  • Review by Evalyn L.

    "We just returned from a two week tour in China put together by Explorient. Overall, we were very satisfied with the guides, drivers and itinerary. We had a problem with a canceled flight in X'ian, which resulted in chaos at the airport. We did not have a working emergency contact number which was also frustrating. Other than that, our trip was wonderful and working with Kervin was a very good experience."

  • Review by Binh Nguyen from United States

    "My wife and I took a once-in-a-lifetime adventure to Asia and Explorient made the trip most memorable. Everything from the transport pickup to the meals was thoughtfully organized by the staff at Explorient. All we had to do was show up and experience the local scenery. We stayed at Le Meridian in Shanghai and Kata Club in Phuket. Both were amazing. Same was true for the excursions and tours which were all booked for us by the staff. We're definitely looking to go back and will not hesitate to use Explorient again for our next trip to Asia. We've also recommended Explorient to our friends who have had similar experiences. The memories from our trip will last a lifetime. Thanks guys!"

  • Review by Naomi from United States

    "Our trip to Thailand (Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket) was thoughtfully planned out for us. We didn't have to research a thing! The staffs at Explorient are knowledgeable and plan your entire trip based on your interests and how active you want to be. They were very responsive when we had to make a last minute change during our trip. We felt safe and well tended to. Highlights of our trip were mountain biking, elephant riding, floating market, shopping, breakfast buffet and getting picked up by our driver and guide everyday like royals.We wanted to see a cabaret performance and our guide was able to switch a few things around and accommodate us. We also used Explorient a second time for our trip to China (Shanghai, Beijing). Given it was a last minute thing, they helped me get my visa in time and flights booked right away. China trip was just as amazing - flight accommodations on ANA, top notch hotel service at Le Meridien Shanghai and a grand tour of the great wall. We were given suggestions on where to go, what to see and do on our free day. Thank you Explorient for two great experiences!"

    "This travel agency knows their stuff. I recently booked a 3-week trip with my husband to travel through Asia. We went to Hong Kong, Bangkok, Koh Samui, Beijing, Guilin and a few other small towns in China. The itinerary was perfect along with great tour guides to show us all the sights. The hotels they used were phenomenal. Everything was top notch which made our vacation so memorable and definitely a trip of a lifetime. We will definitely use Explorient again in the future. Perhaps Japan will be next!"
