Nagasaki and Kochi Highlights

We recently returned from a 9-night cruise in Japan aboard the Diamond Princess. Despite three port cancellations due to Typhoon Lan, our experiences in Nagasaki and Kochi with Shore Excursions Asia were fantastic. Prompt guides, clean vehicles, and great itineraries. We'll book with them again if we return to Japan!

Memorable Halong Bay Cruise

We booked a 6-hour Halong Bay cruise through Sammy at Shore Excursions Asia. Sammy, our travel advisor, was experienced, professional, and responsive, never pushy. The cruise exceeded expectations, and our guide, Tuyen, was excellent, good English and humorous. Highly recommend Sammy and Shore Excursions Asia for excursions in Vietnam.

Hanoi and Halong Bay overnight tours with Shore Excursions Asia

Enjoyed a private junk tour of Halong Bay with our small group. Explored a vast cave and rowed through a serene cove with monkeys. Stayed overnight at the 5-star Apricot hotel in Hanoi after a long drive. Our guide had excellent English, while the driver was friendly but spoke little English. Overall, great value for the experience.

A Memorable Ho Chi Minh City Shore Excursions

Dear Shore Excursions Asia,

During our recent group excursion aboard the Oceania Riviera, which included a stop in Ho Chi Minh City, we found ourselves with limited time to explore the vibrant metropolis. Fortunately, we stumbled upon Shore Excursions Asia, where Lynn graciously assisted us in crafting a memorable day. Lynn expertly coordinated our itinerary and arranged for Mr. Tuyen to be our guide. Mr. Tuyen's expertise truly enhanced our experience, ensuring we checked off all the must-see sites on our list while providing fascinating historical insights along the way. His insightful commentary at sites like the War Remnants Museum offered valuable perspectives, while unexpected stops at hidden gems added an extra layer of enchantment to our journey. Thanks to their impeccable coordination and passionate guidance, our brief visit to this vibrant metropolis became an unforgettable adventure.

great phuket tour from cruise ships - Shore excursions Asia

Great Phuket Tour from Cruise Ship!

Dear People of Shore Excursions Asia,

We have never expected to see so many things just in one day like that. Thank you, Ms Sandra, for being helpful all the time we need, whatever we required, and below is our feedback, I want to share with you.

Our guide, Aniswan, is a great tour guide, she was friendly, knowledgeable, professional, and very helpful with elderly & handicap. She tried to please everyone, for example some didn’t want spicy, some wanted no fish,.. but she worked hard to please everyone. The quality of vehicles provided were outstanding, just a tiny thing that the air-condition was a little bit warm. All of all, everything was exceeded our expectation!

feedback asia shore day trip - Shore Excursions Asia

Great Time in Naha, Japan!

Dear Shore Excursion Asia team,

We just had a great time in Naha, Japan, we are very happy with the experience. I found Asia Shore Excursions via Internet, and then I made decision to go with them. Thank you, Sandra, for being helpful all the time we need. She always replied to my questions in a fast, professional manner. Below is our feedback that we want to share with you.

Our guide, Kori, was a fantastic guide, spoken well and was full of information. The van was clean and our driver was always on time to pick us up. There is no time wasted. We would have loved to see more of Okinawa, but because of the cruise time we were limited, which was all what we regret about this trip.
