"Sadly the Vickers have returned to UK after having a wonderful and memorable holiday in Myanmar, thanks much to all the hard work, planning and preparation you put into our programme, which all worked like clockwork once we hit the ground running.

I am sending you by mail the required ' Bamboo Travel Questionnaire) with our comments, but its limited for comment space. So just to add - the hotels you recommended were all excellent, but the rooms you seemed to arrange for us were superb, many in prominent positions with excellent views and were extremely comfortable and we much appreciated them.

The Burmese people are really very lovely, polite, generous, respectful, warming, helpful, warming and amusing when one gets to know them. We met so many nice Burmese and have made good friends with many during our short visit.

We have strongly recommended Bamboo Travel to six friends already for Myanmar and feel sure you will be contacted sometime in the near future.

But thank you for giving us a very happy, most enjoyable, thoroughly memorable and splendid holiday.It couldn't have been better and in our opinion no other UK Travel Organisation could better it.

"We all had such a great time on our mini adventure. Tabin and Kinabatangan were the highlights, as we saw a herd of pygmy elephants that happened to be passing through , a python "digesting " its prey of possibly a wild pig, a sun bear and the huge bonus of a wild oran utan swinging through the trees! Plus many varieties of birds, monkeys,and small snakes!"

"The accommodation was as I expected: no frills, but exceptionally clean, well maintained and very friendly staff wherever we stayed."

"As mentioned in my questionnaire, if you hadn't been so prompt and efficient in replying to my initial enquiry I would have probably looked elsewhere! I wish Bamboo Travel and you personally every success in the future."

"We have just returned from the Naadam Festival and Solar Eclipse and would like to thank you for a wonderful trip. Mongolia & China were fascinating and everything went very smoothly.  The Guides (Orgil in Mongolia & James in China) were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and added a great deal to our visit to their countries. We certainly hope to travel with Bamboo Travel again."

"Thanks again for everything in organising the holiday, we certainly found nothing like that on offer in Australia.  The guided tour was exactly what we were after, our guide (Jimmy) was excellent (along with the driver). Club Paradise was well worth waiting for and just what we needed after a week of hectic touring!"

Michael Fitzgerald - Victoria, Australia

"Just wanted to say thanks for organising such a wonderful trip. It all went really smoothly, the guides were all excellent and really looked after us... we had a fab time and will definitely use your services again and will not think twice about recommending your company to friends!"

Alison Balmforth - Halifax

"Overall, the trip was totally fantastic. The organisation was great - the guides were always there when we arrived, the hotel reservations were all fine, all entrances to sites were paid up, the vehicles were nice and we had absolutely no problem with tickets or anything of the sort….we would all like to thank you very much for organising an excellent holiday, and will be recommending your services to our friends. My personal view is that this is the best possible way to see China - sufficient assistance that you're not totally lost, but still with plenty of independence."

Lyndsey Gunn - London

"Thank you very much for organising a splendid holiday for us. The high spot was the river cruise on the Pandaw which was very enjoyable. The boat was very comfortable; the food was good, the drinks free and the staff very attentive. All the hotels we stayed in were excellent... Everything worked very smoothly and efficiently."

"I just wanted to let you know what a great time we had in Vietnam. The trip worked out perfectly - good accommodation, interesting guides, some fantastic sights, friendly people and delicious food. What more could one ask….Thank you for your help. We will definitely recommend you to friends who want to head out to the Far East."

Sarah Nield - Southampton

"I wanted to drop you an email to say a big thank you. Our trip to Thailand went so smoothly, the hotel you booked in Bangkok was just perfect. Sukorn beach bungalows were wonderful and so were the people. I would certainly recommend your services to anyone, and would definitely use you again."

Melanie Morris - Tunbridge Wells

"What can I say - our feedback is totally positive on all aspects, before and during Cambodia. Our two guides were excellent; both Eak and Engly - very good English, excellent knowledge of Cambodian history and culture, their passion for their country and their care of us was first class. The school at Shinta Mani was an excellent example of assistance that is being given and we were please to be able to sponsor one of the students at the school. In all - wonderful."

Andy & Janet Beal - London

"Thank you so much for organising our wonderful holiday to China. Having never met you in person we arrived in Xian a little nervous but we should not have worried. Our guide Lily was fantastic and very knowledgeable. The trips you advised exceeded our expectations….the same service continued in Guilin with another perfect guide Lee. The day trek to the Rice Terraces was hard work but I wouldn’t have missed it, simply fantastic a day to remember forever. Bamboo Travel did a first class job... we had a holiday of a lifetime."

Dawn Reynolds - Northwich

"Just to let you know that we are back from a fantastic trip to Vietnam and that everything ran like clockwork. I will be more than happy to recommend Bamboo travel to anyone I can and your representatives were brilliant at every location."

Sue Cook - Ambergate

"Firstly I'd like to say that we both had a fantastic time and found the trip greatly enhanced by the services you provided. All three guides were there to meet us at the designated pick up points and were friendly, informative and flexible to our needs….I'd also like to comment on the excellently presented itinerary pack that you sent to us. The layout and attention to detail including the addition of photos specific to our trip gave us real confidence in the professionalism of your business and made us feel that everything was well prepared and organised. The luggage tags were a nice touch too! I appreciate all the work that went into it and your patient dealing with all our alterations and additions along the way."

Henry Drake - Hinckley

"I just wanted to say that we all had an absolutely fantastic trip to Laos and Angkor….thank you (and everyone else who was involved) for making our holiday one that we will never forget. It really was one of the best that I have had and everything went very smoothly. We have all become obsessed with Laos and I am sure that at least some of us will go back."

Alasdair McWhirter - London

"Firstly this is to thank you for the really superb arrangements you made for our trip to China this month. Everything worked perfectly. We were met and escorted without flaw, we stayed in very interesting, comfortable and well located hotels, and had great meals. We really enjoyed the trip and learned a huge amount about your great country….You can be sure that we will be recommending Bamboo Travel to anyone that we meet who would like to visit China. It was such a perfect trip."

Hugh Burnett - Hove

"Thanks for putting together such a great tour of Cambodia for us. We had a truly amazing time and fell in love with the country and its people....The tour was so well planned, our guides were great and we came home having had a much deeper experience than you usually get as a tourist. Everything worked out well, the choice of hotels, restaurants and excursions."

Tracey Reid - Aylesbury

"A big, big thank you to you, Tim, and your representatives for organising the most wonderful trip to Myanmar. The four of us had the most amazing time from start to finish. The guides were informative and friendly; hotels first class and the tour itself very interesting taking in the key sites and more...nothing was too much trouble. Anyone considering a trip to Myanmar should go ...and with Bamboo Travel! You were brilliant!!!"
