    The tour was awesome, locations, activities and accommodation were generally great, Thailand is beautiful - I adore rockclimbing so Railay was the best!. Now if you enjoy people, my only comments would be to check how many people are on your chosen tour prior to finalising your booking, and try to travel in the 'peak' season to ensure all the nighttime activities are great experiences.

    I've really enjoyed the whole 18 days. There were moments that seriously challenged me, but despite being to out of my comfort zone, I still had an incredible time and can no look back on it and laugh, knowing it's a memory I'll have forever. All of the included activities were great fun and the optional extras well worth the money. My favorite activity was the snorkeling trip in Koh Tao, where we saw a giant sea turtke and blacktip sharks, along with so many other things - absolutely breathtaking. My tour guides, Lish, Bee, and Papsii went above and beyond to look after me!

    I've been very pleased with my experience. I couldn't have imagined seeing places like Khao Sok National Park and Bottle Beach. Koh Tao and Koh Phangan are such cool islands too. Scuba diving in Koh Tao was a clear favorite memory for me but I also loved the snorkeling and elephant sanctuary too. I am grateful to have had all three guides (Lish, Bee, Papsii) showing me this beautiful country and I've loved that TruTravels provides a native guide throughout the trip. This enhances the experience so much more and I think keeps everyone more relaxed, particularly when travelling.

    I have loved every minute! Even the overnight train and ferry as it is all part of the experience! I can't believe how much I have seen and done in such a short period of time. This tour was was perfect for "ticking off Thailand" as I feel I have seen a variety of things. Everything has run smoothly and like clockwork. Bee, Lish, and Papsii have been amazing, knowledgeable, and great leaders. Although the tour is tiring, I feel like there was enough free time and balance of activities. Despite being poorly too, Papsii and Lish have still gotten involved and organized everything on our behalf, e.g. onward travel and elephant sanctuary. Both Papsii and Bee had great English speaking skills also. My favorite activity of the trip was diving in Koh Tao and the elephant sanctuary in Phuket. My favorite memory of the trip was Khao Sok National Park and the longtail boat to the bungalows, the swim in the lake before arriving at the bungalows, the kayaking, and sunset.

    This has been one of the best experience I have had whilst travelling. I can honestly say I have loved every minute of every day. The accommodation was perfectly suited to each location and there was a good variety of types. The transport was first class. On time and runs like clockwork. Very good value for money and the tour took out the stress we might otherwise have had. The itinerary was a good mix and there was something to do every day. There was also a good balance of free time to do your own thing as a couple or a group outside of the itinerary. Lish, Bee, Papsii were our tour leaders. They made the trip very memorable and looked after us all the way. Lish was the life and soul of the party, but still made sure everyone was catered for in the group at all times. Bee and Papsii were super friendly and knowledgeable as our Thai tour leaders. Great English and answered all our questions. My favorite memory was arriving at Khao Sok National Park. It was peaceful and tranquil. Another favorite memory were the Bottle Beach huts and waking up on the beach as well as the viewpoint hike. My favorite activity was the snorkel trip in Koh Tao where we saw a sea turtle and a shark! I have nothing but positive feedback. Keep doing what you are doing . Keep guides like Lish, Bee, and Papsii - the tour wouldn't be the same without them.

    The 18 day island hopper tour in Thailand covered everywhere in Thailand that a backpacker would want to see! Some highlights of the trip include waking up in the middle of a lake in a floating bungalow, relaxing on bottle beach, snorkeling in Koh Tao and visiting the temples in Bangkok. Not only can you travel like a local, the bars and restaurants, the tour guides took us to showed s all the culture of the people. Our tour guides Oneway, Arthur and Pompom were the lfie of all the parties, so helpful and our own personal photographers. Met some amazing people and made some amazing memories. SO much ticked off my bucket list!

    We just finished the 18 day tour and these days were full of awesome experiences, beautiful places, and many activities. During the 8 day tour we did so many fabulous things and one highlight was following the other. Our next part, the 10 days tour was more forrelaxing and laying on the beach. I also liked that everyone of our tour guides had his own style and managed to be tour guide and member of our group all in one person. Our group was so nice and time by time we got to know each other better and better. All in all I can recommend the 8 day tour for those who love activities and new experiences and the last 10 days for more free time in a group surrounding Thank you TruTravels and Oneway, Arthur and Pompom for this incredible holiday in Thailand!

A decision that I could never regret as each place we visited was amazing in its own way. The pirate boat on Phi Phi, not only was the boat a lot better than previous boats I had been on but was so much fun. There was a good mix of activities to do on it whilst also having a DJ and party on the boat, with our tour leader Delaney and the staff on the boat making it something I will never forget. Definitely worth the extra money. This trip was great value for money with the majority of activities being included and managed to find a good balance between activities, sightseeing and partying. The two leaders , Delaney and Bee, definitely contributed to it by being the best tour leaders you could want providing us with all the necessary information and ensuring we all had a good time.
