Trips with Jodie are always an adventure! And India for Holi was no exception. Jodie finds wonderful places to stay and unique things to do on her small group trips. And although the cities on this trip were much bigger, more hectic, and crowded than I had expected, we had enough restful time to balance it all out. There's nothing like seeing/visiting one of the seven wonders of the world (Taj Mahal) in person, visiting an ancient mosque, temple, or fort, or experiencing one of the most famous celebrations in the world (Holi) with locals as well as our own little group. And since our group had had enough forts on our tour, we were flexible and Jodie found us an extra day/night "glamping" in the desert--simply unforgettable and one of my highlights! Our accommodations were wonderful and the Indian food so good!! And even though we were finishing up our trip as the Coronavirus pandemic was taking hold, Jodie was a calm presence but also pragmatic--we all got out of the country unscathed! I will travel with Globe Drifters again!

I was a little nervous when I looked into the Thailand 2019 trip – Globe Drifters is a smaller company, and I couldn’t find much information about them. It took a small leap of faith, but I am so happy that I went on this tour. I found that that company responded to my inquiries pretty quickly, so don’t be shy with questions. Everything begins and ends with Jodie, the founder of the company, and our guide for Thailand 2019. I really like that she keeps the tour group small as it was easier to form bonds within the group. It became obvious Jodie knew the country very well, and our group greatly appreciated the work she put in to make the tour go as smoothly as it did. The locations alternated between dense, highly trafficked areas (Bangkok, Chang Mai) and less busy areas (Krabi, Khao Sok National Forest). I especially appreciated the amount of flexibility that was planned into the itinerary, so I could break off and participate in independent activities when I wanted. I don’t really have “highlights” as I found the trip to be enjoyable from beginning to end. I would absolutely book a tour with Globe Drifters again.
Thank you to Globedrifter for organizing such an amazing trip. There were so many wonderful highlights and experiences along this tour. I would highly recommend it.
This is my 2nd trip with Globe Drifters, and I had a great time with them. The Vietnam portion was great; our tour guide Joy was organized, thorough, and very sweet. I loved our time in Vietnam! Cambodia was lovely but a harder place to travel just given the level of poverty and underdevelopment. The people were gracious and kind. The temples were breathtaking. This portion of the trip was a little less organized due to some last minute changes, but it did not take away from my enjoyment of the trip in general. Before booking, take note that this is a tour that is well suited towards more active, adventurous travelers. It’s almost a backpackers type of trip (with nicer accommodations though). SE Asia is not for the novice traveler so be prepared to be sweaty, uncomfortable, and tired. But it’s all very much worth it and you will gain so much perspective about two very resilient countries and people.
an amazing adventure that gave me a better understanding of an Islamic culture. the diversity of villages, terrain and sites was wonderful. overall, a good group of people except for a few outliers.
