BANGKOK TO PHUKET

What an amazing and inexpensive trip! Audi was our guide and it was like having our own personal assistant. We didn't have to think about anything, just show up in the lobby of the hotel bringing what he told us we would need, and off we went! We saw and did everything! Elephant rides, floating market, monkeys, bamboo river ride, temples, buddhas etc. Then met in lobby once again and off we were to Phuket. Again we didn't have to ...

Overall my experience with this package and Affordable World was positive! I would recommend anyone doing one of their packages thoroughly review the excursions and hotels offered.

This trip was amazing, we had a really great guide. Her name is Panda, she was the best. Very helpful, informative and always made sure everyone got to see what they wanted to see. Most of the people in our group were 20-35 years old and we made really great friends. The hotels were all very nice and activities were fun.

By CHERYL CARLSON

BANGKOK TO PHUKET

Overall I think we got what we paid for. It was a reasonably cheap expense for a reasonably weak service. Upon arrival, myself and my travel partner were overbooked for our initially selected tour guide in Bangkok, so we were added to another group led by Sharky, who did a great job. However, this added to the confusion when we left for Phuket because while we were handed off to a local tour guide, it was very confusing for everyone ...
