    The tour itself was amazing! It had an awesome itinerary and included so many fun activities! It was well balanced with relaxing but also keeping busy! I would highly recommend this trip to anyone looking to meet some amazing like minded people and explore multiple different aspects of Thailand! #adamisadickhead

    Last week just finished the most amazing tour with tru travels. I was originally suppose to be on the 8day Thai intro tour but as my tour wasn’t starting for a two days my tour leader introduced me to Justin and Pom Pom and we all went out with there 18day island hopper tour for the night in Bangkok. I met 17 amazing people and we all just got on so well. I then asked Justin if he could move me onto his tour it was just too much fun and I didn’t want to leave them. Him and Pom Pom were just so helpful they transferred me on to it. The next 8 days were just amazing I’m so happy I got to meet them and all the other people travelling. We saw some amazing places which I will never forget. Justin and Pom Pom couldn’t do enough and were 10/10 great the whole time. Would 100% do the same tour again with them as it was so much fun.

    The tour was amazing and one way is a phenomenal person. Very funny and attentive always looking after everyone have a huge determination to learn English and great singer hehe always ready for an adventure and to get to know people. I felt really safe during the tour and he messaged me and my sister to check if you got home safe and sound. I will definetly do the tour again aslong as one way will do the tour. Oneway deserves to be recognise for his effort, determination and how he goes above and beyond to help everyone

    All in all the tour was great! The group was super cool and the guides were very nice and helpful. The activities we did were fun. The company TruTravel made a less good impression. For me it fellt like that TruTravels main goal is to make as much profit as possible and not customer satisfaction.

    Maya was an amazing tour guide who always went above and beyond to make sure we felt welcomed and safe. Even when she was no longer our tour guide, she still ensured that we knew the best places to visit and how to travel back home safely (both extremely appreciated). Maya was funny, kind and truly excellent in every way, she even taught us a few words and phrases that were useful for everyday life in Thai! I have so much love for her! #SexyPoseForLife

    One way was amazing! Literally couldn’t have asked for a better tour guide. Constantly made me laugh and taught me so much about the Thai culture. I’m usually afraid of new situations but he constantly made sure we were all ok and comfortable and if there was an issue he would sort it. His effort and determination to constantly learn English in order to communicate with us was amazing. Once again can’t express how lucky I was to have him as my tour guide. And whoever has him on their tour are a lucky bunch! If I had to rate him out of 10 I’d give him 100!

    We started our tour of in Bangkok where I felt instantly involved and relaxed with the welcome of Everett and Steve. Our group was one of a kind and I can’t thank Everett and Steve for being such a massive part of something I will treasure for life. Not only did they do their most for us on the daily but on my 23rd birthday I spent the day/night on bottle beach where later on in the night the pair surprised me with a birthday cake and lit lanterns at the end of the night. I was truly overwhelmed, a birthday I will never forget. I felt safe with these guys and they always kept us up to date with info whether that be culturally or just handy need to know stuff. I can’t thank these guys enough and I wish you both safe touring in the future. Anyone traveling with either of these pair are in for a crazy time!

    What are people saying about TourRadar?

    • Ricardo11th October 2017
      I reserved a 14 day tour of Europe and mistakenly reserved and paid for the wrong tour date. Realizing what I had done I contacted TourRadar and they rectified the situation rapidly and efficiently. A refund was issued for the monies not used and I am so far a very satisfied customer. I hope that the actual tour will go as nicely, and I will be very happy.
