We planned this trip at the last moment but had a strong point of view with regard to style and content of the travel. I was impressed when the first call I received from the company was from the owner who wanted to introduce himself and describe personally why his company was the best provider for the destinations that I had chosen. I was even more impressed that each time I had a meaningful question, I received a call from him again and he spent a lot of time helping me understand alternative choices.
Attention to detail did not end with the planning. The trip was wonderful and we were cared for by the agency's team at all times. They had incredible resources that allowed us access to unique experiences and one-of-a-kind venues. Our guide at each destination was always deeply knowledgeable, very personable and open to sharing their personal stories.
We have a particular travel style that is fast paced, immersive and educational. Our travel agency was able to exceed our expectations and we would use them again without hesitation for destination where they are experts.
There were so many enjoyable and memorable parts of the trip.
In Thailand, we loved the train and water markets. In Cambodia, we liked the Professor that toured us through Angkor and the stories he told of his family's experience during the reign of Pol Pot. We loved visiting peoples homes for lunches understanding better how people live. We loved that our guide knew the guide we had had 15 years before and helped us meet him again.
In Vietnam we loved Christmas dinner at the home of the former US Ambassador and meeting the water puppetry husband and wife team that taught us about the art and allowed us a try at it. One of the best experiences was watching my kids prepare the rice fields themselves using plows dragged behind a water buffalo that they commanded.
There were just too many unique experiences; we will remember them all.
I am not sure that there is anything that I would change.
