Mackenzie's review for another Intro Travel tour
“Thai Intro exceeded all of my expectations, I loved it! We had the best group leader, she was really bubbly and enthusiastic. But also made us feel really safe during my first solo trip. I loved Khao Sok and nights out in Ko Pagnan The speed boat was also so much fun! It was the best experience and highly recommend it to ever!! I made the best friends on this trip.”

“I had the best time ever! Morgan my group leader helped us learn a lot about Balinese culture! The locals made us feel very welcome. The 15 day tour is worth it! You don't want to miss Nusa Lembongan! Snorkelling with manta rays was certainly something I'd never done before and most memorable! Overall, this tour made for an unforgettable two weeks!”

Victoria's review for another Intro Travel tour
“I did the Intro Bali tour and just got back yesterday! I can honestly say it was an absolute dream! Candice was my group leader, she made me feel right at home from personally picking me up from the airport, to her vast knowledge on all the areas, different restaurants, the nightlife in the area and provided lots of helpful tips during the whole trip. Myself and the whole group saw her as not only a fab group leader but an amazing friend too! This adventure was such a once in a lifetime experience which as given me so many incredible memories and new brilliant friends. It has exceeded all my expectation and had the most incredible itinerary. Which gave us all such a diverse experience, such as the amazing nature surrounding you. (Beautiful sunset, monkeys, dolphins, ect.)”
