4.9/5.0 | Excellent

An interesting insight into the history and culture of Cambodia and Vietnam which was full-on from beginning to end. Both of our guides were informative and helpful.
We would have preferred a little more free time to explore ourselves and particularly the chance to have chosen our own restaurant on a couple of evenings as the lunches and dinners quickly became very repetitive and rather bland having clearly been toned down to the point where we didn't really feel that we had experienced the local cuisine.
Halong Bay was stunning and the boat and crew were excellent but we had expected more cruising and so would have preferred to spend a second night on board.
The hotels were generally of a good standard although those in Hue and Hoi An dropped below this level (a hotel with no bar!)

This was a really good tour, well planned, with good information beforehand, meet and greet worked well, and guides were first class. In the time available, we hit as many of the high spots in Cambodia and Vietnam as can be experienced at a reasonable pace.

It was the third tour with TopAsiaTour & once again the whole tour was amazing. Guides as usual were extremely knowledgeable, and helpful & nothing too much trouble. The whole itinerary from start to finish was very full-on, varied, and interesting having the whole group involved at some time. We were also given s in each country. Every day brought a new highlight & experience.

Angkor was amazing and Cambodia very interesting. Most of the places in Vietnam were very good and Halong Bay spectacular. The tour was well organised and the guides very friendly and knowledgeable. Some of the hotels were excellant but some could have been better, but, they were all clean well looked after and in very good locations. The food was generally very good except for the odd occasion and at times a bit too much of the same quisine but to be fair we did have some different meals offered on the tour.

My husband and I enquired about the tour's in Cambodia. One of them stood out for both of us. We went through everything and we decided to go ahead and book. The process was simple. Everything was done within a few minutes. Can't wait to go to Cambodia.
Thank you for all your help.

Well-organized, varied tour. Hotels and restaurants were excellent. We traveled in a comfortable air-conditioned coach with a skilled and careful driver. The tour guide Mr. Vuttha Dam was first class and spoke excellent English, coping well with UK and Australian accents and dialects. He was kind, considerate, and very knowledgeable. Giving factual information as well as personal experience of growing up and living in Cambodia.

A great overall trip, we were able to see the countries and learn a lot of the history in the areas. The highlights for me were the personal encounters with the local people and being able to see how they live.

When I was researching potential tours of Southeast Asia, I was looking for Thailand (Bangkok and Chiang Mai specifically) and Cambodia (Siem Reap/Angkor Wat specifically). The other destinations on this tour were just added bonuses. I am so happy that I chose this tour; it took me to places that I have never gone to -- like Luang Prabang which I had never heard of -- even though I consider myself to be a savvy traveler. I am happy that I went to Vietnam to learn about that country's perspective on history and to marvel at the beauty of Halong Bay. This particular tour offered the right mix of culture, history, escorted adventure, and individual discovery. I highly recommend it

The guides were polite, courteous, knowledgeable, and had good fun. They were happy to fit in a few extra stops/sights that customers were keen to visit. Great accommodation and a wide range of activities, sights and experiences provided. Excellent experience all around.

Excellent trip. Great variety of activities, excellent tour leaders explaining the history of the country and region as well as temples visited. Would highly recommend to other travellers.

Our 8-day trip with Top Asia Tour to Cambodia was amazing. Savy our tour guide took us to Angkor Thom, Bayon Temple and Elephant Terrace, Angkor Wat. All Temples were remarkable. Banteay Srei Temples, Ta Prohm Temple (where Tomb Raider was filmed) and Ta Keo Temple. All were incredible sights to experience. Toured a bit of Cambodia as we went to the Tonle Sap Lake to Battambang and to Phnom Penh. We also enjoy our time in Vietnam for 7 days from Ho Chi Minh to Hanoi, which went smoothly and enjoyable. I’m Appreciative to Top Asia Tour for putting this trip together for us to enjoy

This was a great trip full of interesting people and places. It was well run and organised, so that as a single traveller I felt safe and supported throughout. The activity levels were true to form and for anyone wanting to complete an active holiday ........enjoy!

This was my third tour. As a single traveller I always feel safe and welcomed. Amazing to see three countries in two weeks. The guides were exceptional.

This is an action packed adventure tour that goes off the beaten track to experience the people and culture of Laos and Cambodia. The support vehicle is peace of mind and always there if you need it. We enjoyed a couple of unique experiences away from the crowds that were real highlights of travelling with this tour operator.

A marvelous tour through Cambodia & Vietnam, going to all the best sites and with excellent guides who were passionate about their countries, especially Sokhoeun Bout in Cambodia who was brilliant. We really enjoyed our time with TopAsia Tour.
Feb 11 ,2019
We had an amazing tour guide, Jenny, who had a fantastic knowledge of the country and made sure that we were able to enjoy every aspect of the tour. She was supported by a brilliant driver who transported us to all parts of the country in a very safe manner.
The tour provided a great balance of the major tourist sites together with the chance to see local people running their businesses and glimpsing how they lived.
Nov 30 ,2018
We thought the tour was well-planned and organised. We enjoyed eating most meals in local restaurants. Yes, we would consider TopAsiaTour tours again.
We found all three guides very good, they were informative and genuinely interested in telling us about their respective countries.

Tour guide was amazing. Very knowledgeable and couldn't do enough to help. Good itinerary although some long drives on poor roads to see very little. Sihanoukville is a building site and lots of noise by the hotel so not the relaxing beautiful beach day expected although I appreciate Top Asia Tour have no control over this.

The whole holiday went very well. The flight was very good and we had no problem changing in Hanoi to fly on to Siem Rep. We were met at the airport and taken to our hotel.
The guides in Cambodia and Vietnam were both excellent. Tidily dressed, spoke clearly and obviously knowledgeable.
The content of the tours was as described and was well organised. We all had a great time with Top Asia Tour.
