    The activites selected for the tour were very well decided. I felt fully informed for the entire trip and everything was very well organised by Ali, Arthur and Everett. Ali also shared lots of information and knowledge about the different areas we visited which was very interesting to hear. I would recommend this tour to anyone!

    I cannot praise Ev and Steven enough - they were incredible tour guides! Both super approachable, welcoming and knowledgable as well as being the heart and soul of the party!! I feel so lucky to have had these 2 as my tour guides, they definitely made the experience what it was, and brought our little TruTravels family together! I would 100% do another TruTravels tour!

    An absolutely amazing tour made even better by Ev and Steven. Right from the first night they made our group feel so comfortable and relaxed and made us into the little family we turned out to be. Always up for a laugh in whatever we do and although we nearly found their breaking points they are always last ones standing on a night out. Couldn’t have asked for 2 better tour guides

Steven is the most chilled out person ever, so interesting and mad crazy, will never forget dancing on stage in Bangkok and the interesting nicknames haha. Would definitely recommend touring, 100% going again. DO. IT!!

    I'm just back from the best holiday I've ever had, doing The 12 Day Half Moon Experience. From the start of the trip Everett was so personable and very welcoming to not me but everyone in are entire group. The range of activities were all interesting but quite tiring for myself. I would recommend using Tru Travels to anyone. Thanks so much Everett and Steve, you guys are the best!

    I enjoyed my time on the 12 day half moon tour, Starting in Bangkok and finishing on the beautiful island of Kho Pha-ngan, the tour timetable and activities could be better but the highlight was definitely our guide Tina, she was genuinely warm and caring and would go out of her way to ensure we were getting the most of out of our time with her. She took us to some hidden gems within her own free time which made her feel more like a friend rather than our guide, yet she was full of suggestions and tips to help us all on our way. We experienced a few set backs in the tour but this did not phase Tina, she just got on with things and arranged alternative activities to ensure we were not impacted, Tina was attentive throughout and our experience and satisfaction was her main priority which was testimony to how much she cared about her whole group having the best experience she could provide. I believe Tina could make anyone have a great time with her warm and bubbly outlook on things! She’s 1 in a million.

    I enjoyed my experience in the 12 day tour starting in Bangkok and ending koh phangan. My girlfriend and I got the chance to spend time in some pretty breathtaking places including beaches, sunset viewpoints and my personal favourite khao sok water bungalows. Tina is a great tour guide and a warm caring individual and to top it off, great company. She spent alot of time getting to know those that were on her tour and catered to our needs without hesitation. There was a few hiccups along the way that led us astray from our tour itinerary. which might i add were out of Tina's hands but she efficiently put things right without it causing too much of a hinderence. Overall the tour was good, I expected a little more for my money and a few more people to get to know as there was only 3 of us, but I have took some good memorys away from this experience. Thanks again Tina and TruTravels

    Tina was a great tour guide. We felt like she was one of us, very easy to get along with and spent a lot of time with us. Tina gave us lots of tips on where the best places were to go and often came along when technically it was 'free time', which we really appreciated. She also took lots of photos of us doing the activities, which was great because we wouldn't have been able to take them out selves. Howevere we were a little disappointed with the Tru Travels tour. There were only 6 people on our tour including me and boyfriend. 3 of them were on a different tour that finished 4 days earlier than ours, which only left 3 people, this was disappointing as we opted for the tour so we could meet more people. A few things didn't not go to plan, all things out of Tina's control and she did try her best to make the alternatives work for us. We felt overall that tour was not very good value for money, although we loved meeting Tina and she deffinitly improved our time with Tru Travels.

    Sammy was a great tour guide who made everything fantastic. We stayed in some really nice places with a lot of activities going on but also with enough freedom to do what we wanted. If we had any issues, Sammy was there to get them sorted straight away. Sammy really made the trip exceptional and we would definitely go again!!! Thank you Sammy!!!
