“Mekong River Cruise with Travelmarvel”
- QLD, Australia Jan 2020 2 Helpful Votes

The whole trip was a very enjoyable experience - there is no better way to explore Cambodia and Vietnam than by river boat! Global Journeys made the whole booking process simple and stress free - all information was readily available and any questions I had were answered promptly and professionally by Hannah. I will definitely book future trips through Global Journeys.

Travelmarvel exceeded my expectations. The pre and post accommodation was of a high standard and the cruise itself outstanding. The cabins on La Marguerite were larger than expected and the included excursions extensive. The highlight of the trip was the amazing tour director, guides and crew - all locals with their own stories to tell.

We had many opportunities to visit local communities and explore places outside the normal tourist sites. The tour group (79 people, mainly from Australia and Britain) was divided into three smaller groups for each excursion which made disembarking and embarking the river boat a very organised process. We look forward to future trips with Travelmarvel.

Accommodation was really great on this trip with Travelmarvel. Tour Director Mr Tu was first class, the tour guides he had were very informative and also caring.

“Vietnam to Cambodia on the Mekong River”
- VIC, Australia Jan 2019 4 Helpful Votes

All staff on the boat were very friendly and cooperative. We enjoyed their company and service immensely. The guides were very friendly, helpful and personable throughout the trip. The Shinta Mani Shack in Siem Reap is a really nice hotel.

We were first placed on the lower deck at water level. This smelled so mouldy that we knew as soon as we opened the cabin that we could not stay there. The atmosphere was dank and frankly toxic. At the same moment, a cabin became available on deck 3 which was immediately taken up by another passenger. This left her cabin available which I immediately requested – at an upfront cost of another $1,000 for the upgrade.

We were lucky. Having spoken to some of the other passengers, I think that may well apply to the rest of the lower deck as well. On returning I put a request for a refund of that $1,000 to Travelmarvel, which they honoured immediately, I am happy to say. Overall, the trip had a good mix of activities both on-board and ashore.

“20 Day Wonders of Vietnam and Cambodia”
- QLD, Australia Sep 2018 4 Helpful Votes View Photo

First time traveling with Travelmarvel and would definitely do it again. Guides were excellent as was accommodation, meals and transport. Highlights of the trip for us were Halong Bay and visiting the small villages along the Mekong, where we got to talk to the children learning English at a school. We went in Sept at the end of the wet season and were very lucky because it only drizzled once through the day during our three weeks. Sunsets and night time storms were spectacular.

“A holiday worth repeating”
- QLD, Australia Jul 2018 4 Helpful Votes View Photo

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.
