Overall great experience! Wide variety of places and activities. Very diverse tour group. Don’t be afraid of the overnight sleeper train, it is comfortable. Book your own room if you’re traveling solo and can!

Our leader Ben was exceptional, making the trip to South Thailand truly remarkable. Her knowledge of the region, friendly demeanor, and ability to handle unexpected situations added immense value. South Thailand's beauty, from stunning beaches to vibrant culture, was showcased brilliantly. A big thumbs up for an unforgettable experience!

It was a great trip, had plenty of activities so take it easy with any optional activities as it can get pretty tiring! Snorkelling in Phi Phi Islands was the highlight!
