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.

We just returned from our trip to Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. We went as a family of 4 and we will remember it always. The tour was well organized, we were never rushed and we got to decide what we wanted to do or what we wanted to skip. Andy, our travel consultant was patient and helpful throughout the whole trip. Can't say enough good things about this company. We will be back to do the India tour!

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.
