I felt that we didn't miss a thing in our travels. If we skipped something, we would have missed something well worth experiencing.Overall Rating
Overall, the trip was great. Everything on the trip went as planned, buses were on time, local guides were excellent, accommodations were very centralized, and there was plenty of time for individual activities.Overall Rating
This trip far exceeded my expectations. The tour was very well organized, our leader was amazing, and our group got along fantastically. G Adventures made sure we got to see all of the most interesting and culturally significant aspects of each city, and I left feeling extremely satisfied with my experience in Asia.Overall Rating
The tour was great! Being my first trip to Asia, G Adventures provided everything that I was looking for- plus more.Overall Rating
I thought that the tour was an amazing insight into the Cambodian people. I came thinking that I would learn about the country, and its history with Angkor, and Bo brought a side to the country and the tour that I could have never experienced on my own. He brought us experiences that were tailored to our interests and tried at ever turn to help us experience the life of the people. I thought that was a very special gift and I will treasure it always.Overall Rating
I have to be honest that I was skeptical when I signed up for a trip that focused primarily on Cambodia because I did not know what to expect, but I am so happy that I did! I came away from this trip so pleasantly surprised and impressed with Cambodia, from the buildings in Phnom Penh to the temples in Siem Reap to the Cambodian people themselves. Traveling with G Adventures allowed me to do things I never would have even thought of on my own and I met people on this trip that I plan on staying in touch with for good. I cannot wait to go on another G Adventures trip next year.Overall Rating
Overall was fantastic. G Adventures should really do more marketing in the USofA. Or pay me, because I've been doing a lot of marketing for them since ;>Overall Rating
the experience was amazing...definitely not something i could plan on my own and the tour provided me with a lifetime of memories!!Overall Rating
This was my fifth tour with G Adventures. Angkor Wat was great and exceeded my expectations. Local tour guides were excellent. Too much time was spent on land travel between destinations.Overall Rating
I really had a good time with everyone of the tour. Everything was well organized and planned and my tour guide was very considerate to our needs. All transportation was comfortable and well maintain. I would travel again with G Adventures for my next tripOverall Rating
I think G Adventures gets it right as far as the balance between structured activities and free time goes. I also liked that we used many modes of transportation to move from place to place. The smaller groups are also a huge advantage!Overall Rating
The tour was awesome - Erica is a great tour leader and culture, people, landscape of Cambodia are really worth experiencing. Thanks!Overall Rating
This was a great experience, it was my first time out of the USA and Kym Daly made it quite a memorable experience.Overall Rating
i had an excellent experience. I loved the fact that we covered so much ground in such little time. I just wished i had booked the northern part of vietnam after i saw the other groups photos and heard their stories!Overall Rating
Wonderful itinerary. Loved Cambodia in general, Angkor especially. Enjoyed boat ride to Phnom Penh. Could easily have spent another day in Angkor area--perhaps a flight to Bangkok, eliminating that awful bus ride could have allowed for another day in siem Reap area.Overall Rating
Just the perfect mesh of independent and scheduled activityOverall Rating
Great! The G Adventures guide and the local guides gave us enough information to help us really appreciate all we saw and did.Overall Rating
Fantastic trip. our leader suggested great restaurants and guided us through all the tough stuff.Overall Rating
Tour leader was very professional, and made sure everyone in the group was enjoying the trip.Overall Rating
