We have just finished our 3 month trip around South East Asia using bamba experience, we did the 'Bamba Buddah Ways' and 'Thai Island Hopping'.

Bamba Experience has just been the best guide ever. Every tour has been so exciting. (We did Buddha Ways and Thai Island Hopping) There is such a range of activities from Snorkelling in Nha Trang to day of trekking in Chiang Mai! Bamba have been so good at informing us on all the details needed for departures and activities! Bamba... More

Bamba proved very helpful for us, we were two 20 year olds who had never been away from home on our own for longer than a couple of days. It was great being able to book a bus or a trip with just an email and even if we emailed them really they would still try and help us with... More

Had a really good trek and our guide cecar was so good.. - there is only one minus ( a big one ) I don't see what we get more for the 300 US $ we paid more then the other guys we meet up with for river rafting and zip lining. But otherwise i was happy with it.

All the important things have been great: Food - very delicious, tents - waterproof, sleeping bags - just warm enough (you need a warm pyjama anyway). The guide was very experienced. Although we didn't like the fact, that she made us feel, that we have to spend money, because we are tourists.For example when we had breakfast at a local... More

For me as a first time backpacker Bamba was a perfect solution. They help you out whenever they can, try to adjust your itinerary to your wishes plus there are some great experiences included. I was very satisfied with the friendly, fast and helpful staff at Bamba, so I would most certainly recommend!!

This was an amazing experience which I recommend everyone to do. To do the four days trek and then the last day end up in Machu Picchu is in my opinion the best way to do it.

Did the four day Inca Trail to Machu Picchu with Bamba Experience and had a great time. The food was truly amazing (3 course meal every day) and the crew with the guide and the porters were all just great. Only negative thing is that the tip was not included in the (pretty high) price we paid beforehand. Since the... More
