    5.0 - Excellent

    Amazing country! Guide made all the difference! and i loved how diverse the group was. We had people from all around the world - UK, Canada, US, Argentina, NZ, Australia, Mexico, and Italy! Another amazing experience with Geckos!!! Accommodation was great and in the middle of all the action. I love the times our guide took us to his favorite local spots every place we went - Panha was the man! ALSO having taken buses across borders before in SE Asia, seen all the scams, it was nice to have Panha literally walk us through the entire border crossing to avoid the hassle. SO WORTH IT!

    If you are looking to spend 2/3 of you holiday on a bus travelling from one dirty overpriced hotel to another the please book this tour! You can defiantly do this trip by yourself for much cheaper. The extra guidance you expect by booking on a tour is not there - our tour guide was not at all helpful, he was rude and put a sour tone to the whole tour

  • Can you help us with our visas if needed?
