This trip of ours was so well arranged by the Threeland Travels , our correspondence was handled by Ms Stella based in Vietnam, the day we landed at Siem Reap on August 5th, till we left back from Hanoi on August 16, the whole arrangements including the hotel stay, the transportation , the daily itinerary all was done so meticulously.

The guides in all the three countries Somnang in Cambodia , Bounpone Liam in Laos and Chuang in Vietnam were very knowledgeable and so nice to get along

Interesting and insighful tour

Our guide did a great job of explaining the history and culture of the temples we were visiting, as well as that of the country of Cambodia itself. She also did a good job of checking in on us and how long we wanted to stop at each place based on how tired we was or how hot the sun was shining at that point. She was also very patient and helpful about taking pictures for us. We go on holiday on September 3rd then arrive back to Hanoi on September 12th, everything was terrific. Thanks to Ms Nara and Mr Vu Chinh so much!

This was the best tour my wife and I had during our time in Laos - Cambodia - Vietnam. Our guide was excellent and had a great knowledge of the temples we visited and was only too pleased to answer all the questions we had. We were not rushed and to stand in an area that was 900 years old was truly humbling. I'm especially amazed by the compelling outlook of Vietnam. We highly recommend this tour to all.
