Bangkok to Hanoi, April 2014
My husband (Mathis Wagner) and I booked the Great Indochina Loop and Beautiful Bali tours for our honeymoon and we both had an absolutely amazing time! All the countries we visited have been special in their own ways and we have so many beautiful memories and photos to treasure not to mention new experiences, knowledge and friendships. Having never been on a group tour before we weren't sure what to expect but we are so happy we booked these trips and had the holiday of a lifetime!
