Reviews

Scoring an average traveller rating of 4.33 out of 5 based on 3 recent reviews

We found Chenda to be very dedicated to her guide position in her home town of Siam Reap. Chenda's local knowledge and ability to impart that knowledge to us was exemplary. Not only did she impart fact, Chenda also told her own personal stories with humour and sincerity. Chenda's kindness was the quality that really stood out, in the way she assisted people around the various sites.

The only negatives were that the flight from Hoi An to Saigon was far too early ( had to get up at 3am) and the next days travelling was far too long. Don't think anybody enjoyed the next day. The free time on the last day was also severely reduced. We think that this was caused by the delay in the flight to Siam Reap however we were looking forward to free time for buying gifts etc.

Excellent and interesting tour. All guides knowledgeable and informative with John being by far the best. Only criticism would be that I prefer smaller groups - there were over 20 people in Vietnam and Cambodia. Also, would prefer not so much emphasis on spending time having lunch and latterly I felt we were on the bus too much.

Flights out were fine although we had problems with the catering. I requested vegetarian meals both on the flights and on the tour. Although the tour guides were aware of our dietary requirements and they were all very good at ensuring that our requirements were met, the airlines were not informed of our dietary requirements. KLM staff were very helpful in trying to accommodate our requirements with one cabin attendant giving us some of his meal!

Tuan was a fantastic guide, knowledgeable and dedicated. He offered exactly the right amount of information: enough so we would have the context and understanding without overloading us with information so the main point get lost. We gave us very good advise for "extra" activities such as massage place, tailor place, etc... He was always ready to help and did the extra bit to turn a very nice vacation into a fantastic one.
