Andrea Ross & April Cole
Business partners for more than a decade, Ross and Cole each bring their own strengths when planning Southeast Asian trips together. Ross spent 10 years living in Siem Reap, Cambodia, where she raised her children, and returns at least twice a year. And Cole visits the region regularly to scope out the best culinary and romantic spots. From chef-led street-food tours in Hanoi, Vietnam, to trekking the bamboo forest in Chiang Mai, Thailand, Ross and Cole arrange experiences to suit the purpose of your trip, whether it's a honeymoon or a family getaway.
They can also get you off-the-beaten path. In Bangkok, they can arrange a private dinner experience in a local chef’s apartment overlooking the Chao Praya River. And they have connections at some of the region’s best hotels, like Jaya House Riverpark in Siem Reap, or the Sofitel Legend Metropole in Hanoi.
"April and Andrea are special because they have creative ideas, excellent contacts on the ground, and respond immediately to every inquiry. They have a network of outstanding people in each country. They are both a joy to work with and I know that I can count on my trip being more than I could have created on my own. Highlights have been spending the day on a motorbike exploring the countryside around Hue, hiking up a mountain to spend the night entirely off the grid in a monastery in Myanmar, dinner and home-brew in the home of a one-armed Viet Cong veteran near Saigon, and a balloon trip at dawn over the misty temples at Bagan. There is no question that you get the VIP treatment with Andrea and April. Their body of knowledge about Southeast Asia is exceptional, their country contacts are excellent and attentive, and they offer caring, personalized, responsive planning." - Elizabeth Wilson
