We had a fabulous trip to Vietnam and Cambodia with all details arranged by this travel agency. Our guides along the way were top-notch -- very knowledgeable, accommodating and fun to be with -- and we remain friends with one of them. The hand-offs from guide to guide as we moved to different parts of the country (and into Cambodia) was seamless. At the end of our trip in Siem Reap, when we discovered that our airline flight (which we had booked ourselves and not through our travel agency) had been cancelled and another not scheduled until the following day, our guide intervened with airline representatives to ensure that we were booked on another airline that same day. In the past, we have always planned our own trips and made all of our own arrangements.... however, we would never had been able to duplicate this experience on our own. We plan on using this company again on our next trip to SE Asia.
We appreciated the time that our travel agency took to customize our trip to emphasize the cultural interactions that we wanted with local people. We met lots of interesting folks -- from villagers to musicians to artists to a magazine publisher/scholar, and we had lunch in the homes of several families who were delightful to meet and get to know. One of the highlights was a half day Vespa tour of the countryside around Hoi An where we got to visit a number of a number of families, as well as a small coffee plantation. Our two-night cruise of Halong Bay was spectacular.
We would opt to go in early January or late December, rather than in early March. Although the temperatures were very pleasant in the northern and central Vietnam, by the time we reached Saigon and Siem Reap, it was very hot and humid, with temperatures up near or above 100 degrees. Still enjoyable... but would have been even more so with slightly lower temps.
