I felt that we didn't miss a thing in our travels. If we skipped something, we would have missed something well worth experiencing.

This trip far exceeded my expectations. The tour was very well organized, our leader was amazing, and our group got along fantastically. G Adventures made sure we got to see all of the most interesting and culturally significant aspects of each city, and I left feeling extremely satisfied with my experience in Asia.

I thought that the tour was an amazing insight into the Cambodian people. I came thinking that I would learn about the country, and its history with Angkor, and Bo brought a side to the country and the tour that I could have never experienced on my own. He brought us experiences that were tailored to our interests and tried at ever turn to help us experience the life of the people. I thought that was a very special gift and I will treasure it always.

I have to be honest that I was skeptical when I signed up for a trip that focused primarily on Cambodia because I did not know what to expect, but I am so happy that I did! I came away from this trip so pleasantly surprised and impressed with Cambodia, from the buildings in Phnom Penh to the temples in Siem Reap to the Cambodian people themselves. Traveling with G Adventures allowed me to do things I never would have even thought of on my own and I met people on this trip that I plan on staying in touch with for good. I cannot wait to go on another G Adventures trip next year.

Overall was fantastic. G Adventures should really do more marketing in the USofA. Or pay me, because I've been doing a lot of marketing for them since ;>

This was my fifth tour with G Adventures. Angkor Wat was great and exceeded my expectations. Local tour guides were excellent. Too much time was spent on land travel between destinations.

I think G Adventures gets it right as far as the balance between structured activities and free time goes. I also liked that we used many modes of transportation to move from place to place. The smaller groups are also a huge advantage!

Wonderful itinerary. Loved Cambodia in general, Angkor especially. Enjoyed boat ride to Phnom Penh. Could easily have spent another day in Angkor area--perhaps a flight to Bangkok, eliminating that awful bus ride could have allowed for another day in siem Reap area.
