    *Thailand & Laos* I went into the trip with few expectations, just wanting to be immersed in the culture and go on some fun excursions, and I got just that and more! From the accommodations to the wonderful guides to the wonderful and welcoming locals, this trip couldn't have been a better way to spend a month of break. The fun excursions such as searching for and hanging out with elephants, bungee jumping, and zip lining were the icing on the cake. This trip was eye opening and life changing, and I cannot wait to share my experiences with everyone I can. If I could go on every trip GIVE has to offer, I would in a heart beat!

    Decided to do the SE Asia excursion for the sole reason that I would already be traveling half way across the world... Never expected to experience what I did. Throughout the month, I experienced an immerse amount of new sensations, emotions, challenges, and sweet memories. My predetermined perception on other countries and other people was definitely challenged and I am so grateful for it. GIVE truly lives up to their name because each individual who goes on a excursion grows and discovers what is means to be a citizen of the world. I can only speak for my new GIVE family and myself on this but, each of us gained the confidence and motivation to plants seeds in order to be the "roots of change". This experience is so special because one would never be so deeply immersed with locals and the culture without the trusting/loving relationship GIVE has with the locals. Our guides were all very caring, supporting, intelligent, genuine, and inspiring people who I feel so lucky to have worked with and learned from. This is something I feel like everyone should experience if given the opportunity. Even if you're on the fence about it... give it a try, you won't regret it.

    My GIVE trip was better and greater than anything I ever imagined. I didn't have any expectations for my time in Thailand or Laos and they were both absolutely incredible. The GIVE leaders were phenomenal; they were organized, motivational, inspirational, and fun-loving, happy people. Everything ran smooth, from our daily schedules; meals; activities with the locals; to transportation between villages, airports, and accommodations. We got down to business during the volunteering portion, then had a blast during the activities that were planned for us. I would highly recommend GIVE to anyone. My experience is one that will last with me for the rest of my life and I can't thank GIVE and all GIVE staff enough for the amazing trip I had in Thailand and Laos.

    There was a moment in my life where I was searching for something more. I sat at a desk working a job that had no meaning to it. My passion for adventure was fading and I needed a change. All of that happened the moment I applied to become a GIVE Volunteer! Next thing I knew I was putting in my 2 weeks and headed on the first flight out to LAOS (which I knew nothing about). I was greeted at the airport, sign in hand, by 2 wonderful guides from GIVE. It was a breath of fresh air to begin such a life changing journey with ease. The days flew by embarking on every corner of culture that the beautiful country of Laos had to offer. From volunteering at FREE THE BEARS to getting my toes nibbled on by little minos in a turquoise waterfall, the trip was nothing less than amazing. GIVE has created an amazing bond with the locals and you feel it throughout your time traveling. Our days volunteering in the middle of the jungle were moments that I will forever share with loved ones, they have helped me to evolve into who I am today. I had never felt a connection as genuine as the one felt there in Sop Chem! Learning about a deeper part of myself was a big realization during the time spent on my GIVE trip. It helped to push me mentally and physically by seeing a way life that is lived so peacefully in the remote areas of Laos. This lead my life into stretching beyond any comfort zones I was constantly running back to. The best part of it all was the ability to work and live alongside the locals of the village. We were in beautiful bungalow cabins with a breath taking view of limestone mountains alongside a chocolate looking river. Sop Chem has a very special place in my heart, and its where I met some of my best friends in those 2 weeks and now feel like I have a family across the globe! I can't wait to see more of the world through being a GIVE Volunteer!

    This year I decided to spend 6 weeks volunteering in South East Asia. I knew I wanted to spend some time with Free The Bears in Cambodia, but didn’t know who to volunteer with in Laos. From a google search I found GIVE. I was sceptical as an Aussie I’d never heard of them as an organisation, but from these reviews I thought I’d give it a crack. And I must say I’m glad I did. The first couple of days ease you in with some Laos cultural education, then it’s onto some hard (enjoyable) work with FTB at their new site – we built a couple of climbing structures with the local staff. We then boarded a nice comfy bus and jumped on a boat to Sop Chem. As you arrive in Sop Chem you are greeted by the locals, who are all gorgeous and full of smiles & happiness. The main highlight for me was working alongside the local men and women on the construction site. Despite the language barrier we all worked as a team, whether it be mixing cement, sifting sand, or rendering the walls, it all just worked so smoothly. The accommodation and food were great (as a vegetarian that’s a big call), the guides were also fantastic! I would recommend GIVE to anyone who enjoys hard work (because it is hard!), being out of your comfort zone (in a good way) and generally hanging out with awesome like-minded people while experiencing something incredibly rewarding. I hope to have a chance to join another GIVE Program one day.

    This summer I went on my 3rd trip with GIVE...needless to say it is an incredible organization!! I've had 3 absolutely life-changing experiences with GIVE and would highly recommend this trip to anyone looking for an adventure. The accommodations are awesome, the food is great, and the guides are truly amazing. This is definitely not your average tour group - it is SO much more.

    My trip with GIVE was the most life changing experience I've ever had. Signing up through GIVE, I was just going with my girlfriend, but I was so glad she dragged me to go. Like what their description said, it really is an adventure. I've never been so immersed in a foreign culture and learned so much in so little time. I did the Laos trip, and they weren't kidding when they said you will fall in love with Sop Chem (the tiny village we volunteered in). Going into the village, I didn't think I'd grow to care for it, but it turns out I was balling my eyes out saying good bye to all the people I met. I guess spending all day every day working, playing, and learning with these welcoming, friendly people gets to you. GIVE also really cares for their volunteers and strives to make a difference in the world. I was really impressed by GIVE and how well thought out their program is. Everything is carefully planned, from how the program supports the local economy to how much time is allotted for every activity. I highly encourage everyone to support this amazing organization, and to help the wonderful people they help. Word of advice, come with an open mind. Many times I was put into a situation where whomever I was talking to spoke no english, but trying to work around that language barrier made it all the more fun. Also, please be prepared to work! I found that the more effort and energy I put into these projects, the more emotionally invested I felt in the community. Work hard not only for community, but also for yourself!

    This trip was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. We were able to immerse ourselves into the local culture of Sop Chem while teaching the children English and building a new school building.

    My trip with GIVE was life-changing. I went to Thailand and Laos and not only did I learn so much about the culture of each country, but i learned so much about myself. The people i met, volunteers and locals alike, made such a huge impact on my journey as a global citizen and I cannot thank them enough. I'm so grateful for this experience and i recommend it to everyone. The work is extremely rewarding and the outdoor adventures push you out of your comfort zone in the best way possible.

I will apply these teachings to the decisions I make hereafter, and could not be any more grateful for what global volunteerism has done for me.

    I haven't travelled yet but from what I've seen so far I'm extremely happy I have chosen to travel with TourRadar. From my very first enquiry I was impressed. I had been researching a number of companies to find the right tour for us but all the others took their time in replying and I had to ask a number of times for information. The team at TourRadar were always prompt with answering me and very forthcoming with information. The website was easy to use and I was very impressed that it had so much information. What information I couldn't find on the website was quickly given to me once I asked. Would I refer TourRadar to my friends.....I already have! Now I can't wait to travel
