Thank you for arranging the pick ups in Hanoi – Hung, our tour guide from Hanoi, greeted us at the airport which was great. We all loved her and thought she was the best guide we had. Thank you also for arranging for us to stay in the hotel in Siem Reap till we left for the airport around 6:30pm. We loved that hotel around the pond and lush surroundings. It was great to get some relaxation there. All the hotels were great (except maybe Halong Bay- although our room was good) but the one in Siem Reap was special. It was a very smooth trip-very well organized-great restaurants; a bit too hectic for me but I opted out when I wanted to –especially in the very hot sun in Siem Reap-38 degrees. Thank you for all the work you put into this.
