Trip to VietnamThough the trip was good, hotels decent, we are a tad bit disappointed with the Travel agent Bamboo Hat. In Cambodia everything was perfect. Our coordinator and guide Mr. Sou Wat was there and kept us well informed about our schedule and was there with us till we got into the airport. It was the personal touch which made all the difference in leaving us with pleasant memories. Unfortunately, the personal touch was missing in Vietnam. We did not meet any representative from Bamboo Hat through the entire trip in Vietnam. Since Ms. Sophie had some family emergency, she could not be available, but someone else from the agency could have done the needful. Secondly, we wanted our separate transport and not been made part of a group. The impression we had that that it would be separate except while going to Halong. Traveling with a group is restrictive and not what we prefer. Again I will refer to Cambodia where we had our exclusive vehicle. However if I ignore my grievances, I would like to say that except for a couple of instances, things were pretty well organized, the vehicles good, food good, guides excellent especially Mr. Anh and Mr. Tranh who were very informative. Jerry and Shon were good too.
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 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. Some of the tour guides were rushed and bought us back to the hotel by noon. Nevertheless, it was an amazing trip, very well planned. Thanks, Eric!! Halong bay tour
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.
