Ed's review for another TruTravels tour
“There are not enough positive adjectives in the English language to describe how great this tour was. It was made completely unforgettable by our great tour leader Papsii. His humour, his experience and his organisation added so much value to this tour. There was something for everyone on the itinerary and everything was well paced. Thank you to Papsii, the wonderful intern Ming and Tru Travels for this singular, unique trip of a lifetime!!”
