Tuan was professional, knowledgeable, hard working, went above beyond and took care of us like we were family. He deserves recognition for helping make the trip so magical and flow so smoothly, thanks to his strong organizational skills and attention to detail.”
The tour was outstanding thanks to our excellent guide Tuan! His sense of humour and fun games made the time fly when we had long drives. He kept us all on time and made sure our bags were loaded! Every bit of it was meticulously orchestrated. This was my first tour with a group and the bar was set high. I saw more in 15 days then I did the previous 2 months on my own. We had 18 in our group from all different countries and that just made the experience so much better. When we got to Cambodia we had to change guides, Nena and Ra were great. The only thing I would change would be to pack lighter. There is a laundry day half way through the trip. I would highly recommend this tour, in fact some folks only toured Vietnam and they wished they had stayed on for the rest. ”
This trip was epic, fantastic!
The journey across Vietnam and Cambodia was mesmerising, beautiful and moving all at the same time.
Our guide across Vietnam was Hung, who was simply amazing. His knowledge, humour, and organisation skills were top notch. We learnt so much about the country and the people from him.
During our first few days in Cambodia we had Long as our guide, who again was such a warm and knowledgeable guy. His personal family stories relating to the Killing Fields will long live in the memory.
If you decide to go on this tour be prepared to be "on the go" for most of the 15 days.
From the extraordinary beauty of Halong Bay, Hoi An, and Angkor Wat, through to the emotions of The Killing Fields, war museums and tunnel complexes - this trip will consume you.
Do it! ”

Recommended places to visit in Cambodia
Anyone planning a visit to Cambodia will have the incredible ancient temples high on their list but what about Cambodia's other top sights? To help you see more of Cambodia we've put together a list of some of our favourites from royal cities to coastal resorts.
Cambodia’s second biggest city, Battambang is well positioned between Bangkok and Phnom Penh. Teeming with beautiful French colonial architecture the city has more of a large town feel to it than a big smoggy city. As well as the beautiful array of temples, or ‘wats’ the other ‘must do’ activity in this small city is to ride the Bamboo train, or ‘noggy’.
The sleepy little town of Kampot is a haven of peace and tranquillity. It sits along both sides of the Kampot River, the sides of which are lined with quaint cafes and guesthouses. Main features of the town include the Central Market and a number of Buddhist shrines, nestled within caves. The city itself is far from pristine but there is a certain charm that exudes from the crumbling colonial architecture that complements the easy way of life here.
Stick licking its wounds from the scars of 1979, Phnom Penh is a vibrant and bustling city. Sitting amongst 3 rivers; the mighty Mekong, the Bassac and of course the vast Tonle Sap – it is a great stop gap between Saigon and Siem Reap. Visitors can take a relaxing walk along the riverfront, sip a Gn’T in the famous Foreign Correspondents Club or be humbled at the Tuel Sleng Genocide Museum.
Home to the world famous Angkor Wat temples, Siem Reap is the country’s most popular tourist destination. Visitors are recommended to visit the temples early in the morning in order to witness the sun rise over the lily pond, which sits in front of the main temple. The spectacle is second to none and makea for some stunning Kodak moments. After a day of history, Pub Street is the perfect place to unwind with its selections of bars and restaurants.
Not the first beach people think of when planning a Southeast Asia beach break, but Sihanoukville is fast becoming a hip and happening beach resort. Serendipity Beach is very much the young backpacker party zone whereas Otres Beach is the perfect spot for a more relaxed stay offering some excellent boutique accommodation and a quieter and cleaner beachside area.
