Vietnam and Cambodia are realising the value of the tourist dollar and are becoming the next 'must visit' world tourist destinations. This Travelmarvel tour and cruise package enabled us to experience significantly more of the sights and culture than we could have arranged privately. The day trips from the cruise boats were well organised and the tour guides were a wealth of knowledge. We would do it again, if the world was smaller.
Couldn't fault the cruise, comfy accommodation, great food & wine, pleasant service and cruise director was fabulous. He had a tough time with sick people. Very happy all round, even the weather was good!
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.
Overall the trip was very nice and enjoyable. Lovely boat and the hotels were in good location. Tour guides were excellent and had really good sense of humour. Great choice of food on the boat. This was my first cruise and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you Travelmarvel and Yvonne, I will certainly book my next holiday with you.
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.
We could not fault anything on this Travelmarvel trip. We arrived in Saigon earlier than the other travellers on our tour, but the guide was waiting at the airport to transfer us to hotel - no dramas. Hotel accommodation in both cities - Saigon and Siem Reap was excellent. Every day our Tour Manager gave an informative and sometime humorous talk about the following days activities. Information given covered all scenarios and took into account the physical and emotional capabilities of all travellers of all ages. The La Marguerite was sensational. It was luxurious and the customer service was second to none. The staff became our friends by the end of the trip. Every time we left our room, housekeeping staff would come in a tidy up, though this was slightly uncomfortable at first - we grew to love this. Many of the other guests on the tour were 10-15 years older than us - some were older. We wondered, at the beginning if we would find anything in common with these people - however, we absolutely loved everyone's company and have made some lovely friends as well. All of the 'day-trips' were well organised, informative and interesting. Absolutely loved everything about this trip. Would book with Travelmarvel again in a heartbeat!
We cannot fault this holiday. From the booking to the receipt of our pre-holiday pack, all was handled professionally. From the moment we disembarked overseas to the time we were dropped back at the airport for our return journey all details were handled exceptionally well. Very professional, slick operation. We felt very safe, very looked after and enjoyed our time immensely. Well done to all!
We had a wonderful trip and thoroughly enjoyed the experience in Vietnam and Cambodia. Everything was so well organised. Thank you Yvonne for your time and patience with us in our booking. The tour guides were all first class and nothing was missed. The accommodation at the Grand in Saigon and the Cambodian Hotel were just fabulous. The Marguret was a beautiful boat to travel up the Mekong. Meals were beautiful. Maria, our table waitress was so lovely. She was very attentive and we wanted to bring her home! We will look at another trip in next couple of years. Thank you once again for a wonderful trip.
This holiday was an amazing journey of knowledge, history, fun people (the crew were outstanding) and some confronting issues (the Killing Fields). Angkor Wat was truly mind blowing in all its splendour. The boat was lovely, the food yummy (more Vietnamese please). We met some really great people, whom we hope will remain long term friends. This trip was recommended to us by friends and we would certainly do the same to anyone who asks.
We couldn't have been happier that we chose Global Journeys, right from the first enquiry the team showed perfection, nothing was too much trouble. Comparing it to other companies our money for value you were outstanding. The whole trip was first class. Our tour manager, Son, was SO GOOD, he went out of his way for many. All of our group were so impressed with him - he certainly made the whole experience for our group! We would certainly talk to you about our next holiday. Keep up the good work.
A great trip that exceeded expectations. There was a good variety of food on the river cruise, always something different. The tour guide was professional and friendly and always keen to get feedback about day tours.
