Laos Discovery, May 2014
I loved every second with Aom, she is a very beautiful person, always willing to help and as a women knows when one of the group was feeling down. Aom was fantastic from start to finish, she shared stories, explained things well and looked after us completely - nothing was ever too much for Aom. You need more Aom's in your company, please share my comments with her as she deserves them greatly. Thank you Aom for making the last leg of my journey through south east Asia and also for all you kind words and help. You did yourself proud x x. X x

As a Dutch citizen, it was a relief to travel with Australians and people from New Zealand. The tour guide did an excellent job, I know, I have been one myself.
