    I've just got back home after a month in Thailand, in which my journey started doing the 13 Day Full Moon Experience. I can honestly say this was the best decision of my life. It was non-stop fun and I couldn't fault anything we did one bit. I enjoyed every single minute right up until the end. The stars well and truly aligned for my best friend and I from the people we met to the tour guides we had, Justin and Art. We couldn't have done without these two, especially Justin. Justin went above and beyond his job to help everyone and everything. He made you feel so safe wherever you were whether it be on Koh San Road, at Full Moon or any activity we did. His organisation, care, friendship and sense of humour were key to the success of this tour. He really is one in a million and makes the world a better place. He is an incredible tour guide and his DJing skills are not ones to miss. Thank you Justin and Art for all you did for me during those 13 days. We really are a Tru Family and I am so lucky and honoured to have met you all. My life is better now I have you all in it

    I have had an incredible experience in Thailand with Tru and am amazed how much of this beautiful country we have covered inn just 8 days - from the buzz of Bangkok to the serenity of of the floating bungalows of Khao Sok and the relaxation of Bottle Beach. We have had so many unforgettable memories. Arriving at Khao Sok was incredible - it was by far the most incredible place I have ever visited and waking up there to dip in the lake is a memory I will never forget and a stay I will tell for many years to come. Don't ever let Justin leave!! He is an incredible tour guide who brought endless care, support and so much fun!

    I had the time of my life on my trutravels tour! Ben was the best tour guide I could have asked for. She immediately made Thailand feel like home, and it felt like she was showing us her favorite places as a friend, rather than a stranger doing their job. Her love and knowledge of her culture really made the tour special and I had so much fun trying new foods, new words, and making great friends and memories to last a lifetime. Cheers to many more visits, I miss you Ben!!!

    I was on the 13day full moon party tour with Maya. Well worth the money. I enjoyed every activity and thought everything was well organised. My favorite activity on our tour was the slip n fly. Maya has been an exceptional group leader. She was really informative and helpful.

    I really enjoyed the tour and gogi was excellent but I think some of the things listed in the itinerary were misleading. Such as 'dinner on us in the best spot in town' in koh phangan ended up being cold BBQ food in a hostel. Also, we were meant to go on a boat on our last day. At the start of our trip we were told by another guide (not with our tour) that the boat was broken. Up until 6pm the day before we were told about how amazing the boat tour was going to be, then at 7pm we were told the boat was broken. I just wish we were told this sooner. Thankfully gogi brought us quad biking which was great. But we were meant to have unlimited drinks and a free lunch on the last day which we didn't get. I know the quad biking was probably expensive but in scenarios like that I think you should allocate more money so that what we do fits the itinerary. We had to pay for our own food and drink the last day which was meant to be on you. Other than that it was an amazing tour and gogi was great they were just a couple of things that I wish were done differently :)

    It was so great, we wish it didnt rain as much but we know we cant control the weather. Arthur and Minnie were amazing guides, they were very supportive, friendly and fun throughout the trip. They definitely made the most of our trip for us despite the rain. My favourite place was Khao Sok National park, it was so scenic :)

    The tour was awesome i loved it. The river cruise and the temples were amazing. The whole tour was epic and i loved it. I would have to spend more time on the beach but i can honestly say i loved every minute of it. the activities and excursions were awesome. Unfortunately we had some bad weather but that didnt matter. Arthur and Minnie were SO sweet, helpful, enthusiastic, friendly and made the trip amazing. Khao Sok National Park BLEW MY MIND! It was totally epic, i felt like i was in Jurassic park. Amazing experience, great itinerary and amazing group leaders. If i could change one thing it would be the spend more time on Bottle Beach.

    We had a small group but none the less our tour guides Arthur and Minnie did everything to make our trip the best as possible. My favourite activity was probably the ATV's which was insane, Also Khao Sok National Park is Gorgeous. Unfortunately we had alot of rain but i know that cant be helped. Bottle Beach is also a highlight you get your own private island. It was amazing :)

It was a pleasure to spend the first 8 days with them.
