Mekong River Cruise with Travelmarvel   4 , QLD, Australia, Jan 2020
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 more 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   5 , VIC, Australia, Jan 2019
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 more 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     4 , QLD, Australia, Sep 2018
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 more 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     5 , QLD, Australia , Jul 2018
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 more guides were a wealth of knowledge. We would do it again, if the world was smaller.
Essential Vietnam & Cambodia with Travelmarvel     3 , NSW, Australia, Jan 2018
Excellent accommodation. Local tour guides with very good English and local knowledge. No worries about arrangements or schedules. A very enjoyable holiday.
Great Experience   1 , VIC, Australia, Aug 2017
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!
First Cambodian Experience   3 , VIC, Australia, Aug 2017
Fantastic trip. Having travelled Asia many times including Vietnam 10 times this was our first trip on the River Cruise 7 days and Cambodia. River cruise was a 9.5 out of 10. Great everything including cruise, meals, excursions and time on board. I am ex Navy so having beautiful in cabin bathrooms and large beds great. Would highly recommend. Only issue more we had was hot days sometimes the aircon cut out mid afternoons but after resets no problem. Cambodia a great place with nice people. Extremely sad visiting the killing fields but a must just to see what these people went through.
Wonderful Trip   2 , NSW, Australia, Feb 2017
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 more ship were faultless. The food served was the cuisine of the two countries we visited. Preparation and service was outstanding.
Wonders of Vietnam   2 , ACT, Australia, Jan 2017
We can't speak highly enough of the service and program for our Wonders of Vietnam and Cambodia holiday. I might just add that we nearly had a disaster before we even left due to us miss-reading the departure time and date. The ticket said Saturday 0.35 and for some reason we saw this as being late on the Saturday night not the Friday night. Luckily more we worked this out on Friday afternoon with enough time to get ourselves properly organised. This was no fault of Travel Marvel but perhaps on future occasions you could point out this to Canberra departures as staff at the airport said this wasn't the first time it had happened. I can tell you that as we sat in our seats on the Singapore Airlines flight taking off, we heaved a big sigh of relief. That said, the rest of the trip went smoothly and we had a great time.

I can't give enough praise to our tour guide Han, who was brilliant. He was polite, always had a smile on his face and frequently went out of his way to help fellow travellers who were not as mobile as some of us. His knowledge and advice throughout was faultless. Nothing was too much trouble for him. Much the same can be said of the individual local guides. Their knowledge went a big way to making each trip rewarding and they even showed expertise in taking photographs for individuals. As a photographer myself I also appreciated our guide at Siem Reap pointing out several vantage points, which I might not have seen, to get the best shots.

Our accommodation and travel arrangements throughout were excellent. Our trips on Ha Long Bay and the Mekong were especially exciting and the food and service on both were top class as our scales showed on return to Canberra. Our thanks to you Yvonne at Global Journeys and the rest of the Travel Marvel crew. I can tell you that we will certainly, and have already, recommended your organisation to friends and family and will continue to do so. Thanks again.
