    Indochina Discovery was the best time of my life so far. The first time I have travelled solo and it was fantastic. I had the best group I could possibly wish for. We all loved a good party, we all got along and all brought something unique to the group. We all still speak regularly in our group chat. Our CEO Apple, is a huge inspiration and the nicest women i have ever had the pleasure of meeting. If anyone is lucky enough prepare for the best time and lots of tequila, she knows everyone in every place meaning good discounts for her "family" (as she called us). The activities were amazing, and a large variety of them too. The only issue i had was they were more expensive than they were displayed on G's website (only by a few dollars though). I would budget $400-500 if you want to do most activities (which i did). The places we visited were so eye opening, and it makes you realise how lucky you are. Amazing culture, taking into consideration the places such as Cambodia are very poor, so they are pretty scruffy but its part of the fun. Saying this, it didn't change my opinion on the activities and things we got up to. Laos is stunning!. It is very difficult for me to write everything I loved on this trip, because it was out of this world. I spent £1000, but bought a tailor made suit in Hoi an, drank every night, did most activities, and we ate at nice places. Easily can do it cheaper, but I wouldn't change what I did or spent for the world. I would recommend to anyone, and already have friends who have booked on to this trip for the future. Hope anyone who books onto this has the time of their life, as I did. Enjoy guys! Thank you, Gadventures!

    This trip could be a hit or miss. I just completed it and have to say I wasn't very happy at all. This may be because my group wasn't great, I booked through STA thinking it would be a group of young travellers, most were in their 40s/ late 30s and I am only 18 years old. We also had many couples. I liked that we got to experience things every day and there was always the option for an activity, on the other hand there is way too much unesscary transport to save the company expenses.. you spend 10 hours on a boat to a hill tribe for the night and 10 hours back to cross the border to Chang mai, that's 20 hours of time you could be spent doing travelling saved by a one hour flight to the place we were staying instead. Every day on top of this you would have a minimum 5/6 hour bus journey to get to the next place.. by the end it is very exhausting. I understand you cover a lot of places in a short space of time but believe this could be adapted with better transport techniques. Our tour guide for this trip was amazing, she was helpful and kind and always made sure we were looked after so I wouldn't fault that! Another let down however is that we always went for the safe option with activities and therefore missed out on getting the full experience (elephants, loas tubing) and another travel agency may cover these more or better. I don't think I would recommend this to a friend unless they are sure their group is of the same age otherwise you can get very lonely, a lot of this places you are staying in a remote area and therefore have limited access to any nearby hostel/ bar where you can meet people.. this is my second trip with G Adventures and I wasn't happy with the other either.
    G Adventures commented on this review
    Thanks again of the post Katie. This tour is in our 'Classic' style, meaning that it is not age restricted and open to anyone. Also, we do not support the riding of elephants as per our animal welfare policy, and the tubing in Laos is not an activity we allow because of demonstrated poor safety standards. Yes, other operators may provide for this, but they are not activities that fit within our tours. The transport is taxing, agreed, as there are many things to fit in. We will see if we can make this a little more bearable.

    Very expensive I would reckon compared to doing it yourself. A couple of places visited I would deem unnecessary, sihanoukville was a dive and I didn't like laos really at all. Accommodation decent. The included walls and activities good. CEO friendly and helpful, though was keen to take us to more expensive restaurants than was needed.

    I think the itinerary is great. The tour was well organized and went smooth. The price covers the basic transportation, hotels and some small orientations. Be prepared for +500$ (US) if you want to have a busy activities schedule during the tour. Hotels and transportation were generally OK. There was some friction in regards the tipping situation. You are basically made to feel that you HAVE tip pretty much everybody. That can cost (US) $2-4 per day apart the expected tip for the CEO (a suggested $25 per week - summing up to (US) $100 for 4 weeks !!!)... I believe that if the company feels that its employees are underpaid to increase their payment or include a one off tipping fee in the price of the tour. Continuous tipping requests caused frustration. That said I believe that a great tour to participate.

    Our tour guide chamnan was amazing! He did soo much for us and went completely out of his way for us. We did all the extras that we could and the adventure was a tour of a lifetime! Our group aka chamnans family are all still in contact over a year later and will be life long friends. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone and since have inspired two separate friends to go on the same tour

    The best month of my life so far. Amazing tour and leader. Saw so many amazing places and experienced more than I could have imagined within the space of a month. A lot of travelling which was exhausting but definitely well worth it.
