Memorable parts? There were many, I would pick Ninh Binh as a fantastic example of Vietnamese landscape. My kids would probably pick the Vespa adventures tour in Ho Chi Min City and my wife the Surnise Hotel in Hoi An. Tips? I would suggest to have an idea of the itinerary and the type of trip and then contact a tour operator with a strong knowledge of the country. Tips are invaluable if traveling for the first time there. I also found extremely useful having a local guide and... (more)Ezio La Rosa

The trip was perfect and as we were a private group we were able to "tweak" the itinerary to suit us. For example adding in an extra day in Pokhara and then rafting part way down the Lower Seti added a lot to the adventure. The road to Chitwan... (more)Richard Miles

The best memory was the view of the surrounding area from our room. The 360 degree view was just stunning that even the stormy weather failed to spoil. It was an excellent vacation as our hosts made sure that all of our needs were meet. James gave us great instructions for the walks that we went on. (more)Margaret Farmer
The wonderful view from our room, 360 degrees all round. The excellent local knowledge for easy walking trails, starting from the front gate. The ease of transport with local buses, or the hosts friendly 'taxi' service. The unique breakfast, with a wide and daily changing range of food. The ever so friendly helpful advice of where to go and how to get there. (more)Stephen Butler
