We enjoyed the variety of the tour - from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok to the more peaceful jungle and beach areas. One highlight was staying in the Jungle Rafts on the River Kwai and swimming in the river. There was no electricity and at night the rafts were lit by oil lamps which added to the atmosphere. We were able to feed an elephant before breakfast on both mornings. Sleeping in the train was a new experience and the bedding was very clean. Staying at the Yaowawit School was very memorable. The children were very friendly and happy to play. We also met the founder of the school and learned about its origins. Our tour leader Tui was excellent and kept us organised and on track at all times.

There were so many! In Bangkok the cooking class and I don't even like cooking at home but from shopping in the market for ingredients to cooking each dish it was all fantastic. The River Kwai was another, especially floating down the river in our life jackets, the elephants bathing and the food. Cycling and eating pomolos (like a sweet grapefruit) from the trees was also a highlight. The night train was a great experience and the variety of accommodation from pretty basic to very comfortable in Koh Samui meant we experienced a variety of Thai life. Visiting a school made us feel like royalty as the chilren were all around us smiling, shaking hands and giving out friendship bracelets. We showed them we could count to 10 in Thai and tought them to sing heads, shoulders, knees and toes! They also invited us to stay for lunch and we had great conversations with the children not having a clue what we were saying! Meeting Thai people on the homestay was great as they were so welcoming and buying turtles at the market to release into the water. The climb up to the top of the mountain on the boat trip from Koh Samui was another highlight even though it was hard work and sea kayaking on the same trip. The food in general throughout the holiday was also really good and incredibly cheap as were drinks. There was not one thing that I didn't enjoy. Just brilliant. He is welcoming, friendly, helpful, very funny and goes above and beyond what is expected of him. He arranged lots of activities for us not in the itinery and stayed with us on optional activities that we chose to do so we always felt completely looked after. He made sure that nut free food was served to my allergic daughter and gave fantastic briefings! On our last night he even stayed out with us to 1.30am despite having to get up just 4 hours later for the airport run. He is incredibly patient, clearly loves his job and should get tour leader of the year. He's the best one we've ever had!
