    Having not had many traveling opportunities prior to this trip (let alone traveling opportunities out of the country), I was nervous to say the least. However, all fears were quickly laid to rest once introduced to our tour guides. I feel confident in saying that Drew, Adam, and Yo are the dream team of tour guides, who made masterfully navigating 25 different personalities, interests, and requests look like a breeze. From day one, these guys created a safe and friendly environment that had them feeling less like tour guides and more like old friends. They presented what seemed to be a perfected itinerary, which was jam-packed with both well known tourist locations and also hidden gems. Though we were busy most of the time, there always seemed to be opportunities for down-town and for adjusting the itinerary based upon group interests. Every activity encouraged the group to join along, but also respected the possibility that others may want to stay behind or go on their own adventure. Their knowledge of the area and culture was expansive, their demeanor was perpetually friendly and helpful, and their laid-back energy and playful sense of humor was contagious. They were able to successfully bring together a group of 25 different individuals, from all over the globe, and create a sense of community. The (admittedly) corny opening line of "we are a family" seemed to ring true when it was time to leave. Though it may not be the same bond as the family from back home, I will always look back on this trip with a fondness and gratitude for having experienced such a beautiful world, with such beautiful people.

    I cannot believe it's nearly 2 weeks since I returned from the greatest experience!! From start to finish there was plenty of varied activities to suit everyone from the busier cities of Bangkok and Phuket to the beautiful beaches of Krabi and Phi Phi! Adam, Drew and Yo were brilliant and really helped me settle as a solo traveller! I cannot recommend this tour enough it was full of laughter, experiencing new things and making great new friends truly an experience I'll never forget! Thank you SO much TruTravels.

    It's been a week since I got home from this tour and I'm still buzzing! What a great way to explore Thailand! This tour will definitely tick your bucketlist! What I loved the most was that it included so many 'must visit' places and here is a big thanks to Adam, Drew and Yo for organizing it for us. You'll definitely share some great memories with amazing group of people! Happy travels!

    The tour was amazing! For a solo traveller it was a great way to ease into travelling and see how things work before going off on your own! It really brings you out of your shell, making friends with 20+ people you've never met before! Drew, Yo and Adam were so chilled and sorted everything for you, super helpful and friendly! Btw Adam I would still like my headphones back! All in all, would 100% recommend this tour!

    Been back in the UK since Sunday but my 18 day tour finished on the 13th December. The whole experience was the best experience of my life and loved every minute of it! Adam, Drew and Yo have a huge part to play in that and we're beyond excellent as tour leaders! Not only did they show us the great sites of Thailand but also were top lads who knew how to have a laugh and made the 18 days better!!! Gutted to be back home but would recommend the trip to anyone!!

    Been back a week now from the 18 day Thailand Island hopper tour, and i can honestly say down to Drew, Adam and Yo and of course a crazy bunch of strangers who turnt out to be the best group of people i have ever met made this an insane experience, from the moment we were collected from the airport all 3 tour guides made us feel comfortable and part of their TruTravels family. Would do it all over again if i had the chance, cant wait to do other tours with the guys. Thankyou all for the best 18 days. Tom

    I would 1000% recommend this tour to anyone that wants to visit Thailand! Hands down the best experience of my life and a lot of that has to be down to the tour leaders. Adam, drew and yo you really made it what it was! All three always making sure everyone was having a good time and even with a freak storm and non stop rain for three days they didn't stop looking for things for us to do. The tour ended yesterday and I already have the holiday blues. I'll defiantly be travelling with Tru Travels again!

      Does this tour include the James bond island?

      This operator doesn’t include James Bond island. Is located near Phuket and they find the Island to be too busy with tourist to take their backpackers. However you will get to visit Maya Bay (from the movie “The Beach”) and Monkey Island which are on Koh Phi Phi
