- Flights and airport transfers were well organised and efficient.
Guides were welcoming and friendly. They were extremely knowledgeable about their country and its people and culture.
The itinerary covered a wide variety of opportunities, interests and excursions. We had a very diverse group and the guides tried hard to cater for all needs!
We went on some of the explore optional excursions and these were well led and organised, additional guides were used who were experts in their field.
Accommodation was comfortable, beds were very good and it was lovely to have a few hotels with pools to cool down in after a long dusty day of travel.
Would suggest that the Phnom Penh orientation is done by another means than on foot. It didn't really seem to work as the place is so big!
The places we ate at were lovely but we were often put in a back room where it was just the group, it would have been lovely to mix with locals more, or just a place with more atmosphere.
We chose this holiday because of its optional nature and knew that there would be times when we would want to do our own thing. We're not sure whether the guides are on commission for the number of group members they sign up to the optional excursions (?) and at times it would have been helpful to have alternative options as well as cheaper options which didn't always involve a pre- planned lunch or dinner at the end. To avoid misunderstanding it would be good if you could stress to guides the optional nature of the holiday.
