Great trip through Asia 2John Murray, NSW, Australia, Jul 2016
Great trip through China, Cambodia and Vietnam. The local guides were fantastic and provided us with so much information in such a friendly and cheerful manner, accomodation was good and the river cruise ships were all so professional and well presented. Would definitely recommend this as a good way to see Asia.
Experienced a wide and diverse slice of China 5Gary & Wendy Terry, VIC, Australia, Sep 2015
The tour was in two parts with the first being China. The group size was 34 which was about optimum size as some buses utilised had only one door exit. The group was comprised of 2/3 Australian nationality however there were 3 couples who had emigrated from the UK. It was interesting that there were about 4 couples who winged about the lack of non Asian ...read more food options which we thought strange as it was obvious that we were touring an Asian country. There were some who also complained about the constant on the move requirements of the tour which again we thought it demonstrated a lack of understanding of the itinerary. We loved the the fact that we were able to experience a wide and diverse slice of China and certainly liked the fact that we were on the go.In particular our tour leader ( Tony) ensured that we we had a wonderful Great Wall experience venturing to a point involving a 1 1/2 hour bus trip necessitating an early departure. A great call on the leaders part as we were one of the first to arrive at this section of the wall. There were grumbles from some tour participants about an early rise, quite unjustified we believe. The Yangtze cruise was excellent but would recommend that all of your future clients be advised of the need to have the upgrade as this is money well spent. The surprise extra on this part of our holiday was the water town that we stayed at which is about 2 hours from Shanhai. We were impressed with our Travelmarvel tour leader who demonstrated a very professional and caring approach to all tour members despite the aforementioned wingers.We thoroughly enjoyed the Vietnam and the Mekong cruise to Siem Reap. The ship was superb in all facets but again you could not be on the advertised 00 deck. We upgraded to deck 1 which would be the minimum to really enjoy the cruise. The elements of the cruise that stood out was the food, the staff and the on shore experiences. The Mekong cruise was special! We should also mention the accommodation in Siem Reap (Shinta Mani) I was moved to write a very favourable TripAdvisor review. In particular we had an airport pickup from the hotel/ resort at 3 pm along with 12 others, all guests were offered a checkout of 3 pm. I have written to Travelmarvel to say how much we appreciated this gesture by the hotel/ resort manager.
