Adam "I enjoyed a wonderful Intrepid tour of Vietnam and Cambodia. Our local guides were excellent, giving us a real insight into the history and culture of this fascinating part of the world. The accommodation was of a good standard and our group was small but fun. There were too many highlights to mention them all but some included seeing the beautiful world heritage Halong Bay on our own private C..."

    After using three other tour companies, Intrepid has earned our loyalty. Our tour guide in Vietnam was knowledgeable, and educated us on history, and the current social and cultural realisms from an insider’s view. Every step of the trip worked like clockwork and everyone from the tour guide through to the drivers and support staff were outstanding. The tours, locations and cultural information were also outstanding as were the hotels, meals, and little extras thrown in by our excellent, and energetic tour guide. Our local tour guide, Pham Huu Van, was fantastic. Not only did he show us the My Son Cham ruins, but his personal stories about the Vietnam War serving as an interpreter cannot be matched. For the personal experience of meeting Pham Huu Van I want to thank you Intrepid. On to Cambodia and Thailand our tour guide, Boreth, was beyond wonderful. He ensured we were comfortable and went above and beyond to fulfill our requests. He shared his love of history with enthusiasm. We sincerely could not have had a better host to these countries. He went out of his way to share stories, provide surprises, and make us laugh along our tour. Many could not even begin to understand or appreciate the sights, cultures, man-made and artistic marvels, and natural beauties witnessed these last three weeks. I would recommend Intrepid to appreciate all these things.

    This tour (Best of Vietnam & Cambodia) was an excellent mix of different locations, each one having something unique to offer and entertain us, and make them stand out in our memory. As this tour (Best of Vietnam & Cambodia) was a combination of two tours end to end, I had two different tour guides, who were both excellent, willing to listen and offer advice, and happy to show you something of their country. The accomodation was generally top notch (not counting the sleeper train, but that was a fun experience regardless!) and ment you could really relax when you fell into bed in the evening. I would recommend the tour, and Intrepid, to anyone who wants to experince a new country with a fun group of people who are up for an adventure.

    This trip is actually two trips combined. The first is vietnam South express. Our guide was Hoc who was great. He looked after us at all time and made sure we didn't have to worry about buses, train times etc. the accommodation on the trip was far better than I had anticipated. All clean and comfortable (apart from the beds in North Vietnam but that is how they like them). We saw and experienced so many wonderful things. The highlights for Mr personally were HaLong Bay, Hoi An (the cycle ride which is an optional extra was a real local experience) and the motorbike ride in Hue. This trip is definitely travelling and not a holiday. Highly recommended. The second part was called Cambodian traveller. Our guide was Sambath who also looked after us well. We were all travel weary by now so not so enthusiastic to do so many of the optional trip. Cambodia is far less developed than Vietnam. The accommodation was not so good. I actually changed one hotel as it was so bad. Sambath was helpful and checked a few of us into another intrepid hotel near by. The highlight of this tour was Ankgor Wat. By Battambang we all just wanted to get to Bangkok. (We had had a long day (11 hours) on a VERY bumpy road to get to Siem Reap and would have preferred to fly to Bangkok). There is nothing there and again the hotel was poor. I would highly recommend the first part of the trip, not so sure about the second.

    It was a good trip and good tour guide, value for money, As comes to optional choice, could have informed more details in brochure about optional activities, approx. charges.. We were informed the optional activities - cooking class - while we were on the tour bus to Vietnam, US 40 and if 16 of us did together, we would have discount to US35 and we MUST make decision immediately, as we were told, Christmas season, hard to book, really good cooker teach us local food cooking..... under the pressure and agreed to join this The Tropic Garden cooking class before we were even arrival in Vietnam Hoi An and had a chance to look around for ourselves. The true was, Vietnam don't have Christmas celebrate tradition, local restaurant offers cooking class everywhere and at a lot less cost. This " The Tropic Garden" cooking class taught nothing. US35 per person was overly charged and make sure anyone join this tour will take a note and don't suffer the same like us did. Specially for children, they've learned NOTHING from this cooking class.

    Just got back and it was a really fantastic trip. Halong Bay was disappointing because of mist and constant drizzle, but still good. Great guides and a very active trip - never time to be bored. Hoi An was a gem of a place. If you can, buy your souvenirs early as they are much cheaper in Vietnam. There was also enough free time and a good mixture of group activities and individual activities. We were with a great bunch of fellow travellers - everyone got on and people mixed well

    I enjoyed a wonderful Intrepid tour of Vietnam and Cambodia. Our local guides were excellent, giving us a real insight into the history and culture of this fascinating part of the world. The accommodation was of a good standard and our group was small but fun. There were too many highlights to mention them all but some included seeing the beautiful world heritage Halong Bay on our own private Chinese junk; getting a bespoke suit, leather jacket and shoes in Hoi An; going on an evening street food tour of Hanoi; seeing the majesty of the Angkor temples; coming to terms with the horrors of the Khmer Rouge at the Tuol Sleng Genocidal Museum and the Cheuong Ek Killing Fields; and taking a bamboo train at Battambang. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone interested in seeing Indochina!

      What are people saying about TourRadar?

      • Ricardo11th October 2017
        I reserved a 14 day tour of Europe and mistakenly reserved and paid for the wrong tour date. Realizing what I had done I contacted TourRadar and they rectified the situation rapidly and efficiently. A refund was issued for the monies not used and I am so far a very satisfied customer. I hope that the actual tour will go as nicely, and I will be very happy.
