Dear Hun Socheat

I am sending this email firstly to say how much I enjoyed the bike trip I recently completed with your company. I was on the bike trip from Seam Reap to Siagon which commenced on the 30/01/2010. The trip was better than I could have expected and I particularly would like to thank both the guides and the other staff on the trip whose services went well beyond what would normally be expected. I am already thinking about doing another trip this time maybe in Laos / Northern Vietnam so if you can suggest a suitable trip please let me know. I may not be able to do this trip until later this year or early next year depending on what would be a suitable time, weather wise. 

Thanks again, I hope I can go on another of your trips.  

 John Hood
