I am pleased to tell you that I enjoyed the trip very much. I was very pleased with how smoothly everything went. It actually worked out very well having local guides at each destination instead of having one 'national' guide for the entire time. Upon arrival at each place the local guide was there to take care of all details.

Helping people experience the best of a destination is a reward in itself, but we never get tired of hearing feedback from happy travellers.
I have nothing but praise for your Cambodian driver and Sam, both of whom did an excellent job. From the point of view of a tourist, I suggest you make the crossing [at Along Veng] one of your standard routes (if only for slightly mad people like me). Not only is it something very different, but the village of Anlong Veng is also worth seeing as an unspoiled example of Cambodian country life. . . .OK I could go on for hours, but I won't. Just let me say guys this year you surpassed yourselves.

Mr Kong Souen understood our limited time here and did exactly what we needed. Could not have asked for a better guide!
Jamie & Damon Derrick
Courteous, knowledgeable and friendly. Mr Ratanak’s special knowledge of language and sites made our trip unique. He is very good at photography and always knew how to make a special shot of a location. Amazing intro to Cambodia—we saw a lot and learned a lot—everyone tried hard to make sure we were happy.

I loved Stung Treng!! Wish I had had one more day there. The trekking in Cambodia was also very good. It was very authentic, non-touristy . . . . It was a great experience because of the remote location and the unspoiled atmosphere of it. I made my way on to Sen Monorom (Mondulkiri). This was a great place. I loved the waterfalls around Sen Monorom. Bou Sra waterfall was really spectacular. We hiked to the bottom of the lower falls, having to hold on to bamboo it was so steep and slippery!! Thanks again for arranging all of this. I am sure I will be in touch again!!
We have felt very well taken care of both by the guide (Tek) and driver (Serey). We would recommend Khiri to others planning their travels to Cambodia. The guide’s command of English was very good and his experience during the war period was an added dimension to our trip.
Mrs. Patricia Calhoun & Mr. Gregory Calhoun
We’d highly recommend this trip to the adventurous spirit. Our experience has been simply fantastic. Thank you for taking good care of us.
We love the whole trip so far, everything is perfectly organised. Thanks to your lovely guide, Lanxang, we really got an in-depth view into the local culture.
The guide [Amphai] had a great sense of humour and was very friendly. He even took us to his parents’ home for a little while and to a wedding, which was great!
I would tell everyone I know to come to Laos and do this trip as we did it. It was first rate.
Our guide [Daravon] was knowledgeable, personable and flexible – delightful!
We were really impressed with every aspect of Khiri Travel: your help in suggesting an itinerary, Sai’s flexibility in delivering the tickets and answering my many questions. Also, many thanks for the lunch in Inle Lake. Before we knew that it was being paid for, we’d all agreed that it was one of the best meals we’d had anywhere in Myanmar. It was a very kind gesture.
— Matthew Fleggson, British Council Yangon
The feedback so far has been great – said they never would have found some of the sites without you.
Heatherly Bucher, US Embassy in Yangon
There were so many highlights on this trip, so I will just pick a few: We loved Inle Lake and want to spend more time there during the next visit. Cruising on the lake and the scenery were marvelous. The Shwedagon Pagoda was magnificent, we just did not know where to look first. We felt time there was far too short, so we appreciate Nina’s advice on how to get back there on our free afternoon to walk around and spend more time there.
Thank you Edwin for patiently answering all my questions and making changes to the program and for taking time to meet us at the airport on our day of departure. The trip was wonderful and I can understand why Nina told us that she has many regular clients visiting several years in a row.

Yesterday I spoke to Mrs. Dubois and she was very enthusiastic about the whole trip, they had the time of their life in Myanmar!
She’s worried that from now on, nothing can be as special and good as Myanmar and that all other holidays will be a disappointment.:)
Denise Schelbergen, Talisman Travel Netherlands
Again many thanks for all your help and your follow up – we had an incredible time, it was like a fairy tale visiting this beautiful country!

My wife, my sister-in-law and I just returned from our fifth private trip to Thailand organised by Khiri. We visited, in particular, the monuments of Ayutthaya, Sukhothai, Sri Satchanalai, Kampaeng Phet, Pimai, Phanum Wan,and Phanum Rung.
In Thailand we were extremely pleased with our professional guide Mrs. Chocadapat Patty and our driver, Mr. Montvi. They were always on time and cool drinks and towels were always available. Although very exhausting, they didn't mind fulfilling our request to visit up to 20 temples a day. Each temple was professionally explained and documented by Patty. They also were very helpful in choosing small local restaurants where we could enjoy local specialties, from noodle soup to fish dishes.
The Kungsri River Hotel, the Dusit Princess Korat Hotel, and the Ananda Museum Gallery Hotel were excellent and had very good restaurants. Thank you for arranging this beautiful holiday trip and the perfect organisation behind it.

We found Chiang Mai to be our favourite city as it was the most enriching. The people, the food, the culture and OUR GUIDE. Our guide Chan was INCREDIBLE. We wished he could have accompanied us the entire way! He was truly knowledgeable about his culture and where he took us, was extremely kind and his English was incredible. We would absolutely go back to Chiang Mai! Phi Phi Don was beautiful any way you slice it.
Lucy and Chris, USA
We loved the variety of this trip - the balancing of visits to popular tourist destinations with more individualised activities, such as exploring the countryside by bike or ATV, riding elephants, taking a cooking class, visiting the opium museum, zip lining, watching a Thai kickboxing match, the dinner cruise, etc. We also really enjoyed being able to plan things on our own in the unscheduled time. We were never bored for a moment, but we never felt rushed or overscheduled.

Ken in Bangkok was superb! He did more than I thought he would . . . . He never left our side . . . . He made us feel welcome in Bangkok. I'll never travel again to a foreign country without the assistance of a guide.
Ava and Stephanie, USA
We’ve talked about our trip so much since we’ve returned; it was a wonderful journey and still seems so fresh and alive in our thoughts. I imagine that Diana mentioned our recent slide show of Vietnam. We had a great time putting it together–slides, food, and appropriate costumes. Chuan wore his ‘I look like my Grandfather’ outfit that he had made for himself in Hoi An. I wore pants made by (and typical of) the Black H’mong and a standard Mandarin blouse from Ben Thanh market. Being joined by good friends made for a delightful evening.
Essie and Chuan, USA
In Vietnam the hotels (Asia Paradise Hotel in Nha Trang, Seagull Hotel in Quinhon, the Pho Hoi Riverside Resort at Hoi An, and the Lavender Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City) were excellent and disposed of very good restaurants. Also the restaurant of the Elious Hotel has to be particularly mentioned. Also, the guides and drivers were good, friendly and always on time.
All visits, transfers, airplane tickets, and meetings with guides and drivers worked out very well.
Thank you for arranging this beautiful holiday trip and the perfect organisation behind it.
