  • Laos & Thailand on a Shoestring reviewer 1
    Written on July 23, 2017
    4.5 - Excellent

    Our group leader 'Apple' was incredible, full of knowledge and enthusiasm; always smiling and making everyone laugh. She, along with the rest of my group are what made the trip for me - meeting some amazing people I would make yourself aware that you are joining in a pre-existing group, that may bother some people but I was fine with this. The disappointment with this trip is that not much is included - I have paid the same price for trips with different companies for the same duration in similar accomodation and transport and far more activities are included and paid for than on this trip. It's good if you want flexibility and choice but it is very expensive considering you don't get much included
