Day 1: Medan

Location: Medan

Accommodation: Karibia Boutique Hotel Medan

Say ‘Halo’ because it’s time for your Sumatra tour to begin! There’s no more waiting around, you and your new TruFam are officially on their way! Once you’ve arrived, we’ll pick you up from the airport and be on your way to meet the rest of your group and your Travel Ninja. We’ll run you through the next jampacked, exciting 9 days, where we’ll explore dense rainforests, encounter majestic wildlife, soak in scenic routes, and connect with local communities. Spend the rest of your evening exploring the wonders of Medan, Sumatra has to offer before you begin your journey around Indonesia’s largest island.

Day 2: Medan/Bukit Lawang

Location: Medan

Meals Included: BREAKFAST

We hope you’re bright eyed and bushy tailed because we’re up early for our first full day! We’re off to the vibrant wilderness of Bukit Lawang, a beautiful spot nestled in the heart of Sumatra. Prepare to be captivated by the untamed beauty of nature as you set foot in this breath-taking paradise. Once we’re there, we’ll chill and grab a bite to eat before we head into the infamous Bat Caves (and we’re not talking the Christian Bale kind of bat either). You can watch in awe as the bats flutter and dance above your head and reveal their night-time rituals, it’s tru-ly an incredible experience. Get ready to start your own night-time ritual because after a full day, we’re going back to the accommodation for dinner and starting our first local night out!

Day 3: Bukit Lawang

Location: Bukit Lawang

Meals Included: BREAKFAST, LUNCH

Hopefully you’re not feeling too rough this morning because it’s an early start! Once we’ve had breakfast and fuelled up for the day, we’re going out to spot the local wildlife. Keep your eyes peeled for orangutans, monkeys, tropical birds and more as we venture deep into the rainforest. You’ll work up an appetite from all this walking, as your local guide has prepared a delicious lunch for you to chow down on. We’re then switching up walking for boats! We’re then rubber tubing down the river straight to the hotel doorstep -try and tell us that that isn’t cool?!

Day 4: Bukit Lawang/Padang

Location: Bukit Lawang

Meals Included: BREAKFAST

After eating breakfast we’re catching an afternoon flight to Padang City. It’s a coastal location facing the Indian Ocean and is surrounded by lush green hills -it’s simply stunning. There’s beautiful beaches, amazing swimming opportunities, and views to soak in, so take advantage of some free time in the afternoon once we’ve arrived. This evening is a slightly slower pace as we appreciate the most beautiful sunset and get plenty of rest before a busy day tomorrow!

Day 5: Padang/Mentawai District

Location: Padang

Meals Included: BREAKFAST, LUNCH, DINNER

Rise and shine! We’re making our way to our very own TruExclusive today! Deep in the jungle lies the Mentawai village to spend time with the local people of Sumatra, whose warm hospitality and traditions are tru-ly incredible. This is one of those moments that you’ll cherish forever. We take a fast boat to Siberut and the heart of the village for an authentic rural experience. You’ll have a lunch prepared for the locals before exploring the surrounding farm, where our host family will welcome us with open arms and stay in huts. You can’t do this anywhere else, but you know by now that here at Tru, we don’t do things by halves. We’ll then take a trip to the market, a hub for local handicrafts, textile, and souvenirs. We end the night with a wholesome night of playing games, chatting to the host family, and hearing their stories, sipping ice cold beers, and falling asleep to the mesmerising sounds of the birds around us.

Day 6: Mentawai District

Location: Mentawai District

Meals Included: BREAKFAST, LUNCH, DINNER

It’s a very early start so make the most of the rest of your morning here before jumping into a crazy jungle adventure! It promises to awaken your senses and ignite your sense of adventure. When the clock hits 06:30 AM, get ready to dive deep into Mentawai culture as you spend your day in a traditional house called a “Uma”. This isn’t your typical visit, you’ll make genuine connections, learn foraging and hunting skills, and get to know the village’s Shaman. In the heart of nature, we’ll get to learn the wisdom of the indigenous tribe, from crafting their traditional threads, to mastering survival skills, your time in the jungle will be educational and life changing.

Day 7: Mentawai District/Padang

Location: Mentawai District

Meals Included: BREAKFAST, LUNCH, DINNER

Play Starships by Nicki Minaj because ‘let’s go the beach-beach, let’s go get a wave!’. Get packed up because it’s time to swap trees for sand. In the afternoon, we mosey down to Padang Harbour, and check out Nagari Sungai Pinang, the traditional fishing village that hugs the southern coast of Padang. We’ll spend our last few days in beach huts that are only a stone's throw away from crystal clear waters surrounded by nature -did someone say paradise?! Spend the afternoon however you want before we go to dinner and stop in a live music bar. Sit back, sip a cocktail, and watch the sun go down as we soak up the magic of our last few days in Sumatra.

