Sherie "The Thailand on a shoestring trip was the most incredible 16 days of my life. I met all kinds of people, experienced a completely different culture and got to see most parts of Thailand.

    Our guide was second to none, transportation was suitable and the accommodation was great but be prepared for the whole experience to cost a lot more than quoted. But all in all, it was definitely worth it.

    From my personal experience, if it’s your first time travelling solo (male or female), I would highly recommend a G-Adventures tour. They give you the chance to experience the country at a deeper level, particularly if your time there is limited. Already having transport and accommodation organised, accompanied with a flexible itinerary, enables you to completely lose yourself in what the country has to offer.

My tour guide was a local so he knew all of the answers to our hundreds of questions and always knew how to help. The people on my tour are now like family to me, even though I was the only person from Australia I always felt included. I can't say I have a highlight because the whole trip was phenomenal! I would without a doubt recommend traveling with g-adventures to everyone I come across. I can't wait for my next trip with them!!
