Helen's review for another Explore tour
“I enjoyed the trip although was disappointed that we didn't see the Terraced fields in Northern Vietna. Doing Tai Chi at sunrise on the boat in Halong Bay was magical - a real highlight. Also the cycle ride at Hot An was a fund way to cover a slightly longer distance and see the local crafts. A really good trip and I'm pleased I experienced it.”

Sandra's review for another Explore tour
“The trip was one of my most amazing holidays ever, the wildlife surpassed all expectations, the scenery on mainland Ecuador was excellent.

Despite the start of the rainy season, we were very lucky, the clouds cleared so we could see Cotopaxi and some other volcanoes.

My only criticism, is that the walks on the mainland could have been a little longer!”
