Overall, a good tour!4.0 January 2017
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!Read more

10 days Bangkok, Ayutthaya & Pattaya: Overall, excellent! Great value for the price.5.0 January 2017
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.Read more

Just do it!5.0 January 2017
L L Camp
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!!Read more

Fabulous Adventure to Rajasthan5.0 December 2018
Safehands Travel organised a bespoke adventure to Rajasthan for me.Read more
Kush (my guide) and the driver were wonderful travelling companions, I felt very safe which is so important for a solo female traveller. The driver skilfully negotiated some difficult roads occasionally with great care and professionalism.
Wonderful hotels chosen with care and very appropriate to my preferred taste.
I experience amazing restaurants away from the hotels, in the full confidence that Kush would choose well.
Travelled to villages off the beaten track, all adding to the wonderful experience of Rajasthan. From a camel ride across the desert to see the sunset to the magnificent Mehrangarh Fort, an amazing experience I will never forget.
Kush is a great guide and made my adventure complete with his knowledge, great sense of humour and patience. His enthusiasm and love for India and the desire to share his knowledge with others is endless.
Thank you to Rohit and all at Safehands for making my adventure so easy and enjoyable. Great care and attention were taken with the details of the journey with quick response to any questions. Fantastic service from first booking to the end of my journey.
Definitely will return to India and put myself again in the exceptionally capable hands of Rohit and his team, confident in the knowledge that it will be organised personally for me with the greatest of care, professionalism and attention to detail.
