What our guests say about this trip

I used Enchanting Travels for a very complex trip to Asia spanning over Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Hong Kong. I had an amazing experience in planning the trip with personnel who are absolutely familiar with some of the most remote locations in these countries, available accommodations and logistics. My planning experience with the company was the best part of this experience. The trip itself went like clockwork, with no hiccups, and at all times I felt safe with the drivers, and the support given from the tour guides and the trip coordinators who kept in touch 24/7 and always answered questions and was there to troubleshoot. I was very happy about the hotels, food, tours and vehicles. They also had excellent drivers who knew the roads, short cuts, was respectful, and safe drivers. This trip was by no means cheap, but I felt that I did get the best value for my money. If I ever need a travel agent, I feel that I will only use this company, if they arrange tours in the country I want to visit. I would reiterate that if you want to travel to a place that is a little out of the way, with language barriers, and want to see a country for what it is instead of like a tourist, this is the company for you. Enchanting Travels personnel definitely knows what they are talking about and provided us with great service. I travel a lot and I do not give this kind of testimonials lightly – this was an excellent company!
