 2 Explorers May 2017 - Bhutan

Madam,

We spent a wonderful week in Bhutan, this trip is among the most beautiful that we ever done, and most likely the best. We are happy that Edouard George recommended this trip.

Many thanks for the organization, everything was perfect.

I’d like to point out a few things:

- Except for minor problems in Timphu hotel, every accommodations were very good, especially the one in Punaka.

- The guide was perfect and very cultivated, but sometimes a little too cultivated as he was going maybe too much into details about the temples. But thanks to him, we were able to attend an incredible show in the Panakha Dzung, a great Buddhist celebration with a Buddhist chef and members of the Royal family. We were almost the only tourists.

- The road to go to Phobjikha is beautiful but quite dangerous as a work in progress. It should be finished in a few months.

- We wish we had visited a less touristic market, which would have been nice between the monastery visits.

 

We want to thank you again for organizing this amazing trip. We are very lucky to have experienced Bhutan. Be sure that we will recommend the country and your services to our friends and family

Hi Simone

We just landed from our trip in Laos… It was nothing but happiness!

The organization was perfect, the accommodation was great (Villa Maly and Hotel La Folie), and the guides very professional (especially Tim, a young Lao lady, very nice and dynamic, to be recommended!) and we could not say enough about the country… it’s superb and Lao people are adorable!

Madam, Sir,

Our return back to France went well.

I already conveyed our appreciation to our guide, but I would like to thank you again for this amazing trip. Everything was perfect - your welcoming, the organization, and even the sun in Ha Long Bay.

Just one suggestion: You should advice the hotels and restaurant in SAPA to set up their heater. The atmosphere there was very humid and cold, and taking breakfast or any other meal with a coat is not comfortable.

For the rest, everything was SUPERB, as usual.

As discussed, I will contact Mr. Romon in August to organize our journey in South Korea.

Best regards,

Zoya

2 happy travelers - Feb 2017 - Vietnam

 

Dear Madame,

I would like to thank you for your services during our trip in Vietnam from the 2nd to the 17th of February.

The transportations were on time and easy to spot on our various appointments.

Each guide was there at the right place and time.

The quality of your services was exactly what we expected at all levels.

The trip in itself was well designed and we enjoyed every step of it.

A few things though -

We wish we had a full day at leisure to stroll around in Hanoi.

We would rather have had a city-center hotel in Hoi An.

But, the overall trip leaves an excellent memory and we will definitely recommend your services to others.

 

Regards,

Jeanne

2 hikers November 2016 - Vietnam

 

Dear Nhi,

We are back in Switzerland where winter and snow welcomed us. But our mind is still in Northern Vietnam, where we enjoyed a beautiful trip.

We chose to visit the authentic Vietnam, away from the crowds and close to nature. We are convinced that hiking is the best way to immerse yourself into landscapes and local atmosphere. Your trip suggestions fulfilled perfectly our expectations. Obviously, we could not miss the Halong Bay which marveled us despite the tourists flow… Hanoi and its history also left us a lasting memory.

Everything went perfectly. Our guide Hieu made himself very available and shared his knowledge with us. Thanks to him, we had the opportunity to meet and discuss with local people:  we are very grateful to him for this.

We liked a lot Vietnam; we are hoping to come back one day. We also would like to thank you again for planning our perfect trip.

Best regards,

Isaline and Alain

4 travelers August 2016 – Vietnam, Cambodia

Good morning,

We wanted to thank you for the organization of our stay in Vietnam and in Angkor (Cambodia). The choice of the itineraries, drivers or guides and the hotels were perfects and in many ways, everything went beyond all our expectations. We learnt a lot about the culture and customs of the crossed regions. The Vietnamese’s and Cambodian’s kindness made a lasting impression on us.

We sent you the guest comments by mail that will confirm our complete satisfaction.

Best regards,

Angélique, Anna, Hugo and Philippe P.

