Booking the Total Thailand experience through TruTravels was definitely the best decision of my life. It really took the hassel out of planning and organizing such a big trip on our own. The accommodation was excellent and the food included on the trip was excellent. As for the tour guide I really cannot give this person enough praise. She was so lovely and welcoming as we arrived to Bangkok and made us feel very much at home. Her knowledge and experience really is second to none. Minnie works so hard every day making sure everyone knows what the plans are and if there is any questions she is always happy to answer. Minnie done her absolute best to ensure we were happy to participate in the activities and if we had any issues she always had an alternative. For the last 14 days Minnie has not stopped smiling and she's got a brilliant sense of humour. Anything that needed to be explained she explained it clearly. Minnie takes immense pride in her work and that is really reflected in how she conducts herself everyday. I don't feel like Minnie was my tour guide for the past 14 days I feel like she was my friend. Great tour, loved every minute of it and I don't want to go home!
Had the most amazing time on this trip! Truly an unforgettable life experience. The northern half was so full on, heaps of cultural exploration (temples, museums, villages, etc.) which was breathtaking, did things I'd never usually do like hikes and jungle trekking. Kanchanaburi was definitely a highlight of the trip, especially during Songkran, it was amazing going through the streets and celebrating with the locals! And of course the elephant sanctuary was beautiful. The adrenaline was at a constant high with so many activities and constantly being on our feet, I loved it! Papsii was the best tour guide ever, his photography was out of this world and he really welcomed us to Thailand. The most genuine, caring person I've ever met. The second half in the South was more relaxed and partying, especially with Gun! He was great to party with. It balanced out well and acted as a way to relax after an intense two weeks in the north. Khao Sok National Park is truly breathtaking, the night sky was gorgeous; our group spent hours just sitting looking at the stars. Bottle Beach was also amazing, really a great group bonding experience. Met the most authentically gorgeous people on this trip. If you're thinking about booking this tour, do it! You won't regret it. The experiences and people I met will forever remain close to my heart
I really loved the tour. From booking moment Steff was all the time responsive & very friendly. The transport from airport was super. I didn't need to think even for a moment about where to go next & how to get there. When I got very bad motion sickness on the way to Pai from Chiang Mai, Ben was super helpful & she helped me to recover while I was crying from pain. She helped me with Tiger Balm & I recommend you to tell all your guides to give it to the tour participants on such difficult rides which are full of curves. She also changed her place with me in the car so I feel more comfortable for the rest of the ride. I loved every single thing we did on the tour, especially the waterpark was the highlight. It was the best thing I have ever done in my life. The group was also very friendly people & I enjoyed the tour with them. Ben was very responsible about informing us about what happens the next day & what we should bring & she kept the time. The accommodations were extremely good, big rooms, own showers, helpful staff, breakfast, Internet, swimming pool, near to shopping places, what more can I ask for ? I just loved this tour & I am sure if I had come to Thailand alone it would have never been this fun & organized with 0 problem. Thank you all and best regards,
