Our trip was a perfect mixture of big cities and more remote places. All of our guides had very different personalities, and it was interesting to meet different people and hear their perspectives on China. Our guide at the Great Wall was unbelievable – much better than if we had gone on our own. And Ping An was so beautiful. We loved having dinner with our guide's parents – learning about the cultural revolution and Mao. Overall, it was an amazing trip.

Although at times our trip was certainly tough, most of the difficulties we were facing were there by design, so the overall experience turned out to be exceptional and unforgettable - which was what we were counting on - so many thanks to the entire team at Remote Lands. We are obviously particularly thankful to our two country guides as well as to our regional guide who accompanied us in Danum and in Maliau. All three showed admirable stamina and good spirits throughout our journey in keeping the whole exercise so enjoyable for us.

We have travelled Asia on a large number of occasions over the last 30 years and felt able to do this through our own initiative mainly. This year we decided to go outside our comfort zoneÂť with a month in Indonesia. After some research, I became impressed with the info I was able to garner from Remote Lands web site about Indonesia, so decided to contact them for help. After a couple of calls to determine our likes and dislikes, they came up with an extensive agenda concept which we fine tuned with them to occupy our month and allow us to see as much as we could of this vast country in the time we had.
On arrival in Jakarta we were immediately impressed by the attention we were given, the timeliness of the help, knowledge of the personnel and their flexibility if we needed something off the page. This stayed with us throughout the trip and there was nothing provided by Remote Lands that was anything other than 1st class. We had requested small intimate Hotels, and were amazed at some of the wonderful places they had found for us. We spent some days on small boats both on Kalimantan and Komodo Park, their selection of boats and crew left us both wanting to go back and do it again!
Remote Lands set an amazing agenda for us, in a month we gained a lot from our guides and contact with the wonderful Indonesian people. We are grateful to them for such an intriguing and well planned vacation.

Overall, Remote Lands was absolutely first rate. Logistics were impeccable, and we felt looked after door to door. It was quite a memorable and outstanding holiday to Myanmar and Thailand. Everything went very smoothly and more than fulfilled our expectations.

The entire trip was fantastic! Chiang Mai felt completely magical, and Koh Samui was beautiful. We managed to have fun even on the days when it was raining. And our guides were perfect! Very knowledgable and a lot of fun with great insights into the local culture. I've been recommending Remote Lands to all of my friends, and I can't wait to travel with you guys again!
