A Recent Review of this tour

At one of our cruise ports, four of us booked a tour with Tai. Outstanding! Of the 16 days of our trip, our day with Tai was the best. One of the chiefs of his village, he knows the culture and area. He is knowledgeable, articulate, and really aims to please. He took us to the most beautiful sights we have seen anywhere. I can't think of enough superlatives. Thank you, Tai!! Alan and Sandy Paige
