This company did a great job of organizing my 21 day trip to Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. The planning process was easy and I was able to tailor the hotels and activities to my preferences. (I would recommend that other travelers select 4 star hotels at a minimum/ check Trip Advisor for other persons' feedback).
Each of the guides were great and very friendly. They met me promptly at each airport, ensured that I checked in OK for my flights to the next city on the tour, spoke good English and were able to provide great commentary and historical facts about each of the sites we visited. We traveled in modern, clean SUVs in each city.
I was pleased with the daily activities and I'll definitely consider them for my next Far East tour!
The most enjoyable parts of the trip were:
1) Visiting the elephant sanctuary in Laos
2) Visiting the Angkor Wat temple in Cambodia
3) Doing the 1.5 day cruise to Halong Bay (Note: it is getting really crowded there however as there were 20 other boats in my area.)
4) Eating various pho and walking around the city with my guide Michael in Hanoi
5) Visiting the island villages and seeing the basket boat and mat crafts persons in Tra Nhieu village, Hoi An, Vietnam
I would reallocate some of the time as many of the activities could have been combined and done in one day to save time. I would have:
Spent 1 less day in Laos (do 3 and not 4 days).
Spent 1 less day in Hue (do 2.5 and not 3.5 days).
Spent 1 less day in Hoi An.
Visited the Ban Gioc–Detian Falls.
Pay the price $$$ and travel by sea plane to Halong Bay so as to save 8 hours of driving time.
Visited Phu Quoc Island or another well rated beach.
By the last week of the tour I was tired of visiting temples. Although they are all very nice and some are great historical sites, you get fatigued from the drives to go see them.
