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.
