My partner and I spent 16 days in Laos and Cambodia recently and this was a wonderful trip. The tour is perfect, and our guides were superb. Most of them are very knowledgable and funny. We learnt so much about the two countries, with no pressure put on us and all our needs catered for. We visited villages, local markets… which were all fantastic! I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone! Worth every penny for first class service. It is a must do!!! Felicia Mauer

We had 22 wonderful days in Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand. Every time we arrived in a new place, there was always someone waiting for us. This really comforted us a lot. Reduce our nervous feeling in a totally strange place with no language understanding. We were picked up from the airport with our luggage stored in a van every time then assisted on hotel check-in and toured with our private chauffeur and tour guide. Our tour guides are very professional and knowledgeable about their country and history and made us feel very welcome and relaxed like touring with old friends.

I recently booked a trip to Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos through your agency. Our main contact person is Andy Chen. Andy and his team of agents have coordinated an excellent trip that includes all of the places that we are interested in seeing. Additionally, they made wonderful suggestions, and arranged lovely places for us to stay. Andy responded immediately to all of our queries. I am a university English professor, and I must say that Andy's English is exceptional. I would like to thank Andy and the team for their excellent service. I recommend them with the highest honors, and we are looking forward to our trip in February. I plan to use your agency for a trip to China next year. Best wishes, and thank you.