Day 8: Padang

Location: Padang

Meals Included: BREAKFAST, LUNCH, DINNER

Island hopping time! Say ‘ahoy’ because we’ll be boarding boats and heading to the surrounding marine hotspots to jump in. Grab your snorkel and masks as we dive down and swim alongside corals, fish and even turtles! Turtle Point, Nemo Point and Snake Island are all on the agenda today, where we’ll witness the natural beauty of Indonesia’s quieter island. Feel the sand between your toes, the breeze in your hair and the sun on your face as we have a chilled afternoon before going to a turtle volunteer project. We’ll learn the importance of conservation, how Sumatra supports turtles within the ocean’s ecosystem and even bathe and release turtles back into the ocean! In the evening, we’ll travel back to the beach huts to have dinner and drinks as the sun sets. We’ll be dancing on the beach and singing along to live music, it’s our final night together so make the most of it!

Day 9: Padang/Canggu

Location: Padang

Accommodation: Koa D'Surfer Hotel

It’s time to say goodbye to the stunning island of Sumatra. We’ve had some amazing experiences so far and we can’t wait to continue our journey. Have a chilled check out and make the most of your final moments on this beautiful island before we head to the airport and make our way to Bali!.

We’ve made it to Bali! We’ll meet you at Denpasar airport before taking you to meet your new team. You’ll have a welcome talk from your Travel Ninjas who will guide you through your second half of your trip and meet the rest of the TruFam! We’ll spend the day relaxing by the pool, sunbathing on the beach, or if you’re up for it, exploring Canggu. Get ready to soak in the views because we’re ending the day by having dinner and drinks on a rooftop ready to start your Balian dream.

Day 10: Canggu

Location: Canggu

Accommodation: Koa D'Surfer Hotel

Meals Included: BREAKFAST

What’s a better introduction to Bali’s culture and history than visiting two of its most famous temples? (Make sure you pack something to cover your shoulders) We’ll make our way to the Royal Temple of Taman Ayun! It translates as ‘beautiful garden’ and it’s easy to see why. It's filled with gorgeous architecture, ponds full of exotic fish and lush greenery. Then we’ll head over to Tanah Lot, which is set on a rock formation and is so fun to explore. After a day of culture, get your dancing shoes on because we’re going OUT OUT. We’ll watch the sunset on one of the most picturesque beaches, before a big night out in Canggu. You may thank us, but your liver definitely won’t (Pretty Poison is also a cool club to check out, it’s essentially a giant skatepark indoors with bars and a dancefloor).

Day 11: Canggu

Location: Canggu

Accommodation: Koa D'Surfer Hotel

Meals Included: BREAKFAST

We hope you’ve recovered from last night's boozing because we’re gonna go catch some bitchin’ waves. Get your board and your swimsuits because it’s time for your very own surf lesson on Kuta Beach, one of the best places to surf in Asia. Here, one of the best local Kuta instructors will teach you the basics of surfing, starting with how to stand up because trust us, it’s bloody hard. After a day on the crystal-clear waters, we’re going to head back and chill. Relax at the rooftop pool, or the beach, or the bar -we know we’ll definitely be at the bar.

Day 12: Canggu/Ubud

Location: Canggu

Meals Included: BREAKFAST

Make sure you’re up and packed because today we’re going to Ubud. Ubud is famous for its terraced rice paddies, temples, shrines, and yes, monkeys. We’ll stop off on the way to cool off in the most famous waterfall, Tegenungan waterfall, so make sure your cameras are charged and ready to snap some pics. If you can get a good picture of you emerging from the water flicking your hair, we’ll be impressed because we tried it and it’s not giving Little Mermaid at all. Once we’ve checked into the hotel, you’ll have time to do whatever you want whether you want to explore, chat to local people, or eat delicious food, before we go to one of Bali’s coolest live music destinations -it’s going to be a fun evening!

