Outstanding trip! I wish the Halong Bay portion was an extra day! That was the highlight for me!

This was a nice trip. The guides were knowledgeable about history,flora and fauna and were quick to respond to questions. Accomodations were good and food was good.

This trip was wonderful. We were met by our Tour Director "T", who took wonderful care of us from the start. He showed great enthusiasm for his country and its history, took care of any issues which arose, and was easy to understand. He went above and beyond what was required of him. The itinerary was bold, and the weather conditions hot, but the memories outweigh those issues. Flights were well executed, the hotels were beautiful, the food delicious, and the sites visited enthralling. Group size was in the mid-twenties, allowing for room to spread out. Included meals were mostly excellent, with the exception of the food at the farewell dinner at the Cambodian dance show. The show itself was wonderful. All optional tours were well done, and showed us sides of the countries and people we might otherwise not experienced. There were many long walks so be ready for those. Also, it would be nice to include information about the need to wear long pants and shoulder coverings for the temples in Cambodia. Shorts are not OK there. On measure, a trip well worth the money charged. We recommend it.

Just a one word feedback… GREAT

Diane F

Loved this trip! Great group of travelers and "T" was an excellent guide. Hotels were great.

Jeff S

We had a great experience on this trip! Our guide, Hai Ly, was marvelous. Very proud and passionate about his country, and his knowledge is encyclopedic. The hotels were all first class. There were many elegant meals provided. The US dollar goes very far in Vietnam and Cambodia, so pretty much everything is a huge bargain while there. Like the two previous smarTours trips we've taken, they keep you very busy, so much so that we opted to jump off the tour in Hanoi one day just to have time to explore more on our own. All of the destinations were amazing. Saigon and Cambodia were exceptionally hot and humid in April. Our guide did his best to keep us hydrated. If you don't do well in the heat, this trip may not be for you, although Hanoi and Halong Bay were cool and comfortable. The Halong Bay overnight cruise is gorgeous and unforgettable. There's a lot of history about the Vietnam War on the trip. Angkor Wat is something every serious traveler should experience in their lifetime. There were 19 of us on the tour and everyone got along great - wonderful bunch of people. My personal favorite place was Hanoi. The Old Quarter is fantastic and the hotel was right in it - a lovely hotel. If I had it to do over again, I may have opted out of some of the optional tours in Saigon as they were all-day tours which limited our ability to explore the city on our own. The people of Vietnam and Cambodia are wonderful and kind. Saigon is fairly chaotic and in your face, with millions of motor scooters. I found it exhilarating but it's overwhelming for some.


Thank you.

Great Trip

Amazing tour of Vietnam and Cambodia. So many different experiences from the fast paced cities of Saigon and Hanoi to the beautiful towns of Hoi An and Halong bay. In Cambodia the well organized tour of Angor Wat and Thom to the fascinating floating houses. This trip was truly an experience of a lifetime and we would highly recommend this smarTours trip to anyone. You cannot beat the value of everything that was provided from the wonderful tour guides to the beautiful hotels.

I wanted to be sure to write a review about our guide Tommy. We've been on many tours and he is one of the best we've had. His wealth of knowledge is amazing. He looks after his group above and beyond. He's so attentive to details and very personable. Smartours is lucky to have him! Our tour was excellent. A little fast paced at times. A little more leisure time would have been nice. The layover in Shanghai is terrible, but at least having access to the VIP lounge sure helped. Maybe a better airline? All in all, we highly recommend this tour. A great value for the money for sure!


Excellent tour Guide for the entire trip Vietnam & Cambodia (Tommy) Excellent Guide in Cambodia (Dee) Excelent excursions. My favorite was the cable car to Buddha Hand. Very much impressed. Smart Tours gave us a lot of sights to see for our money including a rickshaw ride, boat rides. Hotels were spectacular. Food on tour to Vietnam Restaurants were great. Also enjoyed the food in Cambodia. Also enjoyed going to the caves.


Wonderful tour of Vietnam! Our tour guide was knowledgeable, helpful and experienced. The food and lodging were excellent. There were so many things to see and do in the two weeks we were there it was amazing! I'll travel with SmarTours again. Great value for the money!


It was a great trip and Tommy was a fantastic guide. He went above and beyond by giving each of us a CD of photos he took during our travels and sent additional photos via email. Dee was also a great guide in Cambodia. The nine hour layover in Shanghai was a killer, though the business class lounge made it a bit better.

Wow!!! what an AWESOME trip!!! This is my first SmarTour but I have travelled extensively with other companies and on my own. I've been to so many unique places, like Easter Island, Africa, the Galapagos, and the Amazon, that it is hard to say my favorite trip. These are so unique they stand alone by themselves and have no comparison. Viet Nam and Cambodia are that way, too -- totally unique. Definitely a "Bucket List" trip. I would recommend this tour to anyone. One of the things I liked best was the fact that we got to do more than sit on a bus and sometimes walk around. We took tours by boat in Ha Long Bay, and by cyclo in the Imperial City, by open "taxi" around Hanoi, and by tuk-tuk in Cambodia. Our tour guide, Henry, is the best I've ever seen, and that is saying A LOT.

Deborah F

What an excellent tour! We covered a lot of ground, both via bus and airplane. Great experiences throughout the trip, including sampan rides, horse drawn carriage, Cyclos, and three different boat excursions. Excellent hotels, breakfasts were excellent, especially the Asian offerings (I prefer to dine like a local when I travel). Several very good cultural experiences are included as well as museums, pagodas, and outdoor experiences, too. Guides were first rate, Henry in Vietnam and Seth in Cambodia, added so much to our visit. Practicalities: These tours are fast-paced. You'll need to be able to walk at least a mile at a time in hot conditions on uneven pavement, climb stairs (at the very least, the bus stairs!), get up early and be on time. Best for seasoned travelers used to a fast pace, can keep up with the group, and manage themselves in an independent manner (getting your own medicines if suffering from jet lag, bringing your own water bottle onto the bus each morning and being on time every day, having a cane or walking sticks if you need them, etc.). Work out for at least a month before you depart, wear sensible clothing and shoes, check the weather forecast just before you depart, then be prepared for a lot of "oh, wow!" moments! This is our third smarTours trip; we plan to continue traveling with them because of their great guides, hotels, and experiences.
