“It would be good if the trip notes mention that sacred sites in Vietnam require women to have their shoulders covered and skirts/dresses/shorts to the knees. As we had joined from already travelling for 3 weeks we had to pack lightly and thankfully we had some suitable attire but it would have been culturally insensitive if we didnt - if we had known in advance we would have made sure we included appropriate clothes”

“Our first trip with Explore was to South Africa for our honeymoon and it was fantastic. Out of the many trips we have taken it remains our favourite.
Costa Rica is well up there with a couple of others in second place. A wonderful experience.”
