The trip was well planned and we got to see and experience different sides of the countries that we visited. It was amazing.Overall Rating
Had a fantastic time! Saw and did so much and met some great people!Overall Rating
The entire tour was amazing. I am sure that if I planned this trip alone I would not have seen half of the things I saw in 29 days as I did with G Adventures. I felt it was reasonably priced for the elimination of hassles and planning. The pace was extremely fast but I can’t really see any other way to cram all that stuff into the trip.Overall Rating
Very good and interesting tour with a perfect mixture of sights (landscape) and relaxing time on the beaches/boat.Overall Rating

It was a lot of area to cover in the time provided but we saw and had many great experiencesOverall Rating
I had an amazing time on the Indochina discovery trip. There was the right balance of sightseeing and relaxing time and i definitely feel that i saw a lot more of the countries we visited than i would have been able to on my own in the same amount of time..It was great to have the hassle taken out of travelling! I particularly appreciated the local knowledge our group leader was able to share with us and the great local experiences he was able to arrange (like having dinner in the home of one of our guides in Cambodia and visiting a school) Lots of highlights of the trip..Angkor Wat, dinner at our guide's house in Phnom Penh, gorgeous beach at Nha Trang, Hoi An, taking a motorbike around hue, waking up to beautiful scenery and tubing in Vang Vieng, waterfalls and kayaking in Luang Prabang...excellent!Overall Rating
A good mixture of locations and activities and extremely well organised.Overall Rating
