    I went on a tour with Elisha back in June. She was an awesome guide, very fun and knowledgeable of the best places to go. Accommodation was fine it was more Elisha's guiding and the destination that I loved the most

    Arm was a great tour guide! He was friendly, lively, chatty and very funny! Made everyone feel welcome and as if they were part of a family. He went above and beyond to organise and plan things for us, making it a great experience.

    I travelled this time last year to volunteer with the Bamboo project. Our role was to help renovate a local schools on the island of Koh Samui, Thailand. The project itself was very fun and rewarding. The team were incredible and maydeliver us feel very welcome. On arrival they took us on a tour in Bangkok and from that moment I knew that the team would be very accommodating. The staff very extremely friendly and would take us out for mealsome amd provide us with anything we needed. We soon became friends and continue up to now a year later to keep in contact!

    Hey there! I was in Koh Samui, Thailand last year when I volunteered (Teaching and Building Project) and met Arm. Arm is really knowledgeable with what he is doing. I learned a lot about the school where I volunteered. He always make sure that everyone is enjoying and having fun while making sure that the volunteer projects are being executed properly. I would recommend Arm as your next Tour Guide as he is so friendly, happy and great person. Good Job Arm! Good job Bamboo!

    Samart is a excellent person, I went as a volunteer to Koh Samui in Thailand and he was our "manager" if we can call it like that. He is really nice, always with a big smile and laughing, making all of us did too, and making Koh Samui as confortable as our house, as our country, I totally felt like home thanks to Samart. Totally recommend him, a real friend, a good worker, and the most important of all, a good friend.

    I had the best time with these guys doing projects in Thailand and Cambodia. I made some really good friends and had an awesome time with the staff and volunteers on these projects. Although when I started I thought that us and the people we were helping would get more for the amount I payed. In some projects we would have extra costs such as airconditioning and the food we received was provided by the people we were helping such as the locals and the schools which made me wonder how much these people were getting from this. Overall I had an amazing time but I thought that for 500USD a week I may have been able to either travel for longer or make a bigger difference elsewhere.

    I taught English at a public elementary school with Arm and he was such a bright light and amazing resource. He was so fun and insightful and knew so much about the Thai culture.

Thank god because we would of gotten lost ! He took us to get breakfast at a local Thai place and led us to our accomodation. Arm's personality and nature is someone you could never ever get sick of. His commitment and dedication to making you feel welcome from helping you settle in to a new place to even taking us to the airport at the end of our journey. I can't thank Arm enough for everything he had done for me during my stay on Koh Samui and i would highly recommend him to anyone who is interested in taking on a Bamboo project. Thank You P-Arm ! :)
