I volunteered with Tru experience travel and did a 4 week road trip too. I visited Cambodia Thailand Vietnam and Laos. I have had the most amazing experience of my life. I was fully immersed in the community as described by the company. I made friends from all over the world and became very close with locals who were just the sweetest people on earth. I can not wait to head back in Feb with Tru Experience Travel again, I spent alot of time speaking with the director Hannah who is an absolute gem. She has been wonderful to me and all my calls and emails every second of the day lol. Thank you everyone.

How can this program be improved?
There is always room for improvement, but not here its perfect, they have not tampered with the reality of the south east asian community they work with.
Yes, I recommend this program

I spent a year in Australia Sydney. Tru Experience offered an intro week to Australia in Sydney. It was a fun filled week with a new group of friends all in the same boat, looking to work and travel in Australia. The intro week was laid back and fun visiting the harbor, party nights, secluded beaches and huts, and making amazing friends. My group was of 18 people from all over the world. The purpose of this intro to Aus was to give us a great week ready for our time in Oz. We set up bank accounts, mobiles , registered to job sites, there is an office we can go to anytime, to sort out cvs and apply for jobs.You make friends with your new crew in intro week, and set off to rent your new home together, the team also help you in the direction of places to rent. You become a member of a large job organisation across Oz where you are pretty much guaranteed to get a job,there are absolutely thousands, from bar staff to office work. The team are on the other end of the phone, or at the end of an email throughout your stay in Oz. If you want to work and Travel Australia I highly recommend this Intro week to Australia.

How can this program be improved?
It would be great if the week could be 2 rather than 1. But nothing in the itinerary should be changed.

I had never been abroad in life, I have only ever done family holidays in the UK. I suffered from really bad anxiety and I have also had a dream to go abroad and volunteer in Cambodia. I had to really prepare myself for this trip emotionally. I had communication with the manager of Tru experience Travel, Hannah. Hannah was really amazing from my first initial contact with the company. I had 1000000's of questions that Hannah would answer for me almost straight away no matter the time of day or night, the customer service before I had even booked the trip was incredible, I had a really good feeling about this company, they weren't just trying to sell me an experience but they wanted to make sure it would be the right one for me and my anxieties. After booking my trip the communication with Hannah remained as strong as it was at the very beginning, she got me mentally prepared for the trip as she had been there herself and knew exactly what may be a culture shock to me. I have since returned and had the most incredible experience of my life. I am still in touch with the Tru team at time and plan to head back to Cambodia this summer. Not only did the team give me the experience of a life time, they were catered to my needs and wants it is very person centred and they do everything they can to enable you have a comfortable and great experience with them and the communities. I don't feel I was that shocked when I got to Cambodia as the Tru team had already prepared me and I kind of then had an idea in my mind as to what I should expect. My experience on a whole has been the best experience of my life hence why I am going back this summer ahhaha. If you have a fear or some kind of anxiety I am certain one of these trips will help you over come it.

Not only do you get an amazing experience the prices arent bad either. Hhahaha .
