Day 1: London
Location: London

Welcome to the bustling metropolis of London, where the iconic double decker buses bid you 'Cheerio!' - well, not really but hey, welcome to London! Check in and relax before meeting up with your new TruFam in the evening for dinner and drinks. Our journey begins right by London Bridge so if you’ve got the afternoon free perhaps check out Borough Market, a foodie's paradise and one of the largest food markets in London! After a welcome speech, some good food, we’ll head out to see London by night. Trust us, it’s iconic!

Day 2: London/Paris
Location: London
Meals Included: BREAKFAST

It’s time to say Au Revior to London and Bonjour to our next destination. That’s right, we’re heading to Paris. Today, we embark on an adventure as we board the Eurostar bound for the City of Love. After settling into our hostel and a quick freshen up, the afternoon is free to do as we please. We have the opportunity to explore the enchanting streets for a mix of sightseeing, eating the local delicacies and maybe a glass of wine - we’re in Paris after all!

Day 3: Paris
Location: Paris

Today, we're on a mission to conquer the romantic allure of Paris. Join us as we explore this beautiful city. We’ll catch a glimpse of the iconic Arc du Triomphe, and, of course no trip to Paris would be complete without seeing the Eiffel Tower, viewed from some of the best vantage points. Pose for those pics and grab those Insta shots before we head to our next stop. Prepare to be whisked away to the enchanting Montmartre area, where you'll discover the magnificent Sacré-Cœur from the top of dome, the alluring Moulin Rouge, the romantic 'Le Mur des Je t'aime,' and more. Hey, it’s not called the City of Love for no reason! In the evening we’ll head out for dinner and drinks and maybe a dance or two.

Day 4: Paris/Amsterdam
Location: Paris

It's time to set sail for the 'Venice of the North' - Amsterdam! We’ll hop on the train before checking into our hostel.

Meals Included: BREAKFAST

Today, Amsterdam reveals its artistic and aquatic secrets in all their splendour. We'll begin with an 'underground tour' offering a unique perspective of the city through the eyes of someone who used to live on the streets who’ll show us the city in a new light. It’s important to see every destination from a different perspective and understand what makes Amsterdam what it is today. Afterwards, you'll have plenty of time to strike a pose by the picturesque canals. As the day unfolds, we'll embark on a boozy canal cruise. Set sail with the TruFam beer in hand as we see the city by water!

Day 6: Amsterdam/Berlin

Meals Included: BREAKFAST

Today’s a travel day and trust us, it’s needed after an unforgettable few days in some of Europe’s biggest cities. Catch some zzzz’s as we head to our next destination. Say Guten Tag to Berlin and our home for the next two nights. Our hostel nestles in the Mitte district, a haven for eateries and drinkeries so it’s the perfect place for our TruTravels adventure.

Day 7: Berlin

Prepare to dive into Berlin's history and vibrant art scene. We’ll head on a walking tour as our knowledgeable local guide takes us to iconic landmarks such as the Brandenburg Gate, the awe-inspiring German Parliament Building, the poignant Holocaust Memorial, the historic Berlin Wall, and the intriguing Checkpoint Charlie (it's not quite what you might expect!). After a lunch stop, we'll immerse ourselves in the world of graffiti art at the East Side Gallery, where Berlin's past and present collide.

Meals Included: BREAKFAST

Today is a travel day so take the time to take in the scenic journey, sit back and relax.

But hold onto your hats because the adventure is far from over! After our chocolaty escapades, we'll be hitting up some of Vienna's trendiest bars to celebrate our last night in Austria with a bang. Sip on signature cocktails, challenge your TruFam to an epic dance-off, or simply kick back and soak it all in while you remind yourself that, yes, you are indeed living the European dream!

Words can not describe how...


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!


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!


I would definitely recommend Tru travels


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...


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.

I did the Vietnam Experience...


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!!


I would 100% recommend!


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...


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!

Just completed the Bali Bliss...


Just completed the Bali Bliss Experience and it was brilliant. It was my second time travelling with TruTravels having been Mexico last year with them. On the Bali Bliss tour we had Monk as our tour leader and we was awesome. Always making sure everyone was having a good time, he was a lot of fun and brought so much energy to the tour. Highly recommend!!

Brandon Le (Google Reviewer)  

I had the best time...


I had the best time on the Bali Bliss tour with Tru Travels and our amazing tour guide Ovinda. She made sure everyone felt included and did everything she could to make our time the most enjoyable experience ever. The experience is such a special trip from the amazing activities and meeting the most amazing people and I have made such good friends with everyone on the tour. As a first time solo traveller, I had many doubts but all the stress was taken away by Ovinda and now I am more excited than ever to continue my travels! I highly recommend booking with Tru Travels and anyone who will have Ovinda as their tour guide would be so lucky to have her!
