"I was very glad that I signed up with this tour especially since I didn't have any time to plan anything on my own because I had a big exam to study for. About 2 / 3 of your days are planned so don't worry about having too much or too little luggage.They plan just enough of the day so you can rest if you're tired, or you can do something else at night if you have enough energy left. The real advantage of signing up with these guys is that you hang out with a local tour guide.He will tell you which foods to try out , interesting things about the country, and tidbits you wouldn't get by traveling without a tour guide. You will really get a sense of how people live in Thailand. This is something hard to understand without someone else to lead you around the place.All in all, I'm really glad I did it with these guys. The tour guides (one in Bangkok, one in Chiang Mai) were extremely friendly, informative, and humorous.Here's a video if you want to see my trip!"

This was a school group from South Africa, and I accompanied the group as a tour leader. I found Essential Travel to be extremely helpful and professional, and the actual arrangements worked flawlessly, which is always a huge relief when dealing remotly with complex travel arrangements for a group. I would highly recommend their services, and Im sure that youll feel comfortable that your arrangements will translate into well-arranged and executed travel."