Day 13: Ubud

Location: Ubud

Meals Included: BREAKFAST, LUNCH

Time for a Tru-ly unforgettable day (see what we did there?) with a Tru Exclusive. Gordon Ramsey and Jamie Oliver haven’t got sh*t on you after you’ve taken part in a traditional Indonesian cooking class! We’ll start by having breakfast, before having a sneak peek at the freshest ingredients at the local markets. Then we’ll join the amazing Wayan and learn how to cook some of Bali’s famous dishes, as well as Canang Sari, the flower offerings made for the God. Obviously you’ll then get to eat all of the delicious food you’ve made today. Once our bellies are literally at capacity of how much Balinese food we can stuff ourselves with, we’re going to walk it off at the famous, sacred Monkey Forest. Make sure you don’t have sunglasses on your head, headphones in, designer bags, or dangling necklaces because these literal cheeky monkeys will nick whatever you have to hand. That Louis Vuitton cross body bag you have? Yeah, don’t bring that. But it’s a bucket list moment, it’s believed the hundreds of monkeys protect the temples inside, they mean a lot to the Balinese people. Then in classic Tru style, we’ll head back, and you’ll eat and drink with your TruFam and catch up and talk about the memories you’ve made so far.

Day 14: Ubud

Location: Ubud

Meals Included: BREAKFAST

Fun fact: Half of the world’s population's daily diet is 20% rice! Get ready for one of the most famous and exciting things to do in Bali -wander through the stunning rice terraces of Tegalalang. Trek through the Ubud valleys, drink from a fresh coconut, and get the Insta worthy pic of you on a swing flying over the terraces that everyone recognises and will be jealous over! Whilst taking in the sites, you’ll also learn the importance of the grains of rice in the Balinese, and world, economy. After all of this, we’ll take you to Kintamani for some lunch overlooking the active volcano Mount Batur. The evening is all yours, spend it topping up your tan, picking up souvenirs at the vibrant, thriving markets, or drinking even more beer!

Day 15: Ubud/Gili Trawangan

Location: Ubud

Meals Included: BREAKFAST

After a week of exploring and culture, we think it’s time we hit the beaches b*tchessss! We’re jumping on a bus before boarding on a ferry to the stunning Gili Trawangan (locally known as Gili T). We’ll check into our tropical accommodation in the heart of the island, where we’ll spend our final free days. Kick your feet back, paddle in the sparkling waters or sunbathe on the pristine, sandy beaches. There’s an incredible night life on this island, so get that bucket in hand and get ready to live it up!

Day 16: Gili Trawangan

Location: Gili Trawangan

Meals Included: BREAKFAST

It’s called ‘island hopping’, we call it sitting on a boat, feeling the sea breeze in your hair, and laying in the sun, aka bliss! We’ll hop around three islands, Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno, and Gili Air, home to some of the most incredible snorkel spots. Get those snorkels on because you’ll see turtles (did someone saw aw?), stunning coral, and diverse marine life.

Day 17: Gili Trawangan

Location: Gili Trawangan

Meals Included: BREAKFAST

Today we’re exploring the whole island on Gili T’s only mode of transport, pushbike! Think Ariana Grande Side to Side because we’re going to cycle around this beautiful island and explore all of the nooks and crannies, before taking a small trek uphill to the best viewpoint Gili T has to offer. You’ll then get the chance to enjoy one final sunset with your TruFam and reminisce about your epic time in Bali. You’ll have a farewell dinner (no tears allowed!) before finishing off with a small party to celebrate the best 18 days of your life.

Day 18: Gili Trawangan

Location: Gili Trawangan

Meals Included: BREAKFAST

Well, the final day has arrived. We know, it’s sad, but on the bright side you’ve had a memorable experience and met some friends for life! You’ll have a chilled check out, but if you’ve caught the travel bug and don’t want this to be the end, your Travel Ninja is on hand to help you on to your next adventure. Guys, it’s been a wild one.

Awesome trip, great way to...

17-Apr-2024

Awesome trip, great way to see so much of Mexico in a short space of time. Top moments were the beach at Holbox, swimming in the 7 colours lagoon, experiencing the cenotes, all the guacamole, delicious breakfast recommendations, seeing Xichen Itsa and biking in Tulum. Our guide was Eve and she was THE BEST. We have done a bunch of other trips and she was by far the most personable, creative, fun, lovely person with a lot of experience and wonderful ability to share her knowledge with us. Highly recommend this trip to anyone who wants to party and catch a lot of culture all in one trip. I loved that the group was only 10 people, gave us a chance to meet everyone and there wasn’t a divide in the group nor too many people.

Words can not describe how...

