We had Driver John and Tour Guide Top Joe. both were wonderful and extremely helpful. Joe was a wealth of information about all the places we visited and many other questions about Cambodia. John was happy to drive us out of his way at the end of the day if needed. John even stopped on request if we saw a shop to look in on the way to or from on organised event. both John and Joe were great. I would recommend Odyssey tours they are not the cheapest but my experience was worth the extra money.

Fantastic tour organized by Alick Peng at IOT. Loved everything about our tour and having very knowledgeable guides and safe drivers allow you to really enjoy the experience. We began in Siem Reap with Muni as our guide. He is passionate about his country and answered all our never ending questions. We did the temples around Siem Reap and then ventured to Battambang where we rode the bamboo train. We all really enjoyed this and the countryside is amazing. We had a new guide in Phnom Penh called Richard. He was also well educated and gentle. I would highly recommend both guides and drivers. Our driver in Siem Reap was particularly attentive with water and towels as it was very hot. We enjoyed 3 nights at Sihilunouk which is a beautiful beach area. We stayed in Sokkra 2 which is the quiet, cleaner more family end. This is our second time with IOT and both experiences have been extremely memorable and they have made the tour itinery just how we wanted. I would definitely book again.

Odyssey Tours provided an excellent tour of Hue and Hoi An, and our tour guide Nguyen Thi Hong Thuy made it exceptional. Thuy was extremely knowledgeable; however, it was her warmth, sense of humor, and the way she took care of us that made the tour unforgettable. Everyday she went the extra mile to make sure our trip was enjoyable and memorable. After spending several days with Thuy, she felt more like family than a tour guide, and we will always be grateful for her generosity.

We booked a private guide to show us the highlights of Hanoi this week. Odyssey provided us with Mr Thong, who gave us excellent service. He was knowledgeable of history of the city, was flexible regarding the schedule for the day, went at a perfect pace for our family and even helped my husband hunt down a particular souvenir that he really wanted to find. Odyssey were really professional during the booking process and I would heartily recommend them to anyone looking to hire a guide to show them this wonderful city.
