GUIDE: Mohammed was the most helpful, friendly and knowledgeable guide I have ever used. in many aspects he went way above what required of him. I don't think anyone on our tour could possibly find any fault with him in any way. thankyou Mohammed
TOUR: The tour was a very comprehensive tour with well placed hotels, although some of them did need a bit more attention to detail and service, ( Rabat especially). Chefchauoen ( Riad Madrid ), Essaouira ( Lala Mira?) and Todra Gorge (Hotel Amazir) were especially good. ”
Our guide Hilke was such a trooper, we couldn't have had a better guide. She was out looking for the northern lights every night for hours for us and getting soaked leading the few brave travellers behind a huge waterfall without any complaint. She was always enthusiastic and ready with a fact, story or joke. Hilke really does deserves all the praise in the world!
The tour was also fantastic, I felt like we got to see a good part of the west and south Icelandic coast without spending too much time in the coach. Accommodation was very comfortable and I would recommend this tour to anyone.”
I cannot praise your guide in Vietnam enough -Ken. He was very professional and knowledgable.He was extremely organised and gave us important details each day of what we needed, how long we would have at each place, how long before the next comfort break.
He gave us many interesting talks on the bus in short spurts to keep our interest on everything to do with the country; politics, education, history,culture, traditions, music, agriculture, everyday life, along with anecdotes from his experiences. his delivery was passionate,enthusiastic, and fun as well as informative. Although his experience was apparent it by no means compromised his enthusiasm. He happily answered all questions and gave good advice ( even the best places to take photos) He demonstrated thought for the needs of each individual regarding different activities( eg arranging transport for those not able to do the bike ride) He was very aware of health and safety and security too.He had good leadership and the respect of the group and was fun in social activities. 5 stars to Ken.
The tour was well organised with free time at appropriate times.
Cambodia- though I appreciate the guides didn't have time to get to know the group we found the guides less organised, didn't have the same 'control' of the group in terms of waiting for older,slower members , making sure all could hear the talks and a little rushed. I realise the culture of the Cambodians is more 'laid back' but Iwas having to ask for information I expected to be given eg. How long at each place, what I need, one day before setting off I held up departure as I didn't have my Anghor Wat pass ( I wasn't told I would need it that day for other temple visits) The group would have liked more free time at Anghor Wat itself.
Tour hotels were excellent.
We took advantage of arranging the flights through your company and were offered two, we chose Korean airlines who provided an excellent service but the journey times were excessive eg. Return 17 hours flying time and 6 hours stopover in Seoul. Fellow travellers had far superior arrangements eg Cathay Pacific from Manchester.
Thehighlights of the tour were Halong bay, Hoi An and there farm/bike trip and Pnom Penh royal palace and the arranged group lunches. The disappointment was the long trip along a river to get to the floating village at Tonle Sap lake.”
We returned yesterday after a fabulous stay in Egypt. We have enjoyed every minute and found the tour well balanced, informative and entertaining! For myself, having waited 40 years to see the sights and experience the culture, I was not disappointed, and the trip fulfilled all my expectations. Our hotels were great and the service too, we had great food and felt well cared for.
Our tour guide was excellent, always good humoured, helpful and a mine of information. Nothing was too much trouble and our group all enjoyed his company. His extensive archaeological knowledge and willingness to talk about Egyptian life and history made every excursion interesting and exciting and we appreciated his help with the street traders, language, and cultural differences that we encountered..
Thanks to all who were involved with the planning and coordination of the tour. We will be recommending others to follow in our footsteps to Egypt with your company.”
Our time with Mahmoud was excellent. His knowledge of all things for Ancient Egypt and his enthusiasm was suburb and really added to the enjoyment of our trip. He was always on hand to give us advise and support. He went out of his way to ensure that we had every opportunity to see and experience all that was on offer. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Egypt and would have no problems in recommending this tour to friends and family. I would like to thank Mahmoud for making our trip so special.”
Tour was absolutely amazing!! I don't think you can really see Vietnam unless you are on a tour. On the Go, and especially our guide, Ken, were so organised! We knew exactly what was happening each day!
Most of the hotels were lovely, especially the one in Hoi An, however a lot were definitely in need of a refurb. The hotel we freshened up in may need to be reconsidered. We were there for the sole purpose of having a shower, and the bathroom didn't even have a 'shower'. Just a shower head on the wall between the toilet and basin, no glass around it. The whole bathroom was wet after one person.
Our only suggestion for the tour would be to not do the Mekong markets twice. We feel like time could have been better used by going straight from the airport to the war museum, and then notre dame and the post office. You could then drive down to Can Tho in the evening and stay as planned. The next morning you could do the markets when there is lots of action and then do the group lunch before heading back to SGN in the evening!
Ken was absolutely amazing! No words can describe how helpful he was. This tour would not have been the same without him!! 5* for him!”