10-Dec-2023

Words can not describe how amazing this trip was! Especially our tour guide Kevin, he is a wonderful person and made the trip even better than I could have hoped for! The best part was i decided to share this experience with my 73 year old dad, and Kevin and the rest of the group were wounderful with him, nothing was ever a problem and if there was they would go out of their way to make sure he shared the same experience as the rest of us. Especially very step stair, my heart would be in my mouth but by day two they all had a system where they would all grab an arm each and someone would stand in front just in case he slipped, it was so heartwarming to see 🥺 One morning Kevin even went out of his way to take dad on a walking tour of Hanoi but instead of walking, dad was carried on a push bike so that he didn’t miss out and then he later came to collect us and took us out on the same tour on foot. He made me and my dad feel like we weren’t a burden or anything! He was utterly amazing and I’m so thankful he was our tour guide. Thank you Kevin for being such an amazing person and going above and beyond for us. I recommend this tour to anyone! And don’t be afraid to take your mum or dad because I promise you’ll be in safe hands with Kevin 🥰 lots of love Betty Bee and Mr Tony 🖤💛

I absolutely loved my TruTravels!

27-May-2022

I absolutely loved my trutravels experiences! I did the Colombia and Costa Rica trip and had the best time! Everything was very well planned out, the leaders were amazing, and I met so many cool people. I’ll definitely be doing more trips in the future!

Charlotte  

I would definitely recommend Tru travels

05-Jul-2022

I would definitely recommend Tru travels, I’ve had an amazing and unforgettable trip. Our tour guides Nonnie and Gun were incredible - organised and informative but most importantly enormous fun. I’ve made friends for life and I’m heartbroken to be leaving. I’m very glad I decided to do this tour.

I am on my final...

29-Sep-2023

I am on my final day of the 10 day Bali Experience and I honestly can’t put into words how much I’ve loved my trip. As my first time solo travelling I was a bit nervous, but this was the perfect trip. Everything about it has been amazing and the activities have exceeded my expectations. One of the best things about the trip was our tour guide - Ibing we love you soooo much. Ibing has been so kind, caring and helpful and has always gone above and beyond to make sure everyone in the group feels safe and is having a great time. I am going to miss Ibing and my whole TruTravels family so much.

Highly recommend the Mexico trip 🌮🇲🇽. I had the BEST time. Eve, our guide, made it extra special. She was so knowledgeable, fun and helpful. I felt safe and part of the group the entire time. Thank you Eve and the rest of the Trutravels gang 💙

I did the Vietnam Experience...

20-Jan-2024

I did the Vietnam Experience with Lucas and it was an amazing tour! He was on time with all the info we needed, super organized and great company to hang out with! Any culture or history questions were answered and we learned lots of things about this amazing country! I really liked how respectful and mindful he was of others; He knew how to deal with the more sensitive people in the group and was super nice to everyone! My highlights of the trip where : Hoi An and Ninh Binh 😊 The activities were so much fun and the views incredible!! Also, despite the rainy weather he made sure we had a great time! I would definitely recommend him to my friends! Thanks Lucas for a great trip!!

Angelina  

I would 100% recommend!

21-Jul-2022

Just finished the 21 day northern Thailand and beaches tour. The tour guides on both parts (Scotty, Whisky, Arthur) were amazing: fun, warm, organised, informative and much more. I really enjoyed the action packed days on the Northern tour including the bike riding, Elephant Sanctuary, waterfalls and water park. I also liked that the south was more chill with beach days, swimming, kayaking and evening parties. I would 100% recommend!

This was the second tour...

21-Sep-2023

This was the second tour I have done with TruTravels. I have done the Bali experience and the Vietnam tour which were both amazing. The Vietnam tour has been absolutely incredible! The trip wouldn’t have been the same without our tour guide Lucas. He was super friendly, funny and confident from the get go. I loved that on the first night he gave us all a bracelet which was a really nice touch to start the tour with. Lucas was always helpful and knowledgeable. If we ever had any questions (whether it was to do with transport, culture history etc.), he always answered well. This meant that the tour was very culturally enriching and I felt as though I got to learn a lot of really interesting information about Vietnam. Lucas was also absolutely hilarious and would joke about with all of us which made it feel as though we were all a big family. My favourite parts were Ha long Bay, Ninh Binh and Hoi An. The views were stunning and the tour activities were so fun. On the last night, Lucas had handwritten a postcard which was personalised to each of us. He then played the guitar and sang us a song, which made some of us cry. We were all very emotional to be leaving and Lucas/ the rest of the group has left a mark. The tour will have a special place in my heart, thanks to Lucas. Overall, Lucas was not just our tour guide, he was our friend. I’ve booked another true travels tour because I loved it so much. I would definitely recommend!
