We really enjoyed this tour and felt it packed a lot in for the 14 days, making it very good value for money, particularly at the offer price. There's quite a lot of city time - watch out for mad motor bikers on pavements - and some very obvious tourist stops, but the activities were very varied and there was also some free time. The markets and temples were amazing although I wasn't so sure about the floating village being treated as a tourist attraction as it appeared that none of the money generated was going to the people there. We stuck with the three star hotel options and they were all perfectly adequate, all with comfy beds and in good locations. Food was good. I like trying local dishes and my partner is strictly meat and potatoes, no spice, but we both found plenty to suit our very different tastes. Our guides were excellent. They all had great local and historical knowledge and I felt I learnt a lot about culture and life in those two countries. I would really recommend this tour.
