Tru Travels 14 Day Thailand Island Hopper

I have been on the Tru Travels 14 day Thailand Island Hopper tour with Arthur as my tour guide, and it has been amazing! The tour took us to Bangkok, Khao Sok National Park, Koh Phangan, Koh Tao, Phi Phi and Phuket. There were lots of activities included in the tour; including boat trips to snorkel, ziplining, archery and opportunities for additional activities. All of the accommodation was brilliant; very high standard and great locations. Our tour group was small, starting with 5 people and then ending with just 3. However this was not a problem at all, I enjoyed the small group and the fact we could get to know each other better. Arthur was an excellent tour guide! He was always involved in our activities, encouraged us to be fully engaged in the tour and he also came out to party with us. And he captured our tour with some amazing pictures. Thank you Arthur for an amazing trip! I would recommend Tru Travels to anyone wanting to visit the Thailand Islands, and I hope to book another Tru Travels tour soon!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
As a solo traveller I would recommend this tour to other solo travellers, as well as those travelling with others. Biggest bit of advice, don’t hold back when you are travelling. Throw yourself in the deep end and have fun!

The best 2 weeks of my life!

I have recently returned home from the 14 day Thailand island hopper tour & I couldn’t recommend it enough! I had never travelled solo or to Asia before so I figured booking a group tour for half of my time in Thailand would be a great & safe idea and I was not disappointed! The whole tour exceeded my expectations and I would do anything to re live it all again! It’s truly one of the best things I have ever done and I already want to book another Tru Travels tour for next year! I loved all of the places we visited, it was a great mix of planned activities and free time, my favourite places however would have to be Koh Sok NP, Bottle beach & Phi Phi! As quite a shy person I felt a little nervous starting the tour, however this completely changed once I met the amazing tour guides and rest of the group! Mickey and Arthur are amazing at what they do, and the tour just wouldn’t have been the same without them! The whole group adored them so much and they really went above & beyond to make sure we have an amazing trip! The post tru travels blues definitely kicked in as soon as the tour was over and I don’t think they will ever go!

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
The most nerve racking thing was starting the tour, especially after a week of being alone! However everyone in the group was super friendly and we all got on very well very quickly! And the tour guides were simply amazing! They made me feel so at ease, that my nerves soon disappeared!

A cultural and amazing experience

I had a great time on the 14 day tour, it was very insightful and cultural. Personally for me, I was bored of seeing temples one after an another. Once I saw one I more or less felt I’d seen them all, I chose to opt out on one day of seeing them to do my own thing. Mickey and Andy were absolutely amazing, so upbeat and well organised - can’t praise them enough. My favourite parts were, the bamboo raft, cooking class, elephant sanctuary and ofcourse the nights out. I’m not a huge lover of outdoorsy activities so I did struggle with the trekking, for the waterfalls and for the hill tribe (although I thought the hill tribe was an amazing experience overall - just getting there was hard). I was really impressed with how much food was included in the tour and thought that was really helpful with a budget.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Meeting the group! I had anxiety for days before but I made great friends for life and it made me realise no matter how different everyone is, you’re all in it together so will get on as a team!

Amazing

Amazing experience! Couldn’t fault anything, everything was very well organised, the elephants was the best experience for everyone. The things that we did was included every day, although some people didn’t enjoy one thing we had the option whether to do it or not. Mickey and Andy really made my experience the best it could be, the made any down day a happy day and always made sure everyone was smiling. They are so helpful and such kind people I wouldn’t ask anyone else to be my tour guide as they really did it for me every single day, I know I will have friends for life. Although a few people in our group did get sick, Andy and mickey was always there to help and provide the best advice and information to what maybe could be wrong. I always felt safe wherever I was and I felt mickey and Andy played a big part in that and I thankyou them for that also.

What would you improve about this program?
Less temples and more activities. I feel we missed out on a lot of other things and spent too much time on the culture

The best time ever!!

I would never have experienced some of the things I have done without going on this tour with true travels! Everything that was included was fantastic!
Mickey and Arthur are true assests to the company, their personalities bringing every moment to life! They couldn’t do enough for us and even when the tour finished they were at hand to help if we needed!
My experience of Thailand has been fantastic and I will definitely be recommending Trutravels to friends and family!
There was a great mix of experiences, Hikes to view points, chill time, snorkelling and boat parties! It was great that Mickey and Arthur joined us on nights out too! Also that we got to experience Bangkok and patong as well as the fantastic islands with their beautiful views! It was great that we were giving an option for cerythibg, although I don’t know why you would want to not to what was planned as all activities were fab!
Thank you for such a great time and to Mickey and Arthur xxx

What would you improve about this program?
The only thing I would say to improve is that when arriving at Bangkok airport it was early hours of the morning and can be intimidating! When met by true travels we were just bundled in a car that had no signs on and so was a little frightening trusting this! However, this car got me to the hotel and was a carry safe journey, just intimidating when in the dark!

“See It Off”

I joined on to this trip late after seeing how much fun the group were having at the same hostel as me. It was quickly arranged with the leaders for me to join the group.

Dean and Papsii couldn’t have made me feel more welcome and so did the group. I had such an amazing 8 days with everyone. The view points and beaches were incredible and the partying was just something else.

