  • Gabriela Michalek's review about another World Expeditions tour
    5.0 - Excellent

    Very well planned, everything worked well, only on the day of arrival in Saigon I would skip the visit to the craft beer pub and instead go for a nice and authentic place for lunch as we arrived hungry after the flight from Danang. Also I would propose a... Read more

Questions & Answers

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

    • I have not been in a group tour, do you think it's a good idea to have this trip?

      We recognise that many of the travellers have not been on a ‘group trip’ before. You can rest assured that the trips are flexible and allow you to do your thing within the framework of the itinerary. The tour operator won't attempt to instill a ‘group ethos’ and fully recognise your needs as an individual.

    • What is the group size on each tour?

      The maximum group size on most trips is 16 – an ideal size to ensure minimum impact travel to the areas in which the tour operator operates.

    • Is the single supplement a compulsory thing on this tour?

      There is a single supplement for this tour for an additional cost and is not compulsory on this tour. Should you choose to share accommodation you will be paired with another traveller of the same sex.

    Review.io logo What are people saying about TourRadar?

    • Leslie3rd September 2018
      It is too bad there is no 6 or 8 star rating available. 5 isn't really good enough for TourRadar. This enterprise surpasses even the most stringent, high-bar criteria for excellence of customer service. These people are consistently, constantly, on top of your tour itinerary, where you are are in the process, your current status and your situation, they answer the phone on the 2nd or 3rd ring, I'M NOT KIDDING, nd when they pick up they already know who you are, what your tour and status is, and they instantly produce precise answers and solutions to your questions or problems in a matter of seconds. I don't know who the competition is for this outfit but my advice to them is, give up. Go find another line of business. You will never catch up with the platinum customer service these people provide.
