TESTIMONIALS

“The hotels were amazing. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. The amount of time in each city was perfect to get a feel for the culture, time to see the sights with the tours, and free time to do your own excursions. I will definitely recommend Explorient to anyone wishing to see Asia.”
