Trip to CambodiaAsia Authentic travel prepared a good itinery, Eric our coordinator is a marvel, he is very responsive, helpful and was available at a message throughout the day.

Trip to CambodiaI am very happy with the service provided...the guide and the driver too good ....Hotel is OK. Overall it was a wonderful trip for my family...thanks
Trip to VietnamWe had a great time at Vietnam and Cambodia. Everything went as per the plan. Kudos to the travel agent - Rosey from “Sviet travels”. I wish the hotels could have been more better. I am sure there were lot better hotels. Specially for people traveling from India, please make sure it is of US or Continental type. We did not get sumptuous breakfast at the hotel. It was a hotel more for the local population. Our stay in the Cruise at Halong Bay.

Trip to CambodiaHi, I planned a 10 days trip with Kyork Travel agent- Ratana and Travel Triangle agent - Karan , for Vietnam and Cambodia. The planning was seamless, they talked to me to understand my requirements and quickly created an itinerary for me. We went through a couple of round of revisions in those itineraries which were quickly reflected to the shared pdf. The communication was very apt and direct. I got detailed plan and requisite documents list before the travel. At the location as well the services were impeccable. The package that we booked included tour agents and they were very cordial and welcoming. We were really happy with the trip and the way it was planned with us. Thanks Karan and Ratana for your amazing assistance. I would definitely recommend KYork and Travel Triangle.

Trip to CambodiaLVP Travel is extremely professional and were able to arrange a great tour for us in Cambodia. They were always available on WhatsApp and answered all my queries before I was able to make a decision to book. I will give them a 10/10 on their service. Here are a few things that I would like LVP to improve : 1. Cambodia itinerary: Please have a Cambodian travel guide chart out the itinerary. On day one we were told that the itinerary that was agreed upon will not be possible in one day and we had to truncate the number of places which we could visit. The second day was relatively free. I would have appreciated more insight into what we can visit within our limited time and if we are visiting the best places. 2. Your price is high. I booked two separate tickets with LVP and would have expected a discount on the price. Once I reached Siem Reap I realized that I may have paid too much for two days worth of travel. Nevertheless we had an amazing time in Siem Reap and without LVP we could not have imagined traveling to Cambodia. I shall definitely recommend LVP and Ms. Thuy to my friends and family for Cambodia. Regarding Travel Triangle - I will give them a 4/10 on our Cambodia Package. The representative Dimple Ranaut is extremely unprofessional and discourteous. Without LVP Travel's constant communication, I shall never have booked this tour with Travel Triangle. This representative called at odd times on whatsapp, threatened that the price will go up if I did not pay before a certain date, did not respond go to my queries. When I asked to speak to a senior agent at Travel Triangle, she put her colleague on the line, who was equally incompetent. I am baffled that a company would treat a customer who gave them a business of more that $2000 this way. A word of advice - other than matching customers to agents, travel triangle must also ensure the customer is getting a good value for their money. In my case, the agent refused to even talk about the price with the agent. During the same time I booked a Nepal tour with another agent of travel triangle and he did his best to negotiate with the agent and get me the best price.
