Shout out to India who made this trip AMAZING! Intro Travel really has gone above and beyond to accommodate for my 12 day Thailand trip. Everything was so well organised. I was quite nervous as I had not completed anything like this before, although I was made to feel welcomed by everybody and I soon settled in. If you want a diverse, immersive and social experience in quite honestly, one of the most beautiful countries in the world, then this is the place to be. I could not recommend this experience enough. From participating in a traditional Thai cooking class in Bangkok to relaxing on the island of Koh Phangan, this was a well rounded trip with a never ending amount of jaw dropping experiences. I would rate more than 5* if possible. To summarize this experience in one word, I would say PERFECT. As always, โชคดี!

I had the best time ever on the Intro Japan tour and got to experience Japan with the best group. I got to tick everything off my Japan bucket list in seeing some epic nature, tasting the many Japanese cuisines, arcades and my most favourite was the samurai class where I wielded a 400 year old sword.

The accommodation was exceptional and great value for money. We stay at many different types from a capsule hostel, hotels and a Ryokan which is traditional Japanese inn and has its own Onsen!

The difference places we go to on the tour make you feel you've seen all the different sides of Japan from the futuristic cities to the natural parts.

Our guide Nathan welcomed me at our first accommodation, making me feel comfortable instantly. He also navigated us throughout Japan without fault and safely as well as showing us a great time!

5* from me!

I didn't know what to expect when joining the tour as it was my first tour. Now I've done it, it was definitely the right decision and a great introduction to Japan. INTRO have done a super job getting a balance between culture, activities, food, meeting locals and FREE TIME! Free time was very important for me as there were things I wanted to see on my own in certain cities and this tour allows that as well as doing group activities.

We also done things which I would of never done myself if I travelled Japan such as seeing the Snow Monkeys and Sushi Making class which ended up being my highlights!

I will definitely be travelling with INTRO again and thank you for giving me a holiday of lifetime!

Great tour in Japan! Adam showed us some real highlights of Japan, felt like we saw so much in just over 2 weeks. Kyoto was a beautiful city, definitely my favourite with all the temples and culture. The food is incredible everywhere, and we went to so many different types of restaurants that we got to try all of the best Japanese food – you can’t beat the sushi, but the Ramen was so good as well! Watching the monkeys play in the snow up in Nagano was also a special moment that I won’t forget. Thanks for the great tour, would definitely recommend!

Initially started out on the 9 day tour but Kyle the tour leader was so warm and welcoming, combined with the fantastic fellow tour members who have become lifelong friends, I just had to extend on to the 12 days. Going as a solo traveller for the first time, everyone was so welcoming and approachable. I feel like everyone gelled and we went from strangers on day 1 to practically becoming family towards the end. Kyle our leader was on hand to sort out any issues and answer any questions, and you'll be lucky to be on his tour! Just watch out for his infectious dance moves!

What is your favorite travel memory?

It’s very hard to name one favourite travel memory, as no trip is ever the same, and even if you return to the country you’ve been before, you’ll always have a new favourite memory!

But if I have to name one, it’s going to be the volcano sunrise hike in Bali! Watching the sun come up on the horizon from the top of an active volcano is such a once in a lifetime experience!

How have you changed/grown since working for your current company?

I’ve realised that travelling with a group is the best way to travel!

Whenever I used to go travelling, I would go all by myself and try to meet new people along the way. But that isn’t always easy if you only have a week or two to spend in a country.

But if you come with a group of like minded people from day one until the end, it changes the whole experience completely!

IT’S DOUBLE THE FUN IF YOU CAN SHARE IT WITH SOMEONE!

What is the best story you've heard from a return student?

“Adrian! We’re planning a reunion with the whole group next month! You need to come!”

Hearing that people who were strangers to each other before coming on a tour, are now becoming best friends and planning reunions and next trips together, is just the best thing you can possibly hear from someone.

If you could go on any program that your company offers, which one would you choose and why?

I would definitely choose the 13-day Japan Adventure!

Japan is just this this country that blends in ultramodern cities, very rich history and culture with some of the most beautiful nature as well!

From the Bullet train ride, to a Samurai experience, Mount Fuji, Sushi making class and so much more!
This tour has all you need when you come to Japan!

What makes your company unique? When were you especially proud of your team?

#SmallChange

It’s our initiative towards responsible travel. We not only encourage people to reduce single-use plastics, participate in beach cleanups, but also support local communities and engage in cultural exchange.

It’s great to see how people start using reusable water bottles, buy locally made products, or teach local people few English words.

What do you believe to be the biggest factor in being a successful company?

To be a successful company, you have to be passionate about what you do and make sure you keep your employees happy.

I believe that if you’ll keep these things in order, your employees are going to go that extra mile for you and your customers, no matter what problems you’ll face, you’ll always get through it.
