Arthur & Whisky

Absolutely amazing 2 weeks on this tour made completely by the 2 tour guides, Arthur and Whisky have made this trip what it is full credit to both. Both were insightful and spoke well in there 2nd language. The best way I can put it is they made you feel like you were on a tour but it was like your mates leading it. Thoroughly enjoyed this tour from day 1 to day 14 . I never thought I'd come off this tour missing people especially the tour guides .. but they made me feel so welcome in there country.

14 day island hopper - Thailand! BEST TIME EVER!

From the moment we got to Bangkok airport to the last day of the tour in Phuket we didn’t stop smiling! Our tour guides, Arthur and Whisky, were a massive part of how great this tour is- teaching us loads about culture and traditions and the history but along the way pointing out the best places to go and what to see during our free time! Which by the way you get plenty of! It also helps that they are 2 of the most funniest people I have ever met! Always kept us entertained and laughing - our faces I think we’re permanently fixed to smiles- it is the land of smiles after all!! Sometimes there are long parts of travelling when we are going from island to island and you just want to get into bed, but the views and experiences, and the friendships you make, all make those long days worth it! Arthur and Whisky work really hard to make sure the whole tour is having the best time they can- which I can probably vouch for my whole tour- we all had the best time ever!!! They became our friends during the tour- they weren’t there just to tell us what we were doing. Each island is quite different, but all have different things that are amazing! My favourite islands were koh phangan at bottle beach- we basically had the beach to ourselves and took over the DJ and just had a massive party on the beach- with all our new friends from the tour it was one of the best nights! I also loved PhiPhi- it was filled with loads of little market stalls to get all your souvenirs and had such a beautiful beach! We went to a pool party and did a pirate boat trip- seeing places like Maya Bay and watching the sunset- one of the best boat trips of the tour! There are quite a few! Koh Tao was great too- a massive pub crawl which you don’t want to miss and great for snorkelling and diving! Koh Sok National park is breathtaking- you can’t even describe how crazy the views are- staying in floating bungalows and being in the lake all day - you feel like you’re in a scene from Jurassic Park or Kong! This tour was definitely one of the best things I’ve chosen to do- and I would definitely recommend it- I will definitely be booking other Tru Travels tours!!!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Try everything and do as much as you can! Have fun! Take in the surroundings- the lifestyle on the islands is so different to anything I’ve experienced- it’s almost a lovely reality check to become so laid back and not worry about things we would normally worry about it! - and ALWAYS carry tissues or loo roll with you- most toilets don’t have it- especially on the overnight train!

Thailand island hopper

Bee was amazing, couldn’t recommend her more. Always gave us little tips that we would have no idea about which proved really helpful! Also willing to take photos of anything and anybody! She was so cute and her English was very good, but it was also nice that she was Thai so she knew about the culture and could communicate well with people when we had problems

Thailand island Hopper

This was an Absolutely amazing trip, Inhad an incredible time and I would not of seen half of the things I did if I hadn’t of done this tour and I had tried to go alone. I have experienced some amazing things and also met some great people.
The accommodation was always clean and decent standard.
Our tour guide Bee was fantastic and so friendly, nothing was ever a problem for her.
I did feel for me that there was abit too many boat trips and sometimes after travelling for hours we did not have much time to get ready once we reached our accommodation before we had to meet up to go out again. The travelling can be tiring so it would of been nice to have abit of time to relax before meeting again, sometimes it was a rush to drop bags in room and quick shower then straight back out.

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
The sleeper train was definately an experience and very unfamiliar as we have nothing like this back home.

Our tour guide bee 🐝

The island hopper tour was incredible fully recommend to anyone, great value for money. What made it so memorable however was our tour guide bee she was so helpful and it would not have been the same without her! The first couple days we stayed in Bangkok visiting temples and enjoying city life, then we went to Khao sok national park which was floating bungalows! My favourite part of the trip by far! Then Koh pangyang we did bottle beach and then city side of it. Koh tao was next where we did boat trips and also in phi phi. We finished in phuket where it's a chilled couple days before departure. All the way through the tour bee was there for everyone with any help she could give. She is a credit to tru travels. Anyone thinking about doing it definitely should and if you get bee as your guide your in for a great time.

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?

14 Day Thailand Island Hopper 03/03/19

As soon as we arrived at the airport we were given a shuttle to the hotel which ran very smoothly and took away all the stress we were worried about travelling through Bangkok.
When we arrived at the hotel we were met by our tour guide Art who was very welcoming and made us feel comfortable straight away.
We enjoyed our days in Bangkok where Art led the tours on boats and around many different temples. We were also taken out for dinner at a nice restaurant where we met the rest of our group.
All the travel we took part in such as trains, ferry’s and buses ran extremely smoothly and were organised well.
All the hotels we stayed at were lovely and we enjoyed the accommodation we were given.
The different places we visited were all amazing and Art made sure we had the best experiences on all the different excursions etc.
Overall we had a great time and would do it again- we met some amazing people and our tour guide Art was one of them!
Couldn’t recommend it enough.

What would you improve about this program?
The only thing I would improve is the checking in process as it can sometimes take a while to check in at some hotels.

Trutravels 14 day island hopper

From the moment I first met our tour guide Arthur he made me feel very welcome, took an interest into where I was from and was very enthusiastic about the 2 weeks we were due to spend together. His knowledge of every destination was fantastic! And for such a young man. If there was any problems he made sure he was contactable by always updating us in the group chat as to where and what time we were due to meet, making the experience very organised. As for the accommodation it was top class! I didn't expect it to be so good! Along with the day trips, the beaches, the sunsets and the constant good vibes it was a fantastic experience for myself and I would highly recommend trutravels and in particular Arthur as a tour guide. He's a top fella!!

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!
