“Just on the cycle ride perhaps a few more breaks to drink water. Especially for us Brits who are not so used to the temperatures. ”

“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”

Peter's review for another Explore tour
“I think Explore should provide transport to the airport at the end of the trip on the same basis as transfers are provided on arrival. Our group had a number of different flight times through the day and some of us had a choice of spending most of the day at Cancun airport or incurring additional expense - the more so because of the distance we were staying from the airport”
