The excursion was very nice and the guides were very very friendly! Both could speak good English, we had very nice conversations. The food was also delicious. A vegetarian meal was specially prepared for us!

Boat and road trip is a misnomer… it is, in fact, a long road trip and a short boat ride. While the drive down was comfortable, I expected to get on the river a lot earlier than we did. The 4-5 hour boat ride was actually 2.5 hours. The lunch buffet was great and we were the only 4 people on the ‘tour’, which was lovely. However, for $119us each, I did expect more time actually seeing the floating villages etc.
