I thought it was a great experience. My girlfriend and I had decided to go to Thailand as a last minute type of trip, we both have very busy schedules and G Adventures provided us an opportunity for a backpacking adventure with very little planning required. I highly recommend G Adventures for anybody looking to travel, as we met a lot of great people and the tour guide was very helpful.

I joined the Thailand island hopping tour in Bangkok on the 10/02/07. I have nothing but positive comments to make about my trip. The high points for me was the interaction with the people, I especially loved how much Thai culture we soaked up. The use of local transport/accommodation and restaurants was an absolute treat. This in my opinion is the best way to see any country. Last but not least having a tour leader like AJ with such experience, knowledge and patience made the trip for me. AJ was a true professional and if he is the caliber of tour leaders G Adventures employ I will definitely be booking another G Adventure. The only low point for me was leaving!!

Overall this was an excellent and exciting introduction to Thailand for us. I liked the variety of adventures and the way we were eased into the lack of creature comforts near the end bit by bit!!