9 explorers August 2016 - Vietnam

Dear Mrs Nhi Tran Mr. Edouard George,

We came back home a week ago and wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for a wonderful trip to Vietnam.

Your guiding hands insured that our trip was restful and relaxing. The only surprises we encountered were of pleasant nature. Everything that was on the schedule happened when, where and how you promised it would.

Your special attention to detail, especially to the kosher diet requirements was especially appreciated. I believe there is a whole market here for you to expand into. There are a lot of groups/families that would enjoy this service.

If I may, the only point I would have changed was the charges for water on the Ha Long bay cruise. I understand the need and desire of the cruises to make their money on soft drinks and alcohol. I think charging for water on a cruise is a bit much.  That’s it.

Thank you very much for you kind attention. We will surly recommend you to our friends.

Looking forward to our next Asia trip

All my best,

Dov  T.

1 Traveller June 2016 - North Korea

Hi everyone,
I am sending you this mail to thank you for this incredible journey! I had great time, and   was very pleased to discover North Korea. The program was very well organized and the trip between Pyongyang and the rest of the country was very enjoyable.
The food was out of expectation and the guides were actually superb. I was very glad to meet Edouard George, thank you for this fantastic experience and for all your help.
Cordially yours,

Louis M.

2 Explorers March 2016 - Angkor, Cambodia

Good morning Sir,
After returning in France, we wanted to thank you for organizing our trip to Cambodia. Besides the flowers and the book we went given when we arrived, everything was perfect. We really appreciated the culture of our guide.
If the opportunity arises, we shall not miss to recommend your agency.
Best Regards,

Ms. and Mr. R 

4 pax March 2016 - Vietnam

Hello Marine, Hello Nhi,
After this wonderful trip to Vietnam and returning to Switzerland in the freezing cold weather, we would like to express our feelings.
Our trip started from our first contact, both through your suggestions, your advice and your availability. Although we have an anxious temperament, you gave us confidence, that is why we have chosen your proposal and your agency.

Regarding our trip: what can we say? We are Swiss, I work in a watch company, my wife is a nurse for children and we appreciate what is done well.
Our stay in every way has met our hopes and expectations.
Everything was perfect: the different welcome at the airports, the means of transportation, the selection of restaurants, that have enabled us to discover the different flavors of the Vietnamese cuisine and the hotels that were all perfect and so comfortable. All the proposed activities have been a source of discovery and happiness.
We noticed the mastery and kindness of our different drivers.  They have an immense merit on how they swiftly move in and out of the traffic, which is for us, as Swiss, not accustomed to.

A big thank you to the guides who captivated us about Vietnam, its past and its present.  Thanks to their knowledge, their culture, their gentleness, kindness and availability. A special thank you to Vi, who simply amazed us. There would be so many things to say about our satisfaction and joy to have discovered Vietnam with you, but we simply say: thank you and perhaps, we will see you again for other discoveries!

Cordially yours,

Chantal and Claude

Well done and thank you to Asia Holidays for the quality and organization of their services.  Great quality and personalized service and an unforgettable cruise!

2 pax February 2016 - Sri Lanka

Hello Marine,
In conclusion: it was great and relaxing.
In detail: Mr. Prasad was a charming and careful driver/guide. The hotels were great. Regarding the visits and activities…everything about the “historical sites” were very interesting. For the rest, (‘museum” GEM, tea and spice factory, traditional dances…) were sometimes amusing, sometimes interesting…and sometimes not. But don’t worry, it is part of the game and it was good to let oneself be carried through, step by step.
In short, we had a great stay. Thank you very much for the weather but also for your advice.
I hope we will find ourselves on a next destination soon. If you will go to Hanoi, do not hesitate to let me know.
Sincerely yours,

Olivier S.

