Vietnam & Cambodia Expedition Team

Share the adventure with knowledgeable, engaging companions

Over the 40+ years we’ve been sharing the world’s wonders with our guests, the quality of our veteran staff, and their companionship is the reason the Lindblad name is known and respected for top-quality expeditions. And, now that we are aligned with National Geographic, there is no better team anywhere. 

The team composition
Every expedition includes a veteran Lindblad expedition leader, historian, and naturalist. Plus, you’ll benefit from regional experts along our route. Skilled Vietnam travel guides help us explore Angkor, Saigon, and Phnom Penh and allow us to experience the arc of history through local knowledge of these extraordinary and diverse places. With extensive regional knowledge, our Cambodia travel guides will share the legends and souls of these fantastic sites.
