Customer Feedback
Just back from Cambodia and Vietnam and just had the best 3 weeks of my life. I can't thank you enough... I've been home 24 hours and if I could back my bag and fly to Siem Reap right now to start it all again I would. I could bore you now with every little detail but I'm sure you know it all inside out anyway. I'm not a traveller having only been to Europe and America in the past but I'm an Asian convert now. I have never felt so welcomed and secure abroad before. The Cambodian people are the most gentle creatures with the greatest respect for each other, they humbled me.
