Overall the trip was really fun and positive experience. I feel like we have seen and done so much, but still had opportunities to rest. None of the activities disappointed and it was fun to try new things. I feel like the guide went out of his way to get everyone involved and make everyone feel comfortable, whilst also giving people freedom to do their own thing as well. Thailand itself was really beautiful and i think the wide range of activities gives a great insight of life here and it’s a good introduction. I feel like I have learnt a lot. Guide was approachable + friendly whilst remaining professional.
Incredible time, the leader was knowledgeable and knew all the coolest places to see, all the hidden gems to be found. Couldn’t have asked for a better trip
The trip was amazing. I stayed in Thailand for around a month and thought this would be a good opportunity to have some fun and get my feet wet. Well it was! Everything from chilling with some new friends in floating bungalows, to some of the best beach parties in the world.
This trip exceeded any expectations I could of had. Our guide was a friend before employee. The operations aspect was smooth & additional excursions and events were unexpected and amazing!
