    The southern tour of Thailand was beyond amazing! What made it even better was having Allie, Steven, and Art as my tour guides. Allie was so much fun and so helpful! 10/10 would recommend TruTravels to anyone. The trip was organized and seamless making it easy to relax and have the best time with an amazing conglomeration of people!!

    I had a lovely time during our trip. The tour took us to various places that were amazing to see and I feel disappointed that I didn't get to do the 18day tour instead. The accommodation was good the tour guide took into consideration so of us were couples/married. Tina is an amazing person and full of optimism and information. I'm glad she was our tour guide as I felt safe and relaxed.

    It was my first time travelling with TruTavels and it was definitely worth all of it. The days with TruTravels were the best days of my journey in Thailand. The places they bring you are so unique and beautiful. As backpacker alone I would probably never find those places. I am really happy that our guides were Allie, Steven and Art. They are the perfect example how a guide should be; as a friend you can count on.

    Overall its a mainly positive review. Almost all of the accomodation was fantastic. Most activities were very very good. The elephants are a must! Bottle beach is where i want to spend every minute of the rest of my life. A negative - the night trains are pretty much horrible. The a/c is a must so dont be so cheap and put us on a fan train carriage. We are paying for comfort and that was so far from even remotely being ok. (I have also been in a/c carriage and it absolutely makes the difference). The tour guides (of which i had 5 different ones) were all very good. Lots of praise for all of those people who helped to make the experience however it would be nice if they actually knew details on the places and culture that we were visiting. It felt like 90% of the questions i asked were met with 'i dont know'. A little research goes a long way. I dont want to see thai things. I want to learn, live and breathe thailand and that was impossible. I get that we are a time frame so we must move on but that chance of getting information would have really made a big impact on the trip. (This is the view of the majority of my group, not just myself). Also whilst i appreciate that times of the year dictate certain activities going ahead or not i must draw upon one major, important and illegal action of the trutravel company. In my Australian tru travel brochure, online on the itinerary printable from trutravel.co.uk, from brochures from germany, america and the uk it says that we as a group will be taking part in the tubing activity. Understandably this did not go ahead BUT for the fact that we then learned this activity in atleast 2 years for 100% certainty has never taken place. I think you would find this to be illegal as it is false advertising. I would like to think this will be dealt with soon - and is something we discussed with our guides at the time. Its totally unacceptable.

    This was my first time doing a tour in a foreign country, and I'm glad I chose to do it with Tru Travels! Our guides, Lawrie, Benmore, & Ron were so great with taking care of us and explaining everything on our tour. I did the Thailand Experience tour and loved all the places we went to, especially Khao Sok. I wish I signed up for the 18 day tour to experience all of Thailand. I will definitely be back to see the parts I missed and will recommend Tru Travels to anyone wanting to do a guided tour there.

Questions & Answers

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

    • May 1, 2017

      How long does it take from Kho Phangan to Bangkok? And what transportation is used?

      Getting back to Bangkok from Koh Phangan takes around 12 hours, by bus or by train. So I would recommend booking your flight the day after the tour ends.

    • April 1, 2017

      The end location is Koh Phangan but I cant find any airport near there. How do I fly back to the US?

      If you are in a rush to get back to the states you can fly from Koh Samui to Bankok then back home.

    • March 1, 2017

      What kind of accommodation is included on this tour?

      The accommodation for this trip is made in twin share private rooms.
