Planning Your Tour Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar

25/04/2012 | Author: | Posted in Travel & Leisure

Picking a tour company to handle your holiday in Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia or Myanmar can be quite bewildering. You may have decided to visit some famous places like Angkor, Halong Bay, the Mekong Delta or the Irrawaddy and cities like Hanoi, Saigon, LuangPrabang, Phnom Penh or Yangon. The routes, mode of transport and places in-between may however, be a logistics quandary, since you don’t want to be herded about with other travelers on a fixed itinerary. A private, custom-made tour tailored to your interests, traveling at your own pace with room for spontaneity, will save you time and give you value for money. You have your pick of hotels, either posh contemporary, French colonial era or rustic lodge in the tribal highlands and at preferential rates.

These private tours come with personal, expert guides who know that little touches make a big difference. They show you where to get a bargain, the best eats, keep you safe and without a worry. If you are a keen photographer, it’s important your guide knows the vantage points and best light or where the action is. Historic sites come alive with a vivid narrative, a forest yields its secrets, menus are deciphered… a good guide takes you beyond the facade into the inner sanctum of the country’s culture and life of its people.

Planning a customized tour is somewhat like going to a couturier. You know what you want but may need the couturier to help you decide for an elegant and refined flair. The Grandeur Journeys website is easily navigable with four main menu headings: Destinations; Itineraries; Accommodation and a simple customization page with a map and option boxes you simply tick off.

Destinations are geographically categorized in the drop down sub menu. Click for an overview, highlights, photos, video, hotel choices, related tours and reviews. An easy search of sample itineraries will help with a shortlist; romantic cruise with a gourmet dinner onboard, idyllic tropical island where turtles nest, cool mountains and tribal markets, elephant safari, white water kayaking, city by night and more as you fancy.

It’s rather exciting visualizing your journey through the website. When that’s done, there’s a Skype button to chat spontaneously or if you are on the other side of the time zone, drop a line. After all, a grand journey begins with a single line. For more detail visit
