I took the 10 days to Bangkok Thailand. Overall, a good tour, good service and a very responsible and fun guide : Patty! Transportation good. Hotels, I believe they are rated 4; but for me the only 4 stars was the one in Bangkok city; the other are3 stars. Places to eat not bad, but expect to find many flies most of the time. Optional tours...if you are animal lover don't take the tiger zoo and elephant ride. If you love beach, take Coral Island. Bangkok is a populated city so expect to find a lot of traffic, vendors everywhere and dirty streets and garbage. Be aware on the streets, actually the streets are more secure that they look like ; but still go with precaution . Ping pong shows is not worth the money but cabaret show with lady boys, yes! The tour takes you to the important temples but you have to pay extra for the tour to emerald Budha and great palace. The tour is worth the money so definitely worth the money. I'll recommend to take a tour that includes Chiang Mai and some island like Phuket, maybe you have to pay more for the tour but its worth it. Thailand, is a must go destination and if you want to go there, definitely take a tour which will be cheaper and less planning. I will consider affordable Asia for my next trip for sure!. PS: if you have at least 6 hours layover in Beijing I recommend you to take a tour to Great Wall! It is a 1h 30m from the airport and you can get a 72 hours pass from immigration in China at the airport, the pass is a yellow card that the airline will give you before landing; fill it out and at the airport go to the line of 72 hour pass. There are many companies that offer the tour to Great Wall from the airport. Have a safe trip!

Our hard working & funny tour guide, Patty, was awesome!! We were well taken care of; it was a worry free trip. Hotels were great and buffet breakfasts were incredible, especially Bangkok hotel. WiFi free in lobbies. Then lunch & dinners were just 4 hours apart. We always felt full. Transportation was reliable & safe. Optional activities: you can decide once you get there for the same price as on-line prepay which we appreciated. Yes to lady boy show, no to ping pong show, it was an absolute waste & disgust, wish we would have been better informed. Loved the bamboo raft ride down river!! Wish it was longer & earlier in the day, I think we ran late that day, it was a long drive & the only unsatisfactory dinner in the trip. Prepare for mosquitos. I'd prefer to skip cemetery to have more time to relax in hotel which had beautiful grounds & pool. Lots of temples and cultural sites. Not great for beach & snorkeling seekers even in Coral Island. Worth paying a bit more for tour to Chiang Mai or Phuket instead of Pattaya. After 1 day in Pattaya left group to fly to Phuket for James Bond island tour, so beautiful! However, we should have done it on 2nd day in Bangkok because tour ends with another 1.5 days in Bangkok again. Plenty of time for shopping. Bangkok has horrible traffic at most hours of the day, don't underestimate time. Luckily, Patty had us up & out of hotels before getting stuck in traffic. AA listens to feedback and was no longer going to include Zoo. Wish they asked for feedback after 4 days while fresh in our minds. AirChina not the greatest service, strict security and 5+ hours lay over in cold Beijing airport. On return, came prepared with cup-o-noodles. Airport has filtered cold, warm & boiling water. We'll definitely consider AA for another trip.

This was my husband and my first groupon and Affordable Asia experience! All we can say is "Just Do It!" Everything about our tour was amazing!! Our tour guide, Sharky, was fabulous and so helpful! Many daily tours were included, all of our airfare, 5 star accommodations, and breakfast each day! We truly cannot think of anything that wasn't top notch, and we travel a lot world-wide! The price through Groupon was just a tad higher than a round trip ticket! Amazing! Just Do It!!

"This Peru travel agency planned and booked a custom trip for me and my wife to Peru in October 2015. The trip included a short stay in Lima, and almost a week in the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and Cusco. Their service was outstanding. The planning for the trip was perfect, and we relied entirely on them as we had not been to Peru before. They also went beyond the call of duty by getting a reservation at a good hotel in Lima even though there was a huge convention of the world bank in town at the time. They persisted until they found a cancellation. they even booked two good restaurants for us in Lima. The guides they provided were also excellent, including one who was truly outstanding.

I never would have located this company except through Zicasso. Two years ago we made a trip to Brazil and we looked and looked for a travel agency of this kind and never did find one. I would highly recommend using Zicasso to find the appropriate agency if you are traveling somewhere that you have not previously been to, or if you do not have an agency you are satisfied with."
