Xtreme Gap/Real Gap


Has anybody done the Thailand experience with either Xtreme Gap or Real Gap? Thinking of going but can't find reviews for Xtreme Gap, and Real Gap seems to be mixed. Any advice?

do the xtreme version

I did the Xtreme Gap Thailand experience last year, it was amazing! I would defo recommend xtreme gap. It did work out more expensive than real gap which put me off initially, but I definitely made the right choice because there were loads of nice things included with the xtreme trip, in the real Trip seemed to offer much less in comparison. There were also lots of negative reviews of real gap on gapyear.com which swung it for me.

It was the first time I had been travelling on my own, so I think it was actually the perfect way to start travelling, the group was a great laugh, and I chose to do the elephant option in the second week (such good fun I think I now and secretly in love with elephants!).

Ko Tao was definitely the highlight of my trip, there were also quite a few people travelling withxtreme gap on Koh Tao, so it was a great to meet new people on the islands, and meeting and was pretty easy because we all went out for dinner tthe first evening.

I only wish I had taken a little bit longer in Thailand, it is a beautiful country, I can't really fault xtreme gap so I would definitely recommend xtreme gap experience.
