We loved the complete introduction to Vietnam and to Cambodian history and culture, the hosted lunches, the quality of the tour guides, meeting the local people. We were young adults during the time of the Vietnam war. I felt skipping the tunnels and the killing fields did not deprive us of appreciating the conduct of the war and the killing in Cambodia. We were able to get glimpses because of the guided trip, and the background given by guides and host families about their families' experiences. Especially the Museum in Saigon was poignant. Suggest adding tour to stilt houses on large lake in Cambodia. We went independently on a tour of this and this was great.
