    Phat, our tour leader, was great. Most locations were excellent. I particularly enjoyed the homestays.

    The trip felt more like a tour where at every opportunity I was taken to a place to be sold things. However, I have been with Intrepid to Africa and that was a real adventure, so I would use you again - even though I was not too satisfied with this... Show more
