  • Carol Perry's review about another World Expeditions tour
    4.0 - Good

    The tour was great but we were disappointed that the local company changed the accommodation to lower rated properties - it turned out that they had acquired a hotel chain and we were always switched to one of their hotels. This was particularly irritating... Read more

  • Leslie Dietz's review about another World Expeditions tour
    5.0 - Excellent

    My recent trip to Bhutan was great! The guide was on time and wonderful---very informative. One thing I really appreciated was the fact that the animals carrying our equipment were healthy and fat---that was very important to me.

  • Marcia9th August 2018
    I love Tour Radar. They gave me all the support when I needed contacting the agent themselves to solve my problems while I was on the trip. The response was always quick and I also got the best deals, always cheaper than with the operator. Can't fault it really. Just booked my second trip with them this week.
