    Hi Neal, thanks for taking the time to leave a review of your trip with us! We're so glad to hear that you really enjoyed your experience in Thailand. The feedback you've provided is very helpful, so thanks for that! Just a friendly reminder that each trip has a "What's Included" page on our site which details which meals are/aren't included, and also a "Cost of Living" page detailing the expected costs of meals and other items. We'll be working with your trip leader as well to ensure your feedback regarding activities (options/difficulty level/etc) is used to improve our future trips. Looking forward to having you on another trip Neal! Thanks again.

About Detours Travel

Get ready to tackle your bucket list while opening up your world to the most amazing people, places, and experiences out there. Detours isn’t just “travel”, it’s genuinely incredible experiences that promise to be unforgettable. Anything but your typical “group tour”, Detours is a laid-back, no-strings-attached approach to travel that feels more like exploring the world with old friends than anything else. After spending years traveling the world, we knew we wanted to share our passion for travel with others.  We noticed a lack of opportunities for young gay people to take part in group travel that went beyond a boat, and really allowed people to truly experience exciting parts of the world.  We also knew from experience that the typical idea of a structured "group tour" just wasn't our cup of tea.   That's why we created a less-restricting itinerary which encourages spontaneous, fun-filled opportunities to capture the best of what every spot along the way has to offer, and isn't that what it's all about?  We help our travelers to really get to know a particular country, appreciate the local people, and see and do things beyond their wildest dreams.  We travel in a casual, unhurried fashion, while enjoying the good company of a fun group along with easy going leaders.  The combination of our own unique travel concept and our extensive traveling experiences allows us to offer unrivaled experiences for our guests.    We don't believe in constructing a "cookie cutter" daily itinerary which attempts to give everybody a trip that suits the masses.  Instead, we want help our travelers have the time of their lives. To achieve this, we understand that everyone is different and that our leaders are there armed with tons of amazing daily options to ensure our guests see and do everything that our amazing destinations have to offer.  The only structured itinerary is one that outlines what days and times we travel to a new destination; but once we have arrived at the next amazing spot, you are free to do as you choose. Without a set daily plan, you can relax and do what you want, when you want.  Want to ride an elephant, bungee jump, visit temples, and SCUBA dive?  Awesome!  Want to spend a few days soaking up sun on the perfect white sand beach?  Awesome!  Nobody's going to tell you that you've got an 8am quilt-making class... unless you really want that of course!  The potential for good times is limitless (and never lacking). The Detours leaders are always involved with the group, and looking to inject fun and inspiring elements into every step of the adventure trip.  Our group trip leaders know the country and our destinations so intricately that we’ll show you the ins and outs and help you discover a trip that is far beyond your greatest expectations.
