When Eric from Odyssey Tours spoke to me about the particulars of a journey from Chiang Mai to Luang Prabang, I was very happy. In the last few moths we had been planning to do a personal route through Northern Thailand, but for the first time because of my wife's illness we had to reschedule this one. Just this last time we had changed the booking and payed for it.
Odyssey's Odyssey native has been very tolerant and sympathetic to these familiar issues and has also received a few credits from our abrupt drop. Alick Peng, our travel consultant, has made it very simple to plan a complete, individual travelroute.
