Rebecca's review for another Explore tour
“This trip was amazing and definitely worth the cost. The variety of activities provided made it totally memorable.

The only think I would possibly change would be to fly back down from Chiang Mai to Bangkok rather than taking the overnight train again.”

“A very good trip. My first ever cycling holiday of any kind and I was very impressed overall. The cycling itinerary was about right given how hot the weather was (30 C). If it had been cooler then I would probably have wanted a few more miles every day.”

“Excellent trip, with an exceptionally good leader, Wit.The local guides in Cambodia were also very good, and it was extremely powerful (and moving) to hear their personal recollections of the Pol Pot era”
