5 stars all the way!

Just did the backpacking through Thailand December 2023 tour, and I cannot recommend this tour enough. It was the best thing I have ever done, the most amazing 3 weeks ever. Within those 3 weeks, there is so much to do. I never thought it was going to be as good as it was, and our tour guides S and Heart were fantastic from start to finish. They love to show you their country and are such fantastic tour guides. There is never a dull moment with these guys. Not only are they amazing tour guides, but they are also amazing friends and so full of knowledge. They know how to make you laugh every day. Even on our free days, they will help choose what to do and help book activities. They were amazing and made so much time for each and every person on tour and snapped the most amazing photographs every day along our tour. I would love to book another tour with these guys again.

I met some of the most amazing people throughout the December trip and hopefully looking forward to all meeting up again to make more memories!! Thailand is a beautiful country, and I really think everybody needs to experience this tour, no matter what age. Just do it, and you will not regret a single moment. I am so happy I got the opportunity to do it, and I would do it all again in a heartbeat. Amazing country and amazing people. Just book it and go. The tour is so well put together, the vans were comfortable, the van drivers were amazing, all the places we stayed throughout our trip were brilliant. The whole thing was a fantastic experience. 5 stars all the way.

Backpacking Thailand Tour

I had an incredible 3-week tour in Thailand, accompanied by my partner, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time. Our tour was led by two outstanding guides, S and Heart, who went above and beyond to ensure we had a memorable experience. Alongside us were 21 other fantastic individuals from various corners of the globe. Initially strangers, we bonded over shared experiences and have since become lifelong friends. The tour offered a perfect blend of city life, rich cultural immersion, and idyllic beach escapes, presenting the diverse beauty of Thailand in all its glory. I have absolutely nothing negative to report about our journey, except for the inevitable sadness that came with its conclusion. This experience has left me eager to explore more, and I am already planning to embark on another adventure with this company in the future. Their professionalism, attention to detail, and ability to create a friendly, inclusive environment has truly set them apart.

Best 3 Weeks of My Life

The past 3 weeks have been the best 3 weeks of my life. I couldn't be more sad it's coming to an end. The places we have been and seen are so beautiful, the food you experience is so tasty, and not to mention the crazy nightlife. Heart and S made this trip so brilliant with their blinding sense of humors. They've never failed to put a whopping smile on my face. The knowledge these tour guides have is outta this world! It will be something you will remember forever, and you will come away with friends for life. I couldn't recommend this enough. I'm already looking for trip 2 with the company, and our tour is already thinking of a reunion. Best thing you will ever do in your life.

Backpacking Through Thailand!

Wow! What an experience of a lifetime, BTT! Started off the tour in Bangkok with 25 strangers and left with 25 new family members! S and Heart, the tour guides, were absolutely amazing, very knowledgeable and organized. Nothing was too much trouble for them, and they are so much fun! The places we went to, activities we did, and the fun we shared I will remember forever. I would recommend this tour to everybody. I'd like to thank Backpacking Tours for the effort you guys put in making sure everyone gets the most out of Thailand. I can't wait to meet up with everyone again on our next backpacking tour. Much love xxx 5*+ recommended.

100% must-do!

I've recently completed a tour in Thailand and can sincerely declare it as one of the most memorable three weeks I've experienced. The company was outstanding, and our guide S, along with drivers Benz and Kit, ensured everything was seamless and filled with enjoyment. This trip has something for everyone, from breathtaking sights to cultural experiences, allowing for the creation of invaluable memories and the start of many wonderful new friendships. I wholeheartedly recommend this adventure to anyone looking for an enriching experience. It’s a 100% must-do.

Highly Recommend

I went on the March 2020 Thailand tour with Backpacking Tours, and it was an unforgettable experience. Despite being a small group of just six people, our tour guide, S, made it incredibly special. His sense of humour and in-depth knowledge about Thailand's culture and landmarks added a unique touch to our journey. We visited some truly breathtaking places, but the highlight for me was the elephant sanctuary. It was an eye-opening experience to see these majestic creatures in their natural habitat. Every aspect of the tour was well-organised and thoughtfully planned, making it a seamless adventure. The rich culture of Thailand was evident in every place we visited, and I found myself completely immersed in the experience. I can wholeheartedly say that this tour is something I'd highly recommend to anyone seeking an authentic and enjoyable exploration of Thailand.

Just go for it!

I've had the trip of a lifetime in the past three weeks in Thailand! The tour was very well organized, with great accommodation and tasty food. Along with an itinerary that exceeded my expectations, the trip wouldn't have been what it was without our tour guides Heart and S. Their energy and humor brought the group together - there was never a dull moment! I really appreciated all the incredible photos they took and how quickly they were shared with the group as well. Every day was a blast, and I've made lifelong friends from all over the world. Many of us are already planning another trip with Backpacking Tours. I can't recommend this company enough! Just go for it; you won't be disappointed.

Thanks BTT,

Backpacking Thailand

My partner and I have been in Thailand for over 2 weeks now, and the tour so far has been absolutely fantastic. With a week to go, we have already covered so much of what the country has to offer, and yet there is still more to do! We have faced challenges and done things we never thought we could, and now have some unforgettable memories. Our tour guide, S, and driver, Kit, made the entire experience so special and immersed us in Thai culture, answered questions about the country, and introduced us to friends, which made the trip even more memorable. I can truly recommend the tour to anybody wanting to travel the world, as this is a safe and effective way to do just that. The best trip I have ever been on, hands down, and some lifelong friends made too. 10/10.
