Tour: Cambodia and Price : $2499 (plus single supplement) was excellent value. https://www.tripadeal.com.au/deals/4559-vietnam-cambodia-discovery
Value: Excellent value for the price. The tour included return international full-service flights, two internal flights, an overnight junk boat cruise on Halong Bay, 12 nights in 4-star accommodation, and 17 meals including daily breakfast.
Group Dynamics: The group size of nine was ideal. We were able to get to know each other and form friendships, which made the trip more enjoyable.
Accommodation: The hotels were generally very good, with comfortable rooms and excellent locations. The Hanoi hotel was a bit older, but it was still clean and comfortable.
Breakfast Buffet: The breakfast buffets were a great way to start the day. There was a wide variety of food to choose from, and the quality was excellent.
Quality of Guides: The guides were knowledgeable and enthusiastic. They provided us with a wealth of information about the local culture, history, and attractions. They were also very helpful and went out of their way to make sure we had a good time.
Optional Tours: The optional tours were a great way to explore at our own pace and delve deeper into specific interests. We did a few of the optional tours, and we all enjoyed them.
Internal Flights and Buses: The internal flights and buses were efficient and comfortable. We never had to wait long for transportation, and we always arrived at our destinations on time.
Language Barrier: Our guides were all fluent in English, so we didn’t have any problems communicating with them. However, we did encounter some language barriers when interacting with locals. The Google Translate app worked a treat.
Assistance with Local SIM Cards: The guides could have been more helpful in assisting us with purchasing and setting up local SIM cards. For us, it was a fairly easy process, but a number of people on the tour weren’t as tech-savvy.
Overall: We had a wonderful time on this tour. It was an excellent value for the price, and we would highly recommend it to others.
