We would like to thank Julius for his negotiation with local suppliers to do the upgrades for the hotels and the added meals.
All of the hotels were outstanding ( 5 Star ) and we appreciated having such nicely located hotels in so many cities. The staff members of the hotels were friendly and accommodating. They even help negotiate all of our rides on the Tuk Tuks……quite an adventure for us.
The breakfasts were amazing with so many choices of food. The lunches and dinners were also delicious and we enjoyed the local food. We have, however, not cooked rice since we arrived home but that will change soon.
The transportation was excellent ( air conditioned vans )and the drivers were experienced drivers who maneuvered through traffic that was congested with cars, bikes, motorbikes, motor-scouters, Tuk Tuks and many people.
Jacob, was wonderful and we so enjoyed having him along on our trip. He was attentive to questions and found the answers. He would update us of any changes that were occurring on the trip. If there were any problems Jacob was eager to know about them and would address the hotel or restaurant about the matter. We felt that Jacob was like a family member.
The local guides were excellent. They were knowledgeable and happy and most of them had a great sense of humour. It was fun to see and hear how proud they were of their town, city and country.
We enjoyed all of the cities and places that we travelled. We really liked the overnight cruise aboard one of Paradise Cruise’s luxury junks. The sandy beach and limestone cave full of stalactites and Stalagmites were amazing. Ho Chi Minh City has so much history. We crawled through the CuChi tunnels. Siem Reap was so interesting with the archaeological sites and artifacts in Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom. Every stop/ city had something unique. The royal Grand Palace in Bangkok was spectacular, and the National Museum was informative. We found the long tail boat ride on the Chao Phraya River okay but felt that perhaps it was not the best way to get to our farewell dinner. The farewell dinner was excellent.
The connecting flights within our trip went smoothly and Jacob did a superb job of looking after us.
Thanks again to Laurus Travel for a memorable and fun filled holiday to be talked about for many years.
