About this trip

Venture into the heart of Indochina as you make your way to Vietnam and Cambodia. From the bustling and chaotic city capitals of Hanoi and Phnom Phen to deserted islands...so deserted that the show Survivor has a permanent base for filming here.


No trip to Cambodia and Vietnam would be complete without exploring the ancient city of Angkor that is slowly being devoured by the jungle or sailing through Halong Bay for an overnight cruise on a traditional 'junk' boat. This trip truly is a once in a lifetime experience with breathtaking scenery, secluded beaches, a tragic yet captivating history and so much more!

A pretty deep dive into several diverse locales in western Cuba, travelling in a small group on a good 24 passenger Chinese built mini bus with a fabulous, knowledgeable, intelligent English speaking young guide named Mickel. Staying at B&B's, or Casas Particulares as they are known in Cuba, was OK if you're not expecting a Hilton Motel. Each one had good clean bedding, strong, but oddly inflexible A/C system, a room safe, and was situated in a good location. Plumbing was usually good but water pressure could pose a problem occasionally. , Water is a common problem in the 'worker's paradise' where everyone is equal, as in equally poor. The Cuban Convertible Peso, pegged to the USD rules; the regular peso of the people is dying a slow death. Rather than recommend this trip, I say that it should be MANDATORY for any American who has an unearned gov't entitlement, especially college grads who have Federally insured loans. I have neither but I still am digesting the experience two weeks later. Cuba is at a crossroads; it can stay the course and wind up like Venezuela, or veer toward private ownership, and prosper like China has done. I blew a kiss to the air when I landed home in FLL. Great trip, but I would like to understand why such an inexpensive location (casas were $20-$65 per night) was over $2500. That was the sole reason I gave it only four stars out of five. Terry G.

While I would travel with Globe Drifters again and do recommend them, it was Mikel, our Cuba tour guide who really made this trip a cultural experience. It is extremely obvious that he has developed relationships with people in order to enhance travelers experience. And, I lost my passport and Mikel went out of his way to attempt to track it down at the airport where I believed it was lost. He did not have to do that and when he couldn’t find it, he stayed with me the entire 3 hours it took to get a new one. In that process, he remained calm and deciphered how to best get me a new passport. If you go to Cuba with an interest in learning about the country, you will have a great time. If you are interested in bringing items to share with people I’d recommend, bars of soap, toilet paper, tampons, baby wipes, and sunscreen.
