The places visited on the tour gave one a good feel for the country and a good idea of the people and their culture. Activities were a plus especially the trip to Ha long bay and private island stay. Definitely value for money
This was my first holiday were I decided to travel as part of a tour group, purely for the fact that I have not heard great things in the past about many tours but decided to give this one a try. I am really really glad that I did. Thailand Experience 11 day was life changing, and this was definitely partly due to our exceptional group leader Jake!
Our group was small and our leader Olivia was able to give a very personal tour. She was very informative and fun to be around with, she made sure we tried unique foods that were specific to the region, and gave great suggestions in what to do when we had options to explore on our own. Thailand was beautiful! The food, sights, temples and way of life was awesome and humble.
The trip was fabulous. Really enjoyed not having to stress about anything the way you would if you were travelling solo! I enjoyed the mix of urban-rural settings, modes of transportation, and the mix of traditional sight seeing and outdoor recreation. The last few days in Phi Phi islands were very relaxing and restful after such a busy tour.
