    Stray Asia tour was very positive and exciting. Our tour guide, Oun, was amazing and very friendly. I loved the homestay and the villages. Wish I knew ahead of time buses could be cancelled. I was afraid of using the hop off option with fear of getting stuck somewhere. For people that do not have unlimited travel time this can be very worrying. I was nervous that if everyone hopped off I would be stuck somewhere.

    Amazing! The whole trip was hassle free we took the guides advice every where we went and were able enjoy every second and experience every city/town to its fullest. Everywhere we went the history was explianed and all trips and excersions were at offer and explained. We wish we had longer to be able to stop off at places but the tour guide made sure he recomended things that we would be able to fit in the time we had. Such an organised experience off the beaten track that we would recomend to everyone. Trip of our life thanks to Somboun!

    I finished the Tom Yum pass a few weeks ago as part of a month long trip to SEA. Stray was without a doubt the most rewarding trip i have ever experienced, only made better by our wonderful, honest and hilarious tour guide, Josh friendly! I am sad to hear he is taking a break from Stray as i genuinely wish everybody could have the pleasure of meeting him but wish him all the best. Myself and my friend met the stray team the day before we were due to depart and their smiling faces and warm welcome made us even more confident and exited for our trip ahead. The first part of the trip is tough if you have only just arrived in SEA as its a lot of culture, a lot of new food and an overnight train! But this really gives you a chance to get to know your group and your leader, all questions we had about the trip were answered within the first day and by the time we reached Chiang Mai we were all ready to get stuck in! Chiang Mai is an incredible experience but slightly too touristic, the tiger temple is overpriced and although they assured us that the tigers were sedated, i'm not too sure... However the night market and the Muay thai truly was a spectacle and this is where our group really became a family! The homestay in Laos was and eye opening experience and the Basi ceremony was a once in a lifetime experience you WILL NOT get anywhere else, if you find no other reason to use stray go for this!! Tip: if you like a party, hop off in Vang Vieng, think i'm still recovering!! Met so many awesome people here, another place i will never forget. Can't emphasise enough how josh made this trip better, all my great memories are thanks to him and he really opened my eyes in terms of the spiritual side of SEA that many westerners neglect and even disrespect at times, so if you see this bro, thanks a million, have a great time in ZL and stay amazing! From the british and the aussie girl, travelling together bringing our crazy dance moves and even crazier trousers with us x

    Just arrived to leave a comment after getting back from my time in South East Asia. I can honestly say that my trip and guides were amazing. Somboun was an absolute legend and was so welcoming. I loved the homestay on the Mekong, it was completely out of my comfort zone but that was why I went to South East Asia. On the trip I became mates with some fantastic Danish and English and have been whole heartedly singing stray's praise to everyone I've met. Maybe Stray isn't for everyone... but I found the concept of hopping off (I got Dehli belly in Luang Prabang so jumped off there) great, the guides fantastic and the off the beaten track stops (a homestay on the Mekong and a cave for the old Laos king between Luang Prabang and Vang Vieng to name a few) great and hard to find when researching the trip before hand. If it's not off the beaten track enough, you can hop off and explore on you're own until you're ready to get back on and meet more new people. The buses were also cool and comfortable, and after seeing what the public buses were I was glad to be on a Stray trip... Accommodation was good as well. Nothing too flash but all reasonably priced and comfortable. Again it's a hop on hop off adventure so they never made us stay anywhere, some even decided to find their own. The exception was the homestay, again in comparison to paying in Euros was cheap, included 2 meals and was an amazing but boundary pushing experience. The only thing I would change would be how long I was in Asia for! 3 weeks was not long enough! Finally Somboun was a legend, give that man a payrise! - Charlie
