What our clients are saying about their family touring holidays
“First class in every way”
This was my first coach tour of any kind, and I was not sure what to expect... Let me say that this was one incredible vacation - thanks CIE for a wonderful experience. This was first class in every way, with an itinerary I could never have put together on my own. It all went flawlessly thanks to the efforts of our incredible tour director and driver, Mr. David Darby. I don't think you could find a better man for the job, he had many great stories, lots of local information, and saw to our every ...read more need and request... a true professional who loves his job and knows how to take care of people. (The brand new motor coach wasn't bad either!) Many thanks.
“Overall we very much enjoyed the trip.”
Overall we very much enjoyed the trip - we had a good group, and the country is amazing. The only thing that let it down was the standards of maintenance in the accommodation - which were basic issues that should have been easy and inexpensive to fix - and a bit of a lack of leadership from the guide. Better information of availability of card payments in the hotels would also have been useful. (Review provided by Explore Worldwide.)
“Saigon to Bangkok Explorer”
The Phnom Penh - Siem Reap trip could be replaced with a flight. Loved the food but would have appreciated a couple of more upmarket recommended options to try out modern local cuisine too. Binh, our guide in Vietnam and Cambodia, was exceptionally good. (Review provided by Explore Worldwide.)
“Family Atlas Adventure”
Have not travelled with explore for a number of years but the experience was just as I remembered everything sorted and feel you really get under the skin of a country . (Review provided by Explore Worldwide.)