9 pax December-January 2016 - Cambodia

 

Hello Marine,

I wanted to write to you since our return from holiday, to thank you for organizing our family trip in Siem Reap. Everything went really well. Your program was well balanced.  Both the elders and children really loved it and were able to follow without being too tired.
The only shortcoming was the strike of the staff at Victoria Angkor Hotel. It made the service a little complicated but the hotel Manager has done everything to compensate this problem by extending commercial attention.
Next year, I would love to propose another trip like this one to my parents and parents-in-law but I still don’t know where.
We would be 9 persons, including 4 elders and 3 children…If you have any suggestions, I would love to travel again through your agency.
Regards,

Noëmie R.

2 pax January 2016 - Vietnam

Hello Marine,
We had a great stay in Phu Quoc.
Beautiful bungalow in a paradise – the beach, restaurant etc.
Friendliness of the staff
Hotel is absolutely pleasant.
Thank you for your help.
We left Vietnam last night (last day of our visa…) and we have arrived well in Phnom Penh. We will try to send you by post the Asia Holidays questionnaire but I already wanted to tell you that we appreciated Mr Ba (the guide in Saigon / Dalat) for his culture and humor, as well as Mr Aie (the guide in Hoi An) for his efficiency and assistance for our transfer to Cambodia. Thank you in advance to let them know.
Again, thank you for your availability and to everyone who took care of us.
Best regards,

Marc & Sophie

2 pax November 2015 – Myanmar

Dear Thomas,
We are now back from our trip in Myanmar. We came back amazed by the friendly people and beautiful scenery.
We have nothing to say about the organization. Everything went smoothly and we thank you for that. The itinerary met our expectations and the trekking was very well organized, with a guide and a cook who were extraordinarily qualified. Again, we want to thank them for their services.
Also, I would like to point out that our different guides along our trip were very competent and incredibly kind. They were always there to help us and answer our questions. Thanks to them, we were able to discover in depth Myanmar and gave us the desire to return and continue to discover this changing country.
Back home, we are following with interest the outcome of the election in Myanmar.  A lot of people should be happy of the result right now!

Dear Marine and Mrs. Nhi,
Thank you very much for arranging such a wonderful vacation at such short notice. Everything was superb from start to finish. Never a glitch! Our guide, Hung, was informative, professional and fun. Very enjoyable to be with. And the driver for most of the trip, Khanh could not have been better! Everything good that is said about Asia Holidays is true!!
Thank you again.

2 pax October 2015 Myanmar “Julia and Mike visiting Myanmar from the UK”

A once in a lifetime experience. Because of the tour guides and their enthusiasm we learned the true nature of this wonderful country and its people. The boat crew were also very friendly and keen to talk about their country.
Having two days for personal time worked very well and we really enjoyed the two days at Ngapali Beach as a perfect end to a perfect holiday.
Julia.

2 pax July 2015 South Korea (French and american)

We had great time in Korea! Aurélien – your Country Manager - was very nice and welcoming (he is a keeper!). Then our guide Mr Ryan organized a nice trip for us. We did a lot of visits, laughed a lot, ate and drank well.
Anyways, it was a fantastic trip. A big thank you to your team for this great adventure. If you are around this week, let’s have lunch or coffee!
Kiss,
Nicole.

13 pax Charity Trip to France July 2015 “Le Sourire Levant” Association

The French association Le Sourire Levant set up a “holiday” action in July 2015, aiming at offering a real holiday trip to France to 13 young people from Vietnamese ethnic minorities. Those young people from Kontum area in the Highlands have been invited to spend 3 weeks in Roanne region to discover the French culture. The association Le Sourire Levant, supported by the association “Poussières de Vie” (located in Vietnam), worked hand in hand with our agency to make those 13 children travel from their origin province to Lyon city in France.
A great experience for our agency which participated to this meaningful project with gladness.

