    My wife and I completed our first travel tour together with Greg through the countries of Laos and Cambodia. This trip was absolutely amazing and both of is have agreed that having Greg as our trip manager took this trip from good to incredible. The organizational and operational skills that Greg demonstrated throughout the entire trip could not have been any better. This truly allowed for a smooth and seamless adventure with absolutely no worries on our part. We both thoroughlly enjoyed Greg's expertise and vast knowledge of the areas we visited and his enthusiasm to educate us along the way. We are looking forward to traveling with Greg again in the future.

    The trip was above and beyond my expectations in every single way! The transport was amazing as was the accomodation but the best part of the trip was Greg. He always went out of his way to ensure everyone had a good time and enjoyed themselves. He was constantly giving us tips on where to go and what to eat and was switched on for the entire trip. Highly recommend him

    Everything about my trip through Asia was absolutely amazing. Accommodation was so much fancier than I expected, beds were comfy, nice buses and great local guides in every country (and awesome food everywhere). Contiki Greg was such a blast and is actually one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. An entire month filled with laughter and unforgettable moments seriously wouldn't have been possible without him. #sogood 10/10 would recommend.

    Greg was an awesome tour guide and we were very lucky to have him! I was so nervous about meeting people , but Greg made so easy for us to become close by doing lots of small family dinners and games. The transportation was so easy and convenient and the overnight train was such a good and memorable night! The accomodation had everything we needed and alot nicer then I expected The trip as a whole was definitely value for money and was a safe and convenient way of travelling. I will be doing contiki again for sure

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • September 16, 2016

      Hi! I have a question: my husband and i was planning to do the Big Indochina Adventure on May 2017(if the tour is still available). I wanted to inquire on the price breakdown what the "internal air price" means, if that refers to the airfare cost to get to the start of the tour and end of the tour to head back home(to Bangkok and from Hanoi) . We were planning to get our plane ticket to Bangkok (a day before the tour) and from hanoi (going back home) separately. So I wanted to have an idea of how much it would be per person to purchase the big indochina adventure with us buying our plane ticket to Bangkok and from Hanoi . Also I wanted to inquire if my husband and I could be assigned to the same hotel room on the "twin room, shared room option" I am a female and my husband is male.

      Thanks for your enquiry on this amazing tour!

      The "internal air price" is to cover the flights included in the itinerary of the tour. The cost of getting to the meeting point of the tour, and departing from the finish point, is not included in the tour price displayed.

      Secondly, yes travelling as a couple you will be booked into twin rooms to share privately together.

      We are travelling as a couple can we be roomed in together?

      Yes travelling as a couple you will be booked into twin rooms to share privately together.
