    My experience on this trutravels tour was unbelievable. I didnt expect to enjoy the tour so much. From start to the finish the tour was filled with great activities, accommodation and guidance from out two tour guides. Gun and Everett really made the trip an unforgettable experience. they provided information and guidance when required and also had alot of fun memories with our group. Everyone felt part of a big family and that was thanks to our leaders. The itinerary was perfectly planned and i made memories and friends that will last a lifetime. There was so many amazing activities and memories to choose from on this trutravels experience. Some of my favorite activities and memories from this trip would be the floating bungalows in Khao Sok, Snorkelling in Koh tao and boat trip in PhiPhi. Along with the activities i really enjoyed the various viewpoints that we saw and also our nights out together. Gun and Everett are very friendlym kind and approachable tour guides. We were very lucky to get two great tour guides on this trip. Without a doubt my Thailand experience wouldn't not have been the same without them. I cant recommend Trutravels, Gun and Everett enough, for the experience they provided us with. It was amazing!!

    Overall, I had a good time on the tour. It was my first time travelling solo or doing a tour so I have nothing else to compare it to. I met some amazing people on the tour who really made the trip, it definitely wouldn’t have been as good without them. Most of the accommodation ranged from average to better than expected, it was a shame we didn’t get to stay at Echo Beach Backpackers in Koh Phangan (we had all heard great things about the atmosphere etc), on the journey there our guide was told we’d be staying in a hotel Tru Travels were test running with our group. It was okay but the water completely stopped while I was trying to shower, twice and both times I had to go and get someone to fix it, not ideal but fine. The main problem was it didn’t seem to be close by to anything. Also, the accommodation in Phi Phi was really not nice. I also found it strange that we only had one guide for the whole 18 days because from the reviews it seemed like everyone had 2 guides and it was too much to expect one guide to look after the whole group 24/7 for 18 days, especially when our group was so divided in what they wanted to do. Some of us wanted to go out a lot and some of us just wanted quiet evenings and to sleep. Our guide seemed quite tired and stressed at various points throughout the tour, I think he tried his best but it definitely has an effect on the mood and energy in the group when the only tour guide doesn’t seem to be having fun or talk up any of the optional activities. That’s not all his fault though, I feel that he should have had another guide to help manage the group. One of my main issues was how many ‘meals’ we were expected to get from the seven eleven, not even expected, we had no choice, it was the only place to get some ‘meals’ and there’s no real food in there, just snacks and junk. We had at least 4 breakfasts, 3 lunches and 3 dinners (at least) from the seven eleven throughout the tour, so just Pringles, chocolate and Gatorade basically. Koh Tao was the best part of the tour, I wish we had stayed for longer, I almost stayed there for the remainder of the time rather than continue on the tour. The accommodation there was great, it was close to everything, there were good restaurants and bars close by and a great atmosphere and island feel. After that it was ups and downs, Railay was fun because of the group but our hotel was again, out of the way. Phi Phi was overcrowded and then Phuket was the worst place on the tour (the hotel/rooms were nice though) but the only thing there was a shopping mall and when we asked our tour guide what was good to do there he said ‘hmm chill by the pool’. Also you need a decent size day time backpack because when you go to Khao Sok National Park (which is amazing and my joint favourite with Koh Tao for location and fun) you need to pack an over night bag with everything you need as you can’t bring your luggage/backpack but we didn’t know this before the tour so that’s just an FYI.

    If I could rate Gun and Everett more than 5 stars I would!! They were the best possible tour guides we could have asked for. They were fun, approachable, energetic and enthusiastic. They made our experience even more amazing than I had anticipated and went above and beyond to make sure we were having the best experience possible. Even after the tour ended Gun helped my two friends and I go back to the Full Moon Party, he organised absolutely everything for us even though his duty as a guide was over. I couldn't recommend this tour enough nor could I speak highly enough of Gun and Everett, they truly were the best!!

    Had the best time of my life in Thailand with Gun and the group. Amazing from start to finish. Couldn’t of wished for a better guide than Gun, he is a wealth of knowledge! A very vibrant, enthusiastic person who definitely loves what he does. Cannot wait to go on more tours with Trutravels/Gun!!! Xoxo

    The 18 day island hopping tour was bound to be an experience due to the places we were going to see and the activities we were going to do. However, the experience surpassed all of my expectations and was even better than I could have imagined due to the tour guides, Kuntapol (Gun) and Everett. Gun is an incredible, genuine person who provides insight into Thailand as well as laughs and entertainment. He is a very reassuring person often speaking to my worried Mam on FaceTime. Going the extra mile like that was reassurance that he was an exceptional guide and also a great friend. He really made the tour special.

    The tour guide wasn't great. When we asked him what we should do in our free time he usually said "chill by the pool". I don't feel like I learned enough about the culture or places we visited and we went to 7 eleven for "meals" way too much. I also think there should be some more information about the accommodations, for example that we would be sharing BEDS with people we don't know. Other than that, the beaches were very nice and I enjoyed going to the view points and the elephant sanctuary!