Papsii never failed to have a smile on his face and was always trying to make the group laugh! Same goes for Dean... top banter all week! You can tell that the two of them just absolutely love what they do and are so passionate about making the group happy. They were always happy to help with anybody questions and queries and Dean even helped me to plan my diving course after the trip had finished.
They really do know the best places to go for partying, food, shops, etc. There wasn’t anything about this trip that I didn’t enjoy.
I honestly couldn’t recommend the trip more for anybody considering it!

Northern Thailand

Tru Travels organized an amazing 14 days in tour Northern Thailand. The two weeks flew by with two amazing guides (Arthur and Art) showing us their homeland. We had 18 mostly strangers in our group from USA and Europe and we all quickly became great friends. Tru Travels organized great daily activities and we all had a great time a night eat and drinking! I would definitely recommend Tru Travels, especially if you don’t want or can’t spend a lot of money! We got spend night in tribe village, feed and wash elephants, ziplined in jungle, went bamboo water rafting, shopped in floating markets, and had 3 amazing nights in Pai, biked around old historic capital, took a Thai cooking class, went to a watermark, saw lots of waterfalls and hiked a lot! All that in 14 days!!!

Tru Travels 14 day island hopper

The 14 day Island Hopper trip has been a trip of a lifetime. As a solo traveler I was hesitant to go but it was the best decision I ever made. Delaney and Oneway did a fantastic job keeping us safe and showing us a good time. They were always available if you had any questions, or wanted more info about a place. They also provided & encouraged us with the opportunity to take part in many different optional activities which was a nice added bonus. My favorite parts of this trip were Khao Sok National Park , Bottle Beach, and the Koh Tao pub crawl. I cannot recommend this tour enough. Click the button and go, you will not regret it! Thank you to both Oneway and Delaney for showing us such a good time, and thank you to the 21 strangers who have now become friends. Its been a slice.

Amazing Experience

Completed the 18 day Thailand island hopper tour in September and it was amazing! I only booked onto the tour a couple of days before it started, as I was already out in Bangkok, and I still received for much information about the trip before. Compared to others I’ve looked into it’s such good value for money as so many activities were included in the initial price. There was also a a great mix of cultural sites to see such as the temples in Bangkok as well as fun activities such as quad biking with my favourite being the pirate boat trip. My tour leaders also made the trip even more mean as both Bee and Delaney were super friendly and always there to help in any way possible, even spent a couple of days after the tour with Delaney as we got on that well.

18 day Thailand Island Hopper

One of the best experiences on my entire life!! I would 100% recommend this tour and tru travels to anyone who wants to travel. As a newcomer to travelling, I was slightly worried before coming out, but once I got here my tour guides instantly put me at ease. Arthur and Patty met me at the airport and were chatting to me like I’d know them for ages. Thailand is such a beautiful place and I would not have done half the things on this tour if I had travelled here without tru travels. My tour guides have made my experience the best it could have been. Thanks to Arthur, Benmore and Patty!! I’m ready to book my next tour with tru travels already and I haven’t even finished this tour yet!! I’m so happy with the experience tru travels and my tour guides have given me. 100% will be back again! Tash x

18 Days Ultimate Thailand experience

The Trip was increrible, i love every moment and every space of thailand, the both tour guides was such a good guys and i love them and the crew, the idea of visit every island and space in thailand was good, a bit exausting but at the end its worth, there is somethings u need to improve i will say in the next question, but at a overall review i will recommend this trip to everyone who wnats to go to thailand, cause if i did this trip alone i know i would visit at maxium half of the things i visit with the tour. The thing i liked most was the national park at the bangaloos, this was a unique experience i loved it and in my opinion they sould put more days in that place. Other place in 2nd place is the phiphi island, in my opinion we should be more days there and try to be there on the weekend, to get the best parties and activites :). and in 3rd place is bangkok, without the heat there place is, the night life there is really really crazy and in my opinion too we should spend at least one more night exploring the night life in there.

What would you improve about this program?
So there is one thing that makes me stressed in the trip was the thing that we need to travel many many times, I know that we need to do that if we want to visit every place, but at least try to put in good travels boats, good vans and that things, even if this cost a little more than the original price. Try to find maybe visit the same places but different schedules, and then u can put a flight in this trip making the travels less exausting. Thats it, without that everything was perfect, nothing to complain about. Cheers from brazil and i will miss alot this trip and the tour guys, both increrible persons :).

Thailand 14 day island hopper

A very memorable experience. We saw all the beauty of Thailand and tasted all the delicious food this country has to offer. I have no words to describe Gogi and Darrin. Two of the most lively, enthused and energetic boys I have ever met. They made me feel very comfortable and safe from our initial meeting and I truly believe I have made friends for life. Love you guys

Thailand 2018

Had the most AMAZING time with Gogi and Darrin. The island hopper was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. The places we were taken to, we would of probably never got to see if we didn’t book with TruTravels. Love that we get to stay in the weirdest, yet amazing places whilst on the tour. Some of the places we have been, friends and family can’t veleive they are real! (Even I had to pinch myself sometimes!) Gogi and Darrin were soo fun and genuinely cared about making our experiences great! They were always up for anything, and made every single person in the group feel like they belonged to the family we were! Met the best people and 100% some friends for life. Already beginning to plan my next trips. Had the best time ever.......... 😂❤️ ❤️
