Superior - This is what we would describe as our standard category. These will be decent 3/4* hotels providing a really good level of service. We would generally expect them to be providing a little something extra, in terms of character, guest experience or facilities too.

All guides were very good, spoke good English and were very knowledgeable. The logistics all worked extremely well: drivers, boatmen etc all did a very good job. We also found that the guides were happy to talk to us on a wide range of issues, including politics!
