Andrew "Couldn't have asked for a better trip in Southern Thailand! Our leaders Luke and Evan were both great! Both very organized throughout the whole trip and knowledgable about Thailand. I love the idea of having a smaller group to travel with. My trip had 17 members and we all got to know each other so well and all got along. Accomodation was good at spots and okay at others but the amount of time ..."

    I just finished "20 days in southern Thailand over New Years" and I was quite disappointed with some aspects of my trip. To begin, I initially booked my trip with Beachtravellers, where I was informed id be paying 2200 dollars for 24 days in Thailand. Soon after that I see my trip is being taken over by Free and Easy and it has been shortened to 20 days with no reimbursement. Still don't understand that to this day. My tour leaders were Marielle and Rory, and they were both quite good. Marielle was outstanding and she made the trip very memorable, and if you ever have a chance to have her as a guide jump on it. She's hilarious and very approachable and helpful, she always is able to make you comfortable. Rory I was not as close with on the trip but he still seemed to be a good guide. Now the accommodations on this trip were honestly unbelievable in some instances. 2 places we stayed had bed bugs in one or more rooms, the rooms in Koh Phi Phi were unbearable, a couple guys even upgraded their room out of their own pocket their room was so hot and filled with mosquitoes. Another poor aspect of this trip was that we spent 4 days and 3 nights at this secluded lake house where there was NOTHING to do. All you could do was get drunk and kayak around. There was one short jungle trek excursion throughout the entire time there. This might seem relaxing for some, but when I paid to explore southern thailand I would rather spend my time seeing more of the country then being trapped in some shack on a lake for 4 days. When booking through beach travellers we were also promised a 16 person max on our group to make things quicker and easier an when free and easy took over it turned into a 25 person group. All in all, Thailand is a pretty amazing country, the people are SO nice and respectful to you, the food is pretty good, and the partying is unreal. On Free and Easy's side I believe they have a lot of work to do to make this trip worth the price tag that is attached to it and Id recommend going with a different company to explore the beauty that Southern Thailand has to offer.

    The 20 days in Thailand were just amazing! Our guides, Chelsea and Evan, are the best guides ever! There was so much diversity in this trip which made the tour a complete package of what you want do on a holiday! The people, who I was travelling with, were so nice that you just want to meet them again!

    The trip was beyond what I expected, definitely thankful for both Evan and Luke, as well as Chelsea joining later on! All the planning done by them was incredible! It’s so nice to be able to relax and not have to worry about things like accommodations, transportation..etc; especially in a completely different country where there is such a language barrier! All the activities were super fun, and definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone. I would have liked to spend a little more time in areas with more temples and culture, but that’s just me and with everything else I got to do, I definitely can’t complain. Super blessed to have met such incredible, warm, outgoing people. Thank you free and easy for everything!!

    Just finished the 20 Day Thailand trip with Luke and Evan. It was an amazing experience and would definitely recommend to anyone who has thought about travelling to Thailand! Traveling with Free and Easy is a lot of fun.You meet so many people and they are very knowledgeable about the locations you visit. There was a good balance between organized activities and free time to go off on your own. Also a very stress free way to go about travelling. Everything was super organized and not having to worry about booking transportation and accommodations is definitely a plus. Would definitely go on another trip with them again in the future.

    Free and Easy is a company I'd recommend to anyone!! They have great leaders, who are chill with such great, fun vibes! There is no stress knowing the accommodation and travel days are arranged for you. The company truly lives up to their name of Free and Easy, they have a great amount of activities planned for you but also some chill days. It's a great way to travel with a group without feeling confined to a strict itinerary! And best of all, you meet so many new friends :)

    I would definitely recommend traveling with Free and Easy, especially being a solo traveler who has never been to the destination before. I have just completed the 20-day South Thailand trip and very much enjoyed it. We were able to hit 5 destinations, with well-planned out travel days to get us from point A to point B, usually using ferryies or lrovate mini busses. All the accommodations were unique and enjoyable to stay at.

I love the idea of having a smaller group to travel with. My trip had 17 members and we all got to know each other so well and all got along. Accomodation was good at spots and okay at others but the amount of time you spend in your room is pretty minimal. Once the fan is pointing at you you'll fall asleep just fine. The activities that we had planned were great! I loved the beach olympics which our leaders planned for us. One thing i will never forget is those sunsets at Railay beach... absolutely incredible. I'm definitely leaving this trip looking for more than just a dose of paradise.. Can't wait for my next trip to Thailand already! I'd recommend FNeZ to anyone out there, solo or a few friends. The leaders and group members made it so easy to have a good time. I'd definitely book another trip with them in the future!

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • Can couples be roomed together?

      If you are travelling together, Free and Easy can accommodate you in the same room.

    • Will there be a free time during the tour?

      Free and Easy tours are exactly that - very relaxed and flexible. You will have a tour leader on your tour, but the itinerary is very loose and subject to change and you will have quite a bit of free time and plenty of recommendations!

    • Can I stay longer at each destination?

      You can stay as long you want before and after the trip but once you start the 20 day itinerary you cannot prolong your stays in each destination. Keep in mind that you can chose the activities you are doing in each and every place, you just have to stick to the accommodations and transportation as they cannot be changed once you start the tour.
