Gun and Mark were very fun & responsible and always made sure that I was accommodated for with finding vegan food for where ever we went. Gun always made sure we had nothing to worry about and just wanted us to have a great time :0) My favourite..."

    For me this tour was the perfect mix between adventures at daylight and various parties in the night! My favorite memory is the half moon party which was just a great party with a great group!

    I really loved it! Having everything already arranged made things so much easier and more relaxed. Had activities planned everyday. Group leaders, Delaney and Papsi, had the right amount of control on the group and would organize all the activities and nights out for us but made it clear we could do our own thing as well. I really loved kayaking in Khao Sok and being part of the rescue team when some people went the wrong direction. I really enjoyed the Half Moon Party. Overall it was very good!

    It was an amazing experience with a diverse and wonderful group and fun group leaders, Delaney and Papsi, that were very responsible and accommodating. My favorite activity was visiting the Khao Sok National Park and the floating bungalows and all the group bonding activities as well! 10/10 would do it all again!

    This was a really good intro to Thailand. It made it completely stress free as everything is already planned and booked for you and the local knowledge of the leaders, Delaney and Papsi, helps you see the hidden gems of places you might have missed otherwise! My favorite activities were the quadbiking in Koh Phangan or the kayaking in the Khao Sok national park. All in all , I really enjoyed the 12 days but there might be space to cram in a few more activities

    I have had an amazing time doing the 12 day experience in Thailand. The two tour guides (Everett, Papsi) went above and beyond to ensure that we were having the best time. My favourite activities during the trip were the floating bungalows, the boat trip party on Koh Phangan and the last day where we went all around koh phangan!

    Very fun activities during the whole of this tour. Both group leaders (Gun and Mark) made a HUGE effort to make the experience as good as possible. My favourite activity and memory of this tour was Khao Sok National Park and staying the night in the floating bungalows.

    Such a great experience, much better than other tours that I have done! Amazing leaders, and they were always there to help you when you needed it. Khao Sok national park was amazing, and I loved quad biking through the jungle - this should definitely be added to the tour permanently. This is definitely a bit of a party tour, but its ok not to drink, - you don't feel left out at all. ! I would do another TruTravels tour.

I loved our stay at Echo Beach Backpackers Hotel as well as meeting new people and making lifelong friends. My other thoughts and feedback about the trip are - to maybe be given a printed itinerary at the beginning of the tour, and I would love to stay at Khao Sok and additional night (because of how beautiful it was) x
