Great tour guides and tour director. Fantastic booking experience with Global Journeys. February was a perfect time to visit Vietnam and Cambodia. The weather was hot but not unbearable and no rain. Travel Marvel were also wonderful, we have travelled with them before, and will travel with them whenever possible. The accommodation and service on the ship were faultless. The food served was the cuisine of the two countries we visited. Preparation and service was outstanding.

Angkor Wat was the highlight of the trip. Amazing place and loved Siem Reap and Phonm Pehn. Could have spent an extra day at Siem Reap. Tour guides were all great, their personal stories made the trip. Food and wine was wonderful as was the service. Would recommend the trip to my friends and family.

Everything was great, accommodation in 2 hotels and on La Marguerite, staff were friendly and helpful, and keen to exercise their English, guides were very knowledgeable and amusing. Weather was hot and humid but we expected that in the rainy season. Overall, a most enjoyable trip.
