Holly "The trip was amazing! Our tour guides (Andrew, Sammy, Ryan and art) made the trip so funny! They were always so full of energy and more than happy to help us out and make sure we were having the best time! There were so many activities up for offer in Bangkok, we packed so much into the 3 days we had there! I would definitely recommend the 13 day trip as staying in Echo was my favourite part as ev..."

    Met some of the most amazing people on this tour and had the time of my life! Cheers to Ben and Art for showing us a good time; even if it was raining the majority of the time they managed to sort out other things to do in place of those that had to be cancelled for the weather. Would definitely recommend to anyone travelling alone or even with mates- had an absolute stellar time and would do it all over! Cheers trutravels! Big love X

    Went on the full moon experience and coudlnt have been happier with how our tour leader Ben was. He was knowledgeable, helpful and most importantly made certain we had a great time. Despite bad weather much of the time, Ben still made sure we were all enjoying our selves and helped fill our days. Would have liked the company to subsides a few more of our activities and or meals due to a cancelled activities because weather, but overall a great experience and would recommend trutravels and Ben to anyone.

    Had such an amazing trip with Ben being our tour guide. Although we had horrendous rain meaning some of our activities were canceled, we didn't make it to bottle beach where we were meant to be staying a night, the early accomadation was sorted by the time we got to Koh phangan which was impressive. Ben was always organised with everything he had planned with us. Accomadation was decent everywhere we were and I was never split up from my boyfriend (which I was kinda expecting). Art was so lovely and also very organised giving knowledge about everything I asked about the area/place we were in. He is such a cool guy, quiet but very funny! The taxi drivers at Echo beach were so lovely and welcoming every time we needed a ride. The whole team at Echo were fun and always smiley! to top it off the food was incredible and cheap. Ben is a great guy who knows how to party but then also knows when to be a professional tour guide. The one thing that disappointed us and other members of the group was that we had to pay for some things we did in the evening e.g Muay Thai boxing and jungle party. We thought it would have been nice if the company paid for them considering we missed a night in bottle beach and we missed the booze cruise which we had paid for within our package deal and we feel like we missed out. Other than that the whole experience with tru travels was incredible from the airport pick up to the company and the experiences. I loved every person in our try travels family and so sad that it's all over. Can definitely say I've made some friends for life. Thank you for making our first time travelling experience one to remember!

    I'm currently on my gap year and booked the tour so that I wasn't completely thrown into the deep end and I am so happy I did! Our guides Adam and Ingo welcomed my friend and I straight away when we arrived at the hotel in Bangkok. They were so accommodating to whatever we needed and couldn't have done more for us. It was really nice to have guides that clearly took their jobs seriously but still treated everyone in a friendly way rather than seeming 'above' you. We were so lucky with the people in our group, I would happily stay in touch with every single one of them. Unfortunately the weather in Thailand was not what we expected and has rained the majority of the time, our over night train was cancelled because of it. Despite this, Adam and Ingo sorted everything out so seamlessly and all of us together made the most out of the situation. The only criticism I have is that because of the weather we were unable to fulfill quite a lot of the itinerary and although some alternatives were offered, I wouldn't say they compared to what we should've been doing. I don't believe this is a fault of the guides at all as they obviously can't control the weather and they did their best to update us with alternative plans. However, I think the company should have more alternatives planned in case of poor weather because it was up to the guides to find things for us to do day by day and I don't feel like I quite got my money's worth. I don't want that critique to take away from the guides hard work as they were amazing and I couldn't fault them! Just an improvement for the company in the future. Thank you tru travels for the great experience, I can't wait for April when I head to Bali for another Tru Travel tour!

    Sounds so cheesy but the tour was genuinely a life changing experience for me! From start to finish it was just amazing. We were really lucky to have such a good group of people but coupled with that our tour guide, Ewan, brought us together like a family. On the first night in Bangkok I left my bank card in an ATM, when I finally realised Ewan rang back for me but it had already gone. With Ewan nothing was ever unsolvable or too much effort and he managed to keep me calm in a moment of panic. It's easy to feel a little lost at times when you're travelling but Ewan made us all feel at home which I think is really important. The tour had just the right balance between culture and partying, and everyday is packed full of organised activities. It's such a good idea for those travelling alone or just starting their travelling experience. The national park was breathtaking and definitely one of my tour highlights! And the worst part of my trip was breaking my phone so I couldn't take 1000's of photos and videos of all the incredible places we visited. Although I'm working full time back home this tour, which was only a holiday for me, has made me reevaluate what I want to do in the future. It's definitely given me the travelling bug! I''m even thinking about doing the new Bali tru travels tour next year. Ewan thank you for being the best tour guide and you are now stuck with me as a friend for life!

    Hey Alex! Soo glad to hear you had such a blast , it sounds like you had an absolutely amazing time with a fantastic group! We must agree Ewan is an incredible groups leader and we are extremely lucky to have the adorable Kiwi fella! We also have to completely agree, Khao Sok is definitely one of our fav stops as well :) Also we're loving the picture! If you ever need any tips or advice for your travel plans please feel free to drop us a line! See you on the beach Tru x

    Ewan was an excellent tour guide. Highly personable, approachable, fun, friendly, calm, understanding and helpful. All the great qualities you want from a tour guide, and most importantly you want to be comfortable and feel your guide knows what he is doing - Ewan no doubt did that and more. Could not have asked for a better guide and friend!

    Hey Siki, Thank you for the lovely review, we have to agree Ewan is one hell of a man, we're very lucky to have him :) Glad you enjoyed your time with us, let us know if you need any advice for your future travels, always happy to help! See you on the beach! Tru x

Everything ran so smooth and the accommodation and food throughout the tour was really really good! Andrew, Sammy, Ryan and Art made the trip too! Couldn't have asked for better guides! Would come back and do it again with out a doubt!

The full moon party was amazing and along with koh sok national park, my favourite parts of the trip! Overall this trip was amazing and I would tell anyone I know to go for it! I will definitely be doing another Tru travels tour again :) X
