Operator

Tru Travels

The South East Asia Backpacker Community have tried and tested adventures across the region and handpicked a selection of only the BEST companies to work with.

Why we chose Tru Travels

Tru Travels was founded by two English backpackers, Mark and Joe, who wanted to share some of the amazing experiences that they’d had whilst backpacking in Southeast Asia with others. We (Nikki) first met them 10 years ago on the little island of Koh Phangan in South Thailand, when their travel company was just a dream.

Nowadays, their tours are some of the best-loved group trips on the planet and they receive hundreds of 5-star reviews every day! Their success is 100% down to the fact that their tours are made by travellers, for travellers!

At the end of an adventure with Tru Travels, people tell them that they have just had some of the best weeks of their lives! This really is the number one goal of Tru Travels and why they set up the company in the first place – to give people the time of their lives!

Tru Travels firmly believe that travel can not only change peoples lives for the better, but it also has the potential to change the world! Countless times they say they have seen people change for the better in many ways after a travel adventure, be it: opening their eyes and minds to new cultures and ways of thinking, curing previously incurable shyness, developing new social skills, discovering hidden talents, picking up new hobbies or even seeing the world in a more positive and happy light!

Travel is, without a doubt, the university of life. But it’s not just the travellers whose lives have the potential to be changed; the local people, the communities we travel within, the environment and the world at large can also benefit from the travel industry if the people and companies involved do it right.