10 pax Trip to Vietnam from  20 March to 4 April 2015

Meudon group gives it opinion
This trip was a success and we congratulate Asia Holidays for the organization. Whatever its advantages and disadvantages, the trip was exciting from the beginning to the end.
We all enjoyed

  • The choice of the southern route to the north, tours of monuments and sites, walks and the overall balance of the different activities
  • The duration
  • The quality of guides and drivers and their professionalism
  • The logistics that never made default
  • Overall - especially our wives - we found very pleasant the feet and hands massage
  • The choice of accommodations, hotels and resorts, often of high quality, original and enjoyable
  • The quality and often the excellence of Vietnamese cuisine.
  • We appreciated the availability of water and wipes especially when they were refreshed during our stay in Saigon.
  • We especially appreciated the sampan rides in the silence of oars.

4 pax Trip to Cambodia and Laos from 29 March to 10 April 2015

Hello
We are back in France, everything went well and a special mention for the two guides " Nam " in Cambodia,  "Boon" in Laos, they both were very attentive, resourceful and available so thank you for the good performance of Asia holidays with a nod to Marine Herisset . Hotels / lodges on the Mekong were really good
Two Comments:
1- Classy Hotel in Battambang : factory of Chinese tourists ...
2- Information for return Ubon Bangkok on the last day stated "shuttle novotel Level 2 door 4 " ... yes, but we came to another airport Duong Meang ! Finally we found with no difficulty the free bus shuttle to the airport Surabami (?)

2 pax Trip to Vietnam from 8 to 13 March 2015

Hello Marine
I hope you are doing well. I have not had the opportunity to come back to you on the journey of my parents early in March in Hanoi and Halong Bay. They were very pleased with the organization, tours, guides and hotels (a small exception I think). So thank you very much, it was a great experience and they keep great memories and were keen to tell you!
Thank you,
See you soon I hope

4 pax Trip to Vietnam and Cambodia from 6 to 23 March 2015

Hello Mrs Nhi Tran,
A quick note to tell you our satisfaction about this trip to Vietnam and Cambodia. We would have liked a little more sun in Halong Bay but the day aboard the junk Pelican and the discovery of the site were nevertheless wonderful. Muong Khuong in the morning market was very informative. The choice of the sites visited was relevant. On the whole stay hotels and restaurants have chosen fully satisfied us.
The four guides we had were different but each with his personality has allowed us to better know the country and its people with a special mention for the guide in Siem Reap who initiated us into the mysteries of the Angkor temples. Driving in Vietnam a bit surprised us, but our different drivers reassured us. The guides such as drivers were on time and very available.
L’Amant cruise was a little short, we have not had enough time to fully enjoy this moment of calm on the boat. Thank you for the flawless organization, we will certainly recommend your agency to our friends who wish to visit Vietnam and Cambodia.
Sincerely.
Thierry

2 pax Trip to Phu Quoc from 26 February to 6 March 2015

2 pax Trip to Bali from 16 to 22 February 2015

Dear Edouard,
We came back from Bali, and I wanted to tell you that we were very happy, and thank you for the perfect organization. Widdy was a SUPER guide (one of the best we have had with you, if not the best), and the driver was not only nice, but also drove very well. The choice of the two hotels was also perfect. In the villa Balquisse, we were “at home " ... except that it was naturally much more beautiful. Having these two very different stays made the longest and most interesting week. At jimbaran we rented a scooter, which enabled us to discover beautiful little beaches. We went to dinner to Ayana Rock Bar.
So it was again a perfect trip thanks to Asia Holidays!
A very big thank you.
Sincerely
J-A.DR

2 pax Trip to Cambodia from 16 to 26 February 2015

Mrs. Nhi hello,
Our stay in Cambodia is over. We took great pleasure and thank you for the excellent organization. The drivers have been "ace drivers" because driving in this country is not an easy task. Especially, were very happy with the Phnom Penh guide who speaks French very well and tried to increase vocabulary to our touch.
The hotels were fine except that of Kep held by a French and who does not deserve 3 stars. Not to recommend for your future clients. We made some remarks to your representative in Siem Riep.
I also wanted to thank you for the gift we have received upon arrival. Can you pass on our thanks to your representative in Siem Riep because I forgot to do so.
The return to work will be difficult.
Thank you again
