For our customers, we think there are huge benefits to traveling with a guide in Indochina
It can be misleading to think a local tour guide is the person who is just responsible for counting heads and pointing out sights. Well, yes, they do make sure you don’t get lost while traveling with us. And they also play a big part in helping you cross items off your destination bucket list. But a qualified local tour guide is so much more than that.
The kind of guides we work with are people who recognise the important role they play in bridging the divide between cultures. They want to open up their corner of the world - whether it’s Laos, Cambodia or Vietnam - to create understanding and awareness.
We carefully source every tour guide to assess whether they meet our standard of care and align with our commitment to creating beautiful travel memories.
