The 12 day tour also includes trips to Siem Reap(Angkor), Tonle Sap Lake, Battambang and Phnom Penh which was a great way to learn more about Cambodia and the current socioeconomic conditions of the area. We would not have been able to appreciate Cambodia the way we did without this tour, and would highly recommend BAT.

Since we are not the worldliest of travelers and were a little hesitant about being on our own in Southeast Asia, we wanted the comfort of local escorting guides and found BAT in our research. You may be thinking timid Americans, and to a certain extent, we were. But, Andy and the people from the Yangon office eliminated all anxiety. We felt completely comfortable everywhere we went. It was like having a guide, translator, world history text books and security blanket all wrapped up in one. And, with one of my kids having some stomach issues in Yangon, both our guide, Samath and the driver, Yu, went way out of their ways to take care of us. We would never have had such an amazing experience in Myanmar without them.

I would like recommend Bravo Asia Tour for multinational tour in Asia. I do my research on internet and have contacted several tour operators. It appears to me that BAT is by far the best. (1) They don't over- charge. (2) Their service is good. Pick up on time and our guides went with our flow instead of rushing us from one spot to another. We had a tea break by a river and my young boys got very excited and decided to go for a swim. We spent about an hour there and he never pushed us to leave. (4) We visited a local market and my children were happy to see the strange food or snacks etc. People were very friendly there. (5) The car was clean and comfortable (6) the trip didn't appear to be a tourist trap. (7) Even my 5 and 7 years old boys had a great time! If you want to go to Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand, look no further. Different tour operators are slightly different but this one is really good enough.

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!

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

Asia is still reasonable priced for us so we choose private tour of Bravo Asia Tours and it was really worth the money given! This is the second time that I visited Asia, and also the second time that I took on the tour and both times I enjoyed. Private car and tour guide, show you through while telling the related stories in a funny way.
