Ask our Travellers: "The Indochina Explorer exceeded our expectations in every respect. Our tour leader was outstanding, and your local guides provided fascinating insights into their countries. Our group – a lovely mix of Australians, New Zealanders, Canadians and Brits – was a big factor in our enjoyment." G. Oosterhuis - UK

Tip's for your Holiday: The service provided by our local guides, drivers and tour leaders is second to none. If you agree, a tip – while not compulsory – is encouraged. Tipping is customary across Asia.
