I recently went with them for Meghalaya trip. Overall, it was quite a good trip. The guide during our trip was very friendly and understanding. The group was of around 12 people. Stay was at Homestay hotels which were quite pleasant. Breakfast and Dinner were covered most of the days.

My first solo trip was to Thailand. I have known many people going to Thailand and covering beach locations only. I was lucky to witness something more than just beaches. We got to live in a million year old rainforest and did lot of adventures there. Not many ppl have heard of this hidden gem which is worth a visit when in Thailand. This place has been the highlight of my entire trip apart from the fun pub crawl, snorkeling, exploring islands and loads of shopping. I would love to do many more trips like these with trips n tales. Thanks for coming up with such unique itineraries.

I did a solo backpacking trip to Europe post pandemic. Since it was my first solo trip to an international destination I was a bit nervous.. But everything before the trip and during the trip was well taken care of by the team. I just had to pack my bags and leave. No hassle about anything. I got good recommendations about the restaurants, activities and things to do and see. It was overall a well arranged trip. A trip that's closest to my heart!

Our trip to Andaman was super well organized by Trips and Tales. The inter-island commute, the stays and all the activities were sorted in a hassle-free manner. I would definitely recommend Trips and Tales for a smooth and care-free travel.
