We loved our Southeast Asia travels taking us into the indigenous cultures through a historical perspective of numerous temples, pagodas, museums, arts, and local living experiences. The trip itinerary took us amongst the rich rain forest environment via several excellent boats on the Mekong River and buses through remote countryside. The Indochina experience lives within us and prompted us to gain a clearer perspective of how to carve out the rest of our lives.

The tour was very well organized and we have seen and experienced as much as possible within the one month we have traveled Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia. Each country has its own customs, natural beauty and history. We experienced the calmness of Laos in contrast to unbelievably busy and noisy Hanoi/Vietnam. The richess of Thailand in contrast to very poor Cambodia where people are smiling in spite of their tragic past.

The trip exceeded all my expectations and I feel it was worth every penny! We stayed in nice hotels; our leader Derek was fun and knowledgeable; I formed new friendships with people of all ages and nationalities; we had relatively comfy transportation; the food was yummy everywhere; and, last but not least, we experienced some amazing scenery and memorable sights along the way. I liked the flexibility of the itinerary too - we got to make our own schedule but we didn't have to organize a thing since everything was always taken care of by the tour leader.

Overall this tour (I did the 29 days!) was an awesome experience! True, there were some obstacles I faced at times, including the heat, city smog/pollution, some food issues, and negotiating steps with a fairly new knee replacement. But in spite of these, I experienced so many new things (cruising down the Mekong River, Ha Long Bay, palaces & temples, tubing, temple ruins, etc, etc, etc) that this tour was a wonderful adventure for me!

Excellent tour. Much variety. Also time to rest and recoup in between activities. Overall, our Group leader, Bo Sowath was very conscious of the safety of the group and went above the call of duty to help passengers. His knowledge of local people and contacts helped us to leave Cambodia when the Bangkok Airport was closed.
