    My trip to Thailand with GIVE completely exceeded all expectations and I couldn't have been happier with my decision to travel with them for my first volunteer experience. Perhaps the best part about the trip was the itinerary and the fact that we did not waste one waking moment throughout. It was simply an experience that one could not plan for themselves and could only participate in if going with an organization already deeply rooted within a community. Every activity from volunteering to the ones that seemed like they were for leisure had an underlying lesson to be learned and plenty of growth opportunity. From the beginning to the end of the trip, I never once felt like I was in any sort of danger or unsafe. The guides did a tremendous job of ensuring our safety but also pushing us to fully immerse ourselves in Thai culture. Transportation and food was as good as it could have been considering our location throughout the trip was mostly in the jungle. GIVE did a remarkable job in all aspects of the trip and I highly recommend this trip to any and everybody.

    The entire trip exceeded my expectations and I couldn't have been happier with my decision to travel with GIVE for my first volunteer experience. The itinerary was beautifully crafted to sculpt a one-of-a-kind experience in Thailand. It was simply only something you could achieve with an organization that has deeply rooted itself within a community and established concrete relationships with the locals. The guides ensured we got the absolute most out of every activity and encouraged us to fully immerse ourselves in the Thai culture. I would recommend this trip to any and everybody whole-heartedly.

    This trip was hands down one of the best experiences of my life. I loved that all the logistics were taken care of and I didn't have to spend any money once I was there. We were totally immersed in the Thai culture, learning from and working with the locals--this made the trip extremely special for me. I was amazed by how much I learned about elephants, permaculture, and what it means to be a global citizen. I urge anyone to seek discomfort and go on a trip like this because it will make you a better version of yourself. There was a tremendous amount of adventure along with the personal exploration/ education aspects of the trip. From trekking for elephants in the jungle to bungee jumping, this trip had it all! It was definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity!

    Thailand has always been on my bucket list, but with the increasing tourism and westernization I was worried that I wouldn't be able to get an authentic experience anymore. Then I found GIVE and was whisked across the world to experience true Thai culture from working in rice paddies to exploring ancient temples. I got to work alongside locals and learn about their unique traditions, travel to remote villages that showcased the beauty of community, and indulge my adventure side with elephant trekking and rafting. I got a full Thai experience surrounded by amazing people, both locals and volunteers. It was a trip that I won't soon forget; it reminded me why I love to travel and that it can be super easy to do. All you need is an open heart and GIVEing spirit!!

    One of my most memorable trips by far. Easily one of the best things I've done in my life. I went on this trip to go on an adventure and not really for any altruistic reasons. This trip truly did deliver on that. Personally I love roughing things up; sleeping on the ground (sometimes!), not bringing enough water on a hike, taking long physically challenging hikes, working on a farm, etc. (Not bringing enough water on the hikes was 100% my decision! There's always enough water).

    What a fabulous way of being able to help make a positive impact on local communities and still enjoy an adventure in rural Thailand. GIVE does a great job of culturally immersing and educating its volunteers so that we can appreciate and enjoy the beautiful culture, people and communities as well as being global citizens. GIVE has a great relationship with the locals such that our activities/work truly help their communities. The adventures were awesome--hiking to beautiful viewpoints, spelunking in a cave, working in rice paddies, trekking thru the jungle to find/feed/bathe/interact with elephants, wild rides through the jungle on the back of a pickup, spectacular raft rides down river to name some. Being in my mid-fifties, I am not the typical age for a volunteer but I highly recommend this awesome experience to anyone with a spirit for adventure, volunteering, and getting to interact with the beautiful people of The Land of a Thousand Smiles.
