Customer Reviews

Hello Diu, Thank you very much for recommending and arranging an excellent tour of Vietnam and Cambodia. We had many wonderful experiences and learned a lot about your country and Cambodia. Everything worked out perfectly. The hotels, tour guides and drivers were all very good. The guides were friendly, knowledgeable and professional.
The Water Festival was on during our time in Cambodia and it was busy and lively around our hotels. We were able to take in some of the sights. A trip to remember!
Many thanks,

Cherie Wong
