    4.5 - Excellent

    I honestly could not be more happy with a trip. Firstly, our guide Jack, was hilarious, interesting and so loving - he really made it so amazing. Our accommodation was a real treat, the activities were all awesome. The only comments I have is that I wish some of the long hours in buses were done overnight to save exploring time, and also that the temple day at Angkor Wat was a little bit long, 12-13 hours on our feet and adventuring was maybe a little too long. However, the rest of the experience was incredible and it will stay with me for a lifetime! I so wished I had been able to continue the full tour through Vietnam, Laos and Thailand so I would definitely recommending doing it all when possible.

    We had a fantastic time! We've learned tons about Cambodia and Vietnam and been to some incredible places. Haing was brilliant and was full of information and helped us out massively when an ATM swallowed our card. We had a brilliant time and would definitely recommend the tour.

    2.0 - Rather poor

    Overall the tour got us safely from A to B and did what it said on the tin. So why was I disappointed? 1) Poor value for money. I could have done the trip myself for a third of the cost. In addition they made money out of us on optional activities which left a sour taste 2) Poor group dynamics. There was two tours doing the same itinerary, my group had 7 and the other had 16! I have no idea why this was the case but it was a shame as I didn't get along with my group. 3) The tour guide was just ok, I was disappointed he wasn't cambodian and his English wasn't great. What I would say is book G Adventures if you are a nervous traveler or want everything done for you. If not do it yourself as you have the freedom to set your own itinerary and meet the people you want to meet.

    1.5 - Rather poor

    The single biggest waste of money in my life. If you are a competent traveler and have any genuine interest in experiencing another country in a respectful and responsible way, you will absolutely not buy a tour package. On a tour of southeast Asia, they charge almost 100USD per day for shoddy hotels, and the sum doesn't include food or all of the tours. Traveling on your own--lavishly--you could spend well under $50 per day. And if you're not a spoiled traveler, you could go on $20 a day, easy, including food, transportation, and lodging. Easily.

    Good basic and fast paced tour of Cambodia and a little bit of Vietnam. The highlight of the trip was our tour guide Bun, who was incredibly knowledgeable as well as being consistently very kind, helpful and organised. I would recommend this tour to other people, especially those on a budget.

    What are people saying about TourRadar?

    • 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.
