The Backpacking Tour Sri Lanka has been the best experience ever! I arrived in Sri Lanka and from that moment on Dam and Sam took care of everything. I did not have to worry about a thing. They welcomed me with a smile at the airport and took me to the first accommodation in the very comfy van. They made sure that the whole group had a great time. The itinery was a perfect mixture of cultural experieneces, sporty activities (if you want to), relaxing time at the beach and so much more. Dam introduced us to Sri lankan food and explained so many things along the way. His knowledge is incredible. You can really tell that he is passionate about his job and there was not a single question he could not answer.
Our group was also very lucky to have Sam, our driver. He was always there to get our luggage and get us to the next place safley. Both,Sam and Dam were absolutely considerate and would even help with individual requests and if you had a problem they solved it! I absolutely loved my time here, especially the surfing lesson at the beach and the evenings we spent together. We came as strangers and leave as friends- all thanks to Dam and Sam!

Did the backpacking Thailand tour and it was incredible. There were so many great activities and we saw some stunning places. S was our tour guide and he was honestly the best

Just back from the most amazing 3 weeks in Thailand. I can't reccomend this tour enough it was so well organised and such an excellent way to experience an amazing country, trying all the wonderful food and exploring so many different areas!
The trip wouldn't have been the same without our tour guide S, he went above and beyond for our group and made our experience so wonderful and one we will never forget! He really looked after us and gelled the group together.
Also shout out to our driver Benz who really took care of us and made the travelling around so stress free. When our train broke down Benz came to pick us up and drove the extra 7 hours to take us to the next destination.
Thank you so much to S and benz for making this an experience of a life time!

I have just finished my tour of Vietnam and it has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Huy our tour guide was amazing and was so happy to show us his beautiful country. Huy was so kind and helpful in every way and our experience would not have been the same without him. We all became like a little family and in the end we have made friends for life. I would highly recommend anyone to do the Backpacking tour of Vietnam, whether you are traveling alone or in a group as it allows you to meet so many new people. I have seen the beauty of Vietnam and would love to return some time in the future

The tour of Thailand is honestly one of the best tours you can go on!
S (the tour guide) went out of his way to make sure we all had the best time and even adapted the tour as we went along to make sure everyone saw and did everything they wanted to do. If you needed the toilet or food he would get you there in 5 minutes!

As a female solo backpacker I couldn’t have felt more safe. I felt immediately comfortable in a completely new country. Special shout out to Ben and Krit (the drivers) who were absolutely amazing!

If you are looking to go to Thailand, definitely choose this company!

I’ve been on two tours with Backpacking Tours now (Vietnam and Sri Lanka). Both times were two of the best experiences of my life and would recommend it to absolutely anyone.

Dam knew everything about everything and whatever the question was he always had the answer, I’ve never met someone who knows so much about their country. They both helped us out on so many different occasions and bent over backwards for us so we had the best experience possible. Whatever issues we had they always sorted them straight away. We couldn’t have asked for a better guide and driver and I’ll forever miss them.
