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

Hoi An, Saigon, and Angkor Wat.

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

Book extra time at the beginning and end so that you can make the most of Hanoi and Bangkok, otherwise the time in these two cities is very short.

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

Yes to helping local people because we were bringing work and currency to them. Not sure about the other two, tho' we did use the same water bottles repeatedly.

A fascinating tour to a variety of interesting places.

review 23 Jan 2018

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

Difficult to say... learning about the recent history of Vietnam and Cambodia (Ho Chi Minh, the Vietnam war, Cu Chi tunnels, Pol Pot etc) Ha long bay (despite the poor weather)

Poor packing list, make up your own! There is a lot of road travel in Cambodia... and the roads are not very good.

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?

Very good.

review 1 Sep 2013

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

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. We are all still in touch with one another even though the holiday is finished. Also, the guides were very knowledgable and enthusiastic and all of the activities we participated in were extremely interesting and enjoyable. The warmth of the local people was very touching and the scenery and sights were beautiful.

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

Take a rucksack, travel light and don't forget the mosquito repellent.

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

Yes. The local people benefitted financially from our activities and shopping and there was no negative environmental impact as far as I could tell.

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

I would definitely recommend this tour and intend to do another one with this company.

review 27 Oct 2011

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

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. The night on the town in Hue - when we were like drowned rats and miserable until we lightened up and saw the funny side.

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

Pack light as there is lots of tempting things to buy, plus having wheels on your bag is seriously an advantage. Donít spend too much extra time in Hanoi if you have no firm plans as there are definitely nicer places to stop over a few days.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

I would definitely agree with the former. In fact more than any other previous holiday Iíve been on. From the push bike owners to the lady who washed our clothes. There was definitely an ethos of minimising impact on the environment but at the end of day we did get an internal flight and we seemed to accumulate a lot of water bottles! That could be improved.

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

Absolutely brilliant!
