    Our tour started in Thailand before travelling through Laos and Cambodia, finishing in Vietnam a month later. Larissa was the Tour Manager and I can honestly say we couldn't have asked for anyone better. She was knowledge, exceedingly organised and fun to be with. I was particularly impressed with how she dealt with problems that arose and how she stayed collected in stressful situations. As a 'customer', I felt like I could completely trust Larissa and I really hope our paths cross again. Thanks for the best month ever Larissa

    Set off on my first ever tour, for 25 days with contiki, not knowing what to expect. As soon as Lari walked into the room and introduced herself as our guide, I knew it was going to be great. She was happy all the time, always always willing to help, absolutely full of knowledge about every place we visited, and if she didn't know she'd find out quickly and be straight back with an answer for any question. She went above and beyond to ensure we were never without suggestions from her of things to do, places to eat, etc. (which by the way, we're always amazing suggestions). She was the heart of the group and she absolutely exceeded all expectations, the trip was the best experience of my life, Lari being a huge part of the reason for that. wouldn't change a thing, and would do a tour with Lari again a million times over!

    Lee was the most incredible tour manager that one could ask for when visiting a completely unknown land. She's obviously very experience in taking 30 strangers and making them all feel comfortable, involved and educated on the important history of the location in a most professional and thoughtful way. You've done a great job in hiring a very dedicated and qualified TM to represent your company.

    This was an amazing tour with an equally amazing tour manager!! Every tip we got from Lee was absolutely perfect. We began to rely on her infinite wisdom. We asked Lee's advice for everything in the end.

    Incredible tour. Matt was an amazing tour guide. Even by Contiki standards, he stands out. He has great local knowledge and is just such a nice and fun guy. Couldn't have asked for better! He also found me an Asian eye hospital to visit every two days. What a bloke.

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.

    • September 1, 2016

      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.
