For a full 20 days, you will experience all the splendour that is Indochina; from Hanoi, Vietnam, to Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Discover Vietnam's natural beauty with a cruise in Halong Bay in the Gulf of Tonkin, where you will see many of the diverse islands and experience the traditional routines of those people inhabiting remote regions. Embrace the wonderment as you pass through the mountainous former border of South Vietnam that is referred to as the "Pass of the Ocean Clouds". See sites of religious significance as you travel down the Perfume River on motorboat. A stroll through the Hoi An World Heritage Site of the My Son complex that contains many Hindu relics; a walk through the underground tunnels of Cu Chi near Ho Chi Minh City, where 10, 000 people lived during the war; or just glancing upon the 400-year-old Japanese Covered Bridge along the Thu Bon River. We head into Cambodia to see many attractions of antiquity, including busy markets in Cambodia's capital, Phnom Penh, and Angkor Wat, one of the most famous religious structures in the world.

I enjoyed ALL the excursions but really liked the visit to the Hill Tribes, Ha Long Bay, Cu Chi Tunnels and the cruise on the Mekong along with the floating markets, Hue s Pagoda, and cooking class. There are no words except awesome to describe Angkor Wat - a must see on my destinations list. I never experienced a boring or uninteresting day! The guides were good. Transportation was certainly comfortable and at times quite interesting! Canoes or junks anyone! Our tour leader handled everything with exceptional grace, leadership and good humor. She was very helpful when presented a question or problem. She has excellent organization skills, is thorough and follows through. She was friendly, did not show favoritism, has a good sense of humor, displays concern and is a good leader. So happy I went.

Always patient and good sense of humour. He [Tour Leader Chris] worked long, hard hours at time and he never showed that he was tired or impatient. He was godlike!
Donna N. (North Vancouver, BC, CA)
All of the excursions were excellent and the local guides were well informed, very personable and struck a good balance between the amount of information they provided and the need for "quiet time." The junk cruise on Halong Bay was outstanding. Dien Bien Phu and the hill tribes was a look into history and culture not to be missed. We enjoyed every excursion on this trip.

I enjoyed all excursions, but found the ChuChi tunnels very interesting. The temples were all different and extremely interesting. We found all the guides to be very informative, open and interesting. They all had personal stories that moved us and showed a different glimpse of their respective areas. I don t think that any improvement could have been made. They did not shy away from any questions and I think answered all of them with candor and honesty. It certainly improved our knowledge of Vietnam and Cambodia. The meals met and exceeded our expectations. Some of the presentations were amazing. Erin always made meal time fun and entertaining. Erin was and is a gem. She was informative, open and funny and yet maintained good control. We either called her our Fearless Leader or the Countess (she counted us all the time). She mingled with each member of the tour, shared many stories and shared her infectious laugh. We know she toiled deep into the night and still was bright and cheery the next day. We were very impressed with the tour and Erin made it even better.

My favourite excursions were Halong Bay junk cruise,loved everything about Hoi Anne, loved the Mekong Delta excursion and the floating markets. All of the local guides were very knowledgable and provided excellent services especially Bien in Saigon area. Transportation was well organized and comfortable, very courteous bus drivers and assistants. Loved the variety and local cuisine selected by Erin our tour leader. Erin was very professional, never late, very organized, great sense of humor, great at presenting us with surprises, able to deal with many personality types. Loved her. She presented information well and was apparent that she had a good knowledge of the areas. We loved her and after the experience with Erin as our tour guide we would definitely consider another tour. This was an excellent tour.

Superb, first-rate vacation that made me feel like I was truly living an experience. I was immersed in local culture from the first day and so I never felt like an outsider looking in at Vietnam and Cambodia, rather I was experiencing it from the point of view of an insider. Laura is exceptional and is a magnificent ambassador for Adventures. She was unflappable, capable, always cheerful and charming. I never saw her lose her cool with anybody and yet she was very businesslike in how she got things done on the road. No detail was left undone. She overlooked nothing. Laura was den mother, nurse, insider, expert, diplomat - in short she was perfect.
Neil H. (Lancashire, LA, GB)
We enjoyed all the excursions. The buses were clean and comfortable. Erin, our tour leader, was excellent. Erin was well prepared for the places we visited .We were impressed by her depth of knowledge. She is very professional, knowledgeable, helpful, friendly, concerned for the welfare of her group. The holiday fully met our expectations.

I have been on a number of Adventures Abroad tours and I can say that Laura Rudderforth is among the best of your tour leaders--very possibly the best of all. Nothing was a problem for her. If difficulties arose, she dealt with them very effectively and decisively. She did a number of things to make the tour a very positive experience for all of us. I am sure we all commend her for her good work, attention to detail, and depth of knowledge.
