squat toilets and the like! Be prepared! The markets are wonderful so also be prepared to buy up big with a spare bag to bring it all home. Also be prepared for plenty of other tourists good and bad. And when you get to Hanoi just go for it! (Crossing the road!)

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The type of travel we did on this trip was responsible by learning about local issues as well as broader political and historical facts. We had the most amazing tour leader who has a wealth of knowledge and is a credit to our tour operator with his ethics and support for the environment, conservation and his hope to improve the lives of people in all the countries we visited.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

This 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. I have to say though the two main reasons for the success was that the group got on extremely well together and our group leader was exceptional. His name is Kom and he is a young man from Cambodia who made our journey remarkable. I give him *****! (He is great fun too!)
