    My trip was so much fun. I meet so many cool people along the way on this amazing tour. I got to see some of the most beautiful places in north Thailand an also experience some very fun activities. I now have a new Trufamily an can’t wait to join another tour. My tour guide Darrin was amazing an always made sure we had a good time every day. Thanks Tru Travels.

    I had such a great time on the northern Thailand tour I wish i could have stayed longer an joined the full moon party tour. The company is wonderful an the tour guides were fantastic. I really enjoyed the bamboo rafting river trip. Pai is one of the most beautiful places I have come across traveling. Thanks again to my tour leaders Darrin, Art, an Pat for an epic experience.

    From start to finish I had an amazing experience. Meet some amazing people along the way as well the ones on my tour. The elephant sanctuary was the highlight of my trip which I will never forget. I couldn’t have asked for such amazing tour leaders. They were such a good laugh throughout the entire trip. They made me feel very welcome. I will always recommend Tru Travels to everyone I know. Thanks again for such a life changing experience.

    I had a great time on this tour. The amount of activities was a great balance between relaxed an extremely fun. My favorite part about this tip was chilling out in the beautiful hot springs in Pai. The group leaders were such a great laugh an were massively involved in all the activities. I can’t wait to go on another Tru Travels tour.

    A truly incredible experience. On the jungle trek the encouragement was outstanding through out the day and the tour leaders shared experiences with us that made the trip even more enjoyable. Feeding an bathing elephants was by far the part about this tour, this experience was life changing. The group banter was endless an so much fun which made the tour with everyone I met even better. I can’t wait to join another tour with Tru Travels.❤️

    This was one of the best trips I’ve ever taken. Great way to start my north Thailand trip before I head down south for my 13 day full moon party tour. This north Thailand tour was the right balance between chilling out in the evnings an activities during the day. My tour guides made my experience very enjoyable and I always felt taken care of. The jungle track was one of my favorite parts about this trip. Waterfall hikes an swimming in rivers was so great. The Pai experience lived up to my expectations with the hot springs, the night life and the beauty of the whole town it self. The new friends I made were such fun loving people. I will recommend Tru Travels to evyone I know. Thank you for such a fantastic northern Thailand tour. #darrintourguide#jungles#love#tavel#lovelife#trutravels#newfriends#adventures

    This tour was a great way to se north Thailand, an has sparked my interest in wanting to join the south tour of Thailand with Trutravels. Darrin an Art were amazing tour guides. They made sure everything was safe an fun. I loved the elephant sanctuary were we got to feed an bath them in mud an a river. Another favorite part of the north tour was biking around the old temples in Ayutthaya. I had such a blast on this tour I can’t wait to come back an explore more country’s with TruTravels.

    Northern Thailand 14 days Review!! What a fantastic adventure I have had! Arthur, Mickey, and Mix were fantastic tour guides and every day was filled with fun, culture, and new experiences. This tour had a really good mix of history/culture (such as visiting temples and ruins) alongside adrenaline rushes and adventures (such as ziplining and swimming in waterfalls). I was in a group with seven other people and it has been great fun making friends along the way! As a solo traveller I was keen to have new experiences and independence whilst being within the safety of a tour setting. This tour provided this and I feel it has given me everything I was looking for. I felt really safe, but at the same time felt that I could use my own autonomy if I wanted to do extra activities along the way. What made the trip the most special was the tour guides. Their enthusiasm and good humour was fantastic fun, and they were really knowledgeable about everything we did during the trip. It wouldn't have been the same without their energy and pure happiness! They also provided lots of information before hand and along the way, and so we always felt confident about what to expect each day (and what to take with us!). An additional note on weather: I had been worried about September being the rainy season in Thailand. If you are thinking of booking this tour at this time of year then don't worry - it is still boiling hot, and when it rains it is very short lived and is not often at all! I want to say a massive thank you for a great experience. My favourite day was with the elephants! To anyone out there considering this tour I would tell you to book it now! I was scared to do so at first but I am so, so, so glad I did. Korb koon kaaaaaaa!!!! Kate Davies x
