    We contacted Mrs. Aileen through emails before we got to Bangkok and she responds fast. We booked a 19-day tour with them. During our first day, Mr. Wallop picked us up from BKK and checked us up in Grand Sukhumvit Hotel Bangkok. It was great! We had enough time to recover from the jet lag and enjoyed an authentic Thai massage.
    The next day, he picked us up and was our tour guide the rest of our stay in Bangkok. He spoke English well, a very fun tour guide. We like him a lot. He would bring us to places we want to try and experience. He would adjust the schedule to your liking. We visited Maeklong Railway Market and Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. Asiatique was a nice place and the price was comparable fair. Tour to Ayutthaya History Park was really relaxed, especially for history lover. Elephant Volunteer in Chiang Mai was a stunning destination. We had an amazing opportunity to feed them, play with them, walk with them, and wash them. Phuket was good seaside entertainment and very expensive. This beach was more crowded than other beaches.
    As to Vietnam, we visited from down to up. That’s Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang, Hoi An, Hanoi and Halong Bay. The colonial buildings from the French colonisation of Vietnam were a delight to see. I’m happy because I sent postcard to my daughter from Central Post Office. Halong Bay was the best point of my Vietnam tour. Totally worth the price.
    Our boat was steady and the rooms were comfortable. We ate delicious, diverse food and there was always more than enough. We enjoyed the activities. We got to visit a cave and a pearl farm and do some kayaking. The final leg of our cruise went smoothly and we just enjoyed the views from the main deck as we were all pretty tired after the days of activities. The only disappointed thing was the water and tourists. The water was greenish and had occasional plastic bag or bottle floating around.

    Had a great time walking around to different attractions, learning about the past and present culture of Bangkok and Ayutthaya while also enjoying the vast Siam history. The tour was well paced with different meals, comfortable accommodation, and must-see siteseeing. Mr. Sichai, Mr. Surangrak were excellent guides! I would highly recommend this tour company :)
