This tour was amazing, I especially enjoyed the Vietnam leg as most of the travelling was done overnight. I would highly recommend this tour and think it is great value for moneyOverall Rating
It was an interesting experience to be able to see the countryside from bus windows instead of from plane windows. I feel we got to see the "real every day life" in Cambodia and Vietnam. And in addition to this, the group was a happy combination of friendly travelers, led by a positive tour leader.Overall Rating
It was wonderful for two primary reasons: The landscape is impossible to beat, and our tour leader, Steve Wakeham, was an absolute gem.Overall Rating
The tour guide provided excellent services and programs were well arranged. I’d recommend the trip to anyone that is interested in adventure activity and healthy enough to explore the trip.Overall Rating
It was a great trip! My friend and I traveled in a group with 13 other people, and it was nice for a change to have some people to travel with. Plus our tour leader always recommended us to see the main attractions in the cities we visited and of course arranged the trip to the attractions, so you didn't have to worry about a guide or transportation.Overall Rating
I think this was a great way to introduce myself to the culture of SE Asia. (And really my first trip outside of North America).Overall Rating
I had an amazing time on the tour. The travelling was well organised and the hotels were better than I was expecting for the basic style trip. I would definitely go on a group tour with G Adventures again.Overall Rating
This was the best tour that we have ever been on. The freedom of the G Adventures itinerary really suits us. We also liked using the local transport because it gave you a better feel for the country and its people.Overall Rating
My tour was a fantastic experience, one I will never forget. I would travel with G Adventures again anytime, anywhere.Overall Rating
