Jam packed itinerary but the experiences were worth it. If you’re on the fence about going I recommend you do it because it was worth it! I gained a lot of experiences I wouldn’t have otherwise. Everything was organized and on time/
What an unreal trip! The guides, places, people, food, adventures; I loved every minutes of it. Highly recommend especially for first time backpackers in Asia.
The trip was well organised and each activity ran smoothly. I feel like I have made friends for life on the trip and will be booking with grabatour again in the near future! The group leaders were very welcoming and genuinely had our best interests at heart!!
Would definitely recommend for any solo traveller. You’ll make friends for life
The trip exceeded my expectations. It was nice to not have to worry about finding transportation or what rooms to rent. All the activities offered were great and I would not have been able to find them all for without grabatour and at the great prices they were offered for.
