We do our best to adhere to the itinerary, but the sights listed should be taken as a general guideline that, given local circumstances, might differ in sequence or substance on a given day. You will be provided the final trip dossier about seven or eight weeks before the travel date.
Trip Activity Level
This trip is motor vehicle-based sightseeing with some boating excursions, and all travelers with reasonable health conditions can participate on this trip. There is no significant hiking or any extreme adventure on this trip. Roads in all three countries are generally in good shape.
Accommodations and facilities
The hotels chosen are decent superior properties, rated four-star by local standard, and ensure adequate amenities and facilities. You will have private bathrooms with running hot and cold water. The hotels listed are our preferred properties, but we reserve the right to change them at any time, always working for the betterment of the tour.
All tour guides are local, and they change when you travel from one city to the other. They are local people with college degrees, government certifications, and experience with and knowledge of the destinations, their history, culture, and religion. Our guides are, just as importantly, easy-going, detailed oriented, patient, and committed to a high level of customer service. They will uncover the wonders of the destinations that you would never find on your own, and make sure your tour unfolds without a hitch. Your guide will also deal with the bureaucracy and passport or permit control, carry all necessary documents and vouchers, and stay alert to road and weather conditions.
We use clean, reliable, comfortable vehicles for all transfers and tours, often the Toyota Hiace microbus (capacity 8-9 persons) and Toyota Coaster Bus (capacity up to 20 persons). Depending on group size, we might also use Japanese-made sedans, SUVs, or minivans. We provide separate drivers and guides. Our drivers might speak little or no English, but they know the roads and are, in a pinch, mechanically skillful.
