unforgettable experience

10/10

hey there,
I joined a volunteer program in Fiji. For 3 weeks I was working in a kindergarten/primary school and it was one of the best things I've ever done!
It all started with the great staff and all the other volunteers and continued with a lovely home in a share house and of course the super cute students. Teaching was heaps fun and I learned a lot about the Fijian culture, traditions and way of life. It was an amazing feeling to make the kids happy with such small things like bringing new pencils, they give you so much love and happiness its unbelievable. I also really enjoyed being part of a massive international volunteer family. We made weekend trips together and learned to cook traditional Fijian meals, we spent every free minute together. And all that from day 1.
So if you're still not sure about becoming a volunteer (wherever you wanna go), it's definitely worth every Cent, you gonna make so many unforgettable experiences and meet people from all over the world! Tru Experience Travel helped me with all my questions and the application, what made everything way easier.
Thank you!

An extraordinary Christmas in China

10/10

This is the second time I join volunteer travel with Tru Experience Travel. However, this is my first Christmas spent in a country that most people do not celebrate Christmas. I was a bit worried and struggled at first but turns out that it was a marvellous and unforgettable Christmas for me,

On weekdays, I taught in a kindergarten with other volunteers. The kids are very cute and sweet. I am amazed by their willingness to participate in our class.

On Christmas Day, we had a simple but cozy christmas party in the old house. Some children in the village came over to play and there are laughters everywhere. I really like the atmosphere.

Although it is cold in the village, the staff and volunteers are so nice and warm. Indeed, I had a great time there.

I wish I will be there again next Christmas!! :)

My AMAZING Experience

10/10

I booked my experience with Tru Experience Travel, to the Philippines volunteer Teaching Palawan. I can truly say it was the most amazing experience that i have ever had, From the very beginning booking my trip with Tru Experience travel i spoke with Hannah she was brilliant. Giving me information about the different destinations i had in mind she never ones rushed me and made a sales pitch like the other companies i looked at. Hannah was all about helping me find the right volunteer project that suited my needs and always easy to get into contact with. Hannah also contacted me when i got to the volunteer project to see if everything was ok and if i need anything else just to contact her or the volunteer coordinator. The volunteer house was something out of a dream it was on the beach, in the mornings when you step out of your front door it was a vision of beauty with your feet on golden sand and clear blue sea waves. Teaching in Palawan I can now say with confidence that I can teach a whole class of children, the children are adorable and cute it was a pleasure every time i would teach them. Most importantly by going to the volunteer project it has connected me with whole entire different group of people halfway across the world from the local Filipino people to the friends i made from the volunteer house welcomed me with open arms. i have nothing but happy memories and a place that has stolen my heart. i cant wait to return, something that i will 100% be doing again. i just what to add Glory and Helen that work in the volunteer house are incredible. Truly the best thing i have ever done thanks Tru Experience Travel for an amazing time.

Zhangjiang International Culture Exchange

10/10

My experiences with TRU Experience travel have been very good and the member of staff that I was in contact with during the planning stage was very helpful.
I would say the International Culture Exchange has been life changing to everyone on the programme but especially for me.
Through the trips, teaching, socialising and the opportunities that were available to me I have improved myself and become a better person.
The people I've met and the experiences I've had on this programme are memories that I will never forget.

How can this program be improved?

More structure and planned days would be nice since some days weren't planned until the day before which is stressful for both volunteers and organisers
